Bandai Namco blames the victim, re-iterates Dark Souls III ban policy

Bandai Namco has taken a rather unfortunate stance on banning folks over in the Dark Souls III PC realm. The publisher has warned prospective players that any interaction that alters your game data, including accepting a gift from a ha...

Adding Shrek to Dark Souls III is much more fun than you'd think

People really love Dark Souls III. People ironically seem to love Shrek, the jolly green ogre with a penchant for defending swamps. There just so happens to be a swamp in From Software's latest, so I suppose it was only a matter of time bef...

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

Dark Souls III gets the Mythbusters treatment

If you were banned in Dark Souls III, it was probably by accident

Dark Souls III has an interesting ban system. Since online play is crucial to the experience it would suck to have it removed outright, so you're put into a pool with other cheaters/banned players. You can still play, but it's not the same....

Here's how to get the deadly Armor of Thorns in Dark Souls III

Well dang, the Dark Souls board game crowdfunded half a million dollars real quick

I imagine the Venn diagram of people who play Dark Souls and people interested in board games has a fairly significant overlap. So of course Steamforged Games' Dark Souls board game was always destined to make a bunch of mone...

This wily Dark Souls III player has embraced his inner Patches

It's wild to think that I only started Dark Souls III about a week ago, and wilder yet to come to the (worrying!) realization that I've somehow clocked a solid 35 hours of play time in that brief window. From Software's action-RPGs are amo...
