And Finally, Fred Dinenage explains how to play XCOM 2. Because reasons.



  1. “February the nevererth for Xbox One because there is no beta for you.” Ooohh burn baby burn! :P

    • *Rests back whilst downloading the exclusive Homefront beta* :P

      Seriously though, that betas are becoming an exclusive thing is just wacky. They may as well have done with it and just call it a demo, because there ain’t much testing can be done on just the one platform, for either Hitman or Homefront.

      • Yeah I absolutely agree with avenger, this whole exclusivity is getting out of hand!

  2. If anyone is wondering why the Dying Light update on X1 is over twice the size of PS4 is because you have to replace entire folders when you update on X1, wheras you can just replace files on PS4. I’m not sure why but maybe it’s for security purposes.

  3. It’s not often that I say this but I’ve not found your snatch very interesting today.

    • Oh I quite agree, sorry, I was just clearing out the newsfile.

  4. Have to say that apart from the odd animation here & there, SFV looks decidedly similar to SFIV. In fact, they had it on in game the other day & I had to double take to ensure I wasn’t looking at IV.

  5. Why is Hitman, A SINGLE PLAYER GAME getting a Beta? I know it’s episodic but come on! Betas are not meant to be demos and Hitman does not have a damn multiplayer. Why is it getting a Beta? WHY? WHY!? WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?

    Oh and er…. slow news day joke involving Tuffcub not being arsed to dig out the dirty news. :P
