I'm a 30 year old nerd who started playing video games in 1987 when my dad got us the Nintendo Entertainment system Power Pad bundle. I quickly got hooked after playing RC Pro AM, Zelda, Mario, Baseball Stars and Duck Hunt.
But what really sealed my Nerdom for life was when I played a game called Final Fantasy, it was all over after that. Ever since i've been a geek, a terrible one. I apparently refuse to grow up even though i'm pushing 30... I still game and more now than ever... Favorite series include Halo, Suikoden, Demon's Souls, Mass Effect, Deadly Premonition, Final Fantasy (fuck 11, 12, & 13), Assassins Creed, Mirrors Edge, Half Life, Gears Of War, Uncharted, Dragon Age, Resident Evil, Dead Space, Dead Rising, Grand Theft Auto, Battlefield, Fall Out, Tales Series (Vesperia etc.), Elder Scrolls, and The Old School Shadowrun, Shining Force's & Phantasy Stars.
On the flip side i've always been sort of a nerd / meat head hybrid. Being 1 of 3 computer science majors on the football team. It's a nice balance, this path also led me into Natural Bodybuilding which keeps me occupied when i'm not gaming.
I'm Writing this mainly because the Dtoid staff hasn't covered this utility (My tips be damned apparently!)
If you don't know who Durante is and play Dark Souls on PC for Christ sake Google the man... If you do know who he is but didn't realize he also built a utility to improve the already great port of Dark Souls II PC go here:
The latest edition of his utility will be updated there when available. What does it add? A number of options. How does it work?
1) Set your options in the .ini folder
2) Run the Utility as an admin
3) Hit activate, that's it!
The end Result? Much prettier Sun Praising!!!! (Switch Resolution to 1080p!)
So yeah I'm a bit too enamored with this I know but Dark Souls / Demon's Souls are pretty much my Favorite things this day in age in gaming and getting this much mileage out of it just tickles me silly.
So give this Utility a shot... and as always Praise The Sun!
