Ico showed Bloodborne's Hidetaka Miyazaki the 'possibilities of the medium'

Simon Parkin got a rare interview with From Software president, Demon's Souls and Bloodborne creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and it is fascinating stuff, charting Miyazaki's dramatic career change at age 29 (and equally dramatic 80...

Love 'em or hate 'em, this is the generation of remakes. It seems as if remasters of the previous generation pop up more frequently than actual new games, but if said remasters actually end up funding new games rather than the coffers of executives, that can be a good thing.

The newest remake comes by way of From Software in the form of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for a variety of different platforms. Unsurprisingly, it holds up as the core experience is fantastic, but it's really hard to suggest buying Scholar unless you haven't played the original in any shape or form.

One simple trick to help you kill Bloodborne invaders

Getting invaded sucks. Chances are, you're going to die. There's a reason you're being invaded. The other player is confident in their ability to slaughter you. They are probably nigh impervious to damage and carrying some s...

Can't find anyone for co-op in Bloodborne? Try resetting the game

After struggling to find a co-op partner for a deceptively tricky magic-slinging boss in Bloodborne last week, I started to browse for answers, and it seems like the PlayStation 4's rest mode -- the thing that lets you suspen...

How to locate the final hidden boss in Bloodborne, and achieve the true ending photo
How to locate the final hidden boss in Bloodborne, and achieve the true ending
by Chris Carter

It's been quite a week since I first obtained Bloodborne. I'm currently on my fourth playthrough and I'm finding out that I missed quite a bit on my first run. Specifically, there's multiple endings, one of which involves a cryptic process to even see the actual final boss. It took me over 100 hours to piece it together.

I strongly suggest playing the game the way you want to the first time through, and only resort to this guide if you really are stuck and want to see the extra ending. If you're so inclined, you'll also find a breakdown of all three known endings below with spoilers.

[Update: I've located the hidden boss, with instructions below.]

Bloodborne is officially out, and I've already seen a lot of discussions brewing about the game. Some sentiments are positive, some are negative, but a great deal of people are just confused.

Although I have a quick tips guide to help you start out, a lot of readers and peers have been asking me about some of the game's harder-to-find optional bosses. I spent the day recording the processes involved in finding them, and you can see the results for most of them below.

Review: Bloodborne photo
Review: Bloodborne
by Chris Carter

Hidetaka Miyazaki created a legacy with Demon's Souls. With three Armored Core games under his belt at From Software, Miyazaki dared to capture the spirit of the King's Field series for a new era, and thus the Souls series was born. His philosophy of "less is more" served as a driving force for the franchise's allure, and his influences permeate throughout.

In just six years we've seen four total games using the formula, and despite taking a step back for Dark Souls II, Miyazaki returns to the driver's seat with Bloodborne.
