Speaking to Game Informer, general manager of Microsoft Studios Shannon Loftis went into detail regarding the delay, stating that they were hard at work on the Campaign mode after focusing on the multiplayer Sandbox: "It’s actually the campaign that we’re doubling down on now. We’ve got internal play sessions every week for Crackdown Online. We’re starting now to get the campaign in. Building these open world games is both ... Read More »
Big Corporations are running Mars with an iron fist. Water is the most valuable commodity on the planet, contact with Earth is considered to be the stuff of ancient history, and a shadowy cabal of space wizards- sorry, no… Technomancers - are trying to keep the peace. As new recruit Zachariah Mancer, you’re tasked with uniting a ragtag team against evil. Largely through sloppy combat and insipid dialogue trees. Combat in The Technomancer relies heavily on a dodge/parry into a counterattack system seen in plenty of games since the Arkham series, and is universal across the three playable classes. You can ...

The original big bad is making his return... and he's bowing down to no one. Iron Galaxy have finally confirmed that the eighth character joining the Season 3 cast of Killer Instinct is the final boss of the first game, Eyedol. A two headed, troll-like barbarian, Eyedol will be available for Season 3 Ultra Edition owners on July 22nd, and for Combo Breaker owners on July 29th. The trailer below showcases the newer look for Eyedol. The head split down the middle look is really working for him, and his extreme size is sure to overwhelm his opponents, including the ...

Seems like 2K have realised what the best part of WWE programming is right now, and decided to give fans something to accommodate that. The upcoming WWE 2K17 will be releasing with a special NXT Collector's Edition, and boy oh boy, it's a good collection. Firstly, you'll get early access to three "NXT" superstars... Apollo Crews is technically a main roster guy though, but we'll ignore that. Also included are the dominant Nia Jax, and the King of Strong Style himself, Mr Shinsuke Nakamura. Not only that, you also get access to 50% more "points" during the NXT portion of ... Read More »

Welcome back to Xbox One UK's regular reflection; where we take a look at the list of Xbox 360 titles that became backwards compatible in the last month, and try to point out a couple of highlights. While June might have lacked a certain star power when compared to May's CoD: Black Ops and the recently added Red Dead Redemption for July, it certainly wasn't a dull month. Especially if you like Valve. Let’s take a quick look. Honourable Mentions Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara - More of a personal choice here, due to my love for beat ‘em ... Read More »
