Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor Martyr is one of the latest games set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe being developed by Neocore Games. Having worked on titles like King Arthur and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing they seem like a good fit to be developing the action RPG that is Warhammer 40,000: inquisitor - Martyr. I was lucky enough to get to see an early build at Gamescom 2016 and get hands on with it as well.
Final Fantasy is by far one of the most successful series of video videos and has one of the largest fan bases around. At Gamescom 2016 I was lucky enough to get to sit down with Naoki Yoshida, the director of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and have a chat about the current state of the game, some design choices and what might be next for the game.
Back in 2013 developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital released a remake of the classic game Shadow Warrior, to positive reviews. Now in 2016 the two are back with Shadow Warrior 2. On display at Gamescom 2016 I got a chance to sit down and play for a good twenty minutes, so here are my thoughts.
I've always been a fan of the games that take a simple gameplay mechanic and apply it to a beautiful world. Lantern is one such game by developer Storm in a Teacup and at Gamescom 2016 I was able to get hands on with this beautiful little gem and experience something that honestly, I wasn't expecting.
At Gamescom last week, Focus Home Interactive held a number of closed press presentations for their upcoming release slate, in amongst those presentations was DONTNOD Entertainment's upcoming action RPG, Vampyr. Now, that 15 minute gameplay presentation is here for everyone to see.
One of the biggest focal points of Gamescom 2016 was none other than virtual reality. Now that the Oculus and HTC Vive have been out for some time and PlayStation VR is almost here it makes sense that the show was focused on selling and promoting VR to consumers. One of the many titles I got to try in VR at Gamescom 2016 last week was Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. The next instalment in the Serious Sam series by Croteam VR.
At Gamescom 2016 I found myself with a free moment to run around the show floor and get hands-on with some games. Out of all of the stands I was lucky enough to find that Titanfall 2's queues were pretty quiet and took the chance to jump in and play a game that I’m generally looking forward to.
This year's gamescom is officially over, and what a gamescom it was. This was our first time at the show and it was an absolute blast. This year's show saw over 345,000 visitors both consumers and trade, and has become the largest event for computer and video games at the Cologne fair grounds.
