I've never gotten into the whole Demon Souls, Dark Souls thing. Call me a puny coward, but it just sounds like too much work. One of the dev team here played Dark Souls and had to give up gaming for a weeks afterward - he was just worn out!
That doesn't sound like fun...
However, with the game coming to PC soon, and with a raft of new original content, I feel I may have to face this beast of a game.
“Our fans demanded to see this game brought to the PC, and the noise they have made was simply too loud and too passionate to ignore,” said Daisuke Uchiyama, producer for Dark Souls at NAMCO BANDAI in today's release. “This also allowed us to dive back into the world of Dark Souls, offering a special edition of the game that offers more ways to die over and over again than ever before. Adding a whole new chapter to tell the tale of the Dark Knight Artorias was an opportunity we’re also proud to have taken, as we’ve managed to expand the experience for our biggest fans without compromising the balance of the core game that we worked so hard to create. This edition of the game is our gift to the fans.”
And, apparently, the punishment for fans is the fact that the game will tie into Games For Windows LIVE. Touche.
