It is a beat'em up game that you can enjoy even if you don't know much about Three Kingdoms or River City series. The game shows great action scenes compared to its simple controls, so anyone can easily grab the controller and have some fun. Also, you can enjoy the process of becoming stronger by collecting various skills.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 once again proved why the series is one of the best JRPGs out there. While inheriting the strengths of its predecessors and converge them into its own uniqueness, it also did not put aside the original elements. However, somewhat boring sequence and endless TIPs at the beginning make the game hard to immerse yourself.

7.8 / 10.0 - Digimon Survive
Aug 3, 2022

Digimon Survive delivers a much heavier vibe compared to existing series, expressing the agony and overcoming stories of ordinary children, not heroes. Although it is a quality title as a visual novel, the tactics battle part is very ordinary and the visual effect is also a bit bland.

The atmospheric pixel based visuals with dark fantasy vibe are pleasing to the eyes. And the challenging boss battle represents the unique tension of Souls-like. However, the balance of weapon upgrade system and the overall tension of the game collapse simultaneously after the second half of the game.

Endling is a very impressive game with the way it delivers message without lines, excellent visuals and sounds that match the atmosphere. Though the frequent loading time on Switch and repetitive gameplay are a bit disappointing, the game is faithful with delivering a message which is quite intense.

7.6 / 10.0 - Before The Night
Jul 23, 2022

A horror game that shakes people's mind even without common jump scares. A crazy world-view where cuteness and grotesque coexist and solid storytelling became key spices to add the fun to its gameplay. However, monotonous puzzle and complicated action seem to not blend well with its horror element.

A tribute to the true cat lovers. Any gamer who loves cats is bound to fall in love with the great details of the cat looking just like real ones. But when you turn the eyes to where cats do not exist, you will face simple, linear game structure made out of monotonous puzzle and short volume.

7.4 / 10.0 - MADiSON
Jul 20, 2022

Numerous jump scares, logical and challenging puzzles, and psychological horror that shake your mind. It is worth considering that MADiSON has the best core elements among recent horror games. However, the links between the narrative and puzzles may not be easily found due to lack of hints.

6.5 / 10.0 - Time on Frog Island
Jul 19, 2022

In the positive side, Time on Frog Island is a very easy and relaxing game. However, it also can be mean that it has shallow game play. The game surely has a wonderful, deep background scenery, but it feels like they didn't make a good use of all of it.

3.5 / 10.0 - XEL
Jul 16, 2022

A new game that combines classic Zelda-like gameplay design and sci-fi story. While the adventure part is enough to enjoy, the lack of convenience feature makes it hard to believe that the game is released in 2022. Also, the bugs are scattered all over the place to the point where it is almost difficult to proceed the game. It needs to be improved quickly.

3.2 / 10.0 - Neon Blight
Jul 16, 2022

The game's concept and setting - a resistence running a gun shop in the dystopian cyberpunk world - were interesting. On the other hand, the shooting part is boring and store managing part is as lifeless as an empty can. Lastly, it is almost impossible to believe that the game is officially released because of so many bugs. It even made me feel like I paid to become a QA.

Even after 25 years, its fairytale-like story and easy control using only three moves and two buttons are still enjoyable. The level of difficulty of this game is enough for the beginners, also the story can appeal to anyone. However, the game is a bit too easy for core gamers and the volume is insufficient to reveal all the mysteries behind the stories.

7.1 / 10.0 - Gwent: Rogue Mage
Jul 12, 2022

GWENT: Rogue Mage have mixed well the core of Gwent with Rogue-lite element. However, overall strategy aspect became slightly dull by the decision of eliminating one of the characteristic of Gwent, rounds system. despite these efforts to make the game easier, it seems the poor tutorial still keeps the beginners away from the game. It surely needs an update that suits with its purpose.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak reached even closer to the franchises's core with new monsters, their patterns and overall action. Although there is little novelty, it is a DLC that has been satisfactorily expanded the original for fans of the series. I am not saying there are no shortcomings, but the game provides so much fun that you don't have to worry about them.

In game design wise, 'Fobia' is a great homage to the classic Survival Horrors such as Resident Evil. While the action part against the monster is rather sloppy, the hotel's level design and terrifying atmosphere are quite impressive.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes seems to succeed in both capturing the essence of its original and embodying the enjoyable action that musou series always offer. While the amount of information on its complicated system can be a problem for newcomers, it is certain that the game gives new experience from if once you are adapted to it.

8 / 10.0 - DNF Duel
Jun 28, 2022

DNF Duel is a fighting game with great respect to its original IP. While the game providing deep sense of duel, its easy control system makes anyone can adapt into the game's mechanic. Though the collectable system and convenience in training mode are not as good as its graphic and sound quality, it is certain that both DNF fans and fighting fans can enjoy this.
