    A super short review of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

    DQXI is the last game I completed, and I don’t complete a lot of games. I was interested on the game because it was hugely anticipated, but the reviews put me off a little bit. Don’t get me wrong, the reviews are very positive – or at least most of them are, but they are not that level I wanted. The final push is a very good discount on the physical version, so I was like “What the hell” . Surprises, I was hooked. The good Very good “anime” styles. The game looks quite as good as the pre-rendered cutscenes. The game is very well rounded and very enjoyable. I…

    Super short review of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

    Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is the second Switch game I played, and the first one I actually enjoyed. Plus: It’s a Mario game Beautiful and vibrant world designs. In fact it might be the most cute game I’ve played. Can’t wait to play it with my children (but given it’s rated ESRB 7+, it’ll be quite some time. It’s XCOM without creepy creatures and scary moments. It does not have the strategy/tactical depth XCOM 2 has to provide, but it’s fun nonetheless. It’s easy to restart a battle and play differently for different outcome. The game is, surprisingly, smooth on Switch. Can’t say the same for XCOM 2 on…

    Super short review of God of War PS4

    One of the iconic characters on PlayStation, Kratos is known for his super violent nature, a tragedy past of betrayal, a thirst for revenge – and God of War is known for its brutal combat when you kill your enemies in most violent ways possible. The last major game in the series was God Of War 3 on PS3, released in 2011. 7 years is a long time to wait – and did Sony Santa Monica soft reboot of the series live up with the expectations? I’m happy to say, it does, and some more. I’m still early hours into the game, but yet I’m very impressed. An older Kratos…

    A super short review of Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    I’m still just 1/3 way through the game. Here’s some of my thoughts so far Hit: Gorgeous world. No it’s not the level of graphic detail of Horizon Zero Dawn, but given Switch’s processing power, the game looks absolutely amazing. Pyra is really cute (Talking about her face) Miss Pyra is overly sexualized. .Does Monolith need to let her wear a thong into battle. While it’s common in Japanese Role Playing Games (“fans service”, they said), it’s not what gaming should be. The fetch quests are really, really boring. They need to die. Looting is tedious. Too many “collection points”, too little value or interest for each of them. The…

    The super short review of Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Plus: The game is very well polished. Everything seems smooth, and I’m yet to see any game breaking bugs (I’m looking at you, Witcher 3, and XCOM 2) A vast, beautiful open world. Probably the most beautiful ever in a game.¬†Even on the original PS4, it looks spectacular. PS4 Pro + HDR will blow your mind away – well, Sony made¬†sure the game is a showcase for PS4 Pro, so that’s expectedIf you think Rise of Tomb Raider was visually stunning, think again. HZD easily blows it out of water. In short, it will drop your jaw! The combats versus machines are engaging and rewarding. The bigger, badder the robot,…

    Big and beautiful: A quick Phillips BDM3270QP review

    My screen finally arrived and I’ve spent a couple of days playing with it. It is the screen I wanted, and I tried to search about it quite a lot, but the English content about it is quite limited, so I decide to write one here, in case you’re looking for some reviews before buying it. Why BDM3270QP? In the specs, this screen is completely a steal. 32 inches, QHD (2560×1440) resolution, AMVA native 10-bit panel (without RFC, so 1.07 billion of true colors), stand which supports titling, pivoting etc,… And it’s only 4390 SEK here (equivalent to 534 USD, but hey, I am in Sweden, where everything is crazily…
