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...   read

Try to find the most enticing game in April's Xbox Games with Gold

April is a solid month for Xbox's Games with Gold program, but not in the way it usually is. Typically, of the four free titles, there are one or two standouts that makes the whole month a success. That's not quite what's happening here. I...   read

I didn't leave out a word there! The Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter IV -- that's vanilla, not Super -- is now playable on Xbox One should you ever have the burning desire to open up that time capsule. Oh, the memories. I peeked inside ...   read

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Case West now playable on Xbox One

I'll always appreciate Dead Rising 2: Case Zero for renewing my interest in the series and getting me to go back and spend more time with the original Dead Rising, a game I wanted to love but just wasn't fully clicking with. The standalone ...   read

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 ...   read

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 ...   read

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...   read

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

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...   read

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...   read
