Feature: Something fishy going on

Why Fountainhead Palace is Sekiro’s best level

It’s impossible not to be struck by the sheer aesthetic splendour of Fountainhead Palace. The combination of the vivid red of its temple architecture, the turquoise of its lake, and the pale pink of its swirling cherry blossoms. It’s perhaps the most memorable location in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for this reason alone, but if we dive below the surface, we find more subtle arguments…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Elden Ring release date, trailer, everything we know

Elden Ring is a collaboration between From Software and George R.R. Martin and aside from the single trailer, there is very little to go on. Bandai Namco will be publishing the game, much like they did the Dark Souls games, and from what we have seen of the trailer, it certainly fits the mold of a Dark Souls like game. So to that end, we will…

Feature: I lordRAN out of good puns already

What might the two biggest trolls in fantasy be cooking up with Elden Ring?

I once spent an entire week in a $6 Saigon hotel room doing basically nothing but eating Subway and reading dodgy pirate copies of the Game Of Thrones books -- we're talking copies where the text would occasionally bleed into the spine and some of the maps were upside down -- and it was the best. When I got back home, I played Dark Souls,…

From Software and George R. R. Martin’s RPG Elden Ring leaked

We are truly in E3 times, as evidenced by the fact that this ship is springing new leaks faster than any crew could patch ‘em. Last night was the turn of Bandai Namco, with the reveal of that previously rumoured From Software/George R. R. Martin joint washing onto deck early. According to a now-pulled, but previously publicly accessible webpage spotted by Gematsu it'll be called…

The Japanese myths and woodblock art behind Sekiro’s creatures

Fantastic creatures are as important to Sekiro as its samurai and shinobi. For every deftly fought duel against a venerable warrior there’s a slug-fest with a headless ape that hurls toxic poo. It’s a fine balance between the real and the romantic. Whereas Dark Souls had everything to do with “lore”, Sekiro more delicately pulls from folklore. Lordran is almost purely imaginative, but Sekiro’s Ashina…

Sekiro 1.04 patch notes – what was introduced in the latest update

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's  significant update didn't quite go to plan, but the latest hot-fix has amended this error. It is the only change to come in the latest update, but the previous version had some major adjustments to balance - mostly in your favour, and some bug fixes. As a result, some of your abilities are far more powerful as a result of the…

Sekiro ending – getting all of Sekiro’s endings

Since Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has multiple endings, and in typical From Software fashion, there are a couple of points of no return that lock you into certain endings. If you do not want to see what the ending are for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, do not read on as this will give spoilers on how to achieve each ending. You have been warned. [block id="663105"…

Sekiro mask locations – treasure carp locations

It's no secret that you can hunt the fish for treasure carp scales, but there is an item that's found at various vendors that upon completing them will give you the ability to upgrade your attack power with just skill points. The steps to obtain said item are a little obtuse, so we'll be going over all of the steps required to get the cherished…

Sekiro Owl (Father) – how to find and defeat the hidden boss

Through some rather specific things you need to do in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you can unlock a secret boss fight. Though you may have overcome Owl in the present, you've not fought against him while he's in his prime, in the flaming room where you fought Lady Butterfly much earlier in the game. It's a rather difficult fight and we aim to guide you…

Sekiro tames the Blazing Bull, pumps up that arm

A wee Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice patch crept in overnight, coming to fix a few bugs and also rejiggle balance a bit. One early-game roadblock boss for some, the Blazing Bull, is a touch weaker. Certain roboarm weapons are improved with new Spirit Emblem casting costs too, though some skills are toned down. If you've got stuck in a ninjarut, relying on the same ol'…

Sekiro gourd seeds – gourd seed locations, upgrading the healing gourd

That healing gourd in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice initially doesn't heal for much does it? Well you can upgrade your gourd by finding seeds in the world. On top of that, Sekiro also has a couple of different gourds that can help with certain status ailments.

Overthinking Games: an armful of surprises in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

While I was playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, I thought out loud, “Man, do I have a lot of questions about surgery in feudal Japan.” Less about how you operate on a man so that he wakes up and suddenly finds himself with a prosthetic, having remained peacefully unconscious throughout the entire procedure, and more about how feasible the shinobi prosthetic in Sekiro really is.…

Sekiro True Corrupted Monk – how to defeat all three phases

If you didn't side with Great Shinobi Owl, breaking the ninja code in the pivotal choice moment in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, then the next area you unlock after defeating him is the beautiful Fountainhead Palace. But wait, who's this that's come to greet us at the door. Why it's that pesky monk from Mibu Village again, only this time she seems, real? Turns out…

Sekiro Corrupted Monk – how to defeat her apparition

You've made your way through Mibu Village in Sekiro; Shadows Die Twice, and it's clear that there is something very wrong with the townsfolk. They almost seem zombie-like and seem to be protecting something of incredible value. Like the monkeys before, one of their own is the last line of defence, which fades into view as you approach a cave. This Corrupted Monk's apparition has…

Sekiro Demon of Hatred – finding and defeating a hidden boss

Some may find that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was missing a large flaming beast that can one-shot kill players without a second thought. That sounds like an appropriately Souls-like boss doesn't it? Well if you are one of those who missed those kinds of despair-filled fights, don't worry; there's a boss fight that might just be for you. [block id="663105" title="Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice guide…

Sekiro Guardian Ape – how to defeat it twice

During your search for a flower for Lord Kuro in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you'll venture into a forest that is populated with monkeys. A much larger ape sits in a lake, guarding the flower, and minding his own business.
