After the catastrophe of Colonial Marines a lot of fans of the Alien franchise were left distraught but with Alien Isolation, SEGA have teamed up with The Creative Assembly and changed direction by switching from shooter to survival horror genre which may do it justice. The version played at this years EGX 2014 had incredibly detailed graphics providing a dark and atmospheric feel within the game, there was a slight issue with the Alien when it glitched while attacking the player which prevented the player from being able to move or die, but this issue should be easily be resolved  in the final Read more

Battlefield Hardline

As we near the end of the Battlefield 4 cycle all eyes are turning to next game in the franchise Battlefield Hardline. This takes the Battlefield Franchise in a totally different direction and drops us into the world of Criminals Vs Law Enforcement. At EGX we were given the chance to play 20 minutes of Hotwire on the Gator Hunt Map set in the Florida Everglades, we were told it is similar to Conquest, so everyone thought OK I know what’s happening here. Wrong! Battlefield Hardline has put a massive twist into their Hotwire Game Mode. I spawned and started Read more

Assassins Creed Rogue

Assassins Creed Rogue takes a twist from the norm as the main character Shay Patrick Cormac, changes elegance and becomes an Assassin Hunter! Gamers at EGX had the chance to play about 20 minutes of the River Valley Map, which is a hybrid of Ship and Foot action. There are new hazards for Shay to negotiate like the poison gas clouds, although Shay does have a form of Gas Mask to help counter this. The ship sequences are a little different from normal as you no longer have to capture the enemy ship, this time you have to defend and Read more

At EGX we had about 20 minutes of game play where we had the opportunity to liberate one of the government held bases.

Project CARS - E3 screenshot (6)_1404232397

There are two ways to define a racing game, its either arcade style or simulation and Project CARS defiantly falls into the Latter, as over the last couple of days we have got our hands on Project CARS from Bandai Namco and we have play tested it through thoroughly, as we had the chance to race various cars from the GT3 classes such as Aston Martin and Porsche  around tracks like Silverstone and Brands hatch with a degree of different weather. I  would have to say that no expense has been spared into the making of Project CARS, with the detail was stunning with Read more

It’s an end of an era as Earls Court closed its doors on the largest gaming event in the UK, with EGX 2014 being a big hit what is the future for the expo as Earls Court is been demolished to make way for housing.   So the question is what location can take over the reigns and put on a EGX 2015 event to attract gamers from all over the world. The possible locations for the EGX 2015 event could be as follows: Keep the event in London with places like the ExCel which has 1,000,000 sq. ft. of Read more

Middle earth Shadow of Mordor1

Shadow of Mordor is set between the story of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, and this week we got to try the game out for the first time at EGX 2014 on the WB stand and Shadow of Mordor did not disappoint.
