One of the best Warriors games thanks to a good variety of characters with cool and visually impressive movesets. The classic Fire Emblem Warriors mechanics match perfectly with the Warriors formula, adding challenge and strategy to the mix. Sadly the game lacks iconic character from many games including fan favourites Roy and Ike.

7 / 10.0 - Gundam Versus
Oct 9, 2017

A good Gundam game. While it is an interesting mecha fighting game, it lacks to offer something else. A must for Gundam fans, but not so appealing for a more casual audience.

A story full of the plot twist that made the franchise so iconic. The class trial system is the best so far and developers improved every aspect of the game as well. Whether some people will like some of the most arguable decisions that the story takes, it´s no doubt it is a great game and a great sequel to this long running series.

Mask of Truth is a direct sequel from Mask of Deception. It has many upgrade in combat, apart from that is more of the same from the first game. If you are playing this is only because you liked the first one. A nice game that takes its time and it's rewarding.

Life is Strange Before the Storm feels like a true prequel to the original game, even though we don't have time travel abilities this time around. While character developments are interesting, this first chapter is unclear whether the journey will be better than the destination considering we already know how their fates will end.

7 / 10.0 - Warriors All-Stars
Sep 5, 2017

This game is a tribute to both the franchises it integrates and the musou gameplay. Koei Tecmo with Omega Games weren't scared to go all out in the exaggeration of this kind of battles. While the story is interesting enough to serve as a string to mix all the characters, the new movesets and special attacks are a blast to just beat thousand of enemies. It´s a shame you can't play multiplayer of any kind.

One of the best One Piece games out there. Even though it is a 3DS game, the jump to next gen consoles fitted perfectly. The action/adventure gameplay with simple combat mechanics fits the Straw Hat Pirate better than one vs one or musou. Plus, the original story feels like a whole new anime arc.

7 / 10.0 - Theseus
Aug 2, 2017

Theseus is the first “big” PS VR action game where you see the character with a fixed camera. It's interesting to see a game like this instead of a first person view. This gives the game a whole different perspective from the usual VR game. It's simple but it's charming in innovative way. A good game if you like mythological stories with bizarre plot twists.

Making the exact same game with brand new graphics is something no one did like this before. The game is a good idea to re-live the game as you remember, and it sets the debate if the gameplay should be adapted as well or not.

A strange not-so-good twist for a good saga. Even though Valkyria Revolution aims to be a whole new game, it's hard not to compare it to the original trilogy. Even though it has an interesting story and a nice "hack´n slash" gameplay, the game's pace is slow and gameplay is too easy and not at all strategic.

8 / 10.0 - Chroma Squad
May 31, 2017

Chroma Squad is a surprisingly good indie game. While it´s tactical RPG gameplay manage to keep the ideas simple with some original mechanics, the best part of the game is the in-between-fights micromanagement part where we need to make lots of decisions to have the best tv show.

Another entry in the Warriors franquice. A nice way to learn about the history of Japan while button mashing our stress away. More of the same for the people who likes the formula, too bad it lacks multiplayer.

Utawarerumono is a good tactic RPG game. However it's main component lies in the story. You could describe the game as a tale with some battles to go through the chapters. Sadly the game is pointed to a very specific target making it unappealing to a general audience.

7 / 10.0 - Outlast II
May 5, 2017

Outlast II changes its focus on the “clasic” terror formula that worked well in the first game, for a more psychological twisted atmosphere popularized by P.T. While the places you go through and the jump scares are good, the gameplay can´t keep up to make a great experience. An average game that could have been much better with minor changes.

Another Telltalte game. Another case where more of the same is good. Guardians of the Galaxy takes a great approach to the franchise introducing us to an already formed team fighting against a big villain like Thanos in the first chapter. Same framerate issues as always but this time a great soundtrack makes up for that.

7 / 10.0 - Flywrench
Apr 7, 2017

A new minimalistic game from the creators of Nidhogg. It´s simple and effective, if your played Flappy Bird you´ll know how your character moves. You need to pass through color based barriers that depends on your specific move in a Outland kind of way.

Mass Effect Andromeda is a good game. There are many new thing to explore for old fans like the jump/dash ability, it´s small open world style maps and the new version of the mako. For newcomers the core formula of Mass Effect is still intact. However the game can't surpass its predecessors only because they were superb games and this one isn´t. It´s a nice experience but not one you should play on day 1.

Finally every game of the series leading to Kingdom Hearts III is on one platform. There is nothing new to these games from the collections individual release on PS3, but Kingdom Hears 1, 2 and Birth by Sleep are great games regardless of where or when you play them. Plus you have one more game and two big cinematic modes that covers the story of the DS adventures.

Probably the most unique graphic novel in a videogame. Both games have a superb storytelling and challenging escape room puzzles. The game has multiple endings but manages to makes all of them useful and important thanks to it's amazing plot twist. Be careful, you might learn a thing or two while playing The Nonary Games.

One of the best visual novels series out there. A gameplay similar to the Ace Attorney games that achieves it’s own identity. A great storyline filled with violence, intrigue and amazing plot twist.
