Iron & Steel Pinball Review

Iron & Steel Pinball FX 2

It's decidedly refreshing to write this Iron & Steel Pinball review, but not for reasons you might think. On the surface it's tempting to think the positive glow is because the tables in the Iron & Steel Pinball DLC are Zen Studios' first two original tables in years. And to be fair, that's part of it. Licenses, even big ones, tend to get tired after a while. But the Iron & Steel Pinball FX2 tables are also two of Zen Studios' best pinball tables in years, which is the real reason for the warm fuzzies. As original … [Read more...]

Forza Horizon 2

Just a week or so off its Fast and Furious stand-alone content unveiling, Microsoft has announced the Forza Horizon 2 Rockstar Energy Car Pack has raced onto Xbox One.

ScreamRide Review

ScreamRide Xbox One Review

Back in 1993, Disney Software released a simply named DOS game called Coaster. At the time, the ability to design and virtually ride you own roller-coaster creation was incredible, as was seeing the visual effect your creation had on static avatars. It’s crazy to think how far we’ve come from those DOS-based creations to a time when you can read an online ScreamRide review for the game’s spiritual successor. For posterity’s sake, I’ve included a video of Coaster below. And practically speaking, it’s not much different … [Read more...]

Evolve Game Ships for PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Evolve Xbox One

After an extensive open beta, the Evolve game has shipped in its final form today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Evolve is also available for PC, for those who prefer to do their monster slaying (or playing) on the Windows platform. Evolve had had an interesting development cycle. Last year it was one of the most talked-about games of E3, but its closed beta late in 2014 had some trouble getting off the ground. The Evolve open beta was much more successful, with the four-vs-one gameplay model getting a ton of play … [Read more...]

Have Oregon Ducks Found Replacement for Marcus Mariota?

Oregon Ducks Marcus Mariota

It seemed ludicrous four weeks ago that the Oregon Ducks football team would find a replacement for Marcus Mariota anytime soon. On Monday, that seemingly crazy idea suddenly got a little less wacky, as Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams announced he was transferring to Oregon effective immediately. Adams has no guarantee of getting the nod as the Ducks starting quarterback for the 2015-16 season, but his chances are pretty high. Immediately after the College Football National Championship Game, CFB fans' … [Read more...]

Dying Light Modding Tools on the Way, Says Techland

Dying Light

When Techland's new zombie game Dying Light shipped last week, enthusiastic gamers flew right into creating mods for the open-world game. The developer's initial response was reportedly less than warm, but let's put the emphasis on "initial." Now Techland says a full suite of Dying Light modding tools is on the way - and the company wants gamers' help deciding what to include. According to a statement from Techland, "many PC players have already been creating mods that alter and revamp the game. At Techland, we want … [Read more...]

Adventure Game “Silence” Coming to PS4 in Addition to Xbox One

PS4 DualShock 4 controller

The adventure game "Silence" was announced a while back for Xbox One, PC and Mac, leaving PS4 gamers out in the cold. Daedalic Entertainment is turning that PS4 frown upside down, announcing that Silence will also be coming to PlayStation 4 in late 2015. A specific release date for Silence was not announced. Daedalic is saying all the right things about its first Xbox One and PS4 game. High production values. Narrative driven. Breathtaking graphics. It's not just flagrant PR, though, as the publisher sounds … [Read more...]

New Far Cry 4 DLC, Hurk Deluxe, Launches on Xbox One, PS4

Far Cry 4

It hasn't taken long for Ubisoft to launch a new round of New Far Cry 4 DLC, after fair (at best) reviews for its initial Far Cry 4 DLC hit Season Pass holders. Called Hurk Deluxe, the downloadable content is part of the Far Cry 4 Season Pass or can be purchased separately. Hurk Deluxe includes five missions playable in either single-player or co-op mode. Three of the missions are called Yak Farm, Blood Ruby and Hurk's Redemption, so it's quite clear Ubisoft is going for more of a narrative thread this time around … [Read more...]

Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson

Have you ever been one of those NFL fans asking your friends "what's it cost to go to the Super Bowl?"

Unless you're filthy rich, buying Super Bowl tickets is long since off the table -- they've been sold out for quite some time. But presuming you had tickets, or you just … [Read more...]
