Amiibo at EB Games Expo 2014

I was excited to get my hands on Nintendo’s answer to the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures at this years EB Games Expo with one big question I wanted answered, what exactly will these figures do apart from look awesome on my shelf ? Unfortunately, Nintendo Australia know about as much as we do regarding the issue and were unable to give me any more information on how they work ...

Bloodborne Hands-On Preview

FROMSOFTWARE have become synonymous with creating difficult, trial-and-error style action RPG’s. From King’s Field to Demon’s Souls, then Dark Souls and Dark Souls II, they have proven to be masters of the genre. Now the team is stepping it up again for the PS4 exclusive Bloodborne. Firstly the elephant in the room: Bloodborne isn’t Dark Souls, but the two games share a lot of similarities. Instea...

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Hands-On Preview

With Ubisoft releasing two very different Assassin’s Creed titles this year and everybody’s focus being on the next-gen Assassin’s Creed: Unity, I thought I would break off from the crowd and check out Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, the game that might very well be the last we see of Assassin’s Creed on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Rogue is set after the events of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flags bet...

Evolve Hands-On Preview

After their huge success with Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios are back and teaming up with 2K Games to bring us Evolve; a squad based 4 v 1 multiplayer game that has four humans teaming up to take down one ever-evolving monster. The humans need to use teamwork and cooperation to take down the monster before it picks them off one by one. The hunters have four different classes – Medic, Assault, Su...

Super Smash Bros. Wii U Hands On Preview

Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS is finally out on store shelves and is a huge hit here at EB Games Expo 2014 with everyone and their dog whipping out their 3DS to collect as many StreetPass’ as possible and get into the 4 player Smash action. However I am one of the rare few who are not delving in early with the 3DS version and have always had my eyes on the HD prize with Super Smash Bros. 4, ...

Interview with the Producer of Ubisoft’s The Crew

The Crew has a lot of competition within the driving genre and its time of release isn’t helping the situation with Forza Horizon 2 just launched and Driveclub right around the corner. However with its huge open world, social aspects, story and customisation The Crew is the racer I am most looking forward to when it releases later this year. We catch up with Ivory Tower Managing Director and...

NBA 2K15 Hands-on Impressions

Dear readers, you may have noticed from some (/all) of my previous articles covering the EB Expo that I am not really a console gamer by any stretch of the imagination. I am noticing that this is turning out to be quite a problem when providing coverage at this expo as most of the games being showcased are only playable on gaming consoles. For my ignorance, I apologise as I do my best to provide a...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Hands-on Impressions

This game is perhaps the hardest I have ever had to play. It might not be because the gameplay is particularly difficult, although I have read that Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2015 does pride itself on being a very technical game which players can gain mastery over slowly. My main problem was simply that I am not a console gamer and playing this on a Playstation 4 in a limited space of time within ...

Alien: Isolation Hands-off Impressions

The Creative Assembly’s, Alien: Isolation is just as frightening as the 1979 sci-fi phenomenon, ‘Alien’ by Ridley Scott. The video presentation by the creative lead, Alistair Hop at the EB Games Expo over the weekend, showed the first gameplay demo of the survival horror title. And let me tell you, it was enough to make me jump in my seat and hold onto the person next to me (as e...

Until Dawn Hands-on Preview

Poor Ashley…or Chris. In Until Dawn, difficult choices are given to the player, ones that will determine the shape of the story moving forward. Sound familiar? It’s a philosophy that started – at least to this extent – with Indigo Prophecy and continued with Heavy Rain, both developed by Quantic Dream. But while the latter had you playing four lead characters, Until Dawn gi...

WWE 2K15 Hands-on Preview

“FINALLY!” We get to go hands-on with WWE 2K15! Having skipped the prior two entries in the WWE video game franchise, I have suffered from withdrawal for quite some time now. I started watching professional wrestling when I was 6 years old. I used to purchase every game for every damn console! Eventually, Yukes got lazy. They know it’s true. Now, with 2K in charge of the IP, and ...

Dead Island 2 Hands On Preview

Deep Silver have returned from the bloody shores of Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide with an appetising follow-up, that is set to be released in spring next year. While the survival horror franchise was originally developed by Techland (Dying Light), Dead Island 2 is the making of Yager Development (Spec Ops: The Line), who have taken zombies to the luxurious streets and beaches of California....
