I'm stuck on the second dungeon. The one where you are at the beach and you jump into a whirlpool and enter this foresty area. In the middle there are several entrances and each one looks like a monster's mouth. The middle one I got two keys and found a large tail and wacked it and the entrance to the left of the middle one opened. I exited the middle entrance and entered the left one. I got the two keys here as well and wacked the tail. After disappearing however, it did not show an animation with the monster's bead erupting from the ground like the first time around. I went back outside and there are no new entrances. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

So I was watching a walkthrough of the new content. I saw a wood area, a town area, and an abyss area. There was the guardian, artorias, manus, and the dragon as bosses. Is that the entirety of the new content?

I bought the Dark Souls PS3 version when it came out last year and beat it several times. I sold it before the 1.04/05 patch came out that changed all the weapon scalings. Is the new content in the PC version worth buying the game again for the PC? I normally don't game on my PC so I would also have to invest in an Xbox controller. This is a pretty big investment just to get to play the new Artorias Abyss content. If it's just a small add-on, I am tempted to just watch some walkthroughs on Youtube.

I've seen some badly ported games on the PS3. This game isn't even a port, it's the better PS3 version out of the two. The first time I've ever experienced playing a game and felt that I was going blind from looking at it. The blurriness is just so terrible. Like I just got my eyes dilated at the doctor's, or someone hit me upside the head and I can't focus anymore. The extra tunnel effect from the letterboxing on the top and bottom, coupled with loading objects popping in randomly, made me queasy just trying to move around. This is the first time a game has looked so bad it made me feel sick. Go find a videogame stream on youtube, set it to 240p. Ignoring the artifacts from the low bitrate, that's literally how blurry the game looks to me.

I restarted my Gamefly account just to get this game. A wasted month. I honestly have no idea how people cannot see the blurriness. It's not my connection or TV. Other games look fine.

Is there a Japanese soundtrack with Japanese vocals instead of English? A couple of the songs, like Noel's theme, almost sound like they are trying to speak Japanese, but veer back to Engrish for the most part. I think it would sound a lot better in Japanese.

My ps2 is slowly falling apart and I am thinking of getting a ps3 in the near future. I have a few questions I hope some of you can answer for me.

1. Would it be wise to wait for the possibility of a newer, more efficient ps3 in the coming months? Or will that not happen until the holidays, at the earliest?

2. For backwards compatibility, I've looked at the Sony compatibility site and the 80GB ps3 seems to be able to emulate most of the popular games (God of War, SotC, etc.) that the 60GB already does. So what makes the 60GB better than the 80GB for a ps2 owner like myself? Is it for more esoteric ps2 games that the emulation team hasn't bothered to make proper emulation for? Or is it because of graphical and audio issues that are present in the 80gb version that the 60gb does seamlessly? Which leads to my next question.

3. I remember hearing rumors about degraded visual quality in games like FFX when people popped it into a 60GB ps3 and compared it to a regular ps2. Is this true, or has mostly everything been ironed out? How does the 80gb fare in comparison to the regular ps2 and the 60gb? Does it introduce more graphical glitches and audio issues (in the popular games) that will be an annoyance? I am basically wanting a good breakdown between the original ps2, the 60gb, and the 80gb ps3 in how they look and sound and how close to the original the 60gb can do with its built-in emotion engine as opposed to the emulation on the 80gb. Another good question is, can either of the ps3s do widescreen and progressive scan? Does the 80gb have a disadvantage here? I'm just throwing possible emulation problems that the 80gb might have, as well as the fact that the 60gb version isn't truly a ps2 (so I've heard) and isn't 100% backwards compatible.

Most people would recommend the 60gb over the 80gb, but other than saying the 60gb has better backwards compatibility, I really don't know what the real details behind it. I hope someone can clarify for me as I would rather get the newer 80gb version since it is more energy efficient, by 60 watts I think, is newer, and has 20gb more space. But then there's the question of compatibility that is still floating in the air.
