In Dark Souls II, the speed with which weapons degrade is tied to the frame rate. That system wasn't an issue for those of us who played the sequel on last-generation consoles, but it has been an annoyance for PC, PS4, and Xb...
Dark Souls II's current-gen re-release Scholar of the First Sin found an opening in the Japanese sales charts and struck at an opportune moment. Most weeks, it would barely make a dent, but on this particular week, it wa...
Do you like Bloodborne so much that you want to have a $20 shirt that says "Bloodborne?" Well, if that is the case, then boy howdy does Sony have something for you: a black shirt that says "Bloodborne" on it for $20. You can ...
How much time have we spent staring at that damned Bloodborne logo during the game's long loading screens? Actually, I'm not so sure I want to know. With save files totaling 50+ hours of play, my number would be gross. From S...
With the tough-as-nails approach, cryptic story, and ethereal aesthetic, Souls games are a tough sell. But the quality of each game (and the talent of director Hidetaka Miyazaki) shines through, and Bloodborne is th...
The first time I saw Eileen the Crow, I was startled and almost attacked her on the spot. That would've gone badly. She's a powerful hunter -- easily one of the coolest in Yharnam -- and turning against her even late into th...
[Spoilers for one of the main bosses in Bloodborne.] The next time you see a note left by another player in Bloodborne, consider rating it "fine" even if it's not all that insightful. As shown in this clip from Chief023, you...
I'm terrible at Dark Souls, and I'm too broken to play Bloodborne, but at least I can always appreciate the amazing score as the phrase "You Died, Ya' Feckin' Ejit!" seeps into view for the trillionth time. Thankfully, for mu...
Yesterday, we talked about From Software Director Hidetaka Miyazaki's favorite boss fight from the Souls series. Interestingly enough it was the Old Monk from Demon's Souls, an encounter that blurred the l...
It goes without saying that there are minor spoilers involved (mainly just names that don't have any context) for Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin herein. This tip is mostly for returning players who want to experience the new content -- I don't want people to miss out on it for making a simple mistake.
The increasingly impressive From Software president, Demon's Souls and Bloodborne creator Hidetaka Miyazaki, has told Official PlayStation Magazine UK (via PSU) which Souls series boss is his favorite, going back to what a lo...
This guy. This guy right here. It was late at night and I was already on edge in one of Bloodborne's unnerving Chalice Dungeons. I had hoped to quickly find the lever so I could proceed to the boss, get my ass kicked a few t...
Did you seem to have an easier time with certain Bloodborne bosses than other people? Well, unless you are real good/Chris Carter, this might just be because you have too much time on your hands. Reddit user meatballz is repo...
YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin f...
Between the recent release of Bloodborne and Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, I've completed five playthroughs between them. It's a perfect time as there aren't a lot of huge releases currently, and I'll rarely, if ever, see the release of two Souls games at basically the same time. So that got me thinking, what's your favorite?
Love 'em or hate 'em, this is the generation of remakes. It seems as if remasters of the previous generation pop up more frequently than actual new games, but if said remasters actually end up funding new games rather than th...
