    It's so beautiful!

    Post by deadagain on Fri Nov 23, 2012 8:54 pm

    So the t.v. I have been using for the last 10 years has finaly died. It was a sony trinitron that i picked up at a pawn shop. It served me well and took all the abuse I could throw at it. It took about 35 hrs before Dark Souls Withdraw started to set in. I started to feel tired and sick, I could hear the invasion sound when I would walk into a room and I would break out in a cold sweat. I cant afford a personal t.v. right now so i decided to ninja my way into the family t.v. After everyone went to bed I plugged my ps3 into the 60 inch hd t.v A message came up I have never seen before HD cable detected would you like to switch bla bla something like that. I said YES!! With shaky hands dripping with sweat i loaded my beloved copy of Dark Souls into the system. Loaded Genji Khan adjusted the brightness and started to see things I had never seen before. The HUD had texture like the pictures are on leather. I can READ the text for once! There is so much color I have never seen, so much detail I have been missing out on. I just sat back and a single tear rolled down my face it was so beautiful I had to start a new character and name him Sony in honor of my old t.v.

    HDMI. mmmmm. We don't have regular programming hooked up in HD but the PS3 is. ( and the DVD PLAYER. ) LOL.. Dread the day the 55" dies, but know we'll run out and get something larger. HDMI Gaming is sweet!

    lol, good for you.

    it was prototype for me, 3 years back. I think most of us know the feeling.

    Now you just have to get you a personal version, its even better when you don't have to share.

    Its like the game is new again. I even just heard dialogue I had never heard. I went to clean up before ng+, killed undead merchant, killed Griggs, killed Domnhall (felt a little bad about that), killed Daughter of Chaos and took firekeeper soul to firelink and Anastacia spoke to me, she asked me to "save us all" and said other stuff. That was pretty cool. I like her alot more now.

    Don't forget to hook the optical audio out to your stereo system. I have 7 speakers. Crank it and enjoy the visuals.

    After 2,000+ hours I was pretty shocked when I got the pc version and a new computer to play it on. 24" screen vs. my 55" tv and the picture is so much better. I've been shopping for tv's and have settled on a 55" Samsung.

    So, to date Dark Souls has cost me:

    Xbox copy - $50

    PS3 copy - $40

    PC download - $ I forget

    Xbox dlc - $15

    Gaming computer - $1,478

    Dark Souls Official Guide - $20

    Mini art book - $15

    Japanese art book - $50

    Samsung 55" HDTV - $1097 (assuming it's still on sale when I go back tomorrow)

    Which is just short of $3,000. My name is callipygias, and I have a Dark Souls problem.

    Just thought i'd share my souls problem too. This is how it happened in order-

    Xbox copy - £60

    Ps3 - £300

    Demons souls - £25

    Demons souls (American) - £30

    Gaming PC - £800

    Dark souls for pc - £50

    DLC - £12

    So that's £1277 spent on an addiction since I first played a souls game. Callipy we need to stop. :|
