Dark Souls Games on Demand, Freezes in character menu?!

#1 Posted by OurSin_360 (881 posts) -

Anybody else download this? Figured i would try the game out and see if this on demand thing was any good, so far the damn game won't even work.

Tried Deleting cache (both hdd and market place) and re-downloading, twice... still freezes, usually during the character create screen.

So did i just get scammed out of 20 bux or is there a fix? Anybody else get the game this way or am i the only one?

Also, whats up! Guess this is my first post here lol

There's always the silver lining that you at least paid in bux as opposed to universal sand dollars.

I don't know what's up with the game. Maybe check the Xbox.com forums.

Thanks for the response. Yeah i posted this on the xbox forums too, nothing. I wonder if i'm the only person who downloaded this game? Should have just got it at gamestop i guess.

Still broken!

Has anybody downloaded this game and had success playing it? cleared cache and re-downloaded about 5 times now. Tried running off a USB and tried deleting the update and running offline. Also deleted any corrupt files, nothing!

Probably about to reach my post limit for the day, but any more suggestions would be appreciated.

@oursin_360: Yeah man I downloaded it not too long ago . Same problem but deleting the cache worked for me .

Yeah, i don't know what's up now I've since tried a disk version as well and it still crashes at the same section. smh, haven't even gotten to play this game lol

even with the disk version ?? that is strange . have you tried installing the game ? It is a fantastic play

Yeah, tried installing and everything still froze with the disk version at the same point. I dunno, i just know i won't ever risk downloading a game for xbox again, even if it's just the game glitch. People on the xbox forum say to get the console repaired lmao, smh, just wasted money and time like i'm going to take my console in JUST to play 1 game. lol. I'll probably try some other stuff, maybe copy all my saves over and just reformat and try that I don't know.

It really does sound like you need your xbox repaired. I've played Dark Souls (disk version) from start to finish with no problems of freezing. Also I've played several games on demand with no issues.

yeah I would agree with above . but is there an issue with other games ??

Nope, no problems with any other game. Only game that ever gave me trouble otherwise was Darksiders 2, and that was also game specific only more people had the same problem. Although this is the first on demand game i've bought (and ever will buy). I do have a few arcade and indie games though, and they work fine. Don't see a reason to spend more money to play one game.
