It doesn't.

The ''fix'' actually makes it so the PC version is THE definitive version of Dark Souls

Wake me up when an amateur modder does that on consoles

There was a day when you didn't need a fix for the PC to be the definitive version.

its sad that the game needed a high resolution fix ...but even without that, it was still the best version.

the console versions are riddled with slow downs ...especially in 'Blighttown' which probably hit less that 10fps at times on there.

so even without the HD fix on pc, it at least maintains a consistent framerate.


still, its about as bare bones a port as you can get. From Software basically just copy/pasted the Xbox version over to pc.

hopefully Dark Souls 2 is done properly.

yeah its a bit of a chore the first time you enter there ...but i rarely do that anymore.

choosing the Master Key at the beginning of the game = short cut right to the end of Blighttown.

Well I was going to get it but they aren't selling keys to anyone outside the US, ********. I really need to get myself setup so I can get around that one of these days.

all you need to do is use a US billing address.

i believe BeBen used some steakhouse address in Beverly Hills a few times. a friend of mine up the road used an address from a used car lot in New Hampshire.

lots of people outside of the US on neogaf doing the same thing. seems to always work without any issues.

i used my cousin's address in Florida the time i bought something off there.

it sucks you have to do that, tho ...i mean, Amazon is big enough that you'd think they'd allow people outside the US to buy on there without any issues.

On that note, Amazon is starting to tax in AZ soon so if you are using an AZ address you might wanna stop.

Blighttown was honestly the worst experience I've ever had with any video game in my entire life. I don't even know where to begin with that crap.

Could have picked it up in the last Humble Bundle for around $5.50 including a bunch of other games but 7 bucks is still a steal.

Wow, a vote worth voting for.

Dishonored, Borderlands 2 or Hitman Absolution 50% off.

Too bad GMG has already beaten those prices. And Amazon beat that Hitman price too.

Hopefully that means that with the 50% off of Borderlands 2, that mean the DLC as well. I already got it all, but still.

I do own all 3 though.

Has anybody played the Scribblenauts games before? Is this one worth it at $7.49?
