Microsoft announced a number of new peripherals and features that will be coming to Xbox One within the next year. These announcements were made during their press conference at GamesCom.
Assassin's Creed is undoubtedly one of the larger franchises in current video games, and can boast being one of the best AND one of the worst franchises to date. Most people were on board for Assassin's Creed when it first launched, and many praised it for the unique gameplay. Collecting flags - at least at that point - was a minor annoyance at best. Assassin's Creed was heralded by many as the next big thing.
The Developers of the popular, albeit frustrating game Chariot have taken things to a whole new, and frankly unnecessary, level. If you have lots of money to spend and too much time on your hands, you can now set up your gaming room for a heightened Chariot playing experience.
Many months back we reviewed a game called Chuck's Challenge, which was created and designed by the Chip's Challenge creator Chuck Sommerville. Playing Chuck's Challenge was great fun, and it brought back memories of playing Chip's Challenge in the early 90s. The problem, however, was that it was not Chip's Challenge.
I think many of you have been waiting for this day for a long time - the 2015 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) - to see what new additions to the gaming world we can spot. One of the games I was expecting the most was No Man's Sky - a virtually infinite universe filled with billions of worlds waiting to be explored.

The rising price of AAA video games at Canadian retail locations is making me wonder something: how long can consumers continue to pay the high price of games? Best Buy Canada and Amazon Canada have been offering a bunch of pre-order incentives for games announced at E3 2015. With a 5-10$ discount, these retailers are charging 64.99 - 69.99; that means the regular price on these titles is 74.99 - 79.99. With a 13% sales tax in Ontario, that means a brand new AAA tilte at full cost could set ...
If you have played the Witcher 3 you no doubt have spent numerous hours battling various NPC's in games of Gwent. You've probably also said, "Man, I wish I could play against my friends on PSN or Xbox Live." While that feature could be coming in the future - at least we hope so - you can now play Gwent OUTSIDE of the Wticher 3.
A new Kings Quest title is here, and although it seems to veer away from the point and click game play from the original, the game still looks fantastic. For 9.99 an episode, or 39.99 for the season pass - which includes all episodes plus a bonus epilogue - is available for preorder on Xbox One and 360, PS4 and PS3, and PC. The first episode will be availabe for everything except the Microsoft consoles on July 28th (a day later, July 29 on Xbox One and 360).
I generally hate MMO's. Let me rephrase that: I loathe MMO's. I just never saw the fun in typing to chat, spending half my game play time swapping weapons and potions, or having to find a guild to truly enjoy the game. I want to play an MMO on my own time, which sometimes is only a few hours a week. Most MMO's don't give that kind of freedom. ESO definitely does.
Ubisoft's press conference lacked any real surprises until near the end, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately for them, they had a tough Microsoft press conference to live up to. I think they did fairly well, despite the lack of 'exciting' announcements.
