Our Time at EGX 2018
Once again we find ourselves at EGX. This year 3 members of the OP team went, and here are our thoughts:LEWISSo another year at EGX, and I still can't help but moan about the boring and uncreative art used at the entrance of EGX. A couple of shapes changed position and background patterns slightly changed up, but largely the same mundane and uninspiring signage. In no way does it get you excited for the event when you walk through what is essentially a large empty hall with nothing more than one large screen advertising a couple of the games at the
Our Time at EGX 2017
So here we are again, writing another article about another EGX event. Two members of the OP team went to EGX in 2017, and we have both individually written reviews of the event.Lewis When we arrived at the event, one of the first things that struck me was the lack of creativity in the art being used. I didn't feel hugely excited to be there, apart from the huge amount of people attending, I didn't feel like I was arriving at anything special. I remember in the early days of Eurogamer, I used to feel like I was attending something out of
Our Time at EGX 2016
As is now tradition for the members of Opium Pulses based in the UK, we made our way to EGX (Eurogamer Expo) in Birmingham, our press passes allowed us earlybird entry to all 4 days but we stuck to Thursday and Sunday. We arrived bleary-eyed in good time and were allowed to walk straight in. Of the two days, if you want peace and quiet, room to move around and better opportunity to secure interviews, Thursday is your day. If you like huge crowds, active tournaments and regular giveaways the weekend is the time to go.Anyway as much as we love
Our Time at EGX 2015
Today we're letting you know what all three of us thought of EGX (Eurogamer Expo) 2015. Starting with...CHRISI was at EGX this year for the full 4 days it was running. During this time I had the pleasure to show off Steam’s upcoming VR headset – the HTC Vive, to hundreds of extremely excited people.We had game developers, universities, representatives from Twitch, YouTube and EGX themselves all buzzing to try out the latest and what is commonly starting to become known as ‘The best’ VR experience currently around!It’s difficult to explain the immersion you get with Vive until you’ve tried it

A few more games inspired by metal that I think are worth mentioning (I'll try to keep this up to date with any suggestions)
Heavy Metal Machines - A nice combination of Micro Machines and Motor Rock with more metal!
Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.
Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods - Top-down twin-stick arcade shooter made by metalheads for metalheads.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - 90s style first-person shooter with a metal soundtrack and gothic style
BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre - You play as Satan's son in a twin-stick shooter with a metal soundtrack and nude demons.
Slain: Back From Hell - A heavy metal inspired arcade combat and puzzle platformer.
Valfaris - Indirect sequel to Slain, with tighter controls, prettier graphics and heavier soundtrack,
Butcher - Known by some as the 2D DOOM or by me as Soldat with a heavy metal skin.
Charlie Murder - Control a punk rock band in a beat 'em up RPG set in the zombie apocalypse!
Death Goat - If DOOM was a twin-stick shooter and allowed you to play an a wheelchair bound OAP.
Rock 'N' Roll Defense - A tower defense game that involves keeping unwanted idiots away from the rock show.
A Story of a Band - A quirky little band management simulation game.
Ubermosh Series - Twin-stick series that involve slicing bullets with swords in gun-filled cyberpunk mosh pits.
And for those interested in the game mentioned a few comments above
Karmaflow: The Rock Opera - A puzzle platformer with a cast voiced entirely by metal musicians.July 18, 2020

me gustan estas clases de juegos esta bueno el articuloJune 08, 2020
I mean I guess that's all the original Doom games ever were? Only with even less story!
But I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of the more modern Doom games, I think the fact they're so intense and demanding means you actually get mentally exhausted after just a few hours, I completed the original Doom just a few weeks ago and I didn't get that same fatigue. I pre-ordered Eternal and I still haven't completed it! But I tend to take my time with games and I'm perfectly okay with taking up to a few years to complete a game, so long as I get there eventually.
With Doom and Wolfenstein thriving with modern releases, I think I'd really like to see a new take on the Quake series.May 06, 2020
Not really a fan of the new Doom games ,they seem a bit repetitive ,go here ,shoot these ,go there ,shoot these though might just be me getting old.
I prefer story driven games these days.April 30, 2020
