DAY 12:  THE RACE TO THE FINISH

I had my doubts at the start, and I’m still slightly dubious about the enemy design, but I’ve begun to massively enjoy Dark Souls II – every day I’m wondering how fast I can get my other work done in order to sit down and get it on.

After rinsing through Heide’s Tower of Flame I’ve unlocked an alternate route out of Majula that leads to Huntsman’s Copse – the beta area. I’ve got such amazing gear by this point that the raggedy little enemies have no chance, and fall like skittles to my +2 Black Knight Halberd. I summon in some dudes to make things more interesting (for me) and end up blitzing through a skeleton boss, a mines section, and then a strange kind of miniature Sen’s Fortress. Though the last seems like a tough area, nothing can stop me now. I don’t slang or bang, I just smoke poison snake queens like it ain’t no thang.

Three new screenshots have surfaced for BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2, showing Rapture through Elizabeth’s eyes.

The images, which you can see below, reveal new areas of the undersea city that we’re set to explore in the concluding chapter to Infinite when it releases next week. Previously, creator Ken Levine revealed just how long it’ll take you to play through the DLC.

Check them out below:

Last week we got a chance to speak to Elizabeth actress Courtnee Draper, where she talked about what we should expect from the final bit of the DLC, as well as her feelings on reprising her role for a BioShock movie.

A list of non-functioning (for now) links point towards the kind of rental options users can expect from the PlayStation Now streaming service. MP1st and PSNStores spotted links for 1-day, 7-day, and 30-day rentals of Atlus’ romantic puzzler Catherine, and when PSNStores tried to purchase one of the rentals, it found “Catherine PS Now” in its transaction history.

The links follows the clues laid out on a PS Now concept image published by Gaikai (via VG247) earlier in the week. Certain tiles displayed low prices for PS3 games – Uncharted 3 at $5, Far Cry 3 at $6 – perhaps an indication of the service’s base prices for rentals.

PlayStation Now is expected to see a full rollout sometime this summer, letting users rent games individually or pay for a subscription to the service. Developed by Gaikai, who Sony acquired for $380 million two years ago, PS Now lets users stream PS1, PS2, and PS3 games on PS4, PS3, Vita, Bravia TV, and other unannounced devices.

Two games were announced today via the PlayStation Blog, Race the Sun from Flippfly, and Final Horizon from Eiconic Games. Both games will release on PS4 and Vita, with Race the Sun also coming to PS3.

Race the Sun, the crowdfunded futuristic, procedurally generated racing/action game currently available on Steam, will be coming to PlayStation this summer. Flippfly co-founder Forest San Filippo said, “There’s just something about going fast. The desire for speed seems to be ingrained in our very nature. Race the Sun is our attempt to distill that desire into its basic form — to strip away all pretense and let players experience pure, brutal speed.”

DAY TWO: THE ENDLESS KNIGHTS

Refreshed and eager, I’ve barely pressed start on the title screen and already I’m feeling much better about Dark Souls II. One bad boss does not a bad game make, and now I’ve got an Estus flask and can level up I’m stoked to start exploring.

Majula is your kind of home base for Dark Souls II, and it’s where you have to go to talk to the Oirish Emerald Herald. She’s a bit of a bore, to be honest, with none of the mystery of the Maiden in Black and a wearying line in saying “more souls, bigger souls” – but she also has an exceptionally cute voice so I’m going to give her a pass.
