It is spooky to traverse through the simulated reality of the psychological thriller Transference, but it feels like countless spooky experiences I’ve had before.
I played Red Dead Redemption 2 for the first time this week, and I swiftly caused glorious chaos.
Xbox and Make-A-Wish are teaming up again for their Consoles For Kids charity drive, and the 2018 batch of custom-designed celebrity consoles are looking very pretty.
Last month, the giant rift in Fortnite’s sky closed and spat out a giant alien cube that’s stomping around the map. Players are eagerly tracking each new move, wondering what will happen when it finally stops. The cube’s latest route took it through Tilted Towers, where it destroyed what might just be Fortnite’s…
On my PlayStation 4, it’s still the late summer of 2017, because I’m in the early stages of Destiny 2. So far it’s both better and worse than I expected.
The new Tomb Raider’s freshest idea is the floating of a question: What if all this tomb raiding that Lara Croft does indicates that she is a treasure-plundering jerk who wrecks other people’s cultures and, worse, their lives?
Playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s new battle royale mode Blackout is both familiar and strange for anyone into the genre. The game is split between frantic gunplay and methodical movement. I’ve had a lot of fun with it, but its fast pace doesn’t match the battle royale experience I’m used to.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a game of extremes. Its romantic attitude towards soldiers clashes with a desire to tell a tale of mass violence and corpse-laden battlefields. It is as intimate as it is loud, and each moment captivates even if the parts are often greater than the whole.
The Mega Man 11 demo released on the Nintendo Switch yesterday and while it mostly feels like old-school Mega Man, a tiny change to how doors work somehow makes it feel like not-Mega Man. If you’ve ever played a Mega Man game, you’ve probably jumped into a boss door at one point either on purpose or by accident. Even…
Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition, the shrunk-down version of Square Enix’s RPG with adorable characters and streamlined game play, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the publisher said today.
Fortnite’s newest limited-time mode, Getaway, feels a bit like a mini-crash course in everything you need to know if you want to win in the main battle royale. The capture the flag-esque mode is full of dangerous drops and surprising turns of fortune. Matches are short but packed with new surprises. If you wanted…
I dove into the Battlefield V beta last night. While I enjoyed the tense gunfights, I’m not so sure about some of the game’s changes. From shifts in how ammo is handled to changes to weapon customization, my fun was tempered by some skepticism about what my favorite multiplayer shooter might be like at launch.
Microsoft is rolling out Alexa support for Xbox One starting with the Insider program. This new set of features, called Xbox Skill, works with the Echo and other Alexa and Cortana-enabled devices, and includes being able to power the system on. It doesn’t yet include a voice command for getting more exclusives.
Last week, the giant rift in Fortnite’s sky started spewing lightning until it finally dropped a glowing alien cube on the map. The cube has started moving and changing the landscape, encouraging players to sleuth out where it’s ultimately headed and what will happen when it gets there.
It’s been over a decade since the gaming label 2K stopped making football games to rival EA’s Madden series, but wouldn’t you know it: someone is throwing a football at the end of the trailer for 2K’s latest big basketball game. It’s there to be noticed.
The Xbox Elite Controller, which is fantastic, has only ever been available in black. Now, it’s also available in a very fetching shade of white.
A couple of recent Division 2 community flare-ups have illustrated the challenges of modern video game publishing (and purchasing), as Ubisoft slices and dices its upcoming game into numerous special editions and expansions while still trying to make players feel like they’re getting a great deal.
My editor-in-chief cheered “LEGO Stars Wars III!” at this month’s Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup, and his excitement made me excited, so maybe this is a good month for Xbox games. You also get some classic Sega action RPGs and the grim management sim Prison Architect. As always, these games are only “free” if you…
Monster Hunter: World’s dangerous Behemoth requires a lot of focus to take down. The battle, inspired by Final Fantasy XIV’s boss raids, is a huge change of pace from most fights and a hard roadblock for plenty of hunters. The extreme version of the fight makes things even harder, but a group of amazingly coordinated…
