No Man’s Sky Review, Xbox One X

When No Man’s Sky was released back in 2016 for the PS4 I was so jealous as a Xbox owner. I was actually very close to purchasing a PS4 because of this. If you read Richard and Guy’s thoughts on the original release you can see it was a very polarising game that Hello Games had on their hands.

Thankfully the development team took all the comments, both positive and negative, on board and knuckled down for a couple of years to bring us the Xbox One release as well as a definitive update to PS4 and PC under the name of No Man’s Sky Next.

Have they nailed it? Or is it just the ‘next’ big disappointment?

A Way Out – Co-operative Prison Time.

‘A Way Out’ is a unique title with a requirement to play the whole game Co-Op with another player, either via online or on the Couch. No bots here people to fill the void, its time to get social. Honestly though, it’s good fun and the puzzles are not to hard as to cause online salt or old fashion fisty-cuffs on the couch.

Here is a bit of gameplay footage from about 2 hours in to the campaign. As you will see, it was a slick operation with the co-operation levels set to ’11’!

(Yep, that’s a Spinal Tap reference)

Sea of Thieves Review, Xbox One S

Now unless you have been stranded on a deserted island somewhere then you are bound to have heard of Sea of Thieves from Rare and Microsoft. It has been a long time since I have seen as much promotion and marketing go into a game title.

Everything from large well advertised Alpha and Beta testing groups to Sea of Thieves hardware, including external hard drives, controllers, and stands.

They really have thrown everything at this Xbox/Windows 10 Play Anywhere title, you would hope with a bottle of bubbly cracked across the bow, it would be a beautiful launch and plain sailing for our rum soaked mates at Rare…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review (Xbox One)

Welcome to Bohemia, 1403. You are Henry, son of a blacksmith from the the town of Skalitz.

And now thanks to Warhorse Studios you can experience the day to day tribulations of Henry in the medieval life simulator of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

I might be getting older but the pace of Kingdom Come: Deliverance suits me perfectly. It may get close to tedium at times but the fact that even Fast Travel isn’t really that fast is refreshing, and it even gives me time to grab another handle of Mead whilst travelling…
