My Xbox Live account was comprimised: A customer service success story

This Saturday just gone was maybe the darkest experience possible in today’s world. I was locked out of my Xbox Live profile! Unable to hunt for achievements, level up my Battlefield 3 profile or even cyber-stalk my friends – life was suddenly confusing and void of reason.

Most Wanted: Batman Arkham City

Mass Effect 2: Power-Play your way to ME3

Mass Effect 3 is due to be released worldwide on March 6, 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. I’m really looking forward to this, I’ve played through number 2 but skipped over the first. The series provides a top-notch story setting, told well and with superb dialogue interaction. I was put off the … Continue reading

Devil May Cry Reboot

Amongst all the announcements and teasers at E3 this year, I must admit that I completely missed the latest teaser trailer for what appears to be a Devil May Cry reboot.

I want to go and live on a Minecraft floating island

Browsing around the swamps of user-generated Minecraft its hard to find a good one sometimes, so I thought I would share this time-lapse video with you all. Hopefully when it hits Xbox 360 later this year there will be plenty more projects like this for every one to enjoy.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 New Trailer at E3

Square Enix have released another trailer for next year’s Final Fantasy XII-2, the sequel to a game I grew to love. I’m excited at the possibility of continuing in the vein of the latter part of the first game.
