Monster Hunter Rise is a true exponent of everything the franchise has presented over almost two decades of existence. With subtle improvements in gameplay, the game's arrival on more platforms could make this the greatest of all games in the series ever released in Capcom's history.

Need for Speed Unbound manages to reinvigorate a long-lived franchise that still manages to stand out, even after almost 30 years of existence. The aesthetics and atmosphere of the game refer to the golden times of NFS Underground and NFS Hot Pursuit with elements that make the experience modern and fun. It's a title that could be the starting point for a new generation of the series after many years of ups and downs.

7 / 10.0 - Impaler
Dec 15, 2022

Despite not innovating anything in the roguelike genre, Impaler is a very honest recommendation for anyone looking for a few hours of cheap fun with minimalist graphics and a fair challenge for any player profile, be it a fan of first-person shooters, roguelikes , or even both.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bravery and Greed
Nov 29, 2022

Bravery and Greed is a great option for fun and addictive gameplay with friends in an engaging roguelite experience, despite not innovating within the genre. The desire to play a new game is always great after filling the pockets with each new attempt to get filthy rich.

7 / 10.0 - McPixel 3
Nov 22, 2022

McPixel 3 is a great choice for those looking for something more casual and light for their gaming moments. With a predominant and often exaggerated humor, this indie title has a unique and unpretentious vibe that yields good laughs and a little work for those who want to complete it. You can play while eating popcorn, but be careful not to get butter on your controller.

God of War Ragnarök manages to be exquisite in everything it set out to do. Santa Monica Studio gives a real lesson in how a sequel should be made, exceeding all expectations in terms of graphics, performance, gameplay and storytelling in the best action adventure game of recent times. If the God of War franchise ever had a heyday, it has been surpassed.

The Winters Expansion has brought an interesting content addition to Resident Evil Village. The story expansion is modest, with few really interesting new features due to the attempt to make Rose replicate her father's journey in the same scenarios as the main game. The third-person mode gives a new approach to the gameplay, but for creative decisions it chooses to keep the first-person perspective in the story segments. The Mercenaries: Additional Orders mode was the winner with content that yields good hours of gameplay.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is an excellent continuation of one of the most remarkable stories in gaming today. With exquisite direction, narrative and gameplay make a virtually perfect marriage of one of the best single player experiences of 2022.

6 / 10.0 - Gotham Knights
Oct 25, 2022

Gotham Knights is a project that could have become a new stage on superhero videogame experiences but became a victim of what Batman's big legacy has already brought to the genre as a game that will inevitably be forgotten and purposely ignored.

7 / 10.0 - Valkyrie Elysium
Oct 8, 2022

Valkyrie Elysium, like other action RPGs, is an excellent choice for anyone who likes fast, dynamic combat with good doses of challenge. On the other hand, it's an experience that doesn't live up to the legacy of the series it represents, bringing one of the least interesting stories in the franchise, a monotonous and tiresome game progression, and a very questionable overall value. A game that, unlike its predecessors, doesn't deserve Valhalla.

8.5 / 10.0 - Prodeus
Oct 7, 2022

The mixture of visual styles of Prodeus, combined with agile and responsive gameplay, results in something that we can call modern nostalgia. If you enjoy FPS games in general, but you want to take a walk in the past to kill the desire for a title with a retro feel without appealing to the obviousness of the classics, this is the game you are looking for.

8 / 10.0 - Jack Move
Sep 23, 2022

Jack Move is a modern JRPG that pays homage to its origins by bringing a very casual experience of a genre that usually demands a lot from players with a well-written plot, well-built characters and simple gameplay to master. It is great for those looking for a less demanding, but still satisfying, experience in this classic video game genre.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance is yet another product that suffers from the stigma of anime-based games, as it has elements that will be better used and valued by those who enjoy the original product. Despite the great quality with many elements to please the fans, the repetitiveness and lack of inspiration in the progression does not contribute to attract the interest of more players, even those who don't even know what a Mobile Suit is.

The Last of Us Part I brings everything the game deserved to be in 2013 with visuals, mechanics and features that provide a great experience for both veterans and newbies in this universe of intense stories and outstanding characters. Fully standardized with Part II, this is a remake that we didn't need, at least for now, but one that is very welcome to keep alive one of the most important products in the global gaming industry.

7 / 10.0 - Cursed to Golf
Aug 18, 2022

Cursed to Golf is a fun roguelite experience that brings a new, fun and challenging golfing twist. Charming and with a simple gameplay, the already accentuated difficulty could be alleviated thanks to a more efficient use of the game's camera and a checkpoint system that encourages the player to want to finish the game without having to go through so many hardships

7.5 / 10.0 - Thymesia
Aug 16, 2022

Thymesia is an interesting title for those who already know the soulslike genre but aren't ready or don't want to go through so many hardships in more demanding games of this type. Its main highlight is the agile and competent combat system that encourages the player to maintain an offensive posture most of the time in a more modest, but still very challenging, soulslike experience that will yield good hours of gameplay.

The roguelike is a niche genre that has been gaining more space in recent years with great games that challenge players around the world, and luckily we can include Gwent: Rogue Mage in the list of those worth checking out. If you are a fan of card games and enjoy The Witcher universe , then welcome to this challenging experience with lots of content to unlock and different strategies to try to win.

Train Valley: Console Edition is a game that manages to convey a very casual vibe, with hints of competitiveness for those who want to complete it. However, the console version does not bring any real improvement that justifies its acquisition by those who, at least, have already played or own the PC version. On the contrary, the gameplay in this version is much more laborious, contributing to a quick disinterest in the game.

Krut: The Mythic Wings presents a strong example of lazy level design, poor gameplay and questionable quality. It is difficult to point out positive things amid so much that shows that this is a low quality product.

8.5 / 10.0 - F1 22
Jul 8, 2022

F1 22 remains a benchmark in the racing simulation genre with a true-to-life experience of the weather, driving and adrenaline of the motorsport elite. Despite bringing more updates than innovations, it is still a great recommendation for anyone who is a fan of car racing, especially Formula 1. The game does not disappoint in relation to previous years' editions, but it runs the risk of being outdated in 2023 if it doesn't bring something that makes the player more engaged.
