This author has consistently praised the realistic portrayal of tennis in TopSpin 4. After more than a decade, we are thrilled to witness the release of TopSpin 2K25, which expands upon the success of its renowned predecessor. This gameplay video provides a comprehensive overview of the features discussed in our recent preview while also incorporating relevant footage to enhance understanding.

The series’ swing system sets it apart from arcade-style games like Virtua Tennis, as it requires players to charge up their shots in a different way. In order to succeed, timing is crucial, and fortunately, a new meter above your player will assist you in achieving that. Surfaces have their own distinct characteristics, such as clay, where you’ll experience a noticeable amount of sliding.

The game ensures that every player has a distinct set of animations, adding a touch of individuality to each competitor. The courts, found in all Grand Slams, possess a remarkable amount of individuality and charm. It is mentioned in the video that with each in-game season, players can expect a plethora of additional content, such as animation packs. This indicates that there will be plenty to anticipate even after the game’s initial release.

Mortal Kombat 1 seems to have fallen short of the explosive success of its predecessors, leaving NetherRealm and Warner Bros. questioning the reasons behind it. However, there is more post-release content on the horizon. Ermac is the next character in line, set to be released on April 16th for Kombat Pack owners and April 23rd for those who don’t have the pack.

The blurb showcases the impressive moveset of Ermac, demonstrating his teleportation, levitation, and the use of souls to overpower and slam opponents. In all honesty, this trailer is rather mild compared to the usual Mortal Kombat fare. However, the fatality at the end is sure to make you squirm in your seat.

The trailer also introduces Mavado, a new Kameo fighter who will be available to download in May as well. What are your thoughts on these latest additions? Engage in a spirited discussion in the comments section below.

The recent Stellar Blade demo has surprised many with its unexpected gameplay style. Rather than resembling Bayonetta or Devil May Cry, as fans anticipated, this PS5 exclusive actually bears a striking resemblance to Dark Souls. The developers at Shift Up have intentionally designed the difficulty of this game. However, they have also included options to provide a slightly easier experience for players who may require it.

In a recent interview on the PlayStation Blog, director Kim Hyung Tae and technical director Lee Dong Gi discuss the design philosophy behind Stellar Blade. According to them, the game aims to provide an enjoyable action experience for all players. However, the studio also wanted to challenge players beyond simply relying on aggressive attacks and combos.

The developers emphasize the significance of closely observing enemy movements and understanding the combat flow in order to respond effectively. By investing in the skill tree, you can improve your skills as the game progresses. Additionally, equipping powerful items like the exospine and gear will provide further boosts to your abilities. Players must carefully consider their battle style, as each piece of equipment offers unique performance. Whether they prefer a speed-focused approach to overpower enemies, an aggressive strategy to overwhelm them, or a cautious approach to navigate through enemy attacks, the choice is crucial.

Featuring a default mode that seems pretty standard, players have the flexibility to easily tweak the difficulty and take advantage of a story mode that offers action assistance whenever necessary. The setting in question effectively hampers an adversary’s mobility, granting you ample opportunity to familiarize yourself with its assault strategies. Additionally, it conveniently provides on-screen cues to indicate the optimal moments for executing parries and evasive maneuvers. “This feature enhances the game’s accessibility and enjoyment, appealing even to those who typically avoid action games.”

Stellar Blade also has a hard mode in store for players, adding an extra layer of challenge. Additionally, the developers have announced that a New Game+ mode will be released after the game’s launch, completely free of charge. As an added bonus, players can look forward to new outfits for the game’s protagonist, Eve. Are you committed to playing on the standard difficulty mode, or are you open to using Action Assist when faced with challenges? We would greatly appreciate your feedback in the comments section.
