Leipzig GC 2007: Quake Wars

Time was short at Activision on the day I popped over for a look at the new Quake II-themed Enemy Territory game, so I unfortunately didn't get as long as I'd hoped for with what was one of my most looked-forward-to games of the GC. What I ...

Leipzig GC 2007: The mysterious mystery of THEY

A game called THEY was teasing me for the entirety of the GC. It was one of the first games I made an appointment to see having recieved a press release weeks earlier about it, the last one I got to see over the course of the week, and the ...

Leipzig GC 2007: Far Cry 2

Around a week into my Leipzig coverage, and looking at my writing schedule I've still got a bunch more FPS to detail. It's a sign of the times my friends, and one I'm not entirely happy about. Somehow, this whole genre bandwagon thing never...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Crysis

You might have read Fronz's report of his play test of Crysis back in January. While he found the game to be trouser-troubling beautiful and solidly playable -- despite bugs -- he ultimately wasn't blown away by the overall experience. I ha...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Rayman Raving Rabbids 2

I like Rabbids. They do a lot of important work. In this world of mopey, emo, RPG heroes, violent, grizzled, downtrodden anti-heroes, earnest corporate mascots, and cute and cuddly cartoon critters, the Rabbids want nothing more from their ...

Leipzig GC 2007: Warhound

Remember when I said in my Dead Island preview that Techland could have another sleeper on their hands if things work out? Warhound is that game. Most of the journalists I talked to at Leipzig who went to Techland's booth went there for Dea...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Spore

Sometimes things just turn out of the best. Earlier this week I had a ninety-minute appointment over in Electronic Arts' press area, where they had a whole load of their upcoming games available for play-test or presentation. With the words...

Why is The Witcher so stupid looking? (Possibly NSFW video)

Okay, so seriously ... what the [intercourse] is this [fecal matter]? That's a cleaner example of the kind of thought that's been going through my head consistently during every minute of my watching this video. Apparently, this classes as ...

Leipzig GC 2007: Test driving the Wii Balance Board

I stepped up to the Wii Fit Balance Board feeling rather ambivalent about the whole thing. On the one hand, while I'm a big fan of what Nintendo is doing in taking games beyond being playthings and into the new realm of mainstream experienc...

Leipzig GC 2007: A New Beginning

I've been ranting about the need for a resurgence in point and click adventures for a good while now. The genre's been forsaken as unfashionable for far too long, and in this Wii and DS-dominated climate, there's absolutely no excuse for no...

Leipzig GC 2007: Dead Island

I've noticed over the years that I have three main reactions to new videogames I like. Firstly, I have the "serious" reaction, whereby I take on an expression of thoughtful reverence in the face of a something groundbreaking or ar...

Leipzig GC 2007: Tom Clancy's EndWar gameplay demo

Ubisoft's new RTS Tom Clancy's EndWar kicked up a fair amount of interest when it was announced. The early teasing incited a great deal of intrigue, and when the game was revealed to be an apocalyptic real time strategy game predominantly u...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hideo Kojima presents Metal Gear Solid 4

Working at Destructoid is brilliant. None of us will ever deny that. There are some days however, when you wake up that bit more excited and appreciative of you job than others. Days that start with the knowledge that you'll be encounterin...

Leipzig GC 2007: Sony Press Conference

Okay, so we've already heard from EA, but what of the company who many still feel has most to prove this generation? I was sitting in on Sony's Leipzig press conference and now, a bit later than planned due to the failings of hotel WiFi, he...

Leipzig GC 2007: EA Press Conference

Leipzig Games Convention 2007 has officially begun! First up this morning at 9:30 was EA's press conference, which I attended slightly dazed of head and achey of bones following the travel "adventures" of yesterday (More on that i...

Why do you think Yakuza is still not on PC despite its latest resurgence? Sega is no stranger to the platform and were long past the days when it was believed niche Japanese games didnt have an audience on why? I dont get
