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

After doubling up on free games in April, Games with Gold is back to normal next month, with four games to download on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, one of the free Xbox One games is just an extension from last month’s collection, but we’re all going to be too busy playing The Witcher 3 to worry about it anyway. More →

Bethesda Valve Skyrim Paid Mods Store

Bethesda’s experiment with paid Skyrim mods has been an epic disaster – is there any way to fix it?

Bethesda’s experiment with paid Skyrim mods has been an epic disaster – is there any way to fix it?

I’ll admit it: When Bethesda and Valve last week announced that they were going to open up a store where people could pay for individual modifications to the iconic game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I thought it was a terrific idea. My reasoning at the time was that modders do such incredible work improving and adding to Skyrim that it’d be great to see them rewarded monetarily so they’d have the time and resources to produce even better mods in the future that could drastically expand the life of the game.

Gorgeous Batman: Arkham Knight trailer shows off Robin, Catwoman and Nightwing gameplay

One of the best things about the Batman Arkham series is the option to play as characters other than Batman himself. In Arkham Asylum, the Joker was playable in a limited capacity for a few downloadable challenge maps, but Rocksteady Studios took the concept a step further in Arkham City by letting the player control Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 flings the series even further into the future

By on April 27, 2015 at 12:39 PM.

Over the weekend, Activision released the first trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, the next installment of the bestselling FPS on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Black Ops 3 will be Treyarch’s first current-gen entry into the Call of Duty series, but it appears that the team has been heavily influenced by the futuristic setting of 2014’s Advanced Warfare.

Steam Workshop Paid Content

You can now make money by modding your favorite PC games

You can now make money by modding your favorite PC games

The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.

Valve has been leading the charge with the Steam Workshop, giving Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 modders the opportunity to share their creations with a large audience, but starting this week, modders will be able to start setting their own prices for those creations and selling them directly to consumers.

There’s only one game development team working on two games that I can’t wait to play this fall: Avalanche Studios. You might remember Avalanche Studios from the fantastically chaotic Just Cause 2 way back in 2010, but the developers have been hard at work on both that game’s follow-up and another, even more intriguing project over the last five years.

MLB 15 The Show Review

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

By on April 22, 2015 at 4:32 PM.

When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.

I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.

Microsoft Xbox One E3 2015 Plans

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

It’s been a relatively slow start for the Xbox One in 2015, with hardly any exclusives to speak of save for Screamride and Ori and the Blind Forest. That’s not to say that the PS4 has been outpacing Microsoft’s console by much, but if the Xbox One is going to stand a chance of taking the lead this year, it’s going to need to have a big E3.

According to Phil Spencer, that’s exactly what Microsoft has in store. More →

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out on PC for a week now, and despite a few technical hiccups during the first few days, the critical and commercial reaction has been outstanding. Rockstar Games is getting an unprecedented amount of mileage out of GTA 5, but do you really need a second, or possibly third copy of the game?
