Got it. Now, with gfwl shutting down does that mean I won't be able to use the mp aspect of it? The single player portion will be left alone?

hmm never really thought about that, i'll go do some digging around and see whats what.

*edit*

slight digging complete: it seems that since you must be signed in to gfwl to save your game that once the service is offline the game is essentially unplayable.

however, some companies have begun patching the gfwl service out of the games so that they remain playable past that point.

working on gaining sources for this info.

As far as I know, there's been no official word on the removal of GFWL. You can play with an offline profile, so you'll be able to play DS in single-player even when GFWL is down. Considering the sad port Dark Souls got, I wouldn't be surprised even if FROM ignores the issue.

That being said, it's an excellent game. Just install DSFix so you can play it in HD with ambient occlusion and maybe DSMFix to use M+KB. An HD texture pack is recommended, too.

F*** those skeleton dogs, man. I hated the part where there were 3 immediately in a row. Eventually I could get it so I could kill each one without aggroing the others, but the first time past them they wrecked my s***.

Best game I've played all year. It's my top Steam played with near 300 hours.

the benefit of playing as the sorcerer was i could just range most of those bastards, and when i couldn't i just hid behind a shield and poked things with a spear.

build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day, but set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
