Dark Souls Futurepress strategy guide in stock 16/11 at Amazon - £12.69

Found 15th Nov 2011
If you love Dark Souls or suck at it, this guide is very complimentary the experience. It's hardcover and has some very nice quality art in it.

It's cheaper from Waterstones since you can get quidco on it but the availability of it there is 2-3 weeks.

How does it make the guide useless?

it does not make it useless, it does make some of the info inaccurate, however I dont think the patch changes any strategies to do with bosses etc
Great guide and anyways you can just refuse the patch which does take away but still.

Any details on the patch?

Shame that it's out of stock now. I'm glad I got my order in before it said that. Hopefully mine will still get shipped :O
Bought mine instore @game for £14.99. Its like the Bible for this Game and the patch will make no difference for the actual game. Only for PvP Strategies.
I hope they sorted my copy before selling to anyone else as ive had this on order with them for ages
