New Xbox One Exclusive: Quantum Break
A new exclusive title for Xbox One was announced at E3 titled Quantum Break. Created by developers Remedy this action/adventure title looks like it may just be one to watch in terms of new IPs.
Microsoft Making Changes to Xbox Live
Microsoft have announced some major changes coming to Xbox Live, both in the way it works and in the things you'll get for subscribing. Some of these changes have been a long time coming, while others will affect only a small subset of the Xbox Live community. Even so, they're welcome changes and have a lot of potential.
New Halo Coming 2014
Master Chief is returning next year, in a new experience currently just called Halo. The CGI trailer - which we'll add to this post when it's made available by Microsoft - showed Master Chief walking through the desert, his visor cracked and his armour beaten down. The desert wind hits against his iconic green suit (covered only by a sack cloak of sorts), until he arrives in front of a giant mech. The crowd understandably went wild.
Titanfall Announced for Xbox One
Respawn Entertainment, a company made up of much of the team that left Infinity Ward after the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, officially unveiled the long-awaited Titanfall this evening and the Microsoft 2013 E3 conference. It was much as any fan of Call of Duty might expect - silky smooth multiplayer action with a few clever ideas to really capture the player, keeping them coming back time and time again. There were also mechs. A lot of mechs.
Xbox One Price, Release Date Announced
The Microsoft Conference at E3 2013 is now over, and although there were some pretty fantastic announcements in there and plenty of gameplay, perhaps the most important thing announced were the Xbox One price and release date. While a little on the pricey side - especially after the last few weeks of controversy - the release date is far earlier than the rumours would have had us believe and is right in line with the rumoured release date of the PlayStation 4.
State of Decay is Fastest Selling Arcade New IP
Zombie adventure State of Decay has become the fastest selling new IP on Xbox Live Arcade after its release last week. It sold 250,000 units in only two days and has continued to sell, hitting that sweet spot between zombie adventure and player-controller narrative that perhaps games like DayZ and The Walking Dead so often just miss. There's no doubt that it's paid off anyway, and that State of Decay will continue to be a must-play title over the coming weeks and months.
Harmonix and Disney Announce Fantasia: Music Evolved – thousands ask “why?”
Harmonix and Disney have announced a new game based on the classic Fantastia. That should be pretty damn good, right? The classical music, the wondrous world - where can they go wrong?
Fable HD Coming to Xbox 360
You apparently tweeted it (Lionhead were watching and recording), and now those of you who took to Twitter in literally your millions are getting your wish (not to exaggerate...). The video above, posted to the official Lionhead YouTube channel, more than hits at a HD version of the original game, although this should be viewed as a teaser rather than a full confirmation. Although it says that Fable HD is coming to Xbox 360, basically in black and white, it doesn't actually expressly confirm anything. Don't you just love video game trailers?
Scorpion enters Kombat in Injustice: Gods Among Us
Warner Brothers have announced that the next piece of DLC for superhero brawler will be the iconic Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. Bragging a new design by Jim Lee at DC entertainment, this isn't the first time a Mortal Kombat character has taken on the likes of Batman and Superman, but it might just be the deadliest.
