Jumping in the shadows: Contrast

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here! Contrast is like that food you are not sure if you like: smells tasty, has a regular flavour but in the end you get used to it. I got hooked by the atmosphere as soon as I knew about its existence on Steam, and wait a…

Why I still love Resident Evil 5

Contains  spoilers, be warned already! Ah, Resident Evil 5! The vegan brother, the different one, the black sheep. With this title the Resident Evil franchise trembled, losing the essence of survival horror that characterized the earlier games. However, not every change is bad: RE5 offered a new perspective of killing zombies which I’m pretty fond…

Dead Space : what your engineer degree wasn’t about

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here!

Outlast 2, a fuzzy sequel

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here!

The previous title of the franchise made me jump from my chair several times and grow a dull anxiety in…

The Witcher II : the slaughtering continues

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here! The 2n title with the charismatic Geralt of Rivia as a protagonist brought some improvements respect to the previous one and achieved to gain a decent fame.

Streamline: the forsaken game

[No spoiler alert required] If Sunset Overdrive and Jet Set Radio had an unattended child, the name would probably be Streamline. When I got the game for free thanks to an event I was like wow can’t wait to try this funky futuristic and weird title! Feeling excited at the very beginning, my hype vanished…

The purity of LostWinds

Contains spoilers! An adventure isn’t always a thrilling fight against a creature with fangs and claws. The journey to achieve a bigger goal is also considered one. LostWinds reflects this statement with a chilled, mystical game from the core to the skin, focused on saving the planet from an evil, cliché creature. The premise of…

We Actually Don’t Need Life is Strange 2

Life is Strange is an amazing game which gave me some new ideas from different perspectives. It felt unique, special and established a strong connection with me, the player. After knowing about the second part and watching the trailer, I’m ready to shoutout it: we don’t need Life is Strange 2, and there are many…

Woolfe-The Red Hood Diaries : another dull tale

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here! Fairy tales are great scenarios for games. With a few twists a story passed among generations can be turned into a creepy, dull, sadic story. A quick look to Alice Madness Returns or The Wolf Among Us should do the trick. But I’m not going into…

Dark Souls II : a hollow’s journey

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here! Dark Souls III shook the world, attracting a huge amount of new players to the saga.

Tomb Raider and Lara’s evolution to survive

Contains spoilers? Nope/ Slightly / Some of them / Get out of here! From my point of view, Lara Croft was tended to be sexualized a bit much in the films. She appears being just a hot, arrogant chick holding two pistols and shooting to everything that moved around. The first old school games of the saga were pretty…
