This week's Xbox Deals with Gold sale has Wolfenstein cheap(er)

Even though Microsoft just ended its summer's Ultimate Games Sale, it's not content to simply cease offering discounts altogether. Everything with a gun must go, apparently -- leading to some pretty decent prices on both Xbox One and Xbox 3...

Oh hey, an excuse to talk about Banjo-Kazooie

Before 4J Studios became involved with the console versions of Minecraft, it ported Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade -- rather well, I might add. If you haven't yet played them on Xbox 360, they're worth a revisit, and you ...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood makes it to PC and Xbox 360

Press Play's puzzle-platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood has only now released on Xbox 360 and Steam. My interest in the game has certainly dwindled since its Xbox One debut back in December, but there's a reason it's taken this lo...

Super Time Force is officially out today for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. YES YES YES! We loved the game, it's a ton of fun, and you should just go buy it already what is wrong with you hurry up. Capybara is celebrating the launch by unleashing ALL the gifs. There's so many gifs that you can basically communicate in gifs to your friends. Also here's a brand new trailer. It's pretty messed up.   read

Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold

The featured titles in Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion have tended to not be compelling, I think most of us can agree. April shows signs of improvement, with Hitman: Absolution available to Xbox Live Gold members for free from April 1...

Double Dragon Neon review
Beat-’em-ups are quite the strange genre to me. I grew playing many of them: Simpsons, X-Men, and Turtles in Time in the arcades were my jam. In fact, I’d say they are still my jam. That said, it’s easy to r...   read
