Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 (Xbox One)

Orange you glad we didn't say banana?

There weren't a great many solid titles released for Microsoft's first foray into motion-controlled console gaming, but few could argue that Fruit Ninja Kinect was anything less than a cracking game.

Review: LA Cops (Xbox One)

LA Cops (Xbox One)

Police Brutality

Los Angeles is an odd location for a cop game. While the Los Angeles Police Department is one of the more famous precincts in America, it's famous for the wrong reasons. The LAPD is famous due to racism, unneeded brutality, and for being the catalyst for the 1992 LA riots. So unless you're trying to make some sort of larger point,...
