So here we are, on the cusp of the final DLC of year one of Destiny 2. I know its been a while since you have heard from me about Destiny, (heck heard from me in general) and well, this latest dev update warrants me speaking on it. Bungie has finally dated and named the […]Read More Destiny 2: A Return to Form?
This won’t be a long story but I felt it important enough to share. This morning, my wife and I were sipping our coffees and just talking about what all we have to do today in preparations for the upcoming sale of our home.

You know how every now and again a trailer or a screenshot comes across the screen and catches your eye? I just had one such moment when I watched the trailer for The Long Reach for the first time and rushed over here to make sure I shared the experience.

With all of the controversy going on with Star Wars Battlefront 2 and micro-transactions, this question crossed my mind. We all know that development costs of Triple-A games can be in the millions.

Kickstarter is a hit and miss and a mixed bag, especially in recent years, which sees the birth of phenomenal successes such as Rad Rodgers, Shovel Knight, Undertale and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (despite it’s inferior to its predecessor, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse) and dumpster fires like Bangarang: A Short Film Before Rufio (starring Dante […]Read More Griff The Winged Lion: Back To Basics

With a price of $500, the Xbox One X sits atop of the console market as the fastest and most expensive console in 2017. These announcements have not been without controversy; some are questioning who will pay that much for a new console with the One S now a measly $200 (with current sales). Is the ‘Premium Console’ a needed or wanted device?Read More Opinion: Premium Consoles, Premium Service – The Thing of the Future
I went into this year’s e3 event looking for a few different things, but possibly at the top of that list is that I wanted to be sold on buying an Xbox One — whether the S console or the Scorpio.

Today was an amazing day. I love EA. For years they have made games that I derive so much pleasure and enjoyment from. There have been some bad days following them for sure, but a lot of good ones too thanks to the games they make. Most of you know, my favorite of their franchise […]Read More Coach is Jacked for Madden: Responds from the Sideline
This is the first footage we’ve seen from Kingdom Hearts 3 since its original unveiling over 3 years ago so that’s exciting. Unfortunately this trailer didn’t include a release date. Continue to expect KH3 in 2018 until otherwise noted as that was the window published during Square Enix’s last investors call. http://www.hd.square-enix.com/eng/ir/library/docs/170511/page02.html Maybe we’ll see more […]Read More ICYMI – New Trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3

When I first heard I would not be playing as Clementine in the Walking Dead season 3, I found myself upset. I played as Lee begrudgingly.

The Xbox is so much more than a gaming console, but it doesn’t have to be. For me, my Xbox is my hub, my daily routine. I wake up and I turn on my Xbox. My main page doesn’t feature the last game I have played, it shows me YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now […]Read More How do YOU XBox?
Every now and then, a piece of entertainment sneaks up on you and surprises you in a good way.
