Check out 64 Bits' awesome Cuphead-style Dark Souls animation

Cuphead took seemingly forever to come to fruition, but boy, it was worth the wait. A huge part of the game's appeal, and its lengthy development, was its meticulous art style. The beautiful hand-drawn animation, based around the work of vi...

There's going to be a Bloodborne comic

As much as I don't typically go for comics based on games, I'm willing to make an exception for Bloodborne, whether it's fan-created or officially sanctioned. Anything to get me back in this horrific universe. With that in mind, I'm very cu...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

This Dark Souls figure is kind of cute

Crazy armor designs are my favorite staple of the fantasy genre, so of course I had to post about Gecco's upcoming Siegmeyer figure. I haven't played Dark Souls so I can only assume he is a very fat man inside that fat suit of armor. It hon...

Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition is out now on consoles

I was expecting a "complete" re-release for Dark Souls III at retail, but not so soon. Bandai Namco has compiled the core game and its two expansions -- the frigid and somewhat underwhelming Ashes of Ariandel, and the brutal, much more fit...

These iconic Dark Souls rings are real (and not cheap)

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this pair of Dark Souls-inspired rings from Torch Torch. Just like your accursed player character, you too can rock Havel's Ring to increase your maximum equip load and also prevent fall damage with the Si...

Which Souls boss gave you the most hell?

With the final Dark Souls III expansion out and sleep sacrificed to play it, I've been dying a lot lately. And when I'm not repeatedly falling in battle -- for instance: during the tense final seconds of the drawn-out duel with The Ringed C...

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...

Review: Dark Souls III: The Ringed City

Well, it looks like this is it. Although From Software is billing it as the "close of the age of fire," Dark Souls III: The Ringed City could be the last taste of Souls for a long while. It's a journey that's lasted over eight yea...

Dark Souls III's PS4 Pro patch definitely improves the game

That Dark Souls III patch we reported on a few days ago has been put through the ringer by Digital Foundry and the results aren't too surprising. The support for PS4 Pro has given the game better performance, even if it still isn't perfect....

These are the new PvP arenas for Dark Souls III

Even if you aren't keen on the idea of more player-versus-player arenas in Dark Souls III, let this pair of videos serve as a reminder that, oh yeah, the second and final DLC for the game isn't far off. The Ringed City is out on March 28, a...

Dark Souls III will also have a Design Works art book

The intricate and grotesquely beautiful Dark Souls games make for some damn fine art books. Following the path paved by Dark Souls and Dark Souls II, there will in fact be a Design Works book for Dark Souls III, and knowing some of the effe...

It's time to play Bloodborne again

Time to scrape the rusty blood off your saw cleaver, primp up your impossibly cool Victorian coat, and hunt some beasts. Return to Yharnam, a mass-community Bloodborne event scheduled to begin March 10, is encouraging fans to take to up the...
