Dark Souls Remastered for Switch Review

Dark Souls Remastered for Switch Review

Dark Souls Remastered has, after a lengthy delay, finally arrived on Nintendo Switch. While this is really a technical and graphical polishing of the original – there’s no major new gameplay content – the Switch’s handheld mode adds an absorbing new dimension to what is, for me at least, a very familiar experience. But it also did something I wasn’t expecting: it made the return to Lordran feel oddly new. If you don’t know much about Dark Souls, here’s what IGN said when it first came to consoles… “…if you’re interested in the limits of the video game form – to see just how focused, how pure and how uncompromising in its vision a game can be – Dark Souls is unmissable. If you take the time get into Dark Souls’ mindset, to begin to understand the twisted way in which it operates and taste the rewards behind its cruellest challenges, this is one of the most thrilling, most fascinating and most completely absorbing experiences in gaming.” – Keza MacDonald Continue reading…

Daredevil's True Strength Comes From Religion

Daredevil's True Strength Comes From Religion

A seasoned attorney. The Man Without Fear. The sworn enemy of The Hand. Daredevil wears a lot of hats, but all signs for the upcoming third season of his Netflix show point to one of his most consistent and intriguing characterizations: the tormented Catholic. It’s a tricky needle to thread — mixing religion and superheroes always is — but when it’s handled well, it’s been the source of some of the very best Daredevil stories. Maybe even the very best one of all: Frank Miller’s iconic 1986 storyline, “Born Again.” Few Miller stories were darker, but fewer still had a more hopeful, uplifting conclusion. In “Born Again,” Daredevil’s triumph comes thanks to his religious beliefs just as much as his billy club and super senses. Continue reading…

Rockstar Grants Permission for Developers to Talk About Working Conditions

Rockstar Grants Permission for Developers to Talk About Working Conditions

Following controversy surrounding Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser’s comments on 100-hour work weeks during the development of Red Dead Redemption 2, the studio has seemingly given its employees the opportunity to speak openly about working conditions. Experiences from several current Rockstar employees lined up with Houser’s second statement, in which he claimed that only he and a select portion of the writing team “crunched” to this degree during certain points in the game’s development.

Battlefield 5’s War Stories Have More Heart, Depth Than Battlefield 1’s

Battlefield 5’s War Stories Have More Heart, Depth Than Battlefield 1’s

I’ll be honest: I didn’t care for Battlefield 1’s single-player vignettes – dubbed War Stories. Sure, they were fairly well-received in 2016, but I thought they were too short to convey any sort of real emotion or have any meaningful impact on the player, and instead they fell into stereotypical buckets like “tank level,” “airplane level,” etc. Hats off to Battlefield 5, then, because after playing one full War Story and pieces of a few others (on the PC version), it’s clear that developer DICE also thought that the ceiling on its solo Battlefield campaign was much higher.   The tutorial, which I’ve been asked not to spoil, does a good job of setting expectations for what Battlefield V’s solo mode will deliver. It moves briskly and confidently without overstaying its welcome, but what I really want to talk about anyway is the first full mission, Nordlys. Set in the harsh Norweigan winter of 1943 during World War II, it follows the story of two women from the Resistance who uncover a nightmarish plot by the Nazis to fuel an atomic weapons program. The early parts of the mission both support and encourage stealth gameplay, including the stash of a half-dozen knives you carry that can be used to silently take out potentially noisy – and definitely lethal – Axis scumbags.
