This Is Not A Review: Nemezis: Mysterious Journey III

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Nemezis: Mysterious Journey III, developed by Detalion Games S.A. and published by Playway S.A. and Detalion Games S.A.


Ghostwire: Tokyo Hands-On Preview

As the release date of Ghostwire: Tokyo approaches, we’ve now been able to get hands-on time with the final version. While we’re only allowed to talk about the first two chapters (which cover much the same ground as our hands-off preview from last month) being able to play for ourselves has allowed for us to take a different approach in the same general area. And honestly, it’s looking quite promising at this point.
