Hands on preview with Battlefield Hardline

I had the chance this week to have a hands-on preview of the upcoming Battlefield: Hardline, the newest instalment of the Battlefield franchise being developed by Visceral Games. It’s a significant departure from the military theme that’s been so endemic to the previous games, harkening back to the old playground favourite, Cops and Robbers; a relic from a time when kids could point their fingers at another and shout BANG! without being brought before the vice-principal. Ah, but the game.

Interview – Graham Nardone, Associate Producer of The Sims 4

Mor goobida bibso neb neb? Nar harmy glarch! I remember a household I made in the first The Sims game, way back when it was released. While most of the family were spending their days earning money, making friends and trying to get ahead in the rat race, there was Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob was eccentric. Thanks to mods from the time, he dressed like a King. Bob liked to make life difficult for the others in the house, and would frequently interrupt them and impose his wild indulgences on them. With The Sims 4 due to be released next […]

EA and Bioware unveil Shadow Realms – an online action RPG

I’ll be honest. I’m an unashamed Bioware fangirl. It’s at the point where I’d probably play a sports game made by Bioware, simply because it’s Bioware. Thankfully for my sanity, the latest IP announced from the award winning studio is not a sports game but is an online action RPG called Shadow Realms. And boy, does it look intriguing.

Community Report: EA Gamescom Event

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to find negative opinions about EA. Google might be your friend, but the auto-completes suggests that its no friend of EA. The company was voted ‘Worst Company in the World’ in 2012 and 2013, and if you weren’t a gamer, you would be scratching your head about what this evil corporation might be up to. When you hear of things like that, you start to wonder – what twisted sort of person might work there? Are they filled with loathing and contempt for those beyond, or are they perhaps like John Smith from […]

Dragon Age: Inquisition – E3 2014 Impressions

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.

Living in a powder keg: Battlefield 4

If you’re a fan of games where you run around cities and warzones, shooting at enemies with similarly dressed squad mates then get excited because Battlefield 4 is coming to a platform near you! I was lucky to see a live gameplay demonstration presented by David Silvermann (Global Director of International Marketing, EA) and this latest instalment of the Battlefield franchise includes more vehicles and more destruction for fans of the series, and introduces features to bring in new initiates. Built using the Frostbite 3 engine, Silvermann discussed the benefit of this in the symbiotic relationship between the engine and […]

Review – FUSE

It has been a while since I’d anticipated a game as much as I did with FUSE. The last was Bioshock Infinite, which I’m sure many agree was worth the wait. Having the chance to play a preview of FUSE though, this anticipation was different. I had an idea of what to expect and knew what Insomniac Games hoped the game would be, so I was curious to see how it lived up to these lofty expectations.
