I recently purchased Dark Souls: Prepare to die for the PC and I have to say its awesome. Once you install DSFix and get that setup properly it looks awesome. You do need a xbox joystick for the game to really shine, but I was lucky enough to have one laying around.

Anyone else playing Dark Souls?

Seems you might be the only one playing it?
I read in MaximumPC, Thomas McDonald, he hates it. Didn't talk about the game much, mainly hates the graphics, the having to use a console controller. Didn't say much about the game itself. I'd give you a link, but I can't find it online. It's in the December '12 mag.
Is it strictly an online game? Like Diablo3 or Warcraft? I prefer games where I don't have to play online which is why I asked. I do play D3, wish it didn't have to be online. They do updates when I'm usually able to play and I get kicked off for several hours..

It uses Games for Windows, so I guess its online, but its primarily a solo game. Other players can invade your game, and there is some coop, but you are mostly playing it solo.

The graphics do suck out of the box, but when you add a mod, it looks much better.

Thanks Grinler, I'll keep the game in mind when I'm ready to get my next one. :blink:
