Xbox One exclusives will be available on Xbox Games Pass on day of release

If you don’t own many Xbox One titles then then Xbox Games Pass is a pretty awesome deal, £8 a month to access over 100 titles is too good to miss, but for many of us it’s not really worth...[Read More]

Maize review

I could start this review with a few “corny” jokes, or discuss whether this game is “A-maize-ing, or even comment on how it “Barley” meets the standard of current-gen gra...[Read More]

Life is Strange: Before The Storm – Part 3: Hell is Empty review

TiX’s GOTY 2017

Ever since TiX went multiplatform this year, it was clear that one game would shoot right into some of the teams GOTY lists for 2017. I mentioned in my nominations that the chances are this would have...[Read More]

Dave’s GOTY 2017

I joined TiX earlier in 2017, so that makes this my first ever Game Of the Year post as a (part-time) bona-fide games reviewer. I always thought this decision would be awful, but in this case my GOTY ...[Read More]
