Man, even the trailers for Dark Souls are difficult. The latest, from Gamescom, is a veritable buffet of player death. You say dragons are too easy to slay? How about we give them a torso made of teeth? Steely-nerved readers can watch the trailer above. Find a gallery of slightly less stressful...

For those intrigued by From Software's Dark Souls, the decision to pre-order looks like it will be considerably less difficult than the actual game. Rather than selling a collector's edition of the game at a premium price, publisher Namco Bandai is instead offering one as the pre-order bonus -- ...

This new Dark Souls trailer (past the break) closes the previous launch window ever so slightly: to October 2011. In addition to the revelation of a more specific release date is the realization of horrible homicide. Seriously, dude dies in this trailer. Like, a lot. It's not like we didn't ex...
