    LAN dark souls pvp.

    lets pretend that when you pressed start, one of the options to select was LAN.
    you'd pick a character, start at a bonfire and be able to step out into a burg or moonpit replica to duel another player on your Local Area Network (basically no lag, the ps3s are both connected to the same router/switch but are hooked up to their own tvs and what not).

    how would you feel about that? do you think it'd be a waste of the developers time and resources? perhaps you think it'd be a great way to duel friends locally or even allow the game to have local support similar to a fighting game like, for example, street fighter?
    or maybe you don't care, are lost and are trying to find advice to fight ornstein and smough..?

    let's here your opinion.. minus the last part haha.

    It would be great to host events and such, but when you get back to the normal connection the lag and latency will be even worse than before, because you got used to LAN.

    i think it'd be cool to have personally.. but i wouldn't want to see a lot of the developers resources dedicated towards making it happen. if it was an easy thing to do it'd be cool tho.

    i guess this should be in dark souls 2 general.. but it's more related to pvp as pve wouldn't be balanced with lan.

    edit: i've actually left a message for some developers that are close to their community on another forum asking about how hard this is to implement.. if they say its relatively fast and easy to do would anyone interested in this wanna fire up a petition to send to from?
    *this is for dark souls 2 obviously.

    Why not? The more features, the more fun.

    unless it takes the developers to much effort.. i'm asking some other devs how long it took them to implement their lan.. maybe it'll give us an idea?
