As Destiny winds down following the long metamorphosis into its final form ahead of the release of Destiny 2 in September, playing it has put me into a reflective mood. It feels like I’m saying goodbye to an old friend, one with whom I’ve had profound conversations and suffered crippling hangovers – one with whom I’ve debated and argued and occasionally fallen out, but one with whom I’ve always reconciled in the end. Now that friend is going away, and I’m going to miss it. I remember watching the E3 reveal and seeing the name Bungie attached to it and ... Read More »
Independent Developer Saber Interactive has just announced that it's officially licensed 2-on-2 basketball game NBA Playgrounds will be coming to Xbox One on the 9th May. This homage to the much revered NBA Jam lets you take to the court as both current superstars and legends such as Allen Iverson, LeBron James, Steph Curry and Shaquille O'Neal, (here's hoping for the inclusion of a Shaq-Fu shaped Easter Egg!!!). The original Shaq Fu NBA Playgrounds gameplay looks impressive, the Xbox One giving the series a polished feel without taking away from the arcade style and frenzied pace that made the original NBA Jam ...

It would appear that having looked at their back catalogue with teary-eyed nostalgia, Rockstar has decided to reboot its top-down viewpoint for the latest addition to Grand Theft Auto Online. The Original Tiny Racers brings with it seven new courses and allows for up to four players to compete to be first past the chequered flag. As you would expect from a title set in the GTA universe winning will take more than being quick around the corners. Rockets, bombs and other power-ups will be available to pick up during the race and will be vital in your quest to ... Read More »

It's that time of the month again. No not that time of the month, but the one where people start asking "What are next months free Games with Gold?". It would seem as though there is a leak, posted over on Xbox Austria's official Facebook page, however, at the time of writing, it appears to have been taken down, adding all the more, to it's credibility. If true, it looks as if it could be one of the best months we've had, if not the best this year. Check it out below: The title that stands out most in that ... Read More »
rs2_release_xbox_1703.170316-1901, or Xbox One Insider Preview build 15061, which is a lot easier to say, was released just two days after build 15058 was released to the Alpha ring. While it lacks any new features, they have hunted down and 'squished' a load of bugs that had been bugging (sorry, couldn't resist) the Xbox Insider community. Here are the bug fixes: Game DVR: Fixed an issue which would cause two notifications to pop (instead of one) when uploading a Game DVR clip or screenshot. Localization: Miscellaneous fixes to localized text and content. Audio: Fixed an issue which would sometimes cause ... Read More »
Sega was at SXSW on Thursday revealing some new information on their upcoming projects, along with some tidbits of Sonic Mania on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter page. So, bad news or good news first? Bad? Okay, you asked for it. Sonic Mania; a 2D Sonic platformer that I'm sure we were all looking forward to getting hand cramp from, has been delayed. By an entire season! The initial release date of spring 2017, has been pushed back to summer 2017. Maybe Sega themselves got too caught up in testing that they forgot to keep developing as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyXg9kAp4Vc The above video shows some gameplay from Sonic ...

Mass Effect: Andromeda is released next week, (23rd March) and due to some players being able to preload the game we know how big it is, and it's pretty big! Users on Twitter and Reddit have been reporting the file size as they begin to download the game, which comes in at 42.19GB. Not the biggest download, but with lots of other games now sporting  large file size it may be time to invest in a new external hard drive! Why not check out our External Hard Drive Review here? With a day One Update on the cards for us BioWare has their hands full, as ... Read More »
