There are a few spoilers in this article for Middle-earth: Shadow of War so if you don’t want to be surprised by some stuff in the game because you haven’t gotten to it yet – this might be a good article to skip.
Shadow Of War just came out on the 10th of October and I know a lot of people are having a LOT of fun with it. At first the game can be a tad overwhelming because there are so many things to do – but if you’ve finished the main game itself or you are curious about DLCs coming soon, this article is for you.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War at the end of the game you are attacked by ORCS who want to reclaim the fortress that you overtook earlier in the story. When you begin to battle the orcs, the story ends... Read More
God of Light is developed by EON Games and published by Playmous. While it was originally made to be a mobile App game it has slowly evolved into something else entirely – an actual Xbox game! I am really happy to see more of these ingenious, interesting and fun puzzle games coming out.
While I love all the games I own, sometimes you just want to relax, kick back and play something, I don’t know, fun. God of Light has some pretty good graphics, sound and game play as an app game, but rev it up to play it on the Xbox One and you get a remastered edition with even better graphics, better audio, and its easier and more fun to play.
Essentially God of Light: Remastered Edition is a physics-based puzzle game... Read More
This took me a TON of time to write and get together!
Earlier this year we heard a lot of chatter about a new Dragon Ball FighterZ game coming out. I know a lot of people personally who were incredibly happy to hear about this, but now that is been confirmed for the last few months, people are pretty much going bonkers about the idea of the game.
“The game play borrows concepts from several other fighting games, primarily the Marvel vs. Capcom series’ control scheme and team mechanics. Players each select three characters to form a team. One character is controlled, and can be switched with one of the other characters at any time. Players can also call one of their other characters to perform an “Assist” move, allowing simultaneous attacks and combos with the entire team... Read More
Sea Of Thieves isn’t even out yet but already, Dark Horse has started to create and design a really nice art book for the game. The book is going to be called The Art Of Sea Of Thieves. Dark Hose is one of those publishing companies that is sort of known for publishing graphic novels and comic books.
I know a lot of people I talk to STILL do not know what this game is nor have they heard about it! Dude. You’re missing out. Its Pirates! Here’s a little synopsis you can find from Gamers Elite about the game and then hopefully that will get you more excited about the art book!
“Sea of Thieves is a pirate-themed action-adventure cooperative multiplayer game played from a first-person perspective... Read More
Today, I want to talk a little bit about options for an external hard drive for Xbox One. Before that though, a little backstory.
I remember when I had my Xbox 360. I think it came with 20 GB and I thought, oh, this will last me awhile. It filled up in a week! I then purchased an internal 500gb drive and even then after owning the 360 for a few years, I had to keep making the “keep or delete” decision.
Finally, when I got my Xbox One it came with a 500gb drive. I knew that while this was a good amount of space, the games that dev’s create today versus the ones on the 360 from years ago, simply were much larger than they ever were before.
Even by going now to my Xbox One games – if you look at games like Sonic its like 567mb lol. Look at Forza Horizon 3 its like 56 GBs... Read More
Everywhere you look today you see Assassin’s Creed Origins. Ubi REALLY wants to make sure that this game is purchased by as many people as possible, and I don’t blame them. It takes a lot of money, heart and time to make a game like this so you want to make sure that YOU can make it as successful as you possibly can.
Beyond just ads on YouTube, Sponsored ads on Facebook, Articles in gamer magazines, etc Ubi has also created a Live Stream of their game. The Live stream for Assassin’s Creed Origins was almost 2 HOURS long! This is pretty much unheard of, but I get it, you want to really hype people up and get them to see that all of this marketing and hype that is being put out by the team is not just a bunch of bupkis...

The Overwatch event for Halloween is still going on, but in the meantime Blizzard has made a few changes and added an Overwatch Update for all platforms. While most of the update just adds a few changes to the game itself, there is also an adjustment to Mercy to further balance the character.
Following Mercy’s redevelopment in September, Blizzard is continuing to experiment with extra modifications to Mercy. With this brand-new patch, her Ultimate, Valkyrie, no longer impacts the cool-down of Resurrection. Rather, Valkyrie renders a 2nd charge of Resurrect, permitting her to possibly revive teammates back to back. This charge only lasts for the length of Valkyrie, and the end result is that she can use Resurrect fewer times than she could formerly.
According to Blizzard:
“This method makes... Read More
So last night I still did not get the Xbox One update. I decided to go to my settings, device, and updates available. There it was just sitting there! According to Xbox the Xbox One update was very small, took about 15 minutes to download, apply and verify the update. Thankfully after the update and after the Xbox restarted it actually DID restart. No issues there!
If you have not received your update, check settings and updates, it should be sitting there like mine was!
I will say that I like the menu’s a lot more; its more convenient and quicker to see what you want to see. And it seems like my system is running faster since the Xbox One update.
However, and I don’t know if anyone else had issues, I also kept having a few bugs here and there... Read More
A lot of people had complaints about the expansion packs on Battlefield 1. But, honestly I think if you owned previous games in the series you would know that they timed everything just right.
Battlefield 1 came out on October 21st 2016 and I think the rest followed in a proper amount of time. Even if it was just a free map – or an expansion pass:
||Fog of War, Rent a Server
||New map set in the Battle of the Selle
||Ribbons, Max Class Rank 50, Elite Codex
|They Shall Not Pass
||Mar 14/28th 2017
||France faction added
||May 2017 (expected)
||Repairable AA, Many Bug Fixes
|In the Name of the Tsar
Over the past few weeks Gamers Elite has written about a few new features that will start to appear on Xbox One. These features were only for insiders, but now these features will start to roll out today for everyone.
The update will now allow us to customize our home screens by letting us choose what we want to see when we boot the Xbox One up.
The update will also now allow you to have 40 pins to your dashboard area and we can now have a choice between a light and a high contrast “theme” for the entire interface.
The guide layout is also being updated which should make it easier for you to jump between your friends list, apps, games and return to the home screen.
Screen dimming is also a new feature and keeps your TV from screen ghosting... Read More
