8 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 22, 2022

NBA 2K23 makes up for the problems that were experienced last year for the next-generation consoles. The visual bugs have been fixed, especially for the lighting effects, and the loading time has been optimized. Note that we did not have the opportunity to try the version on other platforms and it is important to point out that there seem to be several problems on the latter. The franchise mode is complete, the gameplay is still fun and the career mode is still impressive. Clearly, the developers of Visual Concepts don't seem to rely on their assets and that's great for an annual license.

Nihon Falcom and NIS America give us yet another larger-than-life adventure in Trails from Zero. The Legend of Heroes is slowly climbing the ranks of my list of favorite JRPGs, and this one adds important pieces of the puzzle. The quality-of-life improvements that come with the Switch and PC versions would deserve the name of remastered. In short, if you want a JRPG with an emotional story, very enjoyable old-school visuals, and solid combat, give this one a chance.

The game itself will speak to a very niche group. Because, as everyone knows, metal music is not the most popular thing in the world. But for those who like it, I can tell you that you will have a great time. The game is still short for its price but the interest is always to improve your score in this type of game. This makes it possible to come back to it more than once. And it allows us to know the lyrics of the songs and to appreciate the artists. Lots of headbanging to be expected!

Nobody Saves the World is exactly what I've come to expect from a DrinkBox Studios game and more! The game is completely surreal with absurd and ridiculous humor. Even after completing it I want to go back and start a new game. Especially since I didn't mention it but the game offers co-op! I just need to find a friend with a sense of humor as twisted as mine and the developers...

8.5 / 10.0 - Splatoon 3
Sep 7, 2022

Splatoon 3 delivers the best solo campaign of the series so far and it’s a whole lot of fun. With a wide variety of challenges that make you use all of the many weapons of the game; you will want more and more. On the competitive side, it's unfortunate that Nintendo doesn't introduce new modes, but the variety of maps and weapons should satisfy the fans. On my end, I plan to spend a lot of time in the new and better Salmon Run which will now be active 24/7. Overall, Splatoon 3 still shines with its unique approach, but we expect Nintendo to deliver multiple free updates to keep us inked in.

8.5 / 10.0 - F1 Manager 2022
Sep 6, 2022

Being a racing and management game fan, I was looking forward to this F1 Manager 2022. On the whole, I was not disappointed. The title developed by Frontier Developpements has once again proven its know-how. We find a very complete management experience with a successful integration of the discipline and even a little more with the young drivers. The internal camera during the sessions on the track is simply amazing and the game offers a good visual identity. Nevertheless, I would have hoped to be able to start my career in a lesser discipline to climb the ladder, a better management of the AI in races and maybe a greater level of realism in the accidents on the track. However, I can't hide the fact that I am very excited that such a prestigious license is in the hands of such a talented team. The base is there, it only remains to refine.

The Last of Us Part I offers an impressive rebuild of a game that is so emotionally captivating. It is absolutely worth revisiting Joel and Ellie’s journey whether it’s your first or second visit into this post apocalyptic world. Naughty Dog delivered a clinic on our to create a remake of a relatively recent gen.

9.5 / 10.0 - Immortality
Aug 30, 2022

Immortality is an experience in itself. The game is hugely ambitious, but manages to deliver on every level. You will be on the tip of your toes for many hours trying to discover the fate of Marissa Marcel. Immortality is a total success. I guarantee you will be surprised by what you discover throughout the story reels.

Although there's a very repetitive nature to the game, it is a very good compliment to the movie. Its very accessible which is perfect for a young audience and the progression system is actually pretty good. Even though I don't think it will please the older generations, it should make your kids smile a lot.

8.5 / 10.0 - Two Point Campus
Aug 21, 2022

Two Point Campus is a very relaxing game, which fits perfectly between more stressful and action oriented games. It's fun to create a life at University in your image and try to be the best school of all. The game remains a simulator, but the arcade aspect of the title is definitely very present. Finally, the fact that its on Game Pass makes it very accessible, but we definitely do prefer playing it on PC.

Blossom Tales 2 is a good game, but it won't shine since others took the exact same approach and delivered a better experience. However, it could be a good starting point to those new to the genre or a great option for those that beat all the other games of this style and ask for more. Despite its very affordable price, it comes short in innovation to really stand out.

9 / 10.0 - Cult of the Lamb
Aug 17, 2022

Cult of the Lamb is a perfect blend of roguelike and farming simulator which stands out because of the many original cultist elements. Massive Monster did an amazing job to immerse the player into this very dark world and it's just so much fun to play the lamb god. The game offers a good 20 hours of gameplay that I simply flew by and at a very affordable cost.

8.5 / 10.0 - Rollerdrome
Aug 16, 2022

Rollerdrome is, in my opinion, one of the beautiful nuggets of 2022. The gameplay is very well balanced despite the absence of a modifiable difficulty. The actions that we follow offer a real satisfaction as well on the sound level as on the visual level. On this level, the artistic direction allows the title to stand out while the technique offers a fluid and spectacular experience. Roll7's new license should undoubtedly appeal to fans, but also to all players who want to impress the world with online rankings. While the basic premise is simple enough, the overall experience is diverse enough to rarely feel like you're doing the same thing. I say rarely, because in the end it's true that you start over and over again the same levels to increase your score on them. However, in my opinion, this is a very small flaw for a very high quality experience.

7 / 10.0 - Voyage
Aug 13, 2022

Voyage is a good little game that's worth discovering. The game aims to be a simple and relaxing experience in a very artistic settings. To that extent, we can say that it delivers. However, the simplicity is not for everyone and some players will not like this lack of challenge. Voyage is unfortunately very short and would have deserved other environments with other puzzles. I recommend you try it when you want to sit down, relax and not think too much.

The PC version of Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered has been developed. It is a perfect adaptation of the original adventure, but with features to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the experience. If you respect the minimum and suggested configurations, you shouldn't encounter any glaring problems. The use of an SSD is highly recommended in order to have fast loading times just like on consoles. The strong point of the port is undoubtedly its compatibility with monitors offering other types of resolutions. Not to mention the possibility of unlocking the refresh rate if desired. All you have to do is check that your machine is compatible and take control of Peter Parker!

With Capcom Arcade Stadium 2nd, I had a lot of fun. I recommend you to download the basic game and discover the virtual arcade, because it's gorgeous! And you will definitely find something to suit your taste. The first one is still available for download too.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is an ok game that must be viewed first and foremost as an intro to the much bigger project: Hundred Heroes. The cast of character is interesting, but the overall plot is a bit boring, and the side quests are uninspired. We mostly enjoyed the art and the fact that you can instantly switch between three characters in a unique way. If you like Japanese games and you have Game Pass, it's worth a shot. Otherwise, even though it comes from the same studio, don't expect this to be the great Suikoden spiritual successor that you are hoping for in their main Kickstarter project.

Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels is especially aimed at those who have already logged many hours on the title and want additional content. Fans of the famous small car brand will be happy to find some of the iconic models and drive them. Nevertheless, the missions offered are quite repetitive, even if the progression system is well implemented. I would have preferred to have more varied missions while the environments of this new playground are. Not to mention that the vast majority of the cars can be picked up without even accessing the DLC and are not really customizable. Still, I had a lot of fun returning to the title for a few hours. I felt like I was back in childhood again with my little cars.

It's a narrative game from start to finish with very little interaction required of you. And when they do come, the various choices will not change the result at all. However, the story is intriguing and will keep you hooked until the end and the visual style is sublime. It would be nice to say a lot more about the game but in all honesty, there is not much to add. The game ends rather quickly (about 3 hours) and whether it's your time of game or not, is entirely up to you. As for me, I recommend it for fans of the genre.

8 / 10.0 - Stray
Jul 30, 2022

Stray is the perfect game to rest. Be in a trance and let yourself be guided by the path in front of you. The game does not ask its player to put himself in a stressful situation. This is not too much in a world where there are many sources of stress and conflict. The puzzles are relatively easy for young and old alike. Well, we agree that if the game asked us to embody a dog it would be even better. Who knows, maybe the idea is already germinating in the studio's head. For now, we'll just purr and bend our backs. And let's not forget the nap. I like naps.
