It did for me. I ended up selling it and getting the PC version, which has been pretty low on crashes for a Bethesda game.

Thanks... pass for me too. You'd think there would be fixes. Oh well.. too many other games and unopened games to buy a problem.

Don't think about it; JUST DO IT!!!

Guys, Dark Souls is handsdown the best game I have ever played. I got it for Christmas last year along with Skyrim for the 360. I opened Dark Souls first and began playing. 4 months later, Skyrim was still unopened.

Dark Souls is awesome because it's different and unique. Yes, it is hard, but once you learn how to play it, it is so much fun, and you actually feel a sense of accomplishment when you beat an area or boss after dying 20 times.

Seriously, just do it. Oh yea, and grab the Thief's Ring at the start of the game.

vitomins 11-08-2012 04:56 AM

Still have a bunch of other games to play, but can't resist getting 3 great games for $35...In for all 3!

Haha it was the opposite with me for New Vegas. I can't honestly remember it ever freezing on me. Maybe I'll give FO3 a shot.

thatguy3579 11-08-2012 05:59 AM

TU! These are 3 of the best games from this console generation... if you don't own any of these you should really jump on this!

Fallout 3 froze on me quite a bit while New Vegas froze just a couple of times. Regardless, two of my favorite games... worth the freezing to play the incredible game...

Fallout 3 PC is also $10 on Amazon with FSSS: http://www.amazon.com/Fallout-3-G...779&sr=1-1

burticus 11-08-2012 06:15 AM

Fallout 3 GOTY interests me a tiny amount for the DLC.... but I still have New Vegas unopened here that I got for $5.

Dark Souls does interest me, but at this rate with my current backlog I might as well wait and it will be $10 soon.

I would buy Skyrim GOTY for $10 but not Oblivion, but then again I'd probably never get around to playing it anyway.

TheThriftyOne 11-08-2012 06:22 AM

Dark souls isn't even worth $10 its artificial difficulty appeals to the lowest denominator and honestly the game is boring as hell. Remember those games where you had to replay the same level over and over until you memorized it to finally beat it...? Yeah dark souls
No actual skill required but plebs think it makes them hard core because XDDD I play dark souls I'm so hard core XDD.

I would say yes for Fallout 3 as it is the only one I played. There is a lot of blood but it looks extremely unrealistic and shouldn't bother anyone. Other than that there is no nudity or sexual content I believe.

Baguda 11-08-2012 06:41 AM

Given that both versions are the same price, does anyone know if Dark Souls runs or looks better on the PS3 or Xbox 360 for those who have both consoles?

I have a couple 7 year old (single core AMD Athlon 3200+) PCs and they can't play the majority of games even with an 8600 GTS graphics card. Unless it's a simple game (like a Popcap game) it's safest to get a console version if you have a PS3 or Xbox 360. Perhaps Fallout 3 isn't a CPU-intensive game and would work, but it would be risky unless the game is almost as old as your PC.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but for the sake of a great gaming experience please do not listen to this comment. Even if you completely ignore difficulty when judging this game it is still one of the best games of all time.

FYI, the PC isn't 12 years old. The human playing it is :)

Edit: and it's looks like he's getting the PS3 version anyways.

I completely disagree with this. If you die, it's because of a choice you made. When you succeed, it is extremely satisfying because YOU did it (not just that you bought that mountain dew with the double xp code under the cap). Each fight is monumental as the enemies can kill you as easily as you can kill them.... You can't just take direct fire from a dragon 40 times and still be standing. If it's possible for a fantasy game to be realistic, this is it.

I don't find anything boring about it. There's a rich story IF you care to dig into it (or you can completely ignore it). The characters and enemies are all very unique and interesting. There's a large variety in the environments. The difficulty creates a level of tension that I haven't seen matched in a single player game.. and the combat is ridiculous fun. Plus there's PVP, if you care to engage.

On the difficulty, it isn't even that hard. There is a very steep learning curve as it doesn't give you any information about how to proceed in the beginning of the game. Once you get a few weapons and learn the combat system and figure out where to go, it becomes much easier. Once you figure out that there is a puzzle to defeating many of the larger enemies (hey, running headfirst at that gigantic armor-clad skeleton wielding a sword twice my size probably isn't the best idea!).

This is one of my favorite games ever, though I'll admit it isn't for anyone. If you're disugsted by the farmville-esque click->reward mechanism that's permeated every game the past several years, you'll love this.

"The lowest common Denominator"????

LOL, you've got this totally backwards. This game is the exact opposite.

Boring? You must be used to running andgunning through a game with superhuman powers. No actual skill required? Now I know you're a parody poster.

Go back to your Call of Duty, dude...:confused:

I believe both Best Buy and Target do for the holidays. If you know you want the game, though, why not just order it from Newegg for the same price and save the drive and time waiting for either store to look it up to verity the price? Newegg may be OOS by the time you get to the store and then you're out of luck.

Unfortunately, You can't copy full games to disk on ps3.. Blu Rays hold alot more information that HD-DVDs.


Every time I buy a ps3 game it goes on sale the next week! Thumbs down!

To note, I'm pretty sure the 360 games are all on DVD and none were on HDDVD, but yes, I understand your point.

I wouldn't say any of these games are "suitable" for a 12 year old, but im sure the 12 year old could enjoy fallout, if thats what you mean.

Dont know that hed like dark souls, IMO. May be "too hard"


ssbase21 11-08-2012 08:46 AM

Yes! I'll finally get to play the fallout 3 DLC, hope its worth the $10 when i have several other games waiting.

Thats my thought. I'm hoping its still at least $7 come April or May 2013 when I'm satified with my level of completion.

For $10 it's an easy pickup... the add on content was more expensive then that... the more I got into the game, the more it froze. I could overlook it though as it was such a good game... I know some others said it was unplayable due to the freezing....

kencka 11-08-2012 09:29 AM

Played Fallout 3 on PS3 years ago without DLC. Although freezing issue did occur, it wasn't too bad. It might have happened less than 5 times from start to finish.

I read on a forum somewhere that it was because of the save file gotten too big. The recommendations was to avoid using laser weapons.

What happened was when you kill enemies with laser weapons, they turn to ashes. Those ashes do not disappear from your game unlike regular corpse. That was what contributed to the huge save files. I don't know if they fixed that but that was years ago.

Back to the deal. I have backlogs in double digits. Still deciding on Fallout 3 for the dlc and Oblivion. Will wait on Dark Soul.

tsgrimey 11-08-2012 10:12 AM

I have Fallout 3 for PS3. It does freeze/stall after a certain amount of play time. You can work around that by shutting off your PS3 and turning it back on. I also read that you should not save too many saved games, but I didn't, so I couldn't tell the difference. Personally whenever it stalled, I waited about 5 minutes, and the game resumed fine. Fallout 3 is such a great game, very open-world. Although you can't get pleasure without going through pain. There is so much to do in the game, I can see why there are glitches in the game, and not every problem can be found or fixed easily since there are so much variables. For GOTY edition $10, that is totally worth it. I would have rebought it if I did not already buy the Broken Steel DLC.

I just bought X360 of Oblivion and PS3 of Dark Souls. Quite excited!

aznchris99 11-08-2012 11:34 AM

Nice!!

lennonst 11-08-2012 12:03 PM

It has nothing to do with how many saved games you have, it's how big the save files get. Around 8-9mb and it freezes more often. I beat the main game and my save was less than that and it froze maybe a total of two times. I went back to do the DLC / explore more and the save file grew pretty quick, once over 9mb I quit playing and went back to an old save.

You can do the DLC at any point and you don't need any items from the DLC to beat the game. If you're trying to get trophies or something I'd just use an earlier save and do a DLC, reload that early save do another DLC, etc. It'll keep your save file down in size.

Just traded in Skyrim for my PS3 for being a POS. Not sure if I want to support Bethesda, or even put up with their crapola anymore. I got Dark Souls not long ago for this price. Seems like a good deal, just hope I didn't buy $10 worth of cheap deaths.

If I wasn't so poor I'd have jumped on all PC versions, but my hardware probably couldn't handle these very well :\

At least the prices are nice, and Newegg is awesome!

They're not cheap, but the game does expect you to have patience and learn fast.

A general rule of thumb is that when you go around a corner, put your shield up, because a spear or something is probably waiting to impale you. When you walk into a room, look around first, also listen. When you die, think about how the level/enemy is designed (whichever of the two killed you), and it's usually pretty obvious in retrospect how to avoid a similar fate. Also, save your humanity for when you really, really need a partner to help you out. Lots of bosses seem easy the 50th time you've beaten them, but the first time, you might need to watch somebody take on Quelaag before you can solo her.
