Beyond a simple, yet expressive artistic presentation and a nostalgic tone, this narrative, subjective, hence immersive experience addresses dementia issues with such authenticity that Before I Forget not only proves unforgettable, but ultimately useful.

Many flaws of toR Studio's work can be seen as an ironic tribute to the Soviet Union's old-time style, so the deliberately assumed repetitiveness of the concept - brutal and efficient - may oddly help Boris the Rocket to reach the right target.

Pioneers of Olive Town modernizes Story of Seasons' formula in a wilder, wider and somehow easier way, but such industrial revolution often feels heavy, then ultimately lacks life, if not charm, compared to the previous episodes.

Bravely Default II couldn't be through with the past, as shown by the JRPG's tradtional elements which inevitably, if not deliberately arouse nostalgia. While its wider, undulating world invites exploration, this episode seriously lays everything down, from the decidedly abrupt narrative to the extremely demanding strategical battles, exploiting the risk rewarding system and jobs' combination skills at full extent. Such kinds of class, whether wisely revised or exquisitely original, are worth it. Hence Tomoya Asano signs a deeply moving fairy tale intended for the genre's erudites, a beautiful proof of bravery.

Some puzzles prove trickier to solve than desired, if not intented, but Six Dots unveil a humble purpose through a dual approach in black and white - what is told, shown or not, while cleverly mixing the narrative with items combinations.

This well written english translation of Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light proves true to the original script while cutting short through the narration in comparison with the DS remake, just like the gameplay charges straight to the point. A real testament to Fire Emblem's traditional values, though some archaic principles bound this version to an historical interest, even with additional modern options that only alleviate the aging elements.

8 / 10 - Part Time UFO
Nov 2, 2020

An uproarious, fine, original and as a whole catchy experience that seems out of this world, where HAL Laboratory's stellar creations definitely belong.

Beyond the poetic eloquence of such delicate handmade animation and moving musical compositions, the main tour de force is hidden into the puzzles that subtly reflect the story's themes. A modest, yet humbling luminous piece of art.

On the face of it, Tennis World Tour 2 may look like a simple update, but it is a real overhaul in depth, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This translates into more powerful sensations and a more realistic overall rendering, thanks to a more subtle management of timing as well as risk-taking, although floats remain due to still very intrusive audiences.
