The latest version of Sennheiser's premium gaming headset brings unparalleled comfort, but not without some considerable drawbacks.
Headsets are becoming an increasingly more vital component of every gamer's setup – not only offering an immersive experience but also providing a competitive edge in multiplayer titles. With this increased appeal, more audio hardware manufacturers are starting to offer a range of headsets tailored to gamers. One of the more recent additions to this lineup is the reworked Game Zero headset from Sennheiser; a well-established veteran in the audio space.
Among Sennheiser's gaming offerings sit two premium headsets: the Game One and Game Zero. Both of these are marketed as higher-end devices, touting their comfort and general immersive capabilities. We've managed to spend a few weeks with the better of these headsets, the Game Zero, to see how it fairs with the ever-growing competition.

How easy is modding Skyrim on Xbox One? Too easy!
With the recent release of Skyrim: Special Edition came the ability to mod your game, giving the player a whole wagon full of new content to play around with and build the Dragonborn of their dreams.
Here's how to get set up for using mods on Skyrim Special Edition for Xbox One!
How to set up a Bethesda account
The first thing you're going to need is a Bethesda account. A Bethesda account is needed to do this thing and that thing and these other things. If you've played Fallout 4 and used mods on your Xbox One, then you've already got a Bethesda account. You can do this on your PC:
Go to account.bethesda.net.
Click Create Account.
Enter your account information in the fields, agree to the terms and conditions, and verify that you're not a robot.
Click Create Account
Verify your email! If you don't verify your email, then you won't be able to use mods until it's done.

Control your Xbox with one of these handy remotes.
If you have Xbox One controlling most of the media in your home, you are well aware of how clunky the standard gaming controller can be when trying to command other systems. If you're looking for an easier solution, you may want to consider a media remote for your Xbox One.
We have compiled a list of the best media remotes — both dedicated and universal — you can get to ensure you have a quality user experience every time you pick up that clicker.

So Final Fantasy XV is finally here, after one of the longest development marathons in recent memory. It's a huge game and will take some time to properly review — so here's my take after my first ten hours on Eos.
Originally announced as a PS3-exclusive spin-off of Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XV eventually became its own fully fledged title. The development of Final Fantasy XV has seen several twists and turns, and the influence of modern WRPGs such as The Witcher 3 is undeniable.
Final Fantasy is one of the world's most revered video game brands, but it's suffered in recent years from the botched launch of the MMO Final Fantasy XIV and the punishingly linear (and often dull and incoherent) FFXIII.
Can Final Fantasy XV drag the franchise into the modern era? Can it satisfy the series' long time fans at the same time as appealing to the sensibilities of modern Western gamers? So far, it's looking likely.
Final Fantasy VII was the game that turned me in...
Find an unmatched squad of pilots with Networks for Titanfall 2!
Alongside the recent release of Titanfall 2, a new layer of teamwork and player collaboration has been introduced in the form of Networks. While Networks don't necessarily introduce any hugely innovative ideas, their inclusion significantly adds to the game's multiplayer experience. But what exactly is a Network? Here's what you need to know!
What is a Network?
Debuting for the first time in Titanfall 2, Networks are a simple built-in grouping feature, designed to bring similar players together into a single location. Comparable to clans and guilds in other multiplayer titles, players from across the world can create and manage their own Networks. Built directly into the game's multiplayer menu, Networks are a fast and easy way to bring together players with similar interests and preferences.
Why should you join a Network?
If you're familiar with Looking for Group services, you'll already be accustomed to the bas...
Reprise your role as the Horseman War.
You might recognize Darksiders as a hack and slash adventure game that originally arrived on the scene way back in 2010, and now it has made its return with Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. After a trick, the Horseman War starts the apocalypse effectively destroying the world as we all know it. Standing accused of doing this on purpose, he is jailed for a full century before being given the chance to prove his innocence by searching out the truth back on Earth.
For those of you who played this game years ago, you already know all of this. Now the question is how this remastered edition works on your Xbox One, and whether it's worth picking up again. We've got all the details for you here.
Updates, updates everywhere
If you spend a lot of time gaming on your Xbox One console, then you''ll immediately recognize Darksiders: Warmastered Edition as an older game. The updates to the graphics are noticeable for folks who have played before, maki...
One video games industry's biggest award shows of the year, The Game Awards 2016, came to a close last night, crowning some of this year's best titles with the recognition they deserve. Having been three years since the ceremony's initial debut, The Game Awards have grown in scale – now offering 25 awards across a varied range of categories.
This year's show also appeared to see an increased mindshare among gamers, not only for the awards themselves, but the announcements made as a part of the event. Trailers debuted for a range of titles, including Halo Wars 2, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy and Hideo Kojima's latest project, Death Stranding.
Here's a closer look at the winners in each category of this year's show; and the nominees who didn't quite make it. Below each award category are the titles nominated to receive it, with winners outlined in bold.
Overwatch took home the grand prize, being crowned 'Game of the Year'.
GAME OF THE YEAR
If you're a user of the Windows 10 3D Builder app, we've got some exciting news for you. Microsoft recently updated the 3D Builder app with support for Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One, meaning you can now design and 3d print your models from even more Windows 10 powered devices!
For those who are unfamiliar with 3D Builder, it's an app bundled with Windows 10 that allows users to create, design and share 3d models, with the built in ability of being able to 3d print them directly from within the app.
Some might say it's similar to the recently released Paint 3D app, except it's missing all the "paint" features outside of being able to build 3d models and objects. The 3D Builder app also works with Kinect, allowing you to scan in items directly within the app.

For those of us in the Xbox Insider Program, there's a new bug-smashing update on the way.
There isn't a huge amount of content in this update, but it does bring fixes for LFG, messaging, and lays the groundwork for some upcoming features.
Here are the details per the Xbox forums:
OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161201-1900
Available: 6:00PM PDT 12/3 (1:00AM GMT 5/12)
LFG parties which have been filled should no longer appear in the LFG interface.
Resolved an issue which prevented users from accessing or sending messages.
Miscellaneous fixes and continued feature development.
Microsoft is probably laying down some preparations for integrating Beam.pro streaming, which was promised earlier in the year. Development on Insider builds will probably wind down as we get closer towards the holiday season, but the features will continue to roll out thick and fast thereafter.

ReCore is one of the most underrated games this year, but thankfully, it doesn't seem like Microsoft is finished with it just yet.
ReCore will pick up an all-new T8NK corebot companion in early 2017, which will add a whole new dimension to the game.
The cutesy T8NK corebot, as its name suggests, is a sentient tank that can serve as a platforming aid as well as a personal mount for Joule. It looks as though this update will also bring new challenge dungeons that focus on speed, testing player's abilities to maneuver the T8NK corebot. There's no word on whether this will be a free update or not so far, but we'll keep you updated when we know more.
ReCore takes place in the world of Far Eden, where players control Joule and her menagerie of mechanized companions on a mission to find out why the human colony there failed. ReCore wasn't the biggest budget title to hit Xbox One and the Windows 10 Store this year, but it was among the most vibrant, offering some old-school action plat...
Crackdown 3 news has been a little thin on the ground lately, but at least we now have a launch window!
During Microsoft's ExtraLife charity stream (during which an impressive $18,000 was raised), the Crackdown 3 team took a few questions about the upcoming open-world shooter (via ICXM).
Crackdown 3 will launch before the holiday season of 2017 for Xbox One and Windows 10. Crackdown 3 will also boast visuals in 4K resolution on Project Scorpio, showcasing the power of the next Xbox.
Reagent Games discussed Crackdown 3 during the live stream at around the 2-hour mark. In response to a question about Crackdown 1 and 2 hitting backward compatibility, Microsoft's Jorg Neumann coyly noted that they're "working on stuff," which at least indicates Microsoft is still exploring bringing previous Crackdown titles to the current generation. Perhaps remasters are on the cards as seen with Halo Wars 1? Time will tell.
Crackdown 3 is a 4-player co-operative open-world shooter with a comic boo...
