Prince of Persia and EDF 2025 are now playable on Xbox One

I'm happy to see 2008's Prince of Persia make it to Xbox One via backward compatibility. At the time, it was a departure for the series and that understandably led to divisiveness among Prince of Persia fans, but gosh dang if it isn't a ple...

Review: Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair

I'm happy Earth Defense Force continues to exist. There's no shortage of modern video games in which your primary interaction with the world is shooting things, but so few of them are lighthearted, charming, or funny. I don't need every gam...
