Lionhead is bringing Fable Anniversary to PC

Here's a video teasing a PC release of Fable Anniversary you can watch, though I wouldn't -- it's just a bunch of messages, presumably written by Lionhead Studios, asking for this revamped game to come to Steam. The featured...

Turn 10 is adding 20 more cars to the Forza Motorsport 5 season pass

The Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass will give owners more than initially promised, which is the kind of sentence I rarely if ever get the opportunity to write. Let's cherish this moment. Specifically, Turn 10 Studios has plans fo...

Powerstar Golf is now 'free' with paid DLC photo
Powerstar Golf is now 'free' with paid DLC
by Jordan Devore

Microsoft Studios and developer Zoë Mode have altered the pricing of Powerstar Golf such that there's now a free demo-like base version of the game and content has been relegated to DLC packs. Your progress made here will transfer over if and when you add premium courses.

It's now possible to pay $19.99 (the original price) for all packs, or buy them individually at $5.99 a piece. Those are City Park, Emperor's Garden, Burning Sands, and Rocky Ridge. If you happen to already own Powerstar Golf, heads up: a bonus free pack, Coyote Canyon, is out today.

Actually, I'm a fan of this. It's a lower-risk way of getting into the game.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood makes it to PC and Xbox 360

Press Play's puzzle-platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood has only now released on Xbox 360 and Steam. My interest in the game has certainly dwindled since its Xbox One debut back in December, but there's a reason it'...

Rare 'evaluating' what to work on next

You know, it's gotten to the point where I'd take just about anything from Rare over another game made exclusively for Kinect. It doesn't even have to be a new Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Pinata, or Perfect Dark -- just something tha...

Gears of War studio Black Tusk hosting Q&A stream tomorrow

Microsoft is continuing the Gears of War franchise with Black Tusk Studios. I wasn't expecting to hear much about the new installment next month at E3 -- perhaps, at best, a teaser trailer -- but it's possible the company wil...

Fulgore closes out season one of Killer Instinct

When I think "Killer Instinct," I think "Fulgore." How could I not, given that iconic, badass black Super Nintendo cartridge featuring the cyborg front and center? It's nice, then, to finally see him added to the game today a...

Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow photo
Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow
by Jordan Devore

Additional tracks for Forza Motorsport 5 is a very good thing indeed, I think we can all agree. Especially when they're delivered as free DLC. Like the Road America track before it, Turn 10 is giving away another course, southern California's Long Beach Circuit, starting tomorrow.

As per usual with add-on tracks, Long Beach will be playable across all of Forza 5's modes. There's also a Long Beach Booster Pack containing five new vehicles on the way, although this is unsurprisingly only free for Car Pass owners. Those cars are: the 1977 Ford Coyote Gilmore77, the 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, the 1956 Jaguar D-Type, the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG Mercedes CLK GTR, and the 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P.
