I've been posting and following Focus Home Interactive and Deck13's The Surge for a while now. The first E3 impressions, if I remember rightly, showed a world and combat inspired by mechanics of Dark Souls. With the release of Zero Dawn on PS4 I see some similarities in the setting now but the recent CGI trailer offers a few hints on the upcoming title aimed for launch on May 16th.
I have never played a Tour de France title yet nor do I have the slightest notion or understanding as to the ins and outs of competitive cycling. So when le Tour de France landed on my door mat I had two thoughts running through my head, it was either going to be a bugger of a game to master and get to grips with or it would be so simple so as to leave me mindlessly bored. So it was that after a mercilessly short install I sat down to sample the latest iteration of this franchise and honestly I was not expecting much. I was expecting it to be a button mashing extravaganza reminiscent of Track & Field. I was wrong.
