To once again step through the barrier of reality and encounter the twisted and dark part of the human mind, the part the makes you feel itchy and uncomfortable when encountering something you know you should not be. This is the feeling the creators of The Evil Within 2 have worked so hard to achieve, to create an experience truly uncomfortable and yet compelling.
The game came out of nowhere at this years Bethesda E3 conference and took the audience on a fantastic journey with its outstanding trailer. The team at Tango Gameworks and the legendary Shinji Makami have once again delivered a game that is not only dark and twisted, but pretty and graphically brilliant.
Fallout Shelter was released for iOS back in June 2015, which came as a shock for many Fallout fans. The game was then 2 months later for Android in August 2015. Since then the game has shot to fame and made a home on PC on July 2016 and finally Xbox One in February 2017.
The game has a huge following as a rather simply title and has changed quite a bit since it was first launched. Extra events were added to the game such as the mysterious stranger, Pets who boost you vault dwellers and Mr Handy who roam a floor collecting your resources for you. Quests were also added to the game, letting you take your dwellers out into the wasteland, exploring ruins and finding loot, resources and new dwellers to help boost your own vault.
Once again we take the accursed journey into the twisted and warped world of Dishonored. The steampunk setting mixed with the otherworldly magic makes the setting for a visually striking world that is just filled with revenge.
Death of the Outsider lets you take on the role of Billie Lurke(voiced by the wonderful Rosario Dawson), one of Dunwall's most notorious killers. Journey as this mysterious character and reunite with your former mentor Daud(voiced by the returning Michael Madsen), and the pair have 1 thing on their minds, to kill a god.
Ah 11/11/2011, the date etched into the minds of many a gamer. 6 Years ago we were riding the hype train on the way to the next ElderScrolls instalment set in the frozen north, Skyrim. We explored the harsh and frozen mountain terrain which lays the home of the Nords. 6 years later and we are still talking about the truly outstanding game, though we can do more than talk about it. Of course the biggest hurdle was when I upgraded to Xbox One; I couldn't take my Skyrim with me. Thankfully Xbox noticed the outcry and brought Skyrim: Special Edition to our platform, with enhanced graphics, lighting, all playable DLC and best of all MOD support.
The latest instalment in the Dishonored Franchise came as a pleasant surprise from the Bethesda E3 press conference, in fact one of the few pleasant surprises. The trailer was a nice action sequence backed by the hauntingly familiar soundtrack of the series which was a giveaway to any of the fans.
Now mere months after E3 we have this interesting title being released later this month and it available to pre-purchase today on Xbox One, simply follow this link to the Microsoft Store. Death of the Outsider is priced at £19.99, which indicates it is not a fully fleshed out title but hopefully the game will contain all the signature trademarks of the series which includes replay value.
