Okay, cool. LobosJr streamed it a month or two ago too, so I wasn't sure if it was just coincidence or what. I started a new guy yesterday, a day late, and was having trouble finding any summon signs. I did get invaded once, though. It's a pain to collect/"farm" stones of ephemeral eyes
I love Dark Souls a lot more, and wasn't too keen on playing more Demon's Souls right now, but I've never really played it online, so I'd like to check that out. Will be playing through this week if anybody wants to connect on NA servers
Also, it looks like the October tendency events aren't working this year? I've never done that either (that I was aware of, anyway -- maybe I did before I knew anything about the series).
