Mass Effect 2 and 3 are finally in Xbox Backwards Compatibility

Mass Effect is one of the most beloved RPGs from the seventh generation, a combination of a well told story and surprisingly fun gameplay that received critical acclaim when every installment released. The franchise has gained such a status that Mass Effect fans now celebrate every 7th of November as N7 Day (named after a ...

Mass Effect: Andromeda official launch postponed to 2017

Though originally planned for release in 2016, Mass Effect: Andromeda was delayed until publisher EA’s fourth fiscal quarter 2017 – meaning we could expect the game to drop somewhere between January and March. Originally reported by Destructoid, comics publisher Dark Horse seems to have inadvertently narrowed the release window down to March 21, 2017. On the ...

Madden NFL 17 Review

I’ll be honest with you – I don’t really play a lot of sports games. In fact, Madden NFL 17 is the first football game I’ve spent more than a few hours with since Madden Football 64. To my pleasant surprise, though, I actually enjoyed my time with the game. As you all know, every year comes the ...

We Happy Few – First Impressions

We Happy Few is one of the most anticipated games in recent memory. Trailers and early-access gameplay blew gamers away last year – since PAX East 2015, it’s been near impossible to talk about upcoming games without someone mentioning We Happy Few. Now, players on Xbox One and PC can finally play the game. So that’s what we’ve done! ...

Fallout 4 Review – Home, Sweet Home

Fallout 4 is one of the most highly anticipated titles of 2015. Fans of the series (including myself) have been anxiously awaiting the new installment for years, and now it’s finally in our hands. I’ve been playing Fallout 4 for a few weeks now, and though I know I’ve seen far from everything the game has to offer, ...

List of Xbox One backwards compatibility games revealed

One of the most requested features for what is now considered the current generation of consoles was backwards compatibility, an understandable demand considering how relatively sparse the games library for both the PS4 and Xbox One were at launch. Unfortunately, backwards compatibility was swept under the rug by both consoles until November 12th, when the ...

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review – Back In Sync

After standing in line for the midnight release of Unity last year and getting home to a broken game that I couldn’t even bring myself to finish (despite the enormous amount of potential that the setting provided), I was afraid for Syndicate (though, at the time, we all thought we’d be playing a game called Assassin’s Creed Victory). Would Syndicate make the ...

Top Twelve Games for Halloween

Halloween is upon us, and, for gamers, that can only mean one thing: It’s time to play (or replay) some amazing horror-based games. Video games have become just as much of a Halloween tradition as scary movies, haunted houses, and pumpkin patches. Every year, we feel an itch to turn the lights off, turn on ...

Guitar Hero Live Review – Comeback Kid

Guitar Hero Live marks the return of a series that changed the rhythm game genre forever when it began in 2005. After 2010, it seemed like the series was dead. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock launched, but it looked like that was the end of things. Industry experts declared that the era of plastic guitar controllers was over, and we ...
