Vic B’Stard’s state of the EB Expo: day one over.

One Down, two to go!

A late invite to see Master Chief awaken from his slumber at 8am this morning meant that it was a rather long day for me.

Early this morning I joined a throng of representatives of the gaming press to witness a rather petite Master Chief step out of a cardboard “cryo tube”. The 3/4 scale Master Chief posed as dry ice was hastily pumped out by a chap behind a black velvet curtain. After wowing the gaming press mini-Master Chief stepped outside, into the gaze of the assembled great unwashed, to rapturous applause. It was time for the 2012 EB Expo.

Off to the EB Games Expo

Not long Now!

An early start for me tomorrow. My plans of a leisurely train journey over to Sydney’s Olympic Park for the EB Games Expo have been thwarted by an email sent to me earlier today suggesting that I may want to turn up a little earlier.

I’ll let you know what it was that got me out of bed a hour earlier and how I got on, later.

The EB Games Expo promises to the be Australia’s biggest gaming event ever, with scores of game publishers and developers from all over the world in attendance. I’ve already had a sneak peek at some of the titles on show, but I’m looking forward to taking a look at the likes of Halo 4 and the upcoming Tomb Raider game!

I’ll be a late one as well, but hopefully I’ll be back on here soon to share the experience. Continue reading Off to the EB Games Expo

Vic B’Stard’s week in review: miCoach, chick-flicks, Titanic 3D, PES 2012, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Assassin’s Creed 3!

Busy week!

What a week it has been. After a few month unpacking as sorting out things Sydney-side, I’m back into games and other geekery. I’ve been reviewing, getting exclusive game hands-on, watching movies and getting excited about the upcoming EB Games Expo in Sydney.

For starters I turned in my review for adidas’ miCoach. A title that is the bane of spellcheckers, everywhere. It’s more Kinect fodder, which means more arm waving, pseudo-fittness, training.

New site demanding release of imprisioned ARMA 3 Devs

Free the Bohemia two!

Apart from when I wade into the video game violence debate, I don’t really get the chance to go all political and get upset when writing about games. 

I’ve been following the plight of two employees of game developer, Bohemia Interactive. The two may or may not have been doing a bit of field research for the upcoming ARMA 3 game whilst on holiday in the Mediterranean. Continue reading New site demanding release of imprisioned ARMA 3 Devs

EB Games Expo Sydney Showground 5th-7th October- what to expect

I’m there!

I’m pretty excited about the EB Games Expo next month. It has been quite a few years since I’ve been to anything as massive st this show is going to be. Back in the day I was a regular at the trade-only European Computer Trade Show (ECTS), but that is going to look like a farmer’s market compared to what EB Game have is store for us.
