Hey, doesn't everyone have even a slight backlog with the way games have been released?! I have more to play than ever right now. Not complaining one bit.

Certainly have a massive backlog! But after dabbling in a few, the feeling dawns: nothing kicks like a soulslike. Trying to finish your average open-world action game after Souls is like having to drink lite beer after a peyote bender. Just a bit underwhelming.

Mortal shell is an awesome game, truly in the spirit of Souls games, even the controls 🤙

Excellent game forsure! Perhaps the truest successor of DS1 in terms of cadence and that chunky armored sensation of combat.

How long does it take to reload after dying in the ps5 remake? That was the one thing that stopped me getting into Bloodborne - just couldn't cope with long delays between tries. If it's a couple of seconds it'll be much more playable. Is it that fast?

Oh yeah, load times are always under 5 seconds, I usually count 3. Messed around also with Nioh 2 on ps5, just the ps4 version playing backwards compatible, which loads likewise in under 5 seconds. Runs very well in the high framerate/variable resolution mode.
