    The new DLC is just additional areas and content, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to use your old characters.

    So don't do that then, make a new character for it.

    I'm praying we get the DLC oct 25th like Japan. Imagine if they got the DLC a month or two before us....I wonder if that would mean they could use all the new stuff in pvp against us. I might just abandon this forum and the game until DLC is released. Ive already spoiled way too much of the content for myself

    I've been planning on getting it for PC when it comes out just so I can enjoy the beauty of the game on a nice and powerful graphics card. A Blighttown with no framerate lag, all in maxed settings. I'm just gonna plug in my wired xbox control into my computer to play this. Even though the developers said they aren't including mod content, I'm pretty sure somebody in the community will go out of their way to make some excellent mods to play on the PC edition. Perhaps some sweet multiplayer mods? Either way, I do hope they release the DLC for the consoles sooner, so those who choose to not buy the PC version don't miss out for too long.

    But shouldn't the additional RAM and processing power of my computer be able to overcome that? I just figured that the 360 didn't have strong enough equipment to run that area properly... Shrug

    Well from what i understand the game will stay at a steady 30fps. So those areas should be a lot better then they were on consoles. You arent going to be able to get 60fps or anything like that though.

    The internal resolution is locked at 1024x720 and the frame rate is locked at 30fps. In other words, you will basically be playing a smoother Xbox 360 version... nothing more...

    Bah, like 60 FPS actually matters that much.

    Thats a bit of a shame. I wish I had the proper gear to hook my PC monitor to my Xbox. My TV's resolution is piss poor and overall pathetic. Maybe then I'll save my money for the 360 DLC. Unless the PC version has a incredibly large population compared to what we have or steals population from the console versions (which in all honesty hope doesn't happen, I do not want the console versions to die anytime soon.) Other than that, I guess I no longer have a preference of which version I play the new DLC on..

    I agree. I believe 50-60 fps is absolute gaming beauty for my eyes. I adore the smoothness of all the frames displayed in my game in such an amazing quality. I used to play WoW for years at only 15-20 fps I believe and that was fine with me, I just prefer 50-60. Of course in a game like this, lower frame rates can equal death, so I wouldn't be able to do that. This based off of my opinion, of course, so I'm sure they're plenty of people that do not notice or care for the difference.

    The Eye only sees around 30 FPS. I don't see why 60 is what "everyone" demands (By that, I mean the standard)

    Personally, I notice a difference in smoothness when it's above 30 fps. Might just be a mind trick or something, but games look noticeably smoother to me compared to 30 fps. I don't see why people would want 60 as a standard. Like I said before, I played WoW for a few years at only 15-20 fps, which was still enjoyable. If it isn't hard or too much work for a developer to have a game run at 60 fps, then by all means, do it if they like to. Don't think it should be a standard for gaming, however. Just a nice addition.
