Where are you getting it that cheap?

I want to buy it simply to have the trilogy on PC, that price is ideal!

Absolutely worth it, but highly recommend the dsfix and the real issues people have encountered is falling through the map while climbing down ladders.

Yes. There is a graphics fix for the game. Once you get that working it is still super enjoyable.

Use the dsfix and it will work just fine. I played with m+k and had no problem.

That isn't the only issue with running at 60 FPS. I found that I was completely unable to perform most jump related functions including jump attacks because the character finishes the actual attack sequence long before the jump itself ends, which is usually when you make contact with the enemy. The same attacks work fine at the default 30 FPS. Also you tend to get frozen at bonfires and have to Alt+F4 the game to get out of it and reload. You don't lose anything except the time it takes to restart.

While the fluid motion of 60 FPS feels great I found myself hitting backspace as soon as I started playing to turn the cap back on so I could actually play without the hassles. Once you've played for a while you don't really notice the 30 FPS limit much anyway. You only really notice when you turn it on and off in game with DSFix. Then you see a huge difference.

I played the PS3 version up just past Blighttown. I couldn't continue after that 10fps experience. After it came out on PC, I played over 300 hours of it. Very well worth it on PC.

By the way, where can you get it for $5? I've been watching for a sale for a friend forever.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything else becomes more shallow.

Finished DS1 earlier this year and really enjoyed it. Got it for 5 bucks as well during a sale. Haha actually my third try giving the game a chance and it took till then until it clicked and ended up loving the game to finish.

Got DS2 during this sale and honestly not really enjoying myself and may give it up. Just feels to much of the same atm. DS1 definitely is superior in terms of the world itself and how it gets you more amped to explore and invest into how things will play out.

Same here. I just finished up my third run of DS1 and was highly tempted to jump right into DS2. Glad I decided to take a break instead. I've heard DS1 is mostly superior with only minor parts of DS2 being better.

The PC version is easily the best version; even without DSFix it runs better than the console versions. And with DSFix, the pleasures of high rendering resolutions and effects like AO really enhance the experience. Just don't try to run it at 60fps, as it's next to impossible to keep consistent on any PC (Seath always makes a friend's Titan XP setup choke) and it causes issues with hitboxes, jumping length, collision detection on certain ladders, etc.

DSfix and offline, yeah.

If you want a multiplayer experience though, go for SotFS or 3.

It hasn't been sold for $5 all year, which is kinda disappointing seeing that it was going for $5 quite regularly in the last few years. I think the last time it was $5 was in holidays 2016.
I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.
