Xbox One's free Games with Gold are now available to download
by Brett Makedonski

We've known for a little while now that Xbox One was finally going to be included in Microsoft's continuing Games with Gold program beginning in the month of June. We just didn't know when in June that was going to take effect. Apparently, the answer is June 3.

Right now, both Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault are free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. They can be downloaded via the console or on Xbox.com. Remember though: Regular Games with Gold rules don't apply to Xbox One titles. You have to maintain an active Gold subscription to be able to keep them.

Reading Rainbow wants to fly to consoles like PlayStation and Xbox

Confession time: Ever since the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter was announced earlier this week, we've been looking for a reason to write about it. It's a formative relic of our youths, how could we not want to discuss it? With ...

Friendly reminder: Dark Souls is free on Games with Gold first of June photo
Friendly reminder: Dark Souls is free on Games with Gold first of June
by Brett Makedonski

It's about that time of month when Microsoft clears its throat and lets everyone know what the upcoming titles in the Games with Gold program are going to be. But, it's already done that earlier in May, and Jordan already told you about it. But, that feels like a million years ago, and chances are you got lost gazing into Jordan's dreamy avatar, so here's a quick reminder.

On June 1, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download Dark Souls for free. June 16 ends the Souls opportunity, and sees Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition take over. Sometime this month, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault will be free on Xbox One, but those dates aren't known yet.

Now go back to staring at Jordan.

Phil Spencer doesn't think Microsoft will get into gaming handhelds

Nintendo and Sony seem to have a lock on the dedicated gaming handheld scene, with the former doing much better than the latter. Of the three major console manufacturers, Microsoft is the odd man out, as it's never shown any ...

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge
by Max Scoville



This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. 

So, here's what we did instead.

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Xbox Tattletale Program
by Bill Zoeker

Max had to leave early this week to go stay in a horse cottage and attend a zoo wedding or something, so we farted out Dumb Idiot Ideas pretty quickly. I had the idea: what if the Xbox One, with all of its voice recognition, had a parental control that alerted parents when their kids acted like dicks online? Shitty kids are probably the biggest reason I don't do more online multiplayer, and I know I'm not alone in wishing there were some way to curb that nuisance. Enjoy our thoughts, and Max's strained trash-talking.

14-year Xbox veteran Marc Whitten leaves Microsoft photo
14-year Xbox veteran Marc Whitten leaves Microsoft
by Steven Hansen

Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer of Xbox, joined Microsoft in 2000, helping to build the original Xbox and Xbox Live, and release two subsequent consoles. Microsoft has announced his departure from the company to take the same role at Sonos, which makes speakers and things. 

"I have had the extreme pleasure over the last 14 years to work on the greatest product with the greatest team and for the greatest community,” Whitten said. "Xbox is so special because of the amazing team I've had the opportunity to work with and because our fans are the most incredible fans on the planet. It has been the highlight of my career to work on a product so loved. It's incredibly tough to leave but I am confident the best days are ahead for Xbox fans, in the capable hands of a very talented team."

Tretton, now Whitten. Crazy times.
