Dragon’s Dogma Release Panel

Dragon’s Dogma Release Panel
Following the recent reviews of Dragon’s Dogma and the full game release last Friday, I couldn’t resist getting in and down to the Q&A session at the Gamespot UK stage, hoping to glean that little bit more before I head out to buy the game in stores. The only disappointing thing about this session demo was that it really showed me how I don’t successfully play the game in comparison. Looks like I’m going to have to spend a few more... 

Sleeping Dogs Q&A and Demo

Sleeping Dogs Q&A and Demo
Sleeping Dogs has had a rather turbulent time in development. Initially set to be a re-launch of the original Xbox’s True Crime gaming series; though with new developers, gaming style and of course, a new name, it’s been great to finally get some hands on experience. Topped off with a fantastic Q&A session today, MCM Buzz managed to get some great feeds out on what to expect from Square Enix in August this year. One of the leading developers... 

Gamespot UK: Trials Evolution Tournament

Gamespot UK: Trials Evolution Tournament
So to kick off the fantastic Expo weekend, one of the first main events pits gamers head to head on Trials Evolution at the MCM Gamespot UK stage. Set to truly challenge these avid gamers Gamespot gave only one hour to see who really is champ on the dirt bike. Perhaps fortunately for others, my skills in Trials Evolution HD have been found somewhat lacking ever since the game’s initial release as a browser game a couple of years back. So kicking... 

Hands on with Dragon’s Dogma

Hands on with Dragon’s Dogma
  The release of the Dragon’s Dogma demo is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace and will follow on the Playstation Network on 25th April. Not wasting any time, I booted up the demo to give it a go and see what I thought about this creature team bash up! First thoughts on the demo; now that’s a shiny menu! For the genre of the game, it’s everything we expect to see for a game of this genre; from the layout to the level of customisation,... 

Walking Dead Gameplay Reveal

Walking Dead Gameplay Reveal
A big fear with the Walking Dead game was that it would follow more in the footsteps of the TV series over the original comic. Well what better way to abate those fears than by opening the first gameplay footage video with a few lines from Robert Kirkman the series’ creator and writer. After a long period of anticipation it’s good to see some actual action in this nicely formatted trailer, moving from the comic’s visuals to the actual... 

Official Minecraft Lego sets in development

Official Minecraft Lego sets in development
According to a press release made by LEGO CUUSOO, a branch of the Lego Company designed to take submissions for new Lego sets and assess their worth, there is at least one set on the way based on the incredibly popular PC game Minecraft. Back in December last year the game’s developer Mojang submitted to the company the concept for Lego sets based on the game and began a petition. The petition recently crossed ten thousand signatures which... 

Mercury Hg Review

Mercury Hg Review
Mercury Meltdown is a massively successful title for the PSP. UTV Ignition was onto a winner with the game’s simplicity of sliding around a blob of Mercury through progressively harder courses. Now, five years after the initial game and two Mercury titles later, UTV Ignition has finally released their first HD Mercury title, Mercury Hg. Who knew that rolling around liquids through obstacles could be so fun? Mercury Hg requires players to...

Review: Galaga Legions DX

Review: Galaga Legions DX
It may not be as fondly remembered as Pac-Man or Space Invaders but Galaga was one of the pioneering titles behind the top down shooter and video games in general. Fortunately Namco knows this and has therefore included it in its Namco Generations series, along with Pac-Man and Metro-Cross. Unfortunately Galaga Legions DX deviates from the original’s formula in a way that won’t be appreciated by all its fans. The original Galaga was...
