TWO reviews in the space of a month? We’re mad right? Mad! Brian Mad from Madcastle! Jump on in to find out what on Earth we thought of Ubisoft’s latest loveable platformer Rayman Legends; does it compare to Origins? Is there ANYTHING different? Does it still feel like you’re playing a cartoon? Have their been too many question marks in this excerpt? All this and much less, inside!
We’re off! And in the first of an unstoppable SLEW of Eurogamer Expo based posts, we take on Respawn Entertainment’s ineffable Titanfall. It’s won our coveted Game of the Show Award, so find out why we couldn’t stop dribbling about it by reading our literary-based dribble INSIDE!
Once Guesty finally finished frothing at the mouth, we sat him in the office and beat some words out of him. The first were all pretty much indistinguishable gargles, then after a month or so he started actual words, but preceded every one with Holy- something or other. Eventually he strung a coherent sentence together and BANG. Here we are. Check out what we think of Rocksteady’s follow up to the stunning Arkham Asylum, have they kept a tight hold of that prestigious gaming crown, or has the Penguin gone an’ ‘ad it!? FIND OUT HERE AND SUCH.
Rob’s up next for his Of the Year BIT; is there ANYTHING that’s managed to conjour even a convoluted smile this year? Is there anything that’s caused a tall-standing-lamp-throwing rage? Is there anything that’s invoked a vague sense of reserved achievement in amongst 2012’s trundling nuances? Not sure? Neither is he, as this article proves! Get inside and have yourself a shufty boys and girls!
Rob takes a brief look back at ‘how it’s come to this’ with motion gaming, and goes and dives face first into our first of two upcoming Kinect playtests. This one straight from last week’s EuroGamer. Have we been bestowed with the GREETEST bit of gaming solution kit on Earth? WHO KNOWS. We do. Sort of.
We stick our ore in where it isn’t required and find out why Forza 5 caused such an uproar and ask what it means for the future? Also Turn 10 are disappointed in themselves. Well so you should be Turn 10. So you should be. Now go to your room and think about what you’ve done.
We finally get to grips with this year’s most promising shooter so far. If you’re bored of testosterone encumbered shrieks of ‘Revive me!’, or mindless repetitive deathmatches, Brink is the one to set those lenses on! OR IS IT!?? Read Rob’s thoughts on Bethesda’s class-based TF2-alike FPS!
GO ON THEN!
They’ve only gone and released a full ELEVEN minute demo video for MGS: Ground Zeroes, featuring actual gameplay, you know! Watch the whole thing inside and try not to dribble yourself to death. Guesty did, but we’re not sure that was actually anything to do with the video. ENJOY!
The first of our Let’s Not Play videos swans into view, entitled so because, let’s face it, we can’t really play anything. Well not to any sort of standard anyway. Here we’re seen diving around wildly in front of the telly attempting to take on Child of Eden; lewd comments, confusion and a broken coffee table in tow! Hoorah!
It’s video time AGAIN, as we show off Rob’s appalling sniper skills and his breathtaking ability to somehow miss an integral mechanic of the game and make the first few minutes of the video utterly redundant! We take a look at the downloadable preorder bonus for Hitman Absolution, which comes in the salacious form of a Sniper Challenge mission. Old baldy’s back. Are YOU getting it?
Here we go then, the first ever Respawn competition! We’re moving up in the world and so could you be, with one of these salacious codes for the newly released EU version of NASCAR 2011. If you’re as awful as us, you’ll spend most of the time scraping bits of your right side door off the barriers, but luckily, being as awful as we are is UNLIKELY. Get involved YOU ALL.
Rob gets his teeth stuck into Gran Turismo 5, a million billion years in development, successor to the most popular racing series since Jeremy Clarkson: The Game, an undoubted spectacular performance! Is it everything we hoped for and more? Is it better than that new car smell? READ THIS AND KNOW EVERYTHING. Sort of.
