“Review in 2 minutes” is a new feature in which we present to you shorter bite-sized reviews of games we played, and loved.
3D Dot Game Heroes is one of those relatively hidden PS3 gems that every action/adventure game fan should try. It was made in 2010 by From Software, the makers of the Dark Souls series. Originally, the following trailer single-handedly sold me to the game!
I’m a great fan of Dark Souls for so many reasons I can’t even quote them without making a huge paragraph about it, so if you’re actually interested in my opinion, you can read my review of it HERE. When Dark Souls was announced for PC, it also brought another piece of news that kindled my heart: the extra content would be available for PS3 users as DLC. Of course that was the only excuse I needed to get back into the game, and while preparing a new character (or in my case four) for the new challenges to come, I spent about another 100 hours playing this game, and that’s pre-DLC. Obviously, I was super excited about it, but what did I actually think? Read on and find out!
If you recall, back in April, we told you about Demon’s Souls servers being shut down this month. However, due to complaints from fans, the servers will be kept up for the foreseeable future. Atlus’ VP of Marketing and Sales, Tim Pivnicny, had this to say:
“We’re incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon’s Souls online experience will persist for a while longer. While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon’s Souls. For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game’s amazing online experience, we’re happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon’s Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time.”
This means, if you had not picked this up and wanted to be able to play the title online, the server shutdown will not be a problem. Check after the jump for the whole press release.
The Day is finally upon us when Demon’s Souls’ servers will be shut down. No more extensions by Atlus. May 31st will be the last time you can invade someone’s game and destroy them right before their boss fight. Atlus VP of Sales had this to say in an official statement sent to Game Informer:
