The next Age of Empires is for mobile

A free-to-play, touch-based Age of Empires is exactly what none of us wanted but Microsoft is the latest in a long line of companies that can't resist chasing after the lucrative mobile market. This KLab-developed strategy title will hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in the summer. It's called Age of Empires: World Domination. Commit that name to memory, and stay away.

Impressions: Killer Instinct: Fulgore photo
Impressions: Killer Instinct: Fulgore
by Chris Carter

Double Helix's first season of Killer Instinct is over, and here to close it all out is Fulgore, which makes eight total characters in the mix. While only two more fighters have come post-launch, they make a huge difference in terms of the meta-game, and help change things up considerably.

Spinal was a nice addition for sure, but Fulgore ups the stakes considerably.

Review: Kinect Sports Rivals
by Chris Carter

The original Kinect Sports for the Xbox 360 did exactly what it set out to to do. It didn't set the world on fire or reinvent gaming as we know it, but it showed that despite some gimmicky features, the Kinect actually works -- for the most part.

And here we are almost four years later with Kinect Sports Rivals -- a souped-up version that's no longer just a free pack-in, but a premium-priced game delayed months after the release of the Xbox One.

As you can imagine, the actual results are mixed.

Xbox One still doesn't do external storage, but it's 'coming soon'

We knew almost a year ago that you'd be stuck with the Xbox One's 500gb hard drive. Much like Bewitched's original Darrin, it is irreplaceable. Our concerns were met with assurances that you could simply use external USB stor...

Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold photo
Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold
by Jordan Devore

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 - 15, and Deadlight offered from April 16 - 30.

I hadn't yet played the game, but our own Brett Makedonski shared this advice for Deadlight: "Get it for free, play the first bit, then put it down forever."

Let's hope this pair is the beginning of moderately good things to come for Games with Gold.
