Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop Review

Vault-Tec Workshop is the latest DLC for Fallout 4, and as the title suggests this one is again based around ‘building and crafting’. This is more of an add-on than fully-fledged DLC, and the price reflects that. This time around you won’t be augmenting your standard settlement or building murderous robots; instead, Vault Tec Workshop gives you the opportunity to manage your very own Vault. Much like in Wasteland Workshop and Contraptions Workshop, this DLC is all about building and crafting. Your task is to build a new home for some of the wasteland’s settlers – but with a slight twist thrown … Read More »

Xbox One Support | Turn Cortana on and off

Cortana’s great. We love Cortana. Whether she’s helping out the Chief of telling me that I’ll need an umbrella tomorrow, she’s one useful AI. Her voice recognition skills (and general ability to tell us poetry) are very much improved over the standard Xbox One voice controls. But… she’s not quite as snappy as we’d like when it comes to grabbing that screenshot or recording that perfect headshot, for example. If you’d like to turn Cortana off – which will revert your Xbox to regular voice commands – here’s how: Double tap the Xbox Guide button on your controller to bring up the … Read More »

Xbox One Support | Unhiding items from Ready to Install

If your Ready to Install list is becoming a little unwieldy, it’s a simple matter to hide items – for example, Beta clients that are long past their sell-by, or perhaps duplicate entries (Rare Replay duplicated quite a few for us). To hide an item, just highlight it, hit the Menu button, and select Hide from list. There will be times, though, where you’ll want to show everything that’s been hidden – and to do so is just a three-fingered death-grip away. To unhide, from anywhere in the list grab your controller, hold down both bumpers (LR and RB) and … Read More »

Halo 5 To Get New Forge Maps Added

One of the things that Halo fans really love is the forge mode. It is always interesting to see what comes up when map creation is taken out of the hands of the developers. But there is a catch, this freedom can lead to all sorts of catastrophes. For this reason 343 Industries are very selective as to which maps it adds to its playlists, and lets be honest, this is a good thing. But recently 343 Industries mentioned that they will be adding a new map to their Slayer playlists at the start of the August season. This map … Read More »

New Doom Game Is Something You’d Never Expect!

When gamers talk about Doom and its long history, many things come to mind.  I, or example think of the start of a revolution and the FPS benchmark of the time.  But I never thought I would associate Doom with board games. That’s right; developer Fantasy Fight Games has taken of the task of recreating the Doom universe as a board game.  Fantasy Fight Games describes the game as a “completely redesigned tactical combat experience” that is based on this year’s Doom developed by id Software and published by Bethesda. Fantasy Fight Games also elaborated on their new board game concept: “Glory Kill your … Read More »

N64 Emulator appears as Universal Windows App on Win10 store

Universal Windows Apps are coming to Xbox as part of the summer update programme, which – alongside the Windows 10 Anniversary Update – will bring a whole host of new features to Xbox One. The Windows 10 Store hasn’t – yet – succumbed to the tidal wave of shoddy and fake apps that you might find in, for example, another company’s Play store but there are certainly a few oddities that you might be surprised to find in a Microsoft-curated store front. One of these is Win64e10 – a Nintendo 64 emulator that runs on Windows 10 PCs. Of course, the whole area … Read More »
