Dark Souls PC port to use GFWL

Enjoy your zombie PC.

Lets not go overboard. Origin is worse than GFWL and you know it.

GFWL prevented me from making save games in Fallout 3 50% of the time.

I can at least make save games on my Origin games consistently.

Yes, but what would you rather have: buggy games or your computer being part of a botnet?

This really sucks. However, I probably will still buy the game anyway, so long as there are no other issues with the port, and even if there are, I may just wait until they drop the price.

That said, as awesome as having new content is, I really hope that console players have access to it, either as a free update or a reasonably priced DLC. No one should be locked out of content because of their choice of platform.

Well since I already use Steam, whic monitors all the shit I do while playing Steam games anyways.

i would want neither personally.

As I stated when I originally signed the petitions for a PC port. I refuse to buy any game with DRM. This includes DRM like STEAM. Its just not worth it to me anymore because it gives me an inferior experience (and thats assuming that the port will be a good one).

captcha: Heated debate

Yeah its probably going to get there captcha

Gorilla Gunk:
Not going to lie, I do find it massively funny (and kind of sad) that there's already another petition to get rid of GFWL, not to mention a ton of people who probably did sign the petition saying they won't buy the game anymore.

If you guys keep making petitions for every little thing Namco Bandai might start to rethink this whole thing.

I doubt it, the PC port is probably pretty much finished by now.

I meant for future Souls games.

This is a really bad decision by From. They have lost my sale on this alone, even though I already own it on I would have really liked playing the game without the stop-frame animation going on with the PS3 version. Also the guaranteed cleaner graphics would be a nice plus.

Right now I'm just going to avoid the PC version unfortunately, GFWL is nothing but a glitchy fist up PC gamers asses and I don't want to support it or From's decision in any way.

EDIT: I can say that I wasn't assuredly going to buy this game again on PC, but now that I know what they are using for DRM they've darn well assured that I will NOT buy it again for a superior system.

Well thanks for the news OP. Guess I can take Dark Souls off my wish list. That saves me $60 so yay I guess.

Why are they trying to commit suicide?

On top of GFWL being absolutely God-awful, its region locked. That is, you can't buy anything over if you're outside of North America, certain parts of Europe and Japan. THAT is some of the biggest bull ever. On top of that, that would make damn sure your game loses tons of sales. Its absolutely fucking retarded to do that. You want DRM? Get Steam. Steam sales make people who'd otherwise not get it get it in droves, making up for any loss the discount would give, not to mention that LOTS of people will be glad to pre-order it. Also: ITS NOT REGION LOCKED!
Capcha: this is it

I just yelled about it here. https://twitter.com/#!/AdamJensenSI/status/190198698918166530

GFWL is the worst thing in gaming since Custer's Revenge.

Anyone who uses GFWL has gotta be trying to commit suicide, it's the only explaination.

Also, for clarification sake, did you work on anything relating to Deus ex to have a twitter and webpage link regarding them or did you just have good timing and snatched it up before anyone else?

And here I was, being so happy that Dark Souls would be on PC, and now this...
http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com/ The only thing to sum my feelings up accurately.
CAPTCHA: royal flush. Anyone got something witty to make with this?

What Webpage link? it's just timing :p

Although Elias Toufexis and eidos montreal are following me, which is cool.

Oh yeah! And I just wanted to point out that you can't spell God awful without GWFL. XD

Captcha: best seller. It's what Dark Souls won't be on PC if it operates off GWFL.

ResonanceSD:

Whatever the hell this is. Also, I'm curious as to whether they have an opinion regarding the GFWL thing.

That's the official page for Sarif Industries that Eidos Montreal created.

I guess it was easier for them to port over the multiplayer this way.

Still buying, but I won't like this crap. It even ruins box art dammit.

Steam is waaaay the fuck region locked, it's just that they service all the regions despite keeping them vigorously seperated.

I think that is a perfectly reasonable response. If a game costs more than $10 then it isn't worth the hassle of GFWL. I do have some GFWL games but with the exception of Fallout 3 I haven't ever paid more than $10 for them. I bought Fallout 3 as soon as the no-GFWL mod was released, which was about two weeks after release.

Now I don't care for button mashing games if they don't have a compelling reason for playing so I never really wanted this game on PC (Give me RDR though) and I had no intention of buying it anyway but there is zero chance I will pay more than $10 for it unless GFWL can be modded out like Fallout 3.

EDIT: A lot of people say that GFWL is a cancer on PC Gaming, it isn't, it's Syphilis.

At least you can GET stuff on Steam without getting a "MOVE TO THE US, TARD!" message.

well that's a bummer, guess we'll see if the petition dose anything.

There, just what you asked for.

Forgive my ignorance... and laziness to do my own research, but what is GFWL?

Games for Windows Live which is a horrible online service. Many other people here have said better than I can.
captcha :i see. Ok I can live with the stereotyping ads from Little Caesars but I will not stand for captchas with precognition.

This is really disappointing. GFWL is an extraordinarily bad service and asserts itself between you and the game like no other.

Still, I'm looking forward to seeing how DS turns out.

Huh. I guess the rumors that GFWL was going to be shut down soon weren't true after all. Pity. I was kind of looking forward to watching publishers scramble to keep their games working.

I don't think you understand. Origin doesn't just monitor stuff; it actually uses your CPU and connection to run spambots and shit. Somebody caught it making fake accounts in support of a pro-EA petition.

Also Steam doesn't monitor anything besides your gaming habits. Where did you get that idea?

Well I was going to finally buy this game and see what the big deal was about. But now it seems I won't be. Which is a shame I was pretty interested to see what the big deal was about the Darksouls series and if it was really hard as people seem to make it out to be. Oh well no big deal for me I can still play the Legend of Grimrock.

Hype meter before thread: 5

Hype meter post thread: 2

If it hits zero, I'm not buying.

And while this sounds petty to a non-PC gamer, you just don't understand how completely DISMAL GFWL connections are. This is like playing CoD and having nine of ten games terminate from multiple lost connections. And trying five times to join one game.

II2:
I think the FO3 GOTY ED ditched Windows Live, unofficially, wisely, on Bethesda's part.

Not my copy, at least. Bastards...

Well, fuck.

How is GFWL still going on? God damnit. I guess I wont be touching this one after all.

SargentToughie:

AlternatePFG:

It's a lot easier for FROM to incorporate the online components of Dark Souls into GFWL which is very similar in framework to XBL, rather than Steam which would require them to do a total overhaul of the system.

Now, I don't know anything about the framework systems of the online component, and this may make me sound like something of an idiot for asking, but doesn't Steam link up with PSN now? Wouldn't that mean that they could potentially use the PSN code and just make some modifications to make it work for steam?

*dives into a foxhole in fear*

Captcha: geez louise... that's a great sign.

Relaaaaaaax. The answer is that yes, that would be possible... if the PS3 copy used Steamworks in the first place. Which it doesn't.

;_;

thats low.

i hadnt paid much attention to this game to be honest and when i heard it was going to be a pc port i thought i might pick it up but yeah i think ill skip it with this addition.

as for origin being worse than gfwl.. well i could actually make an account for origin which is something i have been unable to do with gfwl, due to constant time outs, etc

Oh GFWL, why don't we all turn our clocks back four years as well. Then it'll will be fine.

My first, and last, experience with GFWL was Fallout: 3. Thankfully, one of the top mods on Fallout 3 Nexus removes that abominable excuse for digital distribution from the game entirely. But it makes me so very, very sad that I'll have to deal with the pain of using it in order to play a masochistic game.

Oh. Wait!

I get it now!

Have you used GFWL? it terrible and a legitimate reason to not buy something.

"Hey PC guys we are packing dog shit with the port you wanted! Why is noone buying it now..."

Luckily there will be user made patches for this, sadly that will disable online support... well until someone makes their own Dark Souls server.
