Phil Spencer has played Elden Ring and calls it FromSoftware’s “most ambitious”

Oh, Elden Ring. I thought maybe you'd been a fever dream. FromSoftware partnering with Game Of Thrones man George R.R. Martin to make an action RPG? Couldn't be. Oh but it is real, it's still in development, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer seems to be impressed after playing quite a bit of it. Come on, let's speculate over the table scraps, shall we?

Sekiro adds new outfits and boss rush mode in free update

For so long has Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's One-armed Wolf been running and jumping around in the same drab clothes, it's about time he jazzed up his wardrobe. In the new free update that dropped yesterday, From Software have done exactly that, and added three new outfits. They're not just giving them to you that easy, though. To unlock two of them, players will need…

These modders are building a “direct sequel” to Dark Souls

There's nothing quite like the first time you play Dark Souls. Sure, you can go back with new builds, try a new weapon or go for a no-hit run, but you'll never quite recapture the feeling of not knowing what's around the next corner. That's why a group of modders have decided to go and make their own Dark Souls "sequel", Nightfall, offering a whole…

Demon’s Souls remaster is coming to PC too, surprise! Update: OR NOT?

Update: Sony have now pulled the trailer and told Kotaku that Demon's Souls is in fact not coming to PC and other consoles. "Human error" is to blame for that information being in the trailer, they say. WELP.Well, we've not heard anything new about the rumoured Bloodborne PC port I ache for, but tonight's PlayStation 5 showcase did bring one FromSoftware surprise for us: the…

Sekiro is getting a free update this October, adding new outfits and a boss rush

Surprise! FromSoftware's most recent very difficult action game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is getting a big free update on October 29th. Because of who I am as a person, the immediate thing I'm drawn to in said update is the fact that there are some cool new outfits for everyone's favourite Shinobi. But there are two other very exciting things on the way, too -…

Mow down bosses with a boomstick in this Dark Souls 3 mod

What was your last build in Dark Souls 3? I'm partial to axes myself, though I've had a lot of success in moving to whopping huge greatswords as of late. For my next run, though, I think I'm gonna try something new - blapping my way through Lothric with a sawn-off, filling every undead goon on the walls with buckshot thanks to this ridiculous new…

This mod turns Dark Souls into a roguelike

It's easy to overemphasise the importance of difficulty to Dark Souls, but I'd still argue it's integral. From Software's gruelling RPGs do loads else that's cool, but part of the appeal is bound up with the same satisfaction you get from climbing a mountain. You want that tension, and the blessed relief of finally beating a boss after chucking yourself betwixt its jaws for the…

Bloodborne is coming to PC, rumours claim

Over the weekend, Twitter's rumour mill started spinning up again, as multiple accounts posted all sorts of teasery info about Bloodborne potentially getting PC and PlayStation 5 ports. None of this is official, of course, though it's kind of reminiscent of when similar rumours started going around about PlayStation exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn earlier this year - and that's coming out on PC this summer.…

You can play Sekiro in multiplayer using this new mod

Unlike its Souls siblings, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has no multiplayer. No wrong'uns invading your game to murder you, no friends helping you or hanging out. If you'd like that, good news: a new mod is out, adding multiplayer in both cooperative and antagonistic flavours. It's an impressive achievement, even if the mod's creator does warn it might be a little rough. It's nice to…

Check out three Sekiro players attempting modded co-op

So I've not actually played Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It's not strictly because there's no co-op. Given that I've played all three Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, I suppose it's not not because there's no co-op either. Behold! Modders have come to my rescue. Here are three players attempting to fight through a section all playing as the One-Armed Wolf.

Feature: Modern world

The modders creating accessibility modes for notoriously difficult games

Whether or not famously difficult games should have an optional easy mode has long been a point of contention. But many already do, albeit unofficially, thanks to modders taking things into their own hands. Take the fella who goes by "n00bplatformer", for example. He recently created an “Assist Mode” for run 'n’ gun action game Cuphead. It makes simple tweaks to some of the game’s…

Feature: The deadliest dance of all

Have you played… Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice?

Rarely have I felt so powerful as I did the second time I defeated Lady Butterfly in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. During my first playthrough, Lady Butterfly was the boss that forced me to really learn how to play the game, to spend time internalising all the movements and steps of the intricate dance of metal and death that makes the game what it is.…

Modder Superior – Dark Souls Trilogy Remixed

Dark Souls modders are forged in the flames of adversity. While mostly limited to technical improvements (such as Durante's fixes for the wonky original PC port) and small texture packs, the past few years have brought about a whole new genre of Souls mods for all three games. While limited in what can be added to the trilogy (though breakthroughs are being made on that…

Modders have created Dark Souls’ first custom map – and it’s from Half-Life

Like the chosen undead they follow, there are few walls in the Dark Souls modding scene that can't be broken without persistence. Since the original PC release was salvaged by stubborn fans, Dark Souls's modding community has spent years breaking a game that defies being broken. For the longest time, though, getting custom level geometry was a boss beyond modders' might. But once more, through…

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

These videogame cats are good cats

It’s International Cat Day! You know, one of those days reportedly invented by a charity, spread by the internet without question, and propagated by the scoundrel media because quite simply we are desperate to post pictures of cats, big cats, fluffy cats, kitten cats, any cat, any excuse for any cat, please, just let me have this day, please, I don't care if it's a…

Metal Wolf Chaos XD puts the American President into a mech suit

I've just come across the most recent fact to have ruined my day, and I'm here to share it with you: Did you know that the year 2004 - a time which exists in my mind as a temporal island that I was just walking through about three minutes ago - actually took place 15 years ago? It's true, because I was able to do…

Sekiro’s new Boss Rush mod lets you scrap with any boss, any time

A new mod for From Software's slasher lets you cut straight to the point. Swords, yeah?I haven't gotten around to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice myself (it's the lack of a fashion endgame, I'm afraid). But I'm told it has some absolutely killer fights, what with all those stylish parries and flying head kicks. The sort of combat I imagine you'd want to just dive back…
