Smite's Xbox One beta sign-ups are open

You can now sign up for the Xbox One beta test of Smite, Hi-Rez Studios' third-person, mythological MOBA. I'd recommend it to anyone who's curious about the genre but can't seem to get into Dota 2 or League of Legends. Be su...

Maybe don't spend $250 pre-ordering Halo 5: Guardians, okay?

There's a certain allure behind mystery boxes. What's in them? It could be anything. It could even be a boat; you know how much we've always wanted one of those. Well, Microsoft's offering a mystery box of its own today for p...

The Halo 5 early access beta left me pleasantly surprised photo
The Halo 5 early access beta left me pleasantly surprised
by Brett Zeidler

When we reviewed Halo 4, we really liked it. If you were to ask me personally, I was not enthusiastic about the game at all. Campaign aside, the multiplayer clearly lost sight of what made Halo multiplayer so damn fun in the first place. That was a real bummer.

And so, one can understand why I was wary of the direction Halo 5: Guardians' multiplayer would likely take. 343 has been promising that we would see a return to the classic arena style, and, after spending time with the early access beta over the weekend, the studio has delivered.

Very Quick Tips for the Halo 5 beta photo
Very Quick Tips for the Halo 5 beta
by Chris Carter

The Halo 5 beta is out for Xbox One preview accounts and select members of the press, and will be coming your way soon on December 29 if you are qualified. I...don't know how I feel about it yet, as my experience has been mixed so far.

It's definitely a beautiful-looking shooter, but the gunplay feels off at times. I need to play more to make a full judgment, and this is a beta after all! Here's some tips to help you whenever you happen to get into it.

Jagex and Hasbro terminate Transformers MMO

We never got a chance to see if there was more than meets the eye with Transformers Universe; Jagex and Hasbro shut down the free-to-play MMO today while it was still in beta. The move isn't entirely unexpected, as it may hav...

Remember the Halo 5 beta? It will launch with spectator options

Halo 5 looks damn good visually, but I'm a bit concerned in terms of the gameplay based on what I've heard so far. Thankfully I'll get a chance to try it out for myself later this month. Yep, the Halo 5 beta is inde...

That Korean MMORPG with the spectacular character creator has the best smiles

Black Desert may never see a release in the West, but that's not going to stop me from geeking out over its extensive character creator, perhaps the best I've ever encountered. Actually, scratch that qualifier. Now that I've...

Halo 5: Guardians has left me oddly cold and worried photo
Halo 5: Guardians has left me oddly cold and worried
by Abel Girmay

I am not opposed to change. While certain circles of Halo fans find it popular to hate Halo 4, I've always appreciated what 343 Industries did with that game. Sprint was a logical next step to character movement, while loadout abilities such as shielding, dexterity, and promethean vision felt like natural additions to Halo's formula.

With Halo 5: Guardians, well, I'm not quite so excited with what 343 is doing. During my time with Guardians I often struggled to find that feeling of playing a Halo game.
