Dinosaurs haven’t been as prevalent this generation in the video games industry. However, this is all about to change in 2018 with the announcement of Jurassic World Evolution coming to Xbox One and Windows 10.

The game is currently in development by Frontier Developments, the team behind Elite Dangerous. You will be able to ‘build your own Jurassic World, bioengineer new dinosaur … Read More »

The renaissance of the RPG genre in more of a retro fashion has gone from strength to strength over the last few years. This brings us to Moon Hunters by indie developers Kitfox Games, which first launched via Steam in 2016 and garnered somewhat of a comparison to the Diablo series, albeit a much more relaxed version. The game itself is a self proclaimed RPG mythology building game with what also seems to be the latest trend -procedurally generated levels. But does the moon shine bright? Or will you be left in an eclipse? The premise to Moon Hunters starts … Read More »

Four more Xbox 360 games are now playable on your Xbox One, as tweeted by Major Nelson. And as usual, it’s a mixed line up.

But then Nelson followed up with another tweet Deadliest Warrior, Disney Bolt and … Read More »

Ubisoft have announced that For Honor, a slash em’ up all out brawler will be free to play this coming weekend. Released back in February of this year, it could be noted that the title maybe didn’t reach the expectations that Ubisoft had set for the new IP. So what better ploy to get new players onboard? The free weekend also comes right before the games third season, which will no doubt entice some to make the full purchase. You can get your hands on the game from Thursday August 10th at 8am (BST) and you have right up until … Read More »
