Hands on preview: Tales of Xillia 2

xillia2

I was a little wary beginning my preview of Tales Of Xillia 2. I’m not often grabbed by JRPGs, and with it being a sequel I was worried I’d be left behind by the plot, having no idea what was going on. Thankfully, despite my initial concerns, it left a much better impression than that.

Hands on preview – Project CARS

projectcars1

“Have you played a racing simulator before?” I’m asked as I stand in Bandai Namco’s Sydney office. “I’ve… tried to” I reply. This elicits a laugh. “Yeah, that’s a good answer”. I won’t pretend that I’m the target audience of Project CARS (which is short for Community Assisted Racing Simulator) because I’m really not. It’s designed for people who take racing games seriously, who know all the famous circuits like the back of their hand, and understand the differences between all the classes of cars besides “These ones are faster”. I’m not great at racing games, and I lack the […]

Dragon Age: Inquisition – E3 2014 Impressions

DAI E3 2014 1

I’ll be honest – one of the games I was most looking forward to seeing at E3 this year was Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, this excitement was mixed with trepidation – whilst Dragon Age: Origins remains one of my favourite video games, Dragon Age 2 never reached the same compelling heights of its predecessor. After viewing the 35 minute E3 presentation of Dragon Age: Inquisition I can excitedly say that this game is bringing the magic of the Dragon Age world back with a vengeance.

Sunset Overdrive – Hands On at E3 2014

Sunset Overdrive E3 2014

The zombie survival horror shooty what’s-its have been done to death but Insomniac‘s pitch of Sunset Overdrive was just different enough to pique my interest and entice me to wander over to the demo at Microsoft’s booth at this year’s E3.

Hands on with the Titanfall beta

titanfallbeta1

Let’s get one thing out of the way straight away – I’m not a fan of multiplayer FPS games, and I am not someone who gets excited about challenging, engaging, player vs player multiplayer maps. I have my feet very firmly planted in the ‘single player is king’ camp. With that said – I had a damn lot of fun with Titanfall, and based on the strength of what it offers to players, it just might be the killer console seller than Xbox One is looking for.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 hands on

castlevania

Preview events are usually a pretty standard fare – you go into an office building or a booked out room, where consoles have been set up and you play through sections of a game. Nothing out of the ordinary. The preview event I attended last week took place in a Red Cross blood donor centre. Yeah, it was a little odd, but it makes more sense when you take into consideration it was a preview event for the upcoming Castlevania game, Lords of Shadow 2, in which you play the infamous vampire Dracula. Attendees not only got to step into […]

Review – Fallout Lanius – a Fallout fan film

falloutlanius1

It can be hard sometimes being a fan. You love something so much, you cherish it with such intensity that it can sometimes become your own life. Yet there are those out there who hate or despise that same something, and those who want to turn it into something it isn’t, something different. Me? I’m a Star Wars fan, so you can imagine the roller coaster ride of the past twenty years, being a fan of a series that constantly updates itself as if it’s trying to keep up instead of standing tall as the innovator it always was.
