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!

The Worst Simpsons Video Games

One of the biggest television shows since television began is that funny yellow family we all know and love, The Simpsons. They have just recently been renewed for 2 new seasons taking it up to season 32. Through all the seasons we have had a multitude of merch that stems from alarm clocks, soaps (on a rope sometimes), figures, foods, drinks, doormats and even actual real life Duff beer!

Not all of it was good however, especially in the interactive form! Join me on a journey as we go through The Worst Simpson Video Games!

videogameinhd - Euro Truck Simulator

I don’t think anyone’s booted up Euro Truck Sim for the first time and not made a huge mistake that led to the infrastructure of a small shipping port shutting down. It turns out that the line between ‘everythings fine’ and ‘potential economic collapse’ is about 3 inches between a local’s car and a lorry driver with 30 minutes experience (most of which was spent not stopping fast enough for red lights and driving 56mph in a 30mph zone).

Matt Dobbie's Introductory Article: Part 2

In part 1 of my introductory pair of articles, I covered my 5 favourite albums and TV shows. Here in part 2, I’m going to be covering some of my favourite video games and movies, but this time it’ll be a little bit different. Instead of writing up my ‘Top 5s’ as it were, I’ll instead be focusing on 5 video games and movies that have had the most impact on me. Sure, you’ll still be getting to know my favourites from both categories, but this time ranking isn’t going to factor in, because honestly my feelings are a lot less definitive in these areas. With that out of the way, we’ll begin with 5 of my favourite video games.
