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 ...

Lords of the Fallen Hands-On Preview

The Action RPG is an ever-growing genre, and Lords of the Fallen looks to take advantage of that. Lords of the Fallen is a brand new IP from the Deck13 Interactive & CI Games and published by Bandai Namco. It takes place in a fictional world where no sin is forgiven. After long-forgotten monsters and demons threaten to destroy the world, our protagonist Harkyn, recently released from prison, s...

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...

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 ...
