A slew of Halo games for Xbox 360 are now playable on Xbox One through backward compatibility, and if you don't own or don't care to mess with The Master Chief Collection, that's darn good news. The timing here works out rather well. I've ...

Brink has gone free-to-play on PC after six years

We occasionally see multiplayer-focused games go free-to-play when they underperform. Evolve and Battleborn are two recent examples; publisher 2K Games eventually made them free when it was clear that residual sales had dried up, ...

Battlefield: Bad Company now playable on Xbox One

It feels like Battlefield: Bad Company came out forever ago, and with no continuation of the spin-off series in sight, it's always nice when its name pops up in the news. As of today, the Xbox 360 version is now playable on Xbox One through...

BioWare has plans for eventual Dragon Age sequels

Depending on who you ask, Dragon Age is either one of the best RPG franchises to come out of BioWare in a long time or a lot of failed potential from a once great company. While I never personally cared for the series, I do admire how the P...

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...

Why the hell haven't you played Afro Samurai?

Every time I see a discussion of underappreciated or underrated games, it's always the same ole usual suspects: Spec Ops: The Line, Binary Domain, Ninja Blade, Deadly Premonition, and so on. Whenever I bring up Afro Samurai there's nev...

Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD is being removed from Steam

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a pretty bad homage to the classic PlayStation Neversoft series. It combined the original Pro Skater with its sequel and eventually got some maps from Pro Skater 3 as downloadable content. Honestly, this is...

The Xbox 360's original code name was a nod to The Matrix

Microsoft's home consoles represent a blind spot in my video game knowledge. For one reason or another, I've never owned one. But even though an Xbox has never graced my television screen, I've still spent countless hours playing 360 games ...

Xbox's big summer sale is live

There's an ice cream truck that sometimes drives through my neighborhood during the summer. I rarely see it but I always know it's there because it's blaring that generic-yet-incredibly-specific Ice Cream Truck Music. Even though it comes b...

Xbox is gearing up for another Ultimate Game Sale

Like most platform-holders, Xbox is throwing a massive sale during the dog days of summer. Why wouldn't it? It's the perfect time of year when the seasonal lull leaves people bored enough to pick up some new games if the prices are right. ...

The Xbox Game Pass library grows a little bigger this weekend

Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service was (and hopefully continues to be) a pleasant surprise. For $10 a month, it gives you access to 100+ games. Some are Xbox One titles, others are backward-compatible Xbox 360 games, and inste...

July's Xbox Games with Gold is lacking any real standouts

July is about the most dead video games get during the calendar year. Spring and fall are for new releases, and winter is for sales. June has E3 and August is when things ramp up to the holiday season. July is for fireworks and barbecues a...

de Blob 2 gets a surprise release on Steam

It seems like just yesterday that de Blob got a release on PC (after nearly a decade of being a Wii exclusive). Publisher THQ Nordic worked their magic to make sure the game didn't stay obscure and they have done so for the game's sequel, d...

Review: Vanquish (PC)

Platinum might be a universally loved company, but not all of their games are. This is especially evident in the studio's era of licensed projects, with Korra operating as their most polarizing game to date, alongside of the contentiou...

For years now, video game entrepreneurs have tried to create something that is the "Netflix for video games." In June 2010, OnLive launched and aimed to remove the barrier of needing a high-end PC to play many PC games. In January 2014, Son...
