Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is only a few weeks away, so it might be time to clear out your backlog of Ghost Recon and other Tom Clancy games. At least, that's what Microsoft thinks, hence the Tom Clancy DLC sale on Xbox Live.

This Week in Co-Op: Developing a Conviction for Splinter Cell

I know I'm a little late to the Splinter Cell: Conviction party, but for some reason I never tried the game until this year. After reviewing the Windows Phone version for my other job, I decided to give the Xbox 360 game a chance. I enjoyed the stripped-down version, and its big brother even has both split-screen and online co-op for 2 players. How could I go wrong?

Splinter Cell Conviction's Co-Op Design: Core Principles To Encourage Co-Op Behavior

When looking at game design, a few things are necessary in order for co-op to work properly.

CES2011 Shows off New SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb Wireless Headset

CES is about gadgets. Most gadgets don’t apply to us, but when we get a solid lead on a new headset that brings players together through communication we can’t help but get a little excited. The new Steelseries Spectrum 7xb is a wireless headset that does just that for the Xbox 360.
