2015 was a ridiculously good year for video games, so good that I almost hope 2016 is subpar so that I can finally catch up with all the gaming I have to do. Old franchises returned to form, some just kept rolling along and a few new players entered the arena. To me, the top two games of the year were Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider. I ended up selecting the latter as my #1, but I’ve only put a fraction of the time needed to fully explore the Boston wasteland in Fallout 4, whereas I’ve shaken everything out of the second game in the excellent resurrected Tomb Raider series. So with that caveat, here are my top 10 games of 2015, which I will be playing looooong into this year and beyond. Continue reading Killing Time’s Top 10 Video Games of 2015
If you’ve noticed 60 GB of your Xbox One hard drive disappear lately, you probably pre-ordered HALO 5: Guardians, which Microsoft has begun pre-loading on consoles around the world. The game launches October 27th exclusively on Xbox One. The game is the first in the franchise with a T-rating (I never really thought it warranted an M half the time anyway) and follows, what I thought was the best game in the franchise: HALO 4.

E3 is upon us! As gamers, this means TONS of gaming news and trailers. As the guy currently writing KT from the bottom bunk of his friend’s kids room….it means you’re going to get a quick and dirty summary, but I’d never leave you high and dry without an update. I think I’ve made it pretty clear over the years my bias from Xbox and Microsoft, so-to me-what I’m going to quickly (and by that I mean use someone else’s summary) summarize the briefing and throw up the biggest trailers from day one. We’re geeking it old school this week (no, I have no idea what that means really). Here’s Geek Tyrant’s rundown of the Xbox E3 2015 briefing, after some amazing looking trailers of games to come!

Here’s an announcement that Xbox fans have been waiting for since E3’s teaser trailer last year: Halo 5 (HALO 5: Guardians) will hit shelves fall 2015 around the same time the Steven Spielberg HALO TV show debuts on Xbox Live. Look for more details on both at E3 in just a few weeks as the rest of the schedule for this year’s games falls into place. This E3 will be as much about software as last year’s was about hardware. We have the new systems. Now how about the games? There’s going to be a whole lot of announcements like this and gamers are the winners. I thought Halo 4 was the best installment in the series, and I can’t wait for this. Continue reading HALO 5: Guardians Coming to XBOX One in 2015!
