Dark Souls is a terrible port, you essentially need mods to make it acceptable. For the others it depends on how much you like them.


And yet it still manages to be better than the console versions even without mods


I wouldn't go that far. The console community is still larger.

However, it isn't a terrible port. It's just a direct port. It's mediocre. Terrible would be what it is now + terrible optimization, crashing, etc.

It's actually not, it fixed all of the slowdowns. So, at a minimum, it's a BETTER port than the original because places like Blight Town are no longer slideshows.

I don't see how anyone could call it terrible though when it does NOTHING worse than the original. How is the exact same thing=terrible lol? Terrible is something that's worse than the console version....

Will my Amazon account get banned if I buy from outside the US? Just slightly worried...


No. But if you're worried, you can just make a new account to do it.

semantics really.

to me if its not significantly better its terrible, but by the dictionary definition of terrible its not.

Yes, but wrong semantics on your part. There's really no world where a BETTER PRODUCT can be terrible compared to a worse version of it, unless the original version was also terrible.

"Wow, this game is great"
"Wow, this better version is terrible"

nonsense, a PC game should be held to higher standards than console games.

Weird, wonder if it's something with Amazons system. The direct link errors out and directs you to the homepage, and this doesn't work?

But if it doesn't just go to the digital games section, there's a banner for Last Days of Summer or something right on the top and it's that


Are you feeling ok? Maybe I'm missing something but it SEEMS you are actually trying to help people out in telling them off good deals. Perhaps I will keep you unblocked now...time will tell. Either way have a good day and I hope this keeps up.
