This thread on the Gaf has some good info on the PC version of Dark Souls 2, including confirmation that the PC version will run at 60FPS vs. the console which will run at 30FPS: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=538551

Yeah back when the PC version was announced, FromSoft said they had never done PC before, and really just wanted it out and functioning, anything beyond that they weren't touching, and it was highly suggested players use a controller.

That's an interesting thread bluexy, didn't realize they reprogrammed the engine from scratch. Raijin1999 may find that interesting as well.

It had Games for Windows Live instead of Steam, among other things. I'm just glad the DLC came to consoles.

I hope they get away from the awful GFWL for Dark Souls II.

Or at least get better precautions against hackers. Imagine the frustration of an invader killing the giant blacksmith in Anor Londo and then turning it twilight by attacking a certain illusion. Think of the annoyance of trying to protect the Darkroot forest from invincible cheaters. Thankfully there's a new patch that blocks that stat-sapping exploit.

I thought it was kind of ungrateful that PC gamers criticised Dark Souls on PC so harshly given they were fully aware there was little/no expertise in PC porting within the studio and that the game engine was entirely optimised for consoles.
Taking that into consideration, I'll admit the initial price that Namco set was a bit "ambitious" considering the quality of the final product. They should have been looking at fan service and actively covering costs with a slight profit margin rather than milking the game.
Just my two cents worth on the subject

Yeah that confused me a little too whenever I saw it lKasHl, I just run a controller, cry a little bit on the inside when I'm trying to co-op with friends, and have a blast with the game. Modders fixed up a lot of the graphical issues anyway, so I can run the game in 1080p instead of 720p, with 60fps even.
