Briefiew – The Bunker

Does the acronym FMV mean anything to you? It was a marketing buzzword like any other and it meant Full Motion Video. That “technique” consisted basically in filming real actors and making an interactive piece around it. It may be confusing nowadays but this was kind of a big thing in gaming for a (short) period of time.
Probably the most famous FMV video game of all might be Night Trap which has been revisited/remastered and ported to PS4 recently. Having the game a spooky premise and such, it’d be a great opportunity to review the title but… I’d rather review something good.

Briefiew – Ride 2

This is the first time I get to review a sequel to a game I’ve previously reviewed too. It’s a strange sensation, makes me feel like I’ve been around for a while even though it’s only been a year and a half so far. Anyway, these are only feelings I’ve got as I started writting down this piece, the important part is my experience with the game at hand, Ride 2.

Briefiew – Carmageddon: Max Damage

As a 90’s kid and an enthusiast of games featuring cars, you might imagine that I have a nostalgia for this franchise but I really don’t. It’s not like I didn’t play the game back in the day because my parents wouldn’t let me, no. Back in the day I had the PS1 european version of this game and I could have played it to my heart’s content but this game was never among my favourites. The problem may not have been with the game on its whole but with the specific censored port of the game I had to play.
In any case, it’s been almost 20 years since then. That’s a lot of time and a massive boost on technology so I figured this could be the perfect chance to give this controversial franchise another try.

Briefiew – Nex Machina

Last time I got to talk about a Housmarque game was in august of last year in my Alienation review. Back then I already mentioned how I had enjoyed (to various degrees) every game I’ve played from that studio and, in fact, Alienation wasn’t an exception either.
So, with that in mind, of course I had to play Nex machina and of course I will play Matterfall sometime in the future but, first things first, this review.

Briefiew – Yakuza 0

Here I’m facing a very difficult task which is to write this briefiew. In the past, the briefiews I struggled the most to write were because those games left me with mixed feelings but that’s not the case this time around.
The problem here is that briefiews are supposed to be brief (of course) but this game is ridiculously massive. I’ll try to be concise but I can’t promise you anything here.

Briefiew: Injustice 2

When Injustice: Gods Among Us came out i was so excited to play that game because not only fighting games are one of my top games to play but i’m also a DC Universe fan. To be honest i didn’t think it was going to have a sequel or anything like that so here we are 4 years later and Injustice 2 came out. I was so thrilled and couldn’t wait for the release date and to get my hands on it and play it. So here are my thoughts and honest review about it.

Briefiew – Nier Automata

I’m not really sure what made me buy the original Nier for PS3. I made very little research on it honestly and the reviews on it weren’t very favorable. I do remember reading at a gaming forum that the story of the game was really special and I guess that was enough to spark my interest.
What made me buy Nier Automata then? The original game. I fell in love with Nier, its story, its music, its characters, its tragic world and all of the japanese quirkyness sprinkled all over it. It wasn’t a perfect game and I’d be very selective on the kind of player I would recommend that game for but I love that game.
When a sequel to Nier was announced at the 2015’s E3 I squealed like a little girl and I knew that no matter what I would end up playing that game. I purchased it, played it, got all of its “main” endings and now I’ll review it.

Briefiew – Wipeout Omega Collection

I wasn’t planning on buying this game. I’m a big racing fan, and I’ve always enjoyed the Wipeout series (except for Fusion) but, the thing is, liking this series has made me do something really strange which is… buying its games. I happen to own Wipeout HD and Fury and also Wipeout 2048 for the Vita already and they both looked and played fenomenally on their original systems so I didn’t feel the need to double dip and get them again for the PS4.
The problem is that I walked into a retail store the other day and I saw this case next to a very tempting reduced price tag and I couldn’t resist.
