Dark Souls III confirmed to run at 60 FPS on PC

Friends, we have been baited and switched. In a good way, though! When does that ever happen? There should be a more pleasant term for that like "bait and given a back rub." Anyway, we had been previously told that Dark Souls III will ...

This Dark Souls III strategy guide costs twice as much as the game itself

How much do you love Dark Souls? Enough to buy a deluxe strategy guide for Dark Souls III that costs double the price of the game itself? Because that’s what Bandai Namco and Prima Games are offering you. Now, admittedly, the Dark Sou...

Praise the Moon: Dark Souls is coming to Xbox One via compatibility

Badass blacksmiths make Bloodborne's iconic Saw Cleaver

Bloodborne's rife with unique weapons, almost all of them fitting the criteria of being interesting enough to warrant a real-life adaption. But, the Saw Cleaver edges out the rest this time and is the one that's actually made, maybe becaus...

Come watch Dark Souls III's opening cinematic

Bandai Namco and From Software have released the opening cinematic of Dark Souls III. Be warned, though, as it obviously contains massive spoilers for both the story and, presumably, at least some of the bosses. They're very cool looking ...

New Dark Souls III gameplay comin' in hot!

Dark Souls is getting its own comic series

In the past, I’ve said that Dark Souls is my least favourite game of all time. However, it finally clicked for me last week and having now finished the first game I can say that while it certainly has its fair share of problems, I act...

Watch someone beat all of Bloodborne's bosses without dodging

Trying to beat Bloodborne is like trying to break through a reinforced concrete wall with a toothpick. You keep chipping and chipping and chipping away, maybe eventually making a tiny crack, and then a tentacle monster comes out of nowhere...

This Bloodborne comic is too cool for still images

The hunt is a wonderful, terrible thing. A sentiment perfectly captured in this gorgeous, lightly animated Bloodborne webcomic, The Master of the League. You ever run into something that just leaves you wondering "how the hell have I never ...

Blood Rocks are now slightly less ridiculous to get in Bloodborne

To fortify weapons in Bloodborne, you must find increasingly rare materials. The last item in particular is a huge pain. A Blood Rock is needed to max out a weapon, but so very few exist. There's one toward the end of the game and another ...

Can you run Dark Souls III on PC?

As 2016 is looming in front of us, a lot of upcoming games stand out for me, but so far my top two are Mirror's Edge Catalyst, and Dark Souls III. The latter might even be the last Souls game for a while, so I'm looking forward to...

This box art is a good reason to get Dark Souls III on day one

Box art posts are kind of terrible. Everything of substance is squarely in one image. You look at it and think "Hmm, that's pretty okay." I write words that are unnecessary, either in an attempt to describe the cover, or whining about my ob...

Here's what Dark Souls III cooked up for PlayStation Experience

Hope you didn't forget how to use a shield after all the Bloodborne-ing this year. From the looks of it, you'll need all the blocking and rolling you can muster to best Dark Souls III's many lumbering foes. They're even in a flower garden!...

Bloodborne is offline for 'emergency maintenance'

Bloodborne DLC tips
When Bloodborne launched, I provided a series of tips for newcomers. They're still very much relevant for the dawn of the Old Hunters DLC pack, which debuts today, but I figured I'd provide a few add-on specific pieces of info. Note that there are light non-specific spoilers involved.   read

Here's how to access the Bloodborne: The Old Hunters DLC
