How Metal Wolf Chaos is coming to PC after 14 years

“By the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, freedom was dead in America.” This is the opening line of Metal Wolf Chaos. But before the player can decide whether or not such a statement was prophetic back when this bullet-spraying action game came out 14 years ago, the 47th President of the United States, a man called Michael Wilson, erupts from the…

Metal Wolf Chaos XD plops the US president back into a mech

I'd never heard of Metal Wolf Chaos before today, which was why I raised an eyebrow at the claim this press release makes about it being "From Software’s legendary mech shooter" which was "previously released in 2004 as an Xbox exclusive only in Japan". To pinch some words from RPS news boy Dominic Tarason, the story stars "an American president single-handedly thwarting a coup with…

Devolver Digital tease Metal Wolf Chaos’s possible return

FromSoftware's Metal Wolf Chaos is a true game of legend. Under the cold, metallic shell of an Armored Core-esque mech shooter beat a heart of pure stars, stripes and apple pie. Starring an American president single-handedly thwarting a coup with his personal mech-suit, it was so American that not even America could handle it, and never left Japan despite being exclusive to the US-centric Xbox.…

‘I wish they had good anti-cheat,’ says Dark Souls hacker

Pain and purgatory simulator Dark Souls: Remastered was released a couple of weeks ago, and within hours it was already the playground of a well-known hacker. Malcolm Reynolds, who is known to players from his exploits in other Dark Souls games, was invading players and throwing an accursed, hacked fireball at them, which inflicts diseases and a curse that makes the game even more difficult.…

Dark Souls: Remastered is out now – and it’s already got an infamous hacker

Crack open a nice cold soul, fans of permanently holding up a shield while you walk. Dark Souls: Remastered has been released on Steam today, a day earlier than we’d believed. The original Prepare to Die Edition was pulled from sale two weeks ago, so if you didn’t buy it then, this is now your only PC doorway to popular resort town Undead Burg. The…

It’s the final day to buy Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition

The PC's original 'Prepare To Die' edition of Dark Souls will be removed from sale on STeam tomorrow, ahead of the launch of the mildly fancier Remastered edition, so buy now if you want it for posterity. Folks who own Prepare To Die will get a 50% discount on Remastered, but that'll still work out more expensive, so the reason to buy now would be…

Dark Souls: Remastered is half-price for original owners

Folks who have the original Dark Souls on Steam will be offered a 50% discount on the upcoming Dark Souls: Remastered, Bandai Namco confirmed today. The revisions and additions in the Remastered edition aren't huge but if you fancy returning to a fancier Lordran, that beats paying full price. Remastered will be the only way to buy Dark Souls on PC, as Bamco also announced…

Have You Played… Dark Souls 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Dark Souls > Bloodborne > Dark Souls 3 > Demon's Souls > Dark Souls 2. But if you like the rest, you should still play number 2. It's good. Being good just isn't quite enough when you're born into a family of geniuses.

Up-res the sun! Dark Souls: Remastered prepares to live

Whatever Dark Souls maestros From Software have planned for their next game proper is an only slightly-teased mystery, but here's some fine news to make our own souls ache less during that wait. Dark Souls, the original and greatest in the series (Bloodborne excepted) and also one of the best PC games ever, sez us, is getting a remastered edition. Update: confirmed for PC on…

New From Software game – Bloodborne 2 , Dark Souls 4 or Shadow Tower?

A bone, a ratchet, a bloody rope, parchment - these are the clues in this short teaser-trailer for the next project from Dark Souls studio From Software. What do they mean? Oh, probably a metaphor for death and the afterlife - it usually is. In terms of what game could it be, well, knee-jerk reactions leaned towards Bloodborne 2 (for my money it's From's finest,…

In their haste to make “soulslikes”, devs have forgotten what makes Dark Souls unique – its level design

I finally completed Dark Souls III [official site] last week, a world that I have been dipping in and out of between bouts of listlessness since its release in April last year. It didn’t grip me like the first revered Dark Souls, but it still made me sad to know it was all over. Where could I go now for my Souls fix? The answer,…

Dark Souls 3 now concluded in The Ringed City

Dark Souls has now concluded. Dark Souls 3 [official site] today launched its second expansion, The Ringed City. Barring a secret change of heart from the developers, this is the final expansion for the final Dark Souls game. The Ringed City delves into a lost city at the crumpled edges of the world to find... ah, you don't want me to tell you.

Dark Souls 3 prepares for the end in Ringed City trailer

This is nearly the end, one of my few friends, nearly the end. Tuesday will bring the launch of The Ringed City, the final DLC for Dark Souls 3 [official site], the final Dark Souls game. I can forgive publishers Bandai Namco for slinging out The Ringed City's launch trailer four days early because heck, what a run it's been. In a series about the…

Now is a good time to return to Dark Souls 2

If you fancy going back through all Dark Souls before the series wraps up with the final DLC in March, now's a great time to return to Dark Souls 2 [official site]. Today sees the start of Return to Drangleic, an unofficial community-run event to draw players back and revitalise multiplayer. Souls just isn't the same without online invasions, summonings, ghosts, and messages bringing life…

Don’t watch this Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City trailer

Bandai Namco have released a new trailer for the final Dark Souls 3 [official site] DLC, The Ringed City, and I don't think you should watch it. It combines a load of gameplay clips showing locations, enemies, bosses, and other things that would surely be a lot more fun to discover yourself in-game. This is the end, my friend. The very last bit of Dark…

The Ringed City venture into a lost city at the end of the world, through a mish-mash of merged lands, with new enemies, new bosses, and at least one ↑ fancy egg. Here,…

Why Dark Souls 3’s Aldrich is 2016’s best boss

Warning! There are plentiful spoilers ahead for all Dark Souls games.] You'll meet his acolytes first – giggling ogresses in matted, sagging corsets, their belts jingling with torture implements, and red-cloaked porters who shoulder cages full of chopped-up bone and flesh. Deep in Undead Settlement – an area you'll reach, in a portentous reversal of a key moment from the original Dark Souls, when two…

Dark Souls 3 – Ashes Of Ariandel review

Ashes of Arandiel is the first of two DLCs for Dark Souls III [official site], making it quite possibly the penultimate Souls adventure. We sent intrepid Robert Zak into the cold wastes of the Painted World of Ariandel to see how well it lives up to the mighty legacy of the series, and he returned a short time later stricken with frostbite. And wolfbites. Here's…

Best Dark Souls 3 Mods

Unless you've been hiding under a rock lizard for the past several months, you'll know the wonderfully twisted and challenging action role-player Dark Souls returned to our PC telly boxes earlier this year. With series director Hidetaka Miyazaki reinstated at the (knight) helm, the third installment isn't necessarily the best but is probably the most realised, and like its forerunners - and console cousins Demon's…

Along with a new hunk of singleplayer story, Ashes of Ariandel will add a bit to multiplayer too. Here, have a peek in this new trailer, which includes some serious-looking 3v3 arena action:
