The Gears of War franchise was one of the most important Xbox 360 franchises ever. You know a game is good when it’s used as an example for other games in its genre. Gears of War was the founder of the cover-based third person shooter and the badass heroes. It’s been nine years since we’ve played the original game but we’re very glad to see it return in this gorgeous Ultimate Edition.
ZombiU, once marketed as the most hardcore Wii U exclusive at launch, isn’t exclusive anymore. Three years after the release of the original, Ubisoft decided to bring their horror story to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. The original game used the Wii U GamePad a lot to create tension; so the most important question for this Zombi version is without a doubt: “Did the tension remained the same?” Well, not the same but it’s still scary as hell.
Skullgirls is a 2-D fighter that is beautifully and expertly hand drawn. Not only does it ooze style and looks beautiful, it’s an amazing homage to fighting games and the fighting games community that any member of this community will be sure to smile and laugh at. And to top it all off the game itself plays great and has some amazingly creative mechanics.
Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO recently got delayed and won’t release before 2016. It might sound as bad news but it’s actually good that the developers want more time for their project. During Gamescom 2015, we were able to play an alpha version of the game and there’s still a lot of work to be done.
The Bridge first released in 2013 and was a rather big success on Steam and Xbox 360. Since the indie puzzle game was that successful, the creators thought it was time to release the interesting game on Xbox One and other consoles as well. Never played it before? Be sure to check it out since this might be one of the most original puzzle games we’ve played.
You know you’re going to have a good time when you enter a small press room hosted by CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama, fully dressed up as a Nine Tails Sage State Naruto. This was exactly what happened to us during the special hands-off presentation of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. The cosplay was great but the game looked even better.
Mad Max went missing for years but this year he finally returned to our world. With the release of the new and successful movie, there’s no doubt about it; Mad Max still kicks ass. Warner Brothers is currently developing the Mad Max game and before your start worrying, there’s no real connection to the movie at all. The Mad Max game goes its own way but still needs some work in order to become as good as the movie.
Dark Souls, the famous franchise of Bandai Namco, gathered a lot of fans since it was released a couple of years ago. Dark Souls brought something back to the industry that was lost for years; true challenge. It looks like the new Dark Souls III, will continue on this path but brings in some needed innovations. We got our hands on it during Gamescom and were very pleased with the result.
Skylanders Supercharges is the newest entry in the popular toys-to-life franchise of Activision. This entry brings vehicles to the popular franchise and this changes the gameplay from action puzzler to racer. During Gamescom, we got our hands on those races and were surprised this isn’t released as a separate game.
