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 – World of Final Fantasy

I have to admit that I got to the Final Fantasy party pretty late. The first FF game I ever played was FFIX back in PS1. I liked it so much that I ended buying (or asking my parents to buy me) VII, VIII and a bunch other games in the series but the point still stands, I was indeed late to the party because when I got FFIX I had never played the SNES ones or even VII and, to be honest, back then I barely played any RPGs at all.
I would be lying if I said this is my absolute favourite RPG franchise but, the Final Fantasy games are the ones that got me into this now beloved genre and for that, it holds a special place in my heart.

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.

Briefiew – Little Nightmares

The first time I saw anything about this game it gave me the vibe of being some sort of Little Big Planet game directed by Tim Burton. That alone has quite some potential so of course I was intrigued.
Of course, after getting more information on the game and now that I’ve even got my hands on the final product, I know that definition isn’t the most accurate. But the game we have here is still quite intriguing indeed.

Briefiew – Horizon: Zero Dawn

There’s this website called PSNProfiles which helps you keep track of your PSN Trophies. It shows that I’ve played 576 games as of today (only games that support trophies count) but, among all those, I’ve only platinumed 17. So yeah, you can’t consider me a trophy hunter. The thing is, one of the few platinums I have is the one for this game, Horizon: Zero Dawn. Does that mean that the platinum is easy? Maybe, but what it really means is that I enjoyed this title way more than the average game.

Briefiew – Mafia III

I still remember the first time I played this series. It was on PC many years ago, 15 maybe? I had seen and played Grand Theft Auto 3 but in comparison, the original Mafia looked like such a step up. Graphics were amazing and the gameplay felt so realistic. That 30’s Lost Heaven city was really a world to immerse in. I can’t remember how I managed to beat that infamous race mission but that’s beyond the point. What I’m trying to say is that the original Mafia game was kind of a staple in gaming for me so, since then I’ve felt like I’m almost in debt with the series so I just had to play the rest. Mafia II on PS3 was also a great game even if it would never reach the mythical status of the first one and now… there’s Mafia III.

Briefiew – Skyforge

Skyforge was first released as a PC game in 2015 and then re-released for the PS4 in April this year. It is a science-fiction, fantasy MMORPG where players create their characters and start a new adventure. It is set, in a futuristic world where fantasy and science are mixed. My first impression of this game was “wow, this game’s looking pretty neat, and it’s free!” So then I gave it a try…  and here is my review of it.

Briefiew – Gravity Rush 2

I played the first game of this series back when it was a PSVita exclusive and, even today, I still consider it one of the best games on that system. It’s the polar opposite of what you’d call a generic game. It may not go as far as to invent a new genre but it does create its own world, its own style and its own unique mechanics to build an experience that distinguishes itself from any other games.
I value that quite a bit in video games and, since I had such a pleasant experience with the first title, I just had to support this charming little franchise and acquire the second. Here’s my review on it.
