[DS] Dark Souls 2 – Official PC Release Date Announced - Page 8

post #71 of 320
Why the souls series is awesome: (not using actual items or bosses, so no spoilers lol)

Day 1: They gave me a dull stick and a cloth shirt to fight armored enemies with swords. I don't know what's wrong with the devs, this game is impossible.

Day 2: Stick sharper then I originally thought. Able to cause minor injury to enemies and make slow progress.

Day 3: Found shield and board with nail in it. Now these enemies will fear me. Time to go for the boss.

Day 4: Boss was size of average skyscraper. Attempted to poke him with stick, and he played golf with my entire body using a hammer 10x larger then I am. This game sucks, it's impossible.

Day 5: I KILLED GODZILLA JUST USING A BOARD WITH A RUSTY NAIL. I will now laugh at the military throughout the entire upcoming "Godzilla" movie.

Day 6: A dragon came out of nowhere and killed me in one hit with a massive fireball. This game sucks, it's impossible.

(Flash forward a month or two)

GIVE ME A STICK AND I CAN CONQUER WORLDS.

I know they've confirmed higher res textures and a framerate cap higher than 30,

But have they said anything about the actual rendering resolution of the game itself ?

Man I love that song biggrin.gif I just hope the PC version turns out well. Some of the pre alpha footage was pretty decent looking so I'm optimistic.

Not specifically, but they did say this:
Quote:
“We did know there were PC-specific features like key-mapping and use of the mouse and keyboard, high resolution and higher frame rate, stuff like that, but… It’s not that we ignored it, but it would have taken too much time for us to implement it, test it and get it up to the level people expected. It was more of a publisher (Namco Bandai) decision to say, ‘Guys, don’t worry about this – let’s just get it out and see how this works on PC.’

“I think the game experience was fairly similar. We did recommend using a controller, and if [one] used a controller the experience was a Dark Souls experience I think. But we did learn from it. For Dark Souls II we are developing on PC from the beginning. We realise what PC games typically require, and I can assure you that the PC version of Dark Souls II will be a good PC experience for PC gamers.”

http://www.edge-online.com/features/dark-souls-producer-says-pc-version-was-rushed-problems-were-expected/

Another good bit from that article:
Quote:
Asked whether From Software and Namco ever considered a Wii U port, Miyazoe bluntly replies: “No.” When asked why, he explodes with laughter.
