Though I am more concerned with keyboard controls and mouse acceleration and such...those are what separates the good ports from the bad ones. Not graphics. If they changed their mind on the graphics they could change their mind on anything with PC version and cut even more corners.

I believe so..at least that was brought up in another thread about DS., which would make this trend even more frustrating if it did end up looking like the console versions or at least no where near the prerelease footage.

Have to ask yourself though why would steam remove those images? There could be many reasons but the game not looking like that anymore for pc is among those reasons.

You don't care about graphics at all. Well good for you. If you don't care then why bother even coming to an thread where graphics are discussed. I like old PS1 games to but that does not mean I don't like pretty graphics as well as it helps with immersion and generally makes a game more enjoyable.

I found Dark souls 1 to be very enjoyable. You know what would have made in even better? Higher fidelity graphics and that's one of the things From software promised to deliver to PC gamers with Dark souls 2.

If they down grade the entire games graphics because it would not run "maxed" on an 5670 then they are doing it wrong and clearly not delivering on the promise to make a proper PC version.

I'm not all about graphics (I like plenty of ugly games) but if they show some decent looking stuff in the alpha and then rip it out of not only the console version but also the PC's where people would have the hardware to run said graphics then yest I'm going to be pissed.

I agree with you, but we are talking about console version atm. I will be very disappointed if they don't implement what we saw in demo versions on PC. There is no excuse that an average PC can't run it well. There are sliders to adjust settings you know. But even if the game is as ugly (and some levels are extremely ugly and pale) I will still play it cause there is no other game like Dark Souls 2. Just it won't be a masterpiece it could have been.

Dark soul only needs 120 fps.

My point is that i cant stand that circlejerk. Dark soul is probably one of the best gameplay-wise game the last years and from software doesnt deserve all these. Ps3 and xbox got lower IQ because the devs decide it.If they said that the pc version will be better just wait for this

Now if it was ubisoft or dice/ea yeah lets burn them now

How are these games? Is it linear game or open world?

Is it incredibly hard in all settings or can I tone it down and just play for the story without worry?

It is pretty linear...and the game isn't really inherently hard. You just die if you are hit a couple times, but you'll have to wack the bad guys a bunch before they go down. It's kind of like one boss fight after another and another and another. Dark Souls 1 got pretty old for me fast. Though each type of bad guy you fight requires a different tactic to beat them. The first time you encounter something you will probably die a few times. So I guess it is hard in terms of a learning curve.

It's not linear. It's an opened world, but you have one objective. There are many paths you can go and there are more then one way to reach a certain area, but there is one that you should really take, where enemies aren't above your level. But what I like the most about DS is the fight. It's so mathematically precise that you can always tell why you died and it is your lack of skill combined with unupgraded gear most of the time. There is some unfairness, but it can be learned and overlooked.

No, no, no, no... It's a 3d Metroidvania game that is super long. It's not an open world game like Skyrim, and it's not linear like Gears of War. Think more like Mega Man. You have a boss at the end of each stage and you can choose which stage you want to go to. But the easiest way is to do the whole thing in a certain order, but you don't have to.

The games difficulty is actually over blown simply because we live in this mimzy world of hand holding and tutorials of which Dark Souls has none save for a few messages scrawled on the ground. The game is unforgiving that's for certain. One mistake and your dead, but it is fair if you're paying attention and learning. The design of the whole affair is very 25 years ago in how it's implemented. Don't have the key for that door behind which the rest of the game lies? Tough go find it, and probably have to fight some sort of horribly large guy in armor or monster that belches (acid/blood/poison/lava/bile/even more lava/ice/fire/darkness stuff/and/or magic bolts)

Pick it up, they really are good games, even if there were graphical problems in one part of the first PC port.

Well, I said pretty linear, but those bolded words are a better way to say it. tongue.gif Though I was thinking more in terms of the individual areas. You come in the entrance and go out the exit. It is an interesting game that I don't regret buying...the combat just got old after a while. I am quite sure I will never play it again. It almost got to the point where it felt like it was action events...like waiting for the screen to pop up and say "press left mouse button now", but instead of words you just had to know by the animations of what you were fighting. A missed dodge and it would be game over just like if you missed pressing the left mouse button to stay on the dragon in The Witcher 2.

Yes. One other thing... I always hated games for showing you the spot where you need to go on compass you usually see in a corner of your screen. The whole Skyrim experience for me was to skip every dialog and just follow the dot to the objective (GPS in medieval times?). I use to think that the games are made for idiots. Every game did that an it became sickening for me. In DS you have no map, no compass, you have to read keys' descriptions to know what they open an to learn where you are supposed to go. I always dreamed of such a game. Hope more devs will start not to underestimate our intelligence.
