Recently alongside many others, I had a chance to have a go at The Division’s closed beta, a game I’d simply been ignorant of out of laziness and as such was not all that interested in. Following my short experience with a slice of the game, despite a few small flaws, I’m left kicking my former self for not making more of an effort to follow what has become a very unique and ambitious title.  [Read More]

It was announced today that Quantum Break will no longer be just a Xbox One exclusive game. On April 5th, the game will release for both Xbox One and Windows 10. For those interested in adding this game to their collection, there is actually quite the incentive to preorder it on the Xbox One. When you preorder a digital copy for your console, you will also receive a free copy of Quantum Break for Windows 10. While many may be excited for the opportunity to play this on both platforms, you’ll be even happier to know that you will be able to go back and forth between your game saves on Xbox and PC, per Major Nelson’s tweet.  Preordering also gets you a Xbox One backwards-compatible copy of Alan Wake: American Nightmare.  [Read More]

Hey there, RULers! It’s finally time to have our first game night of 2016! And what better game to have it on than Halo 5?  Our last game night was a huge success and everyone had a ton of fun!  Depending on the lobby size we’ll mostly be playing in Customs, but it’s possible we may even play some Warzone so we can gather up all those REQ points. Either way, it’s going to be a great night filled with laughs, chaos, and of course team-killing…. er, I mean friendly competition! Right? Well, I hope you’ve got your Spartan all spiffy and your guns all pizza-fied so that you’re ready to go for this upcoming night! We look forward to seeing you all there!  [Read More]

It’s no secret that Halo 5 has been a wild success, and an excellent return to form for a series that has seen a bumpy road for the last few years, but nothing’s perfect. Many fans have weighed in on Halo 5, offering suggestions, making requests and identifying flaws, some of which have already been addressed through updates. We’ve seen gametypes added, REQs introduced, bugs fixed, UI changes, and much more – but I think something simple’s been largely overlooked by many.  [Read More]

Before I begin, note that being an Xbox owner and a Call of Duty & Destiny fan, I’ve been on both ends of the stick in question for this article. That stick, to clarify, is the debate on whether it’s right or wrong for game developers/publishers etc to release additional or part of the content of a multi-platform game exclusively on one of its relevant consoles. This goes for timed exclusives too.  [Read More]
