Dark Souls III tips
Call me bad, but I actually found Dark Souls III a little harder than Dark Souls II and Bloodborne at first blush. Maybe I was just rusty, but my first few hours with the game were brutal. It took me more tries than I'd care ...   read

Where was this scene in Dark Souls III?

So, Dark Souls III, guys! Pretty dang good. Not enough creepy trees (Cursed Greatwood was such a creepy boss, loved it), but still dang good. And it's selling like fire right now. I played it on Xbox One last month by hacking Japan/buy...

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