Bad news for all of you out there who were enjoying the free-to-play Ascend: Hand of Kul on the Xbox 360 -- the game is no longer available on the platform. According to developer Signal Studios this decision was made for them by Microsoft, and the game was just discontinued out of the blue.

Signal is telling their fans to make the switch to Steam where they will continue to support the game, which will net them a bonus of 25,000 Souls. We've reached out to Microsoft for comment to get the whole story, but if they really did pull the plug without any notice, I feel for Signal.

As a side note, Ascend wasn't a niche game -- it reportedly acquired 2.5 million users as of this past May on Xbox Live.

Warface is noface, to be displaced and not replaced on the Xbox 360 marketplace

Crytek hasn't been doing so hot critically lately, with the recent releases of Ryse and Warface. I would have completely forgotten that the latter game had existed if it weren't for the ridiculous name, which immediately...more

Crossy Road is Frogger for a new generation

I'm not one to get into mobile gaming but every few months something comes along and enough friends and peers tweet about it that I feel compelled to join them, if only for a day. Crossy Road, a sort of isometric, voxel-y, ...more
