Ruvato: Original Complex First half of the game doesn’t really deliver the interactions from the action sequences. There are glitches that even if you parry an incoming attack, the follow up doesn’t damage the enemies. There are no options to check your buttons settings or go into tutorial mode. While there are many flaws of the game, once you figure out the enemy placements within the stage, using parry attacks to plow through them while upgrading your stats, provide a fun and speedy experience that you weren’t able to see from other similar titles. That’s actually enough for you to enjoy what Ruvato brings up to the table.

The long running series has always faced challenges in improving the game itself while trying to keep its fan base intact. Once again, this ‘new Guilty Gear’ comes with enhanced graphics and overall upgraded gameplay mechanics. While they could have kept most of their old system and only focused on the visuals, their efforts in trying to make the best outcome in every detail is worth the praise. Specifically, the ‘hardcore player’ barrier has become less strict in difficulty, in comparison to their predecessor which would easily allow newcomers to the existing fighting game community. The 15 playable characters may not seem much but their continuous development and evolution in the near future is something we can positively bet on for better updates to come.

In November 2020, the PlayStation 5 was released with high hopes of the new console gaming era. But until now, many PS5 games were multi-platform releases including the predecessor, PS4. So most of the currently available PS5 games didn’t really feel like ‘the game’. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart proudly yells out to be that special PS5 game. Sensational visuals and in-game production quality are top notch. The gameplay has various enhancements including the usage of the Dualsense controller’s haptic feedback, adaptive trigger features and PS5’s own sound tech, the Tempest 3D audio. There is no doubt for this game to be labeled as ‘the game’ of the new generation.

The gameplay has not been altered since the original release 10 years back but since the fighting game mechanics were top notch at the time, all of the great action and battle systems are still intact. All of the graphical enhancements such as stages and user interface were upgraded so there’s our eye candy. General online playability have also improved and unlike the original old-gen console versions, there are no region restrictions in match making, but the delayed netcode would greatly decrease some of the combat experience if the players are geographically too far apart. The single player and tutorial modes also seem a little lack luster and we hope for a patch to be deployed soon as they’re available.

88 / 100 - Judgment
Apr 30, 2021

The original game which was released on PS4 has received some visual and performance upgrades on the latest generation console. The game is known for its artistic structure along with the writing and interactions which is highly renowned as the key element of the game. Also so great that they’d cover up some minor hiccups if there were any. While the story plot is somewhat spectacular in scale, players don’t need to study up on any background history or other articles to understand and enjoy the game to its fullest. So if you haven’t played this game already, there’s no excuse to give it a try. Since there aren’t any added contents in this new version, if you’ve already played the PS4 variant, there won’t be much of a difference in gameplay. But all in all it’s a great value for a PS5 game so there’s plenty of replay value on its upgraded platform.

85 / 100 - Cotton Reboot!
Apr 11, 2021

Just like the name of the title suggests, this is a successful ‘Reboot’ of the classic rail shooter series, ‘Cotton’. Other than the fact that this is the latest iteration of the Cotton series, it’s a decent time-killing genre when you want to have a go at your bullet dodging reactions or it can be another level of challenge to those who want to be the next high-scorer within the extension of difficulties to choose from. This action packed rail shooter has variable modes to choose from and is affordably priced in comparison to those fully priced packaged games out there.

Of all Musou genre titles out there, this Zelda spin-off of the original The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is not just a reskinned Mosou series but a complete package full of cutting-edge animation and strategic properties to interact with. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity leaves a mark for fans and enthusiasts of all Zelda franchises as well as those who enjoy Mosou style of mass hack and slasher action genres. There are some technical hiccups when there are too many objects and enemies, but it is well forgiven due to the highly polished level of the game as well as some of the background explanations and additional storylines to fill in the gaps of some of the question marks from BOTW. If you want to experience the full circle of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, we recommend you play BOTW to the fullest and see its ending first.

After a long 27 or so years, being able to play Zero Team on a home console via Arcade Archives is already a remarkable feat. If you lived through the era of the 90’s gaming arcades, it will most likely bring in some sentimental and reminiscent time and value once you see its intro clip, which is usually played with the flashing text of ‘Insert Coin’ message. Thankfully, the arcade port is near perfect for you and your friends and family to enjoy. Finally, the main menu and settings of Arcade Archives have continuously become polished to be considered even more user friendly.

80 / 100 - Mad Rat Dead
Nov 12, 2020

Side scrolling platformer with a mix of rhythm genre is a cool concept where you’d be familiar with each of the universes but being able to fuse them both at the same time is a breath of fresh air. Since the basis of a rhythm game forces you to follow the beat which is a bit far from freedom, it’s an adventure that’s worth giving a test drive. Sharp visuals, awesome soundtracks and the story plot are well in harmony. The volume of the contents may not be everyone’s vibe as well as the hefty pricing it chose to perform at. If you’re into completely new things, definitely give this game a go.

70 / 100 - Pang Adventures
Oct 24, 2020

This is one of the best examples of ‘remastered’ versions of the classic. Even if the new look isn’t your favorite cup of tea, once you get to play the actual game, it blends in really well. It’s priced just under $10 for Nintendo Switch, which is a great value in comparison to many other reboot/classic games’ price range. Great choice for those who are hunting for some of the best value games with great gameplay.
