Dark Souls III: The Ringed City DLC review: Blue moon

Functioning as a grand send off of the Dark Souls series, The Ringed City is the final DLC for Dark Souls III, and probably the last DLC for the series, ever. Dark Souls is being retired according the game’s director, Hidetaka Miyazaki. As such, the DLC has the job of delivering the fitting send-off the acclaimed series deserves. Like Ashes of Ariandel, The Ringed City is not for the faint o...[Read More]

People are coming up with interesting ways to play Dark Souls III

Even though the gaming community has lately been consumed by swashbuckling adventurers and demon’s populating Mars, there are still many people playing through the brutal RPG juggernaut Dark Souls III. I am yet to even touch it myself, but I plan to rectify that very soon as by all accounts it sounds amazing.

Dark Souls III should have an easier mode

Breathe deeply, hold in your “git guds” and “fuck yous” until the end of the article, for I know I’m treading on shaky shaky ground with this piece. Yes, I’m about to tell you why I think Dark Souls III should have an easier setting available. Notice the words easier and available, they are all too important for this argument.

How does Dark Souls III compare to the original?

– Kyle Tander To start things off let me just admit that I’m not much of a Dark Souls veteran. Until recently I had only ever played the first Dark Souls, but maybe that’s the way it should be. I’ve heard a lot of people say that the third is much more of a sequel to the original than Dark Souls II ever was. Now let’s talk about the differences between the two. You’re...[Read More]

Dark Souls III review: Deadja Vu

I’m slowly walking through a corpse-strewn village, clutching a sword tightly, ready to swing, and holding my shield high. I’m ready for battle, and gaze intently towards the doorway ahead, expecting an attack from within. It’s dark, there’s no sign of life, and even as I enter the gloom, I see no foes.

Eli Roth directed a Dark Souls III trailer and it’s pretty weird

  Eli Roth, known for his gruesome horror flicks such as Hostel, has directed an animated trailer for the upcoming Dark Souls III titled “The Witches”.

First 14 minutes of Dark Souls III footage released, escalates quickly

  True to its brutal opening cinematic, Dark Souls III seems to have a pretty brutal introductory area. Well, not immediately, but it gets there. In fact one could call bullshit on this being a Souls starting area as the player isn’t dying repeatedly and being beaten into submission. But once they arrive to the first boss, things sure escalate quickly. This footage also shows how much D...[Read More]
