The message is loud and clear. This game will be harder than Demon's Souls

Wow, no loading.

One huge world instead of pieces. Sounds awesome.

But does this mean there will be no towns for me to go take a pee?

why would you want to go back to town to take a pee when you're exploring in the swamp most of the time? ;P

Didn't they say there would be no safe zones? Or did I read that wrong?
#5TriangleHardPosted 2/7/2011 12:21:52 PM
^That's what I read too.

Not sure what that means though. I wonder if that means that in dungeon, there won't be safe place for you to rest, or there's no safe place..... PERIOD.

If there's no safe place, that means I'll be using title screen quite a bit lol.

I think the beacon fires might be sort of mini-Nexi; a safe haven to repair, level up, etc.

Fire beacon campsites are temporary safe zones. I'm guessing monsters won't travel within the light.

Wait, has it confirmed that they're only temporary? IIRC according to one of the interviews they were permanent and you could return to them anytime you liked.

I meant temporary in the sense that you have to leave at some point. XD

I'm not sure who started the 'they burn out' rumor. That would be the sort of 'too spicy, I don't want this game anymore' difficulty that the developers would likely cut.
