Plans for 2017

2017 New Year

First of all I would like to apologise, as I feel like I’ve neglected my blog towards the end of this year, which is such a shame. I love writing and sharing my thoughts with people on internet, so it frustrates me that I can’t keep weekly content coming up on my blog, partly because I work full time and haven’t got a working laptop currently to just sit downstairs and chill.

So the first thing I want to change is activity on here, whether that be more blog posts, features or game reviews. I aim to write at least one post every fortnight hopefully providing I can actually come up with the content ideas. One big change at the start of 2017 for me is going to be fibre optic broadband, so now I’ll have a streaming setup to work with, as I already have the consoles and PC to edit for videos and overlays. I’m really looking forward to getting more stuff up on my Twitch and YouTube. I spent quite a bit of time setting these pages up and designing the graphics to compliment, so it makes sense to use them now. You’ll probably thinking that everyone does streaming and video content now, but this is more for myself, as I’ve wanted to do it for years but never had the internet at both my parents and now my own place.

Another change I want to implement in 2017 is more work with other websites, people and companies to build my own reputation up. I already established a few relationships in the games industry, but I want to further add to that and build Complete Xbox even more in 2017. More exclusives and giveaways where I can achieve that.

If you have any suggestions on what to improve on in 2017, then please do let me know down in the comments below, as I’m happy to take on your feedback.


E3 2015: Did Microsoft impress?

Microsoft had its E3 2015 showing on Monday night at 5:30pm (BST) and with it came a clear message that it has games to show. It was nice to have an E3 all about games and not like two years ago when it was all about next-gen consoles and not so much about new IPs and sequels.

Microsoft delivered a nice variety in titles and despite losing its rights to Call of Duty DLC first, everything seemed like a win to the company. Nothing has sparked an outrage and maybe that’s because Microsoft played it safe at E3 this year. They knew consumers wanted to see games and that’s what they delivered. Admittedly most of them also came from AAA title developers.

Gaming: How it all began


Don’t worry I’m not actually going into the history of gaming, but more of my own history and the reasons why I kept gaming since a young children. I guess it all started when my dad came back from work one day with a Sega Megadrive, a console I had no clue about since I was only about 7 or 8 years old. My dad was probably the main reason why I got into playing games. He used to buy all the latest consoles for me and we’d play a lot of local co-op together. On the Sega Megadrive it was all about Streets of Rage, I think we must of spent about 100 hours + playing that together every weekend when I wasn’t at school and he wasn’t at work.
