Games with Gold for May continues the trend of meh

We've had this odd trend where the recent free games on offer from both Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus have been going down in quality. Looking at just Microsoft's service, the last few months have been pretty spotty. May doesn't seem ...   read

Frank West is rocking the dead look in this Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising trailer

Call me a hypocrite, but I think the trailer for Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising looks decent. The main game did basically nothing positive to change the Dead Rising formula, but playing as a zombie is something that was never even tackled. I d...   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

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

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

Microsoft is starting off the new year with some awesome Games with Gold titles

Despite not owning an Xbox One, I've been consistently tempted to make the plunge with all of the Games with Gold titles Microsoft has given out. Even the less exciting months have had at least one strong title, but January is just loaded w...   read

Xbox's Games with Gold for December includes Burnout Paradise backward compatibility

For once, the most exciting part of Xbox's Games with Gold comes not from a new release but from a very old release. It's the Xbox 360 and not the Xbox One that's the star of the show. Xbox has announced December's Games with Gold, and 2008...   read

The hackers that ruined Christmas 2014 have been arrested

I actually have quite a fond memory of Christmas morning in 2014. My cousin had come over with his family and his son wanted to play NBA 2K15. I figured, why not? I'm never going to touch the game (which came as a pack-in with my PS4), so w...   read

October's Games with Gold break out a little earlier than usual

Breaking out. It's a phrase with a couple of meanings that are relevant to next month's free games on Xbox One. Someone who's confined to a place might look to break out. Or, an athlete who suddenly performs above their regular skill level ...   read

Bejeweled 3 and more now playable on Xbox One

I still remember when Sony dissed Microsoft about not being able to share games back in 2013. It was crazy to think that a major corporation would result to petty insults to goad its rivals, but the times have certainly changed. At least on...   read
