Shadow of Loot Box is based on an interesting premise that intends to satirize some questionable elements of the contemporary games industry. The problem is this idea does not quite come to fruition and after a promising opening stage, the experience quickly comes down to a dull, over-simplistic, underperforming gameplay and in the end, this FPS with RPG elements turns out to be a rather lacklustre effort with few attractive points.

With lots of content and some good cutscenes, it's not a groundbreaking game but it's appealing and it could be even more fun if its online multiplayer was not affected by cases of lag.

It may feel too simple at certain moments but overall, Detective Pikachu proves to be a fun and inclusive game that can even find a place with players who are not fans of Pokémon in the first place.

Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon do not deserve to be labelled as mere improvements or buildups over their predecessors. The likely last Pokémon games to be released on the 3DS are the epitome of Nintendo's hallmark adventure on the handheld system thanks to their immense content, audiovisual experience and overall sense of adventure. An absolute must have set of games for all owners of a 3DS.

Parascientific Escape: Crossing at the Farthest Horizon may not be the richest visual novel ever made but it's interesting and competent at what it does, mostly thanks to its multiple endings plot and all the right elements to appeal to fans of the genre. It doesn't turn out to be a masterpiece, as it could feature more puzzles and correct some of its writing mistakes but it's certainly an interesting choice in the 3DS catalog.

5 / 10 - Drancia Saga
Aug 7, 2017

Drancia Saga is simple, fun and accessible, featuring an 8-bit style visual environment and some well implemented RPG elements. If only the same could be said for the overall quality of the conversion to the 3DS, its use of the console's capacities, lifespan and its price tag, compared to the lack of it in the original mobile format, this would be a highly recommended game.

Featuring an interesting plot with plenty of motivating puzzles, good characters, several alternative endings and overall, an enjoyable experience, Parascientific Escape - Gear Detective is a visual novel that will appeal both to fans and to newcomers alike. The game's qualities certainly stand up against its rather low audiovisual production values and being sold at a low price only makes it more appealing as a quality game that's worthy of a player's time.

7 / 10 - Yo-Kai Watch 2
Mar 31, 2017

Yo-Kai Watch 2 builds up on the original game and delivers what is expected of a sequel. It's full of content that is well likely to push the game's lifespan into over one hundred hours of gameplay for the most ambitious players, it includes a very welcome online multiplayer feature and an interesting combat system, even if it's not the most thrilling system ever designed. Its similarities to the original game are many and those already familiar with it will find the first hours rather uninteresting but Yo-Kai Watch 2 is a competent and entertaining sequel worthy of the time of any JRPG fan.

While using easily recognizable characters from popular cartoon series can prove to be a successful formula, it's hard to see how that will benefit Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers. Its gameplay has virtually no points that stand out from an overall feeling of mediocrity and the lack of features of this title only make the selling price seem even more disproportionate for what is a game that offers no redeeming factors.

5 / 10 - Tetraminos
Nov 10, 2016

While it doesn't really innovate or go beyond the limits of the original's gameplay, it works well enough and its local multiplayer will provide some hours of fun. Pity that it doesn't have anything else to stand for itself and that the lack of online modes as well as its long loading times make this a less fun game than it could.
