  • Xbox Boss Wants “To Give Our Games More Time” at E3
    Bald Bouncer
    Though it’s still less than three months away, Microsoft has been teasing its E3 2017 plans for some time now. We know that Project Scorpio will be a major part of the presentation but it seems the company wants to give more time for its games as well.

    This is according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer on Twitter who noted that, “I want to give our games more time on stage at E3. I sometimes feel like we rush telling the story of our games at E3.”

    This could be in reference...

  • Darksiders, Darksiders 2, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations Newest Backward Compatible
    Bald Bouncer
    Microsoft has announced three new games being added to its list of Xbox 360 backward compatible games running on Xbox One. They’re three AAA Xbox 360 games, and while they’re not ever going to be topping any lists, they’re all reasonably cool games that more people should play and try out.

    The games in question are Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Darksiders, and Darksiders 2. Now to be fair, we already knew about the former two- they had been announced as Games With Gold games...

  • Games With Gold April Ryse: Son of Rome, The Walking Dead, AC, and Darksiders
    Bald Bouncer
    April will probably be the very best month that Microsoft’s Games With Gold service has had yet- the games for this month will include four rather good titles, across Xbox 360 and Xbox One both- which means that subscribers will be getting some real bang for their buck here.

    Over on the Xbox One, the two headlining titles include Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2, and Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome. While the latter particularly was panned upon release, it is the kind of game...

  • Daytona USA Headlines New Batch Of Xbox One Backward Compatible Games
    Bald Bouncer
    The newest batch of Xbox 360 backward compatible games on the Xbox One has been revealed - it’s a relatively lower profile bunch of games this time around, with the headlining game being Daytona USA. Of course, ardent fans of the classic arcade racer will tell you that Daytona USA is better than just about any other major AAA title Microsoft could have put up on the store- honestly, they’d probably be right, too.

    The other two games that are included as part of this update are...

  • Halo Wars 2 Receives First Add-On Leader With Kinsano
    Bald Bouncer
    Ranked competitive multiplayer is still missing from Microsoft’s Halo Wars 2 but new content is still coming for the action RTS. A new leader is currently available via DLC – Lt. Colonel Morgan “Inferno” Kinsano. The add-on costs £4.79 and comes with the Season Pass.

    Having first fought for the Insurrection and then the Covenant, Kinsano is now waging war against the Banished on the Spirit of Fire. She’s an interesting personality, willing to burn down the entire Ark before...

  • Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising Will Be Available On April 4
    Bald Bouncer
    If you don’t own a PlayStation, and can’t play Persona on April 4, you’ll still have something to occupy you- Capcom has announced that Dead Rising: Frank Rising, the newest DLC for last Winter’s Dead Rising 4 which sees Frank West himself become a zombie, will be available on that date. You can purchase it for $9.99 USD, or get it as part of the Season Pass.

    However, if absurdity in your Dead Rising games is what you want, Capcom is more than happy to oblige- Frank West will...

  • Xbox Game Pass More Details Revealed: Discounts, Xbox Live, And More

    Earlier today, Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Pass, an intriguing service where, for $10 a month, costumers get to download from a catalog of over 100 games. It sounds like a great idea- like a Netflix for games, without the uncertainties that are associated with PS Now (and extended to current generation games)- essentially, like a larger scale EA Access.

    Now, some more details regarding the service have come to light- for starters, it sounds like subscribing to this service entails you to a 20% discount on Xbox one game purchases, and 10% off for add on content, Season Passes, and DLC (as long as the game itself is available in the Game Pass library). The service is also entirely independent of Xbox live Gold- you don’t need to be a subscriber of one to be a subscriber of the other. That said, naturally, if you want to play your Xbox Game Pass games online, you will need a subscription.

    There will be no limit to how many games you can download at a time, and you can play them for as long as you like, as long as your subscription does not lapse. If it does, the games become unavailable to play (unless you bought them). Any Achievements and progress for Xbox Game Pass games remain permanently attached to your account.

    On the whole, it’s a surprisingly good service with no catch. It’s good to see something like this come out of Microsoft- I think most Xbox owners would be well benefitted from subscribing to this, much like I said for EA Access previously.
