Every Xbox One exclusive scheduled to launch in 2016 (so far)

2015 was a very busy year for video games. Both the PS4 and the Xbox One seemed to find their footing, while the Wii U managed to keep its head above water and the PC continued to chug along as it does every year.

But now 2015 is over, and whether you’re ready or not, hundreds of new games are coming down the pike in 2016. This week, Microsoft is celebrating that fact by reminding us of all the exclusive games launching on Xbox One in 2016.

Games to Play in 2016

7 games I can’t wait to play in 2016

7 games I can’t wait to play in 2016

By on January 1, 2016 at 9:44 AM.

Although 2015 was undeniably an incredible year for games (and the biggest year yet for the new generation of consoles), I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be even better. Yes, there are bound to be countless sequels and spinoffs to the most popular gaming franchises, but there are plenty of original IP on the way as well. More →

Although video game emulation has been a popular pastime for gamers with an itch for retro gaming experiences, the prospect of downloading multiple pieces of software just to play old games isn’t all that alluring to casual fans of the hobby. If you’d include yourself in that group, you might want to check out the latest update for OpenEmu. More →

Fallout 4 No Kills Playthrough

What it takes to beat ‘Fallout 4’ without killing anything

By on December 29, 2015 at 2:50 PM.

What it takes to beat ‘Fallout 4’ without killing anything

One of the biggest issues I have with Fallout 4 is the repetitive nature of its quests. In fact, a popular joke among the Fallout fanbase is that the game’s quest structure is basically the same as the list of instructions that you find on dead super mutants (“Kill. Loot. Return.”). Because of this, I thought that it would be impossible to beat the game without killing anything… but it turns out I was wrong. More →

Gamer sues Bethesda after losing his wife and job to ‘Fallout 4’ addiction

No matter how much time you’ve spent with Fallout 4 since it launched last month, it probably hasn’t had as big of an impact on your life as it has one gamer’s from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. According to a report from RT, the 28-year-old man is suing Bethesda, the developer of the game, for 500,000 roubles ($7,000) after losing his job and his wife.

Video Of Super Mario Bros 3 PC Port

‘Doom’ creators made a PC version of Super Mario Bros. 3 in 1990, here’s what it looked like

‘Doom’ creators made a PC version of Super Mario Bros. 3 in 1990, here’s what it looked like

Though the original Super Mario Bros. is arguably the most iconic video game ever released, Super Mario Bros. 3 remains a classic in its own right. The graphics were next-level for the NES and the gameplay itself was and still is incredibly fun and addictive. Even today, a full 25 years after its release, you can fire up Super Mario Bros 3. and gleefully spend hours upon hours traversing through an exciting and frustrating maze of creatively designed levels. If you stroll into any video game store that sells old NES games, it’s a safe bet that Super Mario Bros. 3 will be the most expensive title available.

I’m old enough to remember when Super Mario Bros. 3 was released – you know, back when video games were sold in boxes slightly bigger than your average VHS tape – and can attest that the game was an immediate hit and lived up to the immense schoolyard hype that accompanied its release. Not surprisingly, the title was deservedly ranked as the best video game of all time by IGN. If you’re as fond of the game as I am, well, you’re going to love this little slice of previously little-known video game history.
