Game Time

It’s Game time! Yes! But when is game time exactly for you? Most of us lead very busy lives and sometimes it can be a bit of a juggle to fit everything in.  From attending school, University/College, Working 9-5, nights, weekends, shift work, to looking after the kids, getting them to school and football practice etc.  When you think about it, gaming time can be quite precious, from going on for a small stint in a multiplayer like Destiny or Fortnight to really cranking in the hours for big campaigns like Gears of War, Mass Effect or Red Dead Redemption … Read More »

Life is Strange 2: More Than Just Choices

Episode one of long awaited, angsty teen drama Life is Strange 2 is finally here and it’s already got us fully emotionally engaged in the plight of the Diaz brothers as they embark on a cross-country road trip while on the run after witnessing their father being shot by a police officer.

To game and eat or not to game and eat

Everyone is different, brought up with different ethics, house rules, cleanliness and hygiene.  We all do things in our own way but when it comes to some things. we might be split. Now what we want to direct your thoughts and attentions to are: During a heavy gaming session with your friend/Co-pilot/Co-Gamer/Wing-man/person / Brother/Sister in Arms,  we will all get that little pang for munchies!

The second most recent poll over on the XboxoneUk Facebook page touched on a more deeper heart string.  Interrupting a war that … Read More »
