PC Port Report: Charlie Murder

I don’t remember much about Charlie Murder from its original 2013 release. It was such a late Xbox 360 title that a lot of people overlooked it in favor of the looming Xbox One and PS4 launches. To make matters worse, Microsoft seemed...

Hard Corps: Uprising joins Xbox One backward compatibility

I figured with Microsoft already adding two games to the backward compatible list this week that we wouldn't see more. Not only have they added one of the best Contra games in a long time, but they also decided to include four other games. ...

Dead Space 2 and 3 are now playable on Xbox One

And with that, the Dead Space trilogy is now playable on Xbox One. Dead Space became backward compatible last year, and as of today, Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3 are tagging along too. If you no longer have your Xbox 360 game discs, all th...

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 ...

See how one of the best platformers ever was made

Even now Spelunky is a polarizing game. Some claim it's one of the best in the genre, others think it doesn't do anything special and has been over-hyped since launch. But as someone who wiled away many hours with my wife in its dark p...

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...

Far Cry 3 joins the Xbox One backward compatible list

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...
