Xbox One

On May 21 2013, in front of esteemed members of the press and a global internet audience of 8.5 million, Microsoft announced the Xbox One and was met with a widespread sigh from the gaming masses.

Essential Gaming: Top Five May 2011 Releases

Essential Gaming: Top Five April 2011 Releases

The total list of game releases for April feels downright anemic compared to the onslaught of high-profile releases in March, but it gives us ample time to whittle away at our backlog while still experiencing some of what April has to offer.

Here’s the five releases that we think are most likely to keep you out of the improving weather over the next 31 days.

Thankfully you’ll be able to save up that spare cash in February, right? Sorry friend, that couldn’t be further from the truth. March may be the new […]

11 for 2011: Our Most Anticipated Games

The Irish poet Oliver Goldsmith once said “A great source of calamity lies in regret and anticipation; therefore a person is wise who thinks of the present alone, regardless of the past or future.” Thankfully for video game publishers and PR companies, Mr. Goldsmith was dead wrong.

Instead, we look to the warped but wise words of Rocky Horror Picture Show transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter when he said “I see you shiver in an-tic-i-pation.”

Dream Collaborations: The Best Racing Game Never Made

Racing games take many delicious forms. Whether it’s the white-knuckled intensity of a night drive in Tokyo (Project Gotham Racing), the over-the-top enjoyment of Burnout Paradise, or the pure realism provided by sims like Gran Turismo, racing games – when done right – have a way of capturing our attention and making our heart race with […]
