Top 25 list

Posted on July 27, 2014 at 10:03 am

Considering the XBOX 360 has been out for over 8 years now, so trying to come up with the top 25 best ever XBOX 360 games is a tough one! We agree most with IGN’s top 25, it doesn’t include some of the best, because let’s face it, most people will have those already and there just isn’t room to have everything narrowed down to top 25. So this list is more of the games you just must have in your collection! First down to last, here we go:

  1. Mass Effect Trilogy
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. Halo 4
  4. Rock Band 3
  5. Portal 2
  6. The Orange Box
  7. Skyrim
  8. The Walking Dead: The Game
  9. Mirror’s Edge
  10. Batman: Arkham City
  11. BioShock
  12. BioShock Infinite
  13. Limbo
  14. Fallout 3
  15. Mark of the Ninja
  16. Dishonoured
  17. Red Dead Redemption
  18. Fez
  19. Forza 4
  20. Gears of War 3 – Epic Moments
  21. State of Decay
  22. Minecraft
  23. Rayman Legends
  24. Alan Wake

Alien: Isolation – the wait is over

Posted on July 20, 2014 at 7:19 pm

Set in the year 2137 (15 years after the events of Alien) the game follows Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda as she investigates her mother’s disappearance. Despite it being classed as a first-person shooter, this is no action shooter but is instead a survival horror game. Based more closely on Ridley Scott’s original Alien film it features only one Alien throughout that cannot be killed and requires stealth and skill to survive. To make this as scary as possible, the Alien has no predetermined path and is actually artificial intelligence programmed to actively seek out the player by smell, sound and sights. It has a challenging set of behaviours designed to unlock as it encounters the player creating the illusion that it is learning and adjusting. This includes being about to investigate other sources, like if a door has been left open that was previously closed… So there are no cheats as such with this game, as it will constantly adapt, if that’s not scary, we don’t know what is!

Enjoyed COD but want a change? Titanfall could be just right for you!

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 1:33 pm

Created by Respawn Entertainment and some key members of the Call of Duty franchise, gamers will be able to see and feel the resemblance of Call of Duty. Some gamers might be sceptical at this point but the only way to prove them wrong is for them to keep playing the game.

With advances in the agility and combat techniques of the Elite Assault Pilots who have the ability to run along or up walls you can start to have more fun with your character.

The option to hop on into a Titan is a massive bonus, it creates a new playing platform which makes the online gaming even more of a challenge. This robotic extension of your Pilot certainly has some advantages. Whilst you’re in the bot your own life bar will be protected, if you are being attacked it is the bots life bar that will drop – you just need to make sure you make your exit before you get blown up!! However, with superior fire power and the ability to deflect attacks, it certainly has an advantage against the standard Pilot, this bot will surely help you gain a few more kills.
