Garten of Banban 4 Review

Garten of Banban 4 is where the series starts to find its stride. But it is still some way from being the pinnacle of mascot horror

Huggy Wuggy arrives on Xbox in Poppy Playtime: Chapter 1

Have you ever wondered why so many kids were running round with blue teddies of a thing with elongated limbs? They were sold everywhere you went during the summer holidays of 2022. That’s Huggy Wuggy, and he is anything but child friendly. Find out his origins today as Poppy Playtime: Chapter 1 releases on Xbox.

Garten of Banban 3 Review

Garten of Banban 3 isn’t the strongest entry in the series, but by this point if you have played all three, you are probably invested until the end.

Runestone Keeper Review

Remember when you got your first PC and spent hours exploring everything it could do? I’m talking about the programs – nowadays referred to as Apps – such as Paint or Encarta, or the games like Solitaire, Pinball or Minesweeper. If your heart just swelled up with memories of Minesweeper and wasting away hours on it then well my friend, come with me as I introduce you to Runestone Keeper, the distant cousin to Minesweeper that the family don’t really want you hanging around with.

Sea of Thieves Issue #2 – Comic Review

After the excellent first issue, the second chapter in the spin-off comic series of Sea of Thieves is now here, continuing the adventures of DeMarco and Lesedi Singh. Siblings yet rival captains of pirate ships, we follow them as they search for their fathers’ legendary treasure, hidden away in the Sea of Thieves.

Deep Ones Review

Looks can be deceiving. Those four words can be a powerful message - and for anyone that falls victim to it, it can be a tough lesson to learn. My latest example of this is my time spent with Deep Ones.

Sea of Thieves Issue #1 – Comic Review

Continuing to be a divisive addition to the 2018 gaming roster - even non-players of the game find themselves choosing sides when it comes to Sea of Thieves - Rare’s game has been commended for being unique and original, but criticised for lacking almost everything else. But much like a pirate myself, I have found the treasure that is ‘everything else’. It’s hidden in plain sight in this comic, almost under your noses. And you should all read it, because it's fab.

Third Editions – BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia – Book Review

Off the back of BioShock Infinite celebrating its fifth anniversary and Third Editions completing their second successful Kickstarter, we can now take a look at another of their offerings, this one focusing on the BioShock trilogy.

Devil May Cry HD Collection Review

Another day and another ‘remaster’. This time it is Devil May Cry. Again. And again the Devil May Cry HD Collection is one fans are already familiar with, having released on the 360 back in 2012. Existing fans of the series will have likely picked this up before so it is with disappointment that this new release offers nothing new for existing fans... except some great gameplay.

Looking back at 5 years of… BioShock Infinite

BioShock Infinite celebrates its fifth birthday on the 26th March 2018, so we are looking back at one of the finest examples of story-telling in gaming. Regardless of whether or not you understood the ending first time around – I know I didn’t - it stands up as an excellent game. I’ve been really looking forward to this one.

Nine Parchments Review

Nine Parchments is the latest game from Finnish studio Frozenbyte, and having been first released on Steam and Nintendo Switch at the back end of last year, now finds its way onto the Xbox One.

Surviving Mars Review

Surviving Mars describes itself as a “hardcore survival city-builder, where players will be tasked with creating a liveable colony in the harsh, hostile environs of Mars”. The hardcore nature though comes about because it doesn’t offer any guidance until a mistake has been made, instead relying on you to actually figure out what is required yourself. Omitting information seems a cheap way to increase difficulty.

Looking back at 10 years of… Lost: Via Domus

Lost will forever hold a place in TV history. Regarded as one of the greatest shows of all-time, it boasted the most expensive pilot episode ever and had a main cast of 14 characters, which was unheard of at the time it first aired back in 2004 – and a year later on British shores.  It was bold and daring at the time and despite drawing to a conclusion nearly 8 years ago, nothing in my eyes has come close since. Naturally then, there were to be other forms of media for fans to engross themselves further in the mythology, and in 2008, at the height of the TV show's popularity, Lost: Via Domus was released on Xbox 360 on the 28th February in Europe.

Monster Hunter: World Review

It was when I was hunting a Great Jagras for a second time in Monster Hunter World that something just clicked. Despite it being an action-RPG that isn’t afraid to make things a bit trickier than other games out there, Monster Hunter World is an incredibly calming and satisfying game, and will easily be up there as one of the best games of 2018.

Looking back at 10 years of… Devil May Cry 4

Next up on TheXboxHub’s look back at games celebrating an anniversary is Devil May Cry 4. It may not be the most obvious place to start in the series, but as it was the first in the series to release on any Xbox platform, that is good enough for us.

The first big release of the year – Monster Hunter World – is now available on Xbox One and PS4

The Monster Hunter series is making its first foray onto current generation consoles, with MH: World becoming the first to be released simultaneously across the world. And today is the day in fact!

Looking back at 10 years of… Burnout Paradise

Burnout Paradise celebrates its 10th anniversary this week, and with rumours flying around relating to an Xbox One release, now feels like the perfect time to have a look back at a beloved franchise that holds a special place in many gamers' hearts, not least mine.

Winx Club: Alfea Butterflix Adventures Review

Heinous isn’t a word I typically use in writing a review, but for this game I would like to make an exception and open up on why Winx Club: Alfea Butterflix Adventure is a heinous game.
