The definitive Dark Souls trailer is fan-made

The story of Dark Souls can be glossed over if you aren't actively seeking it out. And even then, there's a lot of effort required on the part of players -- a lot of piecing together of seemingly disparate in-game text snipp...

This first-person Dark Souls mod is neat but unwieldy

File this one under "Nice idea that needs work." Soul Slasher on YouTube has uploaded a video runthrough of Dark Souls in a first-person view and it's, well, a bit on the disorienting side. There's also the whole lack-of-lim...

From Software has narrowed down the fan-made shields for the Dark Souls II design contest and a few of them are spectacular. The six winning artists will get their design put into the game, their name in the credits, and a si...

'Brave' enough? Start halfway through Dark Souls II

From Software says it will give Dark Souls II players more freedom to explore the game world in their own way, even if that means letting them jump right into the deep end. "We're hoping that if the player tries har...

Dark Souls II still hard, features enhanced multiplayer

For those who were worried that "improved accessibility" was one of the main goals that the new directors of Dark Souls II had for the game, don't be. This game is hard, if not harder, than Dark Souls. While I struggled ...

Dark Souls II is probably the best part of E3 so far

Microsoft may have been touting the Xbox One and the majesty of The Cloud at its E3 Xbox press conference, but From Software's humble Dark Souls 2 for the Xbox 360 may have stolen the spotlight.  Easily more exciting th...

Namco Bandai treating Dark Souls 2 as a 'huge AAA title'

Namco Bandai's marketing support for Dark Souls was modest, to say the least, but apparently it won't be making that same "mistake" with the sequel. Dark Souls 2 is to be treated like a major "AAA" title, according to the pub...

Dark Souls II box art forgot to add color photo
Dark Souls II box art forgot to add color
by Brett Makedonski

Yeah, these posts are terrible. Everyone knows that. Even though readers only click to look at the images, I still have an obligation to put words in this space. These are those words.

So, the Dark Souls II box art is completely monochrome. That's something. Also, the figure is walking away. That's sort of a refreshing change from a guy with a gun facing forward but looking down, I guess.

Enthralling stuff, really.
