'Game With makes online play better'
Need new pals for the Destiny raid? Got the Battlefield blues? The Metal Gear Online malaise? A new matchmaking service, Game With, wants to help you connect with your ideal co-op team.
What do you want to see?
Respawn boss Vince Zampella says 2016 is going to be "a very big year for Titanfall".
"We continue to focus on Titanfall," Zampella told Venture Beat. "Next year is going to be a very big year for Titanfall. For us, it is exciting to take this universe we created that is so extensible.
DiRT 3 will be backward compatible
I'm not sure what I was expecting from this lineup. Too much? Microsoft has come out with the list of games that Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download for free next month:
Pneuma: Breath of Life (November 1 - 30)
I don't even
While Crota's End never quite duplicated the challenge of Destiny's very first raid, The Vault of Glass, those of us familiar enough with the second raid know all too well that it's the end that's the tricky bit.
But then this guy comes along and solos it not just on the hardest difficulty, but also using a Rock Band drum-kit and wtf I don't even. Marvel at this:
Metal Gear myths
Early on in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you're sent on your way to find and rescue a familiar face, Kazuhira Miller, who is being held prisoner in Afghanistan. You're told he's vital to your quest for revenge, and that he has at most three days left to live.
I should've known that wasn't an understatement. What a tragic cutscene.
Alien: Isolation - The Collection
Xenomorphs are resilient little buggers. One year removed from the release of Alien: Isolation, we thought we had done away with the titular alien. Nope. It comes back to haunt us today because a flamethrower isn't hint enoug...
Wow, that was fast

Better UI and backward compatibility
Microsoft is preparing a major update for Xbox One that will overhaul the look and feel of the user interface and, crucially, add backward compatibility support for a growing list of Xbox 360 games. It's called the New Xbox O...
Check that off the list
There was talk of Burnout Paradise coming to Xbox One, but it wasn't a sure thing. Now it is.
On Twitter, Criterion confirmed that the open-world racing game will eventually be playable on the console via backward compatibili...
It was a solid base
When designing the King's Fall raid in Destiny, the developers noted that they created Hard Mode first, then went to Normal.
It makes sense, then, that the two would basically be the same. I just have mixed feelings about the loot system.
Last week, Destiny players everywhere were frustrated that the Iron Banner PVP event, a game mode they put hours of work into, yielded really poor loot despite Bungie's claims that it would be worth playing. Well, according t...
Call of Duty: Black Ops III on Xbox 360 will not be getting a Season Pass.

The path of least regret
It's perfectly fitting that Life is Strange's final episode is subtitled Polarized. I can't think of a more apt word to describe my mindset right now. Life is Strange's conclusion left me satisfied, but not for the same reaso...
Point camera, earn Gamerscore
Here we are, friends. It's time for the conclusion to Life is Strange's five-episode arc. I'm writing this prior to playing, and I have no idea what to expect. Well, that's a half-truth -- I expect to be an emotional wreck by...

A lot of dumb things happened in football this weekend. Michigan decided it would like Michigan State to continue its recent domination of the intrastate rivalry, so the Wolverines did this -- a not very good football play. T...

With a dash of Titanfall
Don't expect Call of Duty: Black Ops III to be all killing. Well, it'll be a fair amount of that. But there's also some running, and the game's newest mode focuses squarely on that.

Season One + 400 Days
I was one of those people who resisted playing Telltale's The Walking Dead adventure series for the longest time. Maybe you still are. If so, here's a nudge: the complete first season is free to download on Xbox 360 and Xbox ...
Tales from Borderlands Space
I'll be the first to admit -- I was extremely skeptical about Tales from the Borderlands, especially considering how disappointed I was by The Walking Dead's second season. But I'm happy to have been proven wrong. This game l...
'Cos we need harder raids, right?
Bungie has confirmed that King's Fall - Destiny: The Taken King's new raid -- will get its hard mode next week.
In the most recent Bungie update, the developer confirmed that the mode will drop at 10am PT on Friday, October 23, 2015.
Give it a go, it's fun
As previously mentioned, I think the King's Fall raid in Destiny is the best offering yet. It's clean, doesn't have very many bugs, and has a lot of variety within its walls. At this point I'm sitting on 15 clears, some for gear, some for fun, and others for quests and fragments (a collectible questline).
Whatever your reason is, here are some tips to help you through.
