For me only the colur of dropped items and bonfire hv changed also ithink they hv remastered it so new players can play who havnt played it before which i serously doubt but again its for the 1 percenters who didnt pkayed it.
Looks like some of the animations run at very different speeds. That means there is going to be a major learning curve for any returning players. Also, any speedruns done on this game will have to be listed separately from the original, for multiple reasons, one of the major ones being that you can use multiple items at once.
I seriously don't understand all of the bitching and moaning surrounding this remaster. The game looks fantastic (new effects are stunning, old assest still hold up), it runs buttery smooth (even Blighttown), the quality of life improvements are great, the DLC is included, and the online will be reignited (alonged with some welcomed rebalancing). It checks all the boxes for a good and worthy remaster.
Sure it isn't a full blown remake with the Bloodborne/DS3 engine, but who was seriously expecting that? Who seriously thinks Dark Souls needs remaking? It's a masterpiece as is.
And for all of you who are like, "It's $40 for DSFix.” You do realize DSFix isn't perfect right? DSFix still doesn't let you play the game at 60fps since anything above 30 breaks the game's physics and causes other bugs. DSFix also doesn't include the quality of life improvements like being able to consume multiple souls at once.
Dark Souls: Remastered is a worthy remaster.
I'm not sure why people are complaining. The new FPS cap is great and the textures are a lot less washed out and muddy. The original Dark Souls always looked like the screen was dirty or cloudy or something. This fixes that.
The first 14 minutes basically just shows what the trailer showed. It looks good sure but I'd rather then show off areas that were problematic like darkroot garden with the trees that looked like they belong in DooM (the original DooM not DooM 4) and I think that's an issue many people have with what we've seen so far from the remaster. It's all low demand areas , no Lost Izalith, no New Londo Ruins and no Blighttown nothing that we can definitively say "yes that looks much better than modded DS1 !" if they showed some of the problematic areas I mentioned in a trailer or gameplay then I'm sure some of the disdain for this remaster would die down.
Devion Kex Yes I've seen people releasing some videos of Blighttown popping up recently but I still think they should've shown Blighttown and darkroot garden in the network test. That way people would've gotten to see first hand that they're fixed, regardless I'm glad they're fixed well Blighttown at least
Bandai did a stream where they showed off blight town and it runs at 60 frames with no frame drops on console. We haven't got anything for pc yet but It can be assumed that it'll be much more optimized. there are also some youtube videos of people who had pre-release versions of remaster showing off the frame rate on PS4 and PS4 pro. It's 60 frames at blight town. 100% clean.
So what was remastered?
Looks just like the original with dsfix, which was required to play the damn game on PC in the first place.
Guess I shouldn't expect much when they charged us for a DX11 patch for Dark Souls 2.. which still lacked features GeDoSaTo had and still didn't bring back the 2013 version's features.
FROM, you may make some good games, but damn are you technically incompetent.
The models for characters still look about the same. Feels like they just upgraded a few things like having parallax occlusion and some lighting, particles and bloom effects. Maybe they fixed and added a few new things but for pc players this isn't worth buying.
much better now.
It seems that the pressure that fans made on youtube talking about things that were not good already had an effect, but we have to keep pressing for them to improve the game even more.
so many people asked for a remaster and now all thing backlash for literly giving everyone exectly what they ask for... i hope banco doesnt come out with any other good games because their definitly not going to remaster anything else.
Of course we will all buy this and love it, but PASSWORD MATCHMAKING is going to start a Twink/Gank Squad arms race. All they had to do is leave matchmaking alone, but this change will literally open a whole box of problems and twinks we can't begin to imagine. See everyone there!
I must say I am dissapointed. I was not expecting a remake. I expect bigger graphical overhaul. Its pretty much a DSFix for console users. I even prefer the old bonfire and light reflections. Compared to skyrim special edition (which was free for previous pc owners and featured way bigger overhaul of the graphics. This is not really worth the discounted 20$ on pc.
I know From Software doesn't plan on making anymore sequels to Dark Souls, but I hope they make a Sequel to Bloodborne.
I just started playing it recently and boy is it fun... and frustrating. But mostly fun.
Frisky honestly I also hope they make a sequel to bloodborne, but from is not that good at sequels bro. + the Bloodborne story is flawless, no need to ad new things to it. But I think we’ll se souls like games in the style of bloodborne, fast gameplay..
the reason people are pissed at this is because it looks more or less the same with DSfix on PC so no real change if you have been playing on PC. but honestly its a remake the reason why I am not upset is because they said specifically months age that there would be no real changes. yet everyone on PC still got pissed because they expected more from it like better graphics or different enemy placements like SOTFS had. PC players aren't satisfied because they already have most of what this offers but they have been going out of their way to say that this is insulting or that its nothing but a port honestly they just need to stop hating on something that's perfectly fine this is not a remake half the stuff they wanted was never going to be in here if you don't like it don't buy it.
It would have been a better deal if they simply made a package where you got Dark souls AND Demon's souls remastered. Clearly it's not that they've put that much effort in this on that doing Demon Souls as well wouldn't have been feasible. Because it's such a shame how many people have missed out of Demon Souls because it's a ps3 exclusive.
Did some little research of the remastered edition, turns out not much has changed. Same UI, same old bugs from 6 years ago, they removed the steam version that was modded to be playable, slight graphic/fps upgrade. No initial improvements to combat taken from DS2/3. Bummer Fromsoft really missed the opportunity to remaster DS into something "new" for new players yet familiar to old players.
Sunless Fiend if the only thing improved were the graphics and to me it seems like that is the only improvement based on the videos I've watched then yeah its more of an HD upscale. When I see the word "remastered", it makes me think of improvements that would be made to the entire game better. Fix bugs that were in the original game and what not. Same bugs from 7 years ago still exist.
A video says it reviews the first 13 minutes of the video, a full quarter of the video is represented with the trailer of the game rather than the content the game is supposed to provide, we in the Dark Souls Community have already seen the same game play for the remastered multiple times so how would this change our minds on the quality given to the community? When the game comes out the largest argument is going to be against the fact that they then put the effort in to update and upgrade the Dark Souls experience, players would have noticed already the poor quality light balance and the over excessive lighting in object placement. I'm glad that when Dark Souls remaster comes out I can tear it apart and modify its textures to properly represent the game
Its just the pc version with dsfix. Yeah because the pc base game was unplayable. Every pc player, myself included, are complaining about this despite the numerous bugs being fixed, texture overhauls and steady 60fps or 30fps that doesn't require a pc crafted by Jesus himself. This is a remaster not a remake. Dark Souls Remastered is just doing what every other remaster is, fitting the game into the newest generation of console.
