The lights are on
Demon's Souls was notorious for being a punishingly difficult RPG. Will From Software's next entry in the genre, Dark Souls, be any easier? According to the game's director, no.
Speaking in a Q&A over at the PlayStation Blog, director Hidetaka Miyazaki reveals that the team's intention is to make Dark Souls even more challenging: "With Dark Souls, there is no intention to decrease the difficulty at all. Actually, we intend to increase the difficulty of the game," he says. "This is an analogy we often use: We are trying to create a game that is spicy. And we want to make it as spicy as possible. But it’s edible and tastes good and leaves you wanting more."
Fans of Demon Souls should definitely keep a glass of milk handy to cool down the heat. Even though Dark Souls isn't technically a sequel, it looks like it shares many of the same concepts and mechanics. For even more tidbits about this PS3/360 game from Namco Bandai, check out the full interview.

I love it when games are super hard for some reason. i mean it pisses me off sometimes but that why its fun. It keeps you going
As long as there is the great balance that was in Demon's Souls I am all aboard for some spice.
Is that even possible!
Oh boy. I better start stocking up on extra controlers. I see several broken ones in my future.
i will be ready to accept the challenge.
Oh dear god. It took me FOREVER to get anything done because i'm not good at taking my time, and now its harder. Well of course it is.
good. demon souls was way to easy.
Doesn't matter to me. I'll just try to die less.
