Square Enix Vancouver Showcase

This past week we had the opportunity to head down to a local event put on by the PR team behind all Square Enix’s recent and upcoming releases. We only had a short time to play through everything (2 hours) but we went hands-on with as much as humanly possible!

Below are some shots of the event, along with thoughts (previews) of the titles that were available to us and we had the most time (and fun!) with:

Flame x Blaze (MOBA)

Nintendo Wii U Hands-on Impressions [CES 2012]

With the show floor now (finally) opened, the main event, at CES 2012, has begun. My first stop on the tour this morning was at a private showing for Nintendo, who was giving select members visiting the show the opportunity to go hands on with their newest toy, announced at last year’s E3, the Wii U.

While the games being demoed were noted as being little more than ‘concepts’ it was a great first opportunity to get an idea of the look and feel of the new console that Nintendo plans to unleash on their consumer base before the year’s end.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Chicago Fight Night Impressions [Hands-on Preview]

Something was amiss on the near Westside of Chicago last week. It was something so huge that people from all wakes of life congregated in an almost non-descript parking lot of a seemingly abandoned red industrial building.  Regular gamers were there, comic geeks were in attendance, a few guys who looked like they walked out of a Young Jeezy video were milling about and there were even folks dressed up in costumes. So what brought all these people, some of which were in line for 5 hours, together? It was one simple yet highly awesome thing: Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
