    Hohokum can be considered as a video game or interactive art, depending on the way we see the experience of playing. But developing such an experimental approach surely requires genuine creativity, that is expressed with an elegant and misleading simplicity through this singular journey.

    There's a lot of revelations in this episode of Cognition. I've been caught off guard and enticed right up until the end of it. It's enough to overlook the still weak production values, and the easy gameplay. Can't wait for the conclusion of this story!

    Ace Combat changes its course slightly in order to deliver a more visceral, thrilling and cinematic experience, and it's for the better. One gets the new systems quickly, but it doesn't mean there aren't subtleties in it. In terms of visual, it's superb, and online play provides great fun in various ways.

    Recent remastered games seemed a bit lazy. 4A Games doesn't mess around with this excellent compilation of their two FPS that keep their own identity and look - especially Metro 2033 - quite great visually. Even with a few flaws that were already known, they are definitely worth playing.

    Tales Of Graces F is like previous Tales of Games, it has a theme. This time it's "to seek the strength required to protect", with the story of a kid who will try to do everything he can to absolve his past mistakes, and become strong enough to protect those he loves. It's super classic and simple, and that's why it works, especially for all those who like the way JRPG were done ten years ago.

    Great atmosphere and presentation, beautiful visuals, well rebuilt interface, lots of game modes: FIFA 15 only changes a little from FIFA 14, but it's still a sharp football experience on consoles. The lack of really new ideas may possibly be well-accepted this year, but it probably won't be the same next year.

    Despite the introduction of amiibo, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash has little new content. Camelot powered up the gameplay instead, an over-the-top approach embodied by the Mega Mushroom, although the Jumpshot stands as the biggest addition. And the series' legendary accessibility, depth and balance also improved through this great touch of design, which elevates "Jumpman Tennis" among the most convivial games.

    Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX is an excellent HD remake. If you want to discover or rediscover this universe this is undoubtedly the best opportunity to jump in.

    Squids combines tactics and RPG in a game that has clearly been thought, and crafted with the touch platforms in mind. As a results, it works really well, and the overall quality of the production, visuals, sounds, and gameplay for such a little price make it a real teat for iOS gamers (and later Android ones).

    Shadows of the Damned is a Road Movie made game. You watch and play it, enjoying the fun an politically incorrect humor, over-the-top atmosphere and appealing characters. Too bad some shortcomings like camera issues, a rather short campaign and some lack of exploration undermine its otherwise enjoyable formula.

    It's hard to criticize this SoulCalibur V. It's pretty, it's playable, accessible yet deep, will undoubtedly prove to be fun among friends both at home, or online. Too bad though, that the solo modes are so poor, and the roster of characters so far from being renewed as advertised. A good sequel, which could have been an unforgettable one with a better roster.

    Teslagrad is all about electricity, magnetism, and mind bending puzzles. The hand-drawn graphics and atmospheric music will take you to the top of the Tesla tower with a broad grin on your face.

    If you find yourself sometimes wondering if videogames are art, you should try Kentucky Route Zero. This adventure game gives you the reigns of the storytelling of an intriguing fantastical story.

    Despite some online issues (mainly a lack of matchmaking's optimization and long waits between fights) and a too user-friendly X-Ray, this Mortal Kombat managed to deliver deep and rich gameplay. The whole experience is really worth a try. Especially the online features.

    Football manager needs some real competition. Their developers make only small changes every year when we expect they focus, for instance, on the graphics engine. However, the game is still very powerful an very enjoyable.

    One could have feared it would be a dull copy of Layton, but fear not: Rythm Thief is a nice, fresh, rythm game mixed with puzzle elements. The atmosphere of the japanese-dreamt Paris works well, and even though it's a little short, the adventure is indeed very nice.

    Dance Central is everything one could expect from a good sequel. As precise in it movement recognition, it now boasts a two player offer, an enhanced solo mode, and a very decent learning curve. It may be this last point that drives a choice between DC2 and Just Dance 3: the first is more demanding and deep, the second more aimed at immediate fun.

    Even though Mists of Pandaria may be easing things up a little too much leveling-up wise, it's full of delicious content. But World of Warcraft's age is starting to show, both in terms of quest structure and storytelling. The humor is still a nice touch.

    Ratloop Asia offers us a nice conversion of their web title. The differences aren't legion, but anyway, the game was good. The blend of puzzle, action, dark humor and good music is spot on. A very nice little game to boost up your mood.

    Gone home is a beautiful story told with talent. The total immersion and storytelling brings a sense of renewal in the world of video games. Unfortunately, lifespan is too short: 2 hours are enough to see the end.

    DC Universe Online sales were good and well deserved. The work on the PvP side of the game is interesting, and gives it a hardcore flavor that is both nice and unexpected for a first PS3 MMO. More comfortable on the PC, DCUO has the content it needs for the casual gamer, the group of friends, or the large guild with the PGM attitude. Now, SOE only has to correct some shortcomings and give us more clues about future content! Sure it's only just come out, but, go go, back to work!

    It's always touchy when a license changes hands, but Warner Bros Montreal succeeds with Batman: Arkham Origins, the third and penultimate episode of the Batman: Arkham series started by Rocksteady. The risks were minimal, given how the Quebecois studio perfectly replicates Batman: Arkham City, one of the best games of this generation. But if reproducing perfection requires skills to propose a story, sense of rhythm and narration on the par with Arkham City was a challenge, they overcame it. Furthermore, with a nice multi-player mode and a gigantic length there's no doubt this Batman is a winner. A must have for fans and non-fans alike.

    By offering a gigantic and gorgeous map full of life and secrets, the second installment of this new Hitman gives players exactly what they need: a great setting to experiment with a large amount of possibilities given to fulfill 47's contracts.

    No, MGS5 Ground Zeroes is not 2 hours long. And yes, that would be a shame to just talk about the length of its main mission. Technically and artistically stunning, it offers an excellent stealth game experience and a story that all the fans will love... We can't wait for Phantom Pain now.

    For its small price and despite a weak roster (even though it's quite varied), Skullgirls offers quite a rich meal to versus fighting lovers. Innovative in its form, artistic direction and even its gameplay, it's an excellent combat game for this price range.

    The benchmark of boxing games on consoles is setting the bar once more thanks to EA Canada's talent. They didn't transform the franchise completely, proposing instead an even more realistic rendering and a very alluring accessibility. Maybe some hardcore simulation-craving gamers would find some things to argue about (like some shortcomings in terms of gameplay precision, a lack of realism on some specific moves) but it would be a shame not to play this new reference of virtual boxing.

    Endless Space's gameplay is somewhat close to a board game. Conquest must be achieved with but one goal in mind, but you will not be able to excel if you have more than one strategy. Economy, diplomacy, military, scientific, whatever you choose, stick to it. It's only true shortcoming for the time being is a less-than-stellar AI that sometimes acts irrationally, and some mising multiplayer tools to better plan the experience.
