OWC has sent over their recent Xbox One offering for such an option. The OWC Upgrade Kit for Xbox One 1TB Hybrid drive offers double the storage capacity of the Xbox One’s original standard drive for about $125. There’s a good variety of other USB 3.0 drives out there too, but we’re comparing it directly against the Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0 MyPassport with a slightly less MSRP, but can be had for about half the price. So what’s the difference between the two? Namely the hybrid drive from OWC utilizes an SSD caching mechanism to theoretically speed up loading times on games. Specifically the drive uses a Toshiba 6Gb/s 5400RPM drive with 8GB of NAND storage and 64MB of cache.

Tabletop Co-Op: Lord of the Rings NazgulMarc Allie

For this installment of Tabletop Co-Op, we travel to one of the most well-known locations in all of fantasy literature: Middle Earth. The setting is a rich one, and has inspired countless video games as well as card and board games. The idea of a group of men, elves, dwarves, and hobbits teaming up to take on the relentless invading forces of an ev...

While his first interaction with Warlocks vs Shadows will be to score the upcoming trailer, a late August update will add him into the game as a playable character!  Now Zardites everywhere can play as their metal-remixing hero as they blast Shadows back to whatever dimension they came from.  Am I saying that right?  Zardites?  Zard-heads?  Either way, it's a neat addition to the game, and I'm not one to argue against extra content.

As far as co-op titles are concerned, probably the best deals in the sale are on the aforementioned MMO's and Valve titles. In the case of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, the $12 final price constitutes a historic low price by about $19 (for the relaunch of the game anyways) - a hot hot deal from an authorized retailer. While GMG doesn't sell the popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by itself, you can get that game in the Valve Complete Pack for only $20. The Pack gets you every game Valve ever made for five bucks more than you can get Counter-Strike: GO for by itself on Steam right now.

What is N ? Being an upgraded version from the original N , players control a nimble and ninja who platforms his way around dozens of obstacles and robot enemies to collect gold. The graphics might seem primitive or retro to some, but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Up to 2-players either locally or online can team up in one of the modes being offered in the game. Working together as a team, the two ninja's must use their parkour abilities to navigate each level in different ways.

The Sultan definitely large, measuring about 5' x 5', so it'll take up quite a chunk of space. Luckily, my living room had a perfect corner next to the bookshelf to place it. After marveling at the sheer size, my wife and daughter both took turns laying in it and ended up molding it into a bit of a chair shape. By the time I was finally able to get a turn, it was like sinking into an ultra-comfortable lounge chair.
