9 / 10.0 - Spiritfarer
Aug 29, 2020

Spiritfarer is a game about collecting a ton of resources at a frantic pace and exploring a vast map solving quests, but likewise it is also a beautiful bittersweet tale about life and death. The games explore themes like love, affection, goodbyes, pains, insecurities and new beginnings in a way that we don't see much in the world of video games. Best of all, this beautiful story takes place within a legitimately innovative, fun and well-made game. Do not waste time, Spiritfarer is one of the best games of the year for Switch.

9 / 10.0 - A Short Hike
Sep 3, 2020

A Short Hike is short and sweet, just like a tiny chocolate bar. You know that each bite will be worth it, but the experience definitely lasts for a short time. Going beyond a "mere" video game, A Short Hike resembles a poem or an interactive work of art at different times, while still managing to be a legitimately fun game in the process.

It is difficult to find a reason why someone who has a Switch does not purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars. There is a certain lack of polish in the visual presentation of the collection, and it doesn't make much sense for Mario 64 not to run at 60 fps in 1080p widescreen in 2020. However, as much as this collection could be better, it currently offers the best way to play these three absolute classics of video game history.

Persona 5 Strikers is a great game. If you played and liked P5, being able to revisit these characters and follow the plot of Strikers will be a beautiful gift. Going further, it's amazing to be able to play Persona with an action combat system and see how well everything works. Musou fans and people who don't know Persona may need to adapt a little to really understand Strikers and must be open to many moments when the action stops completely, but I believe it is impossible not to appreciate a work that hits on so many points as Persona 5 Strikers. The Switch is probably not the ideal platform for you to live this adventure, but it does its job well.

If you like Dig Dug, some older Mr. Driller or even Tetris, it's worth giving DrillLand a try. You can expect a game in which there is much to be done, with addictive gameplay, a great soundtrack and a first-rate setting.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is brutal, intriguing, nostalgic, fun and frustrating. The experience is unlikely to appeal to everyone, and perhaps it exists only for niche players, like people with an interest in difficult games, old platformers or Castlevania fans. However, there is no doubt that the title fulfills what it promises, honoring its traditions and bringing some valid new things that result in a game well done and that deserves to be played. I'm here hoping that a possible third one will take the formula to even less orthodox places, but for now, Curse of the Moon 2 has a lot to offer - especially if you have a friend to play with.

Shiren The Wanderer is not exactly relaxing, on the contrary: the game is intense and cerebral, like a chess game in many moments. In addition, there is not much to explore beyond its main purpose: constant adventures in dungeons generated in a procedural way. However, this is not exactly a problem. The gameplay of the game is its strong point and, within the specific subgenre of the Mystery Dungeons, it delivers an almost perfect experience.

8.5 / 10.0 - UnderMine
Feb 22, 2021

Undermine is, unlike many of his contemporaries, a memorable and respectable roguelike. The title masterfully reproduces several classic elements of the genre and brings its own spirit to a formula that is somewhat beaten. Enthusiasts of roguelikes, dungeon crawlers and very challenging games full of content will love to venture into this dangerous gold mine full of personality. Unfortunately, Switch owners, again, have to accept a not-so-optimized experience, but at least it doesn't get in the way that much.

Despite some problems, it is not difficult to have fun and spend several hours exploring the world of Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. If you like this kind of game, but you've played Stardew Valley a thousand times, can't take Animal Crossing: New Horizons anymore, or just played the original or miss a good old Harvest Moon, go ahead without fear. There is a lot to do, more than I expected at the beginning, actually.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ageless
Aug 6, 2020

Ageless is a beautiful tale about empathy and purpose, with an ambience as simple as its message and full of puzzles that can be quite complicated. The game has several positive aspects, and it manages to develop its own identity to create an experience that deserves to be explored. However, there are also several stones in the way: gameplay can be repetitive, tiring and simply flawed and frustrating.
