The lights are on
As promised earlier this month, Sony has released a patch that will address the difficulty of the Trials of Archimedes section of the single-player game, and adds some customization options to Ascension's multiplayer.
You will now be able to add "Marks" to your multiplayer avatar, which have been outlined below:
As far as the Trials of Archimedes challenge goes, more green health orbs have been added, and few blue orbs as well. The combat and enemies will remain at the same difficulty, but the health and magic bonuses should make the process a little easier.

That's really cool! Let's mark! Haha.
I beat it yesterday prior to starting Bioshock Infinite. 67% of the trophies on play 1 isn't too shabby and while it took me several tries, the end-game wasn't THAT difficult!
It was difficult but managed to pass it twice.
When one of the dev admits it was too hard, it is likely too hard for those that are less than "hardcore gamerz."
They didnt need to nerf the Trials of Archimedes. I at least didnt have too much trouble with it at all. Like the multiplayer additions though.
I beat it prepatch like a boss
Pffft. The trails of Archimedes was not hard, once you get the right technique going. Also, I like the little touch with the marks for the multiplayer.
It's really only the first section of the Trials that was hard. Took me 4 hours, though. . .I beat the next two challenges first time I got to them.
While I can understand why they patched it, the Trials are more than doable assuming you are completely powered up by that point of the game.
The 1st wave is the real challenge - the Gorgons & Sirens make for a tough combination and took me just under and hour to beat them. For me the key was herding the Sirens to the edge of the platform and using the Hades Magic to knock them to their deaths. Made taking out the Gorgons, SO much easier.
It gets progressively easier after that, as the 2nd wave with the Spear Ladies required a couple of attempts and the 3rd wave with the Centaur literally took me one try.
Now, that's a step in the right direction.
