Hail Satan.

Feb 10, 2021

As the title itself indicates, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury proves to be more than just the re-proposal in Nintendo Switch sauce of an exclusive Wii U not particularly lucky: the idea of inserting for once a completely new extra is very appreciable, and you find the ideas inside Bowser's Fury are not lacking at all. While the difference in tone and gameplay between the two games is quite right, the overall superiority of Super Mario 3D World over the new adventure is also evident, which ends up being an appendix or little more. The effect is that of a very solid pairing, which once again celebrates the undisputed supremacy of the Great N in the platforming field.

Inspired and bewitching, Little Nightmares II fits easily and consistently in the wake of its predecessor, intelligently and elegantly expanding the narrative of a perverse and distressing dimension, yet at the same time almost irresistible.

7 / 10.0 - The Medium
Jan 27, 2021

The Medium is a horror with fascinating potential, but translated into an experience never really ambitious, and indeed paradoxically rather limited, restrained and shallow.

It is hard to see why Microsoft has so quietly launched a very gluttonous DLC that, in its small way, it could have represented the Xbox response to sony's operation with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In a wild race between stone idols and legendary monsters, the three hours of Hivebusters will serve to remind you why Gears is after all these years a series still so damn satisfying. Hivebusters is a must-see for all Marcus Fenix fans, and strongly recommended for anyone who wants to get closer to the saga for the first time.

7.2 / 10.0 - Call of the Sea
Dec 14, 2020

Call of the Sea is an interesting but imperfect experiment, denoted by some (legitimate) error of inexperience. In general, the feeling is that of an adventure written in a pleasant and on average enjoyable way to play, but never get to that status of small gem to discover.

8.2 / 10.0 - Astro's Playroom
Nov 6, 2020

Astro's Playroom is a tangible demonstration of dualsense's incredible potential, but also the sublime meeting point between playstation's past and future. It is difficult, if not impossible, to determine at the moment whether the admirable route traced by ASOBI Team in exploiting the features of the new PS5 controller will remain a little beaten path or the high road taken by most. In doubt, it is still worth abandoning yourself to a colorful party that will make you laugh, entertain, excite and gasp. A very first step in the new generation of those not to be underestimated, as well as the perfect showcase of gaming in sensory format that Sony would like us to live on PlayStation 5 (celebrating its origins from A to Z in the meantime).

9.2 / 10.0 - Hades
Sep 24, 2020

Hades is, bluntly, a masterpiece: a phenomenal roguelike, packed with a class and inspiration, which once again consecrates (and perhaps more than ever...) the crystalline talent of Supergiant Games.

9 / 10.0 - A Short Hike
Aug 29, 2020

A Short Hike is a delightful experience: simple, contained, collected in ambition, yet so rich in character and emotion. Thanks to a very valuable artistic direction, a level soundtrack, brilliant controls and remarkable writing, Adam Robinson-Yu's small great experiment proves to be a bon-bon of gameplay style: the trip that anyone should give themselves (also because the cost is literally that of a pizza ...) at the end of a strange and different summer. Unmissable, see you up there, at the top.

8.2 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 20, 2020

In no uncertain terms, Battletoads is the surprise that at this point probably no one would have expected: the unknown Englishmen of Dlala Studios have managed to give a whole new soul to a franchise that has remained obscure to most and abandoned for over twenty-five years, presenting themselves with a loud and hilarious playable cartoon that is hard to remain indifferent to. A cheerful video game, sometimes demanding and always deliciously summery, which is loved by the innate sympathy that is capable of inspiring both in terms of atmospheres (writing, aesthetics and above all animations are really perfect) as well as in terms of gameplay, with in particular, an original and satisfying scrolling fighting game system. Of course, there are some flaws in some passages, occasional mistakes of youth are seen here and there and the unjustified absence of online multiplayer weighs heavily ... defects that in any case do not compromise at all an experience more than ever recommended, which relaunch the trio of hilarious toads as little big new entries in the green Xbox galaxy. TOADSHAMBO !!!

7.3 / 10.0 - Good Job!
Apr 8, 2020

As is Good Job! it remains an interesting and well packaged product, but ultimately also a little "light". In short, net of a not very popular price, a side dish not bad to alternate perhaps with much more structured and demanding experiences.
