It doesn't have Donkey Kong Country or GoldenEye, but Rare Replay does offer a neat challenge for Battletoads fans: how long can you stay alive on the infamous speeder bike sequence? During a hands-on session with t...

Has Microsoft killed Kinect?


Kinda. Maybe. Possibly?

Talking of backwards compatibility... did you notice what wasn't on that list of playable titles? Kinect games. There are no Kinect games. No Kinectimals, no Kinect Sport, no Dance Central. It seems that Xbox's all-singing, a...

Here's all Xbox One's 'backwards compatible' games


The list is, uh, interesting, right?
Jun 16

I was very excited when, at yesterday's E3 Conference, Xbox's Phil Spencer announced that "BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY!" was coming to Xbox One.  I thought that I'd be able to pander to nostalgia at a whim, grab any one of t...

Gears of War 4 announced, features new characters


Looks pretty spooky and stormy
Jun 15
// Jed Whitaker
Gears of War 4 has been announced by The Coalition at Microsoft's E3 press conference, and it looks spooky as hell. No familiar faces were in the trailer, as it looks like the game focuses on all new characters. Fans of the series will be happy to know that the Gnasher shotgun, Stub pistol, and Lancer are still here. Coming exclusively to Xbox One, the release date is still unannounced.

Ahoy!
Jun 15
// Kyle MacGregor
Rare just revealed its next project, Sea of Thieves, a pirate-themed Xbox One exclusive. Other than that details are pretty scarce at the moment. Prior to the showing off the game, which looks like it might be an MMO, a studio rep dubbed the title Rare's "most ambitious project to date."

// Laura Kate Dale
Hey everyone, Rise of The Tomb Raider is coming to Xbox One on November 10.  There's also a chunk of gameplay footage which we will have up shortly. The game appears to be both faster and more action packed than the last Tomb Raider, which is pretty cool to see.

Tiger and Squid is bringing its blind adventure Beyond Eyes to the Xbox One and PC. You play as a young girl without sight, and it looks like a beautiful little romp through a watercolor world. It's set for a 2015 release date.

The above trailer for the cartoon-esque Cuphead was just unveiled at Microsoft's E3 press conference. The trailer shows off plenty of new enemies, including an evil carrot and a giant mermaid that Cuphead fights in an airplane.  Cuphead releases in 2016 exclusively on Xbox One.

Rainbow Six Siege will come with free Vegas 1 and 2 on Xbox One


Thanks to backwards compatability
Jun 15
// Chris Carter
Microsoft announced today at its 2015 E3 press conference that Rainbow Six Siege, which launches later this year, will arrive with free copies of Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2. This is due in part to the backwards compatibility program unveiled earlier in their show. I'm completely okay with this bonus -- I could use another playthrough of those two classics.

EA Access adding Titanfall and Dragon Age: Inquisition to the Vault


Good choices!
Jun 15

Electronic Art's EA Access subscription-based service ($4.99 per month, or $29.99 annually) is adding Titanfall this week. Not sure how thriving the community is but I never gave it a shot, so now I might! In similarly cool news, Dragon Age: Inquisition will be out for the service sometime this summer. Not a bad deal!
