This last week has flown by with all manner of Xbox news, reviews, opinions and videos hitting the web. Which were our favourites? Well, if you’ve been living in a cave for the last seven days we urge you to check out this lot asap.
If you’re a collector, or just need a new controller, Microsoft have got you covered.
Detailed this last week were the new Dusk Shadow and Copper Shadow wireless Xbox One controllers and without beating around the bush, they look absolutely stunning. Coming in two flavours, both with a lovely faded black gradient finish, these should go nicely with the likes of the Lunar White, the numerous military themes or indeed the blue Forza 6 controllers which should already be staples of your Xbox One controller collection.
We can’t ever ignore the free games and with the hump of the month well and truly passed, it’s time to now get involved with a couple of new titles.
In fact, both Lords of the Fallen and the unmistakable Borderlands should be downloaded – for free of course – without hesitation. The Games With Gold scheme has most certainly delivered a whole ton of decent games to those with a full Gold subscription but now, in March 2016, it’s delivering one of its strongest months yet and should be something all Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners are checking out.
Go grab em!
There are a number of Xbox accessories on the market with a whole load of those focusing on channeling the best sounds from our gaming sessions directly into our ear drums. Now though there’s another headset to get excited about – the LucidSound LS30 wireless gaming headset.
Coming in two varieties, with a black and silver version dropping alongside one including some glorious gold and white styling, the LS30 headset promises to work with Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and all manner of mobile devices. We’re obviously more than interested in the Xbox side of things and will hope to have a couple of articles including a full unboxing and review for you soon.
Keep an eye out for them.
Whether you plan on signing up to Team Plant or fancy going through the hellish initiation process for the Zombie squad, the chance to get involved in more garden warfare on Xbox One is seriously tempting.
After an initial game that continues to draw in the masses a couple of years after its release, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 really does need to deliver both more of the same and a shed load of new features at the same time. Thankfully it does both of those things really well and more than makes up for the full price that it commands.
Whether you’re a single player looking to blast some weeds, or have got a few online friends who are urging you to join the fight, Garden Warfare 2 brings smooth, fun, chaotic gameplay each and every time and you should be teaming up with the weird and wacky characters involved rather soon.
If you need convincing though, our review should ensure you get the wallet out and make a purchase.
We leave you this week with a review of a brand new Xbox One digital only game.
Think of Lemmings, and then reverse everything you see as 101 Ways To Die urges you to kill everything in front of you – all in the most gruesome way possible. Playing the part of the assistant to a mad scientist, Professor Splatunfuder, it is up to you to help the Prof create his recipe book – one that is filled with dastardly, brutal and highly stylish traps as he attempts to stop a number of Frankenstein-like monsters escape into the world.
If you’re in need of something to test your mind and don’t mind the trial and error approach that it brings, then 101 Ways To Die on Xbox One is quite possibly worth a look. Our full review tells you exactly why.
That’s it for this week, catch you again in another seven days or so!
