Today, a number of people across the country obtained access to a test build for “Gears of War” on the Xbox One, as shown in the screenshot above. Although we suspected it might be part of an as-of-yet-unannounced Gears collection including a number of games in the series, this may in fact just be a remaster of the… »
What drives a person to make up a video game rumor and spread it around the internet? They might do it for the fame or the infamy. Maybe for a laugh. Sometimes, it’s... to get a good grade on a college paper. »
Assassin’s Creed’s most beloved hero makes a welcome cameo in this week’s Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, but a change in voice casting has him sounding like a different person. »
Today, the Xbox YouTube channel released a rad new video for the upcoming role-playing game The Witcher 3. There’s just one problem: it’s not actually running on an Xbox. Whoops. »
Star Wars fans are easy marks. It’s one of our kind’s more endearing qualities, even while it tends to leave us vulnerable to being exploited. And we have been exploited, even by, perhaps accidentally, the man who created this universe and brand. »
I really like the idea of Dontnod’s episodic game choice drama-em-up Life Is Strange, but really it just ended up making me wish it would shut up and let me experience it instead. »
One week in early February, three top employees from the independent game studio Darkside Games flew to Redmond, Washington for a secret meeting with Microsoft.
Sunset Overdrive, arguably the best exclusive game on the Xbox One, has now ended the way it began: with a mix of not-quite-there meta-humor and a lot of very fun gameplay. Overall, I loved this game and am grateful that its last DLC gave me a gun that drops satellites on my enemies. »

Ok. This looks cool. What was going to be a single side-scrolling Assassin’s Creed game set in 16th century China is now going to span three eras and three countries, starting on April 21. »

You can play Borderlands 2 and its associated DLC and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and its DLC today, just like you could yesterday. But this time, it’s all packaged together for the new-gen consoles in a definitive collection with some new features, like four-player splitscreen. »
