How's DeS now that the digital download is available?

Is summoning faster now? More newbies to help? Still pretty much "dead"?

 

I might start playing it again soon, so that's why I'm asking. Playing it alone is a bit boring, so being able to summon people would be great!

 

Edit. I just noticed my older thread.. I guess *this* place is the one that's pretty dead, haha. :smileyvery-happy:

I recently purchased this game and I constantly see white ghosts roaming around. I heard some of those are AI? Not sure about that. But most are other players right.

Yeah. I really don't know which one is an AI and which one isn't. The only one I know for sure (since I see it in every playthrough) is the one that pulls the lever in Stonefang that opens the gate.

None of the white ghosts are AI.  They are all other live players in the same area as you.

 

I don't think the availability as a digital download has any effect on summoning.  One has nothing to do with the other.

Actually some of them are AI.. like the one in the Stonefang I mentioned, because you see them even if you play offline. :smileyhappy:

 

With summoning I meant that has the player pool increased, meaning that each area has more players =  more people need help -> faster summoning.

You're supposed to find out those things yourself. :smileywink: After the tutorial, you're pretty much on your own, which is great IMO. I hate games that hold your hand.

 

The difference between soul form and body form is that in soul form your maximun HP is reduced to 50%, which can be increased by wearing the Cling ring. Cling ring's effectiveness also depends on the world tendency.  You also make less noise in soul form and slightly more damage. Soul form is also required to be summoned as a blue phantom.

 

In body form, you have the maximun HP, and you can summon phantoms to help you, or you can get invaded by one.

 

There might be something else, but it's been a while since I've played, so..

Most answers you have about the game can be answered by reviewing the manual.  If you have the digital version, start the game, hit the PS button, and scroll to your game list to view the software version of the manual.
