Microsoft adds five more Xbox One backward compatible games

Have you had an urge to play Assassin's Creed III on your Xbox--wait, wait, come back. Xbox's Larry Hryb has announced five new backward compatible games for Xbox One, including the aforementioned Assassin's Creed III, Shadow Assault/Tenchu...


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...


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...


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 ...


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...


New video of unreleased GoldenEye XBLA game unearthed

Once upon a time, Rare was working on an updated port of GoldenEye 007 for Xbox 360. This remaster, in addition to having updated textures and models, would have included online play and a special split-screen online option. Whomever i...

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...


Celebrate Super Time Force's launch with A TON OF GIFS!

Super Time Force is officially out today for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. YES YES YES! We loved the game, it's a ton of fun, and you should just go buy it already what is wrong with you hurry up. Capybara is celebrating the launch by unl...

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...

Not sure how the view is in the southern hemisphere, but in the north you can look west at sunset and very clearly see Mercury is a bit up and to the (You cant see it in this picture)

Rad Party God

Path of Fire sure takes a lot of Metroidvania conventions to the way you progress through Elona, theres bunch of closed off areas until you get the proper mount to traverse it, be it by jumping over a chasm, steep cliffs or literal walled off

Double Monocles

I tried R6 Sieges outbreak Its a pretty good concept, but limited as Id play a game built around it, with more variety in weapons, maps, and enemies, and the ability to have people join your game after one guy DCs half way through


Welp, I gave Eureka a solid week in FF Its Gimme back the old relic At least then I could multitask and level up other classes or get tomestones/savage clears in while working on Eurekas just a waste of time with shit gear


Question: is there any good games out there that mix roguelike/lite elements with JRPG? Was thinking about how could it would be a game with a Chrono Trigger-like battle system (fast, lots of fun, no need to grind) with randomized dungeons and


So apparently theres a 1 in 27,000 or something chance a meteor will hit the earth in I dont like those need better odds of it hitting and sooner because the way the world seems to be going maybe imminent doom could do some

CaimDark Reloaded

Sea of Thieves is really getting a Day 1 I love


Calling it now: the butchers dog in KCD is the best character of 2018 (Please avoid telling me in the comments if he dies)


I long for the good old days


Unholy fusion of chili and It was alright
