There is a full list available over with the folks at Ultra-Combo and also there’s a video on Maximilian Dood’s Youtube channel, featuring all of the Season One characters. Here are some of the reasons as to why the game is under...

They are looking to hire a sniper to be concealed along the sniper portion of the course with a state of the art paintball gun, military grade night vision goggles and shoot glow in the dark paintballs at the running tar...

2016 Eurogamer Expo announced

EGX will return to Birmingham’s NEC in 2016. The Expo will run from September 22-25 for its ninth year. This year saw EGX move from its London home at Earls Court to Birmingham’s NEC. I attended the show on Saturday and while queues were rather long, I found it be a great venue that was easy to access with a really pleasant and vibrant atmosphere. In 2015 we established key new feature...

EGX 2015: Just Cause 3 Impressions

Just Cause 3 had a much larger showing with row upon row of machines playing the latest incarnation of Avalanche’s unique open world action adventure. You reprise the role of Rico Rodriguez as he leaves the Agency and returns to his homeland only to be embroiled in the efforts to overthrow local dictator, General Di Ravello. Those who listen to the podcast will know that while Greg and Neale have ...

EGX 2015 : Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Impressions

The Assassins creed franchise has had its fair shares of up’s and downs. AC3, to many, was a lifeless, soulless husk that failed to capture the essence of the Ezio saga, while the technical issues of Unity left many feeling that the yearly iterations being pumped out by Ubisoft was a mistake. I freely admit, that I “was” one of the latter. Rather than the cold hard ground that fo...

EGX 2015: Rise of the Tomb Raider impressions

Microsoft had a decent showing in their booth, with Rise of the Tomb Raider the standout game for me. Lara’s latest adventures have been expanded somewhat from the trailer of a cold and unforgiving climb in her latest escapade and I can thankfully announce that along with a definite refinement of the control systems used on the reboot, we have actual Tomb’s to explore this time. Rather than the sm...

EGX 2015: Star Wars Battlefront second impressions

With a huge booth featuring a massive Tie Fighter, the queues to participate in the massive 20 vs 20 battles were ranging anything from 90 minutes to three hours in length. An introductory video gave some oversight of the collectibles on the battlefield and the controls for vehicles available and after a short wait, we were fired into our first massive, pitched battle. As the Imperial forces on Ho...

EGX 2015: Need for Speed impressions

High on my EGX list was the Need For Speed reboot. After 22 varied iterations, I was unconvinced that a reboot could do anything for the series, and at this point I am still slightly unconvinced. Graphically the game looked stunning, but I did not find anything truly new or revolutionary to the gameplay. At the start of the demo we were allowed a few minutes to pick a car and tweak its settings to...
