Last year’s Game Awards debuted a ton of new games: The Order 1886, Until Dawn, Lara Croft & the Temple of Osiris,Tacoma,Adrift,King’s Quest and Human Element all saw premieres at the Game Awards. This year, not much has changed, as host Geoff Keighley confirmed on Twitter that the event would have “ten world premieres”.
Not as big! Rounder! Red ring of deathier! Project Gotham Racing 4! The Xbox 360 had it all, and faceplates to spare. It’s been ten years since the Xbox 360 launched. Ten years of highs and lows. And it was easily my favourite console of the time, as it dominated the industry like no other console did before it.
Master Chief wears his trusty Mjolnir armour, Spartan Locke has a more organic set of equipment strapped onto him and Cortana walks around buck-naked like that drunk uncle who ruined your wedding. And that’s kind of weird.
Next month, any game listed in the Xbox 360 section for Games With Gold, will be compatible on Xbox One when the console starts running some old school emulation from November 12. Which means that in November, you’ll have four games to choose from.
Last week, Amazon leaked details on an upcoming season pass for Rise of the Tomb Raider, with new details surfacing today. Sadly, there’s no Michael Caine content, so my dreams of that crossover are deader than my SA Idols ambitions. Here’s what you’ll be getting inside that season pass.
One of the best Xbox One (COUGH! And PC and Xbox 360 COUGH!) exclusives, Titanfall had something which the console was sorely lacking in the early days. And now, that game has crossed the ten million mark.
April 5 is when the game is finally out however, as the Remedy Entertainment developed title is another example of a studio creating something at their own pace. And according to Remedy, every second was needed to create Quantum Break.
Just about every game these days has a season pass of some sort up their sleeves, and it looks like the Lara Croft sequel to the smash hit 2013 game, is no exception as a Rise of The Tomb Raider expansion has been spotted in the wilds of the net.
Swords! Sorcery! Dragons! Beats by Dr Dre! Scalebound sounds like a great idea for a game, one that might finally give Xbox the chance to actually sell a few Xbox One consoles in Japan. But it was also a very different game when it was first pitched.
I’ve always been a fan of the Halo aesthetic. That over-designed armour, gentle light trails and weirdly organic machinery of the Covenant forces. They say a picture says a thousand words, so according to my maths, there’s 78 000 worth of them in the gallery below.
