The lights are on
There are a lot of masochists in the gaming community, and Namco Bandai loves it. The third entry in the Souls series is coming later this year, with all of the soul-crushing difficulty that players have come to expect from the franchise. This time, PC gamers won't have to wait or suffer with a sub-par port.
When Dark Souls II arrives on PC (simultaneously with the console versions), it will be more polished and an experience that lives up to gamers' expectations. Speaking with Shack News, director Yui Tanimura admitted that Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on PC was "sort of half-assed."
This time out, PC development got under way at the beginning, meaning better planning and preparation for those wishing to play on that platform. The increased focus on PC from the start was due to sales of over 300,000 copies (according to Namco Bandai). You can take a look at the new trailer, entitled "Despair," below.
Dark Souls II is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC later this year.

Already Despairing... time to get back to NG+++++++
I'm glad the PC is getting a proper release. I would prefer to play this on PC over consoles, which is a rarity for me.
glad this game is coming to pc.and now that we won't have a bad port.it will play and look better.not that the first port was that bad but still.could have gone a lot better.
that aside.you go pc race!.
The PC version was good enough (maybe greater imo) if you go through some of the trouble of modding it and if you used a gamepad instead of k+m.
Since this looks more like a proper port. Excited for this!
Also, I have noticed a more intense negativity from hard core PC gamers about almost every game. Even ones they play all the time like WoW. I mean, I have seen this same attitude from CoD or BF3 addicts and it still doesn't make sense. Why so serious? This is a hobby.. right? Or wait, I forgot, I think this is actually The Last Starfighter.
Well, this is good for PC gamers. I'm happy with the trailer.
So which would you say is better- preparing to die, or despairing to die?
Oh my God, best news I've had all day. Now hopefully we won't need a mod to set the resolution to 1920:1080...
That charriot. I can't wait to get my ass run over.
