Microsoft has announced its Xbox Games With Gold titles for May 2017. The line-up might not be as blockbuster-packed as previous months, there are some good offerings to be had. For Xbox One, there is Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Director’s Cut, an indie platformer that’s surprisingly fun. It’s available from May 1st to 31st. Then there’s Lara Croft and The Temple of Osiris, an isometric action adventure title that supports co-op and features everyone’s favourite Tomb Raider. It’s...22-04-2017, 02:16 PM

Xbox has made massive strides in providing a supportive environment for independent game developers - while it blazed the trail in this area with the Xbox 360, it had begun to fall behind by the end of the generation, especially as rival Sony and even Nintendo caught up. With the introduction of the Xbox One, it seemed as though Microsoft was hell bent on burning bridges with a community it had once fostered.
That was then- things have improved massively since then, and Xbox...19-04-2017, 12:45 AM
It’s the middle of April and that means more free games for Xbox One users subscribed to Xbox Live Gold. Thank to Games With Gold and backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games, you get two big games to play (not including Ryse: Son of Rome which is available till April end).
For Xbox One, there’s The Walking Dead: Season Two which continues Clementine’s tumultuous journey in the post-apocalyptic, zombie-ridden world. Though not quite as highly rated as the first season,...17-04-2017, 04:49 PM
The Xbox Scorpio was finally revealed to some degree yesterday – we know what the specs and performance gains for the new system will be, but we don’t yet know the final name, release date, or even what the console looks like – which means Microsoft now no longer has to speak in tantalizing vague hints, and can instead speak to users directly about the fruits of their labor.
Speaking to fans directly on Twitter yesterday, Microsoft’s Head of Product Development Albert Penello...08-04-2017, 02:30 PM
Undead Labs’ open world zombie sandbox title State of Decay 2 will be huge. In a recent blog post, the developer announced that the game would have three maps at launch and each would be “roughly the size of the original.”
The maps themselves will also be quite varied. “You should expect to see slightly different environments, definitely different landmarks and locations, different layouts lending themselves to different strategies, unique home sites, and even different mission...06-04-2017, 01:38 PM

Xbox Scorpio Reveal Will Have Positive Surprises, But No Price AnnouncementJez Corden, the insider who revealed that the Xbox Scorpio reveal would be coming this week way before it was officially confirmed, took to Twitter to share some more information about exactly what Microsoft fans can expect from tomorrow’s grand unveil.
On the whole, you can expect good news - Corden said that there will be positive surprises, in response to multiple fans, before emphasising, “Not gonna wreck it for Eurogamer, but expect huge, positive surprises on Thursday. Xbox fans will be elated by the findings, I think.” This seems to imply that from a hardware perspective, if nothing else, the Scorpio may indeed be exactly what a lot of Xbox fans may be wishing for it to be.
On the other hand, don’t go around expecting an announcement of the price just yet- speaking on Twitter, Corden confirmed that that’s probably not happening just yet. It makes sense, that’s probably something Microsoft wants to save for E3- E3 is a bigger audience, it gives them time to gauge reactions to tomorrow’s unveil and decide from there, and it means Sony has less time to counter with pre-emptive price drops and bundling.
We’ll keep you posted on all the Scorpio news, so make sure to stay tuned!
