Today, Razer is pleased to announce that a suite of products for the Xbox One coming to a gamer near you. These products include controllers, arcade sticks and more, which is pretty awesome news to find out. At this time we’ve seen very few companies team up with Microsoft.

There have been a lot of rumors, many contradictory, swirling around the Internet about the as yet unannounced successor to Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. You may have heard the names Xbox 720 and Nextbox connected to this maelstrom of malarkey. Hatred and praise for this still imaginary device have been flung, dare I say, willy-nilly (pardon my language). Everyone has something to say on the...[Read More]
Did you grow up playing the game Killer Instinct? Who didn’t own that game when growing up? Well as many of you know Rare happened to create the game during the 90’s. Rare has said on more than one occasion they’d love to create another Killer Instinct game for Xbox 360 but what was stopping them?

Most standard Xbox 360 controllers, whether they’re manufactured by Microsoft or by a third party, are pretty much the same in every way but price. That’s not the case with the Xbox 360 controller I’ve been using recently. When it comes to modding, I support it to a certain point, ranging from cosmetic changes to additional functionality. The team at EinsteinModz creates some ver...[Read More]
With each passing day, it seems that George Orwell’s vision for the future becomes more and more a reality. 1984? 2012. Monitoring systems are everywhere, and in certain cases they are celebrated. We are digitally connected in a way that is absolutely unprecedented, which provides us with the benefit of instant information retrieval and communication anywhere, any time, but also ties us into...[Read More]
This one’s a couple of days late, but I blame technology, the harsh, cruel mistress that deals us all a slap on the face at one point or another. Due to unavoidable circumstances, we were unable to record on Sunday for a Monday release. We did record Monday evening, but technology (the aforementioned harsh, cruel mistress) decided to lose our recording file. Today, we attempted to recreate o...[Read More]
2012’s Microsoft XBLA House Party jumps into gear today.

Earlier this week Kotaku reported on as of yet unconfirmed rumors that the next Xbox console will lock-out used games. For many, this seemed like a dramatic and, ultimately, unfair gesture that will hamper many people’s enthusiasm and support for the next generation.
I remember sitting in the crowded aisle of the Microsoft press conference at E3, watching the presentations with mixed reactions. Some I just could not care less about if I were paid to care less about them, while some filled me with childlike glee and anticipation. When Tim Schafer of Doublefine took the stage to present Once Upon A Monster, the Kinect based Sesame Street co-op game, I remembered...[Read More]
