Demon's Souls Remake: 9 Community Challenges for Prizes

  • Publisert 3 måneder siden

    Runtime: 12:46

    UPDATE: Competitions cancelled.
    When I started these competitions, I hoped PS5 supply would be increased to meet demand..but that's obviously not been the case. It feels wrong to continue with these competitions when the console is in the hands of so few, so I'm going to honour all November 30th submissions, but will indefinitely suspend the competitions due on December 17th. So that's:
    -Crystal Lizard Race
    -NPC Hunter Race
    -SL1 Race
    -Lore Friendly (PvP)
    I'm really sorry for my poor judgment on this - I was way too ambitious. If you planned on competing in the above competitions, please send through your entry regardless. If there comes a time where I feel it's right to open up these competitions again, your submission will be counted.
    To somewhat make up for this, I put more prize money into the Photo Mode competitions, since it was far more accessible, and over a hundred people competed in this. You can see these winners here: VaatiVidya/status/1333813227839393793

Good news for those of you without capture cards! Playstation have finally revealed details about the "Create" button and the capture capabilities of the PS5. Simply put, you'll be able to record in 1080p or 4k, up to 60 minutes of gameplay, then copy to a USB drive and submit to a competition. Read more here: https://blog.playstation.com/2020/11/09/ps5-the-ultimate-faq/

The new capture feature has seriously helped me out on the content creation side of things! Up until now not having a good enough PC has been throttling my ability to capture and stream in 1080p. Soo happy now!!

Lol I hope they just release it for PC at some point sooner than later, 'cause over half of us couldn't even get a ps5... that leaves people like me who only have a PC out of the challenges completely.. if nothing else gives PS5 players a HUGE head start.

Best early game build guaranteed will be royalty class with magic weapon and some stat combo to buff it. At least if it's being judged primarily on ease of build and sheer power. That shit tears through early game enemies and bosses. And the magic now feels SOOOOOO good to use in the game. Bluepoint made it FEEL powerful to use, not just be powerful. The sound design is incredible.

I'm sorry, but it's far too early to be putting up contests when the vast majority of people are incapable of even buying the new console, due to all of the scalpers who've essentially screwed everyone over with bots and reselling the console for 4-5x the original price

Guess ill give a try at the lore friendly one, cause it seens that it's the only one im capable of doing without trouble. Also all these challenges look really fun so i might try them later, not on competition, but for pure fun. Penetrator armor set and greatsword, i'll be coming for you! Edit: I thought for a while and my lore friendly fight will contain me as the penetrator, and maybe someone else as a tower knight cosplay or a oolan cosplay. If i fight alone, ill just fight at anywhere in boletaria and try to emulate the penetrator boss fight, if i get paired with a tower knight, the tower knight will be my tank, i'll be behind him for most of the time and anytime i have an oportunity to attack ill jump from behind you and attack. If i get paired with a oolan, my duty will be to block the enemy path, i'll defend you, while you will be at elevated points and snipe enemies from above. Really simple but i thought it was a cool idea.

I'd love to try those out, been a souls fan since the original demons souls, but I am running into a problem here sadly. There's a shortage of ps5 being delivered to some countries, mine included. Many of us wont see our ps5 arriving before christmas, maybe not even until 2021. That makes it quite hard to enter the competition within said dates.. :(

I've been playing ds remastered alot recently, and I noticed something. The more I look at it, I think solaire is gwyn. He's on a mission to find a sun. A source of fire that will help the kingdom survive, but in the end he doesn't find it and goes mad, or just gets really depressed if you save him, because in his journey he loses his actual son "namless king" irony as f. I think thats why he says "was it all a lie? Have I done this all, for nothing? Oh, my dear sun.......what now, what should I do.......My sun, my dear, dear sun..." it always seems like he's doing his quest but for his lineage not himself like any dad, and like alot of fathers he achieves his goals, but losses his kids respect because of the extent he went to to acheive that goal, like Walter White from breaking bad

I know it is a hackneyed idea - but do you think we will get a PC port for Demon Souls? I am clutching at straws asking you - if you say yes hope is alive! I mean, it seems (in a business sense) a super bad decision not to as the revenue would be huge. Let alone catering to the community desire. What are your thoughts?

1:20 no, it's *guaranteed* that the PS5 will have inbuilt recording capabilities, and it will surely be AT LEAST 1080p at 60fps. The PS4 could record and stream at 720p 60fps, or 1080p 30fps. The regular version, not Pro.
