Turtle Beach Elite 800x review

turtle_beach_elite_800x

Turtle Beach continually strive to make the best headsets around, they already have a hugely successful range of Xbox One headsets and with the arrival of the Elite 800x they were hoping to finish off any competition… unfortunately, the 800x fell at the final hurdle.

Packaging

The standard Turtle Beach packaging is great quality as usual, the plush white box makes a satisfying whoosh as you open it for the first time revealing the headset. Under the main packaging you’ll find everything you need to get started.

With the headset you’ll get the magnetic charging stand, digital optical cable and USB cables for updating the firmware on the stand and headset.

Setting up

As ever, getting the Headset ready is rather simple, plug the digital optical cable in to the Xbox and the charging stand, then plug the USB into the console and to the back of the stand to power it up. After checking the audio settings on the console are correct, you can turn the headset on. There might be a chance that you’ll need to pair the headset with the stand, but in my case I didn’t need to do that.

Charging Stand

I’ve had various ways of storing my headsets over the years, and most of the time they just end up hiding away in my drawer of gaming stuff, not anymore. The stand for the Elite 800x not only acts as somewhere to rest your set, but it also charges the built-in battery at the same time. The picture below demonstrates just how nice it looks. The stand is magnetic so the headset sticks in place with minimal fuss.

The Headset

On first inspection the Elite 800x is a sleek sturdy looking headset, with just enough Xbox Green to compliment the standard Turtle Beach black. It doesn’t » Continue Reading.

Constructor HD coming next year

Constructor HD

Cast your minds back 18 years and you might recall a city building management game created by System 3 called Constructor. It was a popular title, especially on PC, with a wonderfully unique personality that set it apart from the likes of Sim City.

Well next year, the long rumoured Constructor HD will see a release, and it’ll be hitting Xbox One.

Back in the day, the PlayStation release saw a lot of compromises to get the title to work on the platform. The PC version’s online features weren’t present, the visuals were knocked down slightly, loading was lengthy, and the save file filled an entire memory card. These are issues we won’t be seeing with Constructor HD, hopefully.

Blast mode revealed for Star Wars Battlefront

Star-Wars-Battlefront

Blast has been revealed as Star Wars Battlefront’s multiplayer deathmatch mode.

Rebel forces must kill off the Imperial team in 10v10 battles – the battle is over when one team hits 100 kills or after 10 minutes of gameplay has passed, and the team with the most kills wins.

 

One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth. My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.

Dennis Brännvall, Lead Level Designer.

There are several weapon pickups strewn across each map in Blast – I wonder if there will be a hidden lightsabre! The close-quarters nature of each level has been designed specifically for Blast – they aren’t just smaller sectioned off versions of the larger maps that are part of one of Battlefront’s other game modes.

Star Wars Battlefront releases November 17 – with members of EA Access getting early access prior to launch.

Ubisoft announce Zombi for Xbox One

ZOMBI_Logo

Ubisoft have just announced the development of Zombi, an upgrade of the highly acclaimed survival-horror game.

Originally a Wii U flagship title in 2012, Zombi challenges players to see how long they can survive in a zombie-ridden London.

For the second time in history, the city has been shrouded in a fog of death, as the great plague returns. Leaving thousands dead, or infected by an illness more gruesome than death, this fear-fuelled first person shooter tasks the player to survive in such horrific and chaotic scenarios, armed with only the bug-out bag on their back, containing important items such as first aid kits, tools, maps, and more.

But they must be careful, as when their character dies, they die for good, and they are then in charge of a brand new survivor, and must go hunt for their old, infected character. If they are successful, they then have the opportunity to recover their old bug-out bag, but do they risk the chance of being infected again?

Xbox One zombie hunters will be able to experience the oppressive and intense Zombi, when it releases as a digital download on August 18.

Zombi is also releasing on Playstation 4 and PC on the same day.
