Torment: Tides of Numenera – Hands-on Preview
What have you been doing this last week? That’s very interesting… but let’s talk about me. You see, this week I was lucky enough to be invited down to the swanky west-end in London Town to meet the lead developer and the writer of a new RPG - before spending a couple of hours playing this huge game.

Hands-on at the Halo Wars 2 Preview Event
I recently had the pleasure of attending a hands-on Halo Wars 2 event in London. I arrived at a warehouse decked in neon lights, cut-outs of key characters and a huge cinematic-style backdrop with “Halo Wars 2” logos plastered everywhere in sight. It wasn’t long before I sat down at an Xbox One station (PCs were on the opposite side but my hand-eye coordination is poor at the best of times - I needed to have the familiar Xbox One controller in my hands if I were to be effective). Surrounded by fellow gaming enthusiasts, we all loaded into a campaign mission.

Micro Machines World Series – Will it succeed?
Micro Machines was a series of games based upon the collectible toy car range that launched in the 1980’s. The first game was released in 1991 and the series featured 4 main entries, plus a number of spin offs, the last of which released back in 2006. An iOS and Android release came last year but for many, the announcement that Micro Machines World Series is arriving on Xbox One, PS4 and PC will feel like the reboot they were so craving.
The question now though is will it succeed? The gaming landscape has changed completely in the 10 years since the last release, dominated by online gaming and alternative business models.

Gigantic Hands-on Preview
Some of you might be wondering what Gigantic is, and I would say a description of something massive. For those of you who aren't interested in measurements, I would say it is a game with fantastic potential.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard – What we want from Capcom’s biggest I.P.
So, we’re finally here - the start of the new year and one of the biggest releases is already just around the corner. But with Resident Evil 7 just a few short weeks away, a look back past the cryptic messages that have been sent our way via the internet, and of course the incredibly tense and fear mongering beginning hour demo, shows that a lot of the game’s secrets are still under wraps.
We may not have much to go on about what we can definitely expect from Capcom’s best-selling series this time around, but here’s some of the things we want to see from Resident Evil 7 biohazard.

Scalebound’s cancellation is a bad day for all Xbox One gamers – but what went wrong?
Scalebound, an action RPG developed by Platinum Games exclusively for the Xbox One has been cancelled. Rumours began swirling when Microsoft omitted mention of Scalebound in its Xbox Wire post which discussed the future of Xbox One. The rumours reached fever pitch yesterday when Kotaku reported that they had been in touch with Microsoft who simply replied that they’d have more information on Scalebound “soon”. The official news from Microsoft and Platinum Games came soon after. Should we have seen this coming? Why did this happen? What does this mean?

5 of the most surprising Xbox One games of 2016
Okay so 2017 may be here, but with so many games due out each year it can take a while before we finish the delights of the year before. After all, every game maintains that it will offer everything we want in a game and with so many failing to deliver it can more often than not end in disappointment anyway. Sometimes though the opposite happens, and whilst we sit watching a release come by, expecting it to be a bit pants, there will be millions of players out there enjoying a fine masterpiece right under our nose.

Were 2016’s free Xbox Games With Gold titles worth the bother?
Whilst it is great to have free games thrust our way each and every month, has the Xbox Games With Gold scheme delivered enough quality throughout 2016 to make it worthwhile?

Up Next – A look at the Xbox One and Xbox 360 games out in January 2017
History dictates that the early months of the year are not particularly great for eager gamers wanting to pick up and play the latest releases - and it would seem 2017 is no different. For January 2017 at least comes with just a few new additions to the Xbox One library, with two of the offerings already having been available as digital only titles in the past.
Having been Xbox gamers since 2002 when the original big black box hit the UK, taking in all the 360 years and now being overly excited for the One, we could never find a place that would only cover the interesting, exciting stuff from the world of Xbox. Hence, TheXboxHub was born.
Covering only the best in the latest news and reviews for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, we aim to be a one stop hub for all your Xbox needs, without all the useless guff that you really don’t want to know about.
