GSY Preview PS5 PC

We have been playing Concord for a few days now, a few days ahead of the open beta. We brought you back two gameplay videos but we couldn't use the usual equipment to do so, which means they're not as high quality as they should. They're also 1080p only so we hope you'll still be able to get a good idea of the game.

The indie scene is still very much active during the summer vacation and SCHiM will be available in a few days on PC, Mac and consoles. In the game, you will play as the soul and spirit of a young child, who will quickly become a young adult. Each living being, object or thing is supposed to have one and sadly, you will soon be separated from the human being you belong to and you will have to find them. In Nils Slijkerman's and Ewoud van der Werf's title, this soul is represented by a shadow and it can only move from one to another, making it a chill platforming game where you have to move through shadows. It clearly won't appeal to everyone, and to be honest, though very pleasant to play, we haven't been fully taken by the concept. Art is great, gameplay mechanics work well, but that's about it for us. It shouldn't deter you from trying the demo to make up your own mind about it though. The only thing we wish were different is the way the camera is handled. We would rather it were assigned to the right analog stick instead of the right and left bumpers, which doesn't feel that convenient in the end.

Antro won't be available until next year but a short demo of the game has appeared on Steam and we gave it a try. As you'll see, Gatera Studio's title is a dystopian cinematic platformer in which music and rythm seem to be very important. If you don't play on PC or simply don't have the time to try the demo, check out our video inside.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess also made an appearance yesterday and it came witj a pretty nice surprise as a demo of the game is now available to all on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. As a result, you don't even need us to make up your mind about this rather peculiar title.

At yesterday's CAPCOM NEXT, the Japanese publisher announced that Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster will be released on September 19 2024 and will include some graphical and gameplay improvements. The game will run on the RE Engine at 4K/60fps and it will be possible to move around while aiming, among other things.

Even when keeping in mind that the Switch cannot be compared to current gen consoles, the Beyond Good & Evil - 20th Anniversary Edition port to Nintendo's console is pretty disappointing. In docked mode, it's hard not to see the differences in terms of image quality: textures are much lower res, reflections and shadows aren't as polished and there seems to be a constant judder when moving the camera around, which makes the game less smooth than it should at 30 fps. Also note that there are occasional frame drops during combat. Portable mode looks crisper, even more so if you own the OLED version of the console, but framerate doesn't feel that smooth either. We haven't seen the game on Steam Deck but it's most certainly the better version for those willing to play this on a handheld device. It's a bit of a shame as the other versions we've seen look really good overall.

MEGATON MUSASHI W: WIRED will have taken ITS time before reaching our western shores, since Level-5's game was originally released in Japan in 2021, after being announced five years earlier. It then became a Freemium game in the archipelago for some time before making its return in April 2024, in a paid version including all the content added until then. That's when we were finally able to discover this hack and slash robot game with a strong emphasis on story, along the same lines as what we can find in visual novels. The result is clearly worthy of your time, provided you are a fan of this very particular genre and do not fear the inevitable redundancy of the gameplay. The story is catchy, the visuals are quite nice, and the collabs with well-known franchises such as Mazinger Z, Grendizer (which was just added this week for free), Getter Robo, Chōdenji Robi Combattler V and Voltes V make it even more appealing. If you're curious to discover the first hour of the adventure (with a few cuts, however), check out our long gameplay video. Note that the game benefits from the Steam sales that started yesterday and can therefore be acquired for €24.99 instead of €49.99. The Switch version is also entitled to the same price drop, but if you play on PlayStation consoles, you will have to pay full price (for the moment at least).

After the success that Myst was back in 1993, its sequel Riven, which came out four years later, had quite a yardstick to measure up. Overall, it was just as warmly welcome as the first game, and some might even said it achieved its goal to raise the bar with flying colors. Many players found it way too difficult to complete though, but at the end of the day, it became another classic adventure game by Cyan. Twenty seven years later, the original studio is back with a true remake that not only revamps all the visuals, but also features new puzzles and even some variation in terms of progression and events. It's still a very slow-paced game, with some necessary backtracking, the obligation to take real notes (or screenshots) to progress, and in this regard, it's very faithful to the original. Now obviously some people will find it too difficult compared to what we're used to seeing these days in the video game industry, but if what you're looking for is a good challenge, this is clearly one of he best remakes out there.

Now that Beyond Good & Evil - 20th Anniversary Edition is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC, we realize it's the third time in twenty-one years we have covered the game's release. Back in 2004, BlimBlim shared his thoughts about it on Xboxyde, then in 2011 I was in charge of the HD remake and today, here I am again with this 20th Anniversary Edition. Despite its age, it's been great playing this updated version, though it still looks very similar to the original. Textures, shadows and lighting effects have been improved, more than twenty achievements/trophies have been added, as well as a gallery of artworks retracing the story of the development of the game and a Speedrun mode. Some will say it's not enough and they'd rather have a full remake, and sure we'd have loved to get one too, but Ubisoft has clearly made a few efforts to please the fans. Now only you can say if it's worth putting your money down again.

#BLUD clearly is an homage to all the 90s and early 2000s animated series from Cartoon Network, but it's also inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is however quite a polarizing game. On the one hand, its art style and 2D animations are simply superb, making look as if you're actually playing a cartoon. Humor is also in perfect keeping with you you'd expect from this type of world. That said, it still has a bunch of issues when it comes to gameplay. Using the dodge roll can be quite frustrating as it seems there isn't any invincibility frame. Quite early in the game, you're asked to roll and then immediately press the attack button to launch a sort of Dragon Punch, but it is quite tedious to use because of the precision it requires. If you roll onto an enemy, you get hit and so it cancels your attack, which can lead to some frustrating moments. Hit boxes also needs a bit more work as it often feels controls and combat lack the necessary precision to be fully enjoyable. We're pretty sure some of these problems can be addressed in future patches, so we hope the team will pay attention to some of the feedback as they are really a talented bunch, which is all the more true when you consider that they have managed to make a nod to Scott Bakula in the game.
