Last month felt pretty disappointing when it came to Games with Gold line-up – although I’m never going to knock free games like Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. But it seems you guys are a lot happier with December’s offerings. This month, readers Daniel Weston and Connor Williams both giving the thumbs up, and Ryan Rigby raised a smile, saying: ‘Had to check I wasn’t turning on PS4 when I seen last two months.’ And adeljay6 summed up what a lot of you were thinking: ‘what a line up 😍😍’ Here’s what you’ve been saying about the games… The One … Read More »

Telltale recently unveiled the title of their latest Walking Dead game, and you’ll be able to get your first look at the upcoming Game Awards. Details about The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, the fourth undead choose-your-own-adventure from the studio, are scant, save for a tweet that asks simply: ‘How far will you go to protect your family?’ How far will you go to protect your family?#TheWalkingDead: A New Frontier premieres December 20, 2016. pic.twitter.com/23HrgCztUf — Telltale Games (@telltalegames) November 22, 2016 What a hook. That questions plays on the more recognisable aspects of the hit comic book and TV series: A drama … Read More »

After three weeks clinging to the top spot, the latest instalment of Call of Duty is no longer number one in the UK’s all formats chart. Publisher Activision won’t be happy with the news that their much-maligned Call of Duty isn’t hitting the record highs of previous instalments. Infinity Ward’s latest shooter dropped down to number two, despite generous Black Friday deals – while EA’s Fifa 17 nabbed the gold this week. Not a bad week for EA overall, as it goes, with their military shooter Battlefield 1 still showing strong sales almost a month after release. Their other FPS, … Read More »

It was just a matter of time – now for the six people who bought ReCore, prepare to for a HDR update. The announcement came – where else? – on Twitter, where both Microsoft Studios’ Shannon Loftis and Xbox’s Mike Ybarra both confirmed that the game will get a graphical upgrade when played on Xbox One S. ReCore with HDR? Yes, it's coming. https://t.co/Ku07ZBj3MD — Mike Ybarra 💎 (@XboxQwik) November 28, 2016 HDR – high dynamic range – gives greater colour and contrast to images, essentially making them a whole lot richer and pleasing on the eye. The downside? You’ll … Read More »

Attention commanders – if you’ve been eagerly awaiting Mass Effect, prepare yourselves: We now know when to expect our first glimpse at the gameplay. Mass Effect: Andromeda is, by and large, still an unknown entity. We know that it features a different protagonist to the original trilogy’s Shepard, and that we can look forward to some intergalactic excursions in a world set 600 years after the original Mass Effect. That’s not much to go on, and Bioware are staying fairly tight-lipped. But what we do know is that we’ll be seeing gameplay for the very first time on December 1st. … Read More »

It won’t be long before we find out what Microsoft’s brewing up for December’s Games with Gold – in fact, it seems to get early every month. It’s a tricky ol’ month for GwG, occurring just after the Black Friday sales, but we’d hope that the X-bods in Redmond announce the titles before then, you know, so we don’t blow pay-day’s cash on games that become free days later. We’d like to hear what you guys want to see drop… What you guys are looking out for with December’s Games with Gold. What games are you craving? What games would top … Read More »

It was always going to happen, wasn’t it? Because it’s Battlefield 1. EA and DICE’s WWI shooter has been declared as the best selling video game of October – that’s not bad going, considering the game dropped on October 21st. Here’s how the October charts look – see anything surprising? Battlefield 1 Mafia 3 Gears of War 4 FIFA 17 NBA 2K17 The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim WWE 2K17 Civilization 6 Titanfall 2 Madden NFL 17 These don’t include digital sales, but check out Xbox/W10 exclusive Gears of War 4 hitting such a high point in the charts, and beating … Read More »

What could it mean? The official Xbox UK Twitter today changed their cover photo and profile pic to a familiar, green start menu and original Xbox logo. Alongside that, they also tweeted out an invitation to join them on November 15th to celebrate 15 years in the console biz. Join us on November 15th as we celebrate #15YearsofXbox 💚🎮 pic.twitter.com/oT6HKEKEP7 — Xbox UK (@xboxuk) November 14, 2016 There’s no word yet on precisely what sort of celebrations to expect, although given the prominence of the Original Xbox, rather than the Xbox brand as a legacy, fans are already assuming one … Read More »

Survival sim Ark: Survival Evolved is to get a serious content update soon, developer Studio Wildcard announced today. They’re calling it the TEK Tier, and the update is being pitched as endgame content that will reward players who really put the work in. Rewarded with what? Outlandishly cool sci-fi armour, weapons, gear and structures – which is literally a world away from the dinosaur-based survival in the main game at present. According to the developers: The TEK Tier will put players in power armor granting them advanced abilities, and add powerful TEK saddles with mounted energy weapons to the capabilities … Read More »
