Damnit, Ori and the Blind Forest's vinyl glows in the dark and I'm broke

I recently started collecting some vinyl from games and movies I enjoy (judge me as you will), and I'm having fun with it. But it ain't a cheap hobby by a long shot! Recently I was able to snag that fancy Hotline Miami 2 vinyl, and hoo...

Sony’s PlayStation Network made more money last year than the entire Nintendo company put together. Following Ninty’s financial statement yesterday, people cleverer than me noticed that PSN alone generated ¥529.1bn, compar...

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

The VLC Media Player is coming to Xbox

How, it's hard to believe that I've been using VLC for over 10 years. Initially picking it up in high school to watch anime (ha), this powerhouse of a program has adapted codec after codec to remain relevant in 2016. So relevant, in fact, t...

Goodbye Xbox 360, it was nice knowing you

People are flipping Quantum Break PC codes on eBay, effectively halving the price for everyone

One of Microsoft's selling points of Quantum Break for platform-agnostic people was that those who pre-ordered the game on Xbox One would get a bonus copy on Windows 10 PC. In an effort to bolster its PC gaming presence, Microsoft even...

The Gears of War 4 trailer as it was originally meant to sound

I have a theory that every single Gears of War trailer was originally set to the song "Mad World." Like it worked so well for the original trailer back in 2006 that Microsoft just decided to use it for every game in the series, but at the v...
