PC Players Prepare to Rebuy Rather Than Die In Dark Souls Remastered

In recent years PC gaming enjoys more recognition from Japanese developers. Just a decade ago, in the PS2 era, it

Bought the game on PC, but couldn't be bothered putting in the work, myself, to get the thing running to a proper standard.
Grabbing the remaster on G2A, or on Steam sale, for $10 or so. Whichever offers this first.
Already paid for the game once, not doing it again to get the experience it should have been the first time.

If you release on PC, at least offer 1080p/60fps out of the gate.

I started it like 2 days ago on pc and all you have to do is download dsfix, extract it in the game's root folder and that's it. Not sure what else you were trying to do lol

MadeForGaming2341d ago

the problem is that you've had to download dsfix to begin with. What if this modder wouldn't have made the fix. Namco can't rely on the community to fix their broken games

MadLad2341d ago

It's as Made said ... it shouldn't be my responsibility to fix your game to the state of being a bog-standard port for PC.

Is it easy to do? Sure.
I mess with mods all the time.

It's a point of at least providing the minimal necessary to justify the port. If you are a PC game released since, and I'll even give you 2005, thought that's pushing it even, then you should at least offer 1080p/60fps as an option, with at least passable mouse and keyboard support. Give that, and the majority will probably be happy. Don't? I feel you're just proving that you are lazy, and don't much care at all for the platform you are releasing your title on. Gamers, in turn, then should not care about the product.
As for the remaster, well, the release price could net you both sequels, with a little left over. Therefor, even that is going to be a purchase on large discount, being that this is the version of the game we should have received from the get-go.

iNcRiMiNaTi2341d ago

Yeah I get that the community shouldn't be fixing their issues but you made it seem like it was such a hard thing to do by saying "couldn't be bothered putting in the work" when it's one small file to extract into the folder.

Not paying full price for a remaster game

agent45322341d ago

I already own the game, why should I pay for the same game twice.

Vegamyster2341d ago

I was just pointing out it's not full price.

My first thought was the safe rooms in the resident evil series. When you hear that enchanting music you know you’re safe.

Killer2020UK319d ago

I literally just came here to post this. That music in the Resi 1 safe rooms is playing in my head.

Rimeskeem318d ago

I was thinking TLOU work benches. Although I remember one time where it was a false security.

closed_account318d ago

Perfect. 👌👌

I'd add the top of my highrise apartment in GTA Online. That calm, quiet peace, just knowing as soon as I step out that door I will be bombarded by 8 and 12 year olds calling each other n**** and f****, trolled by combat jets and rocket launchers.

The entire map of SotC is peaceful as hell. Used to just ride around exploring it.

mastershredder318d ago (Edited 318d ago )

Afterlife in Cyberpunk 2077 is a peaceful area? Erm, hands down and very hard to miss, Misty Olszewski's Esoterica is the absolute epitome of peaceful areas in that game.

raiden_188318d ago

The "last of us" deer location i found to be a welcoming respite. It was nice to not have someone trying to eat me.

RPGer318d ago

Kingdom Hearts tend to present half peaceful areas and most of them are amazing.

Easiest Boss Fights in Games That Aren't Easy

GF365: "Exceptionally powerful enemies in games are almost always more difficult to defeat than ordinary enemies. But there are instances where these supposedly powerful foes turn out to be just pushovers. These are some of the easiest boss fights in games that aren't easy."

Patches is 'dim-witted'? I don't know about that. That's what he wants you to think maybe.

I don't remember TW3 bosses being easy but I played it on Death March and a crippled peasant armed with a broken twig could one hit kill you.
