I just got cursed in Dark Souls: PTD....
:(


Down in the sewers I got cursed 4 times in a row once. (Got kinda sloppy with my gameplay.) Let me tell you, that SUCKS! And previously I thought the worst thing in the game up to that point was losing all my souls at the end of a level. Nope, curse sucks more.

P.S. Is Space Channel 5 suffering from the same treatment?

I can report that it's between Sonic Adventure DX and Jet Set Radio, in terms of quality. Like Sonic Adventure DX, Space Channel 5 Part 2 only has keyboard prompts (My 360 gamepad seems to be mapped intuitively, however.) and selecting Full Screen in the Config tool results in a window. (Changing the FULL_SCREEN setting in the "config.ini" file makes no difference.) However, like Jet Set Radio, Widescreen is supported.

Overall, if it's the only way one can play Space Channel 5 Part 2, then it could be worse.

Yep, sounds VERY familiar. Can't believe I'm actually looking forward to starting this all over again on PC. After going through Blighttown on PS3, I said to myself "Never again am I going down hear!".

Whee! Despite my recent purchases, what I am I play atm? NFS: Underground 2. With widescreen fixes (running at 1920x1200), a new (2011) texture pack, and ENB, *sweet*. It's a lovely step up from the NFS:U2 I played the Fuck outta on PS2.

I think if you take the master key you actually CAN skip blight town.

Lurker here.

You can skip Upper Blighttown without the Masterkey.

Just go through Darkroot Basin --> Valley of Drakes --> into the back side of Blighttown

Also, played Dark Souls for 100's of hours on PS3...just started the PC version.

My steam id is "crzytimes"...I'm SL 25 on my first character now...stuck at the Capra Demon...forgot how bad he sucks on a fresh account.

You only skip about 2/3 of Blighttown - the horrible, platforming part. But you don't get to skip the swamp. Master key lets you open the gate in the New Londo Ruins that goes to the Valley of the Drakes and then to to top of the other side of Blighttown

I unfortunately never played the NFS:UG games.
I wish EA would re-release NFS: Underground 1 + 2 onto Origin and other digital stores.

The oldest I've seen on digital download is ProStreet (the one after Carbon). I *finally* picked up ProStreet on Origin for $4 a few months back. Hilariously the widescreen mod requires the cracked version of the 1.2 patch of NFS:U2. You can pickup the older PC releases for cheap on fleabay. It's been a very long time since I played Underground 1, but I feel that Underground 2 is far superior. The vibe (and mods available) seem to agree with that. NFS:U1 wasn't bad, it's just that NFS:U2 defined the open-world racer. The only gripe with NFS:U2 is that you really have to drive across the map to start an event (whereas, NFS:MW, Burnout:Paradise, and more recent titles allow you to drive or menu to an event). Okay okay, the minor side-bit times on certain streets in Burnout Paradise did require you to drive to the start (yes, I did play Burnout Paradise to death).

Thanks for the insight on NFS: Underground series.

The first PC version of a NFS game that I bought actually was NFS: Most Wanted (2005) - and I loved the hell out of that game. I also loved Carbon, I should note.

I have ProStreet, but never installed it, for some reason.

BTW - I thought Burnout Paradise was awesome and an absolute blast to play. :D

Wow that looks gorgeous, you have the original copy for PC? Definitely one of my most played games on NGC.

I think with how many developers have been giving out Steam keys once they hit Steam it must be a policy on Valve's end.

I'm playing from the DVD version of the PC release of NFS:U2. I understand there is/was a 2-CD release.

Version 1.2 patch

Version 1.2 c/k'd (required for the widescreen mod)
http://gamecopyworld...rground_2.shtml

Widescreen & FOV Mods
http://www.wsgf.org/...d-underground-2

Texture Mod and ENB
http://www.nfscars.n...ead.php?t=32188


Note that some versions sold on Amazon are the UK release that swap out the Honda Civic (meh) and Acura RSX (I liked this car IRL) for a Vauxhall (Opel) Corsa and Pugeot 106.

And set your speed2.exe to run in compatability as XP SP2, and run as Admin. Also to use the texture mod you have to run the texmod.exe every time and use it to launch the game. The ENB files should be copied to the game folder.

There are also NFS:MW(2005) texture and ENB mods on the same site. I have note tried them yet.

Make sure you increase the DoF resolution in the resfix patch, at least once. It makes a huge difference to the appearance of the game world (for the better!). Just increasing the resolution makes a smaller impact.
