Dark Souls II PC gameplay

Dark Souls II PC gameplay

The quite numerous fans of Dark Souls on PC all know who Durante is, since he's the one who produced the now famous patch that made a very poor port into a very acceptable game. He's been able to play Dark Souls II a few weeks ago and made sure it was a good port this time (it is, for the most part), and captured this video that we now host with his blessing.

Runs like crap on PS3 for me, so i think the PC version is probably the best version. Assuming you have an ok PC.

I mean, at times it takes the game several seconds just to open the menu, and the framerate is inconsistent as all f**k. Then again, i think the entire game is a big downgrade from Dark Souls. Quite disappointing in comparison, tbh.

Interesting...its already been proven that both Xbox360 and PS3 run at a locked 30fps and have much smoother improvements as notable by the usual console improvements.

Demons Souls and neither Dark Souls series were never triple A budget type games like Uncharted series or Battlefield...so that "runs like crap on PS3 console" must be in your mind...aka mental conditioning being a PC elitist.

Also the PC version was designed on whats essentially a 2005 technology GPU and even there it does not take full advantage of it...current PC GPUs are...well GPUs since the year 2007 have doubled and tripled the overall RAW GPU power of those old consoles so all you are playing is overkill.

Be thankful for game consoles otherwise you would be stuck playing Quake III engine games. ;)

^ nah, ps3 version runs a lot worse than 360 one, not only that, but the disc ps3 version came with even more issues, compared to digital release.

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
