By about 10 hours ago.

When I was young, I didn’t pay attention to the names of the developers on the boxes of my favorite games. I just loved playing good games. It would be years before I took an interest in the industry as a whole, but looking back, nearly every game I played in my formative years had the same name on the box: Rare. More →

Xbox One vs PS4 Gamescom 2015

3 huge ways the Xbox One just showed up the PS4

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor.

Despite the enormous size and scale of E3, video game companies simply can’t fit everything into a single show. That’s why it’s always worth paying attention when Cologne, Germany hosts Gamescom — Europe’s largest gaming trade fair.

It’s basically a second E3, and on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET, Microsoft will kick off the show with a live streamed briefing showcasing games we saw earlier this summer and debuting new games for the very first time. More →

Last month, Microsoft improved its Games with Gold program dramatically by giving Xbox One owners an additional free game to download every month. Xbox has always been a step behind PlayStation when it comes to rewarding subscribers of its pay-to-play online service, but this addition brings Games with Gold and PS Plus much closer to parity.

Here’s how to get Half-Life running on Android Wear

One of the chief criticisms levied at the Apple Watch in particular, and at smartwatches in general, is that there’s not really much you can do on such a small screen. So while we’re still waiting for developers to figure out how to squeeze a compelling gaming experience onto a small display, how about we sit back and watch Half-Life running on an LG G Watch.

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 3′ multiplayer beta coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in August

Considering the fact that we’ve had a new Call of Duty game to look forward to every year since 2003, it can be hard to muster up excitement for yet another entry. But having played nearly an hour of Black Ops 3 multiplayer at E3 2015 this year, I have to admit that I’m kind of excited. More →

These are the Xbox 360 games we’re most excited to replay on Xbox One

Of all the huge announcements at E3 this year, few received as much fanfare as the addition of backward compatibility on Xbox One. After years of hard work, Microsoft had finally cracked the code. Gamers will finally be able to bring their Xbox 360 libraries to the Xbox One, but there’s one important caveat: compatible games will come in waves. More →
