Xbox’s Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusive is temporary

Xbox's controversial exclusivity deal for Rise of the Tomb Raider may not be as ominous as PlayStation and PC gamers feared, with Microsoft admitting that the agreement is time-limited. Microsoft announced yesterday at its Gamescon opening presentation that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be an Xbox exclusive when it arrived in time for the holiday 2015 sales, but according to Xbox chief Phil Spencer, things are a little more complicated.

Batman reimagined by game designer: is this madness?

Batman reimagined by game designer: is this madness?

Tetsuya Nomura, head of Kingdom Hearts and designer for Final Fantasy, has redesigned Batman. Nomura has stepped forward with the first in a series of action figures which represent complete redesigns of classic comic characters. This strange beast of a Batman summons memories of Todd McFarlane’s vision for SPAWN, or the Batman/SPAWN crossover collection. But more than that, this is an imagining of Batman we’d have expected to find as a boss in an epic RPG.

Final Fantasy XIV PS3 to PS4 upgrades kick off today

Final Fantasy XIV has been on the PS3 game console for a while now.

Nosgoth gameplay in Beta mode: Vampire PvP on the loose

Nosgoth gameplay in Beta mode: Vampire PvP on the loose

If there was one game I did not expect to be playing this week, it was a person vs person vampire-themed free-for-all online title from Square Enix called Nosgoth. This game isn't your traditional shoot-em-up game, nor is it a horror flick. It's somewhere in-between, and it's going to be completely free to play once it's released outside of Beta mode later this year.

Call of Duty: Ghosts: why the hate?

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.

Hitman GO revealed by Square Enix: turn-based strategy gone mobile

Hitman GO revealed by Square Enix: turn-based strategy gone mobile

Though for many hardcore PC or game console gamers, the idea that the Hitman franchise would go to the mobile platform is nothing short of blasphemy, Square Enix is suggesting this week that they've got something unique on their hands. Literally saying "yes we said it: tablet/smartphone: let us explain", Square Enix Montreal went on this week to say that this game will be developed completely separately from the AAA Hitman title being created right now bi Io-Interactive.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review

We're in an era of reboots in the greater gaming universe, that's for certain, and games like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition are taking the term as lightly as possible in an upgrade from one year to the next. Like the current trend in seasons of a smartphone, Square Enix has opted to suggest: if it isn't broken, just make it look better. While we never really saw any iteration of Tomb Raider in 2013 as a title that needed some visual finessing, here it's made rather clear: sometimes you don't know what you want until it's been given to you.
