Outland and Gunstar Heroes are worth revisiting on Xbox One

Have you peeked at your full Xbox One digital game library recently? With all of the backward-compatible titles rolling in, I find myself paralyzed by choice and often end up just playing nothing. I'm hoping to avoid that situation with tod...

Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition is coming to the PS4

Abyss Odyssey was a pretty neat little action game that was built on fighting game mechanics, and in addition to the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 release, it's also coming to the PS4 as an Extended Dream Edition. The game will feature a few ...

 
 
All you need is Rez photo

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...

Report: PSN and Xbox Live down after DDoS attack

I'm currently away from my consoles so I can't confirm this myself, but word on the street is that PSN and Xbox Live are both inaccessible. They've apparently been down off-and-on since last night. Business Insider reports that this "downti...

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon

It's a shame when companies delist digital-only games but it's even worse when they don't give a heads up. Capcom had the courtesy to let us know that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is coming off PlayStation Network on December 23, 2014 and Xbox...

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...

 
 
 
Banjo-Kazooie photo

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 ...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood makes it to PC and Xbox 360

Press Play's puzzle-platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood has only now released on Xbox 360 and Steam. My interest in the game has certainly dwindled since its Xbox One debut back in December, but there's a reason it's taken this lo...

Review: Super Time Force

Capybara Games has been demoing Super Time Force at trade shows for years now, offering players a chance to become acquainted with its neat take on side-scrolling shooters but not enough time to truly dig in. The people hovering behind you ...

Super Time Force has a release date and it's soon

"Prepare To Die DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!" It's true. There will be plenty of death when Super Time Force drops on May 14, 2014 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Capy Games has a shiny new trailer to accompany the rele...

 
 
Trials Fusion review photo

Review: Trials Fusion

There's nothing quite like Trials and, after several games in the popular racing/platforming series, fans know what to expect from developer RedLynx: more of the same. Yes, there will be a stupid, amazing theme song you'll hate yourself for...

Magic 2015 Duels of the Planeswalkers coming this summer

Magic 2015 Duels of the Planeswalkers was announced for release this summer on Xbox One, Xbox Live Arcade, Steam, and mobile devices. While not a surprise considering they've produced a new game every summer for the past 5 years, what ...

Mojang still making buttloads of money from Minecraft

Buttload. It's totally a phrase.  Mojang, the makers of the runaway hit Minecraft, doubled their net income in 2013 according to The Wall Street Journal. They made $128 million last year, and revenue wise they saw 38% from the PC versi...

Dust: An Elysian Tail passes one million sales

A bunch of us liked Dust: An Elysian Tail and it puts a smile on my face to hear that the game wasn't merely a critical success. Creator Dean Dodrill tweeted over the weekend that the game had passed one million units sold across Xbox Live ...

Pac-Man Museum out today for PSN, XBLA, and Steam

Pac-Man Museum, released today on Steam, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade, caught my eye this morning. It was my first time hearing about the game and the $19.99 price stood out. What could a compilation like this possibly include ...

 
 
Double Dragon Neon review photo

Review: Double Dragon: Neon

Beat-’em-ups are quite the strange genre to me. I grew playing many of them: Simpsons, X-Men, and Turtles in Time in the arcades were my jam. In fact, I’d say they are still my jam. That said, it’s easy to recognize their ...

Far Cry Classic coming to US, launch date revealed

Ubisoft announced Far Cry Classic quite a while ago, but things quickly went quiet -- which is understandable, seeing as how most people were too focused on news coming out of E3 to really care too much. That changed once Ubisoft ...
