You can now play Destiny for free, and save your progress for when you purchase it

Destiny has been a big success so far, at least when it comes to overall sales, but that doesn’t mean Bungie is happy with the number of copies it has sold to date. The company is now letting curious players who aren’t sure whether they should spend $60 on Destiny try the game free of charge. Even more interesting, the free trial includes the option for gamers to save their progress and continue the game from where they left off as soon as they purchase the full game. More →

This is how Microsoft thinks the Xbox One will finally catch up to the PS4

With just over a month left in 2014, the Xbox One might finally be gaining ground on the PlayStation 4. For nine months straight, Sony dominated Microsoft in the console market, due to a combination of too many factors to list. But Microsoft never gave up. More →

LittleBigPlanet 3 review: Small worlds after all

By on November 19, 2014 at 1:20 PM.

I have a volatile relationship with the LittleBigPlanet series. As much as I want to love every entry, I always seem to run into things that drive me up the wall to the point that I never stick around long enough to see all the incredible inventions that players have published online. I thought that LittleBigPlanet 3 might finally be able to turn me around on the series once and for all.

PS4 vs. Xbox One One Year Later

One year later: The state of PS4 and Xbox One

One year later: The state of PS4 and Xbox One

By on November 18, 2014 at 12:10 PM.

A year ago this month, we were introduced to the next generation of game consoles: the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Despite the lack of game releases, most of us were just relieved that new consoles had finally hit the market. We’d spent nearly a decade waiting for this moment and it was finally here.

But as with any new gadget, the luster began to fade and both Sony and Microsoft had to prove that these investments of several hundred dollars were worth our time and money. One year later, we’re checking in to see how they’ve done. More →

Assassin's Creed Unity Glitches

These are the most ridiculous Assassin’s Creed Unity glitches

These are the most ridiculous Assassin’s Creed Unity glitches

Earlier this week, Ubisoft released the first Assassin’s Creed game exclusive to the new-generation consoles. Assassin’s Creed Unity takes the series back to its roots, eschewing the naval combat and complicated modern day story of Black Flag for a more traditional adventure. Unfortunately, the game shipped with its fair share of bugs, resulting in plenty of negative reviews. More →

Microsoft says Xbox One sales have ‘skyrocketed’ in recent weeks

After months of having to settle with second place, the Xbox One might finally be on the rebound. Yusuf Medhi, corporate VP of devices and studios at Microsoft, took to the Xbox Wire on Wednesday to discuss some of the recent developments in the world of Xbox, from the release of console exclusives Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive to the limited time sale that brings the price of the Xbox One below that of the PS4 for the first time since the two consoles launched.

Telltale Game of Thrones Adventure Game

This looks like the video game ‘Game of Thrones’ fans have been craving for years

This looks like the video game ‘Game of Thrones’ fans have been craving for years

It’s incredibly hard to take an established property and convert it from one medium to another. The rate of success for movies and TV shows being adapted into video games seems to be getting a little better every year (see: Shadow of Mordor, the LEGO games), but there are still plenty of franchises that have yet to have their day in the sun. Game of Thrones is one of them, but Telltale Games could finally give the fantasy phenomenon its due later this year.

‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ review: Super suit

By on November 7, 2014 at 2:40 PM.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare does not break the mold. It doesn’t lift the series to new heights, it doesn’t change the landscape of first-person shooters and it doesn’t fix the problems that previous entries have perpetuated year after year. But it does everything it needed to do, and a little bit more. More →

Video: South Park hilariously shames ‘freemium’ smartphone games

If there’s one tremendously annoying trend over the past few years, it’s been the rise of “freemium” games that are free to download but that constantly charge you money to make the game actually enjoyable. The most infamous example of this was EA’s botched Dungeon Keeper reboot where players complained that the game took hours to even really get started unless you sent the developers money via microtransactions.

GTA V In Real Life Video

Video: Crazy man runs from the cops using the same techniques that work in Grand Theft Auto

One of the things that makes the Grand Theft Auto games so fun to play is that they’re hilariously unrealistic — there’s simply no way that police would give up chasing you after you mowed down multiple civilians because you either managed to evade them for a few blocks or because you got your car painted a different color. However, it seems that one very stupid criminal didn’t get the memo that things that work in video games don’t work so well in real life, as earlier this year he led cops on a two-hour chase that saw him employ the same techniques that you use to evade police in GTA V.
