New Dark Souls III gameplay comin' in hot!

April isn't that far off on the horizon, but it might as well be an eternity when you're eagerly awaiting a new game. For many, that game is Dark Souls III, a franchise that has the pedigree to make waiting unbearable. If a new gameplay vi...

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 ...

 
GOTY 2015
Was there ever any doubt? Of all the distinguished and exemplary titles to grace the PlayStation 4 in 2015, few approach the wit and artistry of From Software and Hidetaka Miyazaki's Bloodborne. As the latest installment in w...   read

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...

Dark Souls players have found every item, says Miyazaki

As much as fans have pored over Dark Souls and will continue to do so for years to come, it feels like the series' mysteries may never be fully solved -- that no matter how hard we collectively search, there will always be more to uncover, ...

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!...

Majestic! Bloodborne is online again

Earlier this week, From Software took Bloodborne offline for "emergency maintenance on the game servers," presumably to address an exploit that led to players gaining access to content from The Old Hunters DLC without paying for it. The ser...

Bloodborne is offline for 'emergency maintenance'

Yesterday, I logged into Bloodborne for another evening of futile attempts to beat the optional boss in The Old Hunters. It's a maddening exercise in patience. One slip-up, and you're out. Plenty of people are struggling with the DLC's firs...

 
Demon's Souls
I know how many people love this game, so I’ll cut the preamble: Demon’s Souls might be coming to PS4. The game put From Software on the map, and introduced the format now used yearly for the likes of Dark Souls a...   read

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

Bloodborne, much like its predecessors, is a relatively esoteric game. Even simple things like locating a $20 DLC package can be hidden beneath the surface, so here's a quick rundown of how to enter the Old Hunters add-on. Basically, ...

 
Bloodborne DLC review
While many gamers out there are fighting the good fight against DLC, From Software is certainly making the case for it. Dark Souls had one of the most fantastic add-ons of all time in the form of Artorias of the Abyss, w...   read

A nice big 9GB patch just landed for Bloodborne

These new Dark Souls III screens are making me antsy

Bloodborne, an actually worthy game, is getting a GOTY edition later this year

I find it funny when developers release GOTY editions when the title completely doesn't deserve it. It's always interesting to see how marketing hype plays into some re-releases, as a bunch of titles don't even get the "Of the Year" moniker...
