Peter Molyneux becomes a chef (in my head)

Peter Molyneux becomes a chef (in my head)

Feb 16, 2015

As I stand outside in the soggy crowd, ineffectively thrusting my hands further into my pockets in reaction to the rain-flecked wind, I think back to when it first began. Poor Peter Molyneux, hounded from the games industry simply because he repeatedly produced videogames that bore little resemblance to what he promised. Shortly before that, he realised that it...

Why you should buy an Xbox One. Or a PS4. Or maybe a Wii U.

Like many (most?) people, I was determined to never purchase an Xbox One after its disastrous reveal event. Not much has changed to the machine since then – apart from the removal of the demand for an internet connection, the removal of the demand for Kinect to be plugged in, the removal of Kinect from the box altogether, the removal of the emphasis on “TV...

Guesses for what’s on show this year should be easy enough to correctly assume. Microsoft will be...

Microsoft drops U.S. RRP of official 360 microphone

Aug 22, 2012

The magic of 21st Century gaming. What better reason to buy an Xbox 360 than to shout across the room at your TV, having your voice commands recognised precisely fifty percent of the time as you struggle to match the exact inflections used by videogame QA testers? This crazy ‘microphone’ idea could only possibly be improved if there were, one day,...

Xbox 360 Conference: June 4th 5:30pm GMT   It’s that time of year again when I sit here blathering away about the nonsense that goes on at each of these E3 conferences and each year it seems more and more pointless when everything gets ‘leaked’ in the days leading up to the event. Anyway, I hope there isn’t so much Kinect this year, as...
