JoeRayW’s Top 5 Games 2012

Welcome to my 2012 top five games list! It was particularly tough going to pick my five favourite games this year due to the high density of quality titles. Not the fact that I’ve only played five new games this year… at least they were all fantastic! It would be a pretty embarrassing top five if I had chosen to buy Hitman Absolution and Resident Evil 6 over some of these sparking discs of delight. Continue reading

Xbox 360 IGN Live & Gamespot TV Apps

In the time it takes to boot one of these apps up, you could probably boot your PC and find the required information in half the time. Speed beats convenience most of the time.  Continue reading
