Four new arrivals hit Xbox One Backwards Compatibility – Are they worth the return?
Today adds more value to the Xbox Backward Compatible scheme, with four new arrivals making their way to Xbox One. But whilst we’ve seen our fair share of titles arriving on the program, not all have been the triple-A blockbusters that fans have craved the return of. So, with that in mind, here’s our thoughts on the latest backwards compatibility titles and if they are worth the return.

Are the free Xbox Games With Gold titles for March 2017 any good?
A new month is on the horizon and that means four new free Xbox games will soon be available to download - at least if you are the proud holder of a valid Xbox Live Gold membership. But after a fairly solid couple of recent offerings being sent our way, do the free Xbox Games With Gold titles for March 2017 deliver the goods?

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed Beta Impressions – Was it any good?
Ubisoft have been big on open-world games in recent years and 2017 looks to be no different with the arrival of Ghost Recon Wildlands just around the corner. But with Ghost Recon jumping into new territory for the series with an open-world approach this time round, will the same magic that was brought into the series with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier be retained, or is this the start of a completely new direction for the series?

5 of the best Xbox One games to make (or break) your Valentine’s Day
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but its nearly that time of year again. The time where young couples have a romantic date at their local McDonald's, staring longingly at each other over a McFlurry, whilst old couples, typically sick of the sight of each other, are forced to make an effort on this special day. Yes that’s right it’s Valentine’s Day!
But don’t go running to the nearest supermarket for a card just yet, because here are TheXboxHub’s Top 5 games for Valentine’s Day to get you back in the good books:

Is it worth heading back to Liberty City and GTA IV via Xbox One Backwards Compatibility?
Sure, there’s been tons of games added since the introduction of backwards compatibility, and with over 300 titles now available, you can only applaud the effort put in by the team over at Xbox, especially as some of those titles now include some of the best games of last generation, but there’s still a big portion of our favourite titles that are yet to arrive.
As of now, however, some of those cries for another top title were answered with the arrival of Grand Theft Auto IV and its accompanying DLC, Episodes from Liberty City. But whilst it’s nice to see another top title make its way to Xbox One via backwards compatibility, is it really worth returning to Liberty City for another [...]

10 things (or possibly slightly less) that I’d like to see in Destiny 2
Destiny is great, but with my three guardians at 400, 399 and 399 light respectively (Titan being the highest because, well, Titan Master Race) my thoughts are turning to Destiny 2, and what Bungie can do to make the transition as easy as possible for me. I've come up with a few things I'd like to see, and that I think would make the game better.

9 games we’d love to see given away for free with Xbox Games With Gold
The Xbox Live Gold subscription brings a great service. Sure, Live itself has its outages from time to time, but for the most part it enables us to play our games online against others from around the world, talk to our friends whilst doing so, and of course it gives us a bunch of new games every month to play and keep at no extra cost. One thing players often make their opinions known about however, is the quality of the games given away with the Xbox Games With Gold scheme; whilst each year may bring us one or two of the best blockbusters, a vast amount of what is offered leads to disappointment from the community.
Regardless of whether you’re of the opinion that we should all [...]

Why Dead Rising 4 has been crying out for the new difficulty modes
It’s been almost two months now since the release of Dead Rising 4, and those that have set some time aside since the festive period to sink the hours into Capcom’s apocalyptic adventure will surely be in agreement that the return to small country town of Willamette was a rather simple one to say the least. Sure, you had the same ravenous onslaught of the undead hordes shambling towards Frank’s every movement, and you had the huge new open world environment to wreak havoc on once more. But whilst the beloved Psychos from the previous Dead Rising titles had been replaced with far less menacing Maniacs, you still had some deranged individuals looking to put an end to your survival. One [...]
