NOW That’s What I Call Sing! Review

It’s nearing Christmas and the New Year so what better game should you be parting your cash for than with a karaoke title?

Well, we guess there are a good few but if you are needing something to keep the family busy for a few hours over the holiday period, then throw a mic their way and fire up NOW That’s What I Call Sing on Xbox One. It may not have all the bells and whistles that Lips used to run with on Xbox 360, but we’re sure it’ll do the job of party entertainer.

You can just sit in the corner and count down the minutes until the alcohol kicks in and you’ve got the Xbox to yourself again!

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Gentleman Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition announced for Xbox One and PS4

We’re not really sure how many times 2K and Gearbox can repackage the same game, but if you have a couple of hundred quid spare, or need to add something special o that Christmas list of yours, then how about checking out the awesome looking Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Gentleman Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition?

You’ve probably played both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands The Pre-Sequel, but have you ever seen the stunning app-controlled Gentleman CL4P-TP unit, complete with its gadgets such as a camera, a variety of playable phrases, and a microphone to communicate through its speaker? We reckon it’s worth the £269.99 asking price alone!

Whenever something contentious comes out of the videogames industry, it’s jumped upon quicker than you can imagine. So when we see some good coming out of the industry, we feel it’s only right to cover it fully.

Konami have taken a bit of a kicking in recent times, but the news that they are working with a leading prosthetic limb designer in order to help an amputee gamer fulfill his dream is something all need to know about. Whether you feel good or bad about the company as a whole, surely no-one can argue that the Phantom Limb Project isn’t a great thing!?
