We're big fans of LucidSound - we gave their first two headsets (the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset and the LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset) four-and-a-half stars out of five apiece. LucidSound have produced some of the best-sounding headsets we've ever tested, and we can't wait to get our hands on the brand new LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset to put it through its paces. We're expecting great things! And we're expecting great things later in 2017, too, when LucidSound starts to ship officially-licensed audio products for Xbox One and Xbox One S. We think this is great news - ... Read More »
In case you missed it, Forza Horizon 3 is Xbox One UK's 2016 Game Of The Year - selected from a shortlist of five (the others were Inside, Overwatch, DOOM and Titanfall 2). Thanks to everyone who voted - it's your enthusiasm and passion for gaming on Xbox One that keeps us going! To say thank you, we had £50 Xbox Live Credit to give away to one luck voter - so congratulations to Xbox fan Claire! "Thank you so much!" said Claire, when we got in touch to say she'd won. "All the games on the list were great, ... Read More »
That's it. The nominations have been made, the votes counted, and we can reveal our Game of the Year 2016. Before we do, it's worth looking at our five nominated games, and exploring why each deserved to be on the shortlist. Each is a winner in its own right, from our Indie Game Of The Year Inside, to the game that smashed the MOBA and FPS together to revitalise both genres, Overwatch. Take a look at our shortlist. DOOM A resurrection of the classic, DOOM set its stall out pretty early on - this is one of the fastest FPS games ... Read More »
Everybody loves free stuff. And free games? We love those even more. Let's take a look at the current list of free games on Xbox One. Of course, we’re not just talking about one or two free games, but FORTY ONE! If you are a brand new Xbox One owner, here's an instant game library that'll keep you entertained for hours without having to spend another penny. Even if you've had your console for a while, there's bound to be something on this list that catches your eye. Check out the full list below - there are a lot more games on this ... Read More »
It's time to choose our Game of the Year 2016. We've whittled down over 400 games to just 5 - and we want YOU to pick the overall winner. Every game on the list is a winner in its own right. Have a look at the list below - then pick your favourite! DOOM A resurrection of the classic, DOOM set its stall out pretty early on - this is one of the fastest FPS games we've ever played. It's not subtle, but it's loud, exciting and entertaining from start to finish. With pick up and play multiplayer that doesn't ... Read More »
We have to admit, we were pretty disappointed with FIFA Street. Not because it's a bad game - it isn't. It's a very good game. But from the title we were expecting to be playing with a squashed Coke can for a ball and piles of jumpers for goalposts. That's how we remember football in the street, anyway. EA Sports FIFA Street would be a strong favourite for joining the backwards compatibility list, we think. It's part of the annual update crew, so it's unlikely to steal focus (or sales) from FIFA 18, and EA are supporters of the initiative, with 17 games ...

Here's a story that those us is still gaming on our glorious but venerable 720p Pioneer Plasmas can't get that excited about (that will change when Santa corrects his error and delivers that 4K monster we just know someone gifted us), but we know there's a huge crowd out there that does care about such things. Resident Evil 7's producer, Masachika Kawata, speaking to GamingBolt, has confirmed the game will run at 60fps and 1080p on Xbox One, and will support HDR on Xbox One S. All jesting aside, we've seen the effect of the performance gap between Xbox One and PS4 ... Read More »
With recent news that you can drive a UNSC Warthog in Forza Horizon 3, we look back on some of our favourite - and most surprising - gaming crossovers. When we sat down to make our list, we realised there were more examples than we realised - everyone has a favourite franchise or genre and could think of half a dozen examples. And not just games invading other games. We all know what happens when games invade movies (the less said about Pixels, the better) but sometimes when it goes the other way, it can be brilliant. We've whittled our list ... Read More »
So, you've clearly been on the Nice List if that's a shiny new Xbox One S you've just unwrapped. But what are you going to do now? Well, here are five things you'll want to get started on whilst the rest of the family is sleeping off the turkey overdose and listening to Queenie. 1. Set it up Sounds a bit obvious, but you're going to want to set the thing up. Everything you'll need is in the box - even batteries for your wireless controller. All you'll need is a spare power socket to plug your console in to, and ... Read More »
