Murder Puzzler Deathloop Gets Groovy Theme, Explainer

Murder Puzzler Deathloop Gets Groovy Theme, Explainer

We don’t often do straight up news posts here at The Reticule, especially not for AAA titles which everyone knows about already. But Deathloop seems to still be going somewhat under the radar in the broader gaming community, despite me absolutely falling in love with it when it featured in Sony’s PlayStation 5 unveiling last summer, and if I can do my bit to share the news of this brilliant looking game, then I will.

Why Hitman’s World of Assassination should have stayed episodic

Why Hitman’s World of Assassination should have stayed episodic

The release of Hitman 3 has been met with high praise from critics, but not all as gone entirely smoothly with friction around integrating with the previous titles in the trilogy causing concern, especially for the PC community. It leads me to wonder whether IO Interactive missed a trick by moving away from Hitman 2016’s episodic release structure?

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Verdict

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Verdict

As the years have gone by, Ubisoft have worked to evolve and iterate the Assassin’s Creed formula, moving away from the city games to vast open world RPGs.

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.

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. I’ve been able to spend plenty of time with Sony’s chunky machine, and as this is the first time I’ve been able join a new console generation from day one, it’s time to share my thoughts.

The Outer Worlds – The Verdict

The Outer Worlds – The Verdict

If we did classic scores rather than Verdict’s, The Outer Worlds would have been given that classic 7/10 score. A rating which indicates a game is well rounded and generally pretty good, without being outstanding. You know, something you might pick up when it’s on offer. 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.
