Dark Souls PC Port Issues

There are various quotes on Eurogamer where From Software explains the difficulty they are having porting Dark Souls to PCs. "To be completely honest, we're having a tough time doing it due to our lack of experience and knowledge in terms of porting to PC. First we thought it would be a breeze, but it's turned out not to be the case. We're still developing right now - we're crunching right now," says producer Daisuke Uchiyama. "In Japan there's not much of a PC market and we haven't really taken into consideration that audience before. That's one of the reasons why we haven't been able to step up on the PC platform until now." He also admits that they are not including any PC optimizations, and have not been able to overcome the framerate issues the console versions exhibited in some areas. "In terms of the PC version, the quick answer is no, [we won't be fixing the frame rate problems]. Because we wanted to get the PC version out as soon as possible, it's more strictly a port from the console version. We haven't been able to step up into doing any specific optimisation for PC," he says. "However, in exchange for that, we have prioritised adding new content for both original players and new players."

Because there are a lot of RPG fans like me who only game on PC, and could not play this game otherwise. I know people on here will rip this game a new asshole for basically being an emulated console game, but I would rather play the game than not.

Having actually played both games on the consoles, I think they're wonderful but not so good that you'd want a shitty port of them just for the sake of being able to play them. All of the port stuff sounds ominous, I'd caution people to wait until other users or a PC centric site like RPS reports in about the port quality.

Oh yeah, certainly not a day one buy with talk like this.

And there are levels. Something like Darksiders that has only a resolution option and really needs to be played with a controller is one thing, but no options, not real mouse support and FPS issues? That is really a new low for ports.

We shall see, but no matter what happens I am just saying I am happy I have the option to play the game in some form.
