Microsoft's Games With Gold program has been a great success, and a good value for gamers. Before it was introduced, Xbox gamers were really paying the monthly (or yearly) fee for Gold, and really just getting online multiplayer.

Twitch streamer beats Dark Souls without taking any damage

Twitch streamer beats Dark Souls without taking any damage

Dark Souls is easily one of the most difficult games to come out in recent years. My playthrough of it brought back painful memories from my NES gaming days, with games like Karate Kid or Battletoads.

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

True to LEGO re-interpretive style, the next video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a comedic take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The best way to make this clear is through a new take on the original teaser trailer for the film - you know the one. The one where Finn pops up in the desert to scare the pants off everyone watching. The one where you first saw BB-8 rolling. The one where you see Rey driving her popsicle speeder bike.

9-year-old Xbox 360 case hits The US Supreme Court

9-year-old Xbox 360 case hits The US Supreme Court

It's easy to look back fondly at the Xbox 360 as the titan of last generation's console wars. In reality, it was on par with the PS3, and had a host of launch issues.

But today, the Supreme Court is preparing to hear a case regarding another of the Xbox 360's mechanical issues.
