Major Dark Souls Overhaul Mod Daughters Of Ash Now Available For The Remastered Version

A few months ago, we posted about the Daughters of Ash overhaul mod for Dark Souls. The mod remixed the entire game from top to bottom, messing with enemy placement, scripting changes, and more for a new experience for seasoned Dark Souls players. The mod, being a culmination of years and thousands of hours of work, only supported the original PC release of Dark Souls. In a surprisingly quick turnaround, the mod creator has gotten Daughters of Ash compatible with the Remastered release as well.

Dark Souls Remastered released in 2017 on consoles as well as PC, but it did come out before the release of Daughters of Ash. While players are split about some of the game's graphical changes, especially compared to the original game with the fanmade DSFix mod, the Remastered version also has things like native button remapping, no 60 FPS ladder glitches, and some changes to the way you pick up and equip items. This made some fans eager for Daughters of Ash to support the newer version.

Scott "Grimrukh" Mooney, the creator of the mod, agreed, and said he had planned to get the mod to support Dark Souls Remastered before the summer. True to his word, Daughters of Ash is now available to use regardless of which version you own. You can download the mod here.

Borderlands 3's Art Director Confirms They Did Try To Make A Box Art With A Three-Handed Psycho

Borderlands 3's Art Director Confirms They Did Try To Make A Box Art With A Three-Handed Psycho

You might remember Borderlands' box art being this fairly stylish image at the time of a Psycho, the game's masked generic enemies, pointing finger guns at his head and blowing art out the other side. Borderlands 2 followed up the only way that was really logical, with two finger guns and two art blowouts from the head. As rumors of Borderlands 3 rose, fans started joking about the impossibility of continuing the tradition with a third game and thus a third arm. Sure enough, when Borderlands 3's box art was revealed, it was a Psycho in a meditative pose holding up three fingers instead.

It turns out, however, that Gearbox did try that initial box art idea before eventually deciding they would rather go with the zen Psycho instead.

"Trust me, we figured it out," Borderlands 3 art director Scott Kester said in an interview with Game Informer. "I'm trying to get it as an alternate cover, maybe we can throw one in as the Naked Gun kind. We've done a lot. But honestly, we thought this game needed to shift gears a little bit, so we thought [the Borderlands 3 art] was the way to do that."

PlayStation Plus Emphasizes Family Fun With Overcooked And What Remains Of Edith Finch In May

PlayStation Plus Emphasizes Family Fun With Overcooked And What Remains Of Edith Finch In May

With the PlayStation Plus offerings being Thanos-snapped into fewer games after March of this year, Sony is bringing some very well-liked PlayStation 4 titles to the service for the month of May. This month, the service gets two big indie titles in the form of Overcooked and What Remains of Edith Finch, so you can get a pretty wide range of different feelings from these games.

Overcooked, which had a sequel release last year, is a cooking co-op game where you will learn to hate your friends and family for either not cooking well enough to pass the level or being the person who takes the game too seriously and hates everyone else for not cooking well enough to pass the level. It's fun, and the ride before it ends relationships is pretty great.

What Remains of Edith Finch, which was also free on Epic Games Store without a paid subscription a few months ago, is a narrative tale from Giant Sparrow, developers of Unfinished Swan. The anthology has you explore the lives, and more importantly deaths, of people in a long and tragic family line.

Earthworm Jim Developers Reunite To Make New Game

Earthworm Jim turns 25 this year, which is our way of reminding a certain segment of our readership that they're old. Sorry! To make up for that, here's something fun: Ten members of the game's original team – including Doug TenNapel, David Perry, and Tommy Tallarico – are getting back together to make an all-new Earthworm Jim game, exclusive to the recently announced Intellivision Amico console. 

"We have been talking about this moment for many years," says Tallarico, the original composer and sound designer for Earthworm Jim and the CEO and President of Intellivision of Entertainment. "It’s a dream come true to finally get the entire team back together. We’re looking forward to sharing a small part of our reunion and initial design meeting with fans from around the world."

He and the rest of the team will be sharing that vision via a livestream of the game's first design meeting. The team will be interacting with fans and giving away custom art – and also revealing their vision for the next Earthworm Jim. You can check out the stream here this Saturday, May 4, at 2 p.m. Central.

Fate Of The Furious Director Attached To Saints Row Movie

It's been a while since we've heard the words "Saints Row" spoken aloud, but that's about to change. According to Deadline, a film adaptation of the gonzo open-world series is in the works, and F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious, Men in Black: International) is attached to direct.

Greg Russo is writing the script for the film. It's not Russo's first crack at working within the game space, either. He's also working on the script for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.

In other movie/game news, we got our first glimpse of the film adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog in motion earlier this morning. Then again, if you spent any time online today, you've probably been overwhelmed by the reaction already.
