Most people are retarded that's why. The only thing people will accomplish by skipping this game is missing out on not only one of the best rpg's of all time, but one of the best games of all time in general.



My friend just got his saved game destroyed by a glitch that make him crash when he log in in blight town, and my saves just got anihilated by GFWL because I changed my gamertag.


The game is awesome, but there are still some issues. Note that the later is GFWL and not the game itself.

Yeah, the game is so hyped up. Everyone's on fire.
Then the game is finally released, first thing is, resolution issue. Sure, you can download a mod to fix it. People say it took 20 minutes for some random guy to fix it. Shows everything how much dedication they put into this garbage port.
Then you enter the game, first thing you see there is it asks you to press "A" button to loot the corpse... lol.
End button opens menu. Esc key does nothing. Game breaking bugs, etc. Just to name a few.

The best game ever? Boy you have not been playing many games in your life huh. After all, this is a pure console game.
I can name at least 10 PC RPGs that are way better than this.

If you spent HALF as much time playing the actual GAME rather than being a port bashing elitist, then you would realise how good it is.

And please mate, i've played all the top rpg's and dark souls eats them up and spits them out.

Just out of curiosity then, name me those 10 rpgs that are better, i'm listening.

The game takes a tad more configuring on your part in terms of keybindings, which are in my oppinion the worst pre-configured keymapping I've seen in a long time lol. But you can change that yourself to suit to your liking, so no problems there.
The mouse has some kind of reversed mouse acceleration. WHich means that the faster your mouse is, the slower will your character move. The way I encountered this was to adjust the camera speed ingame to about 7 on the slider, and then adjust my mouse's DPi setting to the lowest setting possible ~450 DPi. You can't do a 180 degree turn in 0.01 second like everywhere else, but I chose to see that as an addition to the combat realism rolleyes.gif
The in-game tips for what button to press when encountering something, like picking up stuff etc. is in X-Box controller symbols. But before you get to the first boss you'll by then have them figured out as well.
GFWL, the demon in the shadows. It seems to be a lucky draw really. Just like splinterize had his save data deleted from DarkSouls, it deleted my progress in Batman Arkham City, never picked the game up again. And you can't play without GFWL since you won't get your progress saved. Which blows major league &%!#*...

If you are able to look past these flaws, the game itself is really a blast once you learn the basic combat and the game is very rewarding like stated in the post above.

If you have a 16:10 monitor like me, you'll see a black bar on top and one in the bottom. Download FlawlessWidescreen and you're good thumb.gif

Trust me this game is worth buying... as long as you have an xbox controller to play with. I have been struggling to pick up a game and actually want to play it, but this game is it. Lots of depth, good combat, cool bosses, tons of secrets. It is a really really good game. Currently stuck on gargoyles though. :[

What level are you? I could help you get the gargoyles (without using OP gear that would just ruin it). I just started a new character, since I beat the game and want to go through the new content without killing all the NPCs lol. I thought the giant mushroom was going to attack so I killed it, oops.

Worst port I've ever experienced. Feels like someone replaced my internals with a 360. But the game is still badass.

I beat them in under a minute on the first try.
