A tense stand-off at a train station as I attempt to hack another player in Watch_Dogs on the PS4. Definitely my contender for my hack of the week. Still loving this game and the more I get into it the more it gets under my skin. Well done, Ubisoft Montreal you made one hell of a game!

Watch_Dogs has been out for almost a week and somehow I have managed to find the time to play the game, record some footage and edit it all together for your enjoyment. As per usual when a big title I have been anticipating finally comes out, real-life steps in and does its best to keep me away from my console.
This video just shows off some of the games features in action like hacking and how that works in various scenarios, combat and driving. Also, I found a little Easter Egg in a shop that I have put at the end. It's worth the wait

Two years after its stunning unveiling at E3 2012 ushered the first glimpse of the next generation of gaming. Ubisoft's cyber crime open world game, Watch_dogs was released this week. I was there at my local branch of Game at midnight, ready to embrace this on my new shiny Next Gen platform, the PS4. There is a part of me that can't believe that I am actually getting to play this on Next Gen kit. I had expected to still be rocking the PS3 when this came out.

This must coma as surprise to some, as Microsoft have stated in the past that the Kinect could not be taken up of the system as it was integral to the system and it's operation. Mind you, these days the Executives at Microsoft must be permanently dizzy from the amount of U-turning the company has done in recent months.
As well as this excellent news for the future of the Xbox One, MS unveiled the Games with Gold is coming to Xbox One in June. Starting with Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault. There will be the usual two Xbox 360 titles available, which are Dark Souls and Charlie Murder, and bonus game, Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition.
So, finally the Xbox One gets down to a price that is tempting and also comes without all of the frightening surveillance technology. Titanfall anyone?

As regular visitors will know I was lucky enough to get a PS4 for my 40th Birthday last month. The timing couldn't of been better as the following week INFAMOUS SECOND SON arrived on PS4. Now if you look back at this site you can see one definite trend and that's I am a sucker for a superhero game and in recent years have been spoiled for choice. With games like Lego Marvel, Lego Batman, Spider-Man and the amazing Batman: Arkham series has given me some of my fondest gaming moments of recent times.
