The Resident Evil Village demo became available on PS4 and PS5 earlier today at 7pm CEST, so here is a full walkthrough with ray tracing activated - which unsurprisingly causes some framerate issues. This trial version is way too short to be sure that this new episode will be as great as the previous one, but at least it allowed us to see what to expect on terms of exploration and narrative sequences. Gunplay makes a brief appearance, but since handguns have never truly been excellent in terms of feedback in the series, there is nothing to write home about. Those who thought Ethan was to slow when it came to running or aiming will most likely feel the same while those who enjoyed RE7 will feel right at home. The next part of the demo will come out on April 25 on PS4 and PS5 and it will take us inside the castle this time.
Update: HDR video added, this time without ray tracing for a smoother experience.
Update 2: FPS analysis video added.

After our capital and the west coast of our beautiful country, we're now heading south, east and finally north so you get a glimpse of some of the places you may know or not. This will end our postcard coverage of the latest update, though we're aware we have left out Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands. Maybe in a few weeks...

Not only did Mortal Shell receive a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S update recently, but it didn't forget the PC version. The game now features NVIDIA's DLSS and Ray Tracing (on shadows only), as you can see in the following video we captured earlier today. Just so you know, we chose the DLSS performance mode.

Microsoft Flight Simulator remains a very demanding game even limiting the graphics to high and when using a resolution scaling setting set to 70%. We're taking you for a short flight in Paris, with a quick detour in the southern suburbs where I live in the very beginning. Oddly enough, I find the pop-in more visible now than it used to be at launch, but maybe that's just me getting old and forgetting such minor details...
Update: One video added, this time focusing on the west of France.

Outriders has been plagued with connectivity issues ever since it launched and it's a real shame because despite some flaws, it's really a fun game to play, even on one's own. We really enjoy building our character, modding our armor and weapons and choosing our skills so that it all fits our playstyle, there is a real sense of progression in that regard. Gunplay is also very satisfying and if it were not for the issues we sometimes encounter with the cover system and the fact that we're not too fond of the rolling movement, we wouldn't have anything to complain about when it comes to the gameplay mechanics. The story and game world may not be particularly original, but it's enough to keep us going despite the lackluster cutscenes and the dated character faces. That being said, there really is no excuse for the online problems the game has been having, especially for those who wish to play on their own. Something Game Pass owners might be able to accept for now, but that all those who purchased their own copy on day one understandably find it very difficult to accept. Let's hope the first big patch announced for next week will finally allow everyone to play normally.

Lets continue our video coverage of Oddworld: Soulstorm, this time with the PC version, which is exclusively available on the Epic Game Store for now. Inside you will find the cutscene which follows the end of the first section of the adventure followed by long videos showing the entirety of the second level. Enjoy!

Oddworld: Soulstorm is now available to all PS+ members on PS5, so we took this opportunity to record the beginning of the game. We're showing you the 60 fps introduction as well as the first level in which Abe has to escape the cave where he and his followers have been hiding since the end of the previous episode. Our stream system is back by the way, Blim must have missed a couple of emails warning him about the issue as he apparently wasn't aware of the problems we were having. Thankfully, everything is now working as it should, so thanks again for your patience.

Since our stream system is stil out of order and that I'm getting no answer as to whether or not it will eventually be fixed, here is an HDR video, which cannot be streamed with our player and must be downloaded. We recorded the Xbox Series X version as the game is included in the Game Pass, but the level shown here was not featured in the demo.

A couple of days ago we learned that a free update would allow us to play Ratchet & Clank with a butter smooth 60 fps framerate. We were told it would come in April but it became available yesterday, and to those who didn't know, it's still possible to get the game for free until today March 31 if you haven't already. It's be foolish not too considering how gorgeous it looks and how much better it plays now.
