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]”

Preview | Hands-On With The Siege And The Sandfox (EGX Rezzed)

Stumbling around EGX Rezzed, I chanced upon a large variety of games of a myriad of genres, but I found myself drawn to a particular aesthetic and found a game I hadn’t expected. Created by a small team of 5 known as Cardboard Sword with development beginning in 2015, The Siege and The Sandfox is, for the lack of a better term, a 2D stealth adventure. I’d like to point out before I start that the demo I played is unfinished, so some of the things I say about it might change before release, but how is the game in its current state and are there any things I found out about The Siege and the Sandfox that may change it in the future?

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?
