Sadly, I will not buy Dark Souls. This is one of those games that definitely needs a demo before I can be tempted to lay money down for it.

I can't stand half-assed ports. It's so 2004. From what I read here, Dark Souls definitely is one such port.

I'm disappointed. The game looks really cool in the vids and I really wanna try it out. Just not for 19,99.

The port blows but it's easily fixed by installing a single file and using a controller. The game doesn't lend itself well to KB/M anyway, there are a lot of sections that require precision locomotion and movement that are better suited to analog sticks. It's an amazing game and there is little else like it on the market. Your loss.

I don't play games with a controller. I hate them. It's one of the reasons I don't own a console. There's a sense of freedom that I don't need to explain to you, playing games with KB/M. It's a freedom I cannot miss, or a game simply would not be worth playing to me.

My loss, I'm sure.

Just to reiterate my last post, you DON'T need a gamepad to play Dark Souls and it's perfectly playable with a keyboard and mouse once you use DSfix and DSMfix. It's purely personal preference as to what control method you want to use and for me a keyboard and mouse was the way to go since I couldn't get used to relying on the right thumbstick to constantly center my camera. Although I personally have not beat the game yet (taking my time to explore) a lot of people using DSMfix and a keyboard and mouse have done so with multiple playthroughs and no issues.

I used a quick google search, but here's a video of a player using DS/Mfix and although he kind of sucks (barely raises his shield and parries) it shows how easy it is to play and do various moves with the k+m:
