Saints Row IV Hands On Preview

Saints Row IV Hands On Preview
Volition and Deep Silver have been pitching Saints Row IV as the biggest and most over the top entry yet. A big statement for a series known for crazy stories, phallic shaped melee weapons and the ability to run naked around the world. How do you outdo the madness that was Saints Row the Third? By making the series protagonist President of the United States, throwing him into an alien invasion story and giving him superpowers of course. After playing... 

Deadpool Video Game Preview

Deadpool Video Game Preview
May’s MCM London Comic Con saw the very first hands-on playable version of the much anticipated Deadpool video game, and if the queues were anything to go by, there is a LOT of interest in this game. It’s easy to see why, with Deadpool being such a popular character in the Marvel universe and fans crying out for the opportunity to kick ass as the smart mouthed, mental mercenary. Graphically it has to be said that Deadpool doesn’t look... 

Game & Wario Wii U Preview

Game & Wario Wii U Preview
While I’m not usually a supporter of mini-game collections, the WarioWare games have a blindingly fast pace and off the wall sense of humour that keeps them from getting stale and makes then great at parties. Very minimal explanation is needed, for you just jump in and have a laugh. Game & Wario is in essence an entry in the WarioWare franchise, but one that in some ways misses the point of why I love the series. Game & Wario has several... 

Cloudberry Kingdom Wii U Preview

Cloudberry Kingdom Wii U Preview
Cloudberry Kingdom is possibly the most exciting Wii U game on show at this weekend’s MCM London Comic Con. Starting its life as a Kickstarter project for PC, and achieving funding as a Wii U game as a stretch goal, the game is a procedurally generated 2D platformer that delights in being unfeasibly hard. Picture the most spectacularly difficult bullet hell shooter you’ve seen, add in moving platforms and jump your way to an exit. The... 

Defiance Beta Hands On

Defiance Beta Hands On
SyFy’s new show Defiance will start airing in April 2013. So far it looks to be a fantastic show with a beautiful blend of survival, character profile development and big flashy battles. Who doesn’t like big flashy battles? Set during the aftermath of an interspecies war held on Earth, aliens and mankind have come to co-exist to survive on the war torn planet. With no main body of government, frontier cities such as Defiance are the closest thing... 

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Preview

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Preview
At this weekend’s MCM Expo I was able to get my hands on an updated build of the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I’ve played through the arcade mode of the game, as well as the new Mushroom Mode, both of which are looking considerably better than they were when we covered them last month. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 played identically to the versions on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It could be played either on the Gamepad screen or the... 

Aliens: Colonial Marines Multiplayer Preview at London MCM Expo

Aliens: Colonial Marines Multiplayer Preview at London MCM Expo
Coming out in Febuary 2013, Aliens: Colonial Marines is one of the most anticipated third person shooters on the horizon. I was able to sit down with a group of fellow gamers to play through one of the game’s multiplayer deathmatch modes. We were the marines, the developers were the Aliens and the battle was on. While the Aliens were fast moving, agile and able to run on the walls and ceilings with ease, as the marines we started off as sitting... 

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U
Many of the writers at MCMBuzz, myself included, are the sort of gamers always looking forward to the next big thing and when it comes to big things in the video game industry you don’t get much bigger than the launch of a new system. Since the Wii U was announced, with its uniquely large controller with a built in touch screen, I’ve been eager to get my hands on the system and see how it performs in person. Having spent several hours... 

Handling the Wii U Hardware

Handling the Wii U Hardware
Having spent several hours playing the Wii U, I wanted to spend a little time talking about the hardware of Nintendo’s new home console, including the system itself, the Gamepad and the Pro Controller. Firstly, the system itself looks a lot like a horizontal Wii when shown from the front, but is a lot more rounded and is around twice as long (not measured, but a considerable amount longer). Both the black and white version were on display and... 

Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise Hands On Preview

Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise Hands On Preview
Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (known in North America as Rhythm Heaven Fever) is a Wii music rhythm game developed by Nintendo and TNX. The third in the Rhythm Heaven series, it comes out in Europe on July 6th. The game uses a clear and crisp 2D art style which makes the most of the Wii‘s graphical abilities. While the game may not have the resolution of games on an HD console, in my time playing the game it didn’t matter. What the...
