It's no surprise that Blizzard's Arena Shooter Overwatch was given the game of the year award in December last year. With millions of active players across all formats and developers dishing out constant updates to the game to keep things fresh, not to mention its still expensive, even second hand, Blizzard knows how to make great addictive games - just look at their other titles such as Warcraft, Diablo and Hearthstone (still waiting for a console release Blizzard!). According to TrueAchievements, Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition is coming at the end of the month and here's what you get ... Read More »

There are few games that try to do things differently, especially ones that succeed and become smash hits (Rocket League for example), but developers Team Reptile has touted Lethal League as a competitive projectile fighting game, which you can understand where they are coming from, but on the other hand, this plays and feels more like a table tennis/ dodgeball hybrid. In Lethal League, the aim of the game is to strike a ball towards your opponent(s) hoping to hit them before they have a chance to strike back. But with each hit, the speed of the ball increases making ... Read More »
It's about time a title like Jump Stars entered our midst. It's the first of its kind on Xbox One, but certainly not an Xbox first. Some of you may remember the classic original Xbox title Fuzion Frenzy? Or maybe its sequel on the Xbox 360? This is the nearest you will get to it on Xbox One, and this title sure is a blast. Set out in a wacky TV Show style, up to four players control little lovable blockheads jumping, pushing and dropping your way across a series of frantic mini-games to become the TV show champ and ...

Developer Rain Games' second game World To The West is set in the same universe as their previous game Teslagrad, offering some similar mechanics but experimenting with a whole different perspective, making it more of a 3D action adventure title as opposed to a 2D puzzle platformer. This title doesn't hold your hand, aside from the initial pop ups that display the buttons and what they do, but right from the moment you hit new game on that menu screen, the story kicks in and throws you straight into it, controlling the first of four characters you will play as - ...

Simulators seem to be all the 'rage' these days. From Farming sims to dating sims and from goat sims to firefighting sims, there's plenty of diversity to choose from, but who would have thought of developing a game where you actually insult real people from around the world? Isn't that just called 'The Internet'? But alas, one is certainly being released this spring for Xbox One and it looks wacky but funny - depending on if you're the giver or receiver of insults! Check out the trailer for You...Sir! The Insult Simulator below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGDTL0Riseg&feature=share Will you be picking up this ... Read More »
