SSD Drive Announced for Xbox One

The trouble with the digital download era is lack of hard drive space. Throw in 20gb day one patches and the Games with Gold selection each month, and pretty soon your 1tb HD has just enough space on it to squeeze some saved game data and that’s about it. Presumably that’s why the tech-heads at Seagate have announced the Game Drive for Xbox SSD – a 512gb drive that’s built specifically for the console, and according to the company, is perfect for elite gamers. Oh, and it comes in Xbox’s classic black and green colouring. Check it out below. Boasting fast boot … Read More »

Venom Xbox One Twin Docking Station: Camo Edition Review

The time has come and gone thankfully when we had to keep buying new batteries for our controllers – we recently tested one charging solution from Venom – the Venom Rechargeable Battery Twin Pack – which offered charging while you play, thanks to Venom’s rechargeable battery pack and USB cable. The Twin Docking Station takes a different approach. Rather than charging on the fly the Docking Station charges your controllers while you’re not using them. And it does so pretty rapidly, too. Once you’ve inserted the Venom battery pack, which replaces both the batteries and the battery hatch cover on your … Read More »

Has the New Tomb Raider Game Just Leaked?

Has a random subway rider just spied the title of the next Tomb Raider game? The Tomb Raider reboots have been pretty successful for developer Crystal Dynamics, and publisher Square Enix, with both Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider both receiving rave reviews. So we wouldn’t be surprised to discover there’s a third adventure coming. And it’s possible that’s precisely what’s happening, a year on from the last game. According to a Reddit user, he was travelling on the subway, when he spotted someone working on a presentation for a new Tomb Raider game, titled… Shadow of the … Read More »

Titanfall 2 Devs Know You’re Having Issues (And They’re Working On Fixes Now)

Titanfall 2 hasn’t had the greatest start since it released last week – despite attracting rave reviews and critical acclaim, not to mention one of the tiniest day one patches we can remember, plus total lack of season pass. But the developers haven’t given up on the sales flop just yet! In a post on the official Titanfall forum, the game’s community manager addressed a number of issues faced by gamers, and assured them that the team are currently working on them now. Here’s what the guys over at the forum has to say… Known Issues: Invite Friends: Some players … Read More »

Titanfall 2 is a Titan Sales Fail

EA’s latest shooter has failed to take the UK charts by storm. That’s not, we suspect, because it’s a poor game – it’s actually a pretty decent FPS – but due to one of the strangest release date decisions we’ve seen in a while. Unsurprisingly, Battlefield 1 still dominates the charts, with a large portion of those sales going to PlayStation 4, while Titanfall 2 crawls in at number 4. The highest new entry was the remastered Skyrim, which took second place in the all-formats chart. But Titanfall 2 seems to have suffered from seriously poor timing when it comes … Read More »

Farming Simulator 17 Review

Farming Simulator 17 is the long awaited latest instalment of the long running franchise developed by GIANTS Software. Right from the start it is easy to see that it is the same Farming sim we all know and love, the same as Farming Sim 15, but much improved. For those that are used to playing the game (and for those that are not) it’s beneficial for you to take a tour of the tutorial, especially in the animal raising section because that’s where Farming Sim 17 differs from the last game. As usual, the tutorial is extensive, which enables beginners to quickly … Read More »
