Hmmm, thinking about picking up Dark Souls, but I already have it for PS3. (About 1/3 - 1/2 through first playthrough.) Worth it? Someone convince me...

Personally I've never understood the need to 'double dip' (as they say). Only reason I'd say you'd have to get it is if they don't offer/sell the added 'Prepare to Die' content on PS3.

Main concern is controls. I know it's a native console game but if you're going to port something then having good M+K functionality is part and parcel with that.


This game does play great w/ a controller - namely, the X360 Controller.
I do understand what you're saying - as games on PC should work decently w/ a KB+mouse. I do agree w/ this.
Though, in the case a PC port isn't translated well - you really should have a gamepad. Especially since a lot more games are getting console-to-PC ports, you'll need it. PC is a multi-purpose device - and it should support both.
Also, there's some games - like platform-heavy games (think Tomb Raider series and Assassin's Creed series); brawlers (Street Fighter series, MK series); many sports games (NBA2K series; FIFA series) - they just play better w/ a gamepad.
And if you do already own a X360 already and you have a USB-based X360 controller - then there's really no excuse for not plugging into your PC's USB port.

Personally I've never understood the need to 'double dip' (as they say). Only reason I'd say you'd have to get it is if they don't offer/sell the added 'Prepare to Die' content on PS3.

Though, w/ DSFix Mod for Dark Souls PTD (PC) - you can bump high-resolutions and more graphical features.
Also, you can bump up other graphical bells & whistles on your video card's software (NVidia Panel or ATI Panel), as well - granted you have a PC that can handle the game you're throwing at it.

Yeah, I'm not normally interested in doubling up, but my PS3 version is vanilla. And I've been slowly transitioning from console back to PC, though the PC benefits of this title seem marginal.

It's more of an issue of me being and older dude who last used a controller with a PS1 (and even then sparingly). So it has more to do with muscle memory and being able to comfortably use it rather than a philosophical difference. Basic platformers that just make use of the D-pad and a few buttons I can handle. Re: those other games mentioned, I don't really play stuff like that. Dark Souls is appealing because it's a rare example of a seriously difficulty ARPG released within the last decade or so.


And if you do already own a X360 already...



As a card carrying member of the PC master race I would never sully myself by owning one of those abominations! :lol:

Spoiler
But, any StarForce Disc-Based DRM is awful - stay AWAY from it!
That used to install OS-specific drivers (so if they don't updated drivers or remove DRM-check in a patch, it might NOT run on future OS's just b/c of that);
actually spun the hell faster and slower out of your disc-drive and tried to measure if disc was the "right size";
could cause disc-drive to be spun into non-existence;
could cause your disc to be shattered to pieces;
could force your OS to reboot if it couldn't pass the disc DRM check (even if your disc was in the drive!);
could cause some issues w/ security on Windows systems;
and all kinds of other insanity.


Weird, I heard they tried to do the same thing for digital download, spin your HDD platters to see if it was the correct mass. You see information is entropy in a higher energy state. Energy has mass. By knowing exactly the mass of your HDD platter before and after you installed the game the can determine the if it has the correct mass differential. Same caveats, may shatter your platter. Also, this doesn't work on SSDs. ^_~

Proper members of the PC Master Race are legally required to have gamepads. The official reason is to show the console peasants how inferior they are, "I'm not just PWNing you because of my KB/M; I PWN you with gamepad too." I hear some members of the PC Master Race will also use their gamepads for other uses, like racing games and platformers.

Trying to figure out - are you joking w/ me or are you serious? Or a mixture of both?

The stuff I said about StarForce disc-DRM was meant to be a serious. That disc-based DRM is no joke.
Those are many of the reason people complained about it over the years and were throwing lawsuits Ubi's way; and hence why Ubi and many others dropped it.

Oh, yes - I forgot, I also use a gamepad for racers, too.
Add that to my list, some few posts back.

Yes, you can play online!
The mod doesn't change the game's code, if you keep the framerate locked set at 30 FPS.

If you DO unlock it (to say 60 FPS), you risk a chance of getting a G4WL/XBL ban - b/c it does alter the game's code.
It tells you all of this in DSFix's INI file, BTW.

Tony, I see you have 6 out of the 14 available DLC for Crusader Kings II in this pack, is there any possiblity that you might be offering a specific nothing but Crusader Kings II DLC pack during this sale or the upcoming holiday sale? I had been hoping to get something like that from Amazon instead of resorting to buying it piecemeal from places like GMG.

The DLC that you currently offer but that isn't in this Pint Sized Paradox Package:

you can play the game offline all you want, though online play is to get 'connected' with others. though for online bans uh... honestly there's thousands of people who've downloaded and used 60FPS. there... does not seem to be a problem with that. there's always a case of "my friend..." that gets seen or one person out of a large mob who gets hit while everyone else seems to be fine.
