Made in Abyss is an interesting title that features a premise and plot that faithfully follow the anime experience and even prove to be truly captivating. The way it blends character development elements with inventory management and survival mechanics is well implemented and introduces a welcomed differentiation . Mainly the concept of the variation of depth affecting the gameplay, it's an aspect that puts us in a different mindset from all other games. However, the title's pacing works against itself, as it is full of moments that cut the natural course of the story. Particularly noteworthy is the amount of content-filling missions, which could be avoided or reworked. Fundamentally, this is a title that allows anime fans to interact with their favorite characters and live their own adventure as explorers of the abyss! All this while visiting the captivating and intriguing areas of the deep!

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a solid entry in the series that, while not exactly reformulating, manages to evolve in essential points.

Railways: Train Simulator is a nice and simplistic game, where our hand-eye coordination is put to the test. The ability to deal with several variables, in order to carry out a good completion of the level also proved to be a challenge to overcome in the final levels. In the end, we were left with the feeling that it could have been something more, but it is still a funny title to try during the dead hours.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a true tribute to the 80's and 90's series, capable of transporting us to feelings that we affectionately keep in the back of our mind. Even more so, it manages on its own merit, to stand out as a competent beat'em up for new generations that want to try it. This is an essential title for any lover of the genre and a great way to spend an evening well spent.

7 / 10.0 - Chocobo GP
Apr 7, 2022

Chocobo GP is a fun kart racing game in which we can easily spend some time, but at the end of the day it doesn't manage to bring anything innovative to the genre. The truth is that most players (including us) will invest some time in this title, simply because they love Final Fantasy. In the end, it's safe to say that Chocobo GP is an experience that doesn't surpass other titles of the genre, but if players enter mindful of its limitations and what it currently is, they can enjoy a good dose of fun.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero is a lovely RPG, carefully hand drawn, that presents us with a story of supplanting and growth. The players are presented with an exciting experience, even though quite elementar towards it's mechanics. The final sensation is that we are facing a fairy tale that is presented to us in a magical way. Despite the tedious random battles, the experience tends to reveal itself as captivating throughout its duration. Essentially, we consider a title that deserves to be passed by everyone at least once.

The Guerrilla Games team managed to create an experience that is clearly characterized as a natural evolution of the first game. In Horizon Forbid West we are rewarded with exactly all the fans of the first game wish for: deeper characterization of Aloy ; an expansion of the post-apocalyptic world; concise plot development; guaranteed beautiful graphics; and of course, more machines to hunt! The capacity and security of the part of the studio, are notorious and in order to provide an experience that meets what we wished for!

7 / 10.0 - Edge of Eternity
Feb 21, 2022

Edge of Eternity is an excellent title for any fan of a good, classic JRPG. Showcasing a clear influence from games from the 90's and early 2000's, it's a clear love letter to these experiences. The small size of the studio is notorious, and its ambition to present a large-scale experience is clear. However, this is also one of the problems, as sometimes the title would benefit more from simpler solutions. It's clearly a game with some rough edges and a very problematic pacing, but if you can accept these limitations, you'll certainly have a very pleasant experience.

Shin Megami Tensei V is a solid experience of what the series can present to the player. Never taking any chances with the formula, it introduces an interesting world, but one that tends to compare too much with other releases in the same series. Some better design choices could have been considered, mainly to avoid midgame repeatability, which tended to sharply accentuate during our time with this title. For fans of the genre, it is certainly an option to consider, but do not foresee a significant evolution or a reformulation of its dynamics, as it may lead to serious disappointment.

Life Is Strange: True Colors is a remarkable experience for any player. It's biggest problem is effectively its legacy and need to keep up with the excellent quality of previous titles. The feeling of an experience below expectations is palpable, largely due to our expectations, a shorter story than usual and fewer locations to explore. Even so, it has some strengths: a more immersive soundtrack; a main character better characterized than in previous titles; surprising graphics and ambiance. If, by any chance, you've never played a title in this series, you will definitely be in love! If, on the other hand, you are fans of Life is Strange, we recommend entering this experience with moderate expectations and you certainly won't regret it!

On a console where Mario Kart is king and lord, it would be strange to come up with an arcade racing game that can stand up to it. In this particular case, we believe that, with some work from the producers, this title will have all the possibilities to do so. The problems detected are likely to be rectified with updates and the freedom and range of possibilities owes nothing to Nintendo's colossus. On the contrary, the huge amount of vehicles (and their customization), combined with a tool for creating and sharing tracks, helps the title a lot to cement its position in the console catalogue. If you're Hot Wheels fans and enjoy arcade racing, it's certainly a title to keep an eye on!

9 / 10.0 - Tales of Arise
Sep 30, 2021

Tales of Arise is a clear evolution of the series' formula, with deeper scenarios and graphics that breathe newness! The more intuitive gameplay, combined with a very competent AI, allows you to enjoy an experience that enhances the interiorization of the plot and characters of this world. Even though it presents a level of difficulty above the average for the series, the challenge presented proves to be gratifying for the player, as the recurring feeling is of justice in the result of our efforts. The future is bright and Tales of Arise may well be the title that will elevate this franchise to the highest levels of the video game market, in a deserved position of greater prominence and recognition.

7.5 / 10.0 - R-Type Final 2
May 29, 2021

R-Type Final 2 is a return to the origins just like relieving an arcade experience. The old school difficulty is very present, so for players new to the genre, get ready to take a lot of beating! Still, we guarantee that you will love this space war, which offers, pretty much, the best experience of its' kind. A real ode to the old days of the arcade and an unmissable title for lovers of the genre.
