Man beats Dark Souls without getting hit, immediately tries again

Oh yeah, I was on Sony's stream talking about 'What Remains of Edith Finch?'

PlayStation Experience was only three weeks ago? Why does it feel like it was a year ago? "Because you had to scrape together a bunch of last-minute jobs to make Christmas money like a Dad working overtime?" you say? You're correct! Questio...

Until Dawn's Twitch archive blocking was 'unintentional'

It was odd, to say the least, to see Sony directly blocking Until Dawn archiving on Twitch, but according to the publisher, it was a mixup. I reached out to Sony, who responded with the following note: "We are currently working on a fi...

What's your take on Twitch Plays Dark Souls, and its shift to cheating?

When Twitch Plays Dark Souls managed to get to the first boss of the game, there was quite the commotion. Sadly, it seems as if they just couldn't manage it amidst all the chaos, and thus, they decided to cheat. How did they cheat, exactly?...
