Chatting About Purgatory and Glitches Too Good to Remove in Goat Simulator
Goat Simulator hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 last week, bringing insane physics and caprine-based destruction to your consoles. In observance of the launch, we got the chance to speak with lead developer Armin Ibrisagic about the hows and whys of Goat Simulator... and the answers are just as crazy as the game itself. Why a goat? Was there ever a time when the game featured a different animal as the catalyst for chaos? Armin Ibrisagic: Basically, all animals are goats. Giraffes are just really tall goats; ostriches are just goats with feathers. And wouldn’t it be ridiculous if we made a game called Tall Goat Simulator? That wouldn’t make any sense.
DICE Delivers More Star Wars: Battlefront Details
If you've already spied our Star Wars: Battlefront preview, you're well-aware that our behind-closed-doors demo was crammed with enough cool moments to choke a Sarlacc. Still, despite being treated to stomping AT-ATs, throat-crushing Sith Lords, and epic speeder-bike-versus-tree explosions, we exited our preview session craving more. Alas, you'd have more luck bullseying a womp rat than uncovering additional details on EA and DICE’s highly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront for Xbox One. Despite all the secrecy, though, DICE Senior Producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir was happy to chat with us following our demo, to discuss what we'd seen, tease what's to come, and talk about what the Battlefield developer is bringing to our favorite galaxy far, far away.

5 Things We’re Loving About Mortal Kombat X
Mortal Kombat X is finally here, and the Xbox One is now 10 times bloodier because of it. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the sequel to 2011’s epic reboot of the series, and Mortal Kombat X delivers with insane combos, interactive stages, and – of course – over-the-top Fatalities. Here’s some of the awesome new content we’ve been loving about Mortal Kombat X. One of our favorite things about 2011’s Mortal Kombat was the huge, sprawling time travel story that retconned Mortal Kombat history and set the series on a new path. So how does developer NetherRealm Studios follow up on something that big? By making a story mode that spans multiple decades... and features two generations of Mortal Kombat characters.
