From Software video teases Playstation VR project in 2017

While many people may associate developer From Software with the ruthlessly difficult Dark Souls franchise, along with Demon Souls and Bloodborne, they previously made a name for themselves with a variety of other classic games they made since the debut of the original Playstation. I mention this because an unlisted video from From Software’s YouTube channel was recently posted to Reddit tha...[Read More]

First 14 minutes of Dark Souls III footage released, escalates quickly

  True to its brutal opening cinematic, Dark Souls III seems to have a pretty brutal introductory area. Well, not immediately, but it gets there. In fact one could call bullshit on this being a Souls starting area as the player isn’t dying repeatedly and being beaten into submission. But once they arrive to the first boss, things sure escalate quickly. This footage also shows how much D...[Read More]

So let’s talk about video game length vs price

  I often find myself defending the duration of video games the same way some people defend their genitalia: it doesn’t matter how long it is, just how well you use it. I’ll take an amazing but short experience, say Portal, over a mediocre lengthy one, like Watch Dogs, any day. The discussion of a game’s length compared to its worth, both as a game in itself as well as its p...[Read More]

Tom’s top three games of 2015

  2015 was a pretty good year for games. So good, in fact, that I predicted it would be really hard to choose my own personal Game of the Year. And boy was it. I haven’t agonised over a decision like this in anything other than a Telltale game in a long time. Honourable mentions: But before we get into that, here are some shout outs to the games that were great, but honestly just not qu...[Read More]

2015 gaming highlight reel shows GOTY will be hard to pick

  There’s only three more (ish) weeks of 2015 to go, so we all know what that means: it’s round-up time! And what better way to do that then with a montage? In a similar vein to DJ Earworm’s annual “United States of Pop” mashups, whose most recent one was actually pretty average mainly because Justin Bieber released an album this year, YouTuber Tim Main creates &...[Read More]

Bloodborne’s DLC expansion has weird access method because of course it does

  The Old Hunters, From Software’s first DLC expansion to their ruthlessly brutal RPG Bloodborne, releases for Playstation 4 tomorrow, meaning soon we can all go back into decrepit London Yharnam and hopefully shank some beasts in-between all the dying in the attempts. The game has already received a 9GB patch in preparation for the release which is mainly made up of tweaks to the onlin...[Read More]

Ode to old school horror

– Karly Taylor By definition, an ode is typically a piece of writing in lyrical/poetic format, created with the intention of being sung as a melody. Now, I’m not going to do that for two reasons. First reason being I’m a journalist, not a song writer, so anything I churn out in an effort to try and be musical will turn out more of a parody than anything else. Secondly, nobody wan...[Read More]

The Old Hunters: Bloodborne statues

– Chelsea Edwards After months of waiting since that one tweet from Shuhei Yoshida; saying an expansion for Bloodborne was inbound (much excite), Sony announced Bloodborne The Old Hunters, a DLC expansion for the critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 exclusive released earlier this year. The expansion will take you even deeper inside the sinister secrets of Yharnam as you experience yet another...[Read More]

Bloodborne The Old Hunters

– Charlie Braithwaite From Software’s Bloodborne was simultaneously one of the most interesting games and one of the most frustrating games that I’ve played so far this year.  It had a good balance of difficulty and intrigue that made it compelling, up until the spiders came in and I just noped my way out of ever finishing it. As I’ve discussed before, spiders in games are ...[Read More]

Spiders in games are not okay

– Charlie Braithwaite As I’ve already discussed, I’m not a fan of certain enemies in games, previously it was dogs. Who wants to attack a dog? Seriously guys, it’s 2015. Okay, enough, with that, this week it isn’t about dogs. No, it is about their polar opposite, spiders. Fuck spiders. When I was younger I used every birthday wish attempting to eradicate them from thi...[Read More]
