Dark Souls Trilogy will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 19. The collection includes Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades.
“The Dark Souls Trilogy gives those who haven’t played the Dark Souls series a great opportunity to jump in and experience what has become one of the most influential video game series of the past decade,” said Jenn Tsang, Marketing Brand Manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “The magic of Dark Souls lies within its ability to challenge players with highly rewarding gameplay and deliver a euphoric sense of accomplishment after beating a particularly tough boss, or area in the game. We hope to share that feeling with new players through DarkSouls Trilogy.”
Gamers yearning for a hard copy of the trilogy should not wait until the last minute to purchase the collection, as a limited number of copies are available (a pre-order for the physical edition is recommended). Are you a fan of the Dark Souls titles? Feel free to comment below!
During my many years as a gamer I’ve never played a title wherein a goblin is the main character in a story, but that’s not the only reason why The Path of Motus may be a keeper.
Three years in the making, the story centers on Motus, a young goblin who, though raised in a small village, has big dreams. Placing adversity in his path are numerous bullies who use the power of their negative words and influences in an attempt to stop his progress. As a fan of platform and side scrolling titles, I’ll definitely give the game a shot, especially since it has more than button mashing ambitions:
“When I was younger, I was interested in what made bullies act so aggressive,” said The Path of Motus game designer Michael Hicks. “As time went on I began to befriend some of them, and learned they had either been bullied themselves earlier in life, had really bad family lives, or were just simply jealous of other people; I kept all of this in mind as I designed the game. As Motus gradually grows from a child to an adult, you’ll get to explore the motivations of the characters you meet, and I expect you’ll have some surprising moments in the process! I feel the discussion around this topic often ignores the root causes of bullying, so hopefully this game lets us see how our own actions potentially contribute to this issue.”
The Path of Motus hits Xbox One, Steam and PlayStation 4 on July 17. Check out the release trailer and tell us what you think!

Turn-based role playing games coupled with immersive gameplay are a great combination, and hopefully that’s just a part of a combo that works with the upcoming title Rainbow Skies.

Now in Steam Early Access, the visually arresting 2D brawler Fantasy Strike will be released this summer (exact date tbd). This debut will coincide with its debut on the PlayStation 4 console and PC.
“Fantasy Strike is the perfect fighting game for Switch,” said David Sirlin, lead designer of the title. “The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously difficult they are to control Usually, playing a fighting game on a JoyCon would be tough, but Fantasy Strike is designed specifically for that. Detach the JoyCons, give one to a friend, and you can play a deep, strategic fighting game anywhere.”
During the latest patch, professional voice acting and facial animation for all 10 characters, along with a new Team Battle mode, have been added. Sirlin Games has also combined its own network tech with GGPO networking to give players a more seamless gaming experience. We’ll be reviewing the game in the coming months (possibly on the PlayStation 4) so stay tuned for our coverage!
First person puzzle adventures, at its best, will challenge gamers to the nth degree, and what makes Q.U.B.E. 2 an interesting adventure lies in the mystery behind archeologist Amelia Cross’ journey. Awakening to an alien world with no memory how she landed in the area, Cross, must navigate herself in a new environment and find her way home. As she overcomes the challenges that cross her path, Cross gets closer to discovering the truth, and with 80 puzzles to spare, our heroine has a ton of work to do.
“With Q.U.B.E. 2 we have pushed the boundaries of what a small independent team can create in a first person puzzle game,” said Toxic Games Managing Director Dan Da Rocha. “In addition to creating incredible new puzzles, we also focused on narrative from this game’s inception. Amelia’s emotional journey throughout the adventure has given the puzzles a greater thematic depth and spurred us on to design some truly unique challenges. We think this has truly elevated the gameplay experience of Q.U.B.E. 2 to another level.”

Q.U.B.E. 2 comes out March 13 on PC and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.
