The Best Games Of 2018 You Probably Didn't Play

Does this even need an introduction? It’s a blog about good games from the previous year that nobody played. Not a Top X, because I have a hard time putting ordering things, and all the games here deserve love in equal amount....

 
 
 
 

Soul Reaver turns 20 today. I feel like such an old man right now.



 
 
 

I always love when I accidentally find some great music out there and this OST for a JRPG that doesn't actually exist is pretty good stuff. I can totally hear the inspirations behind the music (ACE, Shimomura, Revo, Nobuo, etc). Give the album a go!



 
 
 

New Under Night is absolutely real and I couldn't be more excited! 4th Clause here we fucking go!



 
 
 

New blog is up! In celebration of 30 years of the Genesis let me tell you all how it shaped the Brazilian game industry, and why it is still relevant in 2019!

 
 
 

Thank You, Space Cowboy

In all my years as a not-even-amateur writer, I have never once considered writing about anime. Not because I dislike the medium, quite the contrary I simply don’t know how to do it. I can name you a few studios, I’ve watc...

 
 
 
 
 

I think I rewrote this like ten times, and you gotta know when to stop. So please, enjoy my blog on Brazil's favorite game:Top Gear

 
 
 
 
 

Kinda of late to this party, but my copy of Sekiro arrived, and I really like it, even when it's handling me my ass. Executions are DOPE as shiet too! But I'd like to ask you all: why do you play difficult games? Pride? Bragging rights? Tell me.

 
 
 

I know Sonic and good music go together like peanut butter and jelly (or me and yur mom ayy o) but this song in particular really rocks me.



 
 
 

Hyakutaro Tsukumo is a damn good composer.



 
 
 

Heads up: Horizon Chase Turbo is celebrating 1 year. This 40% off deal ends tomorrow (29th). If you love arcade racers from the 90s do yourself and favor and go for it.



 
 
 

A friendly reminder that this is a dope Shmup. LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN!



 
 
 

I'm not gonna lie, I listened to this remix so much that I legit can't remember Kill La Kill's original OP.



 
 
 

I'm not dead!!! So go read my new blog about how it was to be Brazilian gamer in the 90s! Since I don't know how to make things clickable here's a raw link :P https://www.destructoid.com/--554619.phtml#post

About Niorone of us since 5:29 PM on 12.15.2014

Writer for fun, professional amateur and 16-bit dreamer.

Brazilian man born and raised, under the hot sun where I spend most of my days. Currently working on a series dedicated to the documentation of the local gaming culture and landscape, that I call Brazil Of Games. I took the name from an old TV series that aired a long time ago here but no trace of it exists on the Internet.

The Brazil Of Games:


[*] The original blog about Nintendo's departure from my country that planted the seed for everything that's to come, all the way back in 2017.

[*] The first real installment, where I explore the origins of the world's first digital-only console, the Zeebo. And why it failed.

[*] Meet the Locadora, the parlors where we got our first contact with gaming!

[*] A follow up of sorts to the previous blog, where I explore Brazil's most revered game: Top Gear!

[*] The SEGA Genesis might have been born in Japan, but it was Brazil that made it its home! Here's how it happened.
