Persona 5 Strikers Review, A Dream Sequel For P5 Fans

With more than 3 million copies of Persona 5 sold worldwide, it was clear that Atlus would exploit the vein to the end. Thus, after Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 5 Royal , the publisher has decided to go further by offering a real sequel to its cult RPG, but through a genre that changes in favor of the "Warriors" style of Omega Force, the situation is totally explosive for the fans as the game has to live up to its illustrious prequel. What about the European version on PC? Atlus promised us and the publisher kept his word. Persona 5 Strikers offers French subtitles, as the "Royal" reissue of the previous episode, which makes it easier for French-speaking players to understand the plot. Fans and even neophytes of the Persona 5 series can thus discover the rest of the adventures of the Phantom Thieves in the best conditions. Also, English dubbing, in addition to the Japanese one, completes a very good localization job. No major translation errors or e

Little Nightmares 2 Review - A Game Below The Expectations On Switch

In line with the cinematic platformers of Playdead , Little Nightmares , the first of the name, has managed to find its audience. With a singular universe, this experience, not free from faults, was a classic adventure in its structure, but very effective. What about this second installment you may ask me? Did it learn from the past to make his grievances disappear and outdo his elder brother? Let's find more. A LOT OF NOISE FOR NOTHING? From the first moment, the legacy of the studio behind Limbo and Inside is more obvious than ever. The adventure opens with a gloomy forest from which our new hero, dressed in a paper bag to hide his face, must extract himself. Trunk rolling down a slope threatening to flatten us, wolf traps, crows, a chase sequence where the hero will have to hide in gray areas ... A known imagery and situations already encountered by anyone who has touched the titles of Playdead . From a strictly narrative point of view, I was disappointed by Little Nightmares 2

Turrican Flashback Review - A Light Compilation For An Exceptional Series

Shaped by Manfred Trenz and the Factor 5 team on behalf of Rainbow Arts , Turrican is one of the most iconic series of the early 1990s. Mixing the mechanics of a Metroid with those of a run & gun, the title born on Commodore 64 and Amiga has forged an excellent reputation among fans of the genre. Strikingly beautiful on release, the game was noted for its edgy gameplay and exceptional Chris Hülsbeck soundtrack. While the two Turrican Anthology compilations should arrive in the coming weeks (they are in advance on the Strictly Limited site), ININ Games is taking the lead with this Turrican Flashback . Bringing together four episodes, it is available on PlayStation 4 (PlayStation 5 compatible) and Nintendo Switch and will bring back fond memories to those who roamed the Alterra colony three decades ago (for rejuvenation, it's a gift ). However, we would have liked the compilation not to be limited to 4 games and a few filters ... Turrican , what's that name? If you have no

Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood Review: A Fallen Werewolf

Role-playing games are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for studios and publishers who rarely miss the opportunity to adapt these acquired franchises to the cause of video game fans. The Baldur’s Gate and Shadowrun saga or Cyberpunk 2077 to name a few, the examples are legion. Now it's the turn of Cyanide in collaboration with Nacon to lend themselves to the exercise and to get their claws out. Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is the Action-RPG adaptation of the eponymous role-playing game. The wolf, after a long hibernation, is about to emerge from its den. THE PACT OF THE WOLVES Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood takes for framework a contemporary universe close to ours in many ways, and yet so different. On this alternate Earth, the balance of power is in jeopardy. The Wyrm, the evil incarnation leading the world to destruction and chaos, is gaining ground. Faced with rampant industrialization, a direct consequence of human activity, the Dark World is on the

Disjunction Review - Not enough to blow your mind

It comes from Poland and takes place in a cyberpunk universe. No, this is not CD Projekt's latest behemoth, but Disjunction , a small indie game with much more modest ambitions by Ape Tribe Games . So put on your special “big pixel” cybernetic retinas, and try to survive the review that will follow. Like almost all cyberpunk cities, the New York of Disjunction is not quite the representation we have of a paradise on Earth: large-scale organized crime, turf battles between corporations, all of it. under the background of corruption, this is the daily life that will await our dear trio. Because you do not control one, but three characters, whose narrative lines will intersect as the scenario progresses, to update the distribution network of the Shard. It is a new drug spreading across the city, greatly threatening the future of the Big Apple.  And who says multiple characters say specific capacities: I also find a guy named Frank, ex-NYPD detective whose specialty will be rather disc

TOHU Game Review - A Soothing and Colorful Point'n Click

After the very stealthy Spirit Roots , a small platformer intended for mobile devices and also the studio's first game, Fireart Games gave birth on January 28, 2021, to TOHU . Still in 2D, exit the platforms and this time move on to the point'n click adventure, wishing to keep a cute and colorful paw. Sold for a cheap price, the indie title published by The Irregular Corporation is available in dematerialized form on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, which is a step forward for developers with regard to their previous creation. Does this extra step translate into success? This is what we will see together. I tested TOHU version 1.01 on PlayStation 4 Pro (rated version 0.99 on the title screen). The adventure was over after 6-7 hours of play. Planet fish alert On one of the many fish-shaped planets of an unusual galaxy, a mysterious threat arrives and sows destruction. In order to save the place and its inhabitants from dawning danger, a little girl and her rob

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Two and a half years after its release, Dead Cells tirelessly continues to be updated. True "service game" of the rogue-lite, the title of Motion Twin does not have much to prove. This new paid DLC comes with a little bit of slack, and we are very happy to refill it. Fatal Falls is also the second paid DLC of Dead Cells , after The Bad Seed . On the menu: two new "biomes", a new boss, a handful of enemies to discover, and new patterns to unlock. The program is also rather agreed and the quantity of novelties seems in all respects similar to what we already found on The Bad Seed . But the strength of this DLC is probably the inventiveness of these two new levels ("The Broken Temples" then "The Eternal Shores"), which are apprehended in an opposite way. First of all, I should say that these new environments are not accessible from prison, as was the case in The Bad Seed . You have to beat the Concierge beforehand (1st boss of the game) to be abl

Olija Game Review: Another Good Fishing For Devolver

It's been a few years since we know: the independent projects supported by Devolver are to watch like milk on fire. The fact that a certain Olija , in preparation for several years at Skeleton Crew , landed in the hands of the irreverent editor last summer necessarily makes you want to be interested. It's done. No regrets, because this is a game that does not take us too far. This is a story about a storm, and, about a shipwreck. But it is also the story of a scattered crew and about an abandoned captain who will try everything to get back home, with his crew. But for that, he will have to fight. Faraday, it is the name of this penniless fisherman who thought to find wealth in the Japanese seas, is found after being caught by the depths prisoner of a hostile country, Egremonde. The surf, or rather fate, led him to a curious compass that allowed him to get his hands on a singular harpoon. This weapon is his salvation. On the one hand, because the natives like the local fauna hav

Gods Will Fall Review - A Mixed Dungeon RPG With Good Ideas

Halfway between a Roguelite and a Dungeon-RPG, Gods Will Fall is an independent game that relies on the challenge and a fairly personal conception of progression to arouse the curiosity of players. I had the opportunity to try it in preview (and exclusively), here are my impressions about the game. I had the opportunity to play a beta on Steam with one of my friends. Given the difficulty of the title, I was able to complete several more runs afterward. Half of the content was also missing. Celtic guardians Inspired by films like Band of Brothers or games like Cannon Fodder on Amiga, Gods Will Fall features a group of Celtic warriors who are humanity's last hope. In order to put an end to the tyranny of the gods who demand uncompromising submission, they will have to defeat the ten divine tyrants by traversing equally numerous dungeons. We start our adventure after a shipwreck on an island that we can explore at our leisure and without risk. It is a huge, cleverly disguised hub wh
