One of the first games we tested at Gamescom was Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, welcomed by Tascha who joined Funcom in April (nice tattoos by the way!). We missed the introduction, traffic was hell around Koelnmesse but sat down and immediately started playing. My friend and I agreed on one thing rather fast though, this game has potential to be something really great! Continue reading Hands-on Mutant Year Zero

Tetra’s escape is a puzzle/platform game developed by French studio ABX Game Studio and released for mobiles in 2016, now with an Xbox version published by Ratalaika Games. The game places you in control of the little Tetras, small and colorful blocky creatures with the ability to transform on Tetrominos, blocks with the same shape as the classic brick game. Prepare to burn some neurons to find the right position to place all these blocks and transform your little friends according to reach the exit of the stage in 64 challenging levels. Let’s roll… I mean, let’s check our review for the game. Continue reading Tetra’s Escape review

Me and my friend from Xbox Gamers Belgium had the opportunity to get a hands-on with both Pro Evolution Soccer 19 and Fifa 19, we had a slightly better introduction for PES, being greeted by a developer that explained the new features and basics. While for Fifa we just kinda got dropped into a few games without any introduction. Continue reading Hands-on compare with PES 19 and Fifa 19 at Gamescom
EA’s business and press hall was memorable, no effort (& money) was spared in dressing up the room and to take good care of all the people present. As with all of our coverage we kinda got in last-minute, so we couldn’t test everything. We did spend a very big chunk of time on Battlefield V and Fifa 19, but sadly didn’t play Anthem. Here is our positive impression from our hands-on with Battlefield V! Continue reading Hands-on Battlefield V at Gamescom
Gamescom is a beehive, hectic and insanely busy, so it was very refreshing to play some smaller games like Robothorium to escape all the people and just enjoy some good gameplay. Me and the admin from Xbox Belgium Gamers got an appointment with the friendly fellows from Goblinz Studio, to play the turn-based action RPG.
THQ Nordic is on a roll lately, I’m really looking forward to see what they will do with Timesplitters, they just bought the IP again. My guess is that developer Dambuster will make a new one or remaster the older games. (We can hope right?) Anyway, I got myself invited for the THQ trailer presentation. Here is what LifeisXbox saw, I was too late with getting a hands-on with something (pretty disappointing) but what I saw was really decent. THQ is back and the gaming industry should be very glad about that! Continue reading THQ Nordic presentation (Gamescom)
I played a lot of games at Gamescom but Metro Exodus made the best impression, this truly is and will be one of the best games in 2019. In the 35 minutes that I played you could clearly see that developer 4A Games is using the previous two Metro games as a guide but isn’t afraid to add and change-up the known formula. Continue reading Hands-on Metro Exodus
We had a small 30 min window of free time between some appointments and while walking around I saw a small booth from Varsav studio with Bee Simulator. We previously posted the game announcement on Twitter and many of my followers were intrigued and responded with some bee puns. For example, “I get what the buzz is about”. So I was actually pretty excited that I could play it and give a quick preview from Bee Simulator.
Here we are again, the Italian Milestone is at it once again. I lost my count with all the Xbox One games that they have released so far, mostly with a bike focus. MXGP Pro is the official Motocross Championship game, as we know with Milestone’s Valentino Rossi, the dev has a pretty decent reputation when it comes down to fan service. Clean your clutch and let us check if Milestone’s other reputation of releasing mediocre games stands too!
