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...   read

Smile! Geometry Wars 2 and 3 are backward compatible on Xbox One

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is one of those games that I try to come back to each year, and I'm sure many of you hold it in similarly high regard. It's a modern-day classic! I'm also willing to bet there are leaderboard chasers among us ...   read

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...   read

Street Fighter IV and a few others join the Xbox One backward compatible list

I didn't leave out a word there! The Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter IV -- that's vanilla, not Super -- is now playable on Xbox One should you ever have the burning desire to open up that time capsule. Oh, the memories. I peeked inside ...   read

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...   read

Shadowrun is now on Xbox One via backward compatibility

Shadowrun was a curious case of a shooter with impressive ideas that had a half-baked execution. I remember being ecstatic that there was finally a PC and Xbox 360 cross-play title, but the results were that PC users ended up getting the sh...   read

Outland and Gunstar Heroes are worth revisiting on Xbox One

Note to self: Replay Rez at least once a year

On the rare occasion I use my Xbox 360, I'm amazed the thing still works. It's laughably slow to boot up, full of games as it is, and having gone through several broken systems last generation, there's a lingering fear that this could be it...   read

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure HD has been delisted on the Xbox Live Arcade

Review: Abyss Odyssey

One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while the studio's fo...   read

This week's Xbox Deals with Gold sale has Wolfenstein cheap(er)

Oh hey, an excuse to talk about Banjo-Kazooie

Before 4J Studios became involved with the console versions of Minecraft, it ported Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade -- rather well, I might add. If you haven't yet played them on Xbox 360, they're worth a revisit, and you ...   read
