Remember, remember the 5th of November, as the old saying goes anyways.
Bonfire night is the UK's annual tradition of ‘celebrating’ Guy Fawkes and his plot to bomb the Houses of Parliament. It's typically a joyous occasion as communities come together for food, drink and, of course, fireworks.
All this is a lot of fun, unless you suffer from anablephobia, the fear of looking up. Of if you are a dog. Well, fear not because we can help by presenting to you the best Fireworks from the gaming scene!
So stay inside, grab yourself a Pumpkin Spice Latte, a slice of parkin, and a nice hot bowl of pork pie and mushy peas and watch these digital fireworks instead. It's warmer inside too!

The 6 Indie games that stole the EGX 2017 show
If I'm honest, it's the indie gaming scene which is where my heart is at, and with that in mind it could be said I spent far too long hanging around the indie booths at EGX 2017. But by stationing myself in and amongst the smaller titles on show, it also gave me the perfect opportunity to get hands-on with many great games.
I've already told you about my favourite games from EGX 2017 - but that list included both Triple-A titles and those games that have come about by the smaller development teams. And now I wish to just focus on those indie games which stole the show!

But which were the indie games from EGX 2017 that jumped out and shouted ‘look at me, look at me’? Well, the following five titles most definitely came out of nowhere to blow my mind!

The 5 most incredible games on show at EGX 2017
If you were in the UK between the 21st-24th September 2017, and like gaming, then you really should have been at the Eurogamer Expo 2017. Filled with hundreds of games, with offerings from the smallest of micro studios, right up to the biggest blockbusting publishing houses, there was pretty much a game for everyone.
But with Nintendo dominating the show, and Xbox and Playstation holding their own with smaller stands, the real stars were the games themselves with all manner of titles on display. But what were the best games of the entire show? Which titles stood out from the rest? These are the 5 most incredible games I had the pleasure of going hands-on with at EGX 2017.

E3 2017 and many people tuned in to Microsoft's E3 conference to find out about the highly-anticipated Project Scorpio. Of course, we now know it as Xbox One X and it will be the world’s most powerful console.

They confirmed that Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge will be the first game available from the original Xbox and Microsoft have even gone as far to say they may be able to retrospectively add Achievements to first party games.

Ten Of The Most Memorable Xbox One Boss Fights
Bosses eh? They're a funny bunch. Sometimes they are too easy, sometimes insanely hard, but when they are done well, the memory of the fights can stay with you long after the game is over and done with. I've sat down, pulled on my thinking cap and had a good look back through all the games that I've played on Xbox One since its launch. From this mammoth brainstorming session, I've culled my ten most memorable boss fights. They aren't all the hardest by any means, and some of them are memorable for some strange reasons, but at the end of the day they've stayed with me.

5 of the best free-to-play games on Xbox One
Being a gamer these days can be pretty expensive, with top titles always lurking just around the corner, looking to relieve you of a decent amount of cash. So it’s a welcome relief to see an influx of free-to-play titles hit the Xbox One in recent times, providing a variety of games to delve into without a price tag. Sure, most of the time the developers actively encourage the purchase of add-ons, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy free-to-play titles and keep your wallet out of sight.
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!
