We're getting some Red Dead Redemption 2 news next week

Phil Spencer is movin' on up at Microsoft

Xbox head Phil Spencer has received plenty of praise over the past few years for the way that the Xbox One has changed under his leadership. It's not just external parties who have taken notice. Microsoft just rewarded Spencer in a big way....

Review: Atomega

Atomega is devilishly simple. Its premise and its gameplay loop are exactly the same: Get big so you can get bigger. It's a race to the top of the food chain. There isn't anything to overthink. Sometimes less is more. But, sometimes mo...

Whittle, don't grind

I have always been unrepentant in my love for video game grinding. Give me a billion meaningless tasks to do and, if I like the game enough, I will check them off one by one. We're not talking about collecting all the heart containers in an...

One year later, ReCore's finally pretty good

Today, September 13, is the one-year anniversary of ReCore's release. In our review, I scored it a 4 out of 10, citing a ton of technical issues and a needlessly drawn-out end-game as factors that overshadowed how good the first two-thirds ...

Rocket League's Fall Update is going to be absolutely packed

When I met with with Rocket League creative director Corey Davis at PAX earlier this month to talk about the upcoming update, I knew it was going to be a big one. Developers rarely schedule appointments to talk about patches. It's too...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...
