I'm curious how much cheating there'll be on the PC version. The 360 version is fairly easy to save-edit, but it's extremely rare to ever encounter any cheaters.

In my experience, don't expect GFWL to do anything to stop cheaters. It's the only way not to be disappointed.

We'll see how quickly people work out direct hex edits via cheatengine or whatever, I guess!

edits: yeah that actually looks fine. I guess some games just don't take to screenshots very well.

Besides added DLC, have they added any new enemies to the original areas or ramp'd up the difficulty?

Someone on the Steam forums posted some screenshots of the PC Version. Just like I thought, it looks like blurry pixelated dogshit.






That's just like on PS3, the thing is that most of us didn't play this game on PS3 couple inches away from screen. Also heard about FXAA injector(?) doing wonders to this game.

Try using SMAA injector instead. Generally better results.

It's a console port, there's likely some fxaa going on already. Also fxaa sucks.

I gather fxaa is on on the picture on the left, and off on the right. If it's the other way around, clearly I've misjudged it!

They gained some popularity when skyrim was released, you can find them everywhere now, and they tend to just need to be installed into the game's directory. Most of them come with options to play around with colour saturation and contrast and extra sharpening and poo poo, which is likely why the contrast is higher on that screenshot. I guess fxaa looks alright if the game's res is low, but I tried using fxaa when it was added to nvidia drivers and I just hate how it looks.

My favourite thing to do is actually killing that guy with the first time he appears. Pro gamerz only.

Watching a newbie play Dark Souls is fun, I've been trying to get the guy on stream to do dumb poo poo so I can laugh like maniac when he dies.

Drops from certain enemies are random, but chests are always in the same place and items in the environment are also always there each play through.

Attention Horse posted:

Enemies have a chance at dropping some loot (which is modified by an item find stat), but there aren't any sprawling loot tables or anything, and items you find in chests and around the environment are the same every time. None of the items have random stats either, but they can be upgraded in different ways.

You get certain loot from certain enemies, % is boosted by how much humanity you have in your meter and certain items.

About half of the items have a spot they can be found or bought, but the rest are random drops and need to be farmed.

well for starters the Witcher landscape shot is a little different, artistically, than the starting dungeon cell in Dark Souls. One of them is supposed to look grimy and lovely and one of them is supposed to be a glorious colorful vista.

And bouncing into a thread to post "this looks like poo poo" is not "discussing what the game looks like". It's threadshitting, pure and simple.
