Namco Bandai's recent Dark Souls III cheat purge didn't go swimmingly

While the console editions of Dark Souls III have been consistently smooth since launch, the fight against cheaters on PC isn't going so well for Bandai Namco and developer From Software. In a state of constant war, even innocent bysta...   read

Dark Souls III ships three million worldwide, series reaches 13 million

Dark Souls III continues to sell well, no doubt through good word of mouth, and has achieved the "three million shipped worldwide" target for Namco Bandai -- the company has announced. Japan accounts for 500,000 of that number, followe...   read

Dark Souls III told him he could become anything so he became an AC-130

At first I was disappointed that this hacker didn't actually replace their character model with an AC-130 gunship. But it's almost more heartwarming to see how aspirational their quest to become a warplane is within their means, within the...   read

Dark Souls III beaten without rolling, blocking, parrying, or leveling up

The most committed Dark Souls players are always finding new ways to make these games seem as if they're simple affairs. You know, as if they aren't incredibly difficult games. Why else would someone beat Dark Souls II with ...   read

This site lets you plan Dark Souls III character builds

While my most polarizing choices in the Dark Souls III (and most) character creator tends to be between hairstyles (hmm, this is closest in style to my goal, but looks more like a gross hat than hair), apparently some people are equally con...   read

Why didn't anyone tell me Dark Souls III PvP is just extreme prop hunt?

Prop hunt is a hide-and-seek style mini-game that first sprung up in Garry's Mod ages ago. Players of one team are disguised as random, inconspicuous objects and have to hide convincingly in plain sight while another player or team tries to...   read

This player just one-hit KOed one of the toughest Dark Souls III bosses

After three playthroughs I'm fairly comfortable in crowning Dark Souls III as the easiest game in the series, but that doesn't mean it's not tougher than most action titles currently on the market. There were several zones and boss fig...   read

Dark Souls III player escorts a crab so we don't have to

There are murmurs about a lil friendly crab in Dark Soul III potentially leading to some sort of secret. The idea is that if you manage to bring it to the right area, wherever the hell that might be, something cool will happen sort of like...   read

Bandai Namco blames the victim, re-iterates Dark Souls III ban policy

Adding Shrek to Dark Souls III is much more fun than you'd think

People really love Dark Souls III. People ironically seem to love Shrek, the jolly green ogre with a penchant for defending swamps. There just so happens to be a swamp in From Software's latest, so I suppose it was only a matter of time bef...   read

Dark Souls III early game tips

Call me bad, but I actually found Dark Souls III a little harder than Dark Souls II and Bloodborne at first blush. Maybe I was just rusty, but my first few hours with the game were brutal. It took me more tries than I'd care to admit to bea...   read

If you were banned in Dark Souls III, it was probably by accident

Dark Souls III has an interesting ban system. Since online play is crucial to the experience it would suck to have it removed outright, so you're put into a pool with other cheaters/banned players. You can still play, but it's not the same....   read

Well dang, the Dark Souls board game crowdfunded half a million dollars real quick
