It's hard to believe that Bayonetta 3 released on the Switch only few months ago, and yet...here we are, readying ourselves for another pulsating action adventure with Platinum Games' main witch. Well...in this prequel, Bayonetta is not a witch yet, and this is not a action game per say, but more of a co-op puzzler. Yep...Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Last Demon is a spin-off, far removed from the usual witch time romp we had all come to know and love. But does it do the main series justice? Or is only Bayonetta in name only? Here's the review roundup:
Lights, camera, animation! The Academy Awards have always been a glittering celebration of cinematic excellence, and the winners of the Best Animated Feature Film category are no exception. From talking toys to undersea adventures, these films have captured our hearts and sparked our imaginations. Mix all of that with the genius mind of Guillermo del Toro, few would bet against such a film taking home a golden statue. Netflix's Pinocchio won this year's award, and in the process granting Del Torro the honour of the first person, and Latino, to have won Oscars for Best Picture, Director and Animation.
What you got to love about the mad genius Hidetaka Miyazaki is that not only he and FromSoftware team created an unforgettable experience with Dark Souls, but they also spawned a brand new subgenre to please and infuriate gamers.

One such was Team Ninja with the well-received Nioh series. They are back at it again, this time with a little Chinese influence sprinkled in. Here's the review roundup for Wo Long Fallen Dynasty:

As you step into the shoes of the protagonist in Atomic Heart, you'll be transported to a world where ancient traditions collide with modern technologies and where the lines between good and evil are often blurred. You will also be playing a game that is not only set in a fictional Russia but also sees the protagonist working for the Russian regime. All at a time when real-life Russia isn't exactly the most loved kitten of the litter right now in the eyes of many. Nonetheless, the game looks promising, but did it live up to it? Here's the review roundup:

Hogwarts Legacy Review Roundup
Harry Potter is a series of 7 fantasy novels and 8 movies about a young wizard named Harry Potter who discovers he is famous in the wizarding world. And....confession time...I have never seen or read any of it. Yes, as sacrilegious as it may sound, the mega-billion book/film franchise had somehow eluded me. Maybe a fun and engaging Triple-A game is all I needed to finally step into the world of Hogwarts. Maybe, Hogwarts Legacy is the game to do it. Here's the review roundup:
