Titanfall release date on Xbox 360 explained: “a better game a few weeks later”

This week as the Titanfall Beta gameplay comes to a close, the one group of users not able to play the game thus far comes to the forefront: Xbox 360 users. These ravenous users of the past generation’s Microsoft-made console have been rumbling about the release date for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall being later than the Xbox One / PC - that date is March 25th, mind you, while the Xbox One and PC will see the game released on the 11th. Turns out Respawn Entertainment (behind Titanfall for PC and Xbox One) are working closely with Bluepoint Games (developers behind Xbox 360 version) to make certain the game is delivered at top-notch quality.

Call of Duty: Ghosts: why the hate?

This week we're taking a look at the bigger picture when it comes to reviews of the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. When we first published our (still in progress) review of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier this year, it was shocking to see how big of a backlash was issued at the hands of gamers that'd purchased the title and disagreed with our (mostly positive) assessment on a level so great that we were accused of publishing a paid review (which, for the record, we never, ever do.) Here we're taking a peek at some of the biggest complaints users have with the game.

Titanfall Beta servers down: Microsoft working on fix

This afternoon servers are in short supply for the Titanfall Beta, owing to a bug rather than to a final limitation for the game.

You'll encounter this situation in gameplay when you see the message "no servers found."
