I have been playing games since a very early age, thanks to my Dad's encouragement. I've been an Xbox gamer since the very beginning, the Master Chief is to thank for that. I'm also a big Nintendo geek, and my other half is a PlayStation nut. I'll play pretty much anything in any genre (although FIFA and COD maybe pushing it).

Looking Back to 2005 with Super Monkey Ball Deluxe – Roll With It

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe marked the franchise’s first release away from the Nintendo family of consoles, combining all the content of the first two games alongside some new and exclusive stuff. Not only were there a mountain of single player levels to play through, but the game also boasted an impressive collection of multiplayer party games for the seemingly forgotten times when you would get your mates over for some proper local competitive gaming.

Taking a look at Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars via Xbox Game Preview

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars on Xbox One is shaping up to be an immersive and engaging experience, especially for those interested in vampiric myth and legend. There’s a good depth to the strategy and, like a good board game, it is seemingly complicated at first but doesn’t take too long to get to grips with.

Boy, do we have a treat in store for you. We were - once again - kindly invited behind closed doors into Bandai Namco UK HQ for a sneak peak at not one, not two, not even three, but four upcoming games, releasing on Xbox One in the first half of 2020 - One Punch Man, My Hero One's Justice 2, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 and Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris .

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Review – Old Dog, New tricks?

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot on Xbox One is a thoroughly enjoyable game, but those familiar with the series will get more out of it. Despite some relatively minor flaws, regardless of who you are there’s lots of fun to be had here.

Cuisine Royale Review – A Right Royal Treat?

Cuisine Royale is a solid, enjoyable game with a wacky persona. It doesn’t do anything new or particularly different to stand out above its rivals on Xbox, but it's still worth checking out nonetheless.

Immortal Planet Review – An Endless Nightmare?

Immortal Planet on Xbox One has style and decent gameplay to offer. However, it's extremely difficult and requires patience to get the most from it, which can leave the player with an aftertaste of repetition and occasional frustration.

Rift Keeper Review – One to A-void?

Rift Keeper on Xbox One is entertaining for a short period of time, however due to dodgy controls and simple visuals, gives little incentive to carry on playing.

The 5 Biggest – and Most Exciting – Reveals from The Game Awards 2019

The days are long gone when an awards ceremony is simply that. Due to the size of the gaming industry, every event is an opportunity to make some big announcements, this being one of the last opportunities of the year to do so. But just what were the biggest - and most exciting - reveals to come out of The Game Awards 2019?

Hands on with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot with exclusive gameplay footage

Dragon Ball Z is one of those franchises that we have all most likely crossed at some time in our lives. It has a huge fanbase worldwide and, if you hadn’t heard, the latest instalment in the series of games by Bandai Namco is due to be released on 17th January 2020. TheXboxHub were kindly invited to go hands on with the next game - Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot - ahead of launch, and my teenage self leapt at the chance.

Looking back to 2014 with Lara Croft and The Temple of Osiris

It’s a shame that some will have missed out on the brilliant spin-off title, Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light, released way back in 2010. Lara Croft and The Temple of Osiris was the sequel to that game, and just to highlight their departure from the main series, both omit “Tomb Raider” from their titles.

Super Dodgeball Beats Review

Fun, energetic and original, Super Dodgeball Beats on Xbox One delivers exactly what it says on the tin; and it does so well. You may blast through it in a few short hours, but at just £11.99 it’s well worth it. 

Stellatum Review – Into the Void

Stellatum on Xbox One certainly catches the eye at first, and the upgrade system adds a basic element of strategy. However, despite being playable, it runs out of ideas quickly and starts to feel like a grind, which makes it hard to recommend.
