9 / 10.0 - Astro's Playroom
Jul 4, 2021

Astro’s Playroom is a lovely game, with great level design and a simple and surprisingly pleasurable gameplay, which can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages and skill levels. It completely fulfills the proposal to demonstrate the potential of the new console, while paying a beautiful tribute to the entire trajectory of Sony consoles. It could bring a little more features, but it's still a memorable title and will always be a reference when it comes to demoing PS5 features.

8.5 / 10.0 - Neptunia ReVerse
Jun 24, 2021

Neptunia ReVerse is a very fun RPG, with intense combat and a good balance of difficulty and accessibility. It has a lot of extra content in the form of collectibles, side quests and the fishing minigame, which can entertain the player for quite a while. The story is not that complex, but it is strongly supported by the charisma of its characters, humor and fun combat mechanics. Although not extremely innovative, it is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a good JRPG and wants to know or revisit Neptunia's universe origin.

Capcom Arcade Stadium is competent enough in recreating the exciting and noisy atmosphere of an arcade shop, bringing fond memories to the older players and historical context for the younger ones. Its varied collection features dozens of the company's games, some very remarkable, others not so much, covering the main styles that have consecrated Capcom in arcades. Despite the absence of some major games and online multiplayer, it's an almost must-have title for arcade and retrogaming enthusiasts, with lots of extra features and customization options.

8.5 / 10.0 - The TakeOver
Jun 7, 2021

The TakeOver has everything you'd expect from a good beat ‘em up, with a different look and simple and impeccable gameplay. Despite some occasional technical problems, it is a great recommendation for being fun and enjoyable to play, especially for beat'em up fans.

8 / 10.0 - Returnal
Jun 1, 2021

Returnal is a very difficult title to evaluate and, therefore, to recommend. It's not bad — on the contrary, it's addictive, beautifully crafted, has controls bordering on perfection, and sublimely leverages the PS5's next-gen features. But its cruel game design is for few; most players will become discouraged and abandon the game along the way. If you like roguelikes, enjoy a good challenge and have unwavering persistence, I definitely recommend Returnal. But if you're one of those people who doesn't like the mechanics of starting over hundreds of times with little progress between the runs, you better move on.

7.5 / 10.0 - Erica
May 24, 2021

As a film, Erica is a very engaging thriller, not for the somewhat cliché plot, but for the interactivity that brings a special flavor, since the decisions define the ending that will be shown. It is a pity that only the options at the end of the film really matter for the outcome and that there is no system for revisiting scenes or altering decisions. Still, Erica is an interesting title for anyone who is looking for simple entertainment, but with the participation of the viewer, staying in the middle between a conventional film and a game.

7.5 / 10.0 - R-Type Final 2
May 16, 2021

After an entire generation without new R-Type games, it is nice to be able to play Final 2, which has kept the main traditions of the series. The visuals are only ok and it has crazy difficulty spikes in the middle of the campaign, but the creative level design of the final stages and that feeling of finishing a difficult game compensate the slow and boring start. R-Type Final 2 is not for everyone; it is explicitly aimed at hardcore shoot ‘em ups fans, but it’s an interesting addition to the library on current consoles that lack good representatives in this genre.

8.5 / 10.0 - Judgment
May 8, 2021

Judgment is an excellent spinoff, with an intriguing script, striking characters, a fun combat system and an immense amount of content, as traditional in the Yakuza series. In addition, it introduces new mechanics that, despite not shining as much, differentiate it from other games in the series. The game is fun and can provide you with hundreds of hours of entertainment, and my caveats are the lack of Brazilian Portuguese localization and some mechanics that could be revised. Technically the game is very well polished and the remastered version, despite being visually very similar to the original, is advantageous for the accompanying DLC.

Rain on Your Parade is an extremely fun and playful cloud simulator, excellent to be played with children. It will cause laughter in all types of players, be it casual with little contact with the gamer universe, or that hardcore player who will understand all subtle (and less so) references to the gaming industry itself. After all, who doesn't like to cause a good deal of confusion? Or raining coffee?

Magic: The Gathering Arena fulfills the old dream of playing wherever you want, with decks designed by yourself, anytime and anywhere. With some gameplay and stability issues, it is far from perfect, but it does its job well in bringing all the richness and complexity of big screens to small screens. It is a very valid option to enjoy Magic, especially considering that it is a free application and has full integration with its desktop version.
