Brendan Fraser wouldn't like this next Killer Instinct Season 2 character

Kan-Ra seems about as menacing as an Saturday morning cartoon villain, but that's why I like him. The mummy sorcerer is next in line for Season 2 of Killer Instinct. He'll be available first for Ultra Edition ($39.99) player...

How does Titanfall on Xbox 360 for $5 sound?

[Update: They're already out-of-stock, so go on back to not getting Titanfall for really, really cheap.] Sure, the Xbox One or PC versions got the most love. Yeah, the lobbies probably aren't jumpin' jumpin' anymore...

Review: Halo: The Master Chief Collection photo
Review: Halo: The Master Chief Collection
by Chris Carter

Although Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was a noble effort to remaster the original game that brought first-person shooters on consoles into a post-Goldeneye era, I couldn't help but feel a bit underwhelmed by the overall package.

I enjoyed the idea of replaying the original, but there weren't enough bells and whistles to keep me interested for a lengthy period of time. Enter the Master Chief Collection, which not only gives you the remake of the first game, but a fully-featured remaster of Halo 2, as well as Halo 3 and 4.

I never thought I'd see the day when four major Halo games are under one roof [disc], but here we are. With promises of full 1080p support and 60 frames-per-second across every game, Halo: The Master Chief Collection follows through where it counts, and is now the new standard for remakes.

The Xbox One will get a $50 holiday price cut on November 2
by Chris Carter

Microsoft has just announced that the Xbox One will be getting another price cut outside of its Kinect-less model. The promotion will run from November 2, 2014 to January 3, 2015, and will feature $50 off bundles, ringing in the price at $349 in the US.

Bundles including Sunset Overdrive, Assassin's Creed: Unity, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. At this point, the system has enough games to warrant a purchase if you're interested, and some of the bundles are a pretty good deal.
