Out Today: Happy Wars (Xbox One)

Happy Wars (Xbox One)

Because I'm happy

Following an accidental early release two weeks ago, Happy Wars has finally landed on Xbox One for real this time. If you've been battling online already on Xbox 360, you can transfer your save and progress right to the new Xbox One version. Happy Wars also supports local 4-player split screen action which is something of a rarity...

Out Today: Aaru's Awakening (Xbox One)

Aaru's Awakening (Xbox One)

Jumping into view

From out of nowhere, Aaru's Awakening has arrived on Xbox One. Having been made available on Steam back in February, we were aware that it was coming out. Until it actually went live though, we just had no idea when that would be! The game is a hand-drawn platformer featuring some gorgeous 2D art, and we'll be taking a closer look...

Out Today: Infinity Runner (Xbox One)

Infinity Runner (Xbox One)

Runnin' in a cyclone

Infinity Runner is a take on the mobile-centric infinite runner style of game, with depth added to include a full story which takes places over a number of levels. An arcade mode is also available, so you can take on the challenge of getting to the top of the leaderboards in Infinity mode, or in against the clock challenges. In...

Out Today: Goat Simulator (Xbox One)

Goat Simulator (Xbox One)

We're gonna need a bigger goat

If you need Goat Simulator to be explained to you, then...well...it's a bit tricky. You play a goat. That does tricks. And breaks things. It is a lot better than it sounds, honest. In Their Words: Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer...

Out Today: We Are Doomed (Xbox One)

We Are Doomed (Xbox One)

Yes we are.

Coming from indie studio Vertex Pop, WE ARE DOOMED (they like to have the title in uppercase, apparently) is a twin-stick shooter that looks like Jeff Minter got his hands on Geometry Wars and just went crazy. In Their Words: WE ARE DOOMED is a twin-stick shooter where you zap polygon baddies with an absurdly overpowered laserbeam...

Out Today: Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One)

Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One)

Not for the squeamish

In case you somehow ignored the plethora of trailers and various other promo materials, we're here to remind you that today marks the release of Mortal Kombat X. The bloody, legendary fighting series is more popular than ever these days, and it's easy to see why based on the launch trailer below. Anyone else up for a classic...

Out Today: RIDE (Xbox One/Xbox 360)

RIDE (Xbox One/Xbox 360)

Riding into the sunset

Coming from motorsports specialists Milestone, RIDE is a motorcycling game that allows you to ride street and race bikes.

The game...

Out Today: Tower of Guns (Xbox One)

Tower of Guns (Xbox One)

Towering above

Debuting on Xbox One today is Terrible Posture Games' Tower of Guns. A speedrunning FPS set in a classic arena style, the game features tons of loot, stacks of explosions, randomly generated stage layouts, and lots and lots of guns.

Out Today: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (Xbox One / Xbox 360)

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (Xbox One / Xbox 360)

The definitive version

Dark Souls II on Xbox 360 was already an incredible game, but Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin makes it even better. The new enemy placement means those who have already played DS2 will have a reason to go through it again. And when you factor in all of the DLC, better online play, and smoother framerate (on Xbox One),...

Out Today: R.B.I. Baseball 15 (Xbox One)

R.B.I. Baseball 15 (Xbox One)

A great catch?

The words Xbox and baseball don't normally go hand in hand, so most sports fans will take whatever they can get. In that case, RBI Baseball 15 has launched today on Xbox One, but don't expect the full-blown baseball experience like PS4's MLB 15 The Show, but this one could be a decent placeholder. In Their Words: The legendary...

Out Today: Pool Nation FX (Xbox One)

Pool Nation FX (Xbox One)

Cue it up for free

Games With Gold is bringing us yet another new-release title, and this time it comes in the form of the much-delayed Pool Nation FX. The prequel was pretty good fun on Xbox 360 and given that this improved version was due for release originally back in November, we're hoping that the extra couple of months of polish will serve it...

Out Today: Neverwinter (Xbox One)

Neverwinter (Xbox One)

...is coming

The Xbox One doesn't have a lot of MMO's (Japan got Onigiri) but Neverwinter is looking like it's ready to fill that void. It's been out on PC for a long time, and today Xbox One owners can try their hands at it for no cost whatsoever. We're not the biggest MMO fans here at pX, but this one definitely has us intrigued. Let us know in...

Out Today: Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! (Xbox One)

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! (Xbox One)

An odd, odd, odd, odd world

It's been available for other platforms for a while but finally, Abe and co. have made their way to Xbox One. There have been many attempts at breathing life into older titles and while some may have ended up being more "miss" than "hit", Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty could well be one of the shinier examples. We'll have a full...

Out Today: Slender: The Arrival (Xbox One)

Slender: The Arrival (Xbox One)

Nowhere to hide

Today, survival horror fans can now experience Slender: The Arrival on Xbox One which is sure to give many anxiety attacks.

Much of the gameplay involves completing set objectives — find all eight pages, reactivate a generator, etc. — while...

Out Today: Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (Xbox One)

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (Xbox One)

Looking good

We're still scratching our heads over the omission of the first game, but Borderlands: The Handsome Collection nets you the last two recent games in the series with ALL of its DLC thrown in for good measure. That's a ton of delicious Borderlands content — all for the price of a single retail game. Xbox One owners get a nice graphics...

Out Today: Ziggurat (Xbox One)

Ziggurat (Xbox One)

Can you survive the dungeon?

If the sound of a dungeon-crawling FPS with roguelike elements is something you'd be interest in, you're in luck. Ziggurat, developed by Milkstone Studios, is now available for download on Xbox One, and it mixes all previously-mentioned styles into an experience unlike anything currently on the Games Store. Seriously,...
