Waking up to a winter wonderland, and then sitting in a huge tailback on the M1 motorway, I was moved to consider which were my favourite snow-filled levels in games.

Destiny 2: The Curse of Osiris – Is it a blessing or a curse?
The latest piece of Destiny 2 content has now launched, and I've been hands on with it to see if Bungie have brought their A-game this time. Entitled The Curse of Osiris, it deals with the re-emergence of Ikora Rey's mentor, the Warlock Osiris. He was exiled from the City a very long time ago when his research began to take him in a heretical direction, and then disappeared from the face of the Universe. Well, now he’s back, and predictably trouble isn't far behind. But having spent hours with the new content, is this expansion a new Rise of Iron, or is it more a House of Wolves?

FIFA 18 vs. PES 2018 – Which one should you buy?
Rivalries in football don’t come much bigger than the likes of Manchester United vs Liverpool, Celtic vs Rangers, or Barcelona vs Real Madrid.

They’ve both been out for a little while now, so if you’re looking to buy a game for a fan of ‘the beautiful game’, we’re here to help. Which one should you buy this year; PES 2018 or FIFA 18?

If you’re anything like me then the fact Christmas is just a few short weeks away means the following weeks are going to contain the stresses of shopping for presents, wrapping presents and remembering which label goes on which - and the worst thing about it is that there’s no Gamerscore attached for getting it right.

Thoughts and impressions on returning to the wastes of Crossout on Xbox One X and taking the Inventor Pack for a spin
For those of you who have jumped into the world of Crossout, you’ll likely have found yourself spending hours of your time with one of the most creative and destructive titles available on the Xbox One. For me the opportunity to explore a game that looked to combine Robot Wars with Mad Max (minus the dusty wastes) was an instant winner and one I enjoyed from its initial release. If you’re looking for more on Crossout in general, you’d be wise to check out Trysten’s review. My latest venture into the world of custom killing machines however was purely to take a look at the latest changes brought about by the Xbox One X enhancements, exploring the delights of Crossout in 4K, and taking in [...]

Destiny 2’s DLC: Thoughts of Bungie’s live stream reveals – direct from a fanboy!
In just a couple of weeks the first of Destiny 2's DLC additions will be released. Called "the Curse of Osiris", or, as a friend of mine quipped in an Xbox Live party last night, "The Curse of Miley Cyrus", this is Bungie’s chance to address the numerous and noisy complaints of the Destiny player base. With complaints about the lack of meaningful end-game content hitting epidemic proportions, have Bungie done enough to keep everyone, or indeed anyone, happy? I've watched the stream over and over again looking for clues about what we can expect, and I'm cautiously optimistic.

Taking a look at the Danger Zone Xbox One X enhancements and Bonus Phase DLC add-on
I didn’t play Danger Zone prior to receiving my Xbox One X. But with the team at Three Fields Entertainment behind it, and their Burnout history having been the background for a lot of my gaming life, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to check out this Burnout Crash inspired title. And that’s even being safe in the knowledge that this game only really arrived to luke-warm applause. If you want to know more about Danger Zone as a whole, then you could do worse than check out Richard’s review upon its initial Xbox One release, as I’m here for two things only - the Xbox One X update and the latest DLC.

Looking back at 10 years of… Mass Effect
Welcome to a brand-new series of articles where we look back throughout the history of Xbox and celebrate the games on their anniversaries. First on the list is the original Mass Effect, which celebrated its tenth birthday this week.
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!
