7 things I'd like brought back from when I was a kid...

When I was a kid I was into things. Things that gave me that rare combination of joy and fuzziness I've only since felt for women and tandoori chicken with mint chutney. Some of these things were games and some were literature. Some were ac...

Here's how to access Dark Souls III's The Ringed City DLC

Unlike the Ashes of Ariandel DLC access method, Dark Souls III's The Ringed City is foolproof. Instead of relying on an NPC appearing at a specific area, you merely need to touch one of two bonfires to enter the new zone. Yep, one of t...
