The Best of EGX REZZED 2019

Recently, Neale, friend of the site Joey Chilton, and I, were lucky enough to go to this years edition of EGX REZZED at the Tobacco Dock, London. For those not aware, EGX is the name of a long running video game convention that takes place annually, and REZZED is a spinoff dedicated purely to indie games. Whilst this may not seem like something to take note of, the key difference is that developers here appear to take on the feedback that you have about their games as you play them. It’s refreshing to play some hidden gem and say an off-hand comment, then see them write it down because they obviously want to make the best game they can. Although Microsoft, Nintendo & Sony were there, the emphasis was on independently made video games, and here are some of the best ones I happened to see at EGX REZZED 2019.

videogameinhd - Devil May Cry 2

I’ve been playing through the Devil May Cry series recently - I've been meaning to do it for years but with the release of DMC5 I finally decided it was time to get round to it. I really enjoyed the first game, and it felt great to finally finish the whole thing after never getting that far when I was just a little teeny tiny baby boy.

DMC2 on the other hand just completely drained me for some reason. The reality is it’s not a bad game. There’s a bit more variety in combat (if you really wanted to put in more effort than necessary) and the environments have a little more flavour, but the whole thing is so tedious and underwhelming. And they still didn’t fix the camera issues from the first game. I’d heard a lot of negative stuff about DMC2 prior to playing it, but I figured I had to see it to believe it.

3 hours 40 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. I could’ve watched Beetlejuice two and a half times in that span. That’s it, that’s my review, don’t play DMC2, just go watch Beetlejuice at least twice.

The Best Simpsons Video Games

Hello once again, dear reader. Last time we looked at the “Worst Video Games featuring The Simpsons”. We saw shocking skateboarding, a questionable beanstalk and God-awful wrestling. It wasn't all bad, however - for every bad mobile game there could possibly be a good mobile game, it’s not out of the realms of possibility!

So join me as we take a look at some of The Best Simpson Video Games!
