    Demon's Souls

    Welcome to the world of panicky flailing at a crystal lizards and usually only hitting air. My early encounters were like a Benny Hill chase scene that ends in bitter disappoinment. There's a set number of times the lizards appear, whether you kill them or not. Once they're gone, they're gone and you'll never be able to upgrade that weapon you liked. Oh the stress!

    Definitely not true. It's always in a fiery tunnel, you've just missed it.

    There's a bit of a murder mystery in the Nexus, it's like a soap opera. It all hinges on your actions and it's possible to finish the game with most, if not all, of the characters alive.

    You've missed a flaming long sword, really good against fire weak enemies. One can be found fairly early on, I think it's 2-2. Are you talking to people back at the Nexus? It was a long time ago, but I think people you meet or rescue in the game eventually turn up there, and they offer different services. Once you've finished the game it's worthwhile looking at this web site http://demonssouls.wikidot.com It lists every object you can make of find in the game.

    Demon's Souls

    I love how this game, more than any of the souls games, requires you to level up multiple weapon types; slashing, piercing and bashing. I remember the mine level, I think it was 2.1, where you come across the miners. I'd just finished the opening level and was full of new found confidence in my scimitar , I felt I could take on any thing. Anyway you see these miners and think 'they look easy' and swipe at them. There follows a hollow thunking sound and 1 point of damage, he then swipes at you with his pick axe and you die. Multiple times. It turns out that seemingly useless stiletto blade, that you'd decided to get rid of at the earliest opportunity, now does a good amount of damage to these armour skinned miners. I was hooked from then on. As fantastic as Bloodborne is, I think I completed the whole game with the same saw blade and the latest dark souls seemed to have given up entirely on damage type, just pick your favourite weapon and stick with it.

    Your comment about the spider boss brought back memories of what made demon souls so special. Most of the bosses can be beaten by tactics and carefull use of the environment. Unlike dark souls3 which by that point had progressed to a point of just putting you and a boss in a big rectangular room. I get much more satisfaction from working out that if I stood in this hollow his killer horizontal sweep goes over my head, or if I stand in this archway his sword gets tangled in the stone work. Just learning detailed timings of boss attacks and animation tells seems like work, no real skill, just an investment in time. And back to that spider boss. It's one of the easiest in the game if you know where to stand.

    Happy! New SYFY series - Christopher Meloni

    Really enjoyed that, I was hooked from the Brilliant opening. Christopher Meloni really plays crazy well, he reminded me of an ultra violent version of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar. Anyway,it's difficult to say any more without giving away any surprises, but give it a go.

    Don't let ResEvil 7 be the first game you try, it could ruin your evening. It's one for when you've got your VR legs. It's worthwhile downloading all the demo packs from the store tonight, they're a good place to start.

    I think the free Jackal Assault VR experience has the most impressive looking cockpit, is the easiest to fly and dumps you right into the action from the start. It's usually the first cockpit game I demo to newcomers. Gameplay wise it's not the best, but it really looks good.

    How about VR Tumble? It's surprisingly similar to Tumble ,and there's a demo of it on the store. Statik is very good as well, no danger of VR sickness.

    It's a fantastic game. The closest thing to portal you can get without actually having anything to do with portal or its game play. That makes no sense, but it will when you play it.

    Definitely keep. Three of the games are really enjoyable and the shark cage is one of the best ways of demoing VR to other people.

    WipEout Omega Collection - VR Update out now

    What a fantastic game. The scale, the spectacle, the ease of cornering; the game is so much easier now. Lots of little things, like the cannon was always a weapon you dumped as soon as you got it in the 2D version,it was boring and weak, but in VR it's so satisfying to use, its been transformed. It's now my favourite and it's the earthquake bomb that's dull to use. I've got some advice for those who are feeling sick, but you may look like an idiot. Use pilot view and then lean into the corners as if you were on a motorbike, lean as if you're dodging bullets in super hot. Really aggressively go for it and keep your focus point quite a long way along the track. I think sitting still with only tiny head movements as your twisting and turning is sending conflicting, sickness inducing signals. Also my lap times have plummeted since doing this, it makes it much easier to remember the track and when to turn hard.
  14. The film doesn't spoil the books at all, they're radically different. I felt reading the books gave the same feelings as watching the early series' of lost, except it has a proper ending and all the surreal goings on in book one all come together and make sense by book three.
