It’s a little over a week to wait before the general public can grab their living or dead hands on a copy of Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil VII, promising a ‘back-to-roots’ experience with horror and puzzles. As is usually the case when titles draw closer to release, review copies are handed out and unfortunately, some show lack of respect for the developers and/or publishers by releasing information, and more importantly spoilers, over the internet. The latter has hit the net by storm, with plenty of streams and videos uploaded that spoil the ending(s) amongst other things. Of course, here … Read More »

That’s right. You’ve read it correctly folks…At long last, a beloved favourite; Micro Machines World Series by Codemasters is getting resurrected on consoles according to the Xboxachievements website, so please only take this as speculation for the time, being until codemasters confirms its official release, however Xboxachievements have been known to be reliable sources. It looks as though it’s returning due to it’s success as a free-to-play title on iOS, released back in July of last year. At the time of writing, there only seems to be some promotional artwork and boxart, but if true, expect more details very soon. If basing … Read More »

GTA V is very rarely out of the top ten in the charts – but for the tenth time since its release, it’s hit the number one spot. According to GfK Chart Track, in the All Formats chart, Rockstar’s anarchic open-world actioner beat out, well, pretty much everything from Battlefield 1 to FIFA 17. It even managed to unseat reigning supremo Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Make of that what you will. Everything else in the charts was unsurprising, except, perhaps, Gears of War 4 holding its own against its multi-platform rivals. What’s more concerning is the total lack of … Read More »

After last week’s Halo Mega Bloks leak, 343 Industries – the developers behind the series – have hinted that a game aimed at younger audiences could be on the horizon. Mega Bloks (essentially a hybrid of Lego and Duplo) have previously made Halo-related toy sets, so it seems natural that they’d want to release a game around the same premise. And when footage found its way on to the internet last weekend, the response was overwhelming positive. In their weekly dev blog, 343’s community manager discussed ‘Project Haggar’, as it was codenamed, saying: Who knows, with so much positive support … Read More »

No more pressing the Guide button to go home, guys. A major new update is coming to Xbox Insiders, and it looks set to change the way you’ll reach the familiar Xbox Home Screen. One concerned fan was quick to notice that, in the coming update, changing the Guide button’s original function meant there could be issues in actually getting home on the console – so he did what anyone would: Jumped on Twitter and asked Mike Ybarra. And the Microsoft man confirmed that there would be a change in how Xboxers will be getting to the home screen… @MegavoltService … Read More »
