Taking the fight to one of the toughest bosses in Dark Souls 3 and then annihilating the monster in one hit seems practically impossible, doesn't it? Not for this guy.

Details on how this player managed to defeat such a difficult opponent are a bit of mystery, there are some explanations.

Anyway, take a look below:

Things that potentially ruin people:

  • vanity
  • fear
  • fear of vanity
  • jealousy
  • anger
  • greed
  • bitterness
  • and, sumbitting to pure greed and fearing the anger because you're bitterly jealous of somebody else's vanity.

Man, I feel very puzzled about life today. Do you feel puzzled? I know I feel puzzled. Maybe it's time to solve some proper puzzles and for that I can wholeheartedly recommend The Witness by Jonathan Blow (Blake recommends it too).

Of course we aren't done with the Star Wars news for the day, and Respawn has announced a doozy of a surprise. They have teamed up with EA and Lucasfilm to create a "whole new adventure to the galaxy."

"For me, just typing these words is surreal. I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game. On top of that, I get to do it at Respawn, a studio comprised of the most talented collection of game makers, creators, visionaries, and (most importantly) advocates for the player, that I have had the good fortune to work with. And we, like you all, have no shortage of Star Wars passion," Stig Asmussen, former lead on the God of War series, posted on the Respawn blog.

It will be a third-person action/adventure game set in the universe, and that's all they have said about it so far. However, they are hiring in "all departments" as they "expand the dream" for their upcoming journey.

Asmussen said that he understands that simply saying a "third-person action/adventure game" sounds really bland, but they believe that with the vastness of the Star Wars universe, they have nearly infinite paths to go down and play with. Asmussen is so excited about it, here's hoping it's not a colossal failure.

"Looking back to 1977, I witnessed Star Wars unleash its magic on the big screen, forever changing me (little did I know how much at the time). The crazy thing is this magic doesn’t have a shelf life. Decades later I observed the same wonder in my kids’ eyes as they watched A New Hope. What a rarity, for a book, a film, or even a game to have that kind of impact, spanning several generations, even promising to continue into future ones. The opportunity to be a part of that is not something to take for granted. This is an opportunity that I, the team, and Respawn could not and would not pass up," he wrote.

"This is the chance of a lifetime."

It has been quite the week of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 game announcements. Today's trailer is from Neocore Games and their action-RPG of Warhammer 40K, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. In the first of potentially several Inquisitor logs, this one shockingly focuses upon the destruction players can unleash (it's the title of the trailer, after all; there better be some destruction). But the destruction isn't purely for the player's whim either; there is a strategic layer to the fun that comes with blowing up the environment.

"Of course destruction is not only a cosmetic feature, the covers that players and enemies can both utilize also are destructible, bringing another tactical layer to the action-RPG gameplay," Neocore explains in a press release. "Covers provide a more realistic approach to close range, visceral firefights and both the players and enemy creatures can effectively employ these positions to mitigate incoming damage. This new gameplay-driven video illustrates how players and AI can strategically hide behind destructible boxes, barriers, and machinery for quick pop-and-shoot tactics. But after a few rounds of fire, each party must dash for new cover or go full-on face-to-face to take a battle."

No release date set yet for Martyr, but it is scheduled to release in 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

It's Star Wars day and we celebrate by offering a mini-feature for you guys. It's not much, but maybe it'll be an interesting read if you like toying around with ideas for video games, especially if they're inspired by the Star Wars universe.

Bear in mind that some of these ideas are similar to Star Wars games we did have in the past, but overall, there's a lot of room for these to evolve, improve and eventually find a place in today's video game market.

Check it out:

Death Star - It's No Moon...
Genre: Strategy and micromanagement

...Imagine if we could control the Death Star, micromanage all the things needed to run this mechanical giant. Remember, this is a freakin' space station, and taking the helm of the entire Empire and setting out to conquer the galaxy is no easy task. The primary objective is to initiate planetary blockades, and demonstrate the true power of the Empire. That's right, as you enforce the will of the Emperor, the galaxy shall tremble and star systems will fall.

May the 4th be with you!
