Horizon Zero Dawn: TGS hands-on preview

Sep 21, 2016

Of the non-VR games on offer at Tokyo Game Show, Horizon Zero Dawn was the most popular. The wait for the twenty minute demo rarely dipped below two hours on the press days, and I imagine it was a nightmare once the public joined the fray. It was a very straight forward demo that revealed nothing of the story. It was set in the middle of an autumnal looking...

Valkyria: Azure Revolution – TGS hands-on preview

Sep 18, 2016

The latest entry in the Valkyria Chronicles saga, Valkyria: Azure Revolution, has taken a rather dramatic turn away from the original games. The PS3 debut gained critical approval but suffered from fairly weak sales, so it isn’t too surprising that there has been a shift in the way it plays. Whether these changes are for the better remains to be seen. Rather...

Resident Evil 7: TGS hands-on preview

Sep 17, 2016

“Lantern”, an extended version of the Gamescom RE7 demo, opens with an unpleasant game of hide and seek. We are chased into a rickety old house (you know the kind) by a lovely old crone who desperately wants to bash our brains in. She’s a bit mad, you see. It’s all first person and shares the same grainy visuals as the first, publicly available demo....
