Did From Software lie?

Poll: Did From Software lie? (40 votes)

Probably 75%
No 25%

Flash your mind back my friends to this.

And then we had this.

"The first Dark Souls was adapted from consoles to PC – this time, it's the opposite. The PC version serves as the base,"

But now, we have this.

"Throughout the game development process, a game is constantly being balanced not only in game playability, but also in the realm of resource management," it said.

And alas, we have this.

Unfortunately, if you were hoping for the PC version to showcase the impressive lighting we saw in pre-release video, you’ll be sad to learn that the lighting remains as flat on the PC as it did on consoles. Carrying a torch through the dim hallways of The Lost Bastille brings with it a few moody moments, but nothing on par with the way lightning pierced the bleak darkness as it did in early previews, in which we traversed Drangleic Castle in pursuit of the Looking Glass Knight. I have no doubt that modern PCs could have rendered the elaborate real-time lighting that characterized the game’s early builds without trouble, but it appears that From Software sought platform parity, which is a shame. After all, the community has already proven how beautiful these games can be with a little extra development effort.

Didn't hermits beg From to release theri game on PC in the first place? I think herms need to shut up and be grateful for their crumbs.

Ungrateful bitching like this is why From should have pissed on hermits beggars and let them wade through the hordes of broken, half ass western RPGs that they had been praising for years before they found out what a game with good game play was actually like.

No

Yes, they did.

Stop lying, most everyone here knows this d-bag

Except for the part where it didn't happen.A namco employee stated that if there was interest in the game on PC then a port was possible, even stating "Someone to make a successful petition?"

In response to that, a petition was created to show Namco/From Software that there was a significant interest in a PC version. So no, there was no begging.

What an idiotic response.

The link says everything, stop the DC and stupidity lostrib. All you can do now is shut up and wait for the next opportunity to try your BS in another post to show your ignorance and failed arguments.

Such bitterness and aggressive posting for nothing

“There is always possibilities to have games adapted on PC and the good news is that Dark Souls is not a 100% typical Console game so the adaptation is possible. Now to make things happen, let’s say the demand has to be properly done. someone to make a successful petition?”

"...hermits begged From to release their game on PC in the first place"

Yep, my original comment still holds up. Thanks for the additional link and quote but it does nothing to change those facts.

lol, From didn't ASK for the petition to be made moron. They simply said if the petition that had ALREADY been made by herms BEGGING them to make a PC version was supported by more PC BEGGERS, they would consider making the game on PC.

lol wow at trying to twist the reality to suggest that From made the petition for their own game on PC. lol please stop reaching, you've lost this and now you've gone to just making up crazy crap just to save face.

why would they do that if a sufficiently strong petition already existed?

I remember the Dark Souls PC pention because I was around when it happend and I signed to help it come out. It was a pention by PC gamers.

Here is a comment from that same link:

"Tony Shoupinou, a community manager for Namco Bandai, has been following the Dark Souls petition thread since the beginning, and is impressed with the turnout so far. "I honestly wasn't expecting such a massive support," writes Shoupinou. While he does not promise a PC port - or even comment on its likelihood - he assures fans that his bosses have heard about the petition's success, and are monitoring it to see what happens from here."

Why are people even trying to challenge the fact that PC gamers were the ones asking for this?

why did you choose that article when kotaku's story has more information? Of course PC gamers wanted the game..i dont think anyone here is even doubting that.

"Launched last week when a Namco representative on the company's forums suggested that strong enough demand could get the job done, the PC Dark Souls petition has been met with overwhelming response, or at least overwhelming enough for the forum admin to get a visit from his higher-ups."

The petition didn't just come out of no where...it was asked for by the rep from namco..and here is the follow up post that was posted a week later after

"Damn you are amazing!

I honestly wasn't expecting such a massive support. My boss(es) even came to talk to me about this, after it explodes all around the world. If you wanted to have the attention of Namco Bandai Games, now you have it.The future is in your hands, and I hope you will keep supporting this.I make a personal objective to make sure every relevant people in Namco Bandai Games is in touch with this formidable effort."

So you can stop trying to act like this was some random petition that just got lucky. Had the namco rep never even hinted it was possible for the game to be ported the petition wouldn't have exploded like it did in the following weeks that later then helped make them decide to port the game over.

Umm, so you have horrible reading comprehension?

Not my problem.

it's simple, that link reported the first reaction from Tony Shoupinou, a community manager for Namco Bandai. It was his reaction to the petition from those PC gamers. Everything else you stated was based off that reaction.

All you are saying by suggesting anything other than what is simply stated here is that you are either desperate or dumb, but perhaps it is both.

EDIT:

Here is the last paragraph of that link

"PC gamers who want Dark Souls still have a ways to go before their dream becomes a reality, but getting Namco's attention is definitely a big step in the right direction. With any luck, you, too, will soon have the opportunity to be roasted by dragons, poisoned by frogs, and eaten by treasure chests."

Yes PC gamers made the petitions and yes we consolites laughed at you, but I still supported it because I supported gamers having the experience, the franchise and From Software.

Yes they did, and they should have at least kept the lighting as a graphics option for the PC version if they were serious about it being the "lead development version." Don't promise what you can't fulfill.

#81 Posted by princeofshapeir (15105 posts) -

I would also think consolites would be glad there is at least a version of Dark Souls that can be enjoyed at 1080p and 60 FPS. The whole fuss about the begging bullshit is fucking dumb. Who cares? Yeah, PC gamers petitioned From to get the game ported to PC, and guess who won? Fans of Dark Souls.

not really, the game was still excellent (so I hear), they just couldn't achieve all they wanted to graphically

Colonial Marines was horrible for a number of reasons, mostly because Sega was paying Gearbox when Gearbox was financing other games with that money, then when Sega was asking for a finished product chucked it off to the cheapest no talent having hacks

Didn't hermits beg From to release theri game on PC in the first place? I think herms need to shut up and be grateful for their crumbs.

Ungrateful bitching like this is why From should have pissed on hermits beggars and let them wade through the hordes of broken, half ass western RPGs that they had been praising for years before they found out what a game with good game play was actually like.

No

Yes, they did.

Stop lying, most everyone here knows this d-bag

Except for the part where it didn't happen.A namco employee stated that if there was interest in the game on PC then a port was possible, even stating "Someone to make a successful petition?"

In response to that, a petition was created to show Namco/From Software that there was a significant interest in a PC version. So no, there was no begging.

What an idiotic response.

The link says everything, stop the DC and stupidity lostrib. All you can do now is shut up and wait for the next opportunity to try your BS in another post to show your ignorance and failed arguments.

http://www.ripten.com/2012/01/09/petition-to-have-dark-souls-ported-to-pc/

Such bitterness and aggressive posting for nothing

“There is always possibilities to have games adapted on PC and the good news is that Dark Souls is not a 100% typical Console game so the adaptation is possible. Now to make things happen, let’s say the demand has to be properly done. someone to make a successful petition?”

What you posted does not help lostribs argument at all, you do realize that right? I don't know what you think you've done by posting that, but if you believe that anything you have here saved him then you are mistaken.

"...hermits begged From to release their game on PC in the first place"

Yep, my original comment still holds up. Thanks for the additional link and quote but it does nothing to change those facts.

It's pretty much From Software that asked for attention for a port first.

Hermits didn't start it

"Internet petitions are normally as effective in bringing about a desired result as closing your eyes and wishing really hard, but with more than 66.000 signatures accrued in just one week the petition for Namco Bandai to release uber-challenging dungeon crawlerDark Souls on PC seems to have gotten the company's attention"
