I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!

Overcooked 2 review

The cooking madness returns for a second helping and while I missed the first course, it seems the second brings more of the same chaotic goodness and haphazard multitasking mayhem. The Onion king has unwittingly released the unbread upon his land thanks to following a seemingly simple recipe. Now he summons his two chefs to serve up enough tasty treats to sate the appetite of these doughy disaste...

Horizon Zero Dawn to get a board game variant

Steamforged Games are the brains behind the operation – previous work includes Resident Evil’s board game and the excellent Dark Souls board game – Horizon Zero Dawn’s transition to board game will also receive the full support of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe and Guerrilla, so I expect a highly polished game with miniatures that do the game proud. “As huge Horizon Zero Dawn™ f...

NieR:Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition review

Set on post-apocalyptic Earth, the world lies in ruins. Overrun by machines, the human race has escaped to the stars. In a bid to take back the planet the council of humans uses androids, which form an elite YoRHa unit, to explore the surface and rid the planet of the machine menace but the true beauty behind the narrative of the game is one that explores the emotions of both human, android and ma...

Things get hot for Descenders in the latest content update

While Descenders is still in Xbox One’s Preview program, it doesn’t mean that RageSquid are content with just tweaking the experience when bugs and feedback are submitted. Launching August 7, the world of Descenders is going to get hot, hot, hot – a bit like the heatwave the UK has been ‘enjoying’. The Ring of Fire update brings a brand new location to whip, jump and scrub ...

Shadow of the Tomb Raider shows off its ‘stunning world’

The newest Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off its ‘stunning world’ and they aren’t wrong… the world looks incredible and makes me giddy with excitement to see this running on an Xbox One X. Not to get ahead of myself, I got serious Tomb Raider chills from watching this – I’m talking the original game from the days of the first PlayStation console. Vast vistas, lush...

Vampyr gets an easier and harder mode

If you’ve yet to sink your teeth into the juicy neck of Vampyr, then you may want to hang fire until later this summer when two new difficulty modes are unleashed upon DONTNOD’s narrative driven vampire adventure. The update also addresses feedback since the game launched. But the best news is that a story mode is launching, so if you couldn’t get on with the combat – or were put...

The Crew 2 review

I really enjoyed playing through The Crew; its ambition was hard not to fall in love with and the miniaturised digital playground of the United States was a lot of fun to race around in. The Crew 2 promises more – with a bigger representation of the US and more toys to play with but is it in danger of becoming a jack of all trades, master of none? Let’s get this out of the way… it’s hard not to dr...

Darksiders III burns brightly toward a November release

November 27. Mark it down now because the much anticipated Darksiders III finally releases onto console. The next entry into the awesome hack-n-slash action-adventure also come with a several flavours of pre-order to ‘reward’ the loyal fanbase who will undoubtedly be rushing to their favourite retailer to place an order. First up is an exclusive armour DLC that is available at ‘p...

Today SEGA have confirmed that Shenmue I and II will hit console on August 21. Originally released on the Dreamcast, Shemnue hit cult acclaim and for years fans have been calling for a third title to finish off the story. Eventually this became a reality when Shenmue III appeared as a kickstarter. Now that the first games are slated for an Xbox One release, will the third title also find its way o...

Action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr has been slated for a digital release on August 23, with the physical launching the very next day. A release date for North America and Latin America is yet be confirmed. The latest game set in the Warhammer 40K universe has a “strong focus on a persistent online world” and it’s this core mechanic that has led the game’s rele...

Esper review (PSVR)

Esper is not only a super stylish puzzler that has a healthy sprinkle of Portal vibes, but it’s also got bags of charm thanks to the excellent narration skills of Eric Meyers.  Set solely within the confines of an office, you are at the centre of the narrator’s attention. Evidently having telekinetic powers is a bone of contention for the government and so they are testing everyone exhibiting the...
