Xbox Game Pass is getting a huge addition next month

Over the past few years, Hello Games has done a lot to redeem the let down that was No Man's Sky on launch day. By serving up a string of massive, free updates, Hello Games has largely managed to sway public opinion about the game, but if you're still hesitant to take the plunge after all that's happened, it's hard to blame you. If you find yourself in that boat, you might like to know that you'll soon be able to play the game through Xbox Game Pass.

Minecraft Dungeons needs one feature that’d change the whole game

Minecraft Dungeons needs one feature that’d change the whole game

I expected Minecraft Dungeons to be like a LEGO-esque iteration of the classic dungeon crawler game Diablo. I expected that we'd get a kid-friendly blast from the past. What we got instead was a surprisingly fresh take on the combination of the game format and the Miencraft brand. And there's a lot of room for growth. All the game needs is one update.

Serious Sam 4 is seriously delayed for consoles because of Stadia

Serious Sam 4 is seriously delayed for consoles because of Stadia

Game streaming services like Google's Stadia are advertised to break down barriers that prevent gamers from playing their favorite titles the way they want. It turns out there are some barriers it just can't break down, barriers that are set up more by business considerations rather than technical limitations. Gamers will be reminded of that unfortunate reality when Serious Sam 4 launches in August on PCs and Stadia but not on consoles it was once advertised to launch on as well.

Last week, 2K Games teased the impending reveal of Mafia: Trilogy. At the time, most of us assumed that this was going to be a remaster of the first three Mafia games, and it turns out that we were correct - for the most part, at least. Seeing as the Mafia trilogy spans three different console generations, Mafia II is only game of the bunch that's actually being remastered, strictly speaking.

Conquering the Backlog Part 3: Terraria Journey’s End messed up all my plans

Conquering the Backlog Part 3: Terraria Journey’s End messed up all my plans

Another week is in the bag, which means it's time for another progress report on my New Year's resolution of working through my extensive backlog of games. I haven't had as much free to time to play games this past week, but when I have had the time, I've been chipping away at Ori and the Will of the Wisps. I'm fairly deep into that game now, but unfortunately, there's something that threatens to sideline Ori for the foreseeable future: Terraria.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 soundtrack playlist released to Spotify

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 soundtrack playlist released to Spotify

So there's something strange going on over at Spotify. It would appear that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, the game itself, has created a profile. The game - more than likely the creators of the game at Activision - are now on Spotify to release the music of the game before the game is officially released. This wouldn't normally be a newsworthy situation, but the music of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game collection is iconic - and exceedingly memorable. It's a set of songs that's seared into our brains forever.
