SAW II at Eurogamer 2010

Oct 18, 2010

For a game that relies on atmosphere to ramp up the fear factor, demoing SAW II in a room that’s thick with the sound of gun shots from the various shooters and failing to provide headsets seems a colossal balls up. What it means is that the only impression you can get about the game comes from the visuals. The demo kicks off with you slicing your face open...

Eurogamer Expo 2010: Games roundup

Oct 15, 2010

This year’s Eurogamer Expo is fast becoming little more than a distant memory, so I thought it was about time to get the rest of my coverage out of the way (links to all Expo articles published by CG writers thus far can be found at the bottom of this article).

The impact Goldeneye had on me and, I suspect, every gamer in the universe at the time, was enormous. On consoles at least, there was very little out there that had as much multiplayer pull as Goldeneye. Today’s widely held belief that the best games are the games you can play with your friends, either online or in the same room, has its origins in a few...
