Games to Watch Out for From EGX 2017 - Part 1

gamrFeed - 8 hours 25 min ago

It’s that time of year again, and like clockwork here are my games to watch out for from EGX 2017. These articles cover games that really piqued my interest while scouting the showfloor at this year's EGX in Birmingham, UK.

 

Off Grid 

 

It’s a shame that I played Off Grid in a crowded room, so I couldn't fully appreciate it. But what's clear is the amount of detail in the game, from the story to the gameplay mechanics shown off in the demo, is ludicrous. It's a short demo that has you infiltrating an office suite, using the tools in your open source glasses to see messages through walls (showing the locations of guards, for example) or hacking equipment around the office.

Off Grid is scheduled to release sometime next year. You can find out more about it via the game's official website here.

 

Jettomero

 

Jettomero is an awesome-looking and incredibly charming indie title that really stands out. You play as the titular Jettomero, a tall rocket man who explores a solar system looking to help the inhabitants of planets he lands on. The catch, which you’ll notice when you begin to wander around, is that he is incredibly unwieldy and also happens to crush everything in his path.

Our adorable hero's little cries of "sorry!" or "I didn’t mean to do that, I was only trying to help!" bellow out, quickly building up the game's sense of charm. At any moment you can hold down the right trigger to explode off into space, hunting down other planets to 'help'. The presentation alone drew me in, but the charm is what had me talking to friends about Jettomero the second I got home. 

Jettomero is already available to purchase via Steam.

 

Ava Airborne 

Ava Airborne is a remarkably simple but addictive iOS game that has you avoiding obstacles in the air, with the aim of travelling as far as possible through the map, competing against other players to get as far as possible. It reminded me of the infamous Flappy Wings, or the conceptually similar Alto Adventure, and it was interesting to discuss the design process and difficulties with a member of the development team.

These games don't appeal to everyone but I could certainly see Ava Airborne proving to be extremely popular; don’t be surprised if you see it featured on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV in the near future. Ava Airborne is slated to release this November. 


Sonic Forces 

I know, I know, yet another Sonic game. But the franchise could be in for a good run of form, following on from Sonic Mania's success last month. While Mania went to the series' retro roots, Forces builds on the mechanics introduced in Sonic Generations, combining that game's 3D fluidity with modern visuals. The customisation element feels gimmicky, but the gameplay itself had me feeling a glimmer of hope for what could be a good 3D Sonic game. Time will tell when Sonic Forces launches in November.

 

Aegis M


I’m a sucker for tower defence games. I feel I need to make that clear before introducing Aegis M, the lovechild of a committed developer who has been working on this title in his spare time for the last four years while at the same time holding down a full time job. Aegis M has you controlling a top-down character with its own gun, making your way across a battlefield, placing down turrets, or attacking enemies with your own guns and abilities should you so wish. For every enemy defeated, you’re given a coin, which in turn can be used to purchase ammo or purchase structures. 

If at this point you think you’ve heard it all before, the twist is that this can all be played in a multiplayer environment, and all manner of different co-op modes are available for the game. The developer even showed me at one point a Call of Duty-style zombies mode, where teams of players have to survive as long as possible against an endless armada of zombie enemies. 

Aegis M truly looks set to be an addictive game. You can find out more about it via the developer's website here.

WWE 2K18 PC Release Date Has Now Been Confirmed

Just Push Start - Mon, 09/25/2017 - 22:02
WWE 2K18 has now been announced for the PC, and it’s coming out much earlier than the past few video games that took months to be released. 2K Games announced that WWE 2K18 on PC will release alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions on October 17th, 2017. This is way earlier than when WWE 2K16 and WWE 2K17 came out on PC. The only thing PC gamers are missing out is the chance to own the game four days earlier. However, the content will stay the same. You still need to pre-order to get access to Kurt Angle plus the Deluxe Edition allows you to play as Batista and RVD. The only release date left to be announced is the Nintendo Switch version. That version is still scheduled to be out sometime in Fall 2017.
