Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II keeps alive a franchise that has conquered a relevant space in its niche, innovating in some aspects and maintaining others that mark the identity of these games.

KONOSUBA – God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! Love For These Clothes Of Desire! it's a game that doesn't have much reason to be, even for KONOSUBA fans. The tedious gameplay, low production value, and very poor localization mean that there is very little left for those who still want to give the game a chance.

100 / 100 - Gnosia
Dec 22, 2023

With an all-new story, unorthodox gameplay, and originality to spare, GNOSIA is a masterpiece of the genre that deserves all the recognition.

There's a good game in Archetype Arcadia, but with its bloated playtime, its inconsistent art, and its unoriginal premise, what's left over shouldn't please most players.

With nostalgic DNA, the remaster of The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails should please longtime Falcom fans, but newer fans may not fit too well into the "loop" and constraints of the original release.

Despite not delivering what it promised and sounding like a step back after so many new experiences developed by Experience, Mon-Yu still manages to offer at least the essential experience and entertain familiar players with the genre.

Sep 11, 2023

A competent visual novel with an engaging story and unique artwork, ANONYMOUS; CODE delivers a solid experience, even though, at certain points, it brings well-known beats from other games in the SciADV series.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is another hit for Capcom, in bringing Shu Takumi's masterpieces to a new public, while also expanding the audience for games of less celebrated genres to the wider audience.

Despite being mechanically decent, Labyrinth of Zangetsu is uninspired and basic, becoming a hard sell, even for fans of the genre.

Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly is a hot coffee in a rainy day, a safe bet from the developers by not straying too far from the formula established with the first game.

A Light in the Dark is a game that illustrates, in a secluded space and in a specific situation, the great conflict between wealth and poverty, and how this conflict has direct consequences in the lives of its characters.

Inspired by more established titles in the market, Process of Elimination delivers a suitable experience, with a premise well known to the public, but with a complexity below of that from its inspirations.

Despite being technically competent, Grim Guardians: Demon Purge fails by playing too safe in certain aspects, leaning too much on its inspirations, and also by not paying attention to simple and basic things expected from the genre. In the end, it delivers an average and unimpressive experience.

Another hit within the DRPG genre, Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society marks another entry in NIS' successful franchise. An unmissable title for fans of the genre and a strong recommendation for JRPG fans in general.

A blast from the past, Persona 3 Portable returns to the scene after thirteen years. With a few outdated quirks directly imported from the PSP rerelease, it's still a very fun game, although it might not be up to the standards of players that had Persona 5 Royal as their first foray into the series.

90 / 100 - Persona 4 Golden
Jan 21, 2023

I understand that Persona 4 Golden has a special place in the hearts of those who played it and want to revisit the classic, and that it's still a great choice for those who have never played it, but an addition to the story, new Personas or even a more elaborate work with graphics could've brought this still excelent RPG to a new high in 2023.

Overall, Witch on the Holy Night is an excellent visual novel that shows why the studio behind it is so famous and responsible for some of the biggest franchises of the genre. Apart from some minor criticisms, such as the localization and the balance of the scenes, this might be the genre's best release this year.

More of the same, River City Girls 2 offers an expansion for the price of a sequel. More time was needed in the oven, either to offer more novelty or to break the mold and bring something completely new.
