Zynga has lost half of its active users in the last year

The bad news is that I'm sure they all moved on to play god damn Candy Crush. For now. Until some other bright casino game or reality show about a bad 90's rapper living in an Amish community wrangles their attention so they ...

The Crew seeks to redefine online racing photo
The Crew seeks to redefine online racing
by Alessandro Fillari

Making its debut at E3 2013, The Crew is Ubisoft's attempt to create a new and fast-paced racer for the next-gen consoles. Although the publisher has definitely got some stiff competition from other racing titles, what separates it from the rest is its ambitious take on open-world racing with competitive and cooperative gameplay.

While it's currently making the rounds at gamescom, Ubisoft allowed us to take the game for a spin at its San Francisco office. Developed by Ivory Tower, The Crew intends on giving racing fans a nation-sized playground to explore and test their prized vehicles against other players in style.

Download Rockman Xover's free but hilariously short OST photo
Download Rockman Xover's free but hilariously short OST
by Tony Ponce

I think I've said all that really needs to be said about Capcom's free-to-play abomination that is Rockman Xover. But in all fairness, I have not personally played the game and thus can't judge the accuracy of others' damning impressions... yet. Capcom is still tooling around with the idea of a localized release, so maybe I'll get that opportunity one day.

While those chuckle monkeys get that business sorted, you can download Xover's soundtrack from the Capcom sound team page complete free of charge. Composed by Masahiro Aoki, member of the in-house Capcom band ROCK-MEN, the music departs from the series' usual electronica styles and enters full hard rock territory with wailing guitars that wouldn't feel out of place in Guilty Gear. It's surprisingly not complete doo-doo, and the main theme is quite catchy.

On the downside, it's only six tracks long. One track was added to the game along with the fan-created Arcade Man boss, and another is a piano / violin arrangement of the main theme. In other words, the game only had four songs initially. That's kind of pathetic, but whatevs. To download the individual tracks, visit here and click on the song titles under the "REVIEW" section.

Review: Plants vs. Zombies Adventures photo
Review: Plants vs. Zombies Adventures
by Chris Carter

The Plants vs. Zombies IP is a particularly interesting case. After creating one of the biggest casual hits of all time in 2009, Popcap kind of just sat on the property, keeping quiet about future plans despite its popularity. Well here we are in 2013, and there are at least two PvZ games on the way -- Adventures, and Plants vs. Zombies 2.

I must warn you, Adventures is a social game made exclusively for Facebook. No, this isn't the full sequel you've been wanting for years, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth your time.
