September's Xbox Live Games With Gold Include Original Mirror's Edge And New RPG

Paying subscribers to Xbox Live can grab four games for “free” in September, two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. At least one of them is a very good game, maybe more!


The Red Ring Of Death Is What Made The Xbox One So Huge

This week Microsoft released the Xbox One S. It’s pretty cool. It’s smaller, leaner, lighter — all the things you expect from a console redesign. It’s also technically superior. Apparently games will run with a 10 per cent improvement in frame-rate on the Xbox One S. Pretty cool.

But the original Xbox One was huge. Ridiculously huge. Especially when you sit it next to the comparatively diminutive PlayStation 4 and the stupidly tiny Wii U.

Which begs the question: Why the hell was the original Xbox One so big?


WWE 2K16, Beyond Good & Evil Headline Xbox's Games With Gold For August

Microsoft’s revealed what games Xbox Live Gold owners will get access to next month. As a bonus, it’s been juuust long enough for someone to convince themselves that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development.


Honest Game Trailers Cross The Streams With Ghostbusters

An Honest Trailer for Ghostbusters? No, no, not the new Ghostbusters, but the 2009 video game that featured the original cast. It was unique in that writers Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd (who played Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz respectively), had a hand in the production and script, making the game an official instalment — of sorts.


Red Dead Redemption Footage From 6 Years Ago Still Looks Damn Good

Every so often, a game comes around that is so well-made and ahead of its time that years on, it almost effortlessly holds up against the current generation. Crysis is one example and now, with the introduction of Red Dead Redemption‘s Xbox One compatibility, Rockstar’s open-world western can confidently hang its hat on the same rack.


Red Dead Redemption Will Officially Be Backwards Compatible On Xbox One This Friday

Back in February, Red Dead Redemption quietly became backwards compatible on Xbox One. It was later removed by Microsoft, who claimed it was part of a “test” that wasn’t meant to be released publicly. Soon, though, everyone will get a chance to revisit one of Rockstar’s best games.


The Banner Saga 2 Headlines Xbox's Games With Gold For July

Microsoft’s announced their lineup for Games With Gold next month, with an excellent strategy game leading the charge.


Minecraft's Battle Mini Game Is Worth A Shot

The newly-launched Minecraft Battle mini game (free on consoles) is Mojang’s latest attempt to recapture some of the massive market that plays on independent servers on third-party maps. The Battle mini game is pretty simple — it’s a big free-for-all with up to eight players, where you try to kill, hide, and survive, hoping to be the last player standing.


It's The Perfect Time For Some 2D Platforming

Massive open-world 3D games are lovely, but watching presentations for dozens of them over the course of three days is exhausting. The trailer for the latest instalment of Wayforward Technologies’ Shantae series is exactly the refreshment I need.


E3 Skylander Imaginator Reveals Begin With This Hot Little Number

While Skylanders Imaginators is all about creating your own custom characters, they’d be nothing with Sensei characters to show them the way and give Activision new figures to sell. We’ll be seeing a lot of new faces during E3 this week, including Ember, the fire-based Sensei of the Sentinel class.
