In gaming, the longstanding rivalry between PlayStation and Xbox has crafted a narrative that's as compelling as any blockbuster game.

Reinventing the Past – Why a Classic will always be a Classic

Sometimes it seems like nothing or very, very little in popular culture is ever invented any more. Updates to products, trends and style are just that – updates rather than brand new offerings. Past hits are dusted off, given a new metaphorical lick of paint, repackaged and marketed as the new all singing, all-dancing must have item of the day. But is that such a bad thing?

Top games that need to be created for the Xbox

In the past few years Xbox users have been pretty well treated with some great Xbox exclusives. It’s certainly been an enjoyable experience watching PlayStation fans salivating with envy about the way that we all got to play Rise of the Tomb Raider months before any other platform.

Breaking Down Xbox Rewards and Games With Gold

A few days back, we highlighted the latest batch of free Xbox Games With Gold (these being for the month of June) and asked the question: are they any good? As anyone who read that piece will tell you, the answer is a definite "yes," as it's hard to turn up one's nose at the chance to play Super Meat Boy, The Crew, and others for the cost of an ongoing Gold membership. OK, sure, Goat Simulator is absolute rubbish after a handful of minutes, but at least you didn't really pay for it, right? Not technically, at least. Anyway, looking back at that post made me think more about Microsoft's approach to rewarding its users and why it works so well. And part of the answer to that particular thought is quite simple, actually: rewards help to retain consumers and create a loyal following. By giving back to the consumers who fatten the company's pockets, the company is keeping those consumers happy. That, in turn, will clearly lead said consumers to continue spending money and, even better, convince others to become Team Xbox.

Will Xbox have a VR headset?

For many in the industry, there is an expectation that Microsoft could join the virtual reality revolution. However, nothing on ground presently suggests it could come to life anytime soon; if at all.

Replay: VHS is not dead Review

Replay: VHS is not dead is a refreshing, mechanically complex platforming puzzle game. It embraces VHS, and all the quirks and movies that came from it. The game utilises the quick convenience of being able to rewind your VHS; allowing for a lot of interesting and varied challenges and it does this within a setting that will be sure to invoke some form of nostalgia.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Review

The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy is a group of games that are okay, but really fail to deliver much more. Each game shares similarities with the others. They all offer a relatively bland story and deliver it in a lacklustre fashion, failing to draw you in, or allowing you to develop a connection or attachment to the plot or the characters. As a result, I feel the protagonists are quite unmemorable. For side-scrolling fans, the gameplay is pretty good and compliments the excellent level design very well, with an interesting array of new weapons to take advantage of. However, the key stealth mechanics do not feel as satisfying as they have in the previous big budgeted AC games.

Dad Beat Dads Review

Over the decades, video game heroes have come and gone.

So I did. Here are 5 of my most memorable video game heroes!

5 of the most memorable video game villains

With that in mind, instead of trying to establish the five best, I am instead going to pick out five particularly memorable villains from games that I have played.

Resident Evil 0 Review

The game is certainly not bad and took me on a nostalgia fueled ride back to when I first played it about 10 years ago as an 11 year old kid. The remastered graphics look great and I thoroughly enjoyed the story, far more than I enjoyed the actual gameplay.

Hyperdrive Massacre Review

Hyperdrive Massacre is exactly what it says on the tin; a super fast game that gives the player the ability to continually destroy their friends in a variety of game modes over and over again. Its simple controls coupled with its fast paced action creates an experience that can be enjoyed by you and up to three other friends. Although it isn't without its faults, Hyperdrive managed to keep me, and a number of my friends, coming back to test out each others massacring ability time and time again.
