Resident Evil 4 Remake Review (PS5)

I approached my review of the Resident Evil 4 remake with caution. I thought the remake of RE2 was an excellent modern translation of the original. However, the Resident Evil 3 remake was lacking in content and showed little regard for the original. So I was wondering which direction the remake of RE4 would take.

Fortunately, this is Capcom’s crowning achievement. It raises the bar for remakes in the same way that the original Resident Evil 4 did for the action-horror genre. Most importantly, i

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Review (PS5)

I’m always down for a good Souls-like and was thrilled to hear that Team Ninja was developing Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. I recently replayed Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2, and I was ready to get back into action. Fortunately, though this game has some flaws and peculiarities, most fans of the genre will find it satisfying.

Wo Long takes place in Three Kingdoms era China. The Yellow Turban Rebellion is in full force, and you take the role of a simple militiaman defending a village against a horde of

PlayStation Commercial Logo Sound Creator Tohru Okada Has Died

If you’ve ever seen a PlayStation commercial, you’ve heard the iconic sound accompanying the logo. For almost the entirety of the platform’s existence, this note has been associated with it. Sadly, the man who composed it, Tohru Okada, died of heart failure on February 14 at age 73.

Ukraine is Asking for an Atomic Heart Ban From Sony, Microsoft, and Valve

Ukraine wants Atomic Heart banned and will send an official request to Sony, Microsoft, and Valve to pull the game off their storefronts. The country wants its distribution limited because the developer of the game, Mundfish, allegedly has ties to Russian state-owned energy corporation Gazprom. Additionally, when asked, the developer hasn’t outright denounced the invasion of Ukraine, which leads many to believe Mundfish either supports it or is ambivalent about it.

Atomic Heart Save Room Cartoon Features Racist Caricature

A cartoon featured in Atomic Heart save rooms briefly features a racist caricature. In it, a wolf is chasing a hare through a museum and accidentally hits a statue which presumably is meant to depict an African tribesman. Although the scene is brief, it’s shocking that it somehow made it into a game in 2023.

Note: We’ve posted the image of caricature below for informational purposes. PSLS doesn’t condone or support any racist material.

The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 Return in this Month's PS Plus Classics Lineup

The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 are coming to PS Classics later this month. These two classic RPGs launched toward the end of the PS1’s lifespan and represent a culmination of that generation’s game design. It’s been over a decade since the two received a re-release on PSN (which isn’t easy to access these days), and this marks the first time they’re available for modern consoles.

Bobby Kotick Stays Activision Blizzard CEO if Microsoft Deal Blocked - Report

According to reports, Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, will reportedly keep his position even if Microsoft’s proposed acquisition is blocked by regulators or falls through. Kotick’s fate at the gaming giant has been in question since talk of the purchase began, with some sources saying he’ll leave, while others have stated Microsoft intends to retain him. If these new reports are to be believed, Activision Blizzard wants to keep the status quo if the deal is dropped.

Hogwarts Legacy Review (PS5)

Hogwarts Legacy promises to take fans inside the halls of Hogwarts in a 1:1 scale experience for the first time. This premise is something that Harry Potter fans have spent years hoping would one day be realized, making it one of the most-hyped games of the decade, and a tall order for Avalanche Software — a team most known for its ill-fated Disney Infinity series.

For the most part, Avalanche has nailed it. Hogwarts Legacy is the closest we’ve been to living the life of a student at the titula

Dead Space Remake Review (PS5)

After being burned by Resident Evil 3, I’m wary of any survival horror remake. So, I initially didn’t have high hopes for the Dead Space remake when it was announced. However, as EA Motive revealed more, I found my optimism rising. The studio stated multiple times that its prime directive was to be respectful of the source material, and it turned out better than I had hoped.

Note this review is aimed at readers who have played the original Dead Space. For a review from someone who didn’t experi

Hogwarts Legacy Will Take 40 Hours to Beat, 100+ Hours to 100%

You can expect to spend a significant amount of time exploring the vast, magical world of Hogwarts Legacy. In fact, it might take longer to beat it than many players anticipated.

He estimates you can expect to spend 40 hours or more on a first-time playthrough of the main story alone. However, if you choose to complete all of the side quests and expl

PSA: Dead Space Remake Leaks Reveal Almost Entire Playthrough

Gameplay of the Dead Space Remake has leaked, so those wanting to avoid getting the changes and tweaks Movie Studio has made to the original spoiled should be vigilant.

Much of Dead Space Remake’s campaign has leaked, but EA seems like it’s on the b

The Last of Us HBO Series Opening Was Originally Much More Boring

The opening to The Last of Us HBO series was almost a lot more boring. Since most people who haven’t played the game aren’t intimately familiar with how the cordyceps fungus works, the show needed a way to spell that out quickly. It was decided to do that as an aside at the very beginning of the series, but the best way to do it was up in the air until nearly the end of filming.
