I first had the chance to go hands-on with Jump Stars way back in 2015. At the time, it was a fairly basic affair. It did however have a whole ton of potential. Now, in 2017, two whole years after I first clapped eyes on it, the development team at Jamit Games and their publishers, Curve Digital, are preparing the full launch of Jump Stars. I’ve been lucky enough to have had the chance to go hands-on with the game for the last few weeks, and from what has been played, the initial potential that hit me first time round is fast becoming a reality.

Tokyo 42 Hands-On Preview
Tokyo 42 was announced towards the back end of 2016 and immediately grabbed the attention of gamers with its unique and highly stylised aesthetic. Its isometric view of Tokyo and its rooftops really do make the game stand out from others available.
The game is all set to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 31st May and for many people, the aesthetics are enough to warrant the purchase of £15.99. But for those yet to decide, what else does it offer?

5 new additions arrive via Xbox One Backwards Compatibility – are they worth the return?
Whether the idea of dusting off that library of Xbox 360 games for a spin once more is for you or not, the fact that there are now almost 400 titles available to play through backwards compatibility is certainly impressive. Nevertheless, for many gamers, more is better and now we see five new titles made playable on Xbox One.
But are they worth heading back to once more, or should we stick with the abundance of new titles gracing the Xbox Store in recent weeks.

Destiny 2 Reveal Presentation – The Thoughts Of A Destiny Fan Boy!
As the reveal timer counted down on the Twitch channel, there were already 75,000 people watching. 75,000 people watching a clock counting from one hour. This should give you some idea of how anticipated this reveal of Destiny 2 was, and boy did Bungie bring their A game tonight. To put the number of people watching the countdown into some form of context, by the end of the stream, Twitch's own figures put the number of viewers at over 428,000. And I was one of those faceless masses. Somehow Bungie neglected to send me my personal invitation to the event, so I settled for watching online.

6 more titles drop in with Xbox One Backwards Compatibility – Are they worth the return?
April proved to be a fantastic month for backwards compatible arrivals, with some of the most requested Xbox 360 games finally being made playable on Xbox One, all through the power of emulation. A new month means more titles and this week sees the first of May's BC titles bringing a double whammy for one popular series amongst the masses this week. Are they worth taking a look at?
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.
This Site is part of the official Xbox Community Network, meaning the games we get to review come from the very highest source...Xbox themselves!
