Halo 5 Collector's Edition Disc Upgrade Process

It's no secret that I'm a massive Halo fan. The amount of Halo related toys, games, and other items I have aside from the games is borderline obscene. The long awaited Halo 5: Guardians is a few short weeks from release and with any major AAA release, there's also an accompanying pricey Collector's Edition that nets you a bunch of physical goodies alongside the game for the massive fans like myself.

Rise of the Tomb Raider [X-15 Preview]

No new Rise of the Tomb Raider footage was shown at X-15, but developer Crystal Dynamic did reveal some interesting new details about Lara Croft's next big adventure.

Players can expect a much bigger world in Rise of the Tomb Raider. While speaking at X-15 in Toronto on Wednesday, lead combat designer Philippe Therien explained the game would be three times bigger than its predecessor.

Gigantic [X-15 Hands On]

One of the biggest surprises at X-15 was the strong showing for one of Microsoft's newest IPs, Gigantic.

This free-to-play MOBA shooter from Motiga first caught my eye on the showroom floor with it's bright and colourful artwork. I had to have passed their booth five or six times before finally sitting down to try it out.

Battleborn [X-15 Hands On]

I tossed my battle axe across the map, all while bursting forward with my shield out in front and my four comrades giving covering fire from behind. This was just the first minute of Gearbox Software's Battleborn.

At X-15, Gearbox had a playable demo of one of their co-op campaign mode in Battleborn. Ten characters were available to choose, all vibrant and unique. I could immediately associate the "hero shooter" with Borderlands just through the personality on the character screen.

Quantum Break [X-15 Preview]

It feels like Remedy Entertainment is finally starting to show their hand when it comes to Quantum Break, but if what they showed at Microsoft's X-15 event is any indication, they're still not ready to lay everything out on the table.

Members of the media were brought into a dark room for the Quantum Break showing on Wednesday in Toronto. No one from Remedy was on hand, leaving the presentation to Microsoft producer Torin Rettig.

Why every Xbox enthusiast needs Windows 10

My gaming habits have changed drastically since I had my daughter. Now with the wife and kid, I sometimes need to wait my turn to use the big screen TV in the living room to do my Xbox gaming. Sure, I could pack up the system and move it to the spare TV in the bedroom, but really who wants to do that? Sound familiar?

What I wanted to see at E3 2015

It's no secret that E3 2015 was absolutely fantastic for gamers. The big names had some bombs to drop and the real winners were us the gamers. To say that it's going to be a very expensive Holiday this year is a massive understatement. But there were some things that stood out for me, a few things that I wanted to see at E3 that weren't shown or mentioned.

Fallout 4 – Best. Fallout. Ever.

We were not left in the lurch when Bethesda unrolled all the cool new features in their next iteration.

Oh my God, you guys. That was awesome, wasn't it? It was just phenomenal. I'm legit having trouble pacing myself, because even looking down on my caringly crafted notes so I could talk about everything in cohesive order, I just want to regurgitate fangirl rainbows all over my screen.

BE3: The Bethesda Show

Oh, Bethesda. My faith in you is well-placed.

If you were able to catch the conference last night then you were probably as slippery and wet from salivating as I was. We weren't given a slew of games to look forward to over the next year like with other conferences, but we were given less a buffet and more tapas: smaller morsels, but oh god they're so delicious. Maybe I should stop talking while I'm waiting for dinner.

Xbox @ E3 2015

Bethesda started E3 a day early with their first ever press conference. It had some monumental moments of its own, like the gameplay reveal of Fallout 4 and its crazy crafting system that is sure to have gamers pouring hundreds of hours into the game later this year. Not to mention finally seeing what DOOM is going to look and play like. Now Microsoft finished their press conference for Xbox, and if you know me at all you know how much of an Xbox fan I am. To say I left their conference excited is quite an understatement.
