October 2017 Xbox Live Games With Gold

If this entry seems short, forgive me – I had an entire standard GwG article typed, and WordPress decided it would be good to just completely fail at the exact moment I saved the draft post. Anyway, here we go with October’s Games with Gold lineup. As is typical, nothing too much in the way …

First Thoughts On Destiny 2

Last night I snagged Destiny 2, in my case on the Xbox One. As I have mentioned a bit before, I genuinely enjoyed the first Destiny, and its expansions. While I didn’t do much in the way of strikes and raids, I did enjoy the main game for what it was, the world, the settings, …

Understanding Backwards Compatibility On The Xbox One – A Quick Mini-Guide

xbox logo

You wouldn’t think something like this would still be as confusing an issue as it is, but the seemingly simple idea of playing an Xbox 360 game on the Xbox One can be incredibly complex to some people. Indeed, in my work video game sales, I often get asked details on this, and when I …

We’re coming up on another month, which means, yes, another set of games free with Xbox Live Gold. Wow, that reads like a paid advertisement if I’ve ever seen one. Let’s try this again – new month, new games, same old same old. I just really need to pad these out. Anyway, yeah, September games …

The Sonic Mania Review

Sonic Mania is, in many ways, the Sonic game I’ve been waiting for since 1995. That would be the year I got Sonic & Knuckles, which was the last of the “Classic” Sonic the Hedgehog titles. After this, the series would eventually, in 1999, move into 3D with understandably different gameplay and, as games came …

First Thoughts On Sonic Mania

I’m a huge fan of the Classic Sonic the Hedgehog games, so Sonic Mania was a game I just had to play day 1, and play I did. I actually played for quite a few hours today a somewhat rare thing for me to do, and I had a hell of a good time. That …

July 2017 Xbox Live Games With Gold

Microsoft was super late on on getting out the video for July’s Games With Gold. Not just were they late on it, but they also seem to have been at quite a rush on this as the game selection seems lacking – almost as if Microsoft had gotten so wrapped up in E3 they had …

Call Of Duty: WWII – The E3 Reveal And Interview

Getting back to E3 coverage (a week and a half late, mind you) I have more footage to share of the new Call of Duty game, simply titled “Call of Duty: WWII.” It looks like it will be a fine enough game, and certainly will go back to CoD’s roots, but I have seen some …

Metro Exodus – Again, Into The Radioactive Wastes We Go

The Metro games have quite the cult following among fans of the post-apocalyptic genre. While Fallout is the most prominent example of the genre, there are many, many different game series that use similar settings: the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series being my personal favorites. There is a very similar yet still unique series, though, based off a …
