Review: Demon's Souls is the reason to grab a PS5

Souls has come full circle in a truly beautiful fashion. When it was first revealed, the long-rumored Demon's Souls remake was met with great enthusiasm, including from me. The original game's servers are down and it remains trapped on the PS3. There was no way it would stay there forever, however. This is a special title, something of a cult classic that helped spawn the entire "Souls" franchise (and genre) and elevated FromSoftware's name with spiritual successors in Dark Souls and Bloodborne. This was a game in desperate need of a remake, but Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio have gone above and beyond in remaking it. Enemies, bosses, areas, armor, weapons and more have all been lovingly redesigned, simultaneously honoring the Gothic, oppressive tone of the original game while elevating the visuals, audio, and gameplay to a level befitting the phrase "next-gen." I've spent well over 30 hours with this game and I'm sure I'll be spending

Here's the PS5 games using DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers

Image
Next-gen immersion in a hands-on fashion. The PS5 doesn't just bring in better graphics and higher framerates — it also gives players a new controller, the DualSense . This successor to the DualShock 4 features a higher-quality built-in microphone, a refined touchpad, an improved battery, and most importantly, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers . Those latter two features can be used by game developers in unique ways. Haptic feedback can give unique sensations, like the pattering of rain or a blast of energy, in a way that is more focused and accurate than rumble motors. Meanwhile, adaptive triggers can provide a variety of functions with different weapons due to the special physical functions that have been implemented. To provide a couple of examples, adaptive triggers are being used in Arkane Studios' Deathloop so that if a gun jams, the trigger physically locks. Meanwhile in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart , you can pull a trigger partially to fire one barrel on a pa

Astro's Playroom for PS5 review: PlayStation nostalgia at its best

Image
This modern 3D platformer is fueled by brand love. There was once a time when pack-in bundled games were regarded as the very best games available for that new console. You bought a Super Nintendo to play Super Mario World because it came in the box. The Sega Genesis came with Altered Beast, but eventually they switched that to Sonic the Hedgehog. Those days are mostly gone since game and console bundles are instead used as marketing devices to boost sales mid-generation. Luckily, Sony seems intent on reliving their past in more than one way with the launch of the PS5 . Not only is Astro's Playroom a fantastic little 3D platformer that proves Astro has real mascot potential for the PlayStation brand, but it's also an excellent demo for the DualSense controller and a no-brainer recommendation as the first game anyone should play on their newly opened PlayStation 5. At a glance Astro's Playroom Bottom line: Since this is a free pack-in game there is no deliberatio

Review in progress: The PS5 is a technical marvel, but is it enough?

The world may be on fire but at least the PS5 is finally here to distract you. Sony is launching its most ambitious console to date on Nov. 12, 2020 with the PS5 . The company dominated last generation with the PS4 and silenced naysayers who said that console gaming was dead. After selling upwards of 112 million units over the last seven years, Sony hopes to replicate its success with the PlayStation 5, which has already shattered pre-sales of its predecessor in a fraction of the time. If you're looking to buy a PS5 , just be aware that the demand is immense right now, and it could be a while before you're able to find one in stock. Because I have only had a week with the PS5 and there are certain areas that I'm not allowed to talk about until launch — the media section, entertainment apps, the integrated PlayStation Store, and the PS Plus section — this review will be more of a review in-progress that I update with my thoughts along the way. The aforementioned sections
