7 / 10.0 - Conarium
Feb 12, 2019

Conarium offers a game with a extremely simple gameplay that relies completely on its narrative aspect. In spite of some flaws, this reimagination of a lovecraftian world is visually stunning and able to catch the players' attention from the very beginning and retain it through the whole game.

7 / 10.0 - FutureGrind
Jan 22, 2019

FutureGrind is an awesome take on the platforming genre that, despite some flaws, results in a fun and challenging experience from the beginning to the end.

Sundered comes to Switch and Xbox One with the Eldritch Edition, a revision of the game that doesn't include lots of changes but it does some fine additions like local co-op. If you liked Sundered back in 2017, this is a good excuse to come back to it in a brand new platform!

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 13, 2018

GRIS is a true piece of art because it isn't only beautiful, but also meaningful. A game with excepcional design that, despite some minor flaws, will definitely get to your heart and make you feel. This is the closest to poetry that any videogame has ever come!

The Bearded Ladies has created an impressive game that is able to make use of the XCOM formula and take it to the next level adding some exploration and stelath mechanics. The result is a fun, inteligent and original videogame that exceeds every expectation.

7.5 / 10.0 - Cattails
Dec 2, 2018

Cattails is a big surprise. A game that initially looks extremely simple but that deep down hides lots of mechanics, systems and high quality content that can keep us playing for dozens of hours. Despite some flaws, it's an easy-to-recommend experience!

5 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 21, 2018

Fallout 76 is a failed experiment. A game that, even with some good points, ultimately fails to deliver an entertaining experience due to its terrible combat system and some technical problems.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is a complete disaster, a game that doesn't work from any perspective. Its narrative is terrible, its progression system is pointless and its gameplay is repetitive.

8.7 / 10.0 - Pokémon: Let's Go
Nov 13, 2018

In spite of the fact that the expectations weren't high after the first trailers, Pokémon: Let's Go is able to result, not only a really good remake of Pokémon Red/Green, but the biggest step forward in the franchise. Definitely one of the biggest and greatest surprises of 2018!

Castlevania Requiem is a lost opportunity. The comeback of a couple of masterpieces that are lacking in improvements from a technical point of view and are difficult to recommend to everyone nowadays.

8 / 10.0 - 60 Parsecs!
Sep 30, 2018

60 Parsecs! hides a really hardcore game behind its innocent aspect. Mixing survival and classic adventures, Robot Gentleman has delivered a unique title that, thanks to its narrative and multiple situations, can easliy entertain players for hours.

9.7 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 25, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 is one of the most polished driving games ever made. The feeling, the amount of content, the spectacular open world and the unbelievable visuals are some pieces of this puzzle that match perfectly to form, all together, a true masterpiece that is perfect in almost every single aspect.

8.5 / 10.0 - Valkyria Chronicles 4
Sep 25, 2018

Valkyria Chronicles 4 returns to the roots of the franchise to deliver the sequel that we have been waiting for 10 years. The best entry in the series so far and an awesome starting point for future Valkyria Chronicle games.

8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2: Forsaken
Sep 13, 2018

Forsaken is not perfect, but is a big step forward for the Destiny franchise. Bungie and Activision are back on track with a big expansion that features the best narrative and some of the best gameplay elements we have ever seen in Destiny, alongside a lot of end-game content.

8 / 10.0 - Donut County
Sep 3, 2018

Donut County is a fun, fresh and original experience that knos how to take advantage of a very simple and limited set of mechanics. Sure it has some flaws but, like a real donut, I don´t care as long as the result is delicious. And it trully is!.

6.5 / 10.0 - Planet Alpha
Aug 31, 2018

Planet Alpha is a game with great ideas and a not-so-good execution. Its puzzles are too simple and its platforming zones are almost inexistent, giving as result a mediocre gameplay. However, the incredible artistic level and good storeytelling can keep the experience afloat

8.3 / 10.0 - HYPERGUN
Aug 24, 2018

Hypergun is not perfect. However, it actually is the best roguelike shooter we have seen. Thanks to its delightful gameplay and its AAA quality gunplay, the few cons fall behind these outstanding pros.

Diablo meets Warhammer 40K in Inquisitor – Martyr, a game that, despite flaws in the progression system and its missions, offers a quite fun gameplay, good storytelling and tons of content.

7 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 7, 2018

Overcooked 2 is more like an expansion of the original game than a real sequel. It has a ton of new content and levels, but the gameplay remains barely intact, which means that the main pros and cons of its predecessor are still here. If you liked the original Overcooked, you will love this sequel; but if you don't, well, this game simply doesn't have anything new to make you fall in love with it.
