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.

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (3 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: For Mario you have time until September. :-) (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (3 Hours ago)
