Latest Xbox One Updates

A few weeks ago, some Kingdom Hearts III rumors about a Monsters, Inc. world started popping up. The rumor seemed mostly credible, with screenshots to back it up, but some fans remained skeptical and waited for official word from Disney or Square Enix. Luckily, they didn't have to wait too long.

D23 is currently going on in Japan, and Disney revealed two brand new trailers for Kingdom Hearts III. Head inside to check them out!

EA's Star Wars Battlefront II drew widespread backlash last year for its predatory "pay to win" implementation of in-game gambling, with the selling point multiplayer mode's progression system, high cost of unlocking popular franchise icons, and sparingly awarded rewards all revolving around loot-boxes and microtransactions. The controversy on Electronic Arts' hands grew so dire, to the point it attracted both media and government attention, that the publisher suspended in-game payments before the game's public launch.

Unfortunately, the possibility of Battlefront II's microtransactions returning since remained, and now it's official. Hit the jump for more information.

These aren't your grandparents' cartoons, kiddos.

Developer TheMeatly Games gained notoriety last year with the release of Bendy and the Ink Machine, an episodic first-person horror game that tells the sad tale of an abandoned animation studio crawling with ink-form demons. While the game's story has yet to see completion, theMeatly announced on YouTube yesterday that Bendy and crew will soon be coming to home consoles later this year, thanks to a partnership with Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC.

When it comes to tight, difficult platformers, Super Meat Boy may be the most prominent example, but there are others just as worthy of the descriptor. One such game is Celeste, a full-fledged adventure from Matt Thorson (of Towerfall fame) and Noel Berry. You may be familiar with an earlier PICO-8 game of the same name, also by Thorson and Berry, and it is this version that serves as the foundation on which Celeste is built.

Come journey with me up a mountain as I discuss why Celeste is one of the best platformers I've played in years.

Destiny 2 launched last fall to near-unanimous praise from critics, several accolades, and high anticipation from fans of the original 2014 game, but several incidents have plagued Activision and Bungie's latest project since its release. With the game's fanbase revolting against the Eververse store and Bright Engram loot-boxes, it's hard to argue against the notion that Destiny 2 is pushing hard for uncapped monetization schemes first and player enjoyment second.

With several controversies already under the Destiny sequel's belt, Wall Street analyst Doug Creutz penned a report citing that the game is "not in a good place." Read on after the jump for more details.

On this, the eve of the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ, famed Dragon Ball VAs Sean Schemmel and Christopher Sabat are throwing down tonight to finally settle the score as to who is the superior Saiyan: Earth's mightiest hero, Goku, or Vegeta, the Prince of All Saiyans.

When Microsoft launched their Xbox Game Pass initiative, the subscription service was originally designed for gamers to access a wide library of older games at a low monthly rate. The variety of available titles is nice, but fans have since spoken out on wanting to play more of the latest blockbusters on the service—and it looks like Xbox is poised to deliver.

Xbox head Phil Spencer has announced a major expansion for the service, revealing that Xbox Game Pass will soon incorporate all Xbox One-exclusive titles and Microsoft Studios games on the day they launch. Read on after the jump for more details!

We've been given a few tidbits of information about Kingdom Hearts III over the years. Most recently, a world based on Toy Story was announced, along with a 2018 release date. However, Square Enix is keeping this title under wraps as much as they can, so rumors have been running rampant.

It's fine now. Why? Because All Might is here!

My Hero Academia: One's Justice has been confirmed for a 2018 release, coming worldwide to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and—exclusively to the West—Xbox One and PC platforms. The upcoming video game adaptation of Kōhei Horikoshi's manga pits heroes against villains in a 3D arena brawler, with Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugou, and Tomura Shigaraki confirmed as playable characters so far.

However, a My Hero Academia game would be incomplete without the series' acclaimed "Symbol of Peace," and so Weekly Shōnen Jump has announced this week that All Might himself will be joining the fray. Read on after the jump for more details!

Back in 2014, Ubisoft decided to release two brand new Assassin's Creed games on the same day. Assassin's Creed Unity was released on the brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems and was widely received as a colossal failure. This overshadowed the release of the other game, Assassin's Creed Rogue, which featured the popular pirate gameplay from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and released on the older Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

If you missed Rogue because it had to live in the shadow of Unity, you're in luck. Ubisoft is remastering the game for PS4 and Xbox One, even though it's only been a little over three years since the original game launched. Head inside for more!

It looks like it's time for fans of Adventure Time and citizens of the Land of Ooo to rejoice! An open-world video game featuring many playable characters—including Finn, Jake, BMO, and Marceline—from the hit Cartoon Network show will let you freely traverse the cartoon's world very soon.

There was a point in time when 3D platformers dominated the video game market. However, gaming trends have evolved, and now most games seem to feature a more open world experience. With these larger worlds, 3D platforming games have become scarce, mostly coming from Nintendo and SEGA. But with the rise of indie game developers, this genre is being revitalized with a passion we've never seen before. A Hat in Time is one of several 3D platformers to release this year, and it represents everything you could possibly want in a modern day title from this genre.

It's nearly Christmastime, and Blizzard is releasing a new holiday event in Overwatch, with new skins and an all-new game mode. So far, we don't know for sure what these skins will look like, or even what characters they'll be released for—however, Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that Hanzo is getting a "long-awaited" skin that's been seen before in the comments, and he hinted that Junkrat and Roadhog might be getting skins as well.
