Simon’s Video games reviews update

Here at Simon’s Video Games I am constantly trying to bring you new Opinion Pieces and Reviews for your enjoyment to maybe provide you with a bit of insight as to what a game is about so you can decide whether the game might interest you. Over the past couple of weeks I have been adding a number of reviews of games and I have also been bringing you opinion pieces. I hope to bring more opinion pieces soon but I am also trying to get games played and reviews written and I have a couple in the works at the moment. I wanted to take this time to provide you with an insight as to what I have going at the moment and the reviews I plan to put up as soon as possible or by a certain date because they were published on another website first where I also write for. So here is my list for reference:

Lego City Undercover (Wii U)

Pokemon X and Y (3DS)

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (Wii U)

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

Game & Wario (Wii U)

Call of Duty Ghosts (Wii U, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC

New Xbox One udate coming next month

 

Your next Xbox One update is in the works as we speak or as I write whichever way you would prefer it phrased. Set for release next month this new update is set to be a major one providing an upgrade on several of the key features for the Xbox One, more particularly the update adds elements such as an expanded friends area on Home, mobile purchases, low battery indicator, and more. Here are the full details on the update straight from Microsoft themselves:

  • Activity feed updates: We’re adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the ability to post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared to their activity feed and “like” specific posts (additional activity feed support coming in future SmartGlass updates).
  • Expanded Friends area on Home: Right from Home, see what’s going on with your friends. Stay up-to-date with their current activity, the top trending games your friends are playing, and a leaderboard to see who has been working the hardest on their Gamerscore. We’re doing an extended preview on this, rolling it into the early access preview this month to a subset of our preview audience so we can refine it until it’s ready for the entire Xbox One market.
  • Mobile purchase: One of the most requested features on Xbox Feedback. Using Xbox SmartGlass or on Xbox.com, you can remotely purchase games and Add-on content. No more waiting to begin downloading when you get home – if your console is set to automatically take updates, your console will begin downloading your purchase.
  • Low battery notification: You asked for it, now a notification will pop up when your controller battery is getting low.
  • Disable notifications during video: Adding the ability to turn off notifications based feedback we heard from you.
  • Enabling 3D Blu-ray: An update to the Blu-ray player app will enable 3D Blu-ray functionality on Xbox One.
  • OneGuide in Brazil, Mexico, Austria and Ireland: Live TV listings can be configured for four new countries as part of this month’s Preview program. And now there is an OneGuide Issue Reporter available under the TV & OneGuide settings, Troubleshooting section.
  • Last seen time in Friends list: Direct from Xbox Feedback, the friends list will now show how long it’s been since a friend has been online. For example, “Last seen 20m ago: Forza Motorsport 5.”
