Exacerbated Xbox fans face second delay on exclusive

ReCore

Hot on the heels of Scalebound being pushed to 2017 we have wind of an announcement that ReCore has been pushed back to the end of the year. It will also be making its way to PC via windows 10 and is scheduled for this year too – erm… thats not how exclusives work people. come on.

ReCore will now release on both platforms during the ‘later half of 2016′, which may be upsetting to anyone who has been waiting for this one to come around, but isn’t a huge surprise as there has been no gameplay footage.

Lets hope the rest of Xbox One’s exclusives survive the start of the year as we don’t want to see our awesome list of games dwindle any further, or bottleneck their releases at the end of the year!

New Killer Instinct backstories unveils Spinal

Spinal-killer instinct

We are back again with more backstories from the great people over at Ultra-Combo, this time bringing you the walking curse that is known as Spinal.

In clearer moments, when the insanity of his ancient bane isn’t fully in control, Spinal remembers snippets of his previous existence, before he was cursed, when he was human, feared, and rich….

As I had missed the previous entry, Orchid, who was one of my favorite characters from the original game you can also read her story right here. These entries are in order that the characters were revealed and I am looking forward to the next two updates.
