Dark Souls director contemplating easier mode

Dark Souls, the nefariously ball busting game by From Software could get an easy mode in the near future so more people can experience it. During a recent interview with Metro, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki said he was kind of bummed out at the reputation their franchise has garnered over the years. It seems the team’s aim was not to scare away potential players, instead giving them a “satisfying” challenge as opposed to a walk in the park most RPGs tend to become after your character hits Lvl. 10.

From my limited time with Dark Souls, I don’t really seem to have a problem with the “difficulty” per say. My biggest gripes were the respawning enemies and the lack of any explanation regarding the game’s mechanics. I’m not saying any game should spoon-feed the player but Dark Souls takes ambiguity to a whole new level.

    What are your specs? Also have you tried the res fix?

  3. My specs are far better than the minimum requirements.And I have been using the res fix.But the problem is that even though Fraps shows 25-30fps,I feel like its just 10-15 frames.Its barely playable.I feel like I just wasted 1500 bucks for nothing.Didnt even get all the collectable items with the prepare to die edition.
