The game that can define this generation. The Last of Us Part II is a story of revenge and the feeling of hatred and its foundation is fueled by violence and the values ​​of the human being in a world that struggles to survive on itself. Other equally strong feelings also support this intense narrative, such as fear, obsession and mercy.

Inspired by the previous games, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition is a must-have title for any JRPG fan, especially for those who enjoy the franchise. It manages to be nostalgic in the details, and it is modern where it really needs to be, especially in the artistic department. The gameplay maintains much of the originality of the franchise and, at the same time, has some changes that refreshes the overall experience.

9.5 / 10.0 - HARDCORE MECHA
Jan 21, 2020

With an engaging and exciting campaign, the narrative makes it look like we're watching an anime, spurring our game to see the next step in history and conveying the adrenaline of the moment so that our battle on board the Thunderbolt is the most epic we've ever fought. Simulation mode aims to shape us to be a more hardcore driver and the local multiplayer mode is an excellent addition for playing with friends. A generous package and a great recommendation for those who enjoy the mecha genre.

Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection is the best compilation of the franchise that Capcom has ever released. Unlike the previous editions, which were divided in two, here we have a complete package with all games from the Zero and ZX series. Games that until then were only available on two out of line Nintendo portable consoles are now accessible with new ways to play and are sure to appeal to a wide range of players. From the novices, who can play them in a more casual and pleasant way, to the veterans of the series, who now have support for achievements / trophies and the possibility to show worldwide who is the best at Z Chaser.

9.5 / 10.0 - Windjammers 2
Jan 20, 2022

Windjammers 2 is a perfect sequel. While honoring its origins, it renews and revitalizes an arcade experience that remains extremely fun, competitive, and exciting. Another excellent job by Dotemu in rescuing a game we didn't know we needed so much.

SuperEpic: The Entertainment War got my interest in art and the metroidvania genre, which I really like. The captivating soundtrack, references and gameplay complete the experience, making the game quite fun. The extra activities to complete 100% of the map and the extra game mode supply the taste of “I want more” that the title leaves at the end, and it is an excellent, we can say Epic, addition to the genre that was embraced by the independent scenario.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2020
Jul 22, 2020

F1 2020, with its presentation that faithfully reproduces the transmission of another weekend of Formula 1, takes the lead as one of the best games of the genre this year. With a more refined gameplay for those who are veterans of the franchise and very friendly for those who are not very close to simulators or have never ventured into the genre, we have here a strong candidate for the best racing game of 2020.

9 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Aug 5, 2020

Cuphead's arrival on PlayStation 4 is an excellent addition to the console library, providing one of the largest communities of the current generation also has access to this excellent game. Another interesting point about this launch is that now all players will be able to enjoy the upcoming DLC, called Delicious Last Course, which still has no confirmed release date, but which is still scheduled for this year, promising to pull out what remains of the hair of our heads.

Scythe: Digital Edition is one of the best digital translations of a board game that I had the opportunity to try. Having contact with its original version obviously helped me when I was transported to dystopian Europe in the 1920s and also helped me to see how well the adaptation of Asmodee Games was done. Veterans will miss moving real pieces, counting pennies and even gathering everything together after playing, but I guarantee they will agree with me that the quality has remained in the digital version of this excellent game. Obviously it does not replace the charm of the original game, but it is a great alternative to play with friends.

Resident Evil Village is a reference to the horror genre and an important milestone for the series in its 25th anniversary celebrations. Capcom first-person gameplay remains a wise decision, bringing gameplay and storytelling together in an excellent way. The main inspiration is the older brother, Resident Evil 4, with mechanics, characters and quality that make Village a kind of spiritual successor to one of the most revered games in the franchise. A must-have title for Resident Evil fans.

With several improvements and options to make it more accessible — less difficult should be more suitable — or more challenging, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is the best version of a videogame classic. With a presentation that brings excellent art and music, in addition to elements that greatly enhance the gameplay, the high difficulty still makes the game be targeted to a more specific niche. Still recommended, but to be enjoyed in moderation.

What to talk about Tetris in 2021? Based on what I experienced in Tetris Effect: Connected, I can say that we have here one of the most remarkable presentations of a classic game that defies time. It's that old game that still captivates, amuses and challenges. A worthy game for puzzle fans in a vigorous and technically perfect experience of an eternal classic.

Journey to the Savage Planet had a very timid announcement of a new studio, and left a good first impression of the work of the Typhoon Studios team. Speaking of the relaxed atmosphere of the game, I would make a joke that could start with "Borderlands and No Man’s Sky walk into a bar..." and that will give the idea of the atmosphere that the game goes through. It is a fun and well done title, I was very pleased with the experience I had while exploring the planet. And if they throw toy Pufferbirds, I want to collect them all.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 shows once again why it is one of the best game series of the Straw Hat Pirates. The action experience of the pirates in the musou genre is one of the best that presents what One Piece has to offer in quantity and quality. In this fourth entry we have more than a sequel, showing a more technically and graphically refined product, with easy and pleasant gameplay, fun but challenging for those who like to play with high difficulty.

8.5 / 10.0 - Void Bastards
May 12, 2020

Void Bastards has many merits, despite sinning in one way or another. It is an excellent title for those who enjoy a good roguelike. Anyone who is more adept at the action characteristic of other FPS’ may be a little disappointed as the focus here is greater on strategy and item management that guarantee the player's survival for longer with a single character.

Mafia: Definitive Edition is easily one of the best remakes ever released and remains the best in the trilogy. A great choice for those who prefer a well constructed and tied narrative, added to a gameplay that, although not perfect, does not take away the renewed shine of this classic.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales stands out for further highlighting one of the best PS4 games in an excellent expansion of the universe created by Insomniac in 2018. What was already good has been maintained and certain features have been improved. With impeccable presentation and an excellent adventure, its only problem is still being at the mercy of its predecessor when it comes to innovation.

8.5 / 10.0 - Habroxia 2
Feb 1, 2021

Habroxia 2 does an excellent job of transporting us back to a time when shoot 'em ups were strong on arcades and consoles in the 1990s. The game features sounds, visuals and other details that bring us back to classics like Galaga, Gradius, R-Type and many others that have become symbols of an era. Whether casual or hardcore, here we have an excellent option for those who want the almost perfect balance of challenge, fun and quality. Embark fearlessly on this space adventure and have fun, Habroxia 2 is a delicacy.

8.5 / 10.0 - Eagle Island Twist
Jul 6, 2021

Eagle Island Twist is a good example of the famous saying "don't judge a book by its cover". Despite appearing to be a cute and simple game at first glance, it is quite challenging and well done both technically and artistically. The pixel art direction demonstrates impressive details, such as the lighting effects on underground scenes and the reflection of some translucent platforms. The title is a treat for fans of platformers.
