  • Rocket League on sale for PS4
    Posted November 25th, 2015 at 9:30 am No Comments »
    By launching for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers in July, Rocket League was able to gain significant traction through fantastic word of mouth. That special offer went away after the first month however and the game has been $20 ever since. Now though for a limited time PS+ subscribers can get it for $12 while those who don't have the service still get a discount down to $14. The deal is available through November 30. Rocket League is one of the best games of the year and it just ke...

    Posted November 9th, 2015 at 9:00 am 26 Comments »
    Today Microsoft revealed the initial list of games receiving backwards compatibility on Xbox One when the functionality launches for the system on Thursday.

Originally released November 2011, OFE was a $15 downloadable-only title. It was fairly well received, with 85/81 on Metacritic, but also followed only a year after the...
  • Konami apologizes for PES 2016 roster issues but a fix is still weeks away
    Posted November 2nd, 2015 at 4:30 pm 8 Comments »
    While Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 has garnered the highest Metacritic score for a sports game since 2013, those reviews obviously couldn't take into account developments that would occur in the weeks and months after release. Support for the series has always been shaky and in a year where publisher Konami made its intentions clear that they will be focusing on mobile game development instead of console products going forward - with the exception of the PES franchise - it's unsettling to see...
