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...

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...

Quantum Break's Xbox One X patch is hysterically large

It isn't really a surprise to find out that a game is 40+ GB in this day and age. Its kind of a sad reality, but it makes some sense. Impressive graphics are gonna eat up space. What is really pushing it is when an upgrade patch for a game ...

I love me a good piece of concept art. Some of my favorites are from artist Simon Andersen (who created Owlboy), specifically his re-imagining of certain retro classics on other platforms. This "Cuphead meets Kingdom Hearts" mashup fro...

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&...

Review in Progress: Forza Motorsport 7

The Forza Motorsport series has somehow become Microsoft’s flagship franchise for the Xbox brand. Regardless of how Halo launched the console into prominence in 2001 or how Gears of War blazed a whole new trail of third-person, cover-...
