May's PS Plus lineup is somewhat decent

Seeing as how Microsoft set the bar pretty low level for May's Games with Gold, I guess Sony didn't need to do much to top them. While you could argue that the games on offer for Xbox One and 360 are better than this list, at least there ar...

Underwater adventure Abzu out this week on Xbox One

Journey art director's next game goes deep under the sea

Decades of classical conditioning have trained us to abhor water levels. The likes of Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Ocarina of Time hold strained memories of great games gone awry, if just ever-so-temporarily. We're Pavl...
