Perish The Thought Of Ignoring Gorgeous Roguelike Perish

To begin, I will admit that Perish is not in any way an unheard of quantity in the world of PC games. It's a roguelike-like with random generation and permadeath. Once upon a time nobody did that for 20 years, but now it's every videogame. Perish does, however, sweeten the pot with Dark-Souls-inspired biff-thud-whump-*sounds of your own pitiful whimper*-ing and a gorgeously gloomy aesthetic. Basically,…

Dead Crusade Is Medieval Co-op Meets The Black Death

Dead Crusade is a game that aims to make two great tastes go great together. I mean, crusades have historically ended well, and who could forget all the wonderful times that were had in spite of the Black Death ravaging the European countryside and taking an estimated 75-200 million people? Now, while Dead Crusade uses that insidious murder plague as a backdrop for co-op first-or-third-person…

The Serafinowiczer: Dark Souls II Adds Brit Actor

There's a video containing nine minutes of Dark Souls II action just below the break, but if you're anything like me you'll be waiting to play the blasted thing rather than watching every piece of footage that emerges. I skimmed through and can confidently state that ragged cloaks are this season's must have accessory, whether you're beast or barbarian. If you skip to the end…

From Curse To Hearse: Dark Souls II

After 45 seconds of slow build, the new Dark Souls II trailer delivers exactly what I'd hoped for. Vaguely poetic death threats and glimpses of the hideous creatures that will be performing the executions. There's a particularly unpleasant fellow who seems to have the screaming, writhing corpses of the damned instead of a waist. It looks good on him, I have to say, and I…

Prepare To Die Harder: Dark Souls II

When a franchise is resurrected years after its previous instalment, it's only natural to worry that there may be unnecessary changes to a once successful formula. Changes often make me sad, staring at the flickering screen like a melancholy ghost who realises that he no longer belongs in the world. The very term 'reboot' sometimes makes me head for the nearest tunnel of light, my…

Prepare To Die Again: Dark Souls II Announced

The incredibly unfortunate heir to E3's Mountain-Dew-and-Dorito-stained throne just happened, so onward to the inevitable barrage of substance-free announcements. First up, Dark Souls II is a thing. It's official, it's real, etc. Presumably, it's also a videogame, but Namco and From didn't even go that far. So, is it coming to PC? I haven't the foggiest. But given Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition's strong…

Smooth Soul: Dark Souls PC Modded To 60FPS

They said it couldn't be done! Turns out they just didn't want to. From Software's strong-selling but perfunctory PC port of the malevolent Dark Souls was cursed with numerous technical shortcomings at launch, but fans have worked hard to lift its rather pointless limitations. The locked 720p resolution is already a thing of the past, and now the treacly 30 frames per second ceiling has…

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die A Bit Less, Perhaps

In news that will doubtfless prove SHOCKING to that contingent of gamers who believe that playing a highly challenging videogame says something meaningful about what manner of human being they are, the lead dev of notoriously unforgiving and badly-ported RPG Dark Souls claims to be considering adding in an easier mode for those who are put off by its steep challenge.

Prepare To Sigh (In Relief): Dark Souls’ High-Res Mod

I suppose, on some level, beggars can't be choosers. We got our much-requested Dark Souls port, and early reports make it out to be quite the functional purveyor untimely, needlessly brutal death. So basically, exactly what we were all begging for. But - and I must briefly make sure there's not a copy of the game in earshot; otherwise, it'll totally kill me (no, really)…
