Grab The Bottle Review

Grab The Bottle

Solving trial and error puzzles by stretching your arm like Marvel character Mr. Fantastic. It is a weird gameplay concept but it works pretty well and feels fresh, in what I believe is an overcrowded genre.  Developer Kamina Dimension delivers a one-of-a-kind experience but is grabbing the bottles a fun one too? Read all about that in this review!  Continue reading Grab The Bottle Review

How does reviewing a game actually work?

Getting where we are now took quite some time, LifeisXbox receives around 80% of what we request from publishers. It wasn’t easy getting the trust from PR people when we just started. Luckily I knew some people in the industry so that helped in the early days. This isn’t really a guide on how to start reviewing games (feel free to private message me if you want help with that) but more an explanation how writing a review actually works.  Continue reading How does reviewing a game actually work?

Tennis World Tour Review

Tennis World Tour

I loved most of the great tennis game on the Xbox 360, it was strange that we had to wait this long to get some tennis action for Xbox One. With AO Tennis and now Tennis World Tour tennis fans had something to look forward too. Sad news though, both tennis games are as disappointing as the results from Eugenie Bouchard lately.

Lily’s Epic Quest for Lost Gems Review

Lily’s Epic Quest for Lost Gems

Lily’s Epic Quest for Lost gems is a pretty unique gem matching game that mixes Bejeweled with Digger. Dutch developer Studio Craft brings this atypical game for Xbox. Clearly designed for mobile Lily’s Epic Quest still remains really fun to play, although a few bumps are along her way for finding those lost gems. Let us dig deeper in this review, shall we?  Continue reading Lily’s Epic Quest for Lost Gems Review

What I expect to see from Microsoft at E3 2018.

I have always liked Gamescom more but E3 has the heavy hitters when it comes to new announcements. On June 10th Microsoft will unleash new games and features, Xbox has been on a roll lately and I expect that Phil Spencer will focus on quite a few games this year. Here are my expectations, be sure to let me know what you think! Continue reading What I expect to see from Microsoft at E3 2018.

Laser League Review

Laser League

Laser League could very well be the 2015’s Rocket League from 2018. deserving so, if I may add. Developer Roll7, known from OlliOlli and Not a Hero released one of the most straightforward and fun online experience I had in years. With Xbox Game Pass you can be sure of lots of online players too so that is another great reason why I love that Microsoft started with this subscription. Games like Laser League have a lot more players than they would have had without the service. Anyway, here is LifeisXbox’s review for Laser League!  Continue reading Laser League Review

Forgotton Anne Review

Forgotton Anne

Ever wondered where that sock you lost went to? Or that glasses that mysteriously disappeared? In Forgotton Anne, the first project from Danish indie studio ThroughLine Games and published through Square Enix Collective, you play as the enforcer Anne, a young girl in charge of maintaining the order throughout the Forgotten Lands, a magical world where all the lost and forgotten objects go. Remember to be careful: an uprising is about to happen in this place! If that happens, Anne, her master Bonku or any of the forgottlings, the inhabitants of this land, may never be able to return to the human world. Prepare to stop this rebellion at all costs while you follow us in this review. Continue reading Forgotton Anne Review

Today my green heart bleeds red.

Today is a sad day for Xbox fans, some of you might not know who I am talking about but today Xbox Addictt  (Matt) passed away, nobody saw it coming and he was one of the biggest Xbox influencers on the internet. 

All people from LifeisXbox are deeply shocked and I would personally like to express my deepest condolences to family members, friends and followers.

His passion and dedication towards Xbox and gaming was truly remarkable. 

Extinction Review

Extinction

Iron Galaxy isn’t a stranger for Xbox gamers, the developer behind Killer Instinct did fantastic work with the franchise that Amazon owned studio Double Helix rebooted for Xbox One. Extinction is something else though, this Attack on Titan inspired game was something I had high hopes for, and now when it released to the public it disappointed me even more than Rare’s Sea of Thieves. Read why in this review!  Continue reading Extinction Review
