A complete package of the Mysterious trilogy, containing all of the dlcs and extra materials, is a good idea and a good starting point for newcomers, but the hefty price tag recommends to wait for a sale.

While Square's effort to bring to modern console its old goodies is commendable, SaGa Frontier Remastered is just an average RPG with a few highs and just as many lows.

If we wanted to be picky, we would judge Forged in the Barrens as a fairly conservative expansion, with only one new keyword and a set of interesting but not shocking cards, but just look at the combo created by the new, mammoth patch and subsequent expansion to realize how hard the development team is working to turn Hearthstone around like a sock, in order to make it more attractive to new players and equally comfortable for those of the water under the decks who have it seen so much passing.

Just like with the recent Resident Evil remakes, Capcom nails it once again, and Sir Arthur gets the treatment he deserves after 35 years of service. This is as difficult as the player wants it to be, and so newcomers are welcome, and should not miss this gem of an action platformer.

7.6 / 10.0 - Cyber Shadow
Feb 11, 2021

Cyber Shadow is not only a great homage to times gone, but also a quite enjoyable game in itself. What lacks in originality it compensated by great controls and a spot-on level design.

7.1 / 10.0 - Turrican Flashback
Feb 8, 2021

It's a pity that the Turrican Flahsback collection doesn't include any extra at all and Super Turrican 2, arguably one of the better games of the bunch. The price point is also too high, but the games included are great.

7.9 / 10.0 - Ys IX: Monstrum Nox
Jan 29, 2021

Ys IX is probably a step back if directly compared to Lacrimosa of Dana, due to the uneven balance between action and story, but it's still a very solid JRPG, graced by a fast paced combat system.

Atelier Ryza 2 is satisfied to offer more of the same gameplay from the first title, with marginal improvements over the game published last year. It's still a good JRPG but, unlike its predecessor, plays it a little too safe.

Morbid is a nice first attempt at the genre by the people at Still Running and a good alternative for who is starving for a new soulslike game, but it can be improved in many areas and it's consistently lacking in originality.

The third and final expansion for this year is a good one, and brings a new reward system,a newe keyword and some interesting new decks to the table.
