Microsoft has launched their biggest ever gaming sale with the Xbox Store Countdown To 2017 sale, offering hundreds of games, movies, music, and television shows show at discount prices. This includes up to 60% off some of the year’s biggest titles alongside weekly and daily offers that can have even bigger reductions.
Playtonic Games, crafters of the crowdfunded Banjo-Kazooie love letter known as Yooka-Laylee, have just dropped the announcement everybody’s been waiting for….the game is nearly complete and we have a release date! You’ll be able to hop and bop with a lizard and bat April 11, 2017..for just $39.99! (This is the preorder price; it may change.) Look for it in both digital and physical form on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux.
Several additional Xbox 360 titles are making their way to the Xbox One as they have become backwards compatible. Microsoft’s Major Nelson has revealed that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Trine 2, and Astropop have all been certified so that they can be played on the latest console as long as you own either a digital copy of the game or the original disc.
Capcom has revealed its plans to sell a Collector’s Edition of its upcoming seventh mainline Resident Evil game. It’s at the higher end of limited editions with its $179.99 price tag, so what’s in it that’s purportedly worth so much?
With the release of Toys R Us and Target’s Black Friday sales ads, we now know what all the major retailers will be discounting game-wise on the fateful hour, which is now nine days away.
As we predicted, the $250 console will be the new trend. Walmart’s $250 PS4 is an especially good deal, as it comes with three games (Uncharted, The Last Of Us Remastered and Ratchet & Clank) AND the store is throwing in a $30 gift card. Their XBox One offering is the Battlefield 1 bundle, also for $250, and if you can believe it they’re still selling a 360 for $129.
Here it is barely November and already some merchants are revealing their video game-related Black Friday deals. None of the big ones yet, but what these two outfits will be offering is worth keeping in mind.
The Call of Duty-devoted site Charlie Intel has uncovered a bomb. They got their hands on a prerelease copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition, which contains the new CoD as well as Modern Warfare Remastered, the remodeled version of the 2007 classic. It isn’t sold separately; the bonus editions of Infinite Warfare are the only way to get MWR.
Last week an NES emulator called NESBox went for sale on the XBox One marketplace. It was noticed by many news outlets, who began speculating if this was just the beginning of open emulation on modern consoles. The attention, of course, also alerted Microsoft who removed NESBox immediately.
A new trailer for Playtonic Games’ Yooka-Laylee premiered today, and shows off all the major characters revealed to date running on game hardware — plus a few unnamed characters we haven’t seen before. And one we have.
The official Tomb Raider Youtube channel has put out a new video that takes an in-depth look at Blood Ties, the new chapter that will be available this fall in Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration on PS4, and as DLC on XBox One and PC. It appears an old friend is coming back.
Reviewing the latest Worms release can often be a tricky task. After all, Team17 has been creating games in this series for almost 20 years and despite all the significant changes they have made in the intervening years, such as forays into 3D, different worm classes and adding new water-based physics, most fans simply want a return to the good old days of Worms Armageddon. So while the last few instalments in the series may have missed the mark somewhat, the developers seem to have gone back to their roots with Worms W.M.D in an attempt to create the ultimate 2D artillery game.
