Halo 5: Guardians is just a few weeks away and looks to make a big impression for the series. With all the hype surrounding it, a new trailer dropped to day that ramps up that hype through the roof. The game looks absolutely stunning, and I can see why it is going to need 60gb of space to install. Check out the Xbox One exclusive below, which releases on October 27th.

Simply put, Journey is one of those rare gaming experiences that are one of a kind. It is hard to put into words how perfectly this game represents that the genre is a form of art. Its simple, beautiful, deep and elegant. It doesn't overstay its welcome either, clocking in at about 4 hours per play through. Its stunning visuals take you through sandy deserts and up snowy mountains. Your goal is to make you journey to a mountain in the distance. For what reason is not explicitly stated, as your character is voiceless. Journey is platforming based, with most conflicts being puzzles and the odd enemy once or twice, and much of the game is spent traversing beautiful landscapes. The game is an interpretational story that, when concluded, made sense and was purely brilliant. The game also features one of the most unique takes on co op i have ever seen. Random players enter your world, and with no voice chat allowed, players use musical tones made by your characters to communicate and help each other travel and survive. This game is an experience no one should miss given the opportunity. I think only a day after I played it through with Hugo (@hugostweet) and Cole (@Satansboner) I sat and watched Marc (@J0j0Wh0) play through it all over again and it was amazing from both perspectives. Short and sweet, Journey is overly deserving of all the acclaim it has gathered.

Just recently Lee was in town so naturally we played some games together. We decided to play Resident Evil Revelations since we have yet to finish it, and in the spirit of October here is some of our session. We explored a dingy office building looking for false body parts...

Dead Rising 3 was the first title I bought on my Xbox One, so it is near and dear to my heart. Just playing it brings back all the excitement of being lined up at midnight in front of Best Buy and being the second person at the store to buy their Xbox One. That is besides the point, but brings us to how great of a launch title Dead Rising 3 was. It exhibited an awesome open world and brought all the zany weirdness of the Dead Rising series to the next generation of console gaming. Stuck in a quarantine set in a zombie filled knock off of Los Angeles is Nick Santos, our zombie killing mechanic turned hero. There is so much fun to be had across the game. It was all the more impressive that it was load screen free as you traversed across the well sized map. With plenty of weapons and a bunch of crazy-awesome weapon combos, there were tons of ways to kill the huge masses of zombies on screen. There were also a good amount of vehicles as well, which were also combinable and made for great killing machines on wheels. This entry was much more laid back than the previous one, and really let you flesh the game out without having to worry about the ticking clock of impending doom. All in all it showed what we could expect from new consoles, and gave players a great open world experience that was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of using the technology. If you have yet to play Dead Rising 3, do yourself and pick it up.
This week's #TBTReview was requested by @Sric360 on Twitter, so thanks for shooting us your request!
Hunter: The Reckoning was an awesome action/ hack and slash style game from the early 2000's that many loved for its cooperative modes. I remember playing with my buddy Anthony one week after he suggested renting it. It was a great recommendation, and we stayed up way too late playing it I am sure. It had a great dungeon crawler type feel to it which drew me in and made the multiplayer all the more fun. Good old fashioned buddy-buddy type games like this need to make a comeback. It featured 4 characters with different abilities known as the "Hunters". They use their base weapons in addition to special abilities and temporary weapons to defeat the hordes of evil. It also featured classic style boss fights that were really fun. Though I can not explicitly remember the game scene for scene, it made for a great time many years ago. For its classic co-op and fun memories alone, it scores a solid 7.5/10
