Think Dark Souls will be on Steam?

GFWL garbage notwithstanding (I can appreciate being forced to use it more with a multiplayer game like Dark Souls, than, say exclusively single player offerings like Arkham City and New Vegas) I'm greatly anticipating the PC release, if only so I can play through the game without stuttering lag.

It's been confirmed already. Probably will still use GFWL, though.

Yeah. So it's either going to be just GFWL or Steam+GFWL.

Honestly, I don't think GFWL is bad in this case. It simplifies the porting by a lot to just use GFWL rather than redesigning the netcode from the ground up.

Oh, cool. And it's coming even sooner than I'd thought.

Think cheating'll be much of an issue? Seems like it'd be real easy for people to use something like cheatengine to give 'emselves infinite souls.

Well, assuming they've fixed those infinite-souls glitches in the game already.

Good = Darks SOuls playable on PC with extra content
Good = Available for purchase on Steam

Bad = Unaltered port(frame rate locked, can't change resolution from 720p, etc)
Bad = It uses GFWL instead of Steamworks
Bad = Limited mouse/keyboard support. 360 controllers highly encouraged.
#8Rarehunter_idolPosted 6/3/2012 1:06:53 AM
Wait, no support for certain resolutions and a locked framerate?
True?

;-; Might break it for me considering i already own it on PS3.

The whole fps lock and resolution lock is still a rumor I believe. GFWL is never really a deal breaker for me. Mouse/keybaord support will most likely be fixed by some modder, shame it comes to this though.

You should read more then. Thier dev team has talked about he xbox to pc porting tools they used and the fact they don't know how to make pc games very well. This game will work but not very well. GFWL is the biggest festering boil that has ever touched pc gaming.
