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.

Being a small nameless child, you witness a neighbour up to some suspicious acts ... Read More »
Let's be honest, Curse of Osiris for Destiny 2 wasn't that great.  Mercury was beautiful and the raid lair was amazing but both of the new strikes are just repeats of the story missions and the story did nothing to really develop characters or really make you feel an real emotion on the security of Earth. With that though The Dawning is live and data miners have had a look through the update and we may have some good info on what the next expansion may bring us.  Let's also remember that these leaks are just speculation without any confirmation ...
