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?

After some time I decided to go back and play some classic games I haven't played in years on the PS1. Instead of doing the usual and relecting on the usuals like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, or Silent I decided to go back and reflect on the Syphon Filter trilogy. I loved these games when I was younger (SF3 not so much, but I will get into that with the review of that game later) but do I still love these games after almost a decade of playing them? Only time will tell with the reviews. Now.. Let's start with the original Syphon Filter. After playing this game after all these years, it still impresses me. This title was made for the people who complained that MGS was too slow and plodding to be fun and it clearly shows. Right of the bat, the game comes screaming at you with action as your fighting on city streets with terrorists deploying any weapons you can find. Presentation wise, the cutscenes are awful featuring some bad character modeling with some horrid lip syncing to boot. But that all quickly forgotten as you begin playing. The game is played via third person, and it works really smoothly on the PS1. The auto targeting can be finicky but once you get the hang of it, you will dropping unnamed mooks with little effort. For once the controls are mapped out great, and doesn't have any delay in them that most PS1 games had back in that time.  I always thought the PS1 was bad at doing third person games(Deathtrap Dungeon, I'm looking at you!) but this game is impressive overall, it just feels right when you play it. The graphics in the game look good still to this day. You still get the trademark PS1 qwirks of warping textures, clipping, and framerate stutters. But overall the package is really tight and while the framerate does stutter at points, it only happens when there is a lot going. Pretty much through out the game, it will maintain a fast framerate. Some voice acting troubles aside the sound in this game is pretty good. It features some retro style music that would feel at home in a Spy thriller from the 70s or 80s.So overall, do I still love this game? Yes i do! after almost a decade since first playing it Syphon Filter is still fun, and one of the best PS1 games ever made. I highly recomned grabbing it off the PS store to play on PS3 or track down a actual copy. You won't be disappointed!     But Butt
