EB Expo 2016 – Horizon Zero Dawn Impressions

I have been following Horizon Zero Dawn for quite some time. I mean, it is going to be Guerrilla Games first IP since Killzone and it is going to be an action RPG set on Earth after an apocalyptic event. The game stars Aloy, a hunter who hunts machines, which are the prominent species on Earth. At this year’s EB Games Expo, Horizon Zero Dawn was the one of the centrepieces of the PlayStation Booth. After trying out the game, I’m becoming more and more hopeful this game is going to be excellent. The experience started with a demonstration of various gameplay mechanics available in the demo. The demo itself was a rehash of the E3 demo shown earlier in … Continue reading

Final Fantasy XV Impressions – EBGames Expo 2016

final-fantasy-xv-logo

This year at the EBGames Expo held in Sydney there was a playable build of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV video game from Square Enix held at the Namco Bandai booth. Final Fantasy XV follows the adventure of Noctis and his crew of guys as they road-trip it across the countryside for bromance reasons. Our demo took place in a desert area, where they are tasked by Cidney to kill some mobs just outside of the garage. Exploration in Final Fantasy XV is a bit strange. Much like in classic Final Fantasy games, monsters are invisible in an explorable area, but what makes this strange is that the game feels like a third-person action game. The combat controls are locked … Continue reading

Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue Impressions – EBGames Expo 2016

ebgames-expo-2016-0022

Over the weekend at this years EBGames Expo gaming convention, Square Enix and Bandai Namco had a playable build of the latest Kingdom Hearts remake, Kingdom Hearts II.8. This remake, as far as I know, is based on the second Kingdom Hearts game, but presents players with a new control scheme that makes things a bit more fluid and enjoyable. Of course, the core essence of Kingdom Hearts is still there, and you can feel it with every moment that you play. Our gameplay demo began with the main blue-haired girl, whose name I forget, standing before a castle across a broken bridge. It seems that in order to get across, the player would have to take her hunting for … Continue reading
