Official XCOM 2 Console Launch TrailerEarth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda…2016-09-27T14:00:00.000Z

The aliens actually pulled it off. Even though the human race employed the aid of their extraterrestrial fighting force to combat them, they still took over planet Earth. They’ve also taken over the human race, plus it seems like they’re not the benevolent leaders they were painted as. But we all know that their good nature is nothing but a farce. The XCOM resistance has returned and they’re ready to take back their home planet from those alien invaders. XCOM 2 features the same addictive strategic gameplay and custom character creation we enjoyed before. The combat now moves at a faster pace, so you need to be even more careful and not lose your most prized soldiers. The enthralling campaign and intense fight to reclaim Earth from a dangerous alien race propelled us to give our all in XCOM 2.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Launch TrailerWe were all created equal… But in 2029, after the Aug incident which caused the death of millions, mankind stands divided. The oppression of the mechanically augmented has created a climate of fear and resentment, resulting in an escalation of crime and acts of terror. Amid all the chaos, Adam Jensen goes after the Illuminati,…2016-08-19T19:25:09.000Z

Taken from Game Review: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided sticks to a formula that still works. We were pulled into a world strife with bigotry, covert organizations and pure chaos as a powerful augmented agent looking for answers. The game’s constant push to help you discover the truth behind the world’s declining health comes through in the form of a great story. The gunplay, stealth and new augmentations do a great job of keeping things fun while you help push along the plot. There’s so much to do, see and hack into throughout Mankind Divided’s full content suite. While the bevy of technical problems halted our fun from time to time, we still couldn’t wait to head back into Adam Jensen’s fragmented future.

F1 2016

F1 2016 – Launch TrailerCreate Your Own Legend in F1 2016 – OUT NOW! Buy now: Follow us here:

The official game of last year’s FIA Formula One World Championship encapsulates the full F1 racing experience. One of the world’s most prestigious (and fastest) racing leagues gets a respectable representation due to this game’s implementation of popular drivers, teams and tracks. The pre- and post-race presentation is on point, the racing itself feels as close to the real thing as possible and everything looks amazingly detailed. F1 2016’s new and improved career mode added on an even lengthier season that evoked the same passion and undying determination displayed by this racing league’s competitors. Serious sim racing fans would be a fool to miss out on F1 2016.
