Japan is getting a sweet Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set

If you were envious of Europe's Dark Souls trilogy vinyl set, you might explode when you see what's on the horizon in Japan. (Thankfully, I'm still glowing from today's news so I'm not too bothered.) Bandai Namco is putting together a Dark ...

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...

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...

The final Dark Souls III DLC is called 'The Ringed City'

Dark Souls III didn't have the strongest showing for its first DLC, but it had its moments. The Ringed City on the other hand, the second and final add-on (possibly ever, for Souls), looks like it isn't messing around. With no men...

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...

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...

The next Dark Souls III patch tinkers with the poise stat

[Image by Steam user MirkoW] I'm not so sure Dark Souls III players will ever see a satisfying conclusion to the game's ongoing and still-disappointing poise stat saga, but there is a curious new chapter. With the next patch dropping on Fri...

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...

Maybe don't watch this entire Dark Souls III DLC trailer

You might already be down for Ashes of Ariandel, the first of two add-ons coming to Dark Souls III. If that's the case, I'd say watch some -- but not all! -- of this trailer. It's made up of a handful of largely unedited encounters in the ...

 
Dark Souls 3 hole photo

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...

Play Dark Souls III in first-person

Modder Zulliethewitch has made mods for both Dark Souls and Dark Souls II that allow you to play the game in a first-person point of view (like From Software's original King's Field) and now the cycle is complete with Dark Souls 3: First P...

This site lets you plan Dark Souls III character builds

While my most polarizing choices in the Dark Souls III (and most) character creator tends to be between hairstyles (hmm, this is closest in style to my goal, but looks more like a gross hat than hair), apparently some people are equally con...

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...

Dark Souls III gets the Mythbusters treatment

YouTuber DefendTheHouse is at it again in the test lab. This time, Dark Souls III is on the slab. Can you parry giant pots back at those saw guys in the Undead Settlement? Can Mimics be tamed? Can a Young White Branch work as well as a...

This artwork of Dark Souls III's best boss fight is killer

The talented Ömer Tunç has a pretty amazing collection of his works over at ArtStation, but one in particular really stood out to me. As my favorite fight in Dark Souls III by far, the illustration below made me just want to co-...

 
Fun with Dark Souls 3 photo

Praise the...run!

It's like a got-dang Benny Hill routine. Dark Souls III is fun. Here's the original video. Much less funny because comedy is all about. Timing. To make up for it, here's an excellent video of some poor sucker getting caught in well-planne...

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...
