I too find it weird that they didn't bother to put out a PC version of the first one before releasing the second one but as someone who finished the first game and the demo on 360, I can say you'd probably be fine starting with the second one. There are flashback sequences and frankly, the story is pretty simplistic, even for a comic book narrative.

I liked the first game, not a GREAT game. But the voice of the darkness was bad ass.

Solution to that is uninstalling of PhysX.. yes, the Nvidia driver component.. completely.. uninstalling.. physX

Which means.. you will have to reinstall it afterwards..

Also the FOV.. oh my fucking god.

2k Games, you SUCK - Go read Wikipedia on FOV - and then die in a tar-pit, whoever developed this game and made that FOV unchangeable

How much you wanna bet Bioshock Infinite is the same fucking way, after people repeatedly pointed out to them they fucked up the FOV in BOTH of the previous bioshock games?

These publishers and developers learn nothing. The FOV is terrible. It's like I'm looking through a magnifying glass. When will they learn?

The demo is cheesey. Everyone is a walking cookie cutter stereotype. It's 2012, I have higher standards. This is pitiful.

I'm interested to know just exactly why the FoV issue keeps rearing it's ugly head time & time again this entire generation?

Is it simply multi-port laziness? Is it truly just lack of caring or is it that hardcore pc gamers(who care about correct FoV)are such a minority that they prefer to allocate resources elsewhere?

For me this immediately ruins the experience and forces me to lose respect for it's designers.

It's like paying to see a sprawling epic film shot in a theater presentation format of 2.35:1 aspect ratio, and then the Director decides to show it on a 4:3 screen.

It makes zero sense and you despise the Director.

All the PC testers play with a gamepad 7 feet away on a couch.

I have a 360 and a PS3. I really could play through the original if I wanted to. I just hate console FPS games. Other than Halo, and I only play that because I have a ton of friends who do. But Darkness is a game I would have liked to play through had they made a PC version.
