Gamers gate is taking pre orders for Dark Souls - prepare to die edition at $39.95. It's very nice that they aren't charging $60 for this game. Does it make up for the almost certain bad console port? Who knows. I'm still looking forward to this game though, it's just a shame that it comes out on August 24th, one day before GW2's head start.

Dark Souls is out for the pc and there are already people hard at work fixing things for the port:

If you're getting the pc version this is worth checking out. Makes you wonder if just a single dedicated fan can do this in less than 24 hours after the game is released how come the devs couldn't do it themselves in the months since they announced the pc version?

Whatever the case mods are what make pc gaming great and I can't wait to play this game in the next week or two after I get my GW2 fix out of the way.

When I had my 360 I enjoyed the game, almost bought it for PS3 but then heard about the PC version. All the subsequent stories of the bad port killed it for me though. Hopefully, like you say trag3dy, the modders can really make the game what it should be on PC. I just might get it.

Did you get the game already?

No not yet. I've held off purchasing it because GW2 releases tomorrow so I wouldn't have the time to dedicate to the game. I'll probably pick it up in a few weeks and hopefully that guy refines his mod even more and works out the kinks with it by then.

Yes it is a quick/bad port but it works.
I am glad they actually listened to fans and released it for PC (with new content). Right from the start From Software have said they don't have much experience with PC development and are struggling. So it was expected that the port wasn't going to be great. I am just hoping a lot of people still buy the game because you have to give them credit for having a go and listening to fans. A lot of publishers don't do that.

Also if people buy the game, it might make them invest more in PC development for future games. I'd love an Armoured Core on the PC.

Glad the mod cleans up the screen a bit but the game is still perfectly playable without. I'd rather have this as it is on the PC than no Dark Souls on the PC.

Looks sooooo nice with the fix. Game runs great on my Mac Pro with an ATI Radeon 6870.

The cheats that are out for the PC version work online, as feared :(

Cheats, what are they doing? Glitches like the console version?

It is a trainer so it is things like infinite health, stamina, etc.
Kind of ruins the game and i doubt they will bother to fix them.

It's a bummer that people have to go about ruining the game by using cheats. That's sad to hear.

I am getting annoyed with people invading my game. I was in the depths and quite far in, had loads of humanity, lots of souls. Some guy came in and killed me. So i had to get back down there to retrieve it. Nearly there and i got cursed (no humanity) and died! So i lost all my original souls/humanity!

I know the game is supposed to be hard but i wish i could switch off people invading my game. I don't want to have to block the game with my firewall, just to stop it going online.

I just don't bother resurrecting and play as hollow instead. You won't get invaded if you aren't alive.

I was frustrated with invations for a while, I usually run around hollow as well.
