I'm mostly interested in PVE to complete the main quest.
When I played the game right around the time it launched, it was pretty rare to ever find summons or get summoned. Is this still the case with the PS3 version?
The PC version was a nonstarter for me in this respect.
There is no shortage of people to summon. However, in the early areas at least, most of the people you summon will be grossly overpowered with gear they shouldn't have yet.
Also, the flickering glitch. It does more than obscure spells. Messages, summon signs, enemy drops, corpse items, bloodstains....you can't see any of that. If it isn't a texture, you can't see it most of the time. You can interact with it if you know it is there, but you can't see it.
So...this is a bad time to get back into the game really. Unless you play offline to get around the flickering bug.
