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...]

FCC Net Neutrality Comments from Video Game Industry Stand Alone

PS4 vs. Xbox One

The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today reversed its Net Neutrality position from last year, redefining its definition of the Internet so the web can be regulated as a utility.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which represents the video game industry and is best known as the organizers of the … [Read more...]

Battlefield Hardline Open Beta Will Hit All PlayStation, Xbox Consoles

Battlefield Hardline

Electronic Arts has tweaked the Battlefied model for the franchise's next chapter, turning it from a war-driven game to one more akin to cops and robbers. Skeptics wanted to get into the original Battlefield Hardline beta to see how it works, but its platform exclusivity let only a few try it out.

Jamie N Commons Single “Karma” to be Battlefield Hardline Theme Song

Battlefield Hardline

Activision in 2013 looked to an Eminem single to be used in Call of Duty: Ghosts and throughout the game's marketing promotions. This year, the company's competitor, EA, has looked to an exclusive new Jamie N Commons single "Karma" to be the Battlefield Hardline theme song. Microsoft will neither confirm nor deny that the Halo 5 theme song will actually be the next single from Pharrell Williams. You do realize the Microsoft reference was a joke, yes? The other two are dead serious. EA's Visceral Games studio has … [Read more...]

Xbox 360

Microsoft has once again decided to give Xbox One owners just one free game via the Games with Gold December 2014 program, while Xbox 360 owners once again have two.
