About two weeks ago, I attended EGX 2015 at the NEC Birmingham, the biggest UK gaming event of the year. The venue was packed with games, gamers, and miscellaneous (I think I may have spotted a Deku Scrub in the crowd).
Check out our write-up of the even (as experienced on the Sunday) after the break!
EGX (formerly Eurogamer Expo) is the biggest gaming event in the United Kingdom which takes place every September, and we are happy to announce that we will be returning to EGX this year, though this time the event will take place at the NEC Birmingham. Attending EGX will allow us to try out some of the latest and upcoming games and more.
Some of the games that Nintendo will be showcasing this year are Super Mario Maker, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pokemon ORAS, Chibi-Robo Zip Lash, Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer, Triforce Heroes, Star Fox Zero, and Xenoblade Chronicles X!
I will be attending on Sunday 27th September from noon, so if you see me around, be sure to say hi and grab a few StreetPasses from me! Expect to see a write-up and some gameplay videos too after!
Well, we have worked hard (mostly) over the weekend for this and we are now ready to reveal… well, what we have been working on, obviously!
Anywho, we are happy to announce NintyTalk! NintyTalk is a brand new feature in which we will have a spontaneous discussion on recent Nintendo and other gaming news. As this is still very early days, so we may be a bit rusty (heck, we’re very rusty) but hopefully, the more we do, the more we should improve.
Now, in this instalment of NintyTalk, we’ll be discussing the NintyBuzz revival, Xenoblade X Mini-Direct, Smash Bros. DLC, Mario Kart DLC, Zelda Wii U Delay and Project Ukulele!
Please tell us what you think of this episode and how we could improve. See you next time!
It was an early Sunday morning, dew fresh on the ground and sleep encrusted upon my eyelids. There was no time to waste, as the final day of EGX lay ahead. Yes, we had the pleasure to attend one of the biggest gaming expos in the UK, full of various upcoming titles from many different developers for many different consoles, though of course, we mainly stayed in the Nintendo booth… scratch that, that was our home for the entire day!
Check out our full experience from the event after the break!
Why howdy there! It has definitely been a while since I have even touched the behind the scenes pages of NintyBuzz, and I greatly apologise for my absence. It has been quite a hectic few weeks for me starting my new course at the beginning of the month, especially with two assignments already being set. However now that things are cooling off a bit, I am happy to announce that I am ready to start becoming more active here. Unfortunately I won’t be able to meet the activity I used to have, though I am hoping to bring in a few new writers to help pick up the slack as well as offering differing viewpoints of many news stories and games.
What’s better to celebrate the return of activity than announcing that we will be attending EGX (formerly Eurogamer Expo) tomorrow, Sunday 28th September 2014. While at EGX, we will be sharing our experience of the upcoming titles from Nintendo and 3rd party developers such as Super Smash Bros for 3DS/WiiU, Splatoon, Yoshi’s Wooly World, Bayonetta 2, Sonic Boom and more! If you see us there, then feel free to give us a quick hello… I’ll be tweeting throughout the day, so use Twitter for all your NintyBuzz stalking needs.
Who else is attending? What are you all looking forward to? Perhaps you have already been this week? If so, what game did you enjoy the most? Tell us in the comments below!
