Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

What do these ratings mean?

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect from Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection. The last of this franchise that I played was Tekken 3 on my old Playstation (I loved it by the way.) I was wondering what Namco could do differently with such a concept as a fighting game. The I played it and found out...

The most noticeable thing for me was the huge range of fighters to choose from at the character select screen...  I didn't know some of them (because I never played Tekken 4,) but fans would probably know most of them. However the two newbies are Lili, a primp and proper street fighter (now there's a paradox) and Sergei Dragunov, a ruthless Russian army commander, who uses Commando Sambo, a modern martial art developed by the Soviet Union. All the other regulars are there, all with a huge range of moves to master.

Now to the game modes. Arcade offers unlimited opponents to fight against, while your character rises through fighting ranks and gradually begins to face tougher, smarter opponents. Story mode allows you to follow each individual character's story, and the reason they entered the tournament. After beating Jinpachi Mishima, an impressive looking cut scene is presented.
Tekken Dojo mode allows you to rise through the ranks of a wide range of dojos, which can get quite difficult in the later levels. There are also Attack modes (Time Attack, Gold Rush and Survival) and Bonus games that need to be unlocked. A particular highlight is Tekken Bowl, which results in money for how efficiently you can knock down pins (amusingly, using Yoshimitsu in this mode engages a targeting reticle in his mask, making him a very accurate bowler.) Money earned from any of these modes can be used to unlock costumes and/or cut-scenes from characters that you can't be bothered using or don't like. The costumes, strangely, are actually quite entertaining, like Forest Law balancing a bowl of noodles on his head or Lee Chaolan in full Tekken Force armour.

Overall, this game is an excellent addition to any PSP enthusiasts collection, and will keep you entertained for a very long time.
