Russian press this week

Dark Souls II and Titanfall dominate this week’s Russian press coverage. Both games got raving reviews from Russian media, both are currently sitting at 92% at Kritikanstvo.

Some media outlets, late to the party, are still writing about South Park: Stick of Truth, it still has 89% at Kritikanstvo.

Russian gaming press is usually not that different from Western gaming press, so you won’t find something notably “Russian” about this week’s reviews – they’re praising Dark Souls II unforgiving difficulty, Titanfall’s accesibility and South Park’s humor.  One notable extempt is IGN Russia’s review of Stick of Truth. It is written in pseudo Imperial Russian language for some reason, probably trying to be funny.

Russian media also unleashed wave of Alien: Isolation articles after preview event in Moscow (Gmbox, Kanobu, Kitchen Riots). Again, nothing unusual here: everyone just loves new installment of classic franchise.

Press continues to discuss ArcheAge beta in Russia since claims it to be the biggest MMO launch on CIS territories. Kanobu writes a critical report on ArcheAge, claiming to be subscription-based game and time sink, while unsurprisingly loves it, giving it 9.5/10.
