Obsessive gamer since I first played Ladybug on my brother's ZX Spectrum. I've been mad for Xbox consoles ever since I bought the original colossus to play Half Life 2 and went on to discover Morrowind, Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire. Gamertag: Dee Dee Diamond, feel free to add me!

Tropico 6 – Next Gen Edition Review

For the most part Tropico 6 - Next Gen Edition is worth it if you’ve enjoyed any of the previous Tropico games and would like to try the new one for the first time, or if you just couldn’t quite fit enough golden statues of yourself on your island without causing the game to lag.

Carnage in Space: Ignition Review

Crank the difficulty up, try to get invested in the story, be aware that the game is very short, and you will probably have a good time; just don’t go in expecting Carnage in Space: Ignition to rival a game five times its price.

If you know nothing about Motocross but would like to start getting into the sport, this might be the perfect time to give MXGP 2021 a go. If you’re a grizzled veteran, go crack open a can of Boomer Juice, whack on some Powerman 5000 and rev that engine!

Looking Back at the first Xbox exclusive JRPG – Enchanted Arms

If you can overlook its flaws, Enchanted Arms has a lot to offer; a light-hearted adventure caper with a fun battle system, some real challenge and depth, plenty of laughs and that comfy, JRPG atmosphere that felt like it went missing for quite some time during the Xbox 360 generation.

Why the Xbox family needs to adopt Sega

It might still concern some people to see Microsoft influencing the industry so freely just by opening its wallet, but I think it would be a tragedy for a company with a history like Sega to not have the resources to utilise their legacy to the fullest.
