EGX Rezzed: Alien: Isolation hands-on

Say what you like about the Ripley family, there’s no denying that they have a gene marked “tough as steel”. We saw Ellen Ripley press through the odds in three Alien movies (and her clone show the same streng...

EGX Rezzed: Interview with Danny Garfield, “Concursion”

Games have regularly mixed genres, but rarely has it been for more than brief steps into minigames – solving a puzzle, responding to a QTE and the like. And where game types meet, it is often with clearly defined sections – hav...

Just taking a quick break from adding to the EGX Rezzed articles (and there are more to come – it was a busy weekend!). However, it’s worth mentioning that tickets to Rezzed’s big brother, EGX London – f...
