During Eurogamer I got the chance to sit and play the new Co-Operative Warhammer title called Warhammer End Times: Vermintide. It is currently nearing the end of its development at FatShark, a Sweden-based developer. I sat down with one of the developers and played through a segment of the game.
I was given the role of Witch Hunter, a short range brute equipped with a Blunderbuss and Great Hammer. Although I secretly wanted to play as the Waywatcher, an Elf Roguelike character who uses a bow and arrow. The level started with me being thrown right into the action; I was told to use the hammer in the close range skirmishes. I found myself having far more fun than I thought I [...]
During this years Eurogamer Expo I had the chance to sit and play Raging Justice, a nostalgic throwback to the days of side-scrolling beat em ups. You have to beat up everyone you see on the screen, using a variety of kicks, punches weapons and even a lawnmower.
The first thing I noticed was how well the game controlled; I had previously been somewhat sceptical about how the game played. This was largely in part to the 2D pre-rendered sprites and how this made the movement look, this was obviously an artistic choice, but it didn’t affect the game play at all. I got to grips with the controls fairly quickly; there’s been a conscious choice through development to [...]
This is probably one of the few big games I’ll preview at EGX as the queues are pretty bad. A three-hour wait to play the division? No thanks. I did however swallow my pride and wait in line for Just Cause 3, After a forty-five minute wait I was ushered into a small square area in which two Marketing & PR graduates shouted jokes at our group, whilst trying to sell us Just Cause 3. Rather than just let us play the game and you know, actually gage whether we like it. After a further twenty minutes of shouting and being forced to watch videos, we were finally allowed some actual Play time with Just Cause 3.
So right off the bat, the game world was completely open to me. I [...]

Mushroom 11 is the intriguing puzzle platformer developed by Untame Games. The Brooklyn-based developer has already won a bundle of awards from various outlets. I was invited play the title at Eurogamer Expo and write down how it made me feel on here. It made me feel happy, let’s get stuck in.
Forget what you think you know about Puzzle/Platformers, Mushroom 11 is unlike anything else you will have played. You control a small amorphous organism, but you also don’t. You are manipulating the air around the organism, pushing it out-of-the-way. I can only compare it to using the eraser on Microsoft Paint to make loads of squiggly lines. You control the organism through [...]
While at this years Eurogamer, I got the chance to talk with Andy Wafer of Pixel Toys. Andy recently presented at the Apple Special event, introducing the world to 3D touch and Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade.
APGNation: What is Warhammer: Freeblade?
Andy Wafer: Warhammer: Freeblade is a game in which you take control of a mech called the Imperial Knight. The Imperial Knights are a faction within the Warhammer universe, that are fairly new but have not yet been featured in a game. So this is the first time you are going to be able to take control of these huge destructive machines. The gameplay itself is very Action/RPG orientated, where you recreate large scales [...]
