If you're anything like us here at Xbox One UK HQ then you'll love custom controllers, particularly when they offer something a little different. Hopefully, you'll agree with us that this latest one from Microsoft looks like a good'un. Sea of Thieves isn't out yet but is available for pre-order it. However, the limited edition controller has already been launched and we think it's pretty awesome. It's a translucent purple design with 'laser etched barnacles' for grip, with a golden right trigger (hidden pirate treasure), and the left control stick is in the form of a compass and a glow in the dark ...

Youtuber AlmightyDaq (who correctly predicted many of the details for Battlefield 1 months before EA revealed them- just in case you wonder why people are taking him seriously), claims to know that Battlefield: Bad Company 3 will be the next release. The source is apparently an insider with developer DICE. Whether that is the youtuber himself or he has had whispers from someone who is on the inside, we don't know but he certainly seems to know his stuff and is pretty convincing. EA had announced a Battlefield title for 2018 but there were no specific details given out and although there ... Read More »

It seems Microsoft has had good news as the Xbox One X has seen sales of 80,000 units in its first week on sale in the UK, according to figures released by GamesIndustry.biz today.  To put that into context, the PS4 Pro sold 50,000 units during its first week on sale last November - making the Xbox One X ahead. The Nintendo Switch sold comparable numbers to the Xbox One X. Although it is worth noting that both the Switch and PS4 Pro reportedly had stock issues on launch. Some reported delivery issues, mainly from Amazon although the majority seemed to have received their consoles ... Read More »
Ark: Survival Evolved fans can start preparing for Halloween a day early on Monday the 30th October. Survive the Ark announced in their Community Crunch 108 & Ark Digest 52, that the annual Fear Evolved event would once again return to Ark bringing along with it's signature longer nights and shorter days as well as the well known underground cave creatures such as bats and spiders temporarily spawning above ground. It hasn't been confirmed yet if WildCard will follow suit with the previous two Fear Evolved events and revive the hunt for the elusive DodoRex, DodoWyvern or the fear inducing army of ...

Xbox Insiders, it was announced today via Mike Ybarra's, Corporate Vice President of Xbox Program Management at Microsoft, Twitter Feed that Xbox Insiders would gain access to the long anticipated Game Gifting feature. Game gifting has been a highly requested feature from as early as the Xbox One's original release and now finally Alpha Ring Insiders will have this coveted ability to finally send a copy of their favourite game to their friend, regardless how far away they may live! https://twitter.com/XboxQwik/status/923923536070164480 Whilst it's thought the feature will be first rolled out throughout the different insider ring tiers before becoming publicly available, ...

If you believe the arcade machines of the era, the 1980's consisted of a few things: bad guys, ninjas, neon, and pastel coloured clothes. Ninja Shodown, from Bitmap Bureau makes no effort to dispel this myth, instead embracing it and squeezing it for all its worth. The result is a fast and furious arcade game that's really good fun and that knowingly nods to its audience at every opportunity. Its premise is daft - it knows, and it doesn't care. Right from the title screen, the game makes it clear that it knows exactly what it is - a homage ... Read More »

The game sees you selecting a mission (and once you've unlocked some more, a hero) and then ... Read More »

We haven't included Fuzion Frenzy or Crimson Skies on our list since we know those games are already confirmed to be making their way over to Xbox One, but they still deserve a mention. Without further ado, let's take a lot at our top five titles we'd like to see. 5. Burnout 3: Takedown The first title ... Read More »
