Time sure flies by in the world of Xbox One and Xbox 360, it’s that time of the week where we look back at the last seven days worth of goings on with regards to news, reviews and opinions.

2K cranked up the marketing for WWE 2K15 with the release of an official gameplay trailer in an attempt to convince fans worldwide that they mustn’t ignore the next wrestling instalment. In the words of Joey Styles, “Oh my god” because it was simply an adrenaline rush filled with hard hitting signature and finishing moves. The WWE fans amongst us here at TXH we’re blown away by some of the visuals, even those who don’t like it admired the realism.
Are you ready to enter Mordor? Well Warner Bros. weren’t sure so they released a new trailer, pretty close to the upcoming release, for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Worth a watch even if you have seen a lot of footage as it’s a decent re-cap to create excitement.
