Here are your September '16 Games with Gold, headlined by Mirror's Edge

I really love how PlayStation Plus forced Microsoft's hand in giving out benefits with Xbox Live Gold. For a long time, gamers were basically paying for the privilege of using an Xbox console with nothing to show for it (except an empty wal...   read

Here are Dead Rising 4's retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses

There are certain games I categorize as "gloriously stupid," and the Dead Rising games fit into that category. Games like this emphasize fun over reality, and are an excuse for weapon designers and modelers to let their imaginatio...   read

Major Nelson casually lets us know that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is playable on Xbox One today

I imagine Major Nelson kind of typed out the announcement of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon coming to Xbox One by way of backward compatibility today without any fervor, but this is definitely a cause to celebrate in the Carter household. Oh ...   read
