"According to a poster on the NeoGAF forum..."
^That's when I stopped reading.

I guess you don't know how NeoGAF roles.

If he knows that 99% of the posters are trolls and idiots, then he does.

Guys, really, you're just gonna believe some random guy from a forum?

Those aren't scans. It explicitly says that these are screenshots from the console version.

Some NeoGAF posters are on a whole other level.

Don't be too quick to dismiss.

Funny thing is half the info you'd get on the big popular sites are from random neogaf dudes . And a quarter of the rest comes from Random neogaf dudes' japanese translations

NeoGAF isn't really your typical forum. 99% of the news that comes from there is reliable. The way their sign-up system works pretty much prevents someone from immediately making a troll account and making a fake news topic. Tons of major websites base news stories off something first posted on NeoGAF.

long story short, neogaf is where a majority of the industry has an account, from all levels.

all the way from the lowly coder to even someone like david jaffe.

Sounds real enough, us console players better get these so called extra boss battles

Im gonna go back and finish Dark Souls, i only need to learn 1 more miracle for the platinum

It'll be DLC on the consoles, anyway, if there are any.
GamingBuddha09  +   1210d ago
I dont think Namco made any announcements yet
TopDudeMan  +   1210d ago
You're right, they haven't. It'd be all over their facebook and twitter if they had.
NYC_Gamer  +   1210d ago
I want some scans from that magazine...and hope this port offers better framerates/rez.....

i think the issue that the "reveal" is suppose to be in doesnt come out the 18th of this month

edit: ok so it is confirmed with this image i guess again i'd wait for namco to make an official announcement

Don`t think the PC community would be too happy
if the graphics are the same as the console versions.
Even though the graphics were great anyway.
I hope the framerate issues in some areas gets fixed
because that was my only complaint about dark souls.
In my opinion demons souls was a much better game though
and it never seems to get as much attention as dark souls.

thats why there are mods :D

i want the pc version only so i can get mods on it, better looking characters and more armor n such
GamingPerson  +   1210d ago
lol pc gamers will create a "impossible" of "this is madness" difficulty settings..
JoySticksFTW  +   1210d ago
Thought I was the only person to think Demon's Souls is the better game.

Man I hope there is a sequel to both games
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1210d ago
I heard that it wont support mods
not sure if this is true =s
Its not really a game that should be messed with,
it has a set tone and everythings finely balanced.

yeah there are a few of us that preferred demons
souls but i think it gets forgotten by the press
because it was a PS3 exclusive.
I thought the online worked alot better,also the
pacing and difficulty was spot on.
Not as cheap as dark souls.

i dont think dark souls difficulty was cheap, i think it was easier than demons souls because I was already experienced in Demons souls

and im not sure if its possible to not allow mods lol. Hackers hack and mod Mmo's all the time.

but anyway. I mostly want the sequel of either or. such good games :)
CarlitoBrigante  +   1210d ago
And that is the reason why I dont want a PC version.

PC users will be able to cheat their way in Dark Souls, create uber weapons and armor in 2 seconds. Thats not how Dark Souls is meant to be played, its supposed to be challenging.
NYC_Gamer  +   1210d ago

Then you're not forced to buy the PC version are you?Mods do a lot more then create armor and weapons...many of the community based mods expand the world by creating new maps/fixing technical issues and etc....PC gamers are used to challenge maybe you should check out the older rpgs on the platform....way before all the dumb down hand holding era started...

I loved Demons Souls, but I loved Dark Souls even more. Things are just much more fleshed out, and improved upon the previous version. Demons Souls was a good start for the souls games, but it had more flaws than Dark Souls. Anywhoo... I foam at the mouth, just thinking about Dark Souls running a constant 60fps, 1080p, and possibly mods.
STONEY4  +   1210d ago
As long as it's optimized well and I can run it at 1080, 60fps, I'm game. And gamepad support.

Anyone who doubts the detective skills of NeoGAF is just asking to be embarrassed.

Great game but having played the PS3 version to death (mostly my death) I probably won't bother with the PC version.
Also, dark souls is sooo good, graphical improvements won't make a big difference (at times Lordran is stunning anyway).
Akiba96  +   1210d ago
If this is true, im glad that PC gamers get to experience this amazing game... now all we need is a vita port!
grahf  +   1210d ago
Good. Way to appease everyone! I wonder if I'll have to start a new character for the new content or if it will work with NG+... Either way, take my money!

Another hopeful side effect for a PC version... could someone release a full 3d continuous map of the entire world!??!?! Please?!?!! I've explored it all, I just want to see how it all melds together!
