From Software

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...
Depending on how far you are into Bloodborne, you've probably come to realize that this late-game area, accessible using the "Mergo's Loft: Middle" warp from the Hunter's Dream, is one of the best spots to quickly earn Blood...
Simon Parkin got a rare interview with From Software president, Demon's Souls and Bloodborne creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and it is fascinating stuff, charting Miyazaki's dramatic career change at age 29 (and equally dramatic 80...
Oginam has beaten Bloodborne with an in-game time of 36 minutes and 59 seconds, currently the world record for an any percentage completion. As with most speedruns, multiple game-breaking glitches are used to achieve this sh...
Last week, Chris told us about a game-breaking glitch in Bloodborne that made it so an item called the Lunarium Key, which is needed to reach a main-story boss, wouldn't appear. The issue has been fixed, so you can play co-op...
Getting invaded sucks. Chances are, you're going to die. There's a reason you're being invaded. The other player is confident in their ability to slaughter you. They are probably nigh impervious to damage and carrying some s...
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is scheduled to launch on Steam this Wednesday, April 1 with current and last-gen counterparts becoming available the following Tuesday, April 7. From Software has described the reissue...
It's not exactly a new concept for Amazon to bundle the hot game of the week with consoles. That's been happening for a while with the likes of Grand Theft Auto V and Dying Light being two of the more recent example...
After struggling to find a co-op partner for a deceptively tricky magic-slinging boss in Bloodborne last week, I started to browse for answers, and it seems like the PlayStation 4's rest mode -- the thing that lets you suspen...
Before Bloodborne or even Demon's Souls, From Software created Shadow Tower, another dark action role-playing game, which released for the original PlayStation more than 15 years ago. According to the latest episode of the Pl...
From Software is onto us. There's a room in Bloodborne full of lots and lots of breakable pots. At the Cathedral Ward lamp, take a left down some stairs and then take a right at the well. Next, swing left past the Church Gia...
It's been quite a week since I first obtained Bloodborne. I'm currently on my fourth playthrough and I'm finding out that I missed quite a bit on my first run. Specifically, there's multiple endings, one of which involves a c...
[Update: I've located the hidden boss, with instructions below.] Bloodborne is officially out, and I've already seen a lot of discussions brewing about the game. Some sentiments are positive, some are negative, but a gre...
From Software's Bloodborne is by all accounts a superb experience, but it does come with tedious load times. Luckily, the development team is working to remedy the issue. "The development team is currently exploring another p...
Here's a question that I've gotten a lot of in the past 24 hours -- "where do you recommend picking up the Souls series?" Due to quite a bit of buzz behind Bloodborne (which, thankfully, is actually good), people ha...
Bloodborne can get pretty rough at times. All Souls games can. To help you ease from the frustration to the fun zone, here are a few tips to help you on your way. General non-spoiler tips will be frontloaded at the top, but the progression-spoiler ones will be in the second section. Note that no bosses or story elements are spoiled, just navigational tidbits in case you get lost.
Hidetaka Miyazaki created a legacy with Demon's Souls. With three Armored Core games under his belt at From Software, Miyazaki dared to capture the spirit of the King's Field series for a new era, and thus the Souls...
As usual, Denmark gets the best promotions. PlayStation Denmark is partnering with GivBlod to give you Bloodborne if you give blood. It's part of an effort to increase the amount of male donors. Or you could get another, undi...
Uncovering the mysterious, unforgiving, crazy-but-believably-crafted world of Lordran is one of the greatest pleasures experienced in not only Dark Souls, but in the last decade of videogames. I'm still wrapping my head aroun...
I've been stubbornly attempting to resist the Bloodborne hype train. Getting your hopes up, especially for modern AAA games, usually leads to nothing but pure uncut disappointment. As we near the actual launch of the game, h...
If you're worried about seeing too much of the game, stay far away from this video. It goes places. That said, you know a trailer is good when, without hesitation, you go back and rewatch it several more times in a row. Admi...
In an update to the official Bloodborne website, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has detailed the various modes of online play that will be available.
Attempting to go into Bloodborne blind? I feel you. It's not something I can pull off consistently given the nature of this job -- that's one of the big tradeoffs -- but I still try with select titles. The PlayStation Blog ha...
From Software doesn't just make Demon's/Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The company created Armored Core, too. It also followed its King's Field games with another first-person, skeletal RPG, Shadow Tower. Shadow Tower has be...
The Boy Scouts are notoriously prepared, and for good reason. Rushing into a situation makes for plans going awry. When things go off the rails, failure's usually imminent. In a game like Bloodborne, failure's part of the fo...
The lady in Bloodborne's story trailer needs to learn what soothing means. A mug of warm cocoa on a cold winter night is soothing. The sound of the tide rolling in and out is soothing. A demon hunter doing his best to not get ripped limb from limb by ferocious, overly aggressive beasts is not soothing, lady.
This should be prefaced by saying that trademark news should always be taken with a grain of salt. With that out of the way, we might have a heads-up as to what the next game in the widely beloved Souls series is. In Europe, ...
There are shields in Bloodborne after all, SCE Japan Studio has confirmed to IGN. Well I'll be. Shields will seem like a comfort to Souls players who haven't yet experienced the faster, in-your-face action of Bloodborne, but ...
I'll be the first to say it: it's going to be the year of Souls. With the release of Bloodborne only a month away, which looks to redefine the experience along with its wonderful change of setting, From Software has been...
In this short runthrough of Bloodborne's character editor, IGN was able to create a Harry Potter lookalike now that glasses are an option in the game. That's a worthwhile addition, but it's the "Origin" (i.e., class) option ...
From Software's latest action-RPG looks to replicate the butthole-puckering tense gameplay that originated with its predecessors in the Souls series. IGN posted the first 18 minutes of gameplay (minus character creation...
Here's the lowdown on Bloodborne's procedurally generated Chalice Dungeons that are different depending on what item combination you use to summon them. It's different from Dark Souls' hand-crafted precision, but it could ke...
I know, I know -- you don't need a guide for Bloodborne just like you didn't need any assistance with Dark Souls or Demon's Souls or King's Field. You're that good. Or, more likely, you just wanted to go in as blindly as poss...
Region-free Dark Souls multiplayer, just the way we like it. From Software has issued an update on Steam that allows players to summon and invade one another regardless of where they live. While these cross-country connection...
Instead of writing messages with a soapstone like in Dark Souls, we'll rely on these spooky fellows, the appropriately-named Messengers, to communicate with other Bloodborne players and see visions of how they foolishly rolle...
Procedurally-generated dungeons in Bloodborne, huh? I didn't catch the PlayStation Experience demo showing them until now. Not something I would have expected for the game given how good From Software's hand-crafted worlds ca...
The long-time-coming update that replaces Games for Windows Live with Steamworks in Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for PC is out today. Full instructions on how to transfer your achievements and save data are over here, b...
European desks are about to get a little more cluttered with the announcement of a special “Nightmare Edition” of Bloodborne. The €119 set comes with a variety of doodads, including a spooky looking quill set...
Bloodborne is probably my most anticipated game of 2015, and this trailer is just cementing that choice. You'll get a good look at the deliciously bloody gameplay, including some full-on co-op portions that look like a ton o...
