Code Vein (opens in new tab), Bandai Namco's vampire ARPG, is out in a few days, and some of you might be able to get your hands on a copy by giving up some of the blood that you aren't using—you've got loads—to an extremely good cause.

The Code Vein blood bank will be open on September 27 in San Diego. If that's in your neck of the woods, you can sign up here. Bandai Namco will be spilling more details in a few days, during TwitchCon.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long or talking about his dog.
