Dragon Ball FighterZ (for Xbox One) Preview

If there’s a franchise that’s tailor-made for hardcore fighting games, it’s the long-running—and some would say unfortunately never-ending—Dragon Ball Z franchise. Spanning multiple series, character generations, and video game franchises, Akira Toriyama’s manga-turned-anime is all about buff humans, aliens, androids, and monkeymen trading blows in literal earth-shattering battles. Though many developers have applied their talents to the Dragon Ball Z brand, none have the hardcore fighting game résumé and respect of Arc System Works, the …

The Xbox One X is aspirational in the purest sense of the word

To get the most out of the One X, you need to spend even more than the $500 Microsoft is asking for. 4K TVs have dropped in price dramatically, so taking advantage of HDR video and UHD’s millions of pixels is less of a bank-breaking proposition. But if you’re the type who’s after pristine image quality — seemingly who the target market is here — an entry-level Vizio isn’t going to do it for you. …

The Xbox One X: Initial Impressions

It’s hard to believe that Microsoft was able to make the latest generation Xbox so compact, and yet still so much more powerful. We had the chance to check out the console ourselves, and we were rather impressed.
