Modders are good at either stirring up controversy (how many nude patches for how many games are there, now?) or providing valuable/awesome additions to our games. This is a strong case of the latter. Modder M0tah recently released the Dark Souls Connectivity Fix for the Windows PC version of the game. The little bundle of code makes connecting to friends take priority over random players, meaning you can bring your pals in for battle without delay. Some other network connection fixes were also implemented, but apart from that, the mod doesn't touch the rest of the game. Simple, but useful!
The PlayStation Network is having a month-long sale on select Namco Bandai games for the PS3, Vita, and PSP. You can pick up Ridge Racer 7: 3D License Version, Namco Museum Essentials, Touch My Katamari, and much more for 50% off the regular price. While most of the titles don't feature cooperative play, there are some co-op standouts, including the excellent Dark Souls campaign add-on, "Artorias of the Abyss," as well as a number of extras for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.
Would you let someone punch you in the face for 13 bucks? Metaphorically, of course. Dark Souls is on sale. Again. This all seems strangely familiar. A few weeks ago Dark Souls was on sale for $14.99. Today the lighthearted family game is on sale at Amazon for $12.99. Okay, we all know it's not a lighthearted family game, but you can only say the game is ridiculously difficult so many times before the words "brutal," "unforgiving," "punishing" and "please make it stop" lose all meaning.
The punishing fantasy game, Dark Souls, is on sale today from Amazon. You can ruin your whole week, maybe even your whole year, for the low, low price of 15 bucks. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are both available. I should note that this is the bare-bones version of the game. It doesn't include the recently released (at least for consoles) Artorias of the Abyss DLC. You'll want to pick that up if you want the whole soul crushing experience. Still, the core game is a hell of a ride.
More Dark Souls. That's really all you need to know. The viciously difficult action/RPG arrived on consoles over a year ago. The game's popularity led to a PC port dubbed the "Prepare to Die" edition, which released in August. This version featured extra content not available in the original game. A whole new area was added to the world of Dark Souls, including new enemies, armor, weapons, spells, and bosses. We knew this extra content would make its way to consoles eventually, and it finally arrived last week.
If you're a glutton for punishment and want to sink hours upon hours into an Action / RPG for the PC that many folks swear by - we've got a deal today for you. Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition is just $19.90 right now on Amazon which gets you a download code to redeem on Steam.
Like everything else in the Dark Souls universe, accessing the new "Artorias of the Abyss" DLC isn't easy. The new content adds a whole new area, complete with new enemies, NPCs, weapons, and armor. When I spoke with a Namco Bandai rep at E3, I asked how players would gain entry into the new area, Oolacile. He was kind enough to oblige.
The extra content from the PC version of Dark Souls has made its way to consoles. The "Artorias of the Abyss" add-on will include all the new content that was added to the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition PC port. This will add new areas, NPCs, gear, weapons, enemies, bosses and most importantly, new ways to die. It should make up five to ten hours of gameplay, depending upon your skill level, or how slowly you creep through new areas.
The extra content included in the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die PC edition has been dated for console release. The Artorias of the Abyss expansion will be available as downloadable content on October 23rd for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. Finally!
If you purchased the new PC release of Dark Souls, the Prepare to Die Edition of the game, you may have not been prepared for just how ugly the game looks. PC owners are a proud bunch and we like our games to run silky smooth and look great while doing it. Instead gamers were greeted with a blocky, pixelated mess when they attempted to play the game at its locked 1024x768 resolution.
They asked for it. Now they have it. The Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition is now available on PC. The dark fantasy game known for its punishing difficulty is now available to the mouse and keyboard crew. The Prepare to Die edition will also feature around 10 hours of extra content which will cover the "Artorias of the Abyss" story line. Console fans may be tempted to double dip on their purchases. For those poor souls whose PC can't handle the load, never fear. The extra content will be coming to consoles in the form of DLC later this year.
A new Dark Souls trailer has invaded our world. A PC version of the dark fantasy game is coming out next Friday. The Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition will include new content in addition to the core game that is already available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
At E3, our own Andrew "cubninja" Gaskill had a chance to share some information about the upcoming PC version of Dark Souls (the "Prepare to Die" edition). The PC edition will launch with new areas, enemies, bosses, NPCs, and equipment as well as a new online matchmaking system. The real question is, however, is your gaming PC up to the challenge?
There were some awesome displays at E3. Borderlands 2, Aliens Colonial Marines, Skylanders Giants, and the Big Three come to mind. Despite all the eye candy, on Day One my attention was focused on the simple Dark Souls banner at the Namco Bandai booth. Two monitors played looped footage of one of the game's new bosses. (Hint: Aim for the tail.) I was devastated to realize content from the upcoming "Prepare to Die" edition wasn't playable. I made the best of the situation, and picked the brain of of one of the gentlemen displaying the game.
In "I told ya so" news, the Artorias of the Abyss areas debuting in the upcoming PC version of Dark Souls will be available to console gamers as downloadable content. The Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition is coming to PC in all of its punishing glory on August 24th, while the DLC will hit consoles later this winter.
