Here are the 3 free games you’ll get on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in October

Over the past several months, we haven’t had many game releases to occupy our time. That’s all beginning to change, with huge games like Destiny, Forza Horizon 2 and Shadow of Mordor either already out or coming soon, but the free Games with Gold have been doing a stellar job of tiding over Xbox owners in the interim.

Hyrule Warriors review: A link to the past

Hyrule Warriors review: A link to the past

By on September 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM.

Playing Hyrule Warriors is like playing with action figures — it’s not a great representation of how a war in the world of The Legend of Zelda would actually play out, but with a little imagination, everything comes to life. Hyrule Warriors is a bit of a mess, but once you become acclimated to the oft-repeated gameplay loop, there’s plenty of fun to be had. More →

Destiny review: Lonely planets

Destiny review: Lonely planets

By on September 15, 2014 at 4:40 PM.

Destiny is one of the most high-concept releases to ever reach home consoles. Combining some of the most beloved elements of massively-multiplayer online games with the pedigree of one of the most heralded FPS developers of the past decade, it was nearly impossible to imagine a reality where Destiny didn’t live up to the hype. But that’s the reality we live in. More →

Nintendo is hosting an 8-hour live stream of the best new Wii U and 3DS games

With all the doom and gloom surrounding the Wii U, it’s easy to forget that Nintendo still (occasionally) puts out some of the best games on the market. Super Mario 3D World was certainly a contender for game of the year last year, and now Nintendo is prepping what looks to be a solid, if scant, holiday lineup for 2014. More →

You can build a gaming PC on par with the PS4 and Xbox One for $399

Ever since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One last fall, the focus of the gaming world has shifted almost entirely to consoles. Watch Dogs and Destiny have received more attention than any other games over the past year and the holiday season is right around the corner, but even as Sony and Microsoft steal the headlines, PC gaming is still growing at a rapid pace.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Review

‘Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call’ review: Take a bow

‘Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call’ review: Take a bow

By on September 11, 2014 at 9:01 AM.

It’s not easy to build a critically successful series around fan service, but that’s exactly what Square Enix has done with the Theatrhythm games. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy was a well-received rhythm game for the Nintendo 3DS that featured dozens of songs to play along to and plenty of characters to level up from the entirety of the Final Fantasy series. Curtain Call is it sequel, and although not much has changed, the additions should be more than enough to entice fans of the original. More →

Amazing new Microsoft project may bring Xbox One games to your browser

Amazing new Microsoft project may bring Xbox One games to your browser

Before Microsoft and Sony announced their new consoles, rumors had begun running rampant in regards to what these new systems might be capable of achieving. Would physical copies of games become relics of the past as digital downloads took their place? Would our lives be monitored by compulsory motion-tracking cameras? As it turned out, the future of gaming was much less exciting (and much less terrifying) than we had imagined, but the new generation has only just begun. More →

The next Xbox One update will put your friends front and center

The September update for Xbox One was one of the most substantial updates the console has seen so far, adding the long-awaited media player which had managed to evade both the Xbox One and PS4 since launch. Microsoft plans to keep the ball rolling in October with a few more major additions, most notably the new and improved Friends section which will move to the front of the dashboard for easier access.

Destiny First Impressions

Destiny first impressions: Blinded by the hype

Destiny first impressions: Blinded by the hype

By on September 9, 2014 at 5:45 PM.

I’m glad that I invested some time into the alpha and beta tests of Destiny, because I know I would have been disappointed with the game otherwise. Destiny isn’t what I expected. I don’t know if it’s what I was promised, but the ideas are spread so thin that it only seems to scratch the surface of what I’ve come to expect from an MMO, a shooter or even a Bungie title. But I think I’m enjoying it regardless. More →
