Had Demon's Souls for over a week now (Soul Lvl 24) and wow its hard, still haven't beat any other boss except of the Phalax (Was close beating the tower Knight though). But am so immersed in the game every loss is a stab to my own heart and every win gives me unparalled joy. What other game has done that?
Try 2-1 or 3-1 if you can't beat 1-2. Or just summon someone.
