Dark Souls PC Announcement Coming?

Namco Bandai is teasing an announcement for Dark Souls, unashamedly using this as a way of attracting more "likes" to the Dark Souls Facebook Page. Thanks GameInformer, where they speculate that this announcement will be the revelation of a PC edition of Dark Souls that a lot of gamers have said they want and may very well has already been revealed via a PC Powerplay tease (thanks Ehkzai). They say the more people who like the page, the sooner the announcement will come, and as of now the 142k people who have hit the little like button have helped reveal exactly nothing, so it's possible this will require the participation of every one of Facebook's six quadrillion users.

One big thing about the difficulty in general is that it really punishes people who try to rush and cut corners. Even the "easy" enemies can really mess you up if are careless while fighting them.

Yeah exactly. It cannot be said enough how hard the game is for people who are impatient. If you're the type of person who rushes into things you will likely be destroying nearby hardware. If you decide to check it out always be patient and study your enemies, the game really rewards people who analyze situations thoroughly and know how to run from a fight when necessary.

Demons Souls might be a better starting point if you have a PS3, it has unlimited healing items and other more forgiving mechanics. Dark Souls is a real sonofabitch transition for people used to modern games

The game REALLY isn't that hard. The campfires and the removal of spirit form made the game considerably easier than Demon's Souls and even Demon's Souls wasn't that hard once you know what you're doing. After beating Demon's Souls one time I started a new character and beat it over the course of about 7 hours, dying only a couple times.

Shows the state of the industry when dying a few times counts as "jail rape."

That's so silly though, of course its easier after you know what you're doing. The difficulty comes in the form of figuring it out the first time which is far from easy. The bonfire functionality is more a convenience thing, there are few that let you skip difficult sections. Spirit form wasn't removed per se, its still there as "hallow" form, they just removed the arbitrary health hit in favor of it reducing item find and inability to summon phantoms. I have no doubt you died dozens of times and still read up on wikis and used youtube for some bosses

Sure I can speed run Dark Souls in like 4-5 hours now but the first time through was very difficult and the first NG+ isn't exactly a cakewalk either.
