This isnt the first time that Atlus has decided to allow the servers for Demons Souls to remain online. Every time we hear the news of the online portion of the game shutting down soon, a tear is shed. The same goes for when we get the report that they changed their minds; only the tear is more happiness than sadness.
Atlus reps have joked about the PlayStation 3s title, famous for its brutal and unforgiving gameplay, taking on a life of its own.
Its starting to feel like even if we wanted to, we couldnt shut things down. Honestly, were more worried the servers will shut us down than the other way around.
For those who havent played this game (and shame on you for missing one of the best games in the PlayStation 3s library), the online feature of Demons Souls allows players to view other players mistakes via the ghostly figure that can be activated at any blood stain on the ground. Also, you can call for help against a tough boss or become the victim of a phantom, a player who invades another players world.
Another announcement they made with this was the latest White Tendency event starts on the 20th of this month and lasts until the new year. This will make otherwise unavailable enemies and gear there for the taking, as well as making the game just a bit easier.
