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!

Grab three friends for new Watch Dogs 2 co-op play

Dave and I have spent many an hour larking around in Watch Dogs 2 co-op, it’s not only an excellent game, but it’s great fun to cause chaos in an online playground with your best friend, but Ubisoft aren’t content with having just two friends against the world, and are adding to this by opening co-op to four players — the mind boggles at the carnage that I could cause with Dave, ...

Eternal Update is the name given to the patch and the newest hero in town is cosmic...

For Honor review

Knights versus Vikings versus Samurai sounds like something the team at Deadliest Warrior would dream up. Instead, Ubisoft are the brains behind the brawn and they are packing all their experience of item leveling from The Division, slick combat and animation from Assassin’s Creed, and a dose of the compelling fast paced multiplayer of Rainbow Six Siege. Thrusting these worlds together is hung loo...

Sniper Elite 4 review

You know the drill: as a lone sniper you are dropped behind enemy lines, stalking the enemy while carefully making your way through the map to the objective without raising the alarm. Rebellion have mixed things up with Sniper Elite 4, with raising the alarm not being such a catastrophe, and huge, open world maps provide plenty of challenge and variety with multiple optional objectives. Set immedi...

AQUA KITTY UDX: Xbox One Ultra Edition review

The premise of Aqua Kitty is simple; battle your way through a world map of levels and kill all the bad guys while dodging their incoming fire to protect your health, made from hearts, and prevent them from catnapping your worker kittens – oh and it’s all set underwater… Yes, underwater – sounds weird right? – Well, it gets weirder. The cats have gotten over their fear of water because there is a ...

When a mysterious code landed in our inbox, we had confirmation of what the Internet suspected, Warhammer Quest would be making its way on to Xbox One and PS4. While no official confirmation could be found, a leaked PS4 trophy list pointed to what might be included with the digitisation of the adventure board game, which is already available on Steam and mobile. As for the code? Well, initially it...

From February 9-12 anyone can download the beta and swear allegiance to a faction – that’s either the Knights, Samurai or Vikings. The last test before the game release on February 14 will i...

Bigben interactive go on the hunt with Hunting Simulator

Ah the hunting genre, and yet with all the shooters out there, it seems such an odd game to make. Yet it hasn’t stopped Cabela releasing hunt after hunt. Someone must buy these games otherwise the sequels would cease, and yet, I am yet to meet anyone who actually plays these games. Bigben Interactive must see some potential in the genre because they have set their sights firmly on portraying...
