Dark Souls II gets a pretty sweet first-person mod

Dark Souls II had a few of the toughest bosses in the series, but they'd be especially hard if you played the game in first-person. That's what a modder named Benzoin-Gun has done, detailing his creation in the vid...

Dark Souls will shed Games for Windows Live next month

There were enough worthwhile PC games tied to Games for Windows Live that I was willing to put up with service, which seemed to range from mildly annoying to downright frustrating, depending on the day. For many of us, Dark S...

Dark Souls II Design Works book is full of bleak, gloomy pictures

Today in news that made me squeal like a fanboy, From Software has released a Design Works book for Dark Souls II just like its predecessor in Japan. It features over 200 pages of the darkly beautiful art of the Souls world,...

Dark Souls II's DLC bosses are HARD

Dark Souls II players aren't doing so hot against the Fume Knight from the Crown of the Old Iron King DLC. According to stats released by From Software, 93% of attempts against him haven ended in miserable, abject failure. GG Chosen Undead.

Dark Souls II was quite the ride. Although the game had its fair share of issues, I had a blast playing it, and a number of its zones now have a place in my list of all-time favorite Souls locations.

One of those areas includes the last piece of DLC, The Crown of the Ivory King, which brings back some of the powerful icy imagery from the Painted World of Ariamis.

Feel the icy chill of these Dark Souls II Crown of the Ivory King DLC screens

Snow isn't a common theme with the Souls series, so it's interesting that the upcoming Dark Souls II DLC Crown of the Ivory King will take place on an icy tundra. This new batch of screens looks suitably dreary...

This guy's better than you at Dark Souls, because he plays with a Rock Band guitar

Fancy yourself quite the Dark Souls player? Bet you can cruise right through that game, patiently parrying and rolling your way to victory after victory. Good for you. Now, do it with a Rock Band controller. It may seem...

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Old Iron King

While Dark Souls II brought me back to that special place that I found with Demon's Souls in many ways, the first DLC pack, Crown of the Sunken King, didn't go far enough with its concepts.

It's really hard to give us a worthwhile add-on with Artorias of the Abyss looming over it, but the second pack, Crown of the Old Iron King, does a much better job of distilling the Souls experience.

Check out new direct-feed Bloodborne gameplay

Last week, I got to go hands-on with Bloodborne. This visually evocative and bleak follow-up to Dark Souls II is a change of pace, but also something that feels and plays very much like the games of the past. While the change...

Bloodborne's health regaining system detailed

A new system for upcoming From Software PS4 title Bloodborne was revealed at gamescom today in a behind-closed-doors meeting. It's called the Regain System, and it lets you recover health after taking a hit.  It's not as easy as it sounds to get your health back, though.

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Sunken King
by Chris Carter

2014 has been very good to me, but Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of the year. Many debates have raged on as to whether or not it's as exceptional as its predecessor (Demon's Souls is better than both), but having played it prior to launch without any hints or guides, I heartily enjoyed getting lost in its labyrinthine tunnels and deadly arenas.

The Crown of the Sunken King DLC expands that goodness by about five to ten hours depending on your skill level, and even if it's one of the less remarkable levels in the game, it's still worth playing.
