The game’s five playable characters are members of House Forrester, a noble house of the North whom are loyal to the Starks. The family is scattered across the lands of Westeros and Essos, taking players to new and familiar locations.

The Jackbox Party Pack review (Xbox One)

The Jackbox Party Pack was developed and published by Jackbox Games. It was released on November 26, 2014 for $24.99. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Jackbox 1

With Christmas rapidly approaching, it may come as no surprise to see more and more party focused games begin to appear. Leading the way on Xbox One is Jackbox Games’ rather generous The Jackbox Party Pack, which features all three previous Jackbox releases, plus two (almost) entirely new games. Jackbox has built an excellent reputation primarily on the success of its standout title You Don’t Know Jack, the latest (2015) version of which is included in the here.

The Jackbox Party Pack promises the kind of risque laughs that have been made popular in recent years by accessible, engaging tabletop games like Cards Against Humanity. Achieving the kind of belly laughter that these board games provide on a console has always been challenging, and often disastrous – let’s find out if Jackbox have got the balance right.

Game of Thrones review hub (Xbox One)


Welcome to the Game of Thrones review hub. Here we’ll collect our reviews for the individual episodes of the season as they are released. Once the season is complete, we’ll update this page to include a full review of the whole experience, as well as a final score. Check out the reviews for the currently available episode(s) below.

  • Episode 1: Iron from Ice — “whilst this episode shows a lot of promise for the rest of the season, it is generally uneventful in isolation”
  • Episode 2: The Lost Lords
  • Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness
  • Episode 4: Sons of Winter
  • Episode 5: A Nest of Vipers
  • Episode 6: The Ice Dragon

Game of Thrones, a Telltale Games Series, is taking shape as a companion series which will entwine itself with both the excellent HBO live action show and the original George R. R. Martin books by telling the tale of the barely mentioned Stark bannermen known as House Forrester. The first season begins at the Red Wedding, so Telltale is expecting players to have progressed at least to the end of Season 3 of the HBO show – for anyone new to the world of Game of Thrones, we strongly recommend that you get up to date before beginning your playthrough or you’ll really miss out.


Tales from the Borderlands review hub


Welcome to the Tales from the Borderlands review hub. Here we’ll collect our reviews for the individual episodes of the series as they are released. Once the series is complete, we’ll update this page to have a full review of the entire series. Check out the reviews for the currently available episode(s) below.

  • Episode 1: Zer0 Sum — “an amazing start to the series, worth a try if you love Borderlands or just love a good story”
  • Episode 2: Atlas Mugged (coming soon)
  • Episode 3: Catch A Ride! (coming soon)
  • Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo (coming soon)
  • Episode 5: The Vault of the Traveler (coming soon)

Tales from the Borderlands is Telltale’s take on the Borderlands universe created by Gearbox Software. The game ditches its FPS roots, trading its deadly guns for cutting words. The series takes place after the events of Borderlands 2, showing players for the first time what life on Pandora is like after the fall of Handsome Jack. The game is told as a flashback, as Hyperion employee Rhys and skilled con-artist Fiona recall their adventures and continually embellish the truth.


Minecraft gets Star Wars skins


Available now, in a galaxy not far, far away — Star Wars skins come to Minecraft. There are 55 total skins, which include characters from Episodes IV, V and VI (the good ones). Many of the skins are the main characters in different outfits, like Luke Skywalker as an X-Wing pilot or as a Jedi Knight.  Some real gems include a rancor, wampa, Ponda Baba (the individual whom Obi-Wan Kenobi cuts the arm off of in the Mos Eisley Cantina), assassin droid IG-88 and many others you might need to look up, but are cool nevertheless.

This pack is available for $2.99 exclusively on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions review (Xbox One)

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions was developed by Lucid Games and published by Sierra. It was released on November 26, 2014 for $14.99. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is a punishing experience. It will destroy what faith you have left in yourself as a gamer. It will force you to try over and over in vain as you continue to fail. But just like Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (and its sequel) on Xbox Live Arcade, Geo Wars 3 will keep you coming back for more.

True story: I bought my first HDTV and an Xbox 360 after seeing Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved for the first time. So obviously, I’m a fan. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions improves just about everything in the original and adds a ton of new content. This is the third game in the series (not counting Geometry Wars: Galaxies on 3DS/Wii U, since most people don’t seem to count that game for whatever reason), and the first by new developer Lucid (and published by the recently resurrected Sierra). It is both a trip back in time and a look forward. What has stayed the same? Your little ship-like shape moves around in the now familiar twin-stick shooter style game, as you blast away other brightly colored ships and shapes on a stark black background filled with psychedelic effects and particle explosions. It’s only sort of retro, as nothing even remotely close to it could have been made back in the days of quarter-munching arcade machines. It’s addictive, and it’s hard. Very hard. So, what has changed? Quite a bit.

Microsoft went through 200 Xbox One controller prototypes

Xbox One Controller

On the surface, the Xbox One controller isn’t too different from its Xbox 360 predecessor: four face buttons, two triggers, a pair of bumpers, a couple of analog sticks, a d-pad, the Xbox Guide button and start and back button facsimiles. So designing it was probably a fairly simple task for Microsoft, right? Not exactly.

Carl Ledbetter is the man who led the team of 35 responsible for designing the Xbox One and its controller over a three-year period. In an interview with MCV, Ledbetter revealed that the console’s gamepad went through 200 prototypes that were tested by 1,100 people over a period of 500 hours.

“Nobody says anything about the little things on the hardware,” Ledbetter said. “If somebody is using the controller and after 30 minutes is saying ‘my hands are starting to hurt,’ then that’s a fail. But if after 30 minutes all they’re thinking about is the game, then we’re doing okay.”

Though most gamers and reporters have named rival Sony’s DualShock 4 as the new gold standard for gamepads, Microsoft’s Xbox One controller has been warmly received as well. Small but important changes from the 360 pad have resulted in an already comfortable design feeling even more satisfying in gamers’ hands. Complaints about aches and pains after 30 minutes of playing time have been virtually non-existent, making the design a success by Ledbetter’s standards.
