I’m a great fan of Dark Souls for so many reasons I can’t even quote them without making a huge paragraph about it, so if you’re actually interested in my opinion, you can read my review of it HERE. When Dark Souls was announced for PC, it also brought another piece of news that kindled my heart: the extra content would be available for PS3 users as DLC. Of course that was the only excuse I needed to get back into the game, and while preparing a new character (or in my case four) for the new challenges to come, I spent about another 100 hours playing this game, and that’s pre-DLC.

If you recall, back in April, we told you about Demon’s Souls servers being shut down this month. However, due to complaints from fans, the servers will be kept up for the foreseeable future. Atlus’ VP of Marketing and Sales, Tim Pivnicny, had this to say:

From Software has a unique way of saying “you shouldnt be online yet”. Players who have obtained a copy before the street release date are constantly being invaded by overpowered Black phantoms courtesy of From Software. 19,000 HP on a Black Phantom is always good news!
