  • Xbox One Update Allows Custom Gamerpics, Co-Streaming Via Mixer
    Bald Bouncer
    The latest Xbox One firmware update comes with quite the bevy of features. The main appeal seems to be custom Gamerpics which is a fancy word for allowing users to upload their own profile pictures. These can be uploaded from an Xbox One, Windows 10 PC or your smartphone. Keep in mind that your picture should adhere to the Code of Conduct since all users will be able to see it.


    The July update also allows Mixer users to co-stream, which means that up to four players on their...

    Bald Bouncer
    Brand new footage for the upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 game Crackdown 3 was released today. It’s 10 minutes of free roaming gameplay, meaning we get to see the style of free form action that made the games cult classics to begin with, and we also get to see some brand new abilities, as well as the Black Hole Gun.





    That’s not all, either- the footage is running on the Xbox One X, so we get to see what is likely to be the system’s showcase launch...

  • Xbox One X Benchmarks Reveal How Existing Games Will Perform At 4K Resolutions
    Bald Bouncer
    We’ve heard so much about how powerful the Xbox One X is- but ultimately, the best demonstration of that is seeing it in action for ourselves, and understanding how it is working behind the scenes, if we cant. Most gamers can’t, of course- but the fine folks at Digital Foundry can, and they posted a lengthy video explaining how games perform on the Xbox One X versus the existing Xbox One S.


    According to the analysis, Forza 7 uses up 77.8% of the GPU power in the original Xbox...

  • Crackdown 3 seems to be an average (or possibly below average) looking game
    Bald Bouncer
    It’s going to feel a bit comfortable for many Crackdown veterans excited to get back into the improved world that is Crackdown 3. With its artistic style, insanely fun weapons and explosions, and fun characters, this is definitely a game for those who’ve been wanting leave the critically panned Crackdown 2 in the shadows, and remember the glory days of the original Crackdown. But don’t get too ahead of yourself, this E3 had the gameplay set on the story mode. So all of that massive city destruction...

  • Halo 6 – 343 Industries Ensures That It Will Have Its ‘Grand Moments’ Again
    Bald Bouncer
    People were amazed at the complete and total lack of Halo at E3 this year. With Microsoft and Xbox relying so heavily on the first person shooter franchise, people expected there to be news of Halo 6 at this year’s conference. Developers 343 Industries, however, have assured fans that while we didn’t hear of where the franchise is headed in the future, we will soon enough, and that the team is working hard on whatever is next.


    “So this year’s E3 was still awesome and special...

  • ‘We Have Something For Everyone,’ Says ID@Xbox Boss

    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 provides independent developers with a welcoming and supportive platform. And that is something that the head of Xbox’s indie game initiative ID@Xbox is really proud of.

    “I’m very, very proud of what we’ve done with ID@Xbox, opening up and allowing all sorts of experience to come to the platform, all corners of the spectrum of ideas,”ID@Xbox Europe boss Agostino Simonetta said to Eurogamer. “So yes, it’s great to have titles like Inside and Astroneers and Raiders of the Broken Planet or Rime – those titles are very, very important, they increase our awareness, because you guys love them, everybody loves them, but it’s important as well to have a varied portfolio.

    “I think it’s about the mix. I think it’s about the broad range of experiences, rather than focusing on the pillar titles, or one title in particular. You always want titles people are excited about, we love those titles because it’s a way to round people up around the message that you’re giving, but I think it’s more about the balance of the portfolio that you have. Today, we really have something for everybody. You go from Snake Pass, which I will be playing with my daughters, to Path of Exile, which my daughters won’t be able to play! And then you have an old-style adventure game from one of the founders of the genre, Ron Gilbert, and then you have games like Aaero.”

    Independent games do ultimately provide for kinds of experiences that the AAA market simply cannot account for- they flesh out a system’s library, and add depth and dimension to it. It is good to see Microsoft have embraced this segment of the market.
