I was not expecting to like Mortal Kombat X nearly as much as I did. As a predominantly Street Fighter player, I found the last Mortal Kombat, as good as it was, a little on the clunky side. Fighters moved with too much weight and too little grace and speed. That’s not quite the case with MKX, which is fast, fluid and has been on my mind since I played it at Gamescom.

Weellll sort of. Instead, you can play as a doppelganger bodyguard surgically modified to look, sound and act just like Handsome Jack. Yay! But only if you buy the game’s DLC, or gobble up its newly announced Season Pass. Ugh.

Saints Row is known for being insanely outrageous. You only have to look at how different Saints Row IV is from the series' gangster roots. It's been for the better, but that doesn't mean it can't get crazier.

Hey there girls and kittens. It’s that time again. The time for free games. And really, I see no downside with getting a little skip row row with my Xbox Live subscription. The last few offerings from the house over on Microsoft hill have been rather solid. Here’s what’s arriving in September.

I haven’t played Call of Duty multiplayer in any serious or meaningful way in years..nor do I intend to start, though this year’s Call of Duty does actually look good. I’m one of those single player Call of Duty players, and last year’s one was, as far as I’m concerned, quite terrible. I was meant to segue back in to something about multiplayer now, but I forgot. Anyway, here’s a video showing how the game’s multiplayer supply drops work.

As you all probably know by now, Zoe just will not shut up about Shadow of Mordor, the upcoming Lord of the Rings game from developer Monolith and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive. She seems to be of the impression that it’s rather good, and that it will finally give LoTR fans the game they deserve.

One of the more common aspects of loot-heavy games like Borderlands, Diablo and most MMO’s is the ability to trade gears and equipment with your friends. It’s always nice when somebody has some bit of loot that’s just perfect for your character and gives it to you instead of selling it. You won’t be able to do this in Destiny.

The Kinect has some uses other than being the big paper weight that may or may not be watching you. Did you know that it can be used to play games too? I saw two upcoming titles at the Ubisoft stand. Shape Up or Rabbids, take your pick!

Release dates are almost irrelevant for games that require a constant online connection. Sure you could physically get the game on launch day, but you’re at the mercy of the servers when it comes to actually starting. So with Destiny on the horizon, when exactly will we be able to hop in?

Bungie’s Activision-published shared world shooter Destiny isn’t out for another two and a bit weeks. But that hardly matters – here’s its launch trailer anyway.

Oh we all love to rag on Games with Gold, don't we? It's endlessly compared to PS Plus and people enjoy calling Xbox out on having a lame program. But now they might be offering a free day to play games. Maybe.

Way back when I first got an Xbox 360 console, one of my very first games that I had on the system was the original Gears Of War. Suffice to say, I had never ever played a game like it before. It was brutal, it was fast-paced and the action was relentless. And it was almost a very, very different game when it was first being developed.
