I'm feeling June's Games with Gold lineup

While I wasn't all that thrilled with this month's Games with Gold lineup (Defense Grid 2, Costume Quest 2, GRID 2, and Peggle), the next batch of free-with-Xbox-Live-Gold titles speaks to me. Gold members will be able to download Goat Simu...   read

Ah, here we are: today we have 1) the first screenshots of Madden 17, 2) the Madden 17 cover athlete reveal, and 3) the first Madden 17 trailer. My bet is that it is not unlike Madden 16, which I reviewed last year. EA has a blog post prai...   read
