Briefiew – Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles

The video game medium, like any other art form, is in constant evolution. That being said, even with the amount of diversity within games nowadays, outside of sport games and job simulators, most games are about violence. There may be people, aliens, robots or zombies and you have to either kill them or at least fight them (or maybe run from them as they’d try to end you instead).
I’d be lying if I said that I’m tired of violent games, some of my favourite games are indeed very violent (and even gory) but, it’s kind of sad that some of the games that do try to move away from the “violent formula” are being undervalued and considered lesser as games.

Briefiew – Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash

It’s march 21st and that means that the long winter is finally over. It’s time to take off our scarves and enjoy the flowers and the sun or, more probably, the rain. Yeah, it’s still a long way until the warm summer arrives but we can already get in the mood with some games if they’re like this.
Senran Kagura goes to the beach …as if the mainline games didn’t have enough fanservice.

Top 10 Cars I want on GT Sport

Gran Turismo Sport might be the best looking and most polished GT game ever made but, when it comes to content, it’s clearly behind most of the other titles released by Poliphony. However, while Gran Turismo 2 might had released with over 500 cars back in 1999, due to the lack of online support, the number of cars offered never grew beyond that.
That’s not the case for GT Sport. during these months the game has been receiving plenty of patches and updates adding more game modes, tracks, and specially cars. Still, the game is way behind to the thousand cars you could drive in GT6 so there’s many I wish that would come back (and also new ones) and that’s what this top 10 is about. Here are 10 cars that I wish were available in GT Sport.

Briefiew – Everybody’s Golf

Is it weird that I owned an Everybody’s Golf game for every Playstation console? Considering that I don’t care about golfing as a sport in the slightest, it does feel quite strange even to me. I don’t play golf in real life and I certainly don’t watch it on TV either. The biggest gesture I’d do for the sport would be not switching off the TV whenever a golf related story might pop up on the news.
But, like I said, I still owned at least a game in this franchise for every playstation console… And I liked them!

Briefiew – Shadow of the Colossus

I initially rented this game more than ten years ago at a local video store. I managed to beat it but I still bought a copy for my PS2. Then When the Ico & Shadow of the Colossus HD remaster came out, I bought it again for my PS3.
Last year, when this new “remake” was announced I was reticent. I promised myself I wouldn’t dip in and buy the same game for a third time but then the game was released a couple weeks ago and I bought it again.
That doesn’t speak very kindly of my power of will but Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favourite games of all time so… yeah.

Briefiew – Persona 5

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure about if I should write this review or not. On one hand, if you’ve been following the gaming media or just checked metacritic, you’ll know already that this game is really great and the fact that I even included this title on the second spot for the best games of 2017 already tells that I’m not dissenting from that popular opinion either.
On the other hand, I spent over a hundred hours playing this game and I enjoyed them too much to not spend a couple more to deservedly praise it in an article like this.
In any case, there might be someone out there who isn’t sure about purchasing it and wants to know why some people like me enjoyed Persona 5 that much. If that’s the case for you, please continue reading.

Briefiew – Kromaia Omega

Sometimes I feel obligated to review certain games as if to check them off a list and, it’s pretty silly. In the end, those are the kind of games that were already reviewed by a hundred other gaming sites before me so I doubt anybody will ever feel the need to read my personal take on the game.
On the other hand, there’s times where I play this “almost unknown” title and I like it so much that I feel like more people should get to know about it. So I write a review on it and hope some lost soul will pick it off the bottom of the internet and then that review will spark on him an interest on the game. That’s what I hope it’ll happen but even then it’s also an unlikely situation.
In any case, this is my review for Kromaia Omega. A game I never heard about before picking it up from a bargain bin last month.

Briefiew – What remains of Edith Finch

This game made the fourth spot for my list on my 10 favourite games of 2017 so right off the bat you can guess I really liked this game. Why waste my time writting this article when it’s already pretty clear that I’d definitely recommend this game? On one hand, it’s because I’m pretty dumb and, on the other, because I guessed I’d be able to convince more people to try and experience this game if I describe it better to them on a full article devoted to it like this one. So let’s start!

Briefiew – Knack 2

The original Knack game was launch title for the PS4 and it certainly wasn’t the best well received game from that initial batch. I don’t want to jump into that bandwagon and hate on it because I honestly never played it. After having spent 400 bucks on that brand new console you feel like you have to be very selective on the games you pick for it because your wallet is already almost empty so… Knack didn’t happen for me.
Four years later a sequel to the not-so-acclaimed title appeared and this time around I plunged in. A 3D platformer in 2017 and for a reduced price? What was there to lose?

2017’s PSX Roundup

This year’s Playstation Experience came and went (mostly) and stuff happened on it. I can say that pretty much like with every other Sony-held “conference” this year, it wasn’t bad but it certainly wasn’t great either. There is already a bunch of announced big games coming on PS4 that won’t be released at least until 2018 so expecting any big announcement from this was already discarded. That being said, we did get some announcements and a whole lot of information on games we already knew were coming. Here’s my summary / opinion on the most interesting stuff we saw there.
