We'll need Windows 10 (or an Xbox One) for Gigantic

Motiga's team action game Gigantic is looking fabulous in this new trailer out of PAX East. While that's no surprise, this is: the Seattle-based studio is partnering with Microsoft to bring the game to Windows 10 as "a key l...

Halo: The Master Chief Collection patch seeks to bring relief

As is the trend nowadays, big-name titles don't get released polished and complete, that's what those day one suckers are for. Recently, the biggest suckers have been the Halo faithful who have been crushed under the immense ...

Xbox One controller adapts, goes wireless on PC this year

At GDC 2015, Microsoft announced plans to release a wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers on Windows later this year. Great news, but we need dates, Phil Spencer. Specific dates! I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.

Review: Screamride photo
Review: Screamride
by Chris Carter

When I first saw the debut trailer for Screamride, I assumed it was a simulator. Growing up with Sim Theme Park and RollerCoaster Tycoon, I relished the idea of creating and managing my own commercial park and divining new and innovative ways to thrill people.

That's not what Screamride is. Instead, it's more like a series of minigames based on three concepts -- creation, destruction, and riding. You do that over and over, with mixed results.

In the end though, Frontier Developments' formula is a therapeutic way to spend an afternoon, even with its faults.

Crystal Dynamics: Tomb Raider partnership with Microsoft began in 2008

At gamescom 2014, Rise of the Tomb Raider caused waves when it was revealed to be an Xbox exclusive. Well, sort of an exclusive. More like a timed exclusive. But, regardless of the confusion surrounding the announce...

More than three months later, The Master Chief Collection still doesn't work

Xbox has another Ultimate Game Sale up its sleeve
