Xbox One X Enhanced Titles at 21/8/17

So, pre-orders for the “most powerful console ever” are live. But, it must be said, the console exclusive games at launch are not plentiful.

Xbox One X to be playable at EGX 2017

Sometimes a piece of news comes along that makes you smile, sing and dance for joy. This piece was one of those. Each year I go to EGX, whether at Earls Court in London, or more recently at the NEC in Birmingham.

Tacoma Review

Tacoma is going to be a very difficult game to review and score.
