A Sea of Thieves Life for Me?

Recently I got an Xbox Series S and Gamepass. I’ve been playing a lot of different games. One of the games I’ve wanted to play for awhile now is Sea of Thieves. I always thought the game looked neat! And now I’ve played the game a little bit and here are my first thoughts on it. Sea of Thieves has been out for awhile now. I heard about the game and I knew it had a bit of a mixed…

If you’ve been reading my columns and/or you know me, then you know that I’m a huge Nintendo fan. You may even know that I like Playstation. You may or may realize that I’ve always liked Xbox too.

Shocking right? I…

Summer Game Events Prove There’s No News

Partly because of leakers, partly because of Covid – the Summer game events over the past few weeks have proven that the era of megaton gaming news is basically gone. That might sound extreme, but it’s true. Outside of billion-dollar acquisitions, when was the last time we were truly surprised by something? And acquisitions aren’t something we want often enough to make up for the quiet. Everybody wants to announce their new game like it’s a megaton. The Last of…

It’s Time for Final Fantasy VII Remake on Xbox

Final Fantasy VII Remake came to Steam last night. It’s been on PC via the Epic Game Store for six months, and was on PlayStation platforms for 18 months before that. It’s time, Square Enix – bring it to Xbox. I’m the biggest fan of these games. We shelled out on the special edition of the Remake, and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. I loved the DLC too. With its availability slowly expanding, it doesn’t seem like there’s…

Victrix Pro AF Headset Review

I've been a huge supporter of Performance Design Products for a long time now, and they have always been great supporters of the website. In general, I do really enjoy the products the company puts out, but I've also had my issues with them. Most notably, I've never been overly impressed with the headsets the company has released. While they have been adequate and good for the price point, they've never been my go-to for long gaming periods, and rarely stick to the games shelf - they are often just relegated to the basement shelf. That's changed with the ...

Fact Check: Starfield is a Bethesda Game

Today we’re putting aside the irreverent gaming commentary to bring you the most important fact from yesterday’s Xbox conference. Despite the apparent surprise from huge swathes of the gaming community, Starfield is indeed a Bethesda game. I can sympathize. Really I can. You follow a game for years and years, straight from its announcement at the Bethesda conference. You expect a brand new Bethesda RPG in space. Then the day comes: gameplay for the first time. But alas, it’s an…

More Thoughts From Me Special Edition: Starfield looks AMAZING

I watched the Xbox/Bethesda showcase today and I thought…well…it was okay. It started out well and it ended well, but the middle was a bit of mess. Diablo IV looked great but there were a lot of smaller games too that looked just alright. It wasn’t Xbox’s best showing. That said, Starfield completely knocked my socks off. What an amazing looking game. Let’s talk about it! Starfield has been teased for awhile. Its from the creators of Elder Scrolls and…

E3 Is Sorely Missed

It’s been some 15 years since I first started covering E3 and it’s been almost like a religious holiday to me ever since. It’s Christmas without the drunken uncle and his racist rants. It was pretty obvious that it was on its last legs these past few years. What can the organisers possibly offer today that publishers can’t just do themselves online? “Come be part of our big named event – bring money”. As a business, it was going the…
