Hitman Absolution is getting the Xbox One treatment

One thing that's always made me enjoy playing games on a PC is the fact that there are very few games that I can't go back and play whenever I want, on the same machine I play new titles on. With consoles, the ability to play older games on new hardware has been spotty, at best. Microsoft has been doing a good job of making Xbox 360 titles available since they announced the feature last year. And it looks like we have another new (old) games to look forward to.

Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer DLC detailed, dated

Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer DLC detailed, dated

Konami's Metal Gear Solid V debuted last fall, and while it was a big hit among critics and fans, there's been little in the form of new content since then. Players who enjoy the game's multiplayer component, called Metal Gear Online, will be happy to finally hear about an upcoming expansion that will introduce new maps, a new playable character, and even a new game mode.

Rocket League comes to Xbox One this month

I've personally never been much of a fan of soccer, whether it's watching it on TV, or playing it in a video game. However, developer Psyonix realized that what the sport needed was a bunch of rocket-fueled cars to liven it up. The game has been limited to the PC and PS4, however, that will be changing very soon.

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.
