Halo 5: Guardians' box art has two Spartans lost in each other's eyes


Box art posts are the worst
Apr 28

PSA: Best Buy gives you an excuse to get Titanfall


Xbox One version currently $8
Apr 24
// Robert Summa
For those rare Xbox One owners that still haven't experienced Titanfall, Best Buy is running a sale that certainly limits your excuses for not owning the game. As of now, the game is available for only $7.99. Seems like a good value to me, but I suppose if you hate fun, then it isn't. Titanfall [Best Buy]

Ten Conker-themed games in Project Spark (none of which are actually Conker)

Since Microsoft seemingly refuses to do anything in the way of a new fully-realized Conker, fans have to settle for whatever they can make in Project Spark. Given an asset pack to work with, a lot of these creators made fair...
