I’m still ticked off about Scalebound being scrapped. It was one of the few exclusives I was really looking forward to! With a lack of exclusives, what’s the point of choosing Xbox One over PS4? I used to be a PC-only gamer, but with Halo 3 I got dragged into the world of console gaming purely because of LAN parties. I liked the game so much that I got myself a 360. I decided to check out another few exclusives like “Left 4 Dead”, “Dead Rising”, and “Gears of War”. I loved them! It was also fun being able to … Read More »

I’m a huge fan of the Rock Band series and when Rock Band 4 was announced for this generation of consoles, I was screaming like a schoolgirl. Almost all of the tracks for the previous games and DLC would be available and wouldn’t have to be repurchased – which amazed me since I’ve thrown around $600 towards DLC songs. I’m really not kidding either. I blindly purchased the full band kit and came home to find a key staple of the game missing – ONLINE MULTIPLAYER!  So yes, while the game actually launched on 6 October, 2015, it’s not until nearly a … Read More »

Welcome back to Xbox One UK’s regular reflection, where we take a look at the list of Xbox 360 titles that became backwards compatible in the last month and try to point out a couple of highlights. December didn’t offer much in the way of quantity, as the Backwards Compatibility team took some well earned time off over the Christmas period. Luckily, the quality of those games picked up the slack. First, the honourable mentions: Injustice: Gods Among Us The Batman vs Superman film might have been a little disappointing, but watching those two cornerstones of the DC Universe duke … Read More »

Christmas Day is tomorrow! Soon, you’ll be able to see what Santa has left for you underneath a tree decked in tinsel, lights and all other manners of gaudy nonsense. Me, I’ll be sat inside with a glass of Captain Morgan’s watching John McClane shoot Hans Gruber out of the window of Nakatomi Plaza. The Bates household has the best Yuletide traditions. Yippee Ki Yay, Father Christmas. Still, that magical box of wonders sat next to your TV, or Xbox One if you prefer, contains a whole manner of activities to help celebrate Christmas. Let’s take a look at some … Read More »

No, the top answer is not Microsoft. Stop asking… *ahem*. Being corporate in a videogame and in real life are two vastly differing experiences. One experience deals with unleashing a zombie virus on an unsuspecting American town and the other one is a videogame. But enough about my new vocation, let’s talk about some videogame corporate evil. With the CEO often being a maniacal despot with a scientific budget that’d make Apple, Microsoft and Google blush, the stage is set for some truly insane enterprises. Here are five on Xbox One. Tekken – Mishima Zaibatsu In any discussion regarding psychotic Chief … Read More »

Look, we get it. You’re one of the cool kids. You’ll drop something before it becomes uncool just in case anyone even hints that you, too, might be uncool. You got back into high-tops before anyone else, you decided it’s okay to not like fro-yo, and you were the first kid on the street to microwave your Furby. You’re a trendsetter. But, you know what’s not cool? What just makes you look like the petty, entitled, smug fool that you are? “Does anyone still play that…” whenever anyone mentions the game that you no longer play because you don’t want … Read More »

Welcome back to Xbox One UK’s regular reflection; where we take a look at the list of Xbox 360 titles that became backwards compatible in the last month, and try to point out a couple of highlights. October has been a fantastic month for triple-A Xbox One releases. The backwards compatibility program, however, hasn’t been quite so fortunate. That being said, it wasn’t all doom and gloom. First, the honourable mentions… Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed The title may be extremely long-winded, but this is the closest you’ll get to legally playing Mario Kart on your Xbox One. Messing … Read More »

What a time to be a gamer, two fantastic first person shooters launching within a couple of weeks of each other. Two first person shooters receiving high praise across the board. Two first person shooters giving two completely different styles of setting and gameplay. Two first person shooters….by the same publisher. I love this time of year, the ever-building presence of Christmas, dark cosy nights, crisp morning air and many of the years AAA titles bestowing themselves upon us. This year is no exception, with a jam-packed release schedule including usual suspects such as Fifa and (dare I say) Call … Read More »

Two weeks ago guardians welcomed back the Festival of the Lost to Destiny.  Festival of the Lost is fun live event created by Bungie for all to celebrate a Halloween like festival which guardians can wear masks of other characters while partaking in quests.  It’s a simple event but last year’s festival was a lot of fun giving players a reason to grind for cosmetic items.  Again this year the items are cosmetic but the event really failed in the eyes of the community.  Festival of the Lost this year is plagued with microtransactions while taking away reason to play … Read More »
