Demon’s Souls players, take care on Halloween

Playing Demon’s Souls online? Good for you. Great game. But if you are, you may want to proceed with caution this Halloween. Atlus is telling us that the “Old One’s power grows,” and that “his minions will be more powerful” on All Hallow’s Eve. Decoded, this means that you’re going to get your ass kicked, as the game’s difficulty will be increased temporarily.

The upside? The rewards for defeating said minions will also increase.

Atlus sends along a warning:

We don’t know how long this dark tendency will last, but we do advise those prone to controller-into-LCD syndrome to proceed carefully.

I’m one of those prone to controller tossing. I may steer clear and eat Tootsie Rolls instead.
