Ain't no sweeter price than free

According to Xbox Live's resident Guru Major Nelson, Dead Island (normally $19.99) and Toy Soldiers: Cold War (normally $14.99) are available this month, free of charge, for any Games with Gold members. Games with Gold is Xbox Live's response to PlaystationPlus , offering free titles to any subscribers. True, PlaystationPlus does normally give access to a greater range of games, but two free games a month ain't so bad.

Netgear Nighthawk R7000 Gaming Router Impressions

It was only a few months ago that D-Link released their latest gaming router to the market, the DGL-5500. We put it through its paces and came away pretty impressed. Today we're going to look at another router being marketed at the high end home user, the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk. But even with advanced features and performance the Nighthawk needs to serve the average home user. Let's see how it stacks up against the competition.

Twelve Minutes of Dark Souls 2 Gameplay Footage

The chaps down at Playstation Access have graced us with some gameplay footage of Dark Souls 2. This isn't any kind of meticulously edited trailer or anything, this is straight up real in game footage being played by them and some Namco Bandai employees. And because it is Dark Souls, you will see nothing but the cold face of death in multiple forms. Besides, is there anything more entertaining than having two British dudes commenting over a series of clips from one of your most anticipated titles?

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes: A Bomb Diffusal Game

The Global Game Jam went down last week, and when you get enough crazy people in a room together, madness is to be the only outcome. Which brings us to Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, a co-op game where a player attempts to disarm a bomb as guided by someone who can't see anything they are doing. And if you don't think that's the greatest video game title in the history of time then you would be only lying to yourself.

Black Tusk Studios to follow up development

Gears of War Franchise Now Fully Owned by Microsoft

The Xbox 360 only Gears of War series will probably never know a life on any other consoles, as Microsoft paid Epic Games an undisclosed amount for exclusive rights to the franchise. While Gears of War 3 wrapped the story of Broody "Muscles" McDo-rag and my main man Dom pretty thoroughly, Black Tusk Studios is in development on the next installment to the highly influential series. Heading the new unnamed Gears of War project is Rod Fergueson, former Epic Games employee who acted as executive producer of the first three Gears games.
