Title / RATTINGPlatformNotes
Elden Ring

Xbox OneIt has the attributes to be one of my favorite games but so far it is not.
I like that it remembers me to Seikiro Shadows Die Twice.
The font used for the tips is too small for watching in a 4K with some tired sight and after playing for 20 minutes I feel dizzy by the 3D moving.
Using the right distance and glasses and not moving that much the camera I need 2 hours in order to feel dizzy.
I would say it is a very funny game. A nonsense world TBH, but with many funny things.
I wrote some tips for the very beginners.
After 103 hours playing I’m level 75 and I’ve covered around 20% of the game. It’s a huge game.
I finished the game after 222 hours playing, being level 188.
Dying Light 2Xbox OneI’ve not started it yet.
TitleScore (0 to 5)PlatformNotesStarted playing
Metroid Dread4Nintendo SwitchIt is a game that has nice and immersive graphics but I find the controls very difficult to use.
Also some enemies are indestructible and you may lose some lives until you realize that and try escaping through a door.
You may also watch so many times the same video animation until you discover that you can skip with + and then – keys from the gamepad.
There are only 3 slots for saving and you can only save in certain places. Saving was telling me items 1% while I reloaded and I had 6%. It guess 1% is global and 6% is for that map.
I’ve only player 30 minutes but first impression is not good enough, especially for the €60 that I paid.
Nintendo Boxing 25Nintendo SwitchFocused in the aerobic, in burning Kcal and being healthy, this version is better than the first one (which was great) and allows two players to do the workout at the same time.
It also imported my data from the previous version game.
It has some bugs, for example it doesn’t detect the movement sometimes and marks it as Missed, and when I put the console to sleep mode, it doesn’t realize that it is another day and I’ve to go to any submenu and back for it to get it, and even doing that sometimes it sums the time of the two days (today’s exercise and yesterday’s) and suggest to stop practicing that much. Even with these bugs it is a nice and fun game.
Halo Infinite5Xbox One XAmazing. Very cool to play. the integration between the videos and the real action is super smooth.2021-12-10
I finished it on the 2022-01-28 after not playing during Christmas.
Iron Harvest Complete Edition5Xbox One XWork and the university does not allow me to play many time but I started to play and could not stop for 3 hours. It’s a pretty original history. The videos are decent. And all the ambiance and the gameplay are very cool.2021-12-05
Guardians of the Galaxy5Xbox One XIs a funny game. The characters are always fighting like in the movies.2021-11-20
Diablo II Resurrected4
PCIt is cool but the movement and something dynamic feels old.
I cannot help as I’ve played Diablo IV (workd in progress) and is amazing.
I must add that I have played in single player mode only.
For a remaster it is truly remarkable.

I created a page sharing my tips.

Update 2021-10-19: After being playing for some days I got to love it. Also I saw a colleague playing in Network with friends, and it’s plenty of fun. So I updated from 4 to 5.

And I finished the game on 2021-10-25 with a Sorceress level 35
Alien Fireteam Elite5Xbox One XThe dynamic is simple, the game remembers me World War Z but with less mobility.
You play with two buddies or matched players, or with two AI controlled synthetics.
The dialogs and the videos of the characters are not cutting edge, they don’t even move the lips. But the game is fun to play and I love Aliens. The ambiance is good.
There are few missions and you’ll finish the game quickly, but the maps are gorgeous and there are many weapons. This game complements well the movies.
I paid €39.90 and for this price or less is a 5 stars.
and finished the 2021-09-13
Super Mario U Deluxe4Nintendo SwitchIt allows up to 4 players on the same screen. I’ve played only single mode.
It annoys me the slow speed at which the character starts walking and later speeds up a bit and a bit progressively.
My first time I only played a map, second time another map on the 2021-09-04
Shadow of War4Xbox One XPretty nice.
Having to run pressing A button is annoying and some combos are annoying too. Specially the dynamics in combat. Also found few bugs.
Is pretty nice, but repetitive, and the fact that you can’t skip the animations is pretty annoying.
Still a nice videogame, at least for the first 20 hours of game play.
Actually after around 12 hours the game becomes more interesting. Since you can recruit captains to your armies and raid other orcs’ basements.
Destiny 25Xbox One XI was surprised by the solo game and the multi-player on different campaigns approach.2021-04-03
Crash Bandicoot 4
It’s about time
5Windows 10The kind of platform games I liked yo play years ago. Very nice and sweet. The most I play, the most cool I find it.2021-03-28
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War5Windows 10So I watched the video about the gameplay with zombies and I decided to give it a try. I played some maps of the zombies. It remembers me World War Z.2021-03-28
Doom Eternal4Xbox One XMmmm… I’m a big fan of Doom series, but it disappointed me.
Again I tried it as it is available in Game Pass, and graphics deceit me a bit.
Dishonored2Xbox One XWell, it’s a game from 2015 that I tried cause it’s free on Game Pass. Feels old and graphics are ugly. Probably was decent at the time, but I could not play more than 5 minutes and it felt like a waste of time.2021-03-25
Super Mario Odissey5Nintendo SwicthReally nice.
The ability to do actions moving the joyCon is super fun.
Extra kudo for the possibility to play 2 people at the same time.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps
5Xbox One X2021-03-13
StarCraft 25PC, WindowsMy favorite oneLooooong time ago.
Assassin’s Creed Valhala5Xbox One X SeriesTotally amazing. It has many, and that means many more than 100 hours, of playable hours of game.2020-12-15.
I finished it on 2021-03-05 after playing almost this in Xbox.
155 hours played, and I think I could play around 50 more if I wanted to finish all the quests, treasures, new river raids.
Cyberpunk 20775Xbox One X SeriesI’ve been waiting until some more patches are delivered in order to enjoy it as it was intended to be.
11 days after I started playing it, I have to say that is one of the best games I ever played. And one of my favorites.
I finished using less than 50 hours, I completed all the gigs and finished using 90.
I finished it in 4 different finales.
I finalized playing it the 2021-08-09
Terminator Resistance3Xbox One XIf feels old. Like a previous generation console. It says Xbox One X Enhanced but I don’t see the 4K anywhere.2020-12-06

The Surge5Xbox OneWas hard. I was unable to pass the first boss
The Surge 25Xbox OneOne of my favorites ever.
I’ll share a trick: there are green card doors, and red card door, and the red card is nearly impossible to find… even in Google… so I explain it here: there is no red card, the doors that have red panel is just indicating that you don’t have the proper card. There are several cards but they are not organized by color.
Finished it on August 2020.
Hearthstone (Blizzard)5Pc, WindowsI discovered this game when I joined Blizzard and I really liked it.
It is super addictive.
That’s why I stopped playing for a while.
After some time, we had an incident and I wanted to verify if it was working properly, so I tried it, and discovered the new gameplays and I started playing again.
The Battlegrounds, playing in network against other players, is amazing.
Command and Conquer (all)5Pc, WindowsI recently bought a pack with all of them, again.
