    I downloaded dark souls and tried to play it but everytime I ran the game it crashed and wouldn't start. I'm pretty sure that my computer can run the game even though my video card is pretty weak. Could it be that since I'm on Windows 8 I would have a problem running the game? I just deleted the game and trying to download it again to see if I just had a problem with the install process.

    Does it crash right when it starts up? Are you able to get to the options menu and such?
    when I die... may there be friends who will grieve for me,who will carry our shared joys and pains, who will carry my memory

    I run DS on Win8 using the DSfix and 60fps unlocker and it is far better than the console versions.

    PC port of Dark Souls is ass.

    With DSFix it becomes better than the console versions. 60 fps in blight town #1


    Then theres mods

    you can opt to make the game look even better within DSFix if you got a decent computer. From there it surpasses console versions graphically and framerate wise.

    PC port is ass only without DSFix/Mouse fix for keyboard and mouse users *very much playable with it*

    After playing Infinite I'm super ready to get started on System Shock 2 but...

    I can't pry myself away from Dark Souls yet. I'm 2 bosses behind my PS3 file with like 50 less hours. But the last thing I did last night was permanently lose a bunch of humanity :mad:

    Maybe you didnt apply it right. Maybe you just have a crappy computer. Dsfix makes the game run great on my pc, 60+ fps and it looks so much better than its console counter part.

    ^should be sent, guys

    Thanks a lot man.

    I mostly play Civ V on Stream, but I just bought Baston and Mark of the Ninja. I have a very powerful PC, so I've desided to focus more of my gaming time on this than my consoles (except for fighters). That way, I can have my fun and patiently wait for better deals on whichever next-gen console I eventually buy.

    NP.

    Both of these games are in the top 3 or 5 of games I've bought on my PC, its only like 8 months lol but still.... those games :tup:

    Supergiant, Bastion dev, are working on a cyberpunk ARPG: Transistor. Which I am hype as shit for. Klei (i think), specifically the team that worked on Mark, are working on a stealth/information heavy tactical rpg that I just learned about yesterday. Also hype [despite not remembering the name :sweat: ]

    Man Im still not sure if I wanna drop $10 on XCom, but Im guessing this is the lowest its gonna go

    Probably will pick up TL2 though... but not sure if I should bother.

    If you don't have Binding of Isaac, pick that shit up. Especially if you liked Rogue Legacy, Binding of Isaac is a punishing game where you only get better through skill. Love that game.

    I have a laptop with Nvidia Optimus and after copying the files, game looks significantly better but doesnt reach 60 fps due to laptop hardware. More about 20-30 frames, except in few places without many environments. On the desktop it will play smooth definitely.

    you just have to disable antialiasing from withing the game.


    Game reminded me of Moonstone during the MS-DOS days....
    too slow!

    So.. returning from the dead. Seems like SRKGD / the Steam group has kind of fallen off a little. I just started playing games again and looking to revive the PC group a little. I see a lot of us still play, just not together seems like. Open to any suggestions on how to get some more interaction within the group. Game night(s)? Player of the Week / Month with ~$20 Steam gift? Let's toss around some ideas and make it feel like a community again, not just a big friends list.
