Be the zookeeper
I must admit, I’ve always been on the very outskirts of the Tycoon-style games over the years; peaking at about 30 hours with rollercoaster Tycoon 3- not really impressive by any standard but there it is.
This edition of Zoo Tycoon is a Microsoft developed reboot of Blue Fang Games series that ended quietly on the DS in the late naughties. As with previous entries Zoo Tycoon places you in the shoes of the eponymous zookeeper, tasked with creating, developing and maintaining a prestigious zoo in order to attract visitors and developing your collection whilst keeping finances steady enough to progressively grow your creation.
Poor implementation leads to a poor game
Of all the launch titles for the Xbox One, Ubisofts Fighter Within is the one you should completely stay away from. Not because it’s a bad game, but because it has the most poorly implemented Kinect functionality ever. Fighter Within, is the first piece of shovelware to be seen on the Xbox One, and it’s sad that this type of game wasn’t supposed to make it’s way over to next gen but unfortunately it has. After the mistake that was Fighter Uncaged, I honestly don’t know what Ubisoft were thinking when allowing this game to proceed.
With an unknown developer at the helm the moment this was announced, trouble was the only outcome possible for this game.
Our writers give their thoughts on Microsoft’s next gen console
The wait is finally over.
The next generation of video gaming is upon us here in Australia, with Microsoft’s Xbox One the first to reach our shores here on the 22nd of November, 8 years to the day of the release of the Xbox 360.
It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve gotten our grubby hands on the Xbox One, and like many of you out there, we’ve formed our own opinions on Microsoft’s latest effort.
Therefore, we here at OXCGN have managed to pry ourselves away from our new consoles in order to bring readers our quick impressions of the Xbox One.
OXCGN’s Wreckateer Kinect Review
Does it catapult to great heights or sink like a cannonball?

It was no surprise that Kinect would make its presence felt with the 2012 Summer of Arcade line up and that presence is extended in the form of Wreckateer.
One of the most enjoyable activities in the video game space is destruction and destruction is the order of the day in this enjoyable little arcade title.
Goblin infested towers stretch arrogantly skyward and need to be literally knocked down a peg or two.
Step forward your avatar. It’s your job to take down these structures with a variety of airborne wrecking balls.
