For the last month, I’ve been livestreaming my playthrough of The Surge on Kotaku’s Twitch channel, defeating one boss a week. Last night, I completed the game. While it was exciting at first, I can now officially confirm that The Surge is not very good.
Japanese toy company Gecco is releasing this Dark Souls statue as an exclusive for folks attending San Diego Comic Con. It’ll be sold for $299.
Today on Highlight Reel we have Shovel Souls, perfect grenade tosses, For Honor dodges and much more!
The Surge is a futuristic action game in the vein of Dark Souls that pits players against a host of robots and power-suit-wearing goons. It’s fun to bash on zombies but even better to cut their limbs off to steal their loot.
Over the decades, there have been so many great action games. But which one do people in Japan like best? This poll might shed light on that question.
Nioh is an astonishing game with fast samurai action. Ninja tools, magic spells, and a variety of weapons should have made for fun player versus player battles. Unfortunately, sloppy connections and overpowered builds drag down the experience.
Black Iron Tarkus is one of the most badass characters in Dark Souls, but how would he fare in the modern dating world? We signed him up to Tinder to find out — it would be his toughest challenge to date.
Every Dark Souls game is actually two games: 1) the game itself and 2) an ongoing competition to beat it with every completely unsuited object known to man, up to and including the kitchen sink. Honestly, though, I think a sink would make for a more intuitive controller than bananas.
It took Ska Studios just over a year to get its side-scrolling action game onto the Vita, but the wait was worth it. Salt and Sanctuary takes the best of Metroidvania-style games and Souls-likes and condenses it into the ideal portable experience.
No word if these Dark Souls rings raise max equipment burden or decrease fall damage, but they do look nice!
This is what it looks like when a Dark Souls 3 gangsquad double-doors you to death.
The Ringed City offers one final hurrah for Dark Souls 3. The most stunning moment involves a surprising boss fight with a creative twist.
Dark Souls 3's final DLC, The Ringed City, seeks to close the curtain on the series. With some of the best environments in the series and imaginative boss fights, it feels like a fitting end. Even as I shed no tears at the passing.
This Dark Souls cosplay by Cosarmor & Props won top prize at the Emerald City Comic Con earlier this month with this Dragon Slayer Ornstein ensemble, and for good reason: it’s practically an actual suit of armour.
On first glance, Nioh does not seem remarkable. A generic looking action RPG in the vein of Dark Souls, Nioh seems more like a lost Playstation 2 curiosity than a killer AAA exclusive. Ignoring it would be a terrible mistake though. Nioh is one of the best action titles in years, packed with exciting combat and…
Nioh pits the player agains a variety of foes. Deadly yokai and horrifying beasts rage about the countryside eager for blood. The boss fights are often grand battles against monumental foes but the best are surprisingly subdued.
Dark Souls III takes players to the end of the world with The Ringed City DLC, arriving March 28 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Players will chase after Slave Knight Gael as he seeks the Dark Soul of Humanity. Sounds like a picnic!
If you visualize the depth buffer of a game (stay with me), you can make it look like the game is running in black & white, ala Limbo.
One of Dark Souls 3's most difficult bosses has been defeated in dizzying self challenge. The accomplishment is full of unbelievable parries and stripping.
