Nioh 2 – Review

What makes a title action, an perfect Souls-like? To make that is perhaps its structure in the checkpoint, the system of character progression, or even its combat system exquisitely technical? Probably the answer to this question is a combination of multiple factors, the fact is that in the past few years someone has tried to solve the puzzle, trying to match the achievements from the famous video game series of FromSoftware, who straddles two generations of console has been able to impose on the market, by itself, a new kind of reference capable of moving the interest of the masses. Of course, Hidetaka Miyazaki and his continue to lay down the law on the subject as shown by the success achieved by Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and yet almost exactly one year away, we find ourselves strugglin...

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire (PS4) – Review

“Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate.” – Captain Jack Sparrow was right. The true treasure is made of Obsidian. Pros: Excellent gameplay Good story A visual treat (with rose tinted glasses on, of course) Cons: A few hitches Ship management is dull Score – 9/10 Pillars of Eternity 2 follows the story in a new part of the world, Deadfire archipelago. It came with a better gameplay, more action-based, especially for the magic classes that now can use their spells X times per fight rather than Y times between each rest. It now allows multiclassing, which feels refreshing and gives a new level of complexity for the team builds. It also gives the choice between two very distinct gameplays : real time with pause (like PoE 1), and turn-based combats. Each is enjoyable...

Areia: Pathway to Dawn – Review

Areia: Pathway to Dawn is a third person adventure game about enlightenment and the journey that leads to it. It leans more on the relaxing end of things than an intense video game experience, much like Journey – and it really is an interesting game to play. Areia: Pathway to Dawn is inspired by Hindu and Buddhist religious themes, and as an Indian who understands Hinduism fairly well, this was a nice surprise – the levels are also named after places in the Hindu mythology. The gameplay is simple – you walk around exploring a world that’s gorgeous to look at. And you also a solve a few simple puzzles along the way – they never get too difficult, but do get more intricate the more you play. If you’ve enjoyed Journey, then Areia: Pathway to Dawn is a defin...

Planet Zoo: Arctic Pack – Review

Planet Zoo has been easily one of the best games of 2019, and I had been itching to get my hands on more content for the game – cue in Arctic Pack and my Winter break could not have gone better! With a lot of new additions and features, Arctic Pack rejuvenated my joy of playing Planet Zoo. New animals and environments have been added, all with their own conditions and requirements for upkeep, and the whole gameplay loop is just so satisfying. A total of four new animals have been added – Arctic Wolf, Polar Bear, Reindeer, and Dall Sheep. Sadly, while there are Arctic biomes to create, not enough new plants and trees have been added to give the proper Arctic feel. this might be my only gripe with the DLC pack so far, otherwise there’s a lot here to invest some long hours b...

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels – Review

NArcos: Rise of the Cartels follows the events from the hit Netflix TV show, Narcos, and puts you in control of both sides of the infamous drug war. You can play as many of the main characters from the show, and visit various locations from the show as well. You can play as Primo, Pena and other characters. The game actually looks kinda really nice. There’s a lot of detail to take in, and fighting across rooftops, or slowly creeping up towards the enemy feels satisfying. It’s top down isometric, and plays out like an Xcom game, with a decent amount of depth and strategy. The enemy AI can be a bit weak, and the gameplay loops flows in a way which only allows only character to move per turn, and then the enemy moves, so at times it can feel like only one character is getting to t...

Bee Simulator – Review

I know it’s easy to disregard yet another simulator game, especially in the world of Dude and Bread Simulators. However, Bee Simulator really surprised me by not being another funny joke, but actually a fun game with thought put into it. As the name suggests, you play as a Bee going about their daily business. You’re pretty much playing out it’s day to day activities, set against the backdrop of humans trying to cut off the trees where the bee lives, or other natural predators like birds and wasps coming after it. The gameplay is actually surprisingly fun – the flight mechanics are on point and the bee is intuitive to control. You fly around looking for flowers, and the journey itself is rather delightful and informative – you get to learn about the bee’...

Age of Wonders: Planetfall – Revelations – Review

Age of Wonders: Planetfall was a really great at launch – the only thing i wanted from tha game was more of it – and the new DLC, Revelations – does just that. It adds more content to the game in almost every facet, including some much needed quality of life elements. Age of Wonders: Planetfall was already an exciting strategy game where you build a massive empire, by choosing from one of many given factions – you played to the faction’s strengths, and strategically made progress. Revelations gives you access to the Es’Teq dynasty, whose Heritor descendants aim to use ancient technology and reincarnate billions of followers across the galaxy, establishing divine rule. You can now explore ancient sites and uncover relics of great power – it’s up to ...

Battletech: Heavy Metal – Review

Battletech: Heavy Metal is the latest DLC content for Battletech, a mech focused strategy game with a lot of depth and a ton of strategic elements. Heavy Metal adds to the already dense game, with 7 new mechs, new weapons, and a small campaign story. The story is rather simplistic – you’re chasing after a derelict cargo ship that has been caught on the radar, and it’s a race to get to it first and uncover the secrets. The new mechs and the weapon systems are the real draw here, and they are fantastic. New mechs have their own unique abilities, and it’s fun to play around with them. All of them offern new ways to approach every encounter, and it’s really enjoyable mixing them together with the different weapon systems. AOE weapons are also added with this DLC &...
