ClassicInfantaria | April 19, 2014 | Review of FINAL FANTASY VIII
I was just a teen at the time and had never played an JRPG or any kind of RPG for that matter.
I borrowed this game from a girl I liked (yes a girl that played FF back in the day), and instantly I was hooked.
From the characters to the story, this is one of the best RPGs ever.
Final Fantasy VI, VII, and IX really make you love and feel for the characters, and VIII is no exception. First time I played it took me 80 hours to complete, as I was searching for every GF and every secret in the game.
All in all, a game that is no shame to still play at this day and age, since the combination of graphics, the wonderful songs by Nobuo Uematsu, the story, the characters still remain one of the best today.
The game that changed a genreInfantaria | Aug. 6, 2013 | Review of FINAL FANTASY VII
First of all, this was the second Final Fantasy I played, the first being VIII, and I never had heard about this game before. One day, I found it in a store and thought "I loved VIII, VII should be good too".
I was almost right. VII is perfect.
The story is top notch, the characters are memorable. Sephiroth, Cloud, Tifa, Vincent, etc, are still talked about today.
I was a teenager then, and I still remember spending many nights just loading my savegame, selling all my stuff and just spend hours having fun on the in-game amusement park, just playing the crap out of those minigames. To this day, I haven't seen nothing like it.
All in all, a must have, must play, must experience RPG, for any RPG fan or gamer in general.
ClassicInfantaria | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Still Life
I have played a lot, and I mean A LOT, of point n' click / adventure games. From the classics of LucasArts to the indie ones being released today. I always loved "Jack the ripper" kind of games, but never encountered one where you could feel that kind of atmosphere.
That is, until Still Life.
The ambient is absolutely terrific, from the intro movie to the end game. This is one of those games that truly tell a tale. The puzzles are hard (one is absurdly hard), but rewarding.
To this day, whenever I feel like playing a "whodunnit" murder game, still life springs instantly to my mind.
WildInfantaria | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Borderlands
(review copied from my own review on steamcritic.com)
If you spend some time on the forums, you can see many people bashing this game. Pay no mind to them. From the start of the game (and the excellent song - Cage The Elephant - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked), you feel in your bones that you are in for a ride. Being the sneaky guy I am, I play Mordecai.
To this day, I am still to find a game that gave me as much fun to play as a sniper, than Borderlands. The story isn't nothing to brag home about, but it is entertaining enough to be interesting. The core of the game, of course, is to always get better loot, and let me tell you, there is nothing more rewarding than receiving an upgrade for that special weapon.
From Headshotting skags a mile away, to snipe "Trash Feeder" in mid flight, Borderlands is just an absolute blast.
Simply perfectInfantaria | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Blood Money
(Review copied from my own review on Steamcritic.com)
Agent 47 is in his best shape in this game. Without a doubt the best in the series. The missions are a blast to complete, and being an assassin a la thief ( or in this case, a la Hitman) has never been more fun. After I finished my first playthrough, I played this game for 2 more times, just experimenting with different ways of completing the missions, and the diversity of approaches is just a joy to watch ( and play)
All in all, a game I genuinely recommend to any fan of stealth\Assassination\Fun Games.
