EGX Hands On – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

EGX Hands On – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

When I was at EGX, I mentioned on Twitter that I hadn’t played anything from the Assassin’s Creed series since the high-seas action of Black Sails, but that was about to change as I was in the queue for Syndicate, the latest game in the series that will be taking us to Victorian London. I also took some fairly ropey photos of Ubisoft’s booth for the game, but that’s by-the-by. I played Syndicate at the show, not once, but twice….

EGX Hands On – Giant Cop

EGX Hands On – Giant Cop

There was one game in the Rezzed indie game section at EGX that repeatedly caught my eye. I walked past the booth several times became ever more interested each time I saw it being played. Unfortunately, for a long while, the game was really busy with people spending a considerable amount of time playing it. I finally got a chance to play it, and from the moment the introductory video played, I knew I was playing a potential Game of…

EGX Hands On With The Escapists: The Walking Dead

EGX Hands On With The Escapists: The Walking Dead

I was walking around the Rezzed section at EGX today, checking out all of the latest hip, cool and new indie games, when amongst the hordes of humanity, one little game stood out. Loud and proud, it proclaimed itself to be The Escapists: The Walking Dead. What was this I wondered? Could it possibly be some tie-in between The Escapists, a 8-bit pixel-art game about escaping from prisons (that I have woefully failed to write about) and The Walking Dead…

Black Ops 3 – Beta Impressions

Black Ops 3 – Beta Impressions

I spent much of the past weekend playing the Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer Beta on the PlayStation 4. While the Beta is launching on the Xbox One and PC at the moment, I just want to share some of my early thoughts of the game. Hit the break, and let’s begin.

Don’t Give Up On Project CARS

Don’t Give Up On Project CARS

Have you picked up Project CARS this past week, looking forward to a racer which can challenge the hegemony of Gran Turismo and Forza? Have you started to play with a gamepad and found everything extremely frustrating to drive? Have no fear and don’t give up on it just yet. This is my tale.

DiRT Rally – Early Access Hands On

DiRT Rally – Early Access Hands On

Codemasters sneakily released a new game onto Steam Early Access the other week when they went public with DiRT Rally, the latest game in the DiRT series, but one that takes an approach more in keeping with the older Colin McRae Rally games. Codemasters talk boldly about realism with Rally, and I’ve been checking it out over the past few days to see how it fares, and how it stands compared to other rallying titles.

Thoughts From Someone Who Didn’t Go To Rezzed

Thoughts From Someone Who Didn’t Go To Rezzed

I didn’t make it to Rezzed this year, there are only so many game shows any one man can make in the year, and only so many trips to London any one man can afford to make in a year. However, I was keeping a close eye on the event via Twitter, and these are some thoughts on three indie games that featured strongly…

Correcting my Game of the Year

Correcting my Game of the Year

When we wrote our Games of the Year pieces back last year, I wrote openly and honestly about the games that I had loved from last year. However, as is to be expected, I didn’t play every game, or even every AAA title, that was released last year. Since then though, I’ve had the chance to revisit a title which would have appeared at the top of my list – Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Evolve: Alpha impressions

Evolve: Alpha impressions

Imagine my surprise when I logged into Steam, only to find that my brother had been playing Evolve. This surprise was further compounded when I saw it was in my library. The penny then dropped; I wasn’t special, or chosen….it was simply an open Alpha. Jump to the cut to find my thoughts on the game as it is.

EGX 2014 Game of the Show

EGX 2014 Game of the Show

I had a splendid time at EGX this year at Earl’s Court, and despite referring to it as the Eurogamer Expo all week, I was happy to be there and impressed with what I saw. There were a few games which might have made it as my Game of the Show, but for one reason or another, they just didn’t quite do enough to convince me. My Game of the Show surprised even myself, but it was the one which…

Destiny – Our Thoughts

Destiny – Our Thoughts

There is a game known as Destiny which launched recently on the consoles, but unfortunately not on the PC. It is an MMO-FPS-RPG and also a single-player FPS-RPG. There are competitive multiplayer FPS elements thrown in for good measure. Destiny then, what are our thoughts?

Sunless Sea – Early Access Impressions

Sunless Sea – Early Access Impressions

The zee, the dark inky zee, have you explored the zee yet? You might be confused, but you see, the zee is the sea in Sunless Sea. Still with me I hope as Sunless Sea is a gorgeous 2D exploration, survival and adventure game that is currently available on Steam Early Access. I’ve been playing and thoroughly enjoying this wonderful little game.
