Watch Quest could be the first must-have Apple Watch game

For some, the iPad is a simplified, portable tool for work. For others, the iPad is an overpriced gaming console (a group in which I place myself). I believe we’re going to discover something similar as the dust settles following the launch of the Apple Watch. More →

You need to watch Conan get destroyed in Mortal Kombat X

Even for people who are desensitized to video game violence, Mortal Kombat X can be pretty gruesome, particularly the closeup shots of assorted human organs being ripped out of characters’ bodies. Because of this, we were interested to see Conan O’Brien’s always-fresh take on the game when he played it this week alongside game creator Ed Boon as part of the Monday Melee gaming segment. More →

Has Nintendo written off the Wii U as a lost cause?

Hey, remember the Wii U? Nintendo would probably like to forget it at this point and VentureBeat’s Mike Minotti makes a compelling case that Nintendo is already shifting its focus to the next big thing since the Wii U at this point seems like a lost cause. More →

The best reason to buy GTA 5 on PC, even if you already own it on console

Starting tomorrow, many gamers are going to be faced with a difficult choice.

If the stunning visuals and the custom radio station aren’t enough to convince you, maybe the Rockstar Editor will be. More →

Microsoft has a plan to stop the Xbox One from blowing up your monthly electric bill

Not long ago, the Natural Resources Defense Council raised a stink about Microsoft’s failure to inform Xbox One owners about how much energy their consoles were consuming while the “Instant-on” mode was enabled. According to the council’s research, this standby mode was adding a collective $250 million to Xbox One owners’ energy bills every year. More →

Unlike its predecessors, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t going to scare you away. At least, not at first.

The Witcher 3 has been one of my most anticipated games of the past two years, but I was hesitant to get too excited about it because of the inevitable learning curve. I knew CD Projekt Red was going to kick my ass, and I had no way to know if I’d be prepared to deal with it.

Thankfully, the structure and pacing of the game has changed significantly to accommodate the new open world setting. More →
