    DLC for consoles - who's staying with PC?

    Post by Kiljax on Fri Oct 19, 2012 5:52 pm

    As the title asks in a brief summary:

    Who will be still playing Dark Souls on PC once the DLC is available for consoles? I myself plan to remain in the PC area, but with the lack of activity on the PC forums, I fear that I may never be invaded again.

    Am I the only one mad enough to remain on PC?

    I had a suspicion that FROM released it on PC first for the player base to debug for them the easy way. This is their better title right now and they might fear hurting their strong base on the consoles. Given the problems we've had play testing wasn't very thorough. I'm sure they'd have noticed bonfires not turning back on after the fog wall drops for example. The real question is will they release a good enough patch for us to stay in the end.

    I don't even have the game for any of the consoles, and even if I did my time playing DKS would have been severely limited and inflexible if I did switch. The PC port might not be a very good port, but it's more than good enough for me.

    ...So I hope there'll be other people sticking with the PC version as well, as it would be very lonely if "everyone" decided to switch to the console versions. ;_;


    Edit:
    Now that the new DLC is out, would it perhaps be possible for cross-platform multiplayer between PC and Xbox players? It's apparently not possible at the moment, but it would be awesome if that was changed in the future. If I have to use GFWL even though I am on the PC; then at least there should be SOME benefits to it, right? ._.

    I'll still be playing this on pc, though to be honest the only reason I'm staying is because my xbox is broken and I can't be bothered to fix it.

    The main downside for the pc version is the lower number of players when compared to xbox. I really do hope they somehow implement cross-platform play between xbox and pc though, like Rarayn said.

    Aye, I can't really see it happening either. I'm sure it's possible, but I get the impression that From etc. don't really care enough about the PC version to actually do something like that.

    First, I am really new to the Souls series. I knew it for some time, because Demon had this reputation of being one of the hardest game currently and with the sequel I heard even more.

    Now, after watching a playthrough, I decided to buy it. At first I wasn't quite sure which version, or more precise on which system.
    I heard of the problems the PC version had, but that there is the dsfix. And I already had a XBox controller compatible for PC.

    I read a few articles and one particular said, that in the long run, the PC version might be the best. You know, because of possible modding and just better enhancing and so on.

    Also I was quite excited to play it finally and didn't want to wait this few days for the PTD version for consoles. happy

    I didn't regret it and will be staying on PC, even though I am sure invading might be happening on the consoles a lot more, but that hasn't do be an advantage and while I played it for about 9 hours so far, I got invaded 3 or 4 times.

    I have it for PC and PS3, but I'll be sticking with PC for the foreseeable future. Don't really feel like spending more money on the DLC.

    I don't PvP much at all though, just co-op on the rare occasion that I actually get summoned. The PC version feels kinda dead to me, which is alright since I hate being invaded anyway.

    Sadly, I think the "best in the long-term" thing was referring more to the modding scene and the possible improvement of the single player aspects of the game through mods in the future. It might develop a good, solid core of dedicated players and modders, but it will definitely be lonely on PC in comparison to console. I don't know how many of those nine hours you were human, but 3-4 times in 9 hours isn't exactly a lot. (Depending on a number of factors, granted.)

    The game doesn't have as much replayability value without PVP though, IMO. It's pretty short, and once you've "learned" it; not that hard unless you impose rules on yourself to make it harder.

    Would be nice if the current situation of it being "dead" is just temporary, and that it will eventually develop a bigger online playerbase...But I am not getting my hopes up. Seems we have a decent enough amount of PC players on this forum though.


    I was hanging around the Undead Burg the other day for some low-level PVP, and I was invaded a few times by one single guy. Apart from him, I only got a lot of failed invasions, both from people trying to invade me and me trying to invade them. Shucks.

    Yeah that's what I am doing at this point. I just can't get the hang of PvP. Every time I've been invaded I end up getting killed without ever knowing what the hell happened. A day or two ago in the Parish on my SL1 character I got backstabbed by a guy who was in front of me. I don't know if it's lag or glitches or what but I just can't win against other players. My attacks never land, or barely touch their hp, or any number of things. So I just kinda gave up on it, maybe I just suck.

    Used to be that way for me too. Can't do anything about the lag, but I actually got a little better at PVP just from watching a lot of videos about it, believe it or not. Of course, PVP is way more fun if you come up against players who aren't ONLY there for humanity or griefing.

    if you think PC has a low amount of players compared to xbox now just wait till DLC comes out and everyone jumps ship from PC

    I personally already went back to PS3 as soon as i beat the PC version.

    I find it kind of funny that about a month ago, there seemed to be great optimism for the future of PC PVP. Now it's only pessimism. silly

    I sold my BOX half a year ago... So I have no other option but to stick with PC happy
    And for PVP... I get some decent PVP at about 1.00AM-7.00AM... At 7 I need to pack myself up and go to work sad

    Out of curiosity, approximately how often did you get invaded then? I tend to try to avoid staying up *too* late playing DkS, but I guess it makes sense for more PVP to happen around those times for us Europeans. That's the early evening for them US folks, after all.

    How do you think, trying to run to Alvina's house to your bloodstain from the zone entrance and getting invaded before you kill the first Mage guy... Is it "often" enough? happy Very often getting 2 vs 1 situations. Sometimes getting Wraith with a forest guy, so I just let them fight happy I'm also Gravelording the same time, but vengeful spirits are quite rare, due to summoning troubles...

    Well, let's hope it remains that way now that the DLC is coming out for consoles.

    Sucks about the Gravelording though. The character I am currently planning is going to be one, so I was hoping that would get me some extra PVP action.

    Unfortunately I can barely get 1 gravelord abused guy who came to avenge his world in almost 20 fights... It seems like noone can use the sign, unless they are my region/session/bla-bla-bla... Otherwise I've always used Forest for decent PVP... Never got to Oolacile Township or K. Just lazy happy

    I have the game on both PC and Xbox, but when DLC drops for xbox i'll most likely be on xbox most of the time, mainly because PC connectivity is practically broken right now.

    I don't lose my hopes.Majority of PC gamers requested Dark Souls on PC including me and i will stand strong to my point and play only on PC (I don't even have console). Give From a break it's their first try at port. I am sure next Souls game is gonna be optimized on PC and released with Dedicated servers I hope atleast, we will see the future is "murky" (My bro Lautrec awesome character )

    Nice to see some optimism in this thread. Heaven knows I've not been a very good source of it.

    Apart from the connectivity issues, I'd say most of the issues of the port have already been fixed with mods. Some of the local connectivity issues can apparently also be fixed, though I've yet to try out the methods of doing so.

    Anyway, seems there's a pretty solid core of PC players hanging around this forum. I was starting to have doubts about remaining on the PC, but having you guys around gives me some degree of hope.


    Also, Lautrec is boss. Easily one of my favourite characters in the game. Dat voice.

    His voice is sexy. Anyway I suggest for PC players to list their steam id's maybe skype id's to contact and try to set some decent pvp's or jolly-co op
