The time is right for Xbox One and PS4 cross-play

Not long after Microsoft and Sony released their latest consoles, South Park did three episodes centered around the consoles (and they were a great parody on Game of Thrones, to boot). The episodes touched on a problem that gamers have faced since online gaming took off during the previous console generation. Namely, the decision of which popular console to choose.

Overwatch may let PS4 and Xbox One gamers play together in the future

Overwatch may let PS4 and Xbox One gamers play together in the future

Last month, Rocket League became one of the few games that allows gamers to play online with their friends, even if they're on different platforms. The developer, Psyonix, wanted the game to be as accessible as possible, and since a mouse and keyboard doesn't offer an edge against a controller, it was a no-brainer. When that happened, many people have started wondering if other games would soon follow suit.

Fable Fortune card game debuts after death of Lionhead

Fable Fortune card game debuts after death of Lionhead

UK developer Lionhead Studios may be dead, having closed its doors earlier this year, taking the Fable franchise with it, but the series has just re-emerged, albeit in a different form: a virtual card game. Titled Fable Fortune, the game was being developed in secret by Lionhead at the same time as the now-cancelled Fable Legends. Similar to Blizzard's Hearthstone, Fortune is a free-to-play collectible card game, and now work on it is being continued by a handful of former Lionhead employees.

Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

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.

It's nearly June, and that means it's time for Xbox Live members to get excited by some new free games.

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. But now when you choose a side in the console wars, you're generally prevented from playing with anyone that doesn't play on the same device. This is slowly changing, however.

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

When I was a kid, I dreamed of going to E3. I'd get to go and play all of the unreleased games, and be the envy of all of my friends. There was just one tiny problem that my young mind hadn't figured out yet: E3 is an industry event. Regardless of your passion for video games, you'd be turned away at the door, unless you had some credentials. But this year, E3 is changing some things up.

Blizzard sets up giant Overwatch action figures across the globe

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!
