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.

Live out your shark fantasy in Maneater; out now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC!

Did you watch Jaws and sympathise more with the beast in the ocean? Did you hear that humans kill 100 million sharks every year and want to even the score? Or do you just want to play as a shark and have some fun? if the answer to any of those questions was yes, then Maneater on Xbox One, PS4 and PC might be the game for you.

Kingdom Two Crowns Review

By fusing strategy elements, 2D side-scrolling and tower defence mechanics, Kingdom Two Crowns on Xbox One forges a game unlike any other. It has a widely unique approach to its gameplay loop. While it's definitely not the first game to have players build during the day and survive the night (Minecraft, anyone?), Kingdom does it in a way that no one else has.

5 Best Bits from the Xbox Series X Gameplay Reveal Event

The day is here and we've finally seen our first look at gameplay on the Xbox Series X, Microsoft's next-gen console due out this year. While the Inside Xbox show was light on big, blockbuster games, we still got a look at a ton of exciting stuff. If you were disappointed by the lack of first-party titles such as Halo, the team confirmed Xbox Game Studios will be having their own showcase in July. Xbox also announced they'll be having news every month leading up to the launch of Series X. But, for now, let us gush over our first looks at the future of Xbox.

Hyperdot Review

Hyperdot on Xbox One is a fun, minimal and inoffensive arcade game. With a friend, dodging a barrage of colourful shapes can be a blast. But playing the game alone only exposes how repetitive Hyperdot can get despite some really tense challenges and a surprisingly deep level editor. Omissions like online multiplayer and the inability to share and browse custom levels also hurt Hyperdot's quality and make its asking price hard to justify.

Hotline Miami Collection Review

The Hotline Miami Collection on Xbox One features fast-paced action, an unbeatable soundtrack, retro presentation and an intriguing plot. Lots of replay value, optional ways to play and a tough-as-nails difficulty will keep any gamers invested for a long time. If you’re willing to move past some annoying gameplay sections to get to see Hotline’s coolest ideas, than the Collection is a no-brainer.

Games to Play on National Siblings Day

There's no one you can so passionately love and hate as a sibling. But as much as you want to throw your controllers at them, it's tough to not miss them at the moment. If distance is keeping you apart, or even if it's not, here are some games to play to either remind you of the rascals or connect with them through gaming this National Siblings Day.

State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition Review

State of Decay's formula has so much potential to be special in the future. Its zombie survival and RPG mechanics are uniquely applied to an open world but there's too much repetition and bland environments in State of Decay 2 to make it the zombie apocalypse of our dreams. More narrative missions to add gameplay variety and focused map design can go a long way in State of Decay's future, but for now the Juggernaut Edition on Xbox One is a welcome improvement to the 2018 game.

Ranking the Gears of War Games

Gears of War. A series synonymous with being at the heart of the Xbox gaming scene. But things have come a long way since the launch of the original game way back in 2006, with multiple entries in the series taking the cover-shooting greatness to consistently new heights. But what are the best of the Gears of War games?

Bleeding Edge out now on Xbox One, PC, Play Anywhere and Game Pass!

The 5 Best Bioware Games On Xbox

With the controversial launches of Anthem and Mass Effect Andromeda, it's easy to forget that Bioware were once regarded as masters of the RPG genre. They released hit after hit during the 2000s and are arguably one of the most influential RPG studios to ever exist. It's heartbreaking to see a pioneer of the genre go through such tough times, so to cheer us up let's remind ourselves of the magic the studio is capable of.

With Xbox Series X due to drop nearer the close of the year, and all manner of great games coming to Xbox One in the meantime, we're not going to be short of games to play. And in and amongst those titles will be a shed load of Xbox first party experiences.

Rare Games That Need A Comeback

Rare is easily the most historic Xbox Game Studio. Founded in 1985, Rare may have begun life churning out middling titles for Nintendo but in the '90s Rare became a juggernaut within the games industry. They released classic after classic in quick succession and the most impressive part was the variety in titles. Beat 'em ups, Kart racers, platformers, first-person shooters, third-person action games; Rare did it all. But they need to bring some of these games back. Now.
