As we approach Christmas and the New Year, things have wound down a little. We’ve still had a fair few articles posted but for the most part, sales have dominated.
But my god what decent sales they have been!
Not content with just having the usual weekly discounts on a huge number of games, Microsoft have been treating us to some rather tasty daily deals with their Xbox Countdown to 2014 sale. Whilst the deals have all lasted for 24 hours only, it is most definitely worth your while keeping an eye on that post as it’s updated daily with all the latest goodies as and when they go live. With another week still to go, we’re expecting some more super hot stuff to be reduced and you can be sure to read about it all here.
Away from the sales, we posted our Xbox One Call of Duty Ghosts review. It turned out to be the shortest ever review to go live on TXH, as we didn’t want to go over all the details found when we reviewed the game on the Xbox 360, and besides from some slightly better graphics, the game is exactly the same as it was on 360 and so there wasn’t really an awful lot more we could add. It is however still worth a read if you are thinking about picking Ghosts up on Xbox One anytime in the near future.
If you are still residing on the Xbox 360, then by all means pick the latest COD title up because it’s a cracking game on that system, but if you are looking for something a little different (and a lot cheaper!), then you could do worse than to take a crack at Shoot Many Robots. It’s currently free to download for all Xbox Live Gold members courtesy of the Xbox Games With Gold promotional scheme, so if you haven’t yet picked it up, jump over to the Xbox Games Store and get your download started. Be quick though because once December is over, the freeness will be gone forever!
And finally we’ve covered the launch of two rather different games over the last week. Whilst The Walking Dead Season Two Episode One has been hotly anticipated and really does need no introduction, we had a bit of a shock when it was announced that puzzler/platformer Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood was to release on Xbox One. We had it all set for a 2014 release and so the news that it was dropping the very next day was to come as a surprise, albeit a very welcome one. We’ll have a full review for you in the coming days, so if you are unsure as to whether its worth a purchase, you may want to read our thoughts first.
Have a good Christmas and we’ll catch you again next weekend. In the meantime, feel free to follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. You may also like to subscribe to our YouTube channel (especially if you are on the lookout for that last Zoo Tycoon Hidden Coin!).
