I got the chance to have a play through a level of the upcoming Cerebros game, a, and this is a mouthful, First-Person shooting, combat-puzzle game.
Basically have you ever played the game Ikaruga? This is that but in First Person form, if a white enemy shoots you whilst you are in Light form, you take no damage, but will take damage from a black enemy, and vice versa.
You also get the ability to break black or white blocks as long as you are their opposite colour from them.
This gives a very different dynamic to the game as you try to dodge the mass amount of bullets coming at you, and make sure you are in the correct form when those bullets hit you.
The small amount I played seemed to be very good and I am looking forward to the final release of this game, as anything even slightly Ikaruga related gets my attention.
Custom controllers are slowly becoming a thing, with this generation of consoles possibly having the widest range available for them.
Custom controllers came to show off some of their best designs they have currently, for both Xbox One and Xbox Elite controllers.
Some of the more gaudy controllers like the purple glitter controller or the more plain and stylized such as the black or red controllers.
They are identical to normal controllers but just give them a fantastic look and really help showing off when your friends are around.
Katana from Creative
The higher end version of the KRATOS S5, the Katana brings a sound bar + subwoofer solution for your sound needs.
The KATANA coming in at a higher price point has the same wide collection of connectivity as the lower end KRATOS S5, with USB, Optical and Bluetooth audio being an option.
This time however the solution is a subwoofer + soundbar setup, the soundbar however has 4 speakers inbuilt, two up-firing midbass drivers with 2 “tweeters”, when coupled with the large subwoofer you get some wide sound reproduction.
However this time somehow, this speaker setup seemed either to be even louder than the previous and able to deliver more detail over such a loud event.
The same drivers are found here for RGB, however this time it is going along the full length of the sound bar, still no love for the subwoofer.
FADECASE were showing off some of their fantastic replica knives at the event, showing off their new “Elite” knives, which from what I could tell were just the same as their normal knives but sliiiightly bigger.
Which is cool.
They also had some new finishing’s on their karambit selection including the new Emerald and Ruby.
Holding some of these you really appreciate the fact that they are not just some knock off knives, these are solid reproductions with some really well applied skins to them, as demonstrated by the man using the M9 as a hammer and having no real dents or scratches afterwards.
These knives are some of the highest quality remakes and really deserve a look for anyone who is a fan of CSGO and want something pretty to show off to their friends.
Also they all cost a fraction of the ridiculous prices CSGO knives currently go for, actual insanity.
KRATOS S5 from Creative
Cratives new brand of PC speakers are out, and are improved with their new Aurora Reactive and some bright RGB lights within the speakers.
A 2:1 speaker set up with a nice Subwoofer and two smaller satellite speakers, even whilst having to deal with the loud nature of the event they were being shown at, easily managed to output a good amount of volume but some great detail also.
Some good compatibility available with both USB and Optical connectivity which makes it good not only just for PC you could easily attach these to your TV, consoles. It also comes with Bluetooth to easily add your phone or laptop to the speaker for ease of use.
Finally the RGB lights that are slowly but surely invading every form of devices, they are quite subdued and a nice addition to the whole speaker, with some great effects added when listening to music for nice effects.
Mario Odyssey was being shown off at the event and boy is the game looking amazing, I was trying NOT to get hyped for the games October release, but well I had to have a go at it, and let me tell you, standing in a 30minute line with mostly young kids and their parents, and you’re just standing their…probably more excited for Mario was pretty fun.
The demo being shown showed off some of Mario’s new abilities with some neat little puzzle room that revolved around…well spinning platforms that had to be placed in the right angle to continue with the level.
From what was shown the game looks amazing and plays extremely well with the game never really dropping below that 60fps frame rate regardless of where I looked.
This game felt like a sequel to Mario Sunshine, and whilst that is objectively the best Mario game, no arguments it is, this is very quickly shaping up to overtake that.
