On PC, Octopath Traveler is still this charming and gorgeous retro-RPG that offers a well-built but classic adventure to fans of the genre.

A bit different from the previous episodes in terms of tone, Wasteland is a very pleasant crossroad for Life is Strange 2, with some very interesting characters, a good evolution of Sean and Daniel's relationship, heartbreaking choices to make and a shocking ending that promises a lot for what's coming next.

7 / 10 - Picross S3
Apr 29, 2019

Even if it doesn't add touch screen feature and seems to lack some real novelty, Picross S3 offers dozens of new images to discover with a principle that can kill every minute of your spare time without you noticing it. It's a fair entry entry in the series with a fun new mode, Color Picross, that sadly feels very short with only 30 puzzles.

8 / 10 - Katana Zero
Apr 18, 2019

Katana ZERO is magnificent action game with a fantastic atmosphere. Its story and characters are as sharp as its gameplay, that offers some true puzzling moments wondering how to kill efficiently, by using a very useful slow-motion mechanic. Unfortunately, at the time we're done with it, as it is a very compelling experience, we're still hungry. Let's hope for a sequel. Quick.

This last episode of The Walking Dead is certainly not perfect but it brings a conclusion - which was not sure a few months ago - to the series. And it still can be liked by those who truly love the characters, even if it has only a few surprises in store. Nevertheless, this opportunity to say goodbye to Clementine - in extension to the whole Telltale Games formula - is truly appreciable. We'll miss her for sure.

On Switch, 12 is Better Than 6 is much more of a mexican let down than a mexican stand off. It sure had some potential as a far west hand drawn Hotline Miami but issues like frame rate dropping, protagonist stuck near some walls or very disappointing A.I. make it a game that can be hard to enjoy. Too bad.

9 / 10 - Devotion
Feb 23, 2019

Feeling like a successful meeting between Silent Hill 2 and what Remains of Edith Finch, Devotion is magnificiently written and disturbing experience. A fantastic, scary, immersive first-person horror journey that you can jump in unquestionably.

8 / 10 - Tetris 99
Feb 18, 2019

As a competitive and quite frantic game, Tetris 99 is the exact opposite of Tetris Effect. And it's a very good game too. It's not the kind of experience you play to feel more peaceful. When you engage in the only available mode, you want to be the last survivor. And if you're not, you go for another shot. And another. It can last forever because Tetris 99 is just so addictive.

Even if it offers some new ways to play that can make the formula evolve in the right direction, Far Cry : New Dawn suffers from having a poor story and very forgettable characters, that make it look like a Direct-to-DVD sequel to Far Cry 5. The real new dawn for the series is not for this time.

AWAY : Journey to the Unexpected can be seen as a charming, crazy, thankfully simple and short game to spend an afternoon on. Sadly, it is also a hollow, redundant and not very interesting experience.

The Hong Kong Massacre is the kind of game you'd love to love. It's a very pleasant arcade twin stick shooter that makes us more than efficiently feel like we are in a John Woo movie. But it quickly show its limits, as new ideas or mechanics never show up to give us more than expected.

Rules is a good way to continue the story of Life is Strange 2. This chapter that makes us make some tough decisions regarding the situation can be depressing, soothing, shocking, moving and we are really looking forward to know where Sean and Daniel are taken next time.

Broken Toys is a fine and quite interesting episode. There's tension, action, heatbreaking moments, good characters development and a lot of question that hopefully will find answers in a few weeks.

We expected Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom to be good. But, honestly, not that good. Visually stunning, faithfull to its ancestors but not chained to them, this game is a true masterpiece, full of great ideas and that can entertain you for a long time if you feel the need to discover all of its very well hidden secrets. A must play.

7 / 10 - Toki
Nov 22, 2018

Toki is a visually successful remaster of a game dear to a lot of quite old gamers. It hasn't changed a lot, which can be good for arcade pasionnates but frustrating for those who are not receptive to the proposition, and offers nothing more but it's fine.

This is the handheld version of Diablo that will please everyone. Diablo III : The Eternal Collection on Switch is a very successful and solid port of the 2012 game with all its content and updates. This is one of the best hack slash ever made, promising dozens and dozens hours of fun exploring, killing and looting in a magnificient dark fantasy world and the fact that you can play it anywhere and with anyone so easily makes it just irresistible.

7 / 10 - Hitman 2
Nov 8, 2018

Hitman 2 doesn't try to revolutionize the formula of the previous game. And it's totally acceptable as it is still efficient. There's a lot things to do/observe/infiltrate/kill/hide/use in each huge and beautiful level, and it is indeed a great assassin simulation, even if the game has not many things more to offer in terms of gameplay compared to its predecessor, and feels a bit like a "1.5 version". Accept its rules and you will be pleased, for a long time.

If you already both games of this compilation, it's not exactly worth it, as it is mainly Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night in their PSP versions - without the 2.5 version of the first one. But if you've never played those, it's a pleasant, but not very joyful, way to discover them.

There's a new sheriff in the open-world action game genre in town. Red Dead Redemption 2 is sure ambitious but it succeeds everywhere he travels : exploration, gunfights, stealth, main quest, characters, side quests, customization, acting, hunting, fishing... Name one element, it delivers. And it sure looks like one of the best looking games ever seen and has many secrets yet to be discovered. And so it can be considered as a masterpiece, an extraordinary, legendary game that we will talk about with sincere admiration for ages.

On Switch, Child of Light keeps on being a fantastic, poetic and powerful playable fairy-tale for the whole family, with strong arts, a beautiful story, some easy to understand mechanics and a lovely soundtrack.
