Splinter Cell: Blacklist brings back the franchise with Sam Fisher appointed the acting commander of an elite team of operatives called ‘Fourth Echelon’, who need to put a stop to the terrorist group ‘Blacklist’ before it’s too late.

EB Expo 2012: Darksiders II Wii U Preview

The EB Expo gave us a chance to try out a great range of games, one of them being the Darksiders 2 Wii U version. The original game came out in late August, and with this version slated for release on November 31, you’d want to see and feel some differences between the two games. I’m not sure if it was getting used to the controllers’ joysticks, but the game did feel different from the original. I...

EB Expo 2012: God of War: Ascension Single-Player Hands-On

Around the bend and behind the back wall of the Playstation space at the EB Expo started the queue for God of War: Ascension. The lines were never really huge, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s because many couldn’t find it. But I thankfully did see the queue and got in with about thirteen others to simultaneously try it out. The portion playable was the level that started on...

Kinect Sesame Street TV Preview EB Games Expo 2012

At the EB Games Expo today I had the pleasure of checking out the latest Sesame Street video game on the Xbox Live Kinect, called Kinect Sesame Street TV. At first I was going to dismiss the game as something beneath me; as so many attendees at the event had done beforehand. But you know what, I’m not that kind of guy; life is full of new experiences, so why not try something new? The Kinect...

EB Expo 2012: Wii U Game Showcase

The Wii U made its Australian debut during the EB Expo this weekend. Before the public got their hands on the console, Nintendo invited a selection of media and VIP personnel to give the Wii U a try. Nintendo’s impressive booth allowed visitors to try out a selection of launch window games, including New Super Mario Bros U, Rayman Legends and ZombiU. The games I got my hands on were quite impressi...

Skylanders Giants Hands-On Preview – EB Expo 2012

By now you have most likely heard of the latest gaming craze that has swept the globe, no not the new Call of Duty game, but another Activision game. That’s right, Skylanders, a franchise born almost completely out of the company’s experimentation with the Spyro the Dragon IP. Last year Activision released the first Skylanders game to a fair amount of critical acclaim and stacks of cas...

EB Expo 2012: Tomb Raider Hands-On

In spending the whole opening day at EB Expo 2012 on Friday, I got a chance to play some of my personal highly anticipated titles of the coming year. Tomb Raider was one of them. Having been a Tomb Raider fan since the original, I was curious to see how Lara controlled in this fresh new take, and I’m about to let you know. Of course the game does not release until March next year so in readi...

Today marked the beginning of the 2012 Sydney EB Games Expo held at Olympic Park. This marks the first appearance of the Expo in Sydney and the second time ever that it has been held in any capacity. The very first time was held, it was Brisbane, so this is a first for almost everybody in NSW. Anyway, as media, we were allowed into the conference hall early for a Master Chief awakening photo shoot...

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Hands-On Preview – EB Expo 2012

Previously I had gotten a chance to interview Producer at Sumo Digital, the developers of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Steve Lycett in which we discussed the game and various other topics. It wasn’t until earlier today at the EB Expo did I get a chance to finally get my hands behind the wheel on this game. SEGA had a very humble booth set up with a multitude of consoles set up e...
