More than a month after consoles
There was concern that the PC release of Dark Souls II would arrive long after the game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11, 2014. While the PC date isn't as bad as some had feared, it's by no means right around the corner, either: April 25, 2014.
As much as it would be nice to play the game at a higher resolution with better frame rates the first time around, I absolutely do not trust myself to hold out until late April. Looks like I'll be buying Dark Souls II twice -- first on consoles, and again on Steam at some point.
