Dark Souls 3 glitch causes revealing wardrobe malfunction

From Software’s Souls games are known for their difficulty, but also for their inexplicably detailed character creator. Why put so much effort into designing a character whose face and form you will barely see, let alone recognize, under heaps of equipment? Why put sliders on attributes like gender and nose bridge width? Why pick anything but the bottom-heavy/big-head combo?

These questions may never satisfactorily be answered, but thanks to a new Dark Souls 3 graphical glitch, we do have a sound answer to one important question: Why spend time customizing your character’s build?

Because you can see their butt, that’s why, and you want that thing lookin' nice.

Evidently, crouching and bowing animations clash with certain armor in Dark Souls 3, to revealing results. The avatar model clips through robe models, revealing some surprisingly shapely bums. Have a look:

Latest Dark Souls 3 speedrun is under 90 minutes

Some people take the term "gotta go fast" and apply it to games. He who completed the latest speedrun of the notoriously hard Dark Souls 3 went really fast and made it in under 90 minutes!

Just recently, people were amazed that someone could complete Dark Souls III under two hours. This time Japanese youtuber "muzi_nasu" completed the whole of  Dark Souls 3 in 1 hour, 29 minutes and 10 seconds! The in-game timer said he did it in 1: 23: 18, but in reality it took him 1: 29: 10 to finish the game (the in-game timer doesn't account for load times). 

A Twitch streamer by the name of Distortion2 managed to complete the game in 1 hour, 34 minutes and 05 seconds  (1: 27: 45 in-game time), and he also killed all optional bosses. In other words, Distortion2 only needed five more minutes to kill five bosses. 

Dark Souls 3 is coming up on its April 12 Western release and only just released in Japan, so we are just scraping the iceberg of Dark Souls 3 speedruns. Muzi_Nasu said him self that he believed that he probably could do it in 80 minutes without using shortcuts and such, and said he could push it down to 60 if he knew shortcuts and other mechanics. Who knows how fast the next speedrun will be.

Dark Souls 3 will release on April 12 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. For more information, have a look at our full review.

'Dark Souls is over' says series director Miyazaki; New game in development

"Dark Souls is over" says the genius behind the series Hidetaka Miyazaki. Dark Souls 3 is the last one planned, after that it is over for Miyazaki. It is time to turn the page.

After the success of both Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 many had hoped for Miyazaki to keep on making those types of games, but Miyazaki said in an interview with Taiwanese GNN Gamer, translated by NeoGaf with the help of Google Translate that he is done with Dark Souls and all similar games.

Just like previous games Dark Souls 3 will have several DLCs, and it looks like it will be the last of Dark Souls we'll get to see in a while.

"Dark Souls 3 will be have several DLCs like previous games. But there’s absolutely no plan right now for any sequels, spin-offs or tie-ins."

But Miyazaki isn't closing the door completely.

"But I can’t say for certain the possibility is 0%. For example, if a FROM Software developer comes to me five years from now and begs ‘please let me make another Dark Souls‘. Then I will not rule out the possibility to let my subordinates start a new project."

After all, Miyazaki did not lead the development of the second installment in the Dark Souls series, Dark Souls 2. That game was handled by another team.

Instead Miyazaki is looking forward towards new challenges and new games to make. Dakr Souls is over for him.

"What is certain for now is, to me personally Dark Souls is over. So rather than make another sequel, I think it’s time we take a step to a new direction. Development of a new IP has already begun."

This new IP will most likely not be anything like Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Only Miyazaki himself knows what the future holds and what type of games he will work on next. And it will definitely not be a Demon's Souls remaster since when he was asked about it he said "We want to try making new things."

Maybe it is a good thing that the beloved series ended on a high note instead of it being milked until everyone hated it.

The Dark Souls developer is working on a PlayStation VR game for 2017

From Software, developers of the Dark Souls series (as well as Demon's Soul and Bloodborne), might be working on a VR game for PlayStation 4 scheduled for release sometime in 2017.

The mastermind at From Software, Hidetaka Miyazaki, recently said that the Dark Souls series was over, that he wanted to do something new, and that they were working on a new game, something that an unlisted YouTube video on From Software's YouTube channel confirms.

The video which shows a timeline of From Software's games over the years came out on April 14, but it wasn't really discovered by the public until about a day ago when Reddit found out abut it.

Like the picture above says, From Software's next game will be on "PlayStationVR". No one knows what the new game will be but is sure looks like From's next game will be joining the growing list of PlayStationVR developers.

Dark Souls 3 next update detailed; First DLC pack coming in Fall

Earlier this week, Dark Souls 3 officially made its world-wide debut on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Regardless of how recent the game's release was, players are already looking towards future DLC for the game. 

From what we know, Dark Souls 3 will be receiving two post-release content updates as part of its DLC plans. The DLC has been teased to be "epic" and will feature new maps, bosses, enemies, armor and weapons. Of course, the DLC will come at a cost, a Season Pass is available for $24.99 and the standalone purchase price has not been confirmed.

However, this Fall we can look forward to the first bit of DLC for freshly released game (via VideoGamer).

Prior to the DLC's release, an update to the game is coming on April 18th at 2am PST ( 5am EST / 11am CEST). It has not been confirmed if the update will be across multiple platforms or if it will only be available on PC as the information was posted on Steam.

The developer detailed what the update would cover in a Steam post, as seen below:

  • Performance adjustment for “Greatsword”
  • Battle performance adjustment for “Dancer’s Enchanted Sword”, “Winged Knight Twinaxes”
  • Performance adjustment for “Soul’s Greatsword”, and “Farron Flashsword”
  • Fix for issue where multiple items become impossible to use at “Road of Sacrifices”, “Farron Keep”, “Cathedral of the Deep” after clearing the game.
  • General balance adjustments and bug fixes

PC players suffering game breaking bugs in Dark Souls 3

It is common knowledge that the Dark Souls games are supposed to be hard and unforgiving, but a bug in the PC version makes the game a bit too tough.

Apparently Dark Souls III on PC suffers from a few bugs, some of which make the game unplayable. One of the worst bugs brings a game crashe when players approach the first bonfire. Even if player manages to make it past the first bonfire, the game crashes at Firelink Shrine and sometimes the game just crashes because it feels like it.

These aren't problems that just a few players have encountered, quite a few have been affected by the bugs and crashes. It is fair to say that Dark Souls III suffers from a few stability issues.

There are "fixes" for these problems such as setting the "Lighting Quality to Low", removing the shield when approaching the bonfire, or starting as a Knight. As of now, the "start as a Knight" fix seems to be the best solution.

Bandai Namco is not directly responding to these problems when players present them. Instead, they are redirecting affected customers to their official support page.

Both Bandai Namco and the official Dark Souls page have been quiet about these problems, but since they are game breaking it is safe to say that they are working hard to fix the bugs. Unless they do something like they did with Dark Souls 2 (on th PC), where the durability bug was only fixed in a separate updated version of the game – Darks Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin.

Dark Souls 3 patch goes live today, brings balance to weapons and fixes minor bugs

Dark Souls 3 has been out for a week now and it has been getting great reviews while breaking all sorts of records. However, there are some bugs that need fixing and Bandai Namco is already on the case.

 

Patch 1.04 (PS4 and Xbox One) and 1.03.1 (PC) will be deploying later today. It will be bringing many fixes to the overpowered weapons in the game like the Greatsword and Farron Flashsword.

 

To get the full list of changes checks down below:

 

• Performance adjustment for Greatsword.

• Battle performance adjustment for Dancer’s Enchanted Sword and Winged Knight Twin axes.

• Performance adjustments for Soul’s Greatsword and Farron Flashsword.

• Fix for issue where multiple items become impossible to use at Road of Sacrifices, Farron Keep, Cathedral of the Deep after clearing the game.

 

These fixes are great, but Souls players will have to be waiting a little while longer for multiplayer problems. From Software did manage to issue an apology on the matter.

 

“Password matching done under the following conditions may result in an extended amount of time required for the match to complete,” the developer said. Many players are signed in the corresponding area. There is a large gap between the levels of the players who are using the password.”

A Dark Souls board game is in development

Board game creator Steamforged Games today announced its collaboration with publisher Bandai Namco on the development of an official Dark Souls board game.

“As Dark Souls fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honor of developing a board game that embraces everything that makes Dark Souls the deep, compelling game experience that it is,” Steamforged said in an announcement.

The Dark Souls board game will be launched on Kickstarter this month. A release date has not yet been given, nor has Steamforged outlined where in the Dark Souls timeline the game will be set.

Fear not, ye of little faith (in crowdfunding): Steamforged Games’ previous board game, Guild Ball, was essentially a medieval take on soccer, and raised over 300 percent of its original Kickstarter goal.

Now then, time to speculate on the name of the mystery Dark Souls board game. I’m partial to Hungry Hungry Humanity, I admit. Something a little more mature? Settlers of the Catacombs, perhaps? Sorry You Died Again?

Wait, I’ve got another one: Capra Demon Kerplunk?
