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

I imagine the Venn diagram of people who play Dark Souls and people interested in board games has a fairly significant overlap. So of course Steamforged Games' Dark Souls board game was always destined to make a bunch of mone...   read

Where was this scene in Dark Souls III?

So, Dark Souls III, guys! Pretty dang good. Not enough creepy trees (Cursed Greatwood was such a creepy boss, loved it), but still dang good. And it's selling like fire right now. I played it on Xbox One last month by hacking Japan/buy...   read

This wily Dark Souls III player has embraced his inner Patches
