I strongly suggest not watching this Dark Souls III launch trailer

I've tried to spoil as little of Dark Souls III as possible, and that includes using old ass screens that mostly show the beta area towards the beginning of the game. But it's out now, and if you either aren't sold yet or want to see a...

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

This Dark Souls tweet perfectly sums up my feelings about Dark Souls III
