    I wish I had the time or money to play this.

    I DO, but I decided to instead invest in RAGE. Slightly regretting it now, but it means I can save this for after christmas, when all the glaring bugs have been patched and I'm on a 2-week holiday with which to fill my time. Essentially, when i've finished every possible quest in Skyrim.

    Glaring bugs in Dark Souls? I might understand waiting after xmas to buy Skyrim...TES games tend to be buggy as all hell on release...

    Wait, what? A game that has non of the cliches of casual, linear modern videogames? A non-linear world to explore without hand holding? A game for GAMERS and not some teens/adults who just want to be hip because games are trendy nowdays? Sign me up.

    Are there any notable differences between the 360 and PS3 versions?

    Here's the great thing about Dark Souls, and what makes the Souls series unique: The other day while playing I walked through a doorway, looked down the street, and saw in the distance what appeared to be a giant boar with metal skin. I stopped and said, "Oh, crap, no way I'm going down there," and I explored other areas. No other modern game will do that to you. In any other game, if I saw that I'd march in there without any fear. Intimidation is a paradoxically amazing experience in videogames. Later on, I got up the courage and went after that boar. It killed me super fast. But the second time I came back and killed it, and felt AWESOME.

    Exactly this. Undead Burg. Tall knight in plate armor and huge helmet with his back towards me. Beyond him a shining loot. I stare at his back for MINUTES before deciding i can do this. I coated the weapon with lightning and go for it. He kills me after a long struggle. I go back and nail him and get the item. Having great time. I believe 9 is the right score.
