Just Dance 2015 Preview

I have never been one for physical coordination, but at this year’s EB expo I decided to throw caution to the wind and try my hand at the newest instalment of the Just Dance series. Coming up to the Ubisoft exhibit at the expo I was greeted a by a cavalcade of lights and sounds. The stall had dancers who were dressed in the neon pop/hip-hop styles of the dancing avatars in the game and dance...

Samurai Warriors 4 Preview

The gameplay of the Warriors series and its specific spin-off, Samurai Warriors, is an interesting combination of action hack-and-slash and strategy. The player taking on the role of heroic commander warriors as they take to the field against entire armies. Although the game setting has some grounding in history, the series is well known for taking many liberties with its depiction of historical e...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Preview

I generally preface these articles by talking about my own experience (or lack thereof) with a given game or franchise. I am happy to say that I have had quite of experience with the Call of Duty franchise, and first encountered it when the games were still setting themselves during World War Two. I have played through every installment (more or less) and have enjoyed both the single and multiplay...

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Hands-On Preview

Every year, TT Games and Warner Bros. release a new Lego videogame that utilises one of its many licensed properties. From the original Lego Star Wars games to last year’s Lego The Hobbit, each new game adds new features and tidies up the graphics and are pretty typically solid gaming experiences. One of the more prominent series that Lego puts out is without a doubt Lego Batman, and as a huge Bat...

Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom Hands-On Preview

Do you love Adventure Time? How about old-school Zelda games? Then Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is literally the perfect game for you. Combining elements of Pendleton Ward’s hugely popular animated series with the solid gameplay elements of the original Zelda games (that still stand the test of time) results in a fusion that is fun, exciting and enticing.

Fortress Sieging with an Elephant in Far Cry 4

From one psychopath to another, the Far Cry universe has gotten a lot more eclectic over the past few years. Now, self-proclaimed king Pagan Min (who is named after a real-life Burmese king, who reigned in the mid 1800’s) is primed to make Vaas look like chopped liver by comparison. Kyrat is his domain, and though it may be dangerous and teeming with trigger-happy Nepali warriors, the player...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Impressions

2K Australia and Gearbox Software have travelled to the moon and back to deliver the evolution of the Borderlands series, with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. While the whacky first-person shooter is set to be released on October 16, the game steered into action at EB Expo 2014 last weekend. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is essentially the sequel to the original Borderlands and prequel to Borderlands 2...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Interview with Senior Writer Jakub Szamalek

The Witcher game series is a Fantasy RPG which bucks the tropes of Fantasy RPGs by painting a grim, dark setting with plenty of moral shades of grey. We’ve previously covered the game’s extended and beautiful trailer here, but at EB Expo I had the opportunity to ambush one of the writers of the series and question him about the story for the upcoming installment. Below is my interview ...

Tom Clancy’s The Division Hands-off Impressions

Game of Show. Without question. Those were my immediate thoughts after watching a live presentation of a brand-new Tom Clancy’s The Division demo at the EB Games Expo 2014. Other rumblings I overheard: “Does it so much better than Destiny“, “Bungie is in a lot of trouble” and “Destiny Shmestiny!”. Okay, that last one I made up. The Division doesn’t e...

Tom Clancy’s The Division Interview with Game Director Ryan Barnard

Tom Clancy’s The Division is a game that impresses with every showing, teaching us a tad more about it every time. At this year’s EB Games Expo, I learnt more about the game than I expected to. Our hands-off preview, soon-to-be-published, will elucidate further, but our interview with game director Ryan Barnard clarified some common questions as well. Read on to find out exactly how th...
