Review: Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One)

Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One)

The boys are back in town

Last year, we reviewed Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox 360 and walked away all kinds of impressed. We thought the game’s only real weakness - the only thing holding it back from a perfect score - was that it was a current-gen game with next-gen ambitions, which resulted in minor technical complications that could occasionally...

Review: Monopoly Plus (Xbox One)

Monopoly Plus (Xbox One)

This version Mayfair well.

When it comes to converting the ubiquitous property trading board game Monopoly from the living room table to digital platforms, things have not always gone well. Despite being released for every console, computer, and mobile device known to man, it’s probably safe to say that there hasn’t been a genuinely good and...

Review: Terraria (Xbox One)

Terraria (Xbox One)

Can you dig it?

Colourful 2D adventure/exploration/building game Terraria is already available on almost every system capable of displaying more than a handful of pixels, but developer Re-Logic have tried to ensure that there are no excuses for failing to pick up their Minecraft-like construction title. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a...

News: More Patching For Halo: The Master Chief Collection

More Patching For Halo: The Master Chief Collection

It's a finely knitted quilt, with many holes.

It looks like last week's grand patch for Halo: The Master Chief Collection was not the be all and end all. Today, a new patch rolls out, and a hefty 523MB one, at that. Fans were somewhat outraged at the day one 15GB update, supposedly supporting multiplayer, that didn't go so well. We then saw a notice...

Ubisoft Apologises For Assassin's Creed Unity Bugs, Offers Compensation

Written by Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto CEO Yannis...

Review: Assassin's Creed Rogue (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed Rogue (Xbox 360)

A cold, hard, cash grab?

Given most of Ubisoft's marketing budget went on Assassin's Creed Unity this year, you'd be forgiven if you thought Assassin's Creed Rogue was a cash grab or an afterthought when it was announced in early August. Though the latter may feel slightly true given some of the games presentation decisions, Rogue is able to bring a...

News: Microsoft Confirms Games With Gold for December

Microsoft Confirms Games With Gold for December

It's tricky.

Microsoft has confirmed the upcoming Games With Gold offerings for December, and even though a retail title is in the mix on Xbox One, we're pretty sure some will not be happy with it, as it scotches rumours that users were due to receive Ryse or Dead Rising 3 as their game for December. Might be worth checking your sources if you're in...

More ways for you to make orange goo!

Review: Costume Quest 2 (Xbox One)

Costume Quest 2 (Xbox One)

Trick or treat?

Four years ago, Double Fine delighted fans with the original Costume Quest; a charming RPG starring twins Wren and Reynold and their friends on a Halloween-themed adventure in their local neighbourhood and beyond. Costume Quest 2 starts where the first game finished (if you ignore the first game's DLC) with little explanation of who...

News: Ubisoft Confirms The Crew Will Launch Before Reviews Do

Ubisoft Confirms The Crew Will Launch Before Reviews Do

Uh-oh.

As we said a little while ago, we will try to keep you informed with regards to reviews being delayed past the point of a game's launch due to embargos. Well, this one isn't quite about embargos, but it's close enough. Ubisoft beat us to it this time with regards to The Crew. The game launches on December 2nd, and review copies and codes...

Space Combat Comes To Warframe In Latest Update on Xbox One

Some people call me a space cowboy

The free-to-play third-person-shooter-with-a-ninja-flavour Warframe, which we reviewed very positively continues to impress. In past updates we've seen the addition of the ferocious alien pig-dog-like Kubrow as companions, an overhaul of the in-game menu system, and a continuation of the main storyline in which the...

Xbox 360 Digital Deals Leak Ahead of Black Friday Zero-Hour

Well, possibly...

It seems that although Microsoft has a countdown in place for Xbox 360 Black Friday digital deals, a massive list of Xbox 360 games have been trimmed in price ahead of the completion of the countdown. Without further ado, we'll just cut into the list. Batman: Arkham City - $4.99 (75% off) Battleblock Theater - $7.49 (50%...
