Easily the Crackdown of the Xbox One. Really, MS, stop dropping the ball with open world games. Had a total blast with this game, can't believe you dumped Insomniac.

As long as we allow games to change their set out maps and 'nerf' classes to their hearts content until it becomes a different game and eventually abandoned by users, probably, worst case scenario. Most people seem unusually happy with that. Gaming to be is all about the single player experience and solely focusing on anything else is a devolution of what developers have achieved, especially art departments and narrative.

Difference is you can't patch a bad sing...

The problem is that they did. If you look back last gen, we basically had two choices, Mario or Ratchet and Clank. So basically Ratchet and Clank was solely keeping the platformer alive on non-Nintendo platforms and I commend Insomniac for that hefty task.

Good, that means a sequel.

I have tried VorpX for a few titles and DOOM was one of those that worked fantastically well, except for a few screen cropping, menu and HUD issues. But it's no good putting the gestures or controls in if the game isn't built FOR VR. A lot of games are virtually unplayable with VorpX because they map the headset to what should be the movement of the mouse, this means that you aim the crosshair with your head in games whilst still being able to look around and this is seriously confusi...

Can't wait for both of these. Serious Sam FE and SE VR proved that VR core games can be a thing instead of simple on-rails shooters with the occasional teleporting (which is usually shoehorned in awkwardly because most people can't process moving whilst being stood still or making smaller movements than onscreen) instead of controller based locomotion. I honestly prefer locomotion, despite the occasional sickness after 4 hours or so of playing.

Even though I have ab...

I view the rise of online gaming much like board-gaming such as Cluedo or Monopoly, limited pieces and left to play with them. In my honest opinion, online gaming such as CoD, DayZ, PUBG, Overwatch (or whatever game is the fad of the month). It's a step back from what we achieved with making games cinematic and more focused, most would say linear, but you don't hear people saying that a movie or a book is linear.
It also gives a chance to flesh out a world with focused artis...

Brilliant sequel, a mix of Jak and Daxter and God of War, this time done right. Incredible sense of scale, brilliant pacing, really keeps you on your toes near the end.

Wouldn't mind another sequel.

Finished it today, whole lot of fun, top notch platforming. GoW for pre-teens, with Jak and Daxter traits but in a good way. Surprisingly good sequel. MUCH better than the first. Wouldn't mind a third.

Well, looks like I'm buying a Switch after all. Love me some Travis Touchdown. Not sure how it'll work without the Wiimote, that was half the experience and that terrible (but always funny) recharging visual gag.

A lot of people have a go at Halo Masterchief Collection, but it is an amazingly good collection of ports/remakes. It not only has the stellar (as mentioned here) Halo Anniversary, but great upscaled versions of Halo 2, 3, the fairly decent 4 and (if you got it free as part of the compensation for original state of the game package or buy it) Halo: ODST.

It really is the finest package of Halo before Halo forgot what it was at Halo 5.

Enjoyed the first one for what it was. It was no Ratchet and Clank or Jak and Daxter, but hopefully we can delve more into the mythos and generally grow up a little from the world of the first one.

Blimey, didn't realise what slim pickings we had after Knack 2.

Screw Gears, want to see some Crackdown (3) if not release date, an unexpected Sunset Overdrive 2 wouldn't hurt either.

Can't wait, also for the movie.

Nice one.

Never understood why Point Blank missed 2 gens, aside from the DS port.

I mean, we had the Move and Kinect last gen, LBP leading the way with quickly made creator content.

I mean, wouldn't Point Blank editing your own stages and targets out of photos be the greatest thing?

I swear, Namco are missing out on one here.

Oh good! Shadow Complex is one of the best exclusive games on XBLA. Be sad just to let it die on people's 360 harddrives.

EDIT: Geometry Wars 2 too? Oh you shouldn't have! In this case can't wait for the update!

Yeah, because threatening Jeff Minter of Tempest 2000 for Llamasoft's TxK is a great way to 'do things right'.
