Dark Souls Prepare To Die Edition on PC for Only Ten Bucks

By Viet Do . March 15, 2014 . 11:00am


Of course I’d want to play a game where I die 50 times within the first minute.


This weekend GMG has two Dark Souls discounts going on for the RPG bargain hunter. Earlier this week Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition got a brand new list price, dropping from $29.99 to $19.99. Steam Store and just about ever other retailer is selling at the reduced list price, but GMG went a bit further and slashed it a further 50%, down to $9.99. The deal ends on Monday, March 17th at 8AM Pacific.


On Tuesday this week, Dark Souls II released for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Sorry PC gamers, your stuck waiting for the April 25th release date (but hey we get higher resolution texture and better frame rates). Fortunately, the PC game starts out at $49.99 – or $10 less than the console version. On top of that GMG is also throwing in your choice of a $12 Credit or $10 Cash Back bonus for the Steam key pre-order. The store credit will instantly activate on your account, while the Cash Back will take 2-3 business days to process. Taking the Cash Back effectively drop the game to $39.99 ($20 cheaper than the console versions) while the credit could be used towards a cheap game this weekend… perhaps Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition?


Finally, its the last beta weekend for The Elder Scrolls Online, you can pre-order for 20% off on either the Imperial or the Standard Edition. Will ESO be the next WoW or the next Tortanic? Guess we’ll find out in less than 15 days as early access headstart starts on March 30th.

    Please Namco, don’t let Dark Souls die with GFWL, release a patch

  • DesmaX

    Does Ds1 still uses GFWL?

    The game will be worthless if it still does

    • Zypharium

      Yep, it still uses GFWL. As long as they don’t release a patch that removes this garbage, I will not play it.

    • We’ve got word from Bamco that they’re “looking into a solution,” which I’m assuming for the time being is fancy PR speak for “go **** yourselves, all of you.”

      Though it’s still more than Capcom’s promised for Dead Rising 2, which has basically amounted to a hearty laugh in all our faces.

  • James Enk

    Can anyone tell me if the game has any technical problems right now?

    • Adrián Alucard

      The game works perfectly, I’m still playing (making time until DS II is released)

      If you want to play in HD, download the DSfix (max resolution is 720p, and it looks terrible, the patch improves the graphics)

      • James Enk

        My pc only does 720p, so will it be ok?

        • Ferrick

          should be fine

          • James Enk

            Nice,ty for the answers

  • Abend

    anyone bothered by the fact that is the penetrator from demon’s souls

    • Triplicity


    • Solbenzern

      i’m very annoyed in fact…

  • I bought it for $5 a while back and even with the DSfix it’s still an awful port. I would recommend anyone interested to wait until Namco Bandai removes GFWL. I know it hasn’t been confirmed that they will, but they’re already working on removing it from Ace Combat and they’re looking into it for other games.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    So DS veterans, is it worth starting with this, Demon’s Souls, or should I just jump directly into DS2?
