Praising the sun will have to wait a little longer sadly
quite the wait for a few extra pixels. 250hrs in already
And FPS ^
And mods which will $#!T on the console version. And not just graphically, but adding loads of fun stuff to the game just like Dark Souls 1 mods. I have platinum trophy already, but I already bought the PC version months ago for 20% off because i'm just that dedicated to this series. Don't hate on PC games because you aren't able to play them.
"And mods which will $#!T on the console version. " With ppl like you spreading comments like that, you are sure to bring ppl in /s
^You mean as opposed to people spreading comments like "quite the wait for a few extra pixels"? BiggCMan tackled it like a douche, but there are certain benefits to PC gaming over console gaming, mods being one of them. There are advantages to console gaming too, so everyone just stop getting butt-hurt over nothing.
Yeah, tastelessly downplaying the competition is not how you promote yourself. Talk about the positives of the PC version without attacking consoles.
Better resolution, much faster and smoother framerates, much better anti-aliasing, better texture filtering, plus whatever other graphical elements are superior on the PC version all add up to a significantly better-looking and performing version of the game. Not to mention the mods, which alone will elevate the game far past the console versions. Anyway, all of that is true, but that's not to say that the console versions aren't enjoyable games in their own right.
If you call 2.25X more pixels "a few extra", not to mention a much smoother framerate which is paramount to responsive gameplay (which can only improve a skill-based game like DS2). I expect you won't be buying next gen consoles either then, clearly those few extra pixels and improved performance aren't worth it to you, not to mention greater texture resolution. And who knows, maybe they've decided to plug in that old lighting engine that was peculiarly absent from your "advance" copy...
PC gamers have a lot more games to play. Also, an older audience tends to have more patience.
thats exactly how youre behaving older.lol. did I really say anything negative about the pc? all I said was that 2 months is a lot of wait for the scale of upgrade the pc version is getting for what is essentially the same game, in my friggin OPINION. but god help me for having that. and as far as patience goes, you telling me that pc gamers who plan on buying this will be willing to wait for this even after this comes out till they finish the awesome 'lot' of games you mentioned in your post.its not patience so much as reluctance. i wasnt flaming anyone in my post. dont try n make it look like that
@vishmarx wow! chill man, he didn't say anything negative about consoles either and you already angry on him just because he said something good about PC gamers.
@LordSane yeah lets pretend "older audience" " lot more games to play" are clearly not jabs at console gamers
Wow, you're basically doing the exact same thing you're accusing him of doing (which he didn't). You were clearly just chomping at the bit, waiting for any reply at all that you could go off on a wild anti-PC tangent over, but I think you've blown your wad a little too early. It's quite clear from any discussion that I've seen you in that civility is beyond you, and all you're really worried about is doggedly hassling PC gamers.
its sad to see people have to pick special wording to have even the poorest of arguments. "few extra pixels" like they just added a few here and there in the game randomly, unnoticeable. 1080p native, double the framerate, much higher texture resolution, anti-aliasing, mods. Its worth it considering how long people will be playing the game to have a superior version. But whatever makes you feel better about your console and purchase
And it's not just double the framerate. Most of us have PCs that will run this at a SOLID 60fps, whereas the console versions have frequent drops well below 30fps.
Except: Bandai Namco has confirmed to MCV that the physical release of Dark Souls 2 has been pushed back to May 2, but the digital version remains on track for April 25. "This is only affecting the UK on the boxed release of the game," Namco told the site. "It will be delayed unfortunately and we apologise to UK customers. This is due to a manufacturing issue with packaging. To confirm this will only affect the UK boxed launch."
Is the physical confirmed to be a limited release? Why is that version getting pushed back but not the digital? Seems kind of random.
720p is 0.900m pixels 1440p is 3.600 25 fps vs 60 fps the difference is 23 million pixel per second vs 221 million pixels per second. Almost 10 times more shown on the screen isn't "few" and for a game you plat hundred of hours well it's well worth it.
I'd rather play Ds2 on consoles anyday than the ghost town in pc. Fact is the most skilled pvp players are on pc. Not to mention, but without VAC on the PC version hackers will turn that game to shit just like they did with ds1.
"Bandai Namco have confirmed this delay is just for UK physical copies. Customers outside the UK or who are picking up digital copies will remain unaffected." Yes. Those UK physical copies are super important for those extra pixels.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! PC Gamers boned again.
Meh, it's only one more week. I've had so much to play between Infamous, Titanfall, Bravely Default and everything I picked up last week during the PSN sale that I've been more than entertained and will be right up to then too (I never knew Dragons Dogma was so fantastic). Now is the time to hack into that back-log.
Hoping for Ultra High Res Textures.
Only the mods will sort that.
ffs I suppose it is only one week. But I have not looked at any video's or news about this game since it was announced as I knew I would be uncontrollably pumped for it. Do you realise how hard it is to not watch all these live streams or gameplay vids on youtube? But it is only 1 extra week so it won't be so bad will it?
You're not missing much to be honest
Easily the worst game in the series. It's still a good game but I would have called it "light" souls.
I'll take a better community and gameplay experience over better graphics with rampant hackers any day. Having to put up with immortal invaders over and over on the first Dark Souls on Pc really put me off buying the new game for my computer. As tempting as it may seem to buy this game for my gaming rig I'll wait to see if the hacker situation got fixed this time around.
Better community? Maybe it is just me but I seem to find more people in DkS1 on PC not PS3. You must have bad luck or misconcieve skilled players because I have never had an issue with hackers
Didn't happen to you =/= it never happened. -_- Lol at you saying "more" means better.
Dark Souls is an old game that is why there's not that many people playing on consoles anymore, and the community for the series originated with Demon's Souls, which was a ps3 exclusive hence why the bulk of the fans of the series are mostly console players. Mostare playing DS2 right now so the first one will be pretty deserted. As for confusing skilled players for hackers.... You are completely right. Hackers have not been a known issue with the pc version of this game. In fact check out the extremely skilled players in this video and how they are so amazing that manage never to get hurt even when they get hit with spells point blank. http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
Lol disagree all you want, boy. What an obnoxious personality to have. http://25.media.tumblr.com/...
1. PC gas more hackers. Fact. 2. PS3 has the biggest fanbase. Fact. But if From is able to do something about the hackers the game is going to be better on PC in every aspect. PS3 will have way more people playing after an year or two though... But the PC version will still be the best version.
NO Ffffnnn NO. NO. NO. NO. NOOo! NOoooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOoooo oooOOOOOOooooOOOOOOOooooo!!!!!! !!
I find this surprising mainly because from what I hear the preview build is pretty well optimised and I do recall hearing any complaints.
They better be working on some 4k textures since this takes so much time...
It could even be as simple as a shipping or manufacturing issue. We won't know unless they talk more about it.
They knew they couldn't compete with NES Remix 2, so they pushed it back, lol.
From Bandai "This is only affecting the UK on the boxed release of the game. It will be delayed unfortunately and we apologise to UK customers. This is due to a manufacturing issue with packaging. To confirm this will only affect the UK boxed launch". So yeah not delayed unless you get UK physical copy.
shhh, don't make N4G cry
i hope that is true, if digital for US is still on time , then its good
It is 100% true, that is a direct quote from bandai
Only for the UK.
