Review: Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel

Souls DLC is a risk by design. The core games are crafted around a multitude of different concepts bound by a cohesive theme that just comes together by the time you reach the finish line. So by adding on extra optional quests months down t...   read

Peek at Dark Souls III's upcoming three-on-three PvP

Some of my fondest memories in Dark Souls III were made while mucking about as a member of the Mound Makers, the game's wild-card, "When are they going to betray me?" covenant. I was a particularly friendly Mound Maker, and that always see...   read

Namco Bandai teases a 'major' Dark Souls III announcement next week

Dark Souls III director on poise stat: 'This isn't something we are proud of'

The saga of the poise stat in Dark Souls III was pretty amazing. First, fans had no idea what it did, and much to their chagrin, From Software maintained a cheeky "it's a secret!" stance on it. Eventually though someone did seemingly f...   read

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
