Deus Ex – Not so Fun but still Memorable

Deus Ex, released in the year 2000 and developed by Ion Storm, one of the most beloved games of its time and still regarded by fans as one the best games ever made but 17th years after its release does it still hold its charm?

This time I’m not writing a review but rather my overall thoughts on the game, its influence and pretty much how I think it is to play it today for someone who didn’t have the chance to play it when it was released.

Deus Ex, for those that are not aware, is a futuristic, cyberpunk RPG First Person Shooter hybrid. Here I think it’s worth mentioning the first thing to be aware of: Deus Ex is much more RPG than First Person Shooter. Not accepting that will certainly hindrance much of the enjoyment one would have with the game playing it for the first time today. Continue reading

Resident Evil 7 – Review

resident_evil_7_biohazard__pc_boxartResident Evil is among my favorite franchises for many years, together with Final Fantasy and Metal Gear. After The action packed Resident Evil 5 and the disaster that is Resident Evil 6, combined with Capcom DLC practices in recent years I have to admit I’ve had little faith this franchise would once again be a shadow of what it once was. This is one of those days I love to be wrong! The daddy of survival horror is back!

The story starts with you receiving a message from your loved one, Mia, which has been missing from the past 3 years. You go look for her in this strange house in Louisiana where strange things start to happen. Continue reading

3001804-0839498132-28769Uncharted 4, the lastest and possibly the last journey of Nathan Drake arrived on the Playstation 4 on May 2016 and just now I got a chance to play it.

Uncharted became one of my all time favorite franchises and certainly my favorite from the last generation of videogames, so how does it fare now that it has jumped to the Playstion 4?

inFamous: First Light – Short Review

infflps4What a pleasant surprise! I got this game as a Playstation Plus user but back then I didn’t have a Playstation 4 at the time. Now for whatever reason I decided to give it a try, even though I heard it wasn’t as good as Infamous Second Son, which I did not have played so far. What I can say is that if Infamous Second Son is so much better then First Light, I can’t wait to put my hands on it because fantastic!

This is a stand alone DLC, so one doesn’t need to own Infamous Second Son to play it, but with that in mind, this is still a much shorter game. From what I understand, you only have access to a small portion of the city which in the original game is much bigger. Even so, every part of it is beautiful, detailed and a joy to see. The graphics in this game are great. It is really incredible when you see developers getting better as time goes. But thankfully not only in graphics but in gameplay as well. Continue reading

Mana Khemia: Student Alliance Review

mana khemia coverAfter becoming a fan of the Atelier series since I played Rorona way back when it was released now I’ve decided to go back to some earlier titles. I always though a portable version of these games would be great so I could try out my alchemy skills anywhere and when I saw Mana Khemia: Student Alliance on the Playstation Store I decided to give it a go.
