Thought I’d give you a quick round-up of my first day (Thursday) at the Eurogamer Expo so please check out the gallery below.
A few highlights of the day were:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, I enjoyed this glossy hark back to the SNES days of adventuring through Hyrule, top down view with an added surprise or two.
Wolfenstein: The New Order from developer MachineGames, with BJ Blazkowicz blasting his way through hordes of bad guys, no motion sickness with this one…
The awesome Monkey Island 2: Le Chucks Revenge cover art on canvas by Steve Purcell… I really wanted to buy this… was it for sale?
and last but not least, the Replay Zone making another triumphant return. I managed to get some Tomb Raider (PS1) action going, Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive, and Goldeneye on the N64.
Low lights (is that really a thing?) were:
The food and drink prices, astronomical as usual, packed lunch for next time methinks.
Having a press pass, and then not being let into the press area… I expect this was just a breakdown in communication somewhere along the line but it was a bit embarrassing to stroll up expecting to sit down and write some stuff up and be told you can’t come in. The guy stopping me was pretty adamant he was right, however the girl on the desk didn’t seem to have any problems with me going in, I chose to believe her instead.
Thanks for looking 😀
Tomorrow I’ll be (hopefully) partaking in some Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD, Sonic Lost World, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and Batman: Arkham Origins. I’m also hoping I get to meet some more people from the world of twitter too!
