BGS 2018: Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Amorous Adventure DLC brings comedy to Bohemia

Kingdom Come: Deliverance seems to have become one of my traditional stops whenever I’m in a trade show nowadays. I’ve seen it way before it was out at E3, a second time when it was just about ready to be released, and now, for a third, in my hometown of São Paulo during Brazil Game… Continue reading BGS 2018: Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Amorous Adventure DLC brings comedy to Bohemia

BGS 2018: Toy Story convinced me to give Kingdom Hearts III a try — I had a blast

I have to make an admission: I quit trying to get into Kingdom Hearts early. I gave my best trying to play the original games on PlayStation 2, but after some horrendous platforming, I gave up. The series lore is one of the most hyped things about it, but for that very reason, I was… Continue reading BGS 2018: Toy Story convinced me to give Kingdom Hearts III a try — I had a blast

Valkyria Chronicles 4 does the impossible and makes war beautiful

It might sound ridiculous to you, but it was only until this fourth entry in Valkyria Chronicles that the very first one finally got a true sequel. Up until now, ever since 2008’s Valkyria Chronicles for the PlayStation 3, the series has seemingly done its best to distance itself from what made that game so… Continue reading Valkyria Chronicles 4 does the impossible and makes war beautiful

Mega Man 11’s a tough nut to crack, and I wouldn’t want it any other way

After nearly a decade without any actual new titles to call his own, and having to rely of appearances on two Marvel vs. Capcom fighters, the Blue Bomber is finally back in a game to call his own. The demand has been high for a new entry in the franchise ever since the latest release,… Continue reading Mega Man 11’s a tough nut to crack, and I wouldn’t want it any other way

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a bittersweet piece of dumb fun

After decades riding on the absurdity train, ranging from fighting dinosaurs inside pyramids to being portrayed by Brad Pitt's ex in two so-bad-they're-good films, Eidos and Crystal Dynamics' brand new take on the Tomb Raider franchise brought Ms. Lara Croft to the pantheon of serious and down-to-earth videogame characters of the decade, thanks to two… Continue reading Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a bittersweet piece of dumb fun

Episode One is a tense start to the long road that’s ahead for Life is Strange 2

If there’s one thing to be said about the original Life is Strange is that it slowly built up the stakes as the season developed. You didn’t know just how bad things would get, and outside of quick flashes in early episodes to what potently would happen later on, the twists and turns were surprisingly… Continue reading Episode One is a tense start to the long road that’s ahead for Life is Strange 2

Bringing Up the Bodies with Graveyard Keeper

There’s an old Monty Python sketch I’ve always enjoyed, that I thought of while playing Graveyard Keeper. Four pallbearers in traditional attire are carrying a coffin on their shoulders up a steep hill. It is hard work. Suddenly, one of the pallbearers staggers and passes out. The other three slowly set the coffin down, open… Continue reading Bringing Up the Bodies with Graveyard Keeper
