Cuphead has been featured at a few of the E3 events, but it was in 2017, that they finally announced that Cuphead would be coming to Xbox One and PC this year. Since its release people have been buying the heck out of it and having a love hate relationship with the game (it is a difficult game to play, super challenging indeed!).
“On the fictional Inkwell Isle, Cuphead and his brother Mugman are two fun-loving kids who live under the watchful eye of Elder Kettle. Against the elder’s warnings, the brothers wander into the Devil’s Casino run by King Dice. When the brothers go on a winning streak, the casino’s manager King Dice calls upon the Devil who raises the stakes. If Cuphead and Mugman can win another time, they would own the entire casino. If not, the Devil would have their souls...
At E3 one of the things that people (including me!) were really excited about was the fact that Phil Spencer said that they not only would continue working on making more Xbox 360 titles backs compat, but that they were also working on another project for Xbox Original Backward Compatibility.
I knew I kept all those old games for a reason!
Since E3, we haven’t really heard anything more about this though. So is it still in the works? When can we expect it to happen?
According to Phil Spencer, they are still working on this project, and he expects that the Xbox original backward compatibility project will be coming in 2017. WOW. This is what Phil recently said about the Xbox original backward compatibility project:
“We’re close, we’re really close,” Spencer said when asked for the status o...
If you missed out on previous releases of the Xbox One X – now is the time to find it available again on Amazon. It will be available again today, but like last time, they will most likely get sold out VERY quickly.
Andddddd its out of stock! Sorry!!! As soon as its re-available, Gamers Elite will make yet another post!
Its the time we have ALL been waiting for. We can now download the Forza 7 Demo today for PC and Xbox One. I cannot wait to play this bad boy. I think its going to be a lot of fun, and from what I have seen from trailers and images, the game is a beaut.
As previously announced, both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC users will be able to play through 3 racing occurrences. This includes the Dubai circuit including the Jebel Hafeet Pass, as well as the Mugello circuit in Italy and the Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit. Players will be able to drive the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM on the former.
The Forza 7 demo, which is around 22.87GB, also includes the Porsche 911 GT2 RS which is on the game’s cover, and the Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck. I cannot wait to get into that Porsche!
Xbox One controllers (along with the console) is something you need in order to play your Xbox. But, if you are tired of the same old boring black or white options, you should be aware that there are special edition Xbox One controllers – and consoles. While we will be getting into the consoles later, I want to talk about the controllers now. Every year new special edition Xbox One controllers are released, but you may see some in this list that you have seen before!
Oh yes, this is JUST like mine, but this one is various colors of black and grey, whereas mine is various colors of brown and green. I actually really like this one and so does everyone else. Its on the best sellers list and usually is, has somewhere around 670 customer reviews and sits pretty at a 4...
State Of Decay is yet another game with a huge following. When the original State Of Decay featured back in 2013 I don’t really think people realized how big of a game it would be. It was after all, just zombies right? Wrong! At the time there were a few other Zombie games out there, but back in 2014 Undead Labs announced that 2 million copies of the game were sold and now in 2017 that number has gone up quite a lot, especially with #2 on the way. State Of Decay 2 will be released on Windows and Xbox one so essentially you could consider this an Xbox Exclusive. Here is a trailer for State Of Decay 2:
This is not just any zombies game. First off, its open world which means you have a ton of space to explore and find new challenges...
When I first heard that Crackdown 3 would be coming out (eventually) back in 2014 at E3 I was over the top excited! I mean this was a game that I played as much and followed as closely as any other series I loved. But Crackdown 1 and 2 were beaten pretty quickly by me so I was waiting for 3 to come out so I could continue the Crackdown journey.
Over the past 3 years we heard a lot of rumors at Gamers Elite about the new game coming out soon. Then, at E3 in 2017, it finally happened. Microsoft announced that Crackdown 3 would be coming to Xbox One, again as an exclusive, in 2017. I know that a lot of people were really excited to hear this – including me!
But, then earlier this month we had heard that, unfortunately, the game would be delayed...
So my assumptions were right, they did announce pre-orders for the Xbox One X at Games Com. Unfortunately people were so hyped for the console, that its already sold out in many places, including Amazon. Here are the places you can LOOK for it, but I cannot guarantee that you will actually be able to buy one.
Amazon (US — sold out) / Amazon (UK) Best Buy / non-Scorpio Edition [not live yet] GameStop / GameStop’s Elite controller bundle / extra controller bundle (sold out) Game (UK) JB Hi-Fi (AU) EB Games (AU) Microsoft Store / non-Scorpio Edition [not live yet] Target Walmart
The Xbox One X is launching World Wide on November 7th and I am sure stocks will be refilled soon...
Microsoft has mentioned at E3 that they will be releasing games that are enhanced in order to take advantage of the functionalities and capabilities of the Xbox One X. We haven’t really been informed as to how this is going to work.
Is everyone going to be able to buy Crackdown 3 and it just automatically looks better on the Xbox One X? Or will there be a separate edition for Xbox One/Xbox One S and Xbox One X? I guess we will find out more information at Games Com.
In the meantime this is a list collected by Gamers Elite at E3 and Games Com that were mentioned as “enhanced” games, the list is pretty nice so far, so have a look and see what you think!
I remember being on Xbox 360 and Microsoft supposedly would allow you to use the Windows Media Player app to play music in the background. The only problem was that it worked for some people and for others, such as myself, it did not work. I always thought it was kind of odd not allowing us to listen to music on our 360s while playing games. While I don’t ALWAYS like to listen to music while playing, specifically while playing FPS, I do like to listen to music while playing more relaxed games.
These days, you have a whole slew of music apps to use on Xbox One. One of the reasons I think its good that they have multiple options is because each app offers different music, features, you might already have a membership with one and want to transfer it over to Xbox, etc...
