So many of you may have read the articles online about FROM Software having a not so easy time porting this game to the PC.

There are going to be a few things that some people won't like. For starters, frame rate and graphics will apparently be identical, in fact the same as the consoles. Which means we'll have all the same framerate issues that the consoles versions have. On top of that, other articles reveal that the game's internal resolution is locked at 1024x720 no matter what resolution we choose and we're capped at 30fps. From a review on gamespot they mention how the controls aren't really optimized for the keyboard and you're better off playing with a controller like plugging in an Xbox controller or any other gamepad that's supported.

I had a feeling a topic like this would come up after the games release but I wanted to bring this up now and discuss this with anyone out there that's already pre-ordered the game or still debating whether or not to get it.

Honestly, I myself won't be taking too much issue. I prefer the controller for games with fancier and more precise footwork, and even with the limitations and hiccups the graphics had on 360, it's still gorgeous.

These graphical things are that much of a bother to me either. I've played it on my PS3 and it looked amazing so if it's same graphics then I'm fine with it. And as you said Devillord2009 there will hopefully be patches for this. From what I've read in the articles FROM Software was really trying to push the game out to make the dead-line that was set for them. So hopefully this gets fixed.

As for the the controls, I had wished Dark Souls would come out for the computer back when the game was first released but always questioned how well the controls would carry over. I think it's unsurprising that a controller will definitely be the best way to play.

Though I've played through on my PS3 so I'm going to mess around for a while and then cheat my butt off once some stuff gets released

OMG, I just finished downloading the steam version. Playing without the 360 controller is almost impossible and it crashes every time I want to save at the bonfire. Bad business.

yeah i do agree that the controls are derpy without a controller, and as for the bonfire crash, i think that's your version that has the problems, i've been to many bonfires and have not crashed even once
