AirMech Arena Coming to Xbox Live this Summer

Xbox 360

If a free-to-play Mech game sounds like your cup of tea, Ubisoft's got a whole pot of kick-ass coming this summer. Today the company announced it will bring AirMech Arena to Xbox Live in a few short months. The game is exclusive to Microsoft, but before Xbox One-owning Titanfall fans get excited about a new, free Mech game, understand that AirMech Arena is only coming to Xbox 360.

Captain America

Captain America: The Winter Solider set an opening-weekend record for April, hauling in an estimated $96 million at the U.S. box office. That meant millions, or at least thousands, of Capt.

The only problem: there's no real Captain America 2 video game, at least not for consoles. Heck, even the one Captain America: The Winter Solider game that does exist -- for phones -- appeared quietly a full week … [Read more...]

Titanfall Xbox One

EA and Respawn are scheduled to release Titanfall for Xbox 360 next week, but not a soul has seen a screenshot or gameplay video. This has predictably fueled the Titanfall Xbox 360 vs Xbox One debate, with some gamers claiming EA's hiding something from "last-gen" console owners. According to a post by Daryl Allison, Senior Producer at Bluepoint Games, the developer of Titanfall for Xbox 360, that couldn't be farther from the truth. Allison doesn't address why neither EA nor Bluepoint has released a screenshot, but he implies that the only … [Read more...]
