    No way i’m preordering this until we’ve seen it actually running on PC. The first game was a horrible port-job.

    That said, my 780ti should handle this with no problem.

    I guess a GTX 465 is to be expected when the game isn’t being developed for next-gen. My GTX 760 won’t have a problem either. 60 fps is friggin’ sweet on PC, sure, designed at 30 fps on consoles, but man, does it improve the gaming experience.

    Which isn’t too bad, the graphics of Dark Souls isn’t that important, and you can always include mods. And I do hope it’s open to mods just as the first game was.

    I won’t be pre-ordering it just yet either. I never see any advantages to pre-ordering a game weeks in advance unless it’s a very, very good discount.

    I liked the first one so I planned to buy this one too… but then I heard you will get invaded even if you are hollowed. I dont want to play pvp, I dont wanna fuk with my internet connection while I play… so I guess they dont want me to buy the game. Luckily, there is another way :D

    I find 30fps on ANY platform for third person games to be perfect. As no matter what platform I am using a controller. If I am using a mouse and keyboard then I need 60+fps.

    I do hope they at least try with this sequel, the first on PC was a piece of crap! 30fps lock is NOT good at least give the option to have it higher, but the main and most stupid of them all was the 720p resolution lock!! WTF???

    Thank you DSfix it sorted out MANY of my problems!
