My earliest gaming memories come from playing Pokemon Crystal on the Game Boy, Kingdom Hearts on the PS2 and most importantly Halo 3 on the Xbox 360. I've pretty much played video games everyday since and still get excited about what's to come.

Looking Back to 2017 and the slippery, slithery Snake Pass

Snake Pass is a game that dares to be different. It asks players to engage with it in a way that few games do: forget everything you know about any game you’ve played and relearn it to discover something completely new.

Looking back to 2012 and the polarizing ending of Mass Effect 3

We can’t talk about Mass Effect 3 without talking about its polarizing ending. And when I say it’s polarizing, I mean it was pretty much the most controversial thing in nerd culture at the time.

Sable Review

A few rough edges do not stop Sable from being a one-of-a-kind adventure about finding yourself while alone in the big wide world. I hope Sable can fix its technical issues soon, because what’s underneath is a game full of discovery, tiny nuggets of wisdom and a plethora of ways to customise your insanely cool hover bike.

Looking Back to 2016 and the brilliance of Playdead’s Inside

At first, Inside was a transcendent experience. I had goosebumps as I played through its fever dream environments and lucid puzzles. I loved it as a game. Over time, Inside has taken on a new meaning. A personal one, an academic one, a political one.

A whole load of quality hit Xbox Game Pass through June 2021

June marks E3 month, and Xbox did not disappoint in their 2021 showcase. But since Game Pass is now such a big part of Xbox’s strategy, it would be impossible for them to not mention the service at the biggest gaming event of the year. If you’re looking for some Game Pass glories though, here are June 2021’s Xbox Game Pass highlights and the games you should be playing right now on Xbox

Wreckfest Xbox Series X|S Review

Destruction Derby has not been this good in video games for years. It’s just such a shame the publisher is charging for an update that affects Xbox Series S players in such a way. If you’re playing on an Xbox Series X, then Wreckfest is a fast, aggressive and chaotically fun racing game. I would definitely recommend it. Otherwise, wait for an update on the Series S side, for the time being.

What were the best bits of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021?

During a decidedly light E3 2021, Xbox and Bethesda came through swinging, bringing their best E3 presentation for years. It seems Xbox’s strategy is finally paying off as Xbox has proved that there has never been a better time to invest in their ecosystem.

Looking back at the dark twists of Alice: Madness Returns

Ultimately, Alice: Madness Returns is a little bit mad. Its visual design is bonkers, its genre-hopping is refreshing and frantic and its story is all about Alice’s madness. There is so much to love about Madness Returns despite the rough edges around gameplay, story and level design.

Looking back to the failed parkour of 2016’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Mirror's Edge will likely never get a third try. The second game does not look like a cheap effort. By all accounts it is beautiful, especially with its FPS Boost enhancements. The city glows at nights and shines in the day. Lights will reflect off of Catalyst’s many structures made of glass. It’s spectacular to run through. But such a lavish production often comes with risk aversion and sadly Catalyst crumbles under this pressure. It’s held back by the pressure to conform, rather than trying to be genuinely different.

What are the best new Xbox Game Pass titles of May 2021?

Xbox Game Pass is a service that’s so good, it’s overwhelming. So much gets added to the service every single month that it’s easy to feel like you’re drowning in your backlog. We feel the same! That’s why every month we’ll be compiling the very best games added to Game Pass to help you decide what to play next. Here are the Xbox Games Pass’ highlights for the month of May 2021!

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Review

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is going to be the perfect game for some people and the most tedious of ones for others. Presenting a more directed take on the classic Minecraft structure, this succeeds at retaining that creativity while actively giving players something to work for and something tangible to do. But, more impressively, Builders 2 never feels like a pale imitation.

Xbox Game Pass keeps delivering on great games

Xbox Game Pass keeps delivering on great games, big news and incredible value month-after-month. April 2021 hasn’t been any different for the service. Several games debuted onto the service the day of their launch, some joined the service after a long wait and one re-joined the service after a long hiatus. But with so many games cycling in and out of Xbox Game Pass, it can be almost too much content to keep up with. That’s why we’ve compiled the service’s biggest highlights into one place. Here are the Xbox Game Pass’ April 2021 highlights:
