The Dark Souls franchise is all about getting very strong and wielding a big weapon. A new mod allows you to become the strongest and wield the biggest weapons. The upcoming “Forces of Annihilation” lets you play as the bosses of Dark Souls 3.
While we wait for a Battle for Middle Earth remake, an alternative might be Tales of Middle Earth, a mod that transforms Age of Empires II into a Lord of the Rings game.
Uncharted 4 obviously features Nathan Drake getting pulled back into the adventuring lifestyle (that’s, uh, the game), but the opening is a smattering of domestic moments with his wife Elena that sell that game’s emotional beats. It’s even better in first person.
Dark Souls has a reputation as a dark fantasy game where women fused to demons, cannibal executioners, and zombified humans make their home. But it looks a little more like a fun place if you pump the brightness and change some of the lighting effects.
Earlier this year, a game called OpenSC2K was released on GitHub, claiming to be a free, open source version of Maxis’ classic. Turns out it wasn’t as open source as it could have been, though, because EA have had the game removed from the platform.
Meet possibly the best and worst way to play DOOM.
With Doom Fetito, one game developer is taking Argentinian women’s fight for abortion rights into a new arena: the world of Doom mods.
The Grand Theft Auto games’ massive cities are separate from one another. You can’t fly west from the Florida-based Vice City to the LA-inspired Los Santos. But one fan and his small team of modders are trying to make this possible, in GTA: San Andreas.
The last time we spoke to Nick Pearce, he was flying on a high: The Forgotten City, a mod that he’d spent more than 1700 hours building, had just won an Australian Writers’ Guild award.

Dark Souls modder Zullie the Witch has been messing around with the game and got something cool up and running: the ability to swap the player’s model with other characters and enemies. The best of them being a skeleton.
Here is a very good mod that takes the gruff military characters from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and replaces them with the cast of the Neptunia JRPG series. Even in the singleplayer campaign, even in zombies mode.
This pair of mods, with Mario replacing Link and Bowser replacing a Hinox, brings one of Nintendo’s oldest battles to one of its newest classics.
Last December, a 22-year old modder who calls himself Ted52 purged the Steam forums for his Hearts of Iron IV mod, Millennium Dawn. Steam’s infrastructure made it difficult to remove unsavory threads individually, and he tells me he has more control of things over at his Discord channel, where he can eliminate any…
Dark Souls not dark enough for you? Try this.
Even without mods, Grand Theft Auto V is a violent game. You can run over human beings and animals, shoot people with powerful long range rifles, burn police officers alive with molotovs or even beat someone to death with a baseball bat.
