CASTLE OF ILLUSION (PC)
Out of nostalgia - and a bit because it was on sale - I
got Castle of Illusion on Steam. Back in the days I played it on my Megadrive and
have some good memories of it, so why not? For context, we´re talking of a 3D reboot
of a 2D platform game. While most ...

LIFE IS STRANGE (PS4)
I´ve been interested on interactive
storytelling games since like forever. That was one of the reasons why I took that job
at Quantic Dream. Some ex-employees of that company founded Dontnod some years
ago, and created Life is strange. And thanks to a PS4
s...

SOUTH PARK THE STICK OF TRUTH (PC)
The South Park game sequel is on its way in
some months and since it´s developed by Ubisoft I got a nice discount. I´ve had
the first game waiting on Steam for years and thought it´d be a good idea to

MONUMENT VALLEY 2 (iOS)
I consider Monument Valley the best game of 2014, so

desktop for a year until I ...

to finish it. Well, finish one branch that is. It's one o...

MURDERED SOUL SUSPECT (PC)
Years ago I had this idea for a game: You start as a ghost. Your body is on the ground, you were assassinated minutes ago. A number of friends/relatives surround the corpse. You don´t know which, but one of them killed you. They all leave the scene and from...

RAGE (PS3)
Knowing that PS3/Xbox 360 will be discontinued (as well as its online services) some day, I´m still trying to finish some old games before that happens. In the last months I´ve been playing Rage, and honestly it´s been a bit of a testing one... Fairly hyped...

HIDDEN FOLKS (iOS)
Looks like I can find time more easily for mobile games than console/PC. Particularly during flights, where you don´t have many leisure options. That´s the case of Hidden Folks It´s a hidden object game, much like the old "Where is Waldo" books: You´re pres...

SUPERMAN RETURNS - A POSTMORTEM
Very interesting article about what went right / wrong during the development of Superman Returns: Click here My favorite part: "In retrospect, we had the tough combination of new game/new engine/new team. Generally you want a maximum of one of these things...
