Square Enix is reprinting the original NieR in Europe

It doesn't hold up nearly as well mechanically, but if you dug the narrative themes of NieR: Automata, you'll probably dig the original NieR. The problem is that it's super hard to find at a standard retail price, as Square Enix stopped pri...

The original Bayonetta gets a stealth release today on Steam

Bayonetta was a fantastic action game. So fantastic that it's on quite a few "all time great action genre" lists. But at launch, it was a little problematic on consoles at times, especially on PS3. Along with the limited Wii U re-relea...

Ooh, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is playable on Xbox One

Even though I enjoyed it at the time, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is one of those games that utterly slips my mind. Somehow, despite its marvelous name, I flat-out forget it ever existed. That might change going forward, as the Xbox Live...

If you've been looking to relive the terrors of the Rook Islands, but no longer have an Xbox 360, Microsoft has got you covered! As announced by the official Xbox Twitter, Far Cry 3 is now available on Xbox One via backward compatibility. I...

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...

Dead Space 3 wasn't originally designed for microtransactions

For all intents and purposes, Dead Space 3 is a pretty big failure. It eschewed the ideas that the first two games were building on and contained all of the worst bits of the modern games industry. There was a microtransaction-laden system ...

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 ...

Enjoy some free multiplayer this weekend on Xbox One and PS4

Microsoft is holding a free multiplayer weekend for Xbox Live starting tomorrow. Along with the reduced barrier to entry comes the chance to play Rocket League and NBA 2K17 for free, too. Since Live is a paid service on both the 360 and One...

This ain't no fakie: Skate 3 got added to EA Access today

The Good About-Video Games Writer in me says that I should pack this standard fare news post full of cool skateboarding terms like kickflip, grind, and elbow pads. Doing so demonstrates a familiarity with both video games and skateboar...

Review: Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One

You wouldn't believe it now, but there was a time when it was hard to get your hands on any new Star Wars merchandise. A decade-long gap between the release of Return of the Jedi and the re-launching of the brand in the early '90s, back whe...

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 ...

Feel the power of love in February's Xbox Games with Gold

February is a month most closely associated with love. Xbox tries to play off this for its next set of free Games with Gold. It succeeds to some degree, but a more easily-identifiable theme might be power. Huey Lewis and the News would be p...

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...

King's Quest received a bonus epilogue episode yesterday

I'm a pretty big fan of old-school point-and-click adventure games. Grim Fandango is one of my favorites and I do have fond memories of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. You'd think I'd have been all over the episodic King's Quest game...
