Xbox 360

What's old is new. At least, that's the saying. While some people have already jumped into the new generation, and others (like Darryn) have even abandoned the old generation consoles, many people are still playing the newest games on PS3 and Xbox 360. Our best game for old consoles certainly makes them feel new once more.

2014 is most likely the final year for any cross-console games. It’s a transition that we’ve gone through before, from the PlayStation 1 and N64 days, all the way up to the latest devices as players hop from PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One. As you might imagine, there’s always going to be a gap between games released across generations. But right now, that divide is simply massive.

Press weren’t allowed access to Ubisoft’s The Crew until the game was live. It’s been out for over a week now, so people are able to properly assess Ubisoft’s online, cross-country driving game. The Crew was released on December 2 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Here’s what those who’ve played it think of the game.

Dragon: Age Inquisition is a pretty good game, if you’re not the sort who prefers RPG’s featuring spiky pink-haired androgynous lead characters. Unfortunately, there are still a couple of issues that are preventing it from being a wholly incredible experience. It’s getting a patch today – but it unfortunately doesn’t fix the issue that’s making the game a little soulless for me right now.

I’ve spent many a happy hour shooting people on both Pandora and Elpis in the Borderlands universe. I was particularly chuffed with all the core DLC that Borderlands 2 got – well, at least 2 of them. The Torque and Tiny Tina campaigns were well worth the extra money, and almost made me forget how underwhelming those other two were. Pre-Sequel is taking a different approach to their additional content. The first gave players the opportunity to play as a Handsome Jack clone. The second has just been announced, and it’s called The Holodome Onslaught. Basically, it’s a new challenge arena.

Ubisoft’s open world racer The Crew is out, to little fanfare. Unlike some other great big social racing games, this one almost works as promised. That said, that doesn’t mean it's safe from the current scourge of day one patches. If you’re one of the handful of die-hard racing fans who’ve already purchased The Crew, then you’ve probably already been subjected to the patch. If you’re still on the fence, then just know that you’ll have to do some downloading before you get started.

The business of November has finally simmered down and the video game industry is just about ready to call it a year. But not until the Video Game Awards take place this week, with a number of games taking to the stage and handful of new ones ready to make their debut. But Microsoft have seemingly closed shop already, confirming that nothing new will be shown at the event.

[Update] It's mostly back online. If you’re in South Africa and you’re trying to connect to Xbox Live right now, you have a problem; you’re playing games when you should be working. Right now though, it’s prime night gaming time in the US – and Xbox Live is very much down. The usually rock-solid service is currently on its knees – with that jolly group of hackers (Or script kiddies, if you like) – Lizard Squad – taking credit for its issues.

Blink and the year just disappears. We are in December already! It’s the perfect time to wind down and take a break, and by break, I mean play games! It’s also the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends, without the pressure of work and hopefully life in general. Why not combine the best of both worlds and spend some holiday time getting lost in co-op gaming? The folks from King Price Insurance have asked us to round up some top co-op titles you can pick up this festive season.

With December just around the corner, most of the big games are out. There’s very little left to still be released, with just Ubisoft’s The Crew coming next week as far as real new releases go. Barring all of the stuff you’ll be buying on sale over the next few days, you’ve likely made your gaming purchases for the year.

We told you what PlayStation owners would be getting in December, and now we look at December’s Games for Gold. While they’re not straight up terrible games, the list of free titles for subscribers next month is a little…underwhelming – especially when sat next to The PlayStation Plus Instant Game collection for December. Loyal Microsoft adherents will be getting Worms.

It's common for games to receive a lengthy hype period leading up to it's eventual launch. That's what gets people excited and clambering for the game on release day, even if the wait feels excruciating. Telltale seemingly missed that class during Game Design 101, as they've decided to launch their take on the Borderlands universe right now.
