You will know (and love) most of Guitar Hero Live's newest songs

You know what they say about saving the best for last. Well, I guess they just say to do it. It's a good idea. Then everyone's like "Wow, we doubted you, but some real nice stuff happened at the end." That's Guitar Hero Live's legacy for the two weeks until the game releases. Show More Summary

Xbox head: I don't know if we can beat Sony

As this console generation nears two years-old, it's no secret that Xbox has spent the entirety of that time playing catch-up to PlayStation. Sony's platform started off with a huge lead in sales, and while Xbox may have closed the gap to some degree, PS4 still holds a sizable advantage. Show More Summary

Uncharted's Brutal difficulty is no joke

I've never cared much for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but I can relate to this video of someone banging their head against the game's hardest difficulty mode. I'm having Call of Duty flashbacks.

Sonic Boom rides again in Sonic Dash 2, out this week

Not to be confused with the microtransaction-stuffed Sonic Runners, Sonic Dash was actually a decent little Temple Runner clone released in 2013.

Review: Metal Gear Online

I've spent a considerable amount of time this week with Metal Gear Online, and despite my initial positive impressions, I'm having some big-picture issues.

Are you okay with 15GB patches for console games?

Remember the retro days where console games worked, and they couldn't be patched (and subsequently fixed?). Yep, I do, but I was also a PC gamer during that same time period -- I had the good fortune of meeting friends from all sides...Show More Summary

Check this app the next time you want to infuse something in Destiny

Rift's latest update is the biggest one since launch

Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting players back, but...Show More Summary
