Rad Rodgers is now available on consoles

This news crept up on me, but Rad Rodgers is now available on Xbox One and PS4. Being released as a free update for previous owners on PC, the game now includes an additional five levels and some tuning to fix issues with game balance and p...

March's Games with Gold are an odd selection

I tend to be a bit harsh on the free game selections from both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, but March isn't looking too hot. Well, it's actually looking Superhot, because that title is being included and is the only thing I'd reco...

February's Games with Gold features some free Wang

After the relatively disappointing selection with last month's "Games with Gold" offerings, Microsoft has at least provided good games for February 2018. They are all fairly old and probably things you've already played, but they are all go...

Persona 4 Arena is now backward compatible on Xbox One

Fans of Arc System Works' Persona 4 Arena now have a reason to ditch their Xbox 360's. The game is finally backward compatible on the Xbox One, along with a bunch of random games that have nothing to do with fighting. For some odd reason, t...

Xbox Live goes free for the Battlefront II beta this weekend

The open beta for Star Wars Battlefront II is all the rage right now, but some people might not be sure if they want to pay for Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus just to play a beta. I know I wouldn't, but I also have PC as an option. If y...

Bayonetta headlines August's Games with Gold selection

For a couple of months now, the selection of Games with Gold titles hasn't been too hot. Microsoft had continuously outdone Sony's choices on PS Plus for awhile, but then Sony seemed to pick things up and provide something other than obscur...

Hard Corps: Uprising joins Xbox One backward compatibility

I figured with Microsoft already adding two games to the backward compatible list this week that we wouldn't see more. Not only have they added one of the best Contra games in a long time, but they also decided to include four other games. ...

You can now blast DAYTONNNNNAAA on your Xbox One

While we may not be getting an extreme amount of backward compatible titles on Xbox One today, at least Daytona USA is finally available on the system. The classic racing game was truly a technical marvel back in 1993 and remains a highly e...

The Games with Gold lineup for March 2017 is...okay?

I'm a little shocked at the game selection for Games with Gold next month. Usually Microsoft kills it in terms of big-name titles or critically acclaimed indie hits. This month, though, we're getting a bunch of nonsense on the Xbox One and ...

RAGE goes digital on Xbox One

Id's RAGE was sort of a cross between Fallout and Borderlands, and there was plenty to do in the post-apocalyptic wasteland caused by an enormous meteor smashing into the earth. It had a pretty good driving engine for the Mad Max ...

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...

It is a mega day for Xbox One backward compatibility

I guess adding seven games in a single day wasn't enough for Microsoft's backward compatibility service. They needed to round off the number so it wasn't odd and I'm perfectly fine with the choices they made. Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, and Be...

Xbox One's backward compatibility gets seven new games

Maybe in a move to compensate for the cancellation of Scalebound, Microsoft has updated the backward compatibility service on Xbox One with a whopping seven games today. Announced through Twitter by Major Nelson, gamers will be able to expe...

Shadowrun is now on Xbox One via backward compatibility

Shadowrun was a curious case of a shooter with impressive ideas that had a half-baked execution. I remember being ecstatic that there was finally a PC and Xbox 360 cross-play title, but the results were that PC users ended up getting the sh...

Ollie on over to your Xbox One for some Skate 3

Fans have been clamoring for it and Microsoft has finally delivered. Skate 3 is now backward compatible on Xbox One. The modern skating classic rose to popularity with the advent of Let's Play videos on YouTube and has made a weird resurgen...
