Oh right, I forgot that unlocked.

Looks alright.

Yo, just checking Lostrib, since this is GMG, you sure this code isn't exclusive to you only?

Edit: Okay, SD. I'll assume legit.

Negative.

But inb4 "best version of GTA V and RDR lololol"

Not a bad deal. I had a $30 preorder from some random site, but they canceled just days before release. Lame.

I pulled it from SlickDeals, so it's not exclusive to me

People, let it go. Do not respond to the idiot, please.

#14 Edited by AznbkdX (3114 posts) -

It all worked without a hitch for me. :P Legit deal.

Now to see if this thing runs well. Rather not do it on my laptop though so I have to wait to get home.

#15 Posted by granddogg (406 posts) -

@lostrib: got to get that now...great deal..

#16 Edited by uninspiredcup (6887 posts) -

Getting console button promps when using a mouse and keyboard. I can see they used that month wisely.

Nothing to do with curbing piracy, I'm sure.

Is Dark Souls story based? Does anything really connect the two games, or can someone just jump in to DS2 without playing the first one?

You can hop into the second one, and probably enjoy it more immediately as the performance is more stable.

But speaking as someone whose only experience of the first is on PC, the mods are fun to mess around with and I'd assume there are more of them. Since it's cheaper, go with the first.

I'm betting it's the latter. Honestly DS could be played without any regard to story whatsoever. It's just as enjoyable without it.

The lore is connected. The story... not really. But the story is meh anyway. Only the lore is interesting but you can learn about it from some videos on youtube

It's hard for me to continue playing my PC version of that game. :/

I have yet to get it working to a comfortable level. Even with DSFix and all those fixing mods it's still janky as fuck.

#22 Posted by g0ddyX (3870 posts) -

PC, PS3 and 360 gamers get to play this awesome game.
Good deal.

#23 Posted by Jankarcop (8827 posts) -

this game is so much better on PC lmao, ugh console anti-gamers

#24 Edited by AznbkdX (3114 posts) -

So is this game just as good as the first one? Difficulty wise? Boss wise?

Not that it really matters since I'll be playing it shortly haha. Just want to know some things prematurely.

#25 Edited by uninspiredcup (6887 posts) -

Love the character models.

Anyway, can't wait to play this.

I'm playing it with a shittyass Intel HD 4000 on my laptop :P

I'd take answers from anyone else over me, @lostrib

Jeez that's a bad situation haha. :P

I guess I'm used to not needing to do much to make games work well. Dark Souls is probably the worst on that front out of all the games I've played. Sure there may be worse, but I've fortunately never had to deal with them.

It's not like my computer sucks or anything, it just sucks when playing DS. :(

No bait needed. The models look like shit. It's Morrowind.

For what? Pointing out shit models are shit.

Sorry if I don't live in your magical land of wonders. It's called reality.

I'm actually wondering why anyone cares about DS 2 graphics at all. It's not like the first one was all that great in that department either without mods.

#35 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38165 posts) -

Still haven't gotten my key from "Fast2Play" but I bought it back in february for 26 Euro there so I can't complain

Plus I've finished it twice on PS3 so I can wait a little longer :)

Eh? The game was pimped as pc being the lead platform. Next gen in mind. With (now defunked) lighting and many promises about making up for the horrid Darksouls: PTDE.

Those where not lived. And some diet coke pc gamers choose to ignore that so they can act juvenile and boast to console gamers. Even though the game still quite clearly looks and plays like shit.

Standards my friends, standards. Don't talk the talk unless you can walk the walk. You embarrass real pc gamers.

Gaming dragons is a great website. I got it for £27 and it arrived today 7 hours before release.

Usually keys are send within 20 minutes. This £39.99 bullshit is not on.

@lostrib: Aww man, I already bought it on PC with the last coupon code for $40.00..

Eh, I wasn't around when they were calling it the greatest thing ever. I honestly just saw it as another okay graphics DS game that plays like the original.

Then again, I'm one of those people who couldn't give a damn even if I heard about the downgrades and stuff. I play based on what platform is most comfortable (or where the cheapest version is). If riling up the other people who do care is your thing, then go at it.

G2play and Kinguin are sites I have best experience with.

Trying to charge £39.99 as well (PC games £29.99) and looks like it came from 1999.

These Japanese are taking the piss.

Ahh Dark Souls 2 taking me on a trip down memory lane. Great game, good for hermits who will enjoy the single player experience since the community will be dead on PC.

My friend, after 14000 steam sales, this is highly doubtful.

I have seen reports of people talking to GMG support about being credited the difference.

I know a similar thing happened to me on a preorder and they gave me the $2.99 difference in GMG credit

I can get easily frustrated with games at times, so not sure Dark Souls is for me

#48 Posted by blangenakker (2066 posts) -

annnnnnd its basicly the same as the console version so no one has anything to complain about.

#50 Posted by freedomfreak (38235 posts) -

Actually, the Ps3 version is the best.

The load times contain interesting information about the lore, so the PC version, which loads fast, makes you unable to properly read them.

It ruins the experience. The Ps3 has the longest load times, so it is by far the most fulfilling Dark Souls 2 experience, seeing as you can take your time reading all about it.
