Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle raids tombs this holiday

Microsoft has just announced a new Xbox One console bundle for this holiday season, this time featuring the new Rise of the Tomb Raider game. As the follow-up the 2013 release of Tomb Raider, itself a reboot of the near 20-year old series, Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of this holiday season's biggest titles. And seeing as how console/game bundles always turn out to be big sellers, much to the chagrin of GameStop, it makes sense that Microsoft would make this their latest value package.

TBS to bring e-sports tournaments to prime-time TV

The idea that one day e-sports would become so big that video game tournaments would broadcast on live TV has been thrown around for a few years now, but it looks like the time has finally come.

Batman: Arkham Knight’s re-release for PC coming soon

Batman: Arkham Knight’s re-release for PC coming soon

Batman: Arkham Knight launched on PC in June as a veritable mess and was subsequently pulled as a result. Gamers had to wait months for the first patch that would fix those issues to arrive, but it went out only to those who already grabbed the game -- those who hadn't gotten ahold of the game before it was pulled were left without. That PC patch arrived earlier this month, and now it seems the game will be re-released in the near future.

The latter represents a 22 percent decrease over 2013’s report.
