When Forza Horizon 3 came out, it was easily one of the best looking games on Xbox One.  With the powerhouse Xbox One X out, Microsoft has made a big push to get developers to enhance their current titles to take more advantage of the console.  Playground Games has come out now and released a patch for owners that is free to download that will give the title native 4K visuals.  After the patch however there have been some people saying that HDR is causing visuals to be much too dark.  Look for Playground Games to investigate this issue.

I'm a huge Destiny fan.  Let's be honest though.  The long term enjoyment Destiny 2 has been very mediocre.  We all though that Curse of Osiris would help remedy that but all it did was give us a short story, strikes that just reuse story missions, and it's only saving grace was a great raid addition.  The biggest pain though was that all the endgame content and events were locked behind a paywall so those who didn't purchase the DLC, really lost content. Bungie announced last week they were making that change to give seasonal content to all and as ... Read More »

Everybody likes a good scare. The thrilling feeling emotion of a jump scare without having your life actually at risk gets the blood flowing and causes the unique feeling for players. Dynamic Pixels has attempted to do just that with Hello Neighbor inviting players to be a small child being hunted down by a creepy neighbour that you've decided to break in the house of. However, with the look of a childrens cartoon and no real suspense build up, Hello Neighbor falls short of what it ultimately wants to achieve. Being a small nameless child, you witness a neighbour up to some suspicious acts ... Read More »
Let's be honest, Curse of Osiris for Destiny 2 wasn't that great.  Mercury was beautiful and the raid lair was amazing but both of the new strikes are just repeats of the story missions and the story did nothing to really develop characters or really make you feel an real emotion on the security of Earth. With that though The Dawning is live and data miners have had a look through the update and we may have some good info on what the next expansion may bring us.  Let's also remember that these leaks are just speculation without any confirmation ...

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has sold a ton in it's early access phase on Xbox One but has suffered from a ton of issues from not being optimized for the home console as frame rates dip even below 20 FPS at times.  This typically has only happened in the early moments of each game but still can hurt the overall experience. The good news is that the Xbox One X version performs slightly better, with improved textures and draw distances.  Microsoft previously reminded fans that Xbox Game Preview releases are a work-in-progress.  Microsoft had this to say about the issues players have ...

So let's face it, Bungie has messed up on the launch of Curse of Osiris for Destiny 2. It has been a general consensus with the player base that bungee has offered very little in this DLC and have locked too many casual things behind a paywall that were readily available in the first Destiny game as part of the regular experience. Outside of the amazing raid lair, there isn't much else outside of very little story and more repetitive gameplay. Bungie is now though seeing their errors and trying to fix them as best they can. Today Destiny 2 ... Read More »
