GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One Switch

Blasphemous is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One and we're happy to share 2 long videos of the game on the first 2 systems we just mentioned. As you'll see, the main difference between both versions lies in the longer loading times (whenever there's a dark screen to load the scene scene) on Switch, but it's really not that big a deal in the end. Plus, if you decide to play Blasphemous on Nintendo's console, you'll be able to enjoy it nomad, which works very well with this title. Although we were sent early codes last week, it's been a bit difficult to reach the end of the game due to the number of other releases we have to cover this week, but we've seen the first third of the adventure on Switch and we're hooked. With its mix of Dark Souls (praying at altars replenishes your life and vials but enemies respawn as a result, death means gaining guilt which comes with a reduction of your power bar, shortcuts, art style, combat) and Castlevania (platforming sequences, puzzles, interconnected world, etc.), this game is a really engaging one to say the least and it doesn't hurt that it looks so great (the animations are amazing!). It's obviously challenging, but from what we've seen, its mechanics never are to blame, all you have to do is to "git good".

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (1 Day ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (2 Days ago)
