If you like Dark Souls and are a multiconsole owner with a Switch, portability or 60fps?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - If you like Dark Souls and are a multiconsole owner with a Switch, portability or 60fps?

I am definitely getting the Switch version. For me, being on a cartridge is the most important thing though. Dark Souls is not a new game to me. Instead I want a version of the game that I can keep coming back to for the rest of my life, and disks are much easier to damage than cartridges. The portability of the Switch is nice too though. Basically the Switch has all of the advantages over the PS4.

This sentiment goes for all games really. Any game that I've already enjoyed enough to play again, I want on the Switch. I have currently collected a lot of consoles, and I would kind of like to get rid of some of them. If I can have one console with most (or all) of my favorite games, then that would be ideal. I am already confident that the Switch will be the best selling console yet, so I am prepared mentally to be in collector's mode and do what I can to collect all of my favorite games on the Switch.

For a game like this IMO portability is not a plus. Yes I can continue it outside but I won't be able to play it when I am on a train or when I am away from my house. When you're outside there's a lot of distractions and a game like Soul you will need to focus. One distraction can be crucial so I would rather have a 60 FPS for the response time.



Portability every time, and also to support 3rd parties on a Nintendo system. It's healthy for the industry to have another viable platform for 3rd parties to thrive.

Portability.

Easily this for me.



 

For me I value both portability of the Switch and the 60fps of the PS4 (my primary gaming platform) equally. What will probably make me buy the PS4 version, however, is the online. You see, a lot of people on the Switch will probably be new to Dark Souls and won't be as skilled, making the online aspect way less enjoyable than they would be on a platform that already has an established audience.

I'd like to go for Switch Souls, but it really depends on Blighttown.

Stable framerate and i would take the Switch version. Otherwise i would likely buy it for Xbox One. And i usually don't buy remasters.

First of all: portability also means for me: I can play it in a hotel room or at my parents, where I can't take my home console with me. And secondly: Train works for me personally. Put headphones on, take a seat and immerse yourself. I played my first session of BOTW on the train, and it was awesome. I nearly missed my station to get out of the train.

Well, that might not work for everyone, but you could give it a try, you might never know. But I think everyone could profit from portability if staying in a hotel or at someone elses house. Also portability helps me to play it in my own home in bed or on the balcony. Even that is already a plus.

Less skilled community means - more blood puddles that show me dangers ahead. And less skilled red phantoms. Both sound like wins.

I play multiplats on my PS4 and that's were i'm getting Dark Souls.

Besides, playing Dark Souls on the go doesn't really appeal to me, it's not the type of game i like to play on a portable and without constant internet connection there won't be any co-op, ghosts, invasions and messages.

60 FPS is a huge difference, i want to experience Blighttown at more than the 10 fps of the PS3 version.

Also i still have like 5 JRPGs left to play on my 3DS so all my "on the go" gaming time is taken.

Wow... really? Did you select 1980p 60fps on youtube? Is it in full screen?

Its so clear the difference 60fps has in how smooth the graphics are... but if you cannot see the difference, why this maybe may be one of the reasons developers always goes for resolution and not fps. Maybe a lot of people cannot really see the difference for some reason.

1080p, 60fps, full screen, still looks the same. However, when I put the video on 0.25 speed, I can see that the left side is a little choppier sometimes.

The difference is night and day.
