Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

Minecraft started out as such a simple game. You'd spawn into a world, and you'd need to find resources to build a shelter to ride out the night in. Then you'd work on building bigger and better structures until you got tired of it. These days, there's more to do than any of us could have imagined back when the game was originally released in alpha, back in 2010.

Rocket League cross-play between PC and Xbox One goes live

Rocket League cross-play between PC and Xbox One goes live

When I was a kid, you were in one of two camps: Nintendo or Sega. You'd talk with your friends about which was superior and why. Of course, the real reason that you were on either side is because that's the console that you had at home. When you played with your friends, you just hooked up another controller, and everyone had a good time.

Want to go to E3? This year you can, sort of

There was just one tiny problem that my young mind hadn't figured out yet: E3 is an industry event.

Blizzard sets up giant Overwatch action figures across the globe

Blizzard has come up with a classy, and creative, way to celebrate the upcoming release of Overwatch on May 24th: a series of huge sculptures installed in several locations around the world, depicting some of the game's characters as boxed-up action figures. And when I say huge, I mean they weigh over 3 tons, and required a crane and several forklifts to put in place, according to one witness. The boxes tower over a 6-foot tall man!

Destiny: Rise of Iron poster leak teases next expansion

Destiny fans, take notice! A leaked image of a promotional poster has given away the title of the game's next expansion, expected to be released this fall.

Someone is always trying to get some old OS or other bit of software to run on modern platforms for no other reason than nostalgia or because they wanted to.

Inactive Xbox Live Gamertags will be released tomorrow – Get ’em while they’re hot

Xbox Live has been around for quite some time now. The service first launched in 2002 on the original Xbox. At the time, the ability to play console games online with friends and strangers was a pretty novel concept. Many people signed up for the service back then, and a large number of those accounts were never transferred over to the Xbox 360, and have sat inactive ever since. And now we're finally going to be able to use the usernames that were claimed way back then.
