At E3 in Los Angeles last month, there were several obvious points of distinction between Assassin’s Creed Origins and the 10 or so major Assassin’s Creed games before it. It’ll be the first AC in ancient Egypt. The first with stargazing puzzles and swimming hippos. One thing I heard about but didn’t see, however,…
We liked what we saw at E3 of zombie survival sim State of Decay II. The sequel still involves leveling up a group of survivors, still has permadeath. Adds online co-op (with permadeath!) and hundreds more character traits. Can a guilt-motivated groundskeeper co-exist with a fight choreographer who snores? Spring 2018…
There’s a range of games in July’s Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup, from the adorable Grow Up to the gritty Kane & Lynch 2. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active Xbox Live subscription.

Cars? The Crew 1 had them. Trucks? Motorcycles? Been there. But The Crew 2, shown off for the first time at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference has added planes and boats.
Hey, do you still have your original Xbox? And an Xbox 360? And an Xbox One? And are you planning on buying an Xbox One X? Also, do you have four Ethernet cables and seven friends? Well, guess the hell what.

There’s a new Xbox in town. There wasn’t that much of the actual hardware on show in the company’s E3 presser though, so here’s a better look at the Xbox One X’s design.
