The Xbox 360's original code name was a nod to The Matrix

Microsoft's home consoles represent a blind spot in my video game knowledge. For one reason or another, I've never owned one. But even though an Xbox has never graced my television screen, I've still spent countless hours playing 360 games ...

The underrated anouncement from Microsoft at this year's E3 is the fresh new avatars coming later this year. They are much more animate and have higher quality models than before, now resembling the park-goers from Planet Coaster. There is...

State of Decay 2 is the game I wanted the original to be

State of Decay was one of those games that quickly had me wishing for a sequel. Undead Labs was onto something with its base-building undead-survival title. The idea? Terrific. Roaming for food and ammo, picking up survivors, building out a...

Super Lucky's Tale is one delightful 3D platformer

I would call Super Lucky's Tale a pleasant surprise -- and for some, especially those who missed the original game on Oculus Rift, it will be -- but I came in expecting a charming, well-polished 3D platformer with a cute little protagonist....

Grading Microsoft's 2017 E3 press conference

The first big, big, big E3 2017 press conference has come and gone. I'm choosing not to count EA because I've already forgotten what was there. Something about a Madden story mode and Battlefront II looking like how Battlefront should've i...

Sign me up for Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Ori and the Blind Forest was such a treat and, to date, it remains one of my favorite Xbox One games as a beautiful, challenging, and at times emotional metroidvania title. (It's not too late to play it there or on PC. Go go go!). Just hear...

Crackdown 3 finally has a release date

Crackdown 3 was a big Microsoft reveal seemingly ages ago with a focus on how "cloud computing" was going to make the game very, uh, cloudy, I guess. Anyways it showed back up at Microsoft's E3 presser, as introduced by Terry Crews, and fi...
