Brook Wingman XB Review

There are lots of reasons to love Xbox as a platform: the power of the Series X, the affordability of Series S, the huge library of Game Pass, and more. What if you have an Xbox but prefer the PlayStation DualSense controller, though? What about that arcade stick for Switch you have lying around, or a PlayStation Taiko no Tatsujin drum controller – must they go to waste? Not at all! The simple solution is to get a Brook Wingman XB converter for Xbox. This relatively inexpensive accessory lets players use controllers from PlayStation, Switch, and more on an Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, or Xbox 360 console via both USB and Bluetooth.

Let's Take a Close Look at Carby in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the most exciting Kirby games in years. That's partially because of the game's beautiful, ruined new world and partially because of its excellent 2-player local co-op. However, the main reason The Forgotten Land is so exciting is because it introduces Kirby's best-ever form: Carby. What's a Carby? Check out this screenshot gallery for a good look.

The Ascent Has Finally Arisen on PlayStation

Neon Giant's The Ascent made waves when it launched on Xbox Game Pass last year. It was mostly notable for its detailed cyberpunk world and 4-player online co-op, though the launch version was awfully buggy as well. Now, PlayStation gamers have a chance to jack in and maybe deal with some bugs because The Ascent has just launched on PlayStation 4 and 5.

ROCCAT Kone XP Review

I've been fortunate enough to have a steady stream of PC gaming mice to check out, the last ones have been from ROCCAT. The Kone Pro and Burst Pro have been my daily mice for the last few months and I've been pretty satisfied with the quality and brand overall. The latest entry in ROCCAT's lineup is a return to the mouse that started it all - the ROCCAT Kone XP, a take on the Kone shape which is a derivative of the Intellimouse Explorer design.

We've got new story, gameplay, and preorder details for this co-op shooter.

Sniper Elite 5 Sneaking Onto Consoles, PC, and Game Pass This May

Rebellion's Sniper Elite series is the most venerable and successful series of sniping games out there. Heck, one of my first reviews for our site was 2012's Sniper Elite V2. Time flies in real life, but not so much in Sniper Elite 5, which, like previous entries, takes place during World War II. The new game sees series protagonist Karl Fairburne fighting to stop the Nazi's Operation Kraken. Xbox, PlayStation, and PC gamers will get the chance to get kraken when Sniper Elite 5 launches on May 26.

Crossplay co-op coming to PlayStation for the first time in the Borderlands series

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands: CrossPlay, Endgame, and Season Pass Details

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, Gearbox and 2K's quirky fantasy-themed Borderlands spinoff, is set to debut on March 25. We've got plenty of new details to share about the game, but the most exciting one has to be that the PlayStation version of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands will support crossplay with other platforms, something that Borderlands 3 on PlayStation does not do at present. Xbox and PC will support crossplay as well, so crossplay co-op adventures are in the cards for everybody.
