Hey.

Was wondering about getting it too.
About this GFWL in the process of being getting rid of, will there be problems with the game?

I'm very tempted in buying it but I don't want to be denied to save my progress…

Yeah. NES games were tough. When I'd die I would burn up and stop playing for days.

I know it'll probably be the same with DS but I wanna see, like many here, ''what the fuss is all about''.

If anyone has any way to work around the Dark Souls issue I'd love to hear it. I started playing recently from steam on Windows 7 but I just 'upgraded' to Windows 8.1 and GFWL does not work and I figure why bother installing now? As far as I can see only way is a crack but the one I downloaded sets off so many alerts on virustotal.com that I dont really want to try it on a new machine.

Hey.

Downloading it right now.

Just found this on Steam. TL;DR but I hope this works for you.

Thanks. I'll pass though as it requires you to install GFWL but gives a mechanism to on 8.1. Since its like 1 month to death, I'd rather wait for a better answer. Namco does say it will work after July though (link)

Humph.

Having quickly read the article, I'm a little afraid of having bought the game.

I hope they figure out a functionnal solution because I don't think I'll be able to complete it before the end of GFWL…

I would assume you will still be able to play Dark Souls in offline mode though, no?


Humble Bundle has a daily bundle that includes Paper Sorcerer and Legend of Grimrock. Only a little over 13 hours left in that one.

Yikes. Maybe I should start playing Dark Souls before it permanently goes offline?

I'll give it a try. But if it's too NESy, I'll make you spend the next 3 months playing nothing but The Adventures of Bayou Billy. Mwa-hahahaha!

Isn't that a bit on the harsh side?

Dark Souls can be played offline without a need for GFWL, assuming you don't care about achievements, invasions, or PvP. Although I think you might have to start a new game, I'm not 100% sure.

Really fun game. Combat is quite good too and there are some interesting fights.

I explored the entire map and there are some fun goodies

Well written game too. The dialog is fun and it's well presented .

I also must recommend Expeditions, I was amazed at the tactical combat done by a small studio. The story is quite engrossing as well. Oh, and this game is no pushover.

Default Indie Royale Turing bundle.

May 28th, 2014, 23:23
Just bought Eschalon Book III in a bundle for about 5 $.

I feel like I stole from the Wrangler but then when I think about how much I paid for Books I and II, I feel better.

Indeed, I paid something like 40 canadian $ I forget how long ago and about 28 for the second one some time ago too.

I refused to buy the last installment for full price when it got out since I knew about all those sales going all around.

So, just a little heads up for those of you who'd like to have it with 5 other DRM free games.

Indie Royale.

Not only do you get Eschalon Book 3, but Eterium also looks like it could be really good. Overall, this seem to be one of the best Indie Roayles in quite a while.

Hard Reset was on my Steam Wishlist (@14.99) thanks for the heads up.

BTW, just how does this bundle system work? I feel like I'm stealing here. And when I say how does it work, I'm not talking about the process of paying for the games at the various bundle web sites.
