BGS 2018: A chat with Traveller’s Tales’ Super-Villain, er… Senior Producer Matthew Ellison

To Traveller’s Tales’ senior producer Matthew Ellison, the most important aspect to the LEGO games is their accessibility and how creatively they make use of their licenses. I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with him for a few minutes at Brazil Game Show last week, where Warner Bros was showing off the… Continue reading BGS 2018: A chat with Traveller’s Tales’ Super-Villain, er… Senior Producer Matthew Ellison

BGS 2018: If you loved these games in the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will burn bright with nostalgia

When the original PlayStation hit, I was all about the Nintendo 64, so unlike a lot of folks who grew up in the 1990s, my fondest platforming memories lie with the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64, namely the Super Mario games. Still, I would be lying if I told you I never dabbled with those… Continue reading BGS 2018: If you loved these games in the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will burn bright with nostalgia

BGS 2018: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice snuck its way into and stabbed my heart

If you thought From Software was done with the Dark Souls formula, think again. Now under the Activision banner, director Hidetaka Miyazaki is at it again, this time taking us for a ride in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. And from the 40 minutes or so I spent playing the game at Brazil Game Show, all… Continue reading BGS 2018: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice snuck its way into and stabbed my heart

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

BGS 2018: Claire meets William Birkin eye to arm-eye in the newest Resident Evil 2 demo

Resident Evil’s lore has gotten to the point of sheer absurdity after so many years and even more in games, so it feels good to think back when things were simpler and still not completely convoluted. Days when we only knew that Wesker has a normal dude who happened to be a bad guy, and… Continue reading BGS 2018: Claire meets William Birkin eye to arm-eye in the newest Resident Evil 2 demo

BGS 2018: Devil May Cry V’s Nero rocket punches some serious ass

Capcom in conjunction with Warner Bros, the distributor of their games in Brazil, brought Devil May Cry V over to Brazil Game Show, which started yesterday in São Paulo. I was able to play the game for about 20 minutes, and after not caring much about it at all since its announcement at this year’s… Continue reading BGS 2018: Devil May Cry V’s Nero rocket punches some serious ass

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
