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...   read

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...   read

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....   read

Bloodborne's Lady Maria is getting a $600 Japan-exclusive statue

Even if she's a character from the lone DLC for Bloodborne, Lady Maria pops up quite a bit in discussions and random artwork for the game. She's recognizable, is what I'm saying, and is probably easier to craft into a statue than a giant li...   read

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...   read

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...   read

Bloodborne doesn't get much of a boost from the PS4 Pro's boost mode

When it comes to the PS4 Pro's upcoming "Boost Mode" that's now in beta testing, there's only one genre I really care about in terms of any sort of performance enhancement -- action games. If you can make a mascot platformer slightly more e...   read

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2016 goes to...

There's nothing quite like Dark Souls. It's a series that intrigues and ensnares, temping its players to persevere against harsh odds to see the next captivating set design or beautifully vile boss. At times, these games teeter over the edg...   read

You can never have enough Dark Souls prints

We've featured video game prints from Cook & Becker several times before, and when I think of specific series that lend themselves particularly well to the wall treatment, Dark Souls ranks up there. There's a new line of prints on sale ...   read

Rumour: Dark Souls III may be heading to the Nintendo Switch

When it was first revealed that From Software would be working on producing titles for Nintendo's upcoming console -- the Nintendo Switch -- my mind raced. Immediately, I thought of the possibility of playing games like Dark Souls whil...   read

Here's how to access the new Dark Souls III DLC

One question I get pretty often whenever a new DLC for Souls launches is "how do you access it?"In true Souls form, you don't really go through a traditional menu. Instead, the player either has to follow vague clues or find ...   read

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

Hidetaka Miyazaki feels 'unworthy' of Dark Souls/Zelda comparisons

Another studio could remaster Demon's Souls, says From Software

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
