@JohnnyShoulder I beat him on PS3 and with a magic build in this version, but as you can see from those vids, I can't even get behind him usually. If I do, he just shield slams so soon I can't get anything done. I've even been killed it one hit from one of his little back hops. It's confusing the hell out of me since I don't remember him being like this, doing so much damage, and since I started as a knight I should have good defense.

Not sure why I'm finding DeS so hard - I did most BB bosses first try. I just feel like I take catastrophic damage from most attacks, nor just these bosses.

@kyleforrester87 Any easy to get better armour early on? Bearing in mind I also can't do Armour Spider so 2-2 and onwards is a no go for now.

@Matroska Not sure what else to suggest really, apart from the usual of levelling up your character and upgrading your weapons as much as you can. Maybe have a look at a video walkthrough or on Fextralife at their written guides. If you are really struggling, you could try summoning, but you need to be in human form for that.

@kyleforrester87 @JohnnyShoulder Well I'll stick at it, though thanks to the PS+ Collection I've started playing MHW again so now I'm gonna end trying to roll with X in DeS, I bet. šŸ˜­

Anyway, I love the photo mode.

After being stuck on Flamelurker for a bit I tried the other areas, which were all a breeze! Defeated four or five bosses without dying, so went back to Flamelurker's lair and defeated him as well without any issues. Feels like I'm overlevelled now!

@Matroska Not sure if you're still in world 2, but my sword initially didn't work on the enemies there either. Instead, try a pickaxe which these fellows drop a lot or can be bought from the chap at the beginning of the level as its damage to these enemies is a lot higher.

@ShaiHulud @Matroska That is a good point, I've been using the Winged Spear for the most, only changing it to the Crescent Falchion for the Flamelurker fight and the Great Club for the silver skeletons.

@Matroska I just liked clobbering em with a club! R1 sends them flying!

My mate sent me this from Astro's Playroom the other day. Does it look familiar?

@JohnnyShoulder There's so many awesome references in Astro's Playroom, it almost made me feel a tad sentimental! I couldn't believe it when I saw a Pyramid bot dragging another bot, and the Death Stranding bot was hilarious as well.

@ShaiHulud There are! I think I missed a few on the first level I tried, so really wanna go back and see them.

@JohnnyShoulder Have you played enough to give me a proper impression of how the difficulty compares to Dark Souls 1, Dark Souls 3 & Bloodborne yet? Sorry for asking repeatedly, by the way, hope it didn't annoy you too much.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic This probably differs for most people, but in my experience the first soulsborne you play is by far the hardest. I haven't played DS3 that much, but I'd say Demon's Souls is the easiest of the lot.

JohnnyShoulder

@Draco_V_Ecliptic No problem at all sir. I agree with @ShaiHulud, in that if you have played a few of the games before, this should cause you no problems. A steady frame rate also helps massively in this game. Yes some of the runs to the bosses can be quite epic, but nothing I've found too strenuous. Dark Souls 3 would be my toughest, with this battling from being easiest with DS2. And I'm not counting Sekiro either.

@JohnnyShoulder Absolutely agree about the frame rate. I remember Blighttown clearly on my X360, not because of the scenery but more so because of the godawful frame rate there. Playing on a smooth 60 fps definitely helps a lot.

@JohnnyShoulder Which was the hardest Souls game for you then? (excluding Sekiro) Which ones have you beaten in the series? All of them??!?!? I've only beaten Miyazaki's Souls games excluding Demon's, which means it would be a fitting bellweather in my cap. And thanks for the feedback, it's helped me make my mind up about getting the game, once I can afford it and the console.

@ShaiHulud Yeah I know what you mean - First one for me was Bloodborne and that probably was the hardest! I've beaten 3 & 1 now, onto Demon's next, although Bloodborne is very hard anyway. But for me it was just a total cheese anyhow, running past the majority of the PvE enemies , the fodder, just to get to those GREAT bosses!

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I loved how agile you were in Bloodborne. It's the latest soulsborne game I finished, so coming back to Demon's Souls I had to readjust as dodging is so slow now.

@JohnnyShoulder I think Iā€™d say Dark Souls 3 was the hardest too, at least if it was my first game. Obviously DS1 was hardest for me as it was the first one I played! Bloodborne strangely peaks in difficulty about 3 hours in but the DLC is absolutely brutal. Dark Souls 2 is hard in the sense that the absolutely ass mechanics create artificial difficulty šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@Matroska - A few advise below in which hope it can help out in beating the Tower knight and Armor spider since I also start out as knight.

1) Get Crescent Falchion in 4-1, it help alot in the fight with the magic damage, also farm the rolling skeletons which give decent amount of souls in early game.

2) Get purple flame shield for armor spider fight, the fire resistance is perfect for that fight.

3) Instead of rolling away from Tower knight when he do the AOE shield smash, roll towards him instead to get behind him. Then from there always keep your shield up and stay behind him, play safe and hit his feet when opportunities appear in which he will fall soon and hit his head for massive damage.
