Check out Final Fantasy XI's mobile reboot

King's Quest review
Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the p...   read

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...

 
Alien vs. Pinball review
Today is Alien Day, the latest in a series of dubious holidays pushed by marketing departments. Unlike Back to the Future Day which has a very obvious temporal tie-in, the date for Alien Day come...   read

Michonne
To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling new characters. Much like the in-game narrative, the burden was left on the shoulders of Michonne. That couldn't be more true of the finale.   read

The wonderful Rayman Origins is now playable on Xbox One

Goodbye Xbox 360, it was nice knowing you

On November 22, 2005, the Xbox 360 was released, and Microsoft began their reign that would echo throughout that particular generation. The effects of the 360 are obvious even today. The Xbox Live Arcade machine was nearly unstoppable,...

Hey, now you can play Doom 3 and Monaco on your Xbox One

Walking Dead review
Telltale was never going to top the Walking Dead series proper with their three part Michonne series. It was always presented as a sort of tertiary tale, a gaiden that followed in the footsteps of the star, partially tied to the comic series. The first episode reflected that spinoff mentality. So does the second, for that matter, to a greater extent.   read

Left 4 Dead 2 is the latest title that's Xbox One backward compatible
