    March 2017 "Free" Games with Gold - Evolve, Layers of Fear, and More

    March looks to be a rather interesting month for the free Games with Gold on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. One of the games included is Evolve, a game that technically no longer has its original developer working on it. The console versions of the game don't (the last I knew at least) have the latest F2P mechanics and content added to it as the PC version currently has. So that might be a thing.

    If nothing else, Xbox owners will get to play the enjoyable Layers of Fear and Borderlands...

    Speedruns for Nioh have been underway roughly a day or two after the game was released. The game has proven especially popular with runners that favor games like the Dark Souls franchise and Bloodborne. Speedrunner Distortion2 is no stranger to either of those games, often trading world records with his fellow runners over at Speedsouls. Distortion2 is the "current" world record holder (as of February 21, 2017) in Nioh with a time for doing all main missions of 1:36:51. Due to how new ...

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
