Infinity Ward isn't bringing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to PS3, Xbox 360

After Call of Duty: Black Ops III dropped its campaign mode in order to squeak by on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the next entry, November's Infinite Warfare, is skipping the languishing last-gen...   read

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...   read

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...   read

Michonne
  Watch Video To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement.

Goodbye Xbox 360, it was nice knowing you
