Bioware has launched a new developer diary video series for Anthem, and the first episode focuses on the game’s story, progression system, and player customizations.

The video features plenty of gameplay and cutscene footage, and both feature amazing levels of visual fidelity. The gameplay looks pretty fun too, I mean you do get a jetpack, and jetpacks always make things better, but outside of them I just think this world looks like a fun one to play in.

If you seek more Anthem action, there is a livestream set for today at 4PM EST.

Fantom Drives XSTOR – Xbox One X Hard Drive

Have you been looking for a way to expand your Xbox One X library without adding a bulky external hard drive?

Well, I can’t really help you, because this accessory looks fairly bulky, HOWEVER, it does attach directly to your Xbox One X. It’s specifically designed to sit right on top of your Xbox by plugging into the front USB port. It’s got its own cooling fan, which is good, and highly needed considering how much real estate it takes up on top of your console.

You can check it out right here and see it for yourself, I do appreciate that it comes in multiple sizes in terms of storage. It also comes in SSD flavors from those that want the absolute best performance… for nearly 400 dollars if you want the 2TB version. Is this something that you’d spend money on for your system or would you rather just pay less for a regular one and have it sit next to the console?

Xbox Battlefield V Supply Drop Showcase

Battlefield V is getting a limited edition Xbox One X in Olive Drab and it looks pretty cool actually. Not only that, but they showed it off by sky-diving with it!

Good thing they didn’t drop it, also I suppose this proves that they can survive sky-diving, if you really wanna do that.

Not only that, but they’re teaming up with Operation Supply Drop to bring the most powerful gaming console to veterans. It’s been proven, as I’m sure many of you know by now, how therapeutic video games can be for those coming back from active duty. They can see some pretty hairy stuff overseas, and it puts a huge deal of stress on them, possibly for the rest of their life. Xbox is giving back to them and trying to help the cause, and for that, I commend them. Check out the video above and let us know what you think and if you’ll be picking up the limited edition console!

It will hit retail on October 8, 2018 in Europe. You can check out a trailer and additional details for this headset below.

Microsoft Launches Xbox All Access Program Bundling Hardware, Xbox Game Pass, and Xbox Live

Microsoft has launched a new program for its retail stores to get more gamers playing on its Xbox One platform. The new program is called Xbox All Access, and for an affordable monthly fee gamers can get an Xbox One X or One S console, two years of Xbox Games Pass, and two years of an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Before you even question the price of these bundles the math does work out, and the total cost of these items bought separately is more than the total cost of the Xbox All Access program, so just trust us on that. The savings are greater for the Xbox One S option, but both bundles will save you money in the end.

If you opt for the Xbox One X Xbox All Access bundle you will get the 4K-ready console, access to 100 games and all upcoming Microsoft exclusive titles, plus two years of an Xbox Live Gold subscription for $35 a month over a 24 month period. The Xbox One S Xbox All Access bundle gets you the same deal on the Game Pass and Xbox Live, but instead of the One X, you get the less powerful One S console. This bundle will run you $22 a month. You do get to keep the console at the end of the 24 month period too, assuming you complete all required payments.

There is a catch though to get the low monthly price point with zero upfront costs. You will have to apply for a Dell Preferred Account, which is essentially the credit account you’ll enroll into to make the monthly interest free payments. You can also use other payment methods, but those will require you to pay for the bundle in full at the time of your purchase.

The program is now live and only in certain Microsoft retail outlets, so to find out if you live near one, you can check out the official Xbox All Access webpage for more details.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Enhanced Edition Hitting Xbox Game Pass in September

Microsoft and 343 have released a new trailer to promote the enhanced version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will be hitting Xbox Game Pass on September 1. This version of the compilation adds 60fps to all four of the included Halo games, as well as resolutions going as high as 4K UHD. It will also offer quicker load times, better matchmaking, and offline LAN play among other things.

It’s not clear if owners of the Collection will be getting the Xbox One X enhancements too, but I would guess they will. I at least didn’t see commenters going haywire for this trailer, so I’m assuming everything is on the up and up with the enhanced version of The Master Chief Collection. Head on up above to check out the new trailer.

About  Halo: The Master Chief Collection Enhanced

The improved and enhanced Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Xbox Game Pass beginning September 1. Featuring visual enhancements with up to 4K UHD resolution on Xbox One X, improved matchmaking, offline LAN, customizable installation options, and faster load times, it’s the definitive way to experience the ultimate Halo saga. Includes the extensive suite of campaign, multiplayer and additional features from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 – all updated to run at 60FPS.

Free Play Days For Xbox One NOW!

Xbox is having some free play days for those that don’t have Xbox Live Gold. From August 9-12 players will be able to play with their friends, and they’re pushing OnRush pretty hard with it as well, which is a good thing, in my opinion. That game deserves more attention, and giving players some free time with it is the perfect way to get people hooked, that game is so good. ESO: Morrowind is the other one that they’re really pushing, and I guess that game needs as much attention as it can get, because I don’t know who the hell is still playing that. Must be enough people to warrant making more expansions for it all the time. I wouldn’t be surprised if that stopped so that Elder Scrolls VI can get more attention.

That shit is gonna be poppin’.

All of EA’s E3 2018 Press Conference Trailers in One Place

Feel bad for missing the opening press conference of E3 2018? Never fear, dear readers, we’re here to make the convenience of the internet even more convenient than it already is.

Andrea Rene, co-founder of What’s Good Games, hosted this year’s EA Play. It definitely kicked off E3 proper with an augmented reality display of a battle in Anthem, the headlining third-person shooter developed by BioWare. If you want to check out the whole press conference from start to finish, there’s a video up above that starts playing right as the conference begins.

Between Cornelia Geppert‘s passionately vague pitching of Sea of Solitude (I’m sold) and Unravel Two‘s emotional curve at the end of its presentation, there’s a good bit of authentic humanity residing in EA’s E3 presence this year.

But, if you’d rather skip all the presentations and just see the game trailers (I’m not one to judge), you can do that down below, too:


Battlefield V


Madden NFL 19



Sea of Solitude

Command and Conquer: Rivals

Origin Access Premier (subscription service)

Microsoft Releases Resident Evil 7 Xbox One X Enhancement Showcase Video

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is now officially enhanced for the Xbox One X, so Microsoft has released a new comparison video to show off how impressive the visual upgrades are. The video compares the Xbox One X enhanced version of the game, with it running on the Xbox One S, which still would have looked better than the game running on a standard Xbox One. With that considered, there are still noticeable improvements in clarity between the Xbox One S and One X versions of Resident Evil 7.

The Xbox One X enhanced version will also support improved skin tone display through Screen-Space Subsurface Scattering and 4k output. As you’ll see in the video above, the visuals just look much better on the Xbox One X, which makes complete sense considering its powerful internals. If you haven’t played this game yet, now is the time, especially if you own the Xbox One X. The power of the X is real, just check out the comparison video above.

Nine Parchments Xbox One X Review: Streets of Diablo

Nine Parchments is far from perfect, that much is certain, but it offers a good time, especially for couch co-op. It mixes a lot of gameplay elements from different games which I happen to really enjoy. It’s got the twin-stick magic of the Wizard class from Diablo III, and the levels aren’t super expansive, but beautiful and arcade-y in design. The story is completely throw-away in and of itself, but I won’t say that there weren’t a couple of character dialogue lines that were genuinely touching. There are eight playable characters each with four different forms, so essentially you’ve got 32 characters to choose from.

When you start the game, you’ve only got two characters to choose from, but by doing small side-quests, and finding certain staffs and hats, you unlock the rest. Each character starts with three spells that they can cycle through, and they can learn nine spells in total. There are more than nine spells, way more, and each character, once fully leveled up with all of their spells, can feel somewhat different from others. The way that magic works in this game is fairly simple and effective when it’s broken down. There are three pairings of elements:

  • Fire and Ice
  • Life and Death
  • Steam and Lightning

These elements are weak to each other, and most enemies are imbued with, or shielded by one of these elements. So if an enemy has an Ice shield, you would attack him with fire to destroy the shield, then after that you can attack him with whatever. If an enemy is imbued with the element, however, they will always be weak to their opposite element, shield or no. That also means that they’re immune to their own element, so don’t bother trying to hit an ice enemy with an ice beam, that’ll get you nowhere quick. This is why it’s really important to diversify your elements early on in the game. As far as I can tell, every character can learn at least one spell of each element, although some characters favor certain elements overall. For example, the first character I picked, Cornelius has a pension for ice spells, and starts the game with one, as well as a fireball and a death bomb. Stupid me picked another ice spell for my first additional spell, though, and that made the next chapter a little harder than it needed to be.

Still though, there’s a good amount of characters with different stats and favored elements, and tons of different spells and types of spells (beams, single-shots, bombs, waves, traps, etc.). It should be said that the game is infinitely more fun when played with at least on other person, being able to revive each other and bounce spells off each other is great. You can cross beams with another player (or even an enemy beam) to form a bigger, stronger beam for devastating effects.

So the gameplay is fine and well enough, but what about the level design? Well, first thing is that, running on the Xbox One X, this game looks so pretty. I didn’t expect the game to look as good as it did, but every different area blew me away with how gorgeous it looked for such a silly, cartoony game. I can’t speak for how it looks on the regular Xbox One, but I can’t imagine it’s that radically different, it’s just really well designed and nice to look at. I will say though, as good as it looks, there’s not much interactive to do with the levels. They’re just these long, winding paths with enemies peppered throughout them, much like a typical beat em up. I think that there could have been a little bit more done here, especially with the fact that you can teleport and jump relatively high, compared to what you might think you could. Not really related to that point, but I should mention, the music is really nothing to write home about. The title screen theme is pretty good, but I couldn’t tell you anything about the rest of the music, since it’s a blend of music and ambience most of the time.

The story, like I mentioned before is nothing much to talk about, the eight playable characters are all wizards in training. 9 parchments (see what they did there?) go missing that hold some value to the school that they attend and you set out to get them all back. Every characters has a little something to say at the beginning of each level, and there’s some light narration throughout the game. The level intro dialogue goes anywhere from light-hearted and funny to just a little depressing sometimes. Certain characters will mention things about their past or their time at school and you kinda get a feel for what they’re like as people. Make sure you keep your ears open for that dialogue each level, it can prove fairly interesting, even if the over-arching story is nothing special.

Nine Parchments is a very entertaining couch co-op game with a lot of characters to play as, gorgeous visuals, and fast-paced, entertaining gameplay. Playing by yourself is okay, but nowhere near as good as playing with friends, seriously, if you can, play with someone, it makes the game much better. The level design, while beautiful, leaves something to be desired, and the collectibles in the game, outside of the ones that unlock new characters, are pretty pointless. The hats do literally nothing, they’re just a cosmetic, and a really hard to see one at that, because the camera is so pulled back from your characters. It can be easy to lose yourself in the chaos while playing with friends as well. I have to say that this was definitely a fun, bright, easy to digest breath of fresh air after playing Mulaka, and I’d recommend it to most gamers.

Super Lucky’s Tale Gilly’s Island Trailer: An Adorable Paradise

Super Lucky’s Tale is by no means the best 3D platformer ever, but it would be an injustice to pass it up. If you’ve got an Xbox One, you should have picked this game up by now because it’s really a good time to be had. I know that in this day and age, Nintendo is pretty much the only one that can release this kind of game perfectly, but this game deserves better than what it got.

I digress, however, because we’ve got a trailer for the new DLC of the game, and it’s delightfully cheerful, almost nauseating. The new area, Gilly’s Island takes place on a tropical resort/pirate cove looking area. You’ll have to deal with the local fauna as well as pirates on land and at sea. Ships will fire cannons at you from afar which you’ll be able to bait into destroying objects around you so that  you can progress even further! Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think and if you’ll pick the game back up to play this!
