When 2K made the decision, last year, to release XCOM 2 exclusively for PC, I thought it was a bold move. Whilst I understood the series’ PC heritage, the 2013 series reboot, XCOM: Enemy Unknown did very well on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Continue reading XCOM 2 Xbox One review
It took only a few minutes of play to realise the biggest difference between EA’s Battlefield 1 and your run-of-the-mill first-person shooter. Whereas warfare in the last handful of Call of Duty games has been portrayed as an awesome and exciting spectacle, The Great War, as bought to life in Battlefield 1 is nothing of the sort.

It seems that EA Sports have saved the best until last with FIFA 17. I’ll be honest, whilst I enjoy the FIFA games immensely, reviewing iterative sports titles can sometimes be a chore. Continue reading FIFA 17 shoots and scores!
EA Sports gets us back on the ice for some fast and brutal ice hockey action in NHL 17.
Switching from the comparatively sedate, but no less exciting, pace of Madden NFL 17 to the frantic madness of NHL 17 was a bit jarring at first. Mending the thrills of FIFA with the contact of Madden and the brutality of UFC, the NHL games are a guilty pleasure of mine. Continue reading A return to form for EA Sports NHL 17
I don’t know about you, when I think of PC headsets, I don’t usually think of Dell. But, after a couple of weeks with Dell’s AE2 I can really say, you’d be wrong not to.
