Demon’s Souls – The Verdict

Demon’s Souls – The Verdict

Despite trying my hand at most entries in the series, I’m no expert on From Software’s SoulsBorne games. I usually get an hour or so into the game and then come to a stop, take Sekiro for instance which I gave up on shortly after writing some first impressions. With the arrival of the PlayStation 5 though (and more on the console itself here), the big new generation launch title is Demon’s Souls, and I did the right thing by picking up a copy.

Thoughts on the PlayStation 5

Thoughts on the PlayStation 5

It’s been a little over a week since I picked up my PlayStation 5 from GAME, and I thank my lucky stars I was able to get an in-store pre-order without having to rely on delivery services.

Funnily enough, The Outer Worlds has just landed on Steam and GOG after a year of Epic exclusivity with a two week 50% off deal, and for £24.99, I’d suggest it’s something worth your while picking up.

Project CARS 3 – The Verdict

Project CARS 3 – The Verdict

The release of Project CARS 3 caught me slightly off guard, and that shouldn’t be of much surprise as recent racing game focus at The Reticule has been on art of rally, F1 2020 and Dirt 5. Development has again been handled by Slightly Mad Studios with Namco Bandai handling publishing duties, even though Slightly Mad are now part of the Codemasters empire. Having sunk a few hours into the game, I wonder whether the change of ownership of Slightly Mad has had an impact on the game itself with a few elements not quite hooking up as they could have done.
