Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is one of the best adventures in the series. If, like me, you've been dreaming of playing both Ichiban and Kiryu, you won't be disappointed. It's also the title with the most things to do in the entire series. Scenario-wise, it's still high on emotion and full of twists and turns, some more predictable than others. For my part, apart from the main antagonists who are a little less interesting, the game as a whole remains one of the best, if not the best, in the collection to date.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a good addition to the Nintendo Switch library. Without being a masterpiece or a must-have, it's a good little game at a lower cost while we wait for flagship releases like Princess Peach: Showtime! or Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. What's more, it's not just a simple remake, and Nintendo has done what it takes to bring the series back to life.

Arc System Works delivers an entire retelling of the DS/Wii compilation of Another Codes games with enhanced visuals and modernized gameplay. The story is particularly well written and addresses some mature subject. We hope to see more of Ashley in the future.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Prince of Shadows has a few things going for it, but overall I found it rather average. I'm a long-time fan of the main series, and I don't think this one can hold a candle to Dragon Quest XI. If you're looking for a game in this genre, you'd be better served by a Shin Megami Tensei V or a Persona 5.

In closing, I really enjoyed this new chapter in the series. I think it fills in any gaps left by the approach of the 8th installment. The final section of Like a Dragon Gaiden is particularly satisfying and emotionally charged. In short, another excellent action game from Ryū Ga Gotoku Studio that also comes with a demo of the next title that sets the table nicely. What's more, if you've been waiting for the English dub, it's now available. So, if you're a fan of the series, this really is a must-have, and for the rest of us, what are you waiting for to get started?

9.5 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Dec 11, 2023

Alan Wake 2 is a great success that proves that patience has paid off for Remedy Entertainment. The game is of the highest artistic, narrative and gameplay quality. If your nerves are strong enough, and you're a fan of horror and survival games, this is one of the best. However, I strongly recommend that you play the first game to understand all the subtleties. In short, for me this is a game that will make my TOP 3 this year, which is no mean feat in a year so rich in high-quality video games.

Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn didn't meet all my expectations, but I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed this chapter in the Tales series, so I was very happy to return to it 2 years later. I think the stage is set for a real sequel, and Nazamil's new character should be a central part of it. So, if you're thirsty to go back, go ahead with the DLC. Otherwise, you're not missing out on anything completely unmissable.

In conclusion, I'm impressed by what KO_OP has delivered as a first experience. I'm a big fan of narrative games, and this one is among the very good ones. I would have liked more, because you get through the 8 chapters in about 5 to 6 hours, and I got really attached to the characters. It's always possible to go back to make other choices or to find the flashbacks and memories hidden in the story, but I felt I'd completed my experience. All in all, if you're a fan of Life is Strange or Telltale Games, Goodbye Volcano High is a strong recommendation.

9 / 10.0 - Super Mario RPG
Nov 15, 2023

In conclusion, this remake of Super Mario RPG is exactly what I was hoping for. Everything is as I remembered it, but with modern visuals and some gameplay improvements. It's shorter than I remembered, but I think that's thanks to the extra accessibility elements and the fact that I know a bit more about the genre than I did back then. Plus, if you want to introduce someone to the genre, there's an easier mode to enjoy the story. What's more, the game is entirely in French, so everyone will be able to understand it. In short, it's a great success, and I hope Nintendo will finally consider a sequel.

WarioWare: Move It! is a really fun party game that makes great use of the Joy-Con to come up with a wide variety of very original mini games. Although the story is a bit short and the characters underused, the multiplayer makes it a worthwhile addition to any household with more than one player.

8 / 10.0 - This Bed We Made
Oct 28, 2023

This Bed We Made offers a great narrative that completely absorbs the player into discovering each of its mysteries. The game addresses a lot of serious themes of the 50s in brilliant ways which makes the story even more believable. What it lacks in visuals, it definitely compensate with great story-telling which is the most important element in my opinion anyway.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is another excellent Nintendo Switch title that shows the company is still able to come up with brilliant new ideas. I loved every single hours spent in this new 2D Mario world and I hope there's more content coming in the near futur. There's no reason to hesitate, this is one of the best games of the console.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 built on the strenghts of the first games to enhance the experience of players in almost every aspect. The scenario is more polished thanks to great actors and epic moments. The gameplay maintains its fluidity while adding many moves to make combats feel even better. New York is twice as big, but it's never been as easy, fun and quick to travel. Insomniac delivered another banger that will make you feel like the most amazing of superheroes.

In closing, The Return of Detective Pikachu is an entertaining spin-off that brings a fun new perspective to the universe. Sure, there are a few flaws, but the heartfelt story should satisfy even the youngest fans of the franchise.

9.5 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport
Oct 4, 2023

Forza Motorsport is the best racing game on the market, surpassing even Forza Horizon 5, whose style has always won me over. Immersion is at its peak from start to finish, and you fall in love with the driving of your vehicles and the feeling of progression. The game's visuals have been taken to the next level, and the developers have used the AI to great effect. I can't wait to see what Turn 10 has in store for us in the months and years to come.

In conclusion, the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC is okay, but nothing more. The story is really very light and we've already seen better in the Pokémon universe. However, I can't wait to see what happens next, because the ending hooked me enough to make me want to play part 2. For die-hard fans, the side quests and the many Pokémons to capture will easily extend the adventure by another 5-6 hours on top of the initial 3-4. So, if you're craving more Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, go for it. For the rest of you, I'll wait to see the quality of volume 2 before investing my $45.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie is an excellent finale to the two previous story arcs. What's more, the aspect of three paths progressing in the same story is really interesting, especially as there's a good mix of recurring and new characters. What's more, the pace is very good and the story is more concise, which is better. Finally, once again, the abracadabra scenario will keep you on the edge of your seat with its unexpected twists and turns. In short, if you're a fan of JRPGs and haven't already done so, you absolutely must discover the Trails series.

9 / 10.0 - Pikmin 4
Jul 19, 2023

Pikmin 4 offers plenty of new great gameplay elements to make it an excellent follow-up to the previous entries. With the addition of the Dandori modes and your loyal dog Otchin, the series has never put forth so many strategic elements. It’s a real delight.

In conclusion, Xenoblade Chronicles 3's Future Regained content delivers exactly what fans of the series wanted. We're reunited with two of the series' iconic characters who have left their mark on us, and we're able to forge links with the 3rd. Although a few mysteries still linger, it's a very good conclusion that's definitely worth the price.

9 / 10.0 - Diablo IV
Jun 30, 2023

In conclusion, I'm really enjoying Diablo IV. The gameplay is efficient and suits me perfectly. The story kept me on the edge of my seat right to the end, and its production quality served it particularly well. The sanctuary world is particularly large and I always have something to do even when my friends are offline. I hope that Blizzard will offer quality free content between now and the first paid expansion. For me, it's a success from start to finish, despite minor irritants.
