Reaction: The day Microsoft stole Lara

If you haven't already heard the big news from today's Microsoft conference, brace yourself.

The next Tomb Raider game is an Xbox One exclusive!

This news made me go through a range of emotions from disgust to anger, but eventually I settled for disappointed. You see I have played Tomb Raider on PlayStation for many years. Even the latest reboot I played on PS3. To know that my PS4 is not going to see where the reboot goes next is sad.

It's no surprise that Microsoft have gone down this route. They need something to go head to head with Uncharted 4, particularly when they could both be heading for Holiday 2015 release dates. Sony have had a strong start and Microsoft are feeling backed into a corner and they have taken aggressive action to try and boost their console. It's a gamble that will hopefully pay off for them.

I had really hoped that this new generation of consoles would see an end to these kind of tactics from the big boys. Sony have showed the merits of their console through first party exclusive titles like Infamous Second Son, The Last of Us Remastered and the myriad of Sony funded indie titles. Microsoft have pooled all of their internal resources into Halo, Forza and Gears of War. They need something else and this move makes sense for them.

While this is going to be a sore point for many PlayStation owners for a while. The Sony conference later in the day certainly put the wind back in my gaming sails.

DayZ on PS4! Hell yeah! Thanks Sony, you win me over again.

PlayStation Plus Update - August 2014

Yes I know, I missed a month, but with good reason (see my latest Little Gamer Update). To be honest July's offering for PS Plus was was not the greatest. Although that is all going to change today with the August update for PS Plus subscribers. This month sees two exclusive indie titles that I have been looking forward to released for FREE! Two more classic indie titles that most people should already own, a LEGO game for another easy platinum. Oh! and Crysis 3.

Little Gamers Update - The one where I forgot to post

Erm, Hi! Remember me? We used to hang out a few months back... Yeah that's right, I would write about gaming and you all had to just read my opinion and accept them. Guess what, I'm Back!

So what excuse have I got this time or letting the site slip into almost obscurity. Too much work? Too much home life issues? Nope, for a change it is none of those problems. The reason I haven't written a post for so long is that I have been seriously gaming and having an absolute blast doing so.

Watch_Dogs - The Train Hack

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 - Video Highlights

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

Why I Love Watch_Dogs

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.
