Review: Super Lucky's Tale

Most people didn't get a chance to play Lucky's Tale because it was relegated to a VR-only platform. Hell, I did play it, enjoyed it even, and I wasn't aware that a full-blown sequel was coming out on Xbox One until recently. Even afte...

Look for a new Home and Guide in today's big Xbox One update

After a testing period, the Xbox One fall update is now ready for the masses. These sorts of console updates tend to blur together in my mind and today's is no different. Microsoft is bringing out a lot of incremental changes, as exhaustive...

Master Chief is engraved on the inside of every Xbox One X

Look, I was a huge Halo fan growing up. I played the original trilogy of games for far too many hours, opting to kill suckers online instead of doing math homework. Today's news is, well, nothing earth-shattering, but a cute tidbit nonethel...

Are you for Forza or gaga over Gran Turismo?

Racing games are probably my least-played genre. It wasn't always that way though. I distinctly remember chipping away at unlocks for hours on end in Project Gotham, getting lost in the intricacies of fine-tuning cars in early Gran Turismo&...
