Outland and Gunstar Heroes are worth revisiting on Xbox One

Have you peeked at your full Xbox One digital game library recently? With all of the backward-compatible titles rolling in, I find myself paralyzed by choice and often end up just playing nothing. I'm hoping to avoid that situation with tod...   read

See the Star Wars game that was cancelled before EA got the rights

There's Star Wars: Battlefront III. There's Star Wars 1313. There's even that Darth Maul game. But no one mourns Star Wars: First Assault. According to the YouTube description, "This was a tech beta ran on Xbox Live a while back before the...   read

Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition is coming to the PS4

Abyss Odyssey was a pretty neat little action game that was built on fighting game mechanics, and in addition to the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 release, it's also coming to the PS4 as an Extended Dream Edition. The game will feature a few ...   read

All you need is Rez

Note to self: Replay Rez at least once a year

On the rare occasion I use my Xbox 360, I'm amazed the thing still works. It's laughably slow to boot up, full of games as it is, and having gone through several broken systems last generation, there's a lingering fear that this could be it...   read

Report: PSN and Xbox Live down after DDoS attack

I'm currently away from my consoles so I can't confirm this myself, but word on the street is that PSN and Xbox Live are both inaccessible. They've apparently been down off-and-on since last night. Business Insider reports that this "downti...   read

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon

It's a shame when companies delist digital-only games but it's even worse when they don't give a heads up. Capcom had the courtesy to let us know that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is coming off PlayStation Network on December 23, 2014 and Xbox...   read

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure HD has been delisted on the Xbox Live Arcade

It's  a sad day when something gets delisted on a digital storefront. In terms of physical media we don't really have anything comparable, as so many copies are generally out in the wild after any release -- even the rare games still e...   read

This week's Xbox Deals with Gold sale has Wolfenstein cheap(er)

Even though Microsoft just ended its summer's Ultimate Games Sale, it's not content to simply cease offering discounts altogether. Everything with a gun must go, apparently -- leading to some pretty decent prices on both Xbox One and Xbox 3...   read

Oh hey, an excuse to talk about Banjo-Kazooie

Before 4J Studios became involved with the console versions of Minecraft, it ported Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade -- rather well, I might add. If you haven't yet played them on Xbox 360, they're worth a revisit, and you ...   read

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood makes it to PC and Xbox 360

Press Play's puzzle-platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood has only now released on Xbox 360 and Steam. My interest in the game has certainly dwindled since its Xbox One debut back in December, but there's a reason it's taken this lo...   read

  Watch Video Super Time Force is officially out today for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. YES YES YES! We loved the game, it's a ton of fun, and you should just go buy it already what is wrong with you hurry up. Capybara is celebrating the launch by unleashing ALL the gifs. There's so many gifs that you can basically communicate in gifs to your friends. Also here's a brand new trailer. It's pretty messed up.   read

Super Time Force isn't just crazy shooty-shooty-bam-bam mayhem

Capy released a new trailer for Super Time Force today, and it shows off some of the slow motion aspects of the game. Every level contains three mysterious inter-dimensional power-ups called Shards. Shoot them and time will slow down to a ...   read

Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold

The featured titles in Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion have tended to not be compelling, I think most of us can agree. April shows signs of improvement, with Hitman: Absolution available to Xbox Live Gold members for free from April 1...   read
