When it comes down to the games, I have to admit that the Xbox One impressed me. There's a little something for most gaming tastes in the launch lineup. Despite all of Sony's PS4 momentum, it looks like Microsoft got the upper hand with their overall launch line up. Microsoft has come a long way since the disastrous E3 reveal, and shown at least this games journalist that the next generation battle may not be over before it already began after all. This launch lineup is a good start for Microsoft to meet their goal of having One Xbox to rule all the living rooms. Read More.
I will say that Xbox's marketing team is working hard to overcome a disastrous E3, and since Playstation has been pretty quiet leading up to its release, only the most hardcore gamers will continue to be swayed by the bad pre-release PR.

Think about it: video games are the chance to see yourself in a new reality, exploring and sublimating your repressed violent childhood fantasies, and often sexual desires, in a virtual world. Freud’s therapy was, in fact, all about exploring the unconscious, which was supposedly littered with repressed ideas and primitive desires both sexual and violent. With boobs, fast cars, children, blood, guts, and boobs, the wild and random world of video games can represent each of the various parts of Freud’s psychosexual stages.

As Endroi, a lovable blue robot thing, pull cubes around levels to form towers and other structures to defeat enemies and pass puzzling levels.

Infinity Ward has consistently delivered quality games but the experience overall has been one of stagnation. Ghosts exemplifies this – you have damn good campaign set pieces, a garbage story, a solid multiplayer experience and then… somehow it all ends up feeling kind of hollow. The only really endearing part of the game package is Extinction mode which I’m sure I’ll be playing for a long time but that’s not leaving a whole lot of game to recommend. Read More.
