      i dont think we are ever going to get the patch. we are 1.03.

      the 1.04 patch was bad online, so now they have a 1.05, which makes online AWESOME apparently and even improves frame rate in certain areas through optimizations.

      namco bandai is really, really bad at doing this stuff, hopefully From Software insists.

      i'm on my 3rd play, halfway through. waiting on the patch.

      it's done! blame it mostly on Microsoft's awfully long QC "standards", and Namco's lack of interest in patching games in the west. They are really, really bad at it.

      The 1.05 patch is supposedly a remarkable improvement.

      here's to hoping guys. I love this game but it does need a lot of work.

      Got the pyro trophy to sit alongside the sorcery one. May play through again for miracles. Pretty sure it's too late to add it to my current character. Just joined the darkwraith covenant for the glove and red eye orb. Where's the best place to look to invade? I was having a lot of luck in Blightown, but it's an annoying area to hunt down someone.

      I had to fight off my first invader. He wasn't ready for me, i think he ran out of estus flasks and was pretty much hiding in a corner until i took him out with ranged attacks from my halberd He kept trying to hit me with the spell that blocks estus recovery but he couldn't do any damage to make that worthwhile.

      My addiction to this game is finally starting to fade. Over 130 hours between a mage and pyro, not sure what to do at this point. I skipped Frampt on my pyro and joined the darkwraith covenant so I could invade, but it generally takes 30 minutes to invade

      The reason for taking so long is because no one wants to be in human form.

      Had to download an update for the 360 version today.

      Does anyone know if it's finally 1.04 or not? I can't find any news about it.

      Several weeks after its release in Japan, the 1.05 patch for Dark Souls have finally been released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in Europe and North America. The update weighs in at 11 MB on the Playstation 3.

      Roll roll roll.

      I actually beat him on my first attempt this play through. Started a new character and just mashed all my points in dex to do a Uchikatana thingy build. When I beat NG and NG+ on my other character I had no idea what I was doing when it came to builds and weapon/armor enhancing.

      I do now though.

      While wearing my dark moon convenant ring, I was summoned to Anor Londo a few times only to spawn on the bridge immediately flanked by TWO other players who lit me up as soon as I gained control. Had to take off the ring
