PlayStation 5 – The Nioh Collection

Set in 1600’s Japan, ‘The Nioh Collection’ follow the adventures of William Adams as he pursues the sorcerer Edward Kelley.

Both games are action packed with lots of blood, gore and a multitude of Monsters to defeat as you navigate through the various levels.

Graphically this newly updated version of the two ‘Nioh’ games look beautiful – but both are very challenging to conquer.

Personally I really enjoyed the games – but found them very hard. This is definitely a game for the die hard fans of the franchise and any gaming ‘Completionists’ that like to play everything on the hardest level.

PlayStation 5 – Watch Dogs Legion

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – Watch Dogs Legion

After 5 long years, Ubisoft finally ventured to London once again when creating their brand new open-world game in Watchdogs: Legion, and whether you love it or hate it, one thing you cannot deny is the guts of Ubisoft for this one. The major change with Legion compared to any of the other games in the Watchdogs is that the story doesn’t revolve around a single main character or even characters at that. The heroes of the story are the city of London itself, everyone from flamboyant street magicians to drone operating builders, Watchdogs: Legion has it all for you to play, with this vast character playability being one of its most polarising aspects. 


This introduction of no true lead does sacrifice classic open-world RPG features as I really missed the skill tree aspect within the game and the wealth of abilities contained within one character. However, by no means is it all negatives with a key part of the game being the recruitment and discovery of new types of people with unique character builds and personalities installed within almost every one. At first, this seemed fun, bringing about a new take to the mission, yet after a few hours, I felt the recruitment missions, usually regarding beating up a mob boss or destroying blackmail, to become monotonous and somewhat boring, however, this is the price to pay when having such a wealth of playable personas.


The story itself is ok, bringing about a few thought-provoking topics including privatized police and other such political ideals yet much like the recruitment missions I felt a lot of to feel like a task in order to get to the good bits rather than a captivating journey to the end goal. The bad guys themselves, are pretty well developed and make you genuinely want to end them which is always good, with a standout character being Mary Kelly, the sadistic head of the London mob. However, the main enemies are both Albion and Zero Day, one a private military on the hunt for Dead Sec and the other a terrorist organization responsible for the bombings around London and the framing of Dead Sec.


The setting itself is beautiful as well as being terrifying. The amazing setting of London is really done justice within the game as I found myself racing around for hours finding my favorite monuments and sights. The not so pretty bit are the thousands of drones patrolling the skies and the near-future setting becomes a battleground whenever you put on your mask due to instantly being detected by the police drones. Combat is fun with each character having their own abilities to add and Hitmen especially are very fun to play.


All in all, Watchdogs: Legion is certainly a fun playing experience with a good story and amazing setting up to par with some of Ubisoft’s best, yet personally the removal of a central protagonist wasn’t a great decision as missions seemed to become repetitive due to the lack of character development in both the combat and personality wise. However, the large playable cast definitely has its benefits but I feel they don’t quite outweigh the negatives.

PlayStation 5 – Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate

Mortal Kombat 11 is nothing short of a masterpiece within the fighting game world and with the introductions of legends such as THE Rambo, this ultimate pack is a must buy. Excluding the original 1992 game which, I must say, still holds up with tons of retro gaming goodness, this was my first experience with the mortal Kombat franchise and what an introduction it made! Briefly recapping the story, the game takes place directly after the events of MK 10 where Shinnok has been defeated and Raiden is running around with an elder god amulet being all dark and brooding. Everything is seemingly fine until, like all Mortal Kombat games, it all goes to chaos, this time thanks to a Titaness called Kronika, the Goddess of time and mother of Cetrion and Shinnok. She decides that Raiden has ruined the timeline and basically breaks time bringing characters from all across the Mortal Kombat together to duke it out.


What’s new to MK 11 Ultimate?


Excluding the graphics, which look absolutely incredible bringing so much satisfaction as you rip a characters head off or chop them in half, there are many new features within this ultimate edition, not seen within the original release. These include: 

– Kombat Pack 1 (Shang Tsung, Terminator, Joker, Spawn, Nightwolf and Sindel)

– Aftermath Expansion ( a further 5 chapters directly following the end of MK11 as well as 3 more playable characters; Sheeva, Robocop and Fujin. 

– Kombat Pack 2 ( Mileena, Rain and Rambo) 

Unfortunately, other than the Kombat pack 2 DLC, all of these features have been out for quite a while so if you are a massive fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise, there is a strong chance that you may have the majority of the new additions, however, if you don’t the ultimate edition is a steal. The most recent DLC (Kombat pack 2) came out alongside the ultimate edition and, personally, having played with all of the DLC characters, I feel it is the most enjoyable addition so far. Not only are Rain and Mileena both standout characters, with Mileena being specifically fun to play, but Rambo’s pure brutality and charisma shine through, making not only his combat legendary but his pre-fight conversations some of the best within the entire roster, which is only further brought to life by the fact he is actually voiced by Sylvester Stallone sending shivers down my spine every time he says the names of any of the OG MK characters, getting even better when juxtaposed with the Terminator voice actor’s ‘ok’ Arnie impression.


Overall, this game is a must-buy for all fighting game lovers with its massive roster only getting better with its new additions. I would have liked to see more new features, unique to the Ultimate edition, making it more attractive to owners of all the previous DLCs, perhaps making Kronika a playable character, for example. Yet this doesn’t stop the game from being thoroughly enjoyable for new and old players, giving MK fans hours of enjoyment

It’s the perfect pick up and play game with bundles of playable characters and some incredibly fun special moves. Mortal Kombat 11 is a bit bloodfest – so not for the faint hearted. But if you know the games well you’re in for a real treat – Highly Recommended!!!

PlayStation 5 – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft broke the trend back in 2018, announcing that there would not be a new Assasins creed game in 2019 and that they would instead spend an extra year perfecting the final chapter of Layla’s story and man did it pay off. Valhalla takes place in the year 873 AD within the setting of the highly requested Viking invasions of England and between the mix of its ridiculously large, beautiful map and the rich amount of substance and number of great characters within the story, it has combined to be one of the best AC games of all time.


The game starts you off in the shoes of a young, Scandinavian child, Eivor, who watches their family get slaughtered by a rival Viking leader. We then cut to the same young Viking but now a fully grown man (can also choose a female protagonist) and the adoptive son of the local Viking king, as he explores the beautiful yet briefly visited setting of Norway in search for answers to the strange visions he seems to be receiving from the Gods. One thing Valhalla does really well is the execution of religions within its world, as the interpretation of Norse mythology really shines through as a standout feature of the game. Furthermore, the ideas of Christianity and its roots within England and the Roman Empire are really fascinating to explore, adding to the classic ideas of science vs religion and themes of an almost modern-day renaissance so key to the series. The real story begins, however, when Eivor’s brother adoptive Sigurd seeks to create his own story separate of his father by sailing to and taking over England. So after a brief encounter with some wandering members of the assassins, Eivor sets off in hopes of new glory and riches within England.


This game is probably best described through the word MASSIVE. From its over 70 hour main story to its combined 140km² of playable terrain, Assasins Creed: Valhalla will keep you entertained for a very long time even if you aren’t one for completing all the side missions or a collectibles addict, however, this itself is also a massive improvement from the previous instalment, where side missions and discoverables are far less crammed down your throat and instead provide an actual fun storyline and challenge to complete. Additionally, the use of brand new combat mechanics including a total of 8 brand new equitable abilities at any one time and an outrageously satisfying set of kill animations make the more horde heavy fighting style the last 3 games have been starting to lean toward, even more fun. The inclusion of the brand new skill tree adds a new way to sculpt your character gaining more and more perks as the story continues through its constellation-like layout. There is a decreased emphasis on the Assasin’s side of the game as for the first half of the game, they are merely dangled above you like a cat trying to get a beam of light on the wall leaving small hints to their existence until we finally get to see them in all their glory. Although it seems to be inevitable with a game of this sheer magnitude, the beginning of the game lacks the proper pacing yet after around the 10-hour mark, it severely picks up its stride keeping you captivated at every moment. 


Despite the many bugs at launch, which seems a theme synonymous with the AC franchise at this point, they don’t seem to overpower the actual gameplay with the majority of bugs being purely funny rather than game-breaking. The only issues with gameplay are sometimes within dashing when fighting and parkour. Movement is sometimes clunky and Eivor is often struggling to climb up or down supposedly easy settings, sometimes leading to enemies being alerted of your presence. However, this is not too much of a problem as Valhalla never fails you for being noticed and bashing Saxon skulls as a Viking is one of the few things which feels just as good as stealthy assassinations.


As a character Eivor is excellent, being in my top 3 AC main protagonists of all time, unfortunately, many of the side characters do not share this wealth of characterization yet this isn’t really the games fault due to many characters only appearing for a few hours as you complete an area then never being seen again, resulting in development being difficult. Layla’s arc is completed well as she earns herself the spot of the best modern-day hero yet that is not too difficult since Desmond is the only one to have anywhere near as much game time and Desmond is just… Desmond. Enough said.


Overall, the game is amazing with the world being beautiful and the story being engaging and interesting. Valhalla provides players with many opportunities to embrace your inner Viking and go crazy within England slaughtering all in your path. A couple of bugs and movement annoyances are minuscule in comparison to everything the game does right. The dark brutal natural of Viking madness has never felt so good!!!

PlayStation 5 – Demon Souls

PlayStation 5 – Demon Souls

When announced back in June, the Demon Souls remake had fans in a frenzy, I mean what’s not to love about such a classic PS3 game being updated and adapted for modern technology, and, for the most part, it is a highly successful addition to the Souls franchise. 


The graphics are stunning and I would go so far to say this Demon soul is a visual masterpiece. From attack animations to ways the objects around you break, everything is perfect in this department. Settings leave you mesmerised and the flash of Dragons flying by as they breathe fire obstructing your way is always a spectacle.


 As someone who had never played any of the Souls games, I was excited to take on the challenge, which is synonymous with the Souls name and compared to games today, it definitely did not disappoint. I even pride myself on the fact I play almost all games on the hardest difficulty, however, Demon Souls was a different beast. Nevertheless, I pushed on, largely due to the fact my pride had been hurt after finding out it was the easiest game in the series, and soon learned the patterns and combinations needed to deal with the foot soldiers and bosses after many, many, MANY deaths. 


It was largely a great experience with both the puzzle aspect and combat being fun, yet I found the lack of checkpoints, which I later found was a decrease from the original, making the game slightly too intense for my liking yet many hardcore fans will welcome this change. I found boss fights to be a blast, with no one fight being anything like the other, yet felt that it could have had a more linear structure in terms of the difficulty. The soundscaping and audio are amazing, pulling you in and not letting go from its continuous intensity which when complemented by the visuals, make the game one of the best out on PS5 right now.

This certainly lives up to its reputation of being one of the hardest games on the market and it may be a little too frustrating for some gamers. The graphics are stunning on the PlayStation 5!!!
