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 […]

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 […]

EGX 2015: Mirrors Edge Catalyst impressions

With massive queue’s lasting upwards of 3 hours, the 8 berth showing of Mirror’s edge was a thing of beauty. The City of Glass is still the same dystopian society plagued with nondescript white buildings, pastel orange bill boards and red interactable environments, but beneath the rooftops lie the sprawling, dark, myriad of pathways that […]

EGX 2015: The main floor impressions

EGX 2015: Cuphead impressions

What a fantastic title Cuphead is going to be. The stylish 1930s animation inspired platformer is hard as nails, but it’s cutesy animation and humor is irresistible. It’s Itchy and Scratchy meets the original Popeye cartoons. Funny and very heart warming, but don’t let this trick you or take away your attention, because the action […]

EGX 2015: The Division impressions

The Division plays super smoothly, combining third person combat, technology, cooperative gameplay and competitive multiplayer – that’s a lot for Ubisoft to handle and they’ve pooled all their knowledge and skills from their other titles to realise The Division. Working with two other teammates, you must secure some loot from an NPC faction, with many other […]

EGX 2015: Star Wars Battlefront impressions

With limited time at EGX, first on my hit list was Star Wars Battlefront. Sure, there were other games on my list that I was more excited for, but the Star Wars fan in me was screaming to make this my first hit to see if the game could deliver on the Star Wars and […]
