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! I mean like who doesn’t? Crisps, Peanuts, Pizza, Chips, Burgers, the odd kebab here and there. It’s all part of the gaming experience and the ingredients for a great night in! (Yes! I really cheesily … Read More »

Previously we had polled to see what E3 games our readers couldn’t wait to get their hands on and like us there was more than one on the list!  Some of us knew exactly which one and some of us couldn’t make up minds.  These sort of problems are welcomed and fun, eventuality would dictate that we will eventually get all the games on our hit list to play in one order or another.  All good so far. The second most recent poll over on the XboxoneUk Facebook page touched on a more deeper heart string.  Interrupting a war that … Read More »

So we had a poll over on the XboxOneUK facebook group page about what your next purchase will be on the back of E3. First of all thankyou for participating in the polls and for letting us know what your most excited for – have a look below to see how the poll finished: There are so many great games on the horizon (no pun intended) and its looking like its going to be a colossal year for overtime at work from the looks of it! The winner of the poll (In Poll Position…….) which was racing ahead (What?) with … Read More »

Wow! What an epic E3 showcase for Xbox. Our team of machines, sorry writers have been tirelessly working over the E3 period to bring you as much news as possible and cover as many announcements, titles, games and studio information as they could manage without starting a world wide coffee shortage. A round of applause for those unsung heroes of the XboxOne UK team (don’t worry if you clap quietly they can still hear it and appreciate it, or add #XBOUKHi5) The dust has settled, our Wows! Oohs! and Ahhhs! have subsided, we have breathed in, settled our minds, hearts … Read More »

During the run-up to its highly anticipated release, there was a lot of debate surrounding whether or not Dark Souls Remastered was, well, enough of a remaster to be worth players’ time. Now that the game has been released for almost a month now, and whilst there are still those with valid criticisms of the overall quality of the game, the verdict is overall pretty positive; it is still very much Dark Souls – and there’s not much wrong about that. Perhaps the best thing about traversing (and constantly dying) through the labyrinthian Lordran is the mass revival of the player base. … Read More »

Let’s face it, video games are expensive and take up a lot of our time, and with trivial things like work, family, friends, and general hygiene getting in the way, finding this time to sink into our pastime can be tricky. Likewise, a majority of AAA titles these days tend to abide to the mantra “if it’s not broke don’t fix it”, which, in turn, means we don’t see much innovation within the yearly release titles. All hope is not lost, though. Thanks to some incredibly inventive and pioneering game designers, we also have a large selection of indie titles … Read More »

Previously, Xbox One Uk featured a small piece talking about why playing “so bad they’re good” video games like Deadly Premonition can be a lot of fun, but that isn’t the only kind of badness that can be found within our game collections; there are also certain games that revel in moral badness, “sick” games, in other words. Rather than the badness of these games stemming from incompetence, film scholar I.Q Hunter has argued in his essay “Trash Horror and the Cult of the Bad Film” that this kind of badness is “equally defined by its grossness“. These films, he writes, … Read More »

There have been numerous reports/ complaints from customers of Grainger Games over the last couple of days, with speculation surrounding it could be going into administration soon. Many Twitter users are disgruntled over the fact that they’re pre-ordering games and not receiving them. Several replies from Grainger Games shows they’re cancelling and refunding a hell of a lot of orders: Hi, as requested I have cancelled this order for you and issued a full refund. Many thanks. — Grainger Games (@GraingerGames) March 20, 2018 Hi, I have cancelled your order and issued a full refund, please allow 3-5 working days … Read More »

Is there anything worse than the feeling of turning on our consoles to discover that the video game you’ve just bought is riddled with bugs, broken, or simply bad? We spend our hard-earned money on these games and expect to spend dozens of hours being immersed in their virtual worlds; so to have these hopes quashed are disappointing to say the least. There are some games, however, where their badness is a large part of their charm, and a reason why so many of them have generated a cult following amongst devote fans. When Deadly Premonition (which is now backwards compatible … Read More »
