Download this app right now: Snake ’97 for iPhone is now free

Mobile gaming on smartphones and tablets still doesn’t even come close to approaching the experience afforded by dedicated video game consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but you’re crazy if you don’t realize how far things have come over the past decade. Gaming on iOS and Android devices has grown increasingly impressive over the years, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone games aren’t too shabby either. But on occasion, it’s still fun to look back at the past and enjoy some good old-fashioned nostalgia in the process. More →

Video: Assassin’s Creed Unity officially revealed in teaser trailer

We got an early glimpse of the next Assassin’s Creed courtesy of Kotaku earlier this week, and now Ubisoft has responded with an official teaser trailer of its own. It looks like the new generation game will be called Assassin’s Creed Unity, as the leak suggested, and will be set in a ridiculously good looking digital recreation of France. Ubisoft has been working on Unity for over three years, and although the team hadn’t planned on revealing footage this early in development, the leaked images apparently forced their hand. It might still be in alpha, but if this is truly in-game footage, we’re in store for one stunning Assassin’s Creed game on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year. Check out the trailer below.

Microsoft promises more 1080p Xbox One games in the future

Like it or not, one of the biggest controversies of this console generation so far is the resolution of new releases. Several websites have chronicled the differences between Xbox One games and PlayStation 4 games, exhibiting a noticeable dip in visual quality on Microsoft’s console. This divide shouldn’t last forever though, as Xbox director of development Boyd Multerer tells Total Xbox. More →

Incredible new deal makes Xbox One cheaper than a PS4

Microsoft may be a long way from slashing prices on its newest console, but Walmart seems ready to offer buyers a much better Xbox One price. In fact, the retailer is selling the Xbox One Titanfall bundle online for just $449.99, or $50 off its regular price. For that price, users get both the console and the incredibly popular game, which retails separately for $59.99, in effect slashing the Xbox One’s price even lower than Sony’s PlayStation 4, which retails for $399.99 without any games. Best Buy is also offering the same deal right now. More →

Forbes rips into Xbox One interface, says it needs a complete overhaul

The early response to Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation video game consoles has been pretty terrific on both sides. Of course enthusiastic gamers continue to “flame” the PS4 if they opt to buy an Xbox One, and vice versa, but gamers discussing their own experiences have showered both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One with praise. Expert reviews have found some issues on both sides of the fence, however, and one recent piece on Forbes draws attention to what it calls a pretty huge flaw with the latest Xbox. More →

Sony PS4 Supply And Demand

Sony says there won’t be enough PS4s to go around until summer

Sony says there won’t be enough PS4s to go around until summer

If there’s any downside to the massive demand for the PlayStation 4, it’s that some consumers still haven’t had a chance to buy the new console. According to Sony, this trend will likely continue until the “early summer months,” when supply will finally meet demand, reports The Wall Street Journal. Anxious gamers will finally get a chance to pick up a PS4 without having to resort to expensive bundles or long trips to a retailer with the console in stock. With the launch of Infamous: Second Son just hours away, demand for the console is likely to be as high as ever. We’ll keep an eye out to see if retailers struggle to keep up over the weekend.

Could Amazon and Google be the competition the game industry needs?

Could Amazon and Google be the competition the game industry needs?

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are powerful, exciting machines, but in many ways, they aren’t much more than the latest iterations on a very familiar concept. These consoles still take the shape of large, black boxes and they still play games that come on discs, which is why the rumored gaming machines from Google and Amazon are even more exciting. More →

Review: ‘Infamous: Second Son’

By on March 20, 2014 at 10:00 AM.

Infamous: Second Son made me want to move to Seattle. The brilliant, yet occasionally frustrating thing about a new generation of consoles is how distracting the visuals can be. The Seattle of Infamous: Second Son is vibrant, gorgeous and impeccably detailed, enough to lure you away from the task at hand to poke around and see just how much effort was put into the creation of this world. When you’re finally ready to get back on track, you’re going to find yourself immersed in the best single-player campaign of any game on the PlayStation 4. But is that enough? More →
