Dodge-cancels are in

'The journey will begin anew'
Feb 23
On the rare occasion I use my Xbox 360, I'm amazed the thing still works. It's laughably slow to boot up, full of games as it is, and having gone through several broken systems last generation, there's a lingering fear that t... read

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon


Oh man, that filter

Oh hey, an excuse to talk about Banjo-Kazooie


Both games bundled on Xbox 360
Jul 09
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 re... read
