From Software

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Review

Sekiro is From Software’s purest distillation of a game design philosophy that values skill-based combat and isn’t afraid to challenge the player at nearly every moment. Eschewing big weapons, flashy magic and “jolly co-operation,” Sekiro is squarely focused on timing and the sometimes imperceptible progression towards mastery.

Deracine Review

From Software’s games are built on non-traditional narratives that primarily involve sleuthing context and backstory from item descriptions, environmental design and hanging onto every word spoken by NPCs. Those who seek out clues will be rewarded with context, though none of that is necessary to enjoy the games. That’s why I was intrigued by Deracine, a first-person adventure game created exclusively for the PlayStation VR.

Dark Souls (Switch) Review

Frustrations with controls and screen size aside, there is something very cool about playing a teeny-tiny Dark Souls on the go. All the stats and builds that I have come to rely on from dozens of playthroughs work just fine, but some of the more complex boss battles really suffer from the size of the display and capricious, awkward controls.

Dark Souls Remastered Review

Having spent over a thousand hours playing Dark Souls on the PC - and dozens of hours on the original console versions - it would be fair to say I have a special relationship to the game. Dark Souls is my Mario and Zelda all rolled into one, a transformative experience that at this point in my life has become more ritual than entertainment, a series of moments and tasks that produce a Zen-like state of mind.

Dark Souls III

The pride and exhilaration one feels from a Dark Souls game is a lot like getting wrapped up in a blanket, fresh from the dryer, on a cold and rainy night.

Bloodborne: The Old Hunters

Just in case you’d forgotten that Bloodborne was one of the best games of the year, The Old Hunters should seal the deal and place it near the top of the list. Generously difficult, filled with hours of new story, and packed with interesting areas to explore and enemies to die to, The Old Hunters is a great addition to the game and should not be missed.
