It might be a mistake but Namco is bananas for finally bringing the DLC to consoles. :P

Also, how are the players in the PC version? I read on gaf that there are a lot of cheaters.

Yes, I've found cheaters to be quite common outside of devoted fightclubs and duels (Red Eye Stone).  It's even easier to cheat on the PC version than it was to BB/Dragon head glitch on consoles.

On the plus side, they did balance out PvP a bit (ie, no more DWGR >50 flipping, elemental weapon nerfs), so builds tend to be more varied.

Did this get re-released on consoles as the "Prepare to Die" edition or was it only on PC?

It's supposed to get that re-release later, but I can't recall the situation for NA.

I believe I saw it in Japan, I think that's why I got confused.

Thanks.

I'm playing this now, luckily I was at a good spot to jump to the DLC cause hydra was dead and I was at the lordvessel part.  just had to save dusk and get the broken pendant

beat the first two bosses.  greatsword is slow >_>  I beat artorias only using the roll stab after many attempts

I did it with only a Gravelord Greatsword and no shield my first time and I have to say it's definitely more fun that way.  You'll learn to recognize his openings after a while.  Shield makes it a lot easier, though.

If anyone is on the fence for the PC version, it's $20 on Amazon right now (game code, redeem via Steam).

You would be insane not to buy this game at $20 (unless you hate it). And if you hate it, WHAT THE HELL.

When it comes to the pendant, I actually had a little bit of an intention to play a prank.

Well that's not very funny for the players that tried to figure out if the Pendant was good for something. For months.

At least Snuggly gives you a Souvenir of Reprisal for the Pendant, which I remember is useful for one Covenant. That's the only use of that item.
