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... Read More
This year at E3 2017 we got a good glimpse of the new Forza Motorsport 7 coming out in 2017. Granted I hardly play these Motorsport games, I do have a few in my collection. While I will not be pre-ordering this one, because I have too many other pre-orders, I will be getting it down the line. Earlier I did a car list on Forza Motorsport 7 you can check that out here
Forza Motorsport 7 Car List
The list includes the most recent cars released by Turn 10 and its updated so definitely check that out.
Summary: “Forza Motorsport 7 is an upcoming racing video game developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios. The game is scheduled to launch on Windows and Xbox One in October 2017. It will serve as the tenth installment in the Forza series... Read More
One of the things I really love about racing games is the fact that they are all different and all cater to different people. Need For Speed, for instance, is known for death defying physics, drifting, and the ability to crash into other cars or police cars. Forza Motorsport, for me, is more about the rigid structure of a real race – staying between the lines, not going off the track – I find it to be more serious when it comes to gaming revolving around cars. But if you think Need For Speed and Forza Motorsport are the only driving and racing games, you are sadly mistaken!
In fact, there are a ton of racing games coming out in 2017, but there are 3 you might not be aware of... Read More
Ever since E3 2017, everyone has been asking the same question: When Will The Xbox One X Be Available For Pre-Order?!!!?
Well, we finally just got an answer from the answer man himself; Phil Spencer. Or as I like to call him “Hand Man” haha. Sorry, Phil!
According to Phil their entire plan for the Xbox One X is already underway; they know exactly when they will be allowing it for pre-order, now they are just going through the works trying to figure out who gets what first, who gets pre-order information first, and all that very un-fun stuff, so in the meantime, Phil just wants you to sit back and relax and know that it IS coming soon!
One of the best and biggest features the Xbox One X is offering is 4K capabilities even if your tv is not a 4K tv... Read More
One of the things that PlayStation 4 players always say is that on Xbox we don’t have enough Xbox One Exclusive Games. While that may be true, I do have to say that the ones we DO have I graciously appreciate and love. Here are just a few of the upcoming Xbox One Exclusive Games you have to look forward to as an Xbox One player. Also included, Trailers, Pre-Order information and summaries about the games 🙂
I wrote about Crackdown 3 in a previous article here.
If you have not played the other Crackdown games I seriously suggest you buy them NOW! This is another one of my all-time favorite series. I first got into it while playing with my significant other and we always had such a blast playing this series... Read More
The Sims 4 has been available on PC since 2014, but Xbox players always had to just do without it. Well! Not anymore! The Sims 4 will be available on Xbox One in November! As of right now, there are no pre-order options available but I am sure in the next coming months we will see some options available.
“Originally announced on May 6, 2013, and was released in North America on September 2, 2014, for Microsoft Windows. A Mac compatible version of the software was made available for digital download on February 17, 2015. The Sims 4 is the first PC game to top all-format charts in two years. The game has received mixed reviews since its release. Since its launch, it became the best selling PC game of 2014 and 2015. The Sims 4 has sold over 5 million copies worldwide.”
Supposedly there will... Read More
It used to be that when people mentioned a 2d scrolling game, it was a throwback game ie; a retro gamer. These days, however, it seems like everytime a new game comes out it has the chance of becoming a 2d titled scroller.
There is a new “trend” out now though that is starting to be a comeback; and its a welcome one, 3d platformers. These types of games are built around a giant world to explore, lots of unique locations, and they give you the ability to go on a new adventure every time. If you like 3d platformer games or enjoy the nostalgia of these types of games, these are just a few that you should consider playing and buying!
Super Mario Odyssey
Yea yea, it was pretty obvious this one was going to be on the list... Read More
In late 2016 and early 2017 – especially during E3, we were made aware of some of the racing games that would be coming out for consoles and PC. I thought this would be a great time to make a list of the best car racing games in 2017. This, as you know, is one of my favorite genres to play, and it was definitely a fun one to write as well! All of the games below are a mix of both sim racing, as well as arcade games. Not only is the best car racing games in 2017 list a list of games that I like or would like to play, but they are also on this list because of features, cars available, tracks available, graphics and more!
Need For Speed Payback
I am really looking forward to this game! Usually, they release a game once a year but they missed the last few years... Read More
Do I love FPS? Hell YES. One game I kept looking at (before it was announced) was Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. Originally released for the PC and not consoles, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has become an increasingly popular game. In fact, its not only a popular game but its sold literally millions of copies since being released on PC. According to the game’s Director, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has sold 4 million copies in just 3 months time! That’s pretty crazy if you think about it. To put it into monetary value – that equals around $120M. In 3 months!
Not only have they sold a truckload of games, but its also popular in other media streams as well. For instance, on Twitch, its the 2nd most watched game on the entire site. The first being League Of Legends.

I remember seeing this game at the Microsoft E3 Press Conference – it looks like a really fun game and its an Xbox One Exclusive Game!
At first glance, you will notice that Super Lucky’s Tale has an almost Sonic/Crash Bandicoot look to it in terms of the character. The game also plays a lot like these 2 games plus Super Mario which is always welcome in my book. If you’re tired of playing Mass Effect, COD, Battlefield or whatever other game and you just want to sit back and relax and enjoy a fun game; Super Lucky’s Tale is the game for you.
Game Summary: Welcome to Adventure! “Super Lucky’s Tale” is a delightful, playground platformer for all ages that follows Lucky, the ever-optimistic, energetic, and lovable hero, on his quest to find his inner strength and help his sister rescue the Boo... Read More
