The servers for Demon's Souls were shut down earlier today

Demon's Souls meant different things to different players. For me, it was all about the solo journey, uncovering secrets and besting bosses. For others, it was primarily about invading other games, PVP, and co-op. That latter dream end...

Review: Immortal Planet

It has become something of a joke online to compare things to Dark Souls. When writing a review, most writers will opt to reference something popular to cut down on the length of a piece. This is supposed to work in that readers will be fam...
