E3 2017 | Microsoft Press Conference Recap

Anthem Bioware game

Sunday afternoon, Microsoft showed the world what they have in store for the future of gaming. Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, immediately hit the ground running and absolutely refused to stop, firing off announcement after announcement in rapid succession. A total of 42 games would be shown, 22 of them exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10, and my fingers instantly started to ache prematurely because I knew I would be here for a while.

Phantom Dust Remastered Releases May 16th, Free Of Charge

Phantom Dust Remastered

Well here's some interesting news. At E3 2014, Microsoft announced they would be rebooting a cult classic original Xbox game. Phantom Dust, a unique and frankly underappreciated multiplayer action game, was met with praise but unfortunately saw little commercial success when it launched back in 2004. Many fans of the game swear by it, including multiple developers at Microsoft. So of course, due largely to financial reasons, the reboot was quietly canceled and left the

ReTurn To Sender | ReCore Review

I’ll come right out say that ReCore is rough around the edges and could have used more development time to turn this new series into something special. The general idea of the game is interesting and very reminiscent of third person action-platformers abundant on the PlayStation 2 years ago. The characters have a lot of charm, the world is imaginative and mysterious, and the sense of adventure is prominent from the start. Unfortunately, what we

Hidden Treasure | Rise of the Tomb Raider Review

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft is back and better than ever. 2013’s Tomb Raider and the subsequent “Definitive Edition” had certainly earned its latter title, but Rise takes up that mantle and improves upon the already stellar formula. Set one year after the events of Tomb Raider, the supernatural climax has been covered up by an organization known as Trinity, an ancient group obsessed with finding and securing supernatural artifacts. Lara is equally obsessed

Locke and Load | Halo 5 Guardians Review

Halo’s long-running protagonist has gone AWOL and that’s not okay with the UNSC. The campaign of Halo 5 Guardians is reminiscent of Halo 3: ODST’s campaign and has the player switch between characters from mission to mission, in this case Spartan Jameson Locke (from Halo: Nightfall) and the Master Chief. Following a number of seismic events on a number of colonies, UNSC tries to recall Master Chief back to base after a lengthy string of

It’s official – Xbox One to go Kinect-less in June!

Microsoft officially announced on Tuesday that the Xbox One would be sold without the Kinect come June 9th at a new $399 price point. This announcement is a long time coming for many gamers, as the inclusion of the motion peripheral device turned many consumers off of buying the $499 console. Microsoft had previously stated that it had no intentions of allowing the Xbox One to be sold without the extra device, but this new announcement comes reportedly as

Titanfall Deployed at the Microsoft Store

If there was one palpable feeling at the Titfanfall midnight launch event at the Microsoft Store in Scottsdale Monday night, it was eagerness. The entirety of the store was filled with customers awaiting the chance to nab their copy of the game, but the feel of this event wasn't that of a celebration, it was more anticipatory and overall restlessness to finally go home and play. However, there were plenty of raffles, freebies and live
