From what I understand, the game is only 3.6~ gigs, as it was ripped by some pirates. I'm pretty sure that "heavily compressed" is a bunch of bull and just brought up so people won't get it on the 360 or something.

So the area with the orchestral music and the knight that says "get a little scared..." is kind of the portal that connects to everything?

I also saw something weird in the vxds video where he's walking down some stairs, you hear a dragon sound and he suddenly gets +10000 souls?

It's at about 44:30 in http://www.twitch.tv/vxds210/b/295628558

To be honest, I've never played a game of this genre before. Should I not even bother with this or the prequel?

Yeah, he shot one arrow, and the thing died. The stream went ballistic when that happened.

In regards to the game: Do you like dying a lot? Do you like a high but usually fair difficulty?

Also, how much better do you guys think this could run from the hard drive?

Every game I've ever played on the 360 minus Halo 3 and Bulletwitch (wouldn't even install) has performed noticeably better. It also saves wear and tear on your disc drive!

There was a point on the IGN stream last night where the game had a bit of a shitfit on the 360. I remember also watching the vxds stream (PS3) and he had a couple times where the game freaked out.

Regarding being cursed, apparently it has at least one upside. A guy in the sewer says that you can fight the ghosts if you are cursed somehow? I haven't tested it myself though, and I'm not going to purposefully get myself cursed to find out.

edit: vvv I don't follow...

It's an item you can buy. It's like getting cursed but it's temporary.

Also, to Leyburn: You can visit the guy on the roof with the bell and he'll sell you an item for 4k to cure yourself.

Either Pyromancer or Warrior. The Pyro starts with fire magic which will hopefully help to take on enemies rather than a straight melee character. I can also somewhat tune him to how I want as he starts as level one while the warrior starts at level four or five.

I also find the Path of the Dragon to be the most awesome. I cannot wait to try my hand at this game and die several hundred times.

360 user here! I picked up my copy at midnight at Gamestop and got the awesome Collector's Edition. The game is packaged in this awesome tin case with the game inside, the art book, and a code for the other stuff.

I have about 2 hours experience with a Pyromancer. The game is fun, easy in the beginning (which changes as soon as you get into the Undead Burg), and the controls are actually easy to handle. Using LB/RB isn't as bad as I thought it would be. There was a little slowdown in the first area but that immediately went away if you looked in a different direction. My game did hang for about 5 seconds where the screen froze but the sound kept going in the Burg.

Overall, I cannot wait to turn on my 360 again. This game is fun as hell.

Some NPCs can take one or two hits before they freak out. I think it would be too easy to just put your shield up and apologize.

My God, this game is hard.

Some tips: The Masterkey will activate if you open a door that uses it. It is NOT a one time use item. The 360 version seems to have odd slow down when there's a long draw distance. Not bad slowdown but maybe four five frames. And even though it's installed, the game spins the disc in the drive for a bit. There was also a 3MB patch released today but I don't know what it does.

Also, the Dragon Bridge is very hit or miss. Sometimes it'll swoop down and roast you, other times it'll just sit there and chill out. I think the Warrior is a better choice for me as I'm rushing way too much.

I killed the armored boar but I didn't get its head for a helmet. Do you have to kill it a certain way to get it?

You have to kill the boar without backstabbing it. I ran mine into the fire a couple times.

I might add that Endurance lowers your equip weight so that might help you roll faster.

Drop down where the elevator is in Firelink Shrine. It'll start to take you up but instead of riding it up, step off on the second level and fall down the hole. You'll find some goodies there and I think there's some there.
