  • News Demon's Souls Remaster Rumours Just Won't Go Away

    The soul still burns

    Ah, good ol’ Demon’s Souls, eh?

    Incredible

    The multiplayer servers for Demon's Souls were supposed to be plunged into darkness this month, but Atlus has managed to find a way to illuminate the cult classic’s online component for the foreseeable future.
