Play Expo 2016 – The DVDfever Review

For our last collection of pics, I really enjoyed Mao Mao from AsobiTech. The game is controlled by your hand, swishing back and forth, controlling your cat in the style of Space Harrier, while making a fist would cause your character to speed along! A short-range projector displays the game on the wall. There were prizes given out to those who were good at it… which didn’t include me 😉 Great fun, though.

Also check out the talk from AsobiTech below.

Below that, is Snake Pass, an indie title from Sumo Digital which I didn’t get to play, but it looked to have very fluid movement.

As always, check out the full Misc album here.

Red Bull were there with a 5G eSports event – qualifying rounds on the Saturday and then competing against online players on the Sunday. I had a go at Project CARS, and was thinking I was doing quite well when it told me I once got the fastest lap… but then as we got to the end, and others were getting up before me, and I saw I came 8th…. yep, I didn’t win 😉

Other games included Street Fighter V and Rocket League.

Guppy was a weird indie title where you control a fish, and one of a number of bizarre games, none of them the same. There was also a hand-foot co-ordination game along the lines of Tetris. I thought I was doing okay, but each time, it was quickly game over!

In addition to card games aplenty, there were some intriguing board games such as Brandub….

Videogame Carnival were back with their Giant Gameboys, the Fruitcade and much more…

(and I think I was spotted!)

And if you fancied a quick trip home (if only!) Bumblebee and Barricade were on hand to promote next year’s fifth installment in their movie franchise – Transformers: The Last Knight.

All there’s left to say is Roll on 2017! At the time of posting, the dates haven’t yet been confirmed, but expect Play Expo Blackpool around the early May Day weekend, Play Expo Glasgow around mid-June, and Play Expo Manchester back in early-to-mid October.
