Toby The Secret Mine review

Released back in 2015 on Steam, Toby The Secret Mine is only just making its debut on consoles, with Wii U and Xbox One being the first step. Red-eyed catlike creatures have kidnapped your friends and you must find (and save) them. They have been taken in to a mine full of traps and puzzles that aim to catch you out, should you not be eagle-eyed enough to spot them. The game is beautifully present...

Rainbow Six Siege’s Velvet Shell kicks off year two

Rainbow Six Siege will be kicking off its second year of operations with Velvet Shell, which includes a new map and two new Spanish operators. This first DLC of the second season will be broadcast live during the Six Invitational – the largest PC/Xbox One Rainbow Six Siege tournament in the world. I’m really chuffed to see Rainbow Six Siege performing so well, especially after criticism of t...

Candleman burns brightly and exclusively on Xbox One

The year hasn’t started too well for Xbox One. There’s a real lack of exclusive titles winging their way to the platform, but it’s not all doom and gloom, especially when indie developer Spotlightor Interactive is lighting the way with Candleman, an Xbox exclusive title, which pits you as candle (yes, a candle) that must find its way through each level before the light it can bur...

Tag up your A40s with Halo Wars 2

ASTRO Gaming have announced a lovely set of speaker plates, compatible with the ASTRO A40, for Halo Wars 2. Previously, these special edition Halo plates have come with in game bonuses, but with Halo Wars 2 all you will get is a set of three plates for your $25/£20. They must be popular, the UK store is already showing them as out of stock! Halo Wars 2 launches on Xbox One February 21st, with a be...

Little Nightmares will be had on Xbox One

Coming April 28, Little Nightmares’ Six is trapped in ‘The Maw’. Armed with nothing but a lighter, can you help guide Six past the darkness and the residents of The Maw and back to safety? Riffing off of the style of Limbo and Unravel, Six must engage in a game of hide and seek, interspersed with puzzles where each room you have to navigate is a cell, and each resident is a poten...

Is that a new Xbox One dashboard, or are you just pleased to see me?

It seems our ‘beloved’ Xbox One dashboard is going to get another revamp. Originally built with Kinect in mind, before taking the peripheral out of bundles, the Xbox One dashboard has failed in recreating the simple yet intuitive experience of the Xbox 360. Recently, Mike Ybarra revealed that changes were afoot and that optimisations were planned that would increase the speed of the da...

Titanfall Frontline… Titan down!

After a short spell on Xbox, Titanfall has gone multiplatform and was even hoping to make the jump to mobile with a strategy card game. After a beta trial period it seems that Titanfall Frontline will never see the light of day as a full release onto app stores with the servers going offline on January 20, 2017. Here’s the statement in full, which can be found on the game’s official we...

Play Watch Dogs 2 for three

Still yet to get your hack on and join Dedsec’s misadventures in San Francisco? Did my glowing review not quite convince you? Surely you saw that Watch Dogs 2 picked up our Action/Adventure GOTY in the 12 days of TiXmas? No!… well I guess there’s no pleasing you, but Ubisoft may just have the tease to show you just why you need Watch Dogs 2 in your console. Starting January 24, you can...

Available now to purchase, or as part of the Gold Edition and season pass, Steep’s Adrenaline Pack DLC is rammed full of Glow-in-the-dark goodness, well… three costumes and two wingsuits – Tron, eat your heart out. There is also some kit for the daytime riders too with the Red Freeride and the Freestyle Sunny Deer boards, and the Woodcutter and the Crystalline outfits. But you needn’t ...

Halo was to become a Mega Bloks game

How cool does this Halo Mega Bloks game look! Developed by N-Space and supposedly cancelled in 2013, this footage surfaced over the weekend courtesy of the YouTube channel PtoPOnline. Real or just an excellent fan creation, there seems to be a real appetite in the video’s comments for a Mega Bloks Halo game – and why not – it looks like it could be Xbox’s answer to a Ratchet & Clan...
