So instead of throttling the main page with a million and one game news stories, this is what we’re doing from now on. So, this week, we had Dark Souls Remastered, the Battlefield V reveal and the PS4 is selling like hotcakes.

Which is a phrase I never got? Are hotcakes good? Do they sell because they’re hot? Who knows?

We’ll start with Dark Souls Remastered, which was released a day ahead of the 25th May set date. The consensus seems to be that it’s a £30 paywall for better textures, a buttery smooth framerate and a revived multiplayer scene. However, with that comes a bunch of problems that plagued the first release.

Hackers have been reported in the game already, using exploits that were present over 5 years ago in the first release. Oh well.

Next up we have Battlefield V, which will be set in World War 2. The trailer has fans somewhat divided, given the weird art direction it has taken. While the trailer for Battlefield 1 was somewhat set in its tone, this looks a bit livelier. And a whole lot less believable as a World War game.

With E3 just around the corner, we’re probably gonna get some more gameplay in the next few days and some live streams during the event.

Lastly, we have the previously mentioned hotcake esc PS4.

The PlayStation 4 has been selling incredibly well, with hardware sales jumping up a further 15%. The most popular edition currently is the PS4 Pro 1 TB God of War limited edition, which topped charts in April.

God of War has seen continued success critically and from the general public. Critics praised the game for growing up a bit since its last entry, with Kratos actually growing as a character. You can read all about that here.

Enjoy your weekend!
