Last week was a quite interesting for the videogame industry. Four diverse releases arrived at the market, but they are Far Cry 6 and Metroid Dread the ones who most caught the attention of the public.

Editor s note:
Metroid Dread is my game of the year. Although I have not finished it yet, since I want to have all the items before reaching the end, I have not heavy a single second without having fun. This is a great title that deserves the attention of all the fans of the series and the Metroidvanias.
