It's more as my lazy man second copy. It might end up inspiring me to do another run as a spell caster though.
That might not be a good idea given that it's apparently an unpatched (and currently unpatchable) version of the game, which means the online features are disabled because it's not the most recent version. Rumor is that From Software didn't want to deal with the strain of having a ton of new players jumping onto their servers playing the first Dark Souls instead of DS2.
I don't know how true that is. Bandai Namco made a statement on their support page saying they're aware of the issue and has notified people that might be able to fix it, but then Bandai Namco isn't From Software and might not be aware of any stipulations that may have been involved.
I feel like there should have been a mention of how Precursor Games was letting their community do a lot of the work on the game for them according to an episode of Weekend Confirmed a while back. Which sounded super shady to me also.
I'm assuming that's still happening now, even though it's being kickstarted again. This whole thing is just an insane mess.
@toowalrus: ps4 has gaikai, don't count them out on cloud stuff if thats what your thinking.
Besides jeff has said all that cloud stuff is just more for server side tech than anything else.
Gaikai isn't at all the same thing that the Xbox One cloud is. Gaikai is On Live. It's streaming Ps3 games to your Ps4.
The Xbox One cloud service is for anything the devs can think to use it for. That could be storage for updates, dedicated servers for multiplayer, or like in Titanfall, it can be used to process elements of gameplay (Titanfall runs all of the AI on the servers).
I'm not sure what you thought "The Cloud" was, but it's always been a term used to describe a server farm that you connect to off site.
Good job guys, you've managed to kill a lot of interesting things about the Xbox One. Now the disk is required to play games you bought on disk, which means you can't instantly switch to any game you get an invite to unless you bought it digitally. It also means you can't take your entire game collection with you to any Xbox One you signed into your account on, and no 10 member family account plan either. No household family has 10 people in it, this was obviously their quiet answer to being able to lend games to your friends.
