Top 10 UK Games Chart: Devil May Cry 5 Finishes Top In Debut Week

about X hours ago from

Devil May Cry 5 has enjoyed a strong start on the UK physical sales chart, topping the all-format list in its debut week. For the week ending March 9, sales monitor Chart-Track says Capcom's hack-and-slash game displaces the previous No.1, Anthem, becoming the first in the series to top the chart since DmC in 2013.

Below Devil May Cry 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 finishes at No.2, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe claiming the final podium position at No.3. The week's only other new entry is Square Enix's stealth game Left Alive, which sneaks in at No.39.

We enjoyed Devil May Cry 5 here at GameSpot, with critic Matt Espineli awarding the game a 9/10. "DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors," he wrote in our Devil May Cry 5 review. "It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series' focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado. Rarely does the game stumble, consistently leveraging its spectacle and mechanical depth to push aside any small frustrations. All the while, the story exudes a charismatic charm that keeps you constantly intrigued as you're refining your skills. DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions."

Following Controversy, Spyro Reignited Trilogy Finally Adds Subtitles

about X hours ago from

Although reviews for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy were mostly positive, praising the remaster's faithful recreation of the originals' charm, the PS4 and Xbox One collection also attracted some criticism upon launch. Some people were angered by the game's lack of subtitles, which many gamers--for example, the hard of hearing--rely on to be able to enjoy games to their fullest.

Now, developer Toys for Bob has finally added complete subtitles to the three remastered games in a new update. The patch notes state the subtitles include "character headers to identify active speakers, succinct line splits for readability, [and] colored text for improved character association in most languages."

Publisher Activision had previously avoided directly addressing the Reignited Trilogy's lack of subtitles. At the time, it simply stated, "While there's no industry standard for subtitles, the studio and Activision care about the fans' experience especially with respect to accessibility for people with different abilities, and will evaluate going forward."

Sega Stops Sales Of Yakuza Spinoff Judgment In Japan After Actor Arrested For Alleged Cocaine Use

about X hours ago from

In a strange and surprising round of news, Sega has announced that it has stopped physical shipments and digital sales of the Yakuza spinoff Judgment in Japan following the arrest of actor Pierre Taki.

The actor was arrested for reportedly using cocaine, which apparently violates Japan's drug control laws. An official news release from Sega, translated by Gematsu, states, "Sega has received the arrest reports and are currently confirming the facts, but for the time being, we will voluntarily refrain from shipments and digital sales of [Judgment], as well as from things like posting on the product's homepage. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause for customers, as well as the parties involved."

Judgment, which is called Judge Eyes in Japan, launched in Japan back in December. The game is scheduled to arrive in America and Europe this June on PS4, but there is no word yet if that's still the plan given the controversy surrounding Taki.
