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!

    Friends, I come with a tale; a tale to warn you of the perils of obsession and overdedication...a tale...of the


    William Stalvern waited. The water above him wobbled and dropped all around him. There were demons in the dungeon. He didn't see them, but had expected them now for years. His warnings to Ceptan Joson were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
    William was a knight for fourteen years. When he was young he watched the mounted knights and he said to dad "I want to be on the horses daddy."
    Dad said "No! You will BE KILL BY DEMONS"
    There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in the dungeon of the Boletarian palace he knew there were demons.
    "This is Joson" William heard him calling. "You must fight the demons!"
    So William gotted his fire magic and blew up the wall.
    "HE GOING TO KILL US" said the demons
    "I will shoot at him" said the superdemon and he fired a soul ray. William fireballed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
    "No! I must kill the demons" he shouted. He heard Joson call "No, William. You are the demons"
    And then William was a zombie.

    Spoiler: You will die after 658 more steps.

    Will you guys stop leaving messages everywhere written in blood?
    As helpful as the comments may be it's kind of hard when it also attracts every demon within pain delivery range.....

    What ever lies ahead will most likely, probably, maybe, 100% destroy you. Think about your souls: 'To lose or not to lose?' That is the question. ;D

    To Santa,

    Please Santa, do not use the same wrapping paper as my mummy and daddy

    Looks like you took a wrong turn at Albuquerque...

    Asimovy used Persistant Entries.

    It was ineffective!

    Kotaku AU used Thought Of Buying Demon's Souls.

    It was super effective!

    Asimovy has fainted.

    It’s hard to be witty
    So please take some pity
    And award this game
    To a fellow who is lame.

    I can’t bring the lolz
    But I’d love Demon’s Souls.
    Is it possible that self-deprecation
    Could earn me a copy for Playstation?

    I don’t have the cash
    To afford this hack ‘n’ slash.
    I’m fulltime at uni
    So my bank balance is puny.

    No coin and no wit.
    And now rhyming like a tit.
    I implore your sympathy
    To gift me this RPG.

    On my hands and knees
    I’m begging you, please.
    My lack of dignity may sicken
    But at least I have chicken.

    A Message from 2009...

    You have reached the BORDERLANDS, beyond this sign you will the RED's, one of the many FACTION's that inhabit the lands, who use GUERRILLA like tactics. As you progress through the corridors the SHADOWs may give you a COMPLEX.

    Be careful and not lay waste to the friendlies inside, otherwise you will likely create your own HOUSE OF THE DEAD who will turn against you, that HALO will fall right off and not even an ORBITAL DROP SHICK TROOPER could save you.

    Don't be a wuss though, your attacks must be BRUTAL for your LEGEND to grow, just like a FLOWER overcoming brick and mortar. There are DEMON's ahead who sap the very SOULS of men, move quickly and silently like an ASSASSIN, this is my CREED TOO (2) you.

    If you don't believe me, then may BATMAN himself come down and drag your crazy ass over to ARKHAM ASYLUM!

    Sadly this message is a FAR CRY from the message in 2... ummm, yeah that's right, 2008.

    Some demons Rock!
    Some demons Roll!
    But this demon....
    ......... this demon has Soul!

    A new characters on Demon Souls bears death from birth. The player fears death, but lives only to die.It starts with Boletaria.Boletaria becomes fear.Fear leads to frustration... frustration leads to lack of focus... lack of focus leads to suffering...The only cure for this fear is total focus and stratergy.You will become a victim of your own fear. You can only save yourself by harvesting the origin of all things - the soul.
    Now, the theory is undeniable. Your participation in this competition proves it. All things live to perish. At last, life has uncovered this truth. Now, it is time to end this competition.... by electing me as the winner off this round and thus rejecting the urge to purge anyone else off their live by giving them access to this game... the choice is yours gentlemen... your soul or theirs.

    Beware intrepid adventurer. Beyond lies my ex-wife. Not only will she suck the life out of you, but also your souls.

    i poop on ur dog

    Go to a mirror. Look. Look closer. Over there, to your right. That little speck off to the side. No, look up a little. Yes, that's it. That's me. That's me with the copy of Demon's Souls you could have won if you hadn't listened to that little demon on your shoulder...

    Warning: Do NOT listen to the Greenies of Bolateria! Despite what they say, equipping your armour with solar panels WILL NOT imbue you with "Soular Power".

    Help! I'm trapped in an alternate dimension overrun by demons!

    "Treasure on your right."

    The person falls into a pit.

    Person quits game.

    to the ten year old who thinks he has a chance, you dont..


    Instead of Fighting/
    Why not peacefully relax?/
    Much cheaper these days./

    The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist. Although, he does exist, and he's up ahead. Good luck with that.
