WIN! Demon's Souls PS3 Black Phantom Edition

There are few games as brutally demanding as From Software's Demon's Souls, the PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG out this week. Which is why you'll really earn it if you manage to win a copy.

Thanks to Namco Bandai, we have FIVE copies of Demon's Souls on PS3 to give away this week. All five are Black Phantom Editions, too, containing the game, the CD soundtrack, a hardcover artbook and a strategy guide. We're giving away one each day this week. And this being Friday is your final chance to win.

So how do you win?

Demon's Souls takes an unusual approach to online play. You can use stones to jump into the games of other players to both help them and harass them. Players can also leave messages - advice, warnings, poetry and gibberish - etched into the game world for others to read.

We want you to write a message for your fellow competition entrants to read. Leave your message in the comments below by midnight tonight to be in the running to win. The wittiest and most creative messages will win.

As usual, no multiple entries please. And remember, this is your last chance to win!

And Thursday's winner is... thistler, who tickled my punny bone with:

"Wanted: Brave cobbler for shoeing Demon's Soles."

Shouts out to Clintoon, Marty Luther, Loleon and Thomas Lee. So close!

    Do chickens have large talons?

    "It's 106 miles to Boletaria. We've got a horse full of hay, half a flagon of mead, it's dark and we're wearing sun helms.

    Hit it."

    Alan hesitated for a moment before his fingers fell on the typewriter.
    He was taking a huge risk, trying to escape from the dark presence like this, but if it worked and there was a limit to it's power, trying to make the kingdom of Boletaria real would end it.
    The creature would burn out, the world would return to normal and he and Alice would be released.
    He just had to make sure the darkness didn't take control of the narrative again...
    ---
    Alan screamed and rolled to one side as stone splintered in the place he had occupied mere moments ago.
    How had it been possible?
    The darkness couldn't have changed the entire world into this nightmare, nothing could!
    His gun didn't exist in this world, and his torch burned instead of shining.
    There was no darkness, but the evil was far more substantial.
    He just had to survive until...

    I wish these Demon-level competitions had an easy Soul-ution. =[

    There is an invisible bridge across this chasm. Just like in Indiana Jones, honest!

    Warning: Repeated death can have an effect on your... sorry, what was I saying?

    Demon's souls are not redeemable for cash. Do not attempt to buy the game with demon's souls, as this may cause irreperable damage to our society, ecosystem, and economy.

    Do also note that the Australian Demon's Souls will have a tax placed on all soul mining.

    'Japan waz ere 09'

      Scrolling through the comments this morning and noticed it had already been done. Sigh :\

    Be wary those who further tread,
    The beast ahead may slice you dead,
    i stopped to warn the rest of you,
    it has one weakness, this is true,
    Wait until it bears its claws,
    then-- what the f**k?
    I can't pause!?!?
    Damn, these creatures, Now I'm through,
    Not long to live so i say to you,
    The beast is fearsome, tough and quick,
    That goddamn beast can suck my---

    If Pinocchio said his nose was going to grow... would it?

    Always so close yet so far....fml

    First Japan, but the Samurai & Ninjas were expected. They could not halt the demons.

    Next was the rest of Asia with Shaolin Monks, Burmese Ghurkas, Malaysian stick fighters & Pakistani cricketers. But the demons were aware and had prepared.

    Most recently was North America. They tried to poison the demons with deep-fried doughnuts burgers and bacon flavoured ice cream (with fries), but the demons were not deterred for they already knew their appetites were up to the task.

    Now Australia. The demons know little and we have been watching them. Brute force will not defeat them, we must be cunning, we must surprise them and do the unexpected. We will show them what it means to be an Aussie.

    RELEASE THE SHEEP!

    Q: Why did the Demon destroy your mortal body?
    A: He wanted you to get to the other side.

    Just remember, when life hands you Demons, make Demonade - it's good for the soul.
