PSA: Dark Souls III unlocks on Steam this evening

Used to be a game coming out April 12 meant you get it on April 12, perhaps by going to the local video game repository after work and buying it. Before work if you're afraid of limited stock. But thanks to the wondrous advances of "on-line...

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

The hyped up Dark Souls mystery announcement today was...clothing

Yesterday, Namco Bandai tweeted out an ominous "big announcement" reveal for Dark Souls. Seemingly realizing that maybe raising expectations isn't a great thing to do, it then tweeted "don't worry, it's not about the game." Right after ever...

This Dark Souls tweet perfectly sums up my feelings about Dark Souls III

I'd say I'm pretty much a Dark Souls fanboy at this point. I've played each game in the series long enough to earn all four platinum trophies, and then I kept on playing them for a long time afterwards. And yet, with Dark Souls III on the h...

Dark Souls III gets a grainy grindhouse VHS trailer
