Xbox @ gamescom – DVR for Over-the-Air TV


Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will add live TV-recording to its suite of capabilities in 2016

You will be able to schedule recordings from your Xbox One or other Windows 10 device, stream to other devices in your home or download to watch on a Windows 10 device while on the go.

I’ve been looking forward to this feature for a while, shame I have to wait a bit longer…

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.

The Swindle release date announced


Size Five Games’ The Swindle launches this week.

The Swindle is a platforming, action and stealth game set in a Victorian steampunk world. All levels are procedurally generated, and it is the player’s job as a series of master thieves to break into buildings, steal cash, hack systems and get out. Players start small by robbing from the slums, and must upgrade their tools, abilities and skills until they can pull off the ultimate heist in Scotland Yard.

Dan Marshall, Founder of Size Five Games, had the following to say.


With The Swindle I wanted to design a completely new spin on the stealth and action experience whilst keeping true to a classic rogue like style experience. That was the kind of game that I always wanted to play but could never find. The reception we have already received has been incredible. I can’t wait to see people’s different heist set ups.

The Swindle is now available worldwide on other platforms, with an Xbox One arrival due this Friday.

Neverwinter: Strongholds trailer


Neverwinter: Strongholds – the seventh expansion for the action MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast is due for release.

Strongholds introduces the largest playable map released for Neverwinter and focuses on players banding together to take back a stronghold from the wild. The initial release will focus on player-versus-environment gameplay in order to allow guilds the opportunity to build their strongholds before taking the fight to other players when large scale player-versus-player content launches.

Reminiscent of early Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, Neverwinter: Strongholds empowers guilds to reclaim a keep and its surrounding wilderness areas from monsters. As the lands are cleared, guilds will build defenses both in and around their strongholds using structures like archer towers to fend off attackers, while building siege structures to increase their ability to wage war against enemy guilds. Once the keep has been secured, guilds will work to solidify their foothold along the ranges of the Sword Coast.

Neverwinter : Strongholds is due for PC launch on August 11th with an Xbox One release to follow shortly thereafter.
