Xbox Reversal
Now that Microsoft has reversed their stance on initiatives restricting used game sales and more potent digital rights management for the Xbox One, has your bloodlust been sated?

The Question

Tepid sales of Wii U hardware and the slow drip of content being released for it have led some to suggest that perhaps it would be best if Nintendo just got out of the business of making game systems for the living room. Wit...   read

The Question
Some games are so good, they demand revisiting. In this installment of The Question, we talk about the games we go back to at least once a year for another go-around.
