Event Report | EGX Rezzed, Tobacco Dock [14/04/18]

EGX Rezzed has sadly been and gone, and here I sit on an balmy Spring morning writing about it way too late in comparison to when I attended. Last weekend I found myself in the beautiful Tobacco Dock in London for the event that brings together all the best and brightest in the indie gaming scene, with a large variety of upcoming and recently released gems to try out, along with my good friend EnotheStrife (whom you might recognise as my partner on my Return To Yharnam streams of Bloodborne). Not only that but the big guns were also in attendance with Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft showing off the future indie offerings for their respective consoles. I sampled a large cross section of different games, across multiple genres, but how were the games? Continue reading “Event Report | EGX Rezzed, Tobacco Dock [14/04/18]”

Tournament Update | Sakura Fight Festa [07/04/18]

My second tournament set of the year and a bit of a gap since my last one in January; this time taking on NGI Events anime fighting tournament, Sakura Fight Festa. I entered both BlazBlue: Centralfiction 2.0 and Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late[st], the latter of which I switched mains on only a few days ago, but I’m much more comfortable with Gordeau and his abilities than I was with Carmine so it was a logical switch. Right, but let’s get down to this already.  Continue reading “Tournament Update | Sakura Fight Festa [07/04/18]”

Tournament Update | Mayamada GamePad [06-01-18]

Not even a week in and I’ve already had my first tournament of the year. Yesterday, I fought in three separate tournaments at Mayamada’s winter GamePad event, Gaming for Grenfell. This event took place in London, and I entered the Street Fighter V, BlazBlue: Centralfiction, and Smash Bros. for Wii U tournaments. I’ve had an interesting time since my last tournament entry for Revolution 2017, including changing mains in both Street Fighter V (to Ed, from Balrog) and BlazBlue: Centralfiction (dropping Celica to a pocket in favour of Jubei), but I entered tournaments anyway despite not feeling 100% ready for them.

MCM Comicon London | Event Highlights

Very late to the party on this one, but it’s time for another event report, this time covering the games at MCM London Comicon on the weekend of 27th-29th October. Comicon isn’t exactly well-known for it’s games, but there’s always been a decent showing to keep gamers happy among the comics, movies, and anime. I actually remember playing Guilty Gear with one of my friends at last October’s event. However, enough about that, what did I play and how was it?

Tournament Update | NGI Revolution [07/10/17]

Another tournament, one that is likely my last one of the year. Yesterday I fought in Revolution that took place in London, an anime fighter tournament with some of the best players in Europe in attendance. I entered the Under Night In-Bight EXE: Late(st) and BlazBlue: Centralfiction tournaments, as well as playing casuals in various other games. Continue reading “Tournament Update | NGI Revolution [07/10/17]”

EGX 2017 | Friday Highlights

How about my next report of Eurogamer Expo 2017? There were a lot of games, a lot of gamers and a lot of queues, but the event was a huge success for me this year with a lot to see and love. Although there was a tremendous amount of empty space on the showfloor, this really did help on this day due to the sharp increase in attendees. But, more importantly, how were the games? A quick note, I’ll only be covering non-Nintendo games in this article, if you wanted to see my thoughts on Nintendo’s showing, it was posted on Nintendo Scene and can now be found on here as well.

EGX 2017 | Nintendo Highlights

This article was originally posted on Nintendo Scene on 24th September 2017.

It’s that time of year again, when gamers of all ages descend upon Birmingham for the annual Eurogamer Expo. Nintendo were once again there in force, with tournaments and a large amount of new and upcoming games. Obviously Super Mario Odyssey made up the lion’s share of the floorspace devoted to the Big N, but what did I get up to at the event? As a short disclaimer before I start, I’ll only be talking about titles that I played or set out to find out more about, so there maybe other titles unmentioned here that were present that I missed.
