I very much enjoyed X-Morph Defense when the base game arrived. I loved the addictive and relentless gameplay, and the use of mixing good old fashioned fly and gun gameplay, with some very detailed, but not overly complicated, tower defense skill systems. Most of all though, I loved being able to play as the invading aliens who were all out to take down the pesky humans with their inferior weapons and tactics. With them sending out hordes of army and airforce fighters, trying to kill the glorious invaders without success, it was all a bit good, if only because as the super race we had the chance to control all and live long and prosper. But that was all in the past, and I’ll calm down now in order to tell you all about the new DLC - European Assault.
The developers over at Playniac have devised an idea of creating a card battling game without all the usual hassles they bring; mainly removing the time-consuming process of customising a deck and the lack of any card expansions needing to be purchased. That should, in effect, leave Insane Robots with only the best parts of any card-based strategic experience, and with it due to release on 13th July for Xbox One, I’ve been getting stuck into an early build of the game to find out what can be expected.

With that in mind, we’re back with another achievement focused article, this one centred on 8 of the easiest achievements from the Xbox One games released in June 2018.

We also discuss whether we really care about cross-play on consoles, and if cross-play is really something companies should feel obligated to provide. Compared to locking the Epic account for PS4 Fortnite players, is cross-play really that big of a deal?
