Sunset Overdrive is Xbox One’s First Digital Pre-Order

You shouldn’t ever buy a console for just one game right? But then why is it that every time I see a trailer of Sunset Overdrive I start working out how I can possibly afford the console? The game looks to be ridiculously fun and definitely one of the highlights out of the upcoming games. Needless to say, I want it so badly. It also now has the honour of being the first game on Xbox One to b...

The Cole Train is back in the next Gears of War. WHOOO BABY!

He’s one of the coolest characters in the Gears of War franchise, well, my wife at the very least thinks so. Looks like he’s returning to the next instalment. Black Tusk Studios, the new developer, have been very quiet about anything Gears of War related, We were expecting something from E3, but we were left hanging.  Today on Twitter the Cole Train changed all that. The man who voices...

Is the Xbox One Changing Minds?

After all the hate the Xbox One got here last year, having a much delayed release, it’s understandable that many moved to the PS4 side of life. However, now with the console having a local launch date, with the Kinect free model, the price and of course now the bundle options, will things turn around? Has it changed your mind? It certainly has got me, and many others on the team thinking. The dela...

A new Afro Samurai is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One

It feels like light years ago that we last had the chance to dismember foes with our sword in Afro Samurai. The Japanese Anime series translated well to the gaming format as it came bundled with the unique Japanese art style and narrative. At the time it received a mixed response whereby some absolutely loved it and others did not quite pick up on all the hype. All we know is that it left a mark (...

Here is the PES 2015 teaser trailer

Over the last few years PES lost a bit of ground to the muscle that’s EA’s FIFA, but they’re at it again and launching another football game. Last year Konami skipped the current generation by releasing the game on last generation formats – PS3 and Xbox 360. Hopefully the jump to current generation will be good enough to capture the hearts of football fans around the world ...

No Man’s Sky is not exclusive to PS4

After the mouth-watering footage we all witnessed at the Sony E3 media briefing No Man’s Sky is very high up on everyone’s ‘must have’ list. Until now it’s not been clear whether Sony’s had made arrangements with the developers to make it exclusive to their format. Remember the ‘Sony’s <3 Indie’s’ campaign? After the emotional applause...

Sony “were dancing in the aisles” with Xbox One $499 announcement last year

Surprisingly it does not feel that long ago that Microsoft announced the price of the Xbox One at $499.  Sony announced their console at $100 cheaper later that day and the rest is history. What no one, outside of insiders, knows is that Sony all had their own celebrations behind the scenes when Microsoft announced that price. Unsurprisingly the Xbox One has dropped by $100, which is great for the...

What game pushed each console to its limits? (Part 4 of 5)

We all just about lose our heads when we receive bits of ‘next generation’ console news towards the end of a current console cycle. And for good reason, at that stage the previous generation strains under the pressure to keep up with the PC format (yes, I know), as that gradually grows and improves when it comes to hardware. Question is: What game pushed the various consoles to their l...
