Demon’s Souls is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated games of the year.

It’s nice to see a game that doesn’t pull any punches. It seems to absolutely thrive on its insane difficulty with a promise to you, the pitiful gamer, that it will do everything in its power to kill you… but in a fair manner. And then it will allow other gamers into your game to kill you as well, all for those lovely, lovely souls.

Atlus has released two video walkthroughs of the game to give you an idea of what you’re in for. Check them out!

A few international Chewers are already telling great stories of what it’s like to play through this one on the boards. (Hint: it’s absolutely, positively brutal- but incredibly fulfilling) If all goes well we’ll have a review for you guys soon. For more, check out Atlus’ forums, where they have developer blogs and other goodies.
