News that Microsoft has discontinued production of the Xbox 360 console was bittersweet for Todd and many other Xbox fans. Thankfully, backwards compatibility means that the games will live on, but Todd still takes time to salute an old friend.
Todd has been doing so much PC gaming lately that he’s not really paid much attention to all the rumors of upgraded versions of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But he worries that enhanced consoles releasing so soon after launch would be dangerous to the industry.
Todd dives back into the wasteland this week to tackle Fallout 4’s Automatron DLC. He runs into a fun but quirky robot companion named Ada, and wacky relationship trouble ensues. Can a man and a crazy killing robot find happiness in a post-apocalyptic world?
There is so much going on these past few weeks that Todd is compressing three column ideas into one. Strap on your seatbelt as he goes rapid-fire on Tom Clancy’s The Division, PlayStation VR pricing news and the amazing cross-play console games offer made by Microsoft.
Todd brings us a tale of two fighting games this week. Mortal Kombat XL was released as a content-packed DLC for under $20. Meanwhile, Street Fighter V came out for a full $60 and offers perhaps two hours of single player gameplay. Quite a difference.
News that Quantum Break is moving to PC instead of being a pure Xbox One exclusive title has got some people a little bit upset. But Todd, a longtime Xbox fan, doesn’t see the problem. Letting more people play a good game is not a bad thing, and the cross-buy status means that if you get the game for the Xbox, that you also own a copy for Windows. Pretty sweet deal, right?
PC gaming and games are making a big comeback, with many exclusive titles like the pending XCOM 2. So Todd is giving PC gaming another try, with an economical system that might just suit his needs. In other news, he also predicts the winner of the Superbowl this week using Madden. Panthers or Broncos?
Like many of us, Todd has been waiting it seems for a great virtual reality system forever. Now that Oculus Rift is close to release, we find a rather non-virtual factor to bring it home: a huge price tag. Is VR’s price going to keep it virtual for most gamers?
Todd is back with the second part of his personal 2015 video game honors. Who will win the coveted badass of the year award, the best developer of 2015, and which company made the smartest move in the industry? All hail the winners this week!
It’s the tail end of 2015, and that means it’s time for Todd to count down the best and worst games of the year, totally according to him. Come see where Todd ranks the best and the worst that video games had to offer this year, and see how close he gets to your personal list.
