The big news coming out of today’s show was our reveal of The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which was created for those who prefer to find and play their games digitally and are looking for the most affordable way to play Xbox games. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition comes bundled with three of our most compelling and popular games – MinecraftForza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves.

We hope to share more details on local availability and pricing in the coming weeks.



Get the Best of Both Worlds with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
In June 2017, we launched Xbox Game Pass – with the goal of empowering gamers all over the world to discover their next favourite game. A top request fans have shared from day one is to provide an option to get Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold in a single membership. We heard you. Today, we’re excited to announce Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will include all of the benefits of Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass. That means the full Xbox Game Pass library of over 100 high quality games, and Xbox Live Gold online multiplayer, in one convenient membership for AUD$15.95 a month. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, gamers will be able to play together on the most-advanced multiplayer network and discover their next favourite game.



Brand-new Features are Coming to Game bar
A few weeks ago, we shared that Game bar on Windows 10 was getting a major overhaul. From Spotify integration to improved social experiences that enable you to see what your friends are playing, quickly text or voice chat, and create memes to share via Twitter, there are a number of ways that the team is making this the best version of Game bar yet based on community feedback. Game bar is an overlay built into Windows so it works over any PC game. In order to make the overlay your own, we added the ability to customize Game bar. Choose which widgets to show/hide, where you want them located, and even pin specific widgets. Find your own favourite Game bar layout to enhance your gaming experience. In addition to all of those improvements, today we shared that our Looking for Group (LFG) feature will also be added to Game bar, allowing you to quickly and easily find people to bring into battle with you (or, if you prefer, battle against). To try out these features, launch the Xbox Insider Hub on your Windows 10 PC.



New Competitive Game Mode and Story-Rich Quests are Coming to Sea of Thieves
Sea of Thieves Executive Producer Joe Neate made an appearance on this week’s show to share more on the updates the Rare team announced this morning. First there’s The Arena, a brand-new competitive game mode that offers all the best bits of Sea of Thieves concentrated into fast-paced and fun 24-minute matches. For players looking for rich and immersive new quests, there are Tall Tales. These are epic story-driven quests that play out in the shared world, with the first collection – Shores of Gold – taking players across the seas to experience a story of love, honour and betrayal in search of the mythical Shores of Gold. Finally, there’s a brand-new Trading Company, The Hunter’s Call. This will offer players new ways to play and progress and includes a raft of new features including fishing (with 50 different types of fish to catch), cooking and hunting.

Six Beloved Titles Join Xbox One Backward Compatibility with Xbox One X Enhancements
Announcing new titles coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility is always exciting, but it’s even better when we can reveal that said titles are being enhanced for Xbox One X. Today, we were happy to share that Ninja Gaiden 2Fable 2Fable 3Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell BlacklistTom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent are all enhanced for Xbox One X. Best of all, they’re all available starting today! Remember, Xbox 360 games enhanced for Xbox One X run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count.

During the show, we took a closer look at some games that’ll be hitting Xbox One in the coming months. First up was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the new Star Wars game from Respawn Entertainment that was revealed this weekend at Star Wars Celebration. Next, got up close and personal with Rage 2, the upcoming shooter from Bethesda that offers up one of the wildest post-apocalyptic settings we’ve ever seen. Finally, we shared that Warhammer Chaosbane is set to launch on June 4th. If you love the Warhammer universe or some good old-fashioned dungeon crawling, then this game is for you. Best of all, the next closed beta is about to start in just two days. That’s right: On April 18th, you’ll be able to jump into the action as Bragi Axebiter, the Dwarf-killer and Elessa the Wood Elf, who will be joining the soldier and high elf classes from the first beta.

To close out today’s show, we had a special guest appearance by the Head of Xbox himself, Phil Spencer. During his segment, he talked Project xCloud and how we at Xbox put the gamer at the centre of how we build our strategy and services, driven by the idea that as a gamer you should be able to play the games you want to play, on the devices you want to play them on with your friends, anywhere you go.  Spencer also talked about his excitement to be representing the broader gaming community at E3 2019. We recently announced plans for our biggest presence ever, including Xbox E3 FanFest, and the diversity of the content across Xbox and PC that we’ll be highlighting in the briefing from both Xbox Game Studios and third-party partners from around the world.

Violence and Gaming.. Are games the real Culprit here?


I wrote this a few days after the recent tragedy in Christchurch because I was upset and writing helps me get through that. I have been back and forth in my own head on whether I should share my thoughts and have only just came to be ok with it. 

First and foremost our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters across the ditch. Having been to Christchurch I was in shock that an area that was so beautiful and the people so welcoming could be effected in this way. 

On to the below. 

This is my response to the "Video Games Make You Violent" speal that the Australian media has been spouting for far too long now. 

Your thoughts are welcome below, but keep it respectful. 
Snoogs  

Yet again we are hearing that video games are causing people to become violent.

Of course all this has again come up as Australian media’s "go to" blame to sell papers and get people scared and watching the sensationalist news.

The individual who went a took the lives of many and the soul of a nation last week was said to have enjoyed playing games so that is instantly the problem according to news outlets.

Before we get into that lets turn the clock back to my younger days. If someone went out on a shooting rampage, turned serial killer or ripped the heads off kittens (yes we had all these back then too) they were always an outcast, a loner or a little strange and different.

How does that tie in?

Those who are outcasts, a little strange or socially awkward now have somewhere they can belong. The gaming community is one of the most open and welcoming that I have ever known. We don’t care where you’re from, your race, colour or sexual preferences, we welcome all. You are your avatar, your screen name and your skills online. Ultimately if we’re playing together, we are enjoying the company and social interaction. I have friends online that I have never met yet I call them friends. Some live down the road, in other parts of the country, or on the other side of the world. I look forward to hanging out with them, the same as I do catching up with mates for lunch or a drink.

Let me make something very clear. Video Games do not make people violent! Violent people play video games!

What the media fails to bring to everyone’s attention is their own role in what happens. I think the recent tragedy in Christchurch and the way it unfolded paints the perfect picture of what needs to change.

I’ll refer to the person who did this from here on in as F…. as in fuckwit, I refuse to name them.

F travelled the world and idolised people that have carried out similar attacks. How did they find out who these people where? How did they know them by name?

F has then written the names of these people on the magazines of the rifle used in the attack as a gruesome homage to them.

F has written a manifesto outlining their plans and reasons for it. The reasons? Well we are not getting into, but they are reasons that have been blown up by the media in the past to create conflict.

All this information has been written about by the Australian media. Even after being asked by the NZ Prime Minister not too.

On every major newspaper, every major outlet, online and in print they have posted the name, the image and details of F, going as far as seeking out their family/ grandmother to interview and disgustingly show them unedited footage of what happened, while filming it to get their reactions.

Let me be perfectly clear,

To the Australian Media outlets who have sensationalised this tragedy for your own gain.

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!

You have named the killer. You have shown their picture. You have given them infamy. They are now there with the names of those they idolised to commit this act of terror.

Above all else and probably most frightening of all. You have empowered the next!

Maybe it is time we put a ban on the media coverage and start aiming them towards helping those affected?

Devil May Cry V : Why Old and New Fans Need to Play


The Devil May Cry series comes roaring back with it's latest installment DMC 5. A visually stylish and intense experience made all the more possible by the extra grunt now available. 

I am Snoogs and welcome to the Aussie Gamers Experience's Review of Devil May Cry 5. 


Capcom has once again wowed us with a big name franchise coming back with a bang. Building on the base of Resident Evil 7, DMC 5 shows you it is so much more than just another hack and slash.

Devil May Cry 5 starts off with a bang, series favourites Dante and Nero are working alongside a mysterious newcomer in V thrust into a boss battle that feels somewhat like a climax battle, so needless to say, It doesn't end well with Dante beaten to a pulp by hulking villain Urizen, trapping Dante allowing Nero and V to retreat and fight another day. 


Nero's Demon arm is destroyed in the battle leaving him to resort to mechanical Devil Breakers created by his BFF Nico who drives the Devil May Cry team bus.....
Nero's fight style is very similar and feels strong. Brandishing your Devil Breakers, trusty Blue Rose revolver and of course, the Red Queen sword. Give it a rev and let the combos fly. Nero is the up close and personal fighter chaining the weapons together to create some big power plays.


Dante plays very similar to how he has in past DMC games with that stylish flair that we have come to know. Don't worry there is some more tricks up his sleeves but you have to wait till later in the game to try them out. 

V is very different to the other characters in style, presence and fighting techniques. He wouldn't look out of place in an EMO music video and feels somewhat weak. The truth is the more you play with V the more he works for you. V doesn't fight, but has 3 demons that he can summon to fight for him. A wise cracking Griffin, a Panther and the huge Nightmare. (Think Hulk without features) V doesn't do the fighting but he is needed to finish the enemies off. 


Getting the mix of defense and attack is where you'll struggle to begin with but comes to you very quickly. V is definitely the hardest to master as you have to get out of that in your face mind set and take on a more tactical approach. 

Visually Devil May Cry 5 is stunning. Playing on the PS4 Pro I have been in amazement of the sheer scope of battles, even in close quarters and the visual impact of the environment. Particle effects are on plentiful and on point, character models are crisp and really use the power of the new gen to its advantage. 


Chaining together combos is visually pleasing, I may have cheered more than once, and the scoring system makes sure you are always striving for a few more. Trying the get that SSS rank on each level is a challenge. Be careful not to overreach as a hit will send your scores tumbling. For those of us not at the forefront of the Devil May Cry series or this type of gameplay in general there is help. You can choose to play on two different modes Human or Demon Hunter, essentially easy and normal, and you can set combos to auto. While this doesn't put the combos on complete auto it does make them considerably easier to pull off. I have to admit, I was thankful for it. 


Whenever I have played Devil May Cry in the past it has been very unforgiving to someone like me. Controller twisting type of unforgiving. Devil May Cry 5 however feels much more open to a wider audience. I played on both Human and Demon Hunter difficulty and while there is a difference in the two I wouldn't go as far as saying Demon Hunter difficulty is too hard for most. I am sure hardcore fans of the series will be asking for more down the track. 

Of course there is no point making it too easy so the enemies need to have some variety to them and we have that. You have your run of the mill grunt type enemies that you can use any variation of style upon to build up your combo to get ready for the harder enemies and bosses. 

It is not all blood covered goodness however, and let me tell you, there is plenty of blood. 
Levels are very linear and after time start to feel like you're doing the same thing over and over again. Levels are also relatively short. Not such a bad thing, but when you factor in the amount of cutscenes you have to sit through it can be a little tedious.  


Overall Devil May Cry is a good and faithful entry into the series. One that fans of the series will be happy to play through numerous times to master the full potential of each character and is welcoming enough that new fans won't be frightened away. The story and progression is paced and rewarded well. In the later levels you start to feel almost god like. The huge number of techniques to unlock and upcoming free DLC will have me coming back for more. 

Snoogs

Burnt Horizon is here, Are Australians still a myth?



Kick off your thongs, straighten that mullet, grab some grog and remember most of all, we're not here to F*$k spiders. 

Ubisoft announced that Operation Burnt Horizon, the first season of Year 4 of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege, is now available for PC, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One. Operation Burnt Horizon brings two new Operators, Mozzie and Gridlock alongside with a new map: Outback, set in a forgotten service station on a lost Australian highway.

Check out the trailer below! 


Owners of the Year 4 Pass can play with the new Operators starting today. Other players will be able to unlock these Operators starting March 14th using Renown or R6 Credits. The brand-new Outback map and new content improvements are now available for free to all players.



Operation Burnt Horizon:

In Operation Burnt Horizon, players will meet two new Operators:
  • Mozzie, an Australian Defender, that can hack Attackers’ drones and take control of them with his Pest Launcher. Having Mozzie in the team gives a significant advantage to the Defenders, and Attackers better watch their drones if they do not want to lose crucial intel.

  • Gridlock is an Australian Attacker who can deploy Trax Stinger spike mats capable of slowing down and hurting Defenders stepping on them. This feature, unique for an Attacker, enables them to use the Trax as an obstacle to reshape the map and control an area.
In addition, players will discover the lost Australian highways in the new Outback map, an homage to the forgotten service stations lost in Australia’s sunburnt countryside. Outback is a medium-sized map packed with twists, turns, and Australiana, and is filled with unexpected corners and souvenirs from the Great Southern Land.

Operation Burnt Horizon also features a series of iconic themes of Australia and a new Hibana Elite Set.

Newcomer Playlist & Playlists updates

A brand-new newcomer playlist for players under level 50, to help them learn the basics of Rainbow Six Siege. They will play the Bomb mode of classic maps most representative of the game’s core gameplay, namely Chalet, Bank, and Consulate. Attackers will vote for a team spawn point while on the Defenders' side, the bomb sites will be automatically pre-selected by the game.

The Casual playlist will now improve the flow between the Newcomer and Ranked and has been updated. Finally, to stabilise the Ranked gameplay experience, the required minimum level has been raised to 30.

Led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with seven other studios around the world**, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is the next evolution in the open-world online shooter RPG genre that the first game helped establish. Set seven months after a deadly virus was released in New York City, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will bring players into a fractured and collapsing Washington D.C. The world is on the brink, its people living through the biggest crisis ever faced in human history. As veteran Division agents, players are the last hope against the complete fall of society as enemy factions vie for control of the city. If Washington D.C. is lost, the entire nation falls. Building upon more than two years of listening to and learnings from The Division community, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will offer a substantial campaign that organically flows into a robust endgame, to create a cohesive and meaningful experience for all types of players.
