Xbox One owners will eventually be able to buy 360 games on the actual console

I know it sounds weird, but bear with me. Right now, the Xbox One backward compatibility feature has worked out to the point where most folks can merely download their existing library on their current console with little fuss. But the game...

Gears of War PC
We already covered Gears of War: Ultimate Edition at length in Brett's wonderful review, but surprise -- it's coming out on PC too this month! Well, sort of. If you can call Windows 10 "PC," which a lot of you probably won't. There's no Steam support here, just you and the Windows OS. And a decent port.    read

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1 screenshots, we got 'em

The latest series from Telltale's The Walking Dead line is here, in the form of Michonne: In too Deep. Surprise -- it's actually pretty good, even if the formula hasn't made any real strides in recent years, and is starting to get a bi...

Telltale struck gold back in 2012 with The Walking Dead. It already had the well-crafted Sam & Max revival under its belt along with the stellar Puzzle Agent, but beyond that, it hadn't really delivered a breakout hit. On...   read

Call of Duty DLC review
It's still crazy to me that I'm loading up a Call of Duty DLC pack first on PlayStation 4. After years of Microsoft-dominated timed exclusivity Sony finally has its shot at heading it up, and it has perfect timing with Black Ops III. As one of the best Call of Duty games in years, it allows Awakening plenty of room to breathe, and lets Treyarch be its unconventional self.   read
