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 – Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero

This time around I don’t really have any personal history with this gaming series. Before I got the chance to play this game I had heard about the Shantae series and I had heard very good things about it actually but I had never personally played any Shantae game ever.
So, this was a blank slate for me, nothing particular to expect from the game but this would become my standard as what to expect from the Shantae games in the future. What a responsibility for such a tiny game card…

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 – 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.
