The dust has barely settled from Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal and fanboy outrage is still thick in the air.
While nerd rage can be expected after any big announcement such as this, there are several elements to the Xbox One that are rather unsettling.
Then there are others that are just outright uncool.
Here are five essential aspects to Microsoft’s new angular apparatus that really should have been revealed on the big stage.

Grand Theft Auto is as synonymous with gaming as Mario or Halo.
The series has spanned many years, consoles, and times, and we’re here to showcase that.
Grand Theft Auto V looks absolutely gorgeous, and more so if we take a step back in time and catch a brief glimpse of how the series has evolved.
Below, you’ll find a short screenshot comparison between the most recent major games, with future comparisons arriving in the coming months as we get closer to release.
The leftmost column is Grand Theft Auto III, the center being Grand Theft Auto IV, and the rightmost being Grand Theft Auto V.

OXCGN’s Second Look FUSE Preview
by Arthur Kotsopoulos

Back in December we got the chance to test out FUSE in both a single player and co-operative player capacity in the form of ‘Echelon‘.
Whilst the game retains the same high octane gameplay we first witnessed, this time around we were treated to a proper hands on with the games first 3 missions.
FUSE has been specifically developed with co-op in mind so it was only appropriate to start the game with 4 player co-op where each player chose their respective character.
Difficulty is treated like any other game played in co-op i.e; Borderlands 2 is scaled accordingly.
If you were to play the game on your own and leap between the other 3 characters, you won’t find the same challenge as you would with 3 other human players.
It was clear from the get go that the enemy AI adapt to your playing style and will enlist an array of tactics on the battlefield to complete their mission, eliminating you.
FUSE second preview here
