Where's our Dark Souls III review? Impressions after 30 hours

Where's our Dark Souls III review? Impressions after 30 hours

Eric Frederiksen

Dark Souls is always a tall order. From Software’s series is difficult and demanding, as well as time consuming. We’ve had about a week with the game, but we’re not quite ready to give our verdict yet, so we wanted to give some impressions of the game so far. Dark Souls was magnificent, thought its sequel less so. I ended up liking Dark Souls II once I was finished, but my initial...

The screenshot above were taken during our forthcoming review of Dark Souls III. We’ve left out any screenshots of boss battles, sticking mostly with locations to avoid spoilers. When people talk about the Dark Souls games (and Bloodborne), the first thing that’s usually brought up is the difficulty those games are so famous for. I’d be lying if I said they weren’t, and I’m pretty sure...

How well does the original Dark Souls run on Xbox One?

How well does the original Dark Souls run on Xbox One?

Eric Frederiksen

With¬†Dark Souls III¬†just weeks away, the Xbox One will soon be able to play all three titles in the series. We know¬†Dark Souls III¬†will run at 900p and 30fps¬†on the Xbox One, but what about the backwards compatible original? Eurogamer‚Äės Digital Foundry ran an analysis of the game and found that things are mostly the same. One element of note is that the Xbox One version is a bit darker...

Tekken 7 could be coming to the PC, Bandai Namco surveying interest

Tekken 7 could be coming to the PC, Bandai Namco surveying interest

Ron Duwell

Much like JRPGs, the traditional fighting game genre has found itself a nice home on the PC in recent years with Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and the indie crowd coming up big for the platform. Add another influential title to the list, and I’ll be convinced that this is a long-term investment. Enter Tekken. You might have heard of it. Bandai Namco is currently surveying fans ...

Pokkén Tournament's zero tolerance rage-quitting policy strips away your Pokémon gold

Pokkén Tournament's zero tolerance rage-quitting policy strips away your Pokémon gold

Ron Duwell

Pokkén Tournament might seem like a relatively light fighting game in the face of Street Fighter V, but Bandai Namco isn’t having any of it when it comes to rage-quitters. Its system leaves no quarter and will punish rage-quitters appropriately for ditching on a match. Of course, the company is more than fair when it comes to giving warnings. In fact, it has an adorable anime girl...

Pokkén Tournament's opening CG - Lucario vs Pikachu? This isn't a match!

Pokkén Tournament's opening CG - Lucario vs Pikachu? This isn't a match!

Ron Duwell

Pokkén Tournament will start with a rumble-tumble CG intro every time you turn the game on, and this is it. Right off the bat, the video pits the most popular critters of the lot against one another in a one-on-one fight that sadly doesn’t resolve itself. Let’s be honest, though. We know that unless that Pikachu is a staggering 25-30 levels higher than his opponent, Lucario is just...

Fans want Shadow Mewtwo to be canon, The Pokémon Company is undecided

Fans want Shadow Mewtwo to be canon, The Pokémon Company is undecided

Ron Duwell

Mewtwo is the eternal badass of the Pokémon universe. I don't care what generation you entered the series from or how much you think psychic Pokémon are unfairly overpowered, we all have to agree that this guy just emits an aura that demands respect every time he hits the battlefield. Fans went crazy over the new Shadow Mewtwo when it was first announced for the Bandai Namco's arcade...
