If you've been craving jolly cooperation in the original Dark Souls, now is the time to play

One of the best parts of a Dark Souls game is the social element. Reading messages scrawled by possibly helpful, possibly malicious players, taking on bosses with a co-op buddy, and of course, invading and repelling invaders. Sadly, like ev...   read

Dark Souls III's patches continue to be as mysterious as the game itself

Almost two months have passed since Dark Souls III kicked all of our asses. I'm waiting for the two promised DLCs before jumping in with the PC version (I played the Japanese Xbox One version and had to play offline), but I've bee...   read

Imagine being the first guy in the hole

An intrepid young Dark Souls III player figured out a way to trap invading players by goading them into a deep hole with a door at the bottom that they can't open. You can watch the evolution of the trap above in, uh, its dank video editin...   read

This Dark Souls fan comic is cooler than the real thing

When I got to that incredible panel up there, I knew I had to share this Dark Souls III webcomic. It's called In Her Service and you ought to look it over even if you aren't all that familiar with the game's characters. It's only seven page...   read

Good lord, Dark Souls board game closes near $5.5 million

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

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

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

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

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
