Tix @ EGX 2017 – Day 1 review

Thursday 21st September saw EGX open it’s doors to the masses, and with Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo all coming to the party with the biggest stands I have seen in my 5 years attending, it looks like being a great show. I was lucky enough to be able to let my teenage son come with me, but this year saw a strict focus on age related restrictions, so he was unable to play the majority of the AAA games on show that were rated 16. I suppose it was understandable as the VSC Rating Board and games trade body Ukie have today announced a renewed partnership in the form of their newly refreshed AskAboutGames site, which launched at EGX. Having this kicked off whilst allowing children to play (potentially) inappropriate games at the show was probably not the best policy!

So, my day one at EGX was not spent playing the newest AAA games, but I did unearth some gems within the Rezzed section.

We started off on the Xbox stand as the Xbox One X was powering most of their games. Both Forza Motorsport 7 and Super Lucky’s Tale looked amazing, and the latter really impressed me with its fun gameplay, and reminded me a lot of Banjo Kazooie. Cuphead also impressed but this is definitely looking like a controller throwing beast of a platform/shooter! The staff on the Xbox stand are also giving away 1 month Game Pass codes, so that’s well worth a look!

We then took a good look around the rest of the show floor, taking in the most wonderful merchandise available, mainly on the official Destiny 2 merchandise stand, which had the LOUDEST music playing EVER.! Thanks also to the chaps manning the Destiny 2/Virgin Fibre stand for letting my boy go home with posters, T-shirt and an inflatable Titan shield. That went a long way to improving his day!

Next was the Rezzed area, and the highlights of that section from day one is as follows.

Huntdown from Easy Trigger games is a very retro inspired, co-op 2D shooter where you play as bounty hunters tasked with taking down the gangs who control the streets. We played a demo on the Nintendo Switch but this is also coming out on Xbox and PS4 later in 2017. The Official Huntdown Website is here!

Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 continues with the story of Vinnie the gangster from the original game. Its a hand drawn side scrolling shooter, which played extremely smoothly. I had never played the first one, but will definitely be checking this out! Check out the official website here.

Shift Quantum was a really fun puzzle game, where you switch the background from light to dark in order to escape a maze. My son is not a huge puzzle game fan but this was one he raved about afterwards! Developed by Fishing Cactus, Shift Quantum is currently only available on Steam, so check out the website here!

Dead Cells was one of my favorites from the Rezzed section. It is an upcoming roguelike-Metroidvania hybrid video game being developed by Motion Twin. Again, currently only on Steam but is being brought to consoles at a later date. Check out their website here! 

Check out the site for an update on Day 2, same time tomorrow!

 

Forza Motorsport 7 Demo screeching in on September 19th

The demo for Forza Motorsport 7 is coming for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC and will feature three different racing experiences. You can drive the Forza Motorsport 7 cover car – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS – to the brand-new Dubai circuit and experience the thrill of navigating the Jebel Hafeet Pass, one of the most famous driving roads in the world. Or, pilot the massive Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck to victory at the high-speed Mugello circuit in Italy.

For drivers who want the ultimate test, the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM is available for a race at the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Here, fans will be challenged to handle the ‘Ring’s complex corners and elevation changes, while also tackling the dynamic track conditions that will make racing in Forza Motorsport 7 so breathtaking. Racing through rainstorms laced with thunder and lightning make for a visual showcase and for a challenge like no other – where dynamic puddles grow and shrink with the intensity of the rain.

A new trailer has also been released featuring a game of musical chairs with some of the cars featured in the game.

Xbox One X to be playable at EGX 2017

Sometimes a piece of news comes along that makes you smile, sing and dance for joy. This piece was one of those. Each year I go to EGX, whether at Earls Court in London, or more recently at the NEC in Birmingham. Last year, Xbox was largely absent from the conference, choosing only to concentrate on showing off Gears of War 4. However, this year, they are back with a bang!

Gamer Network is thrilled to announce that Xbox One X, the world’s most powerful console, will make its full UK playable public debut exclusively at EGX 2017! BOOOOOM!

Set for release on the 7th November, the Xbox One X boasts 40% more power than any other console to offer an immersive 4K gaming experience.

Visitors to EGX will be able to get hands-on with a wide selection of games on the Xbox One family of devices including first party titles Forza Motorsport 7, Sea of Thieves and Super Lucky’s Tale as well as the eagerly anticipated Middle-earth: Shadow of War from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

“Xbox One was available to play first in the UK at EGX 2013 and we’re delighted that Microsoft has again chosen EGX to demonstrate its cutting-edge hardware first. It’s a further demonstration that EGX is the number one UK event for launching new product,” said David Lilley, MD of Gamer Events.

EGX 2017, powered by Virgin Media, takes place on the 21st-24th September at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event which will feature all aspects of gaming culture including big budget blockbuster games available to play before release, innovative titles from the thriving indie scene, thrilling esports action and much more.

Forza Motorsport 7 confirmed

Forza Motorsport 7 has been confined during  the Xbox show at E3. We all knew it was coming, as it was being shown during developer sessions for the Xbox One X, but it’s exciting all the same.

Dan Greenwall started off by showing us the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and how good its going to look. He also confirmed the game will run in 4K Ultra HD and HDR at 60 FPS.

The game will be a Play Anywhere title also and will be available on October 3.
