If you caught yesterday's Xbox reveal, you were in for quite the show.  After four years in development, Microsoft unveiled the all-in-one solution for your entertainment needs: the Xbox One. For some, it was total eye candy, while others were less than amused, but you can't deny the fact that the presentation was an exciting new direction for the company. 

 

Today I'll be giving you a rundown of the Xbox One and its capabilties. While there's currently no release date (aside from "later this year") or price point for the Xbox One, you can expect to hear news about this very soon, probably during this year's E3.  Stay tuned! Now let's begin!

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 - Review

 

There are very few sports I actually enjoy playing in real life. Unfortunately, the ones I do enjoy require very specific areas to be played in -- sports like curling, surfing and golf. My family are all avid golfers and, as I grew up, I learned to appreciate the sport more and more. I will never be a pro and unfortunately don't get out as much as I would like but I still very much enjoy it when I get the chance to play. This, in turn, has always made me want to play golf video games as well. 

 

Starting with Golf on the NES and Pebble Beach Golf on the SEGA Genesis, I always found myself going back and playing them over and over. When the Nintendo Wii came out I mastered the Wii Sports golf course there as well (which, turns out, was the same as the NES Golf course, go figure). Shortly after that I started playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, since I was working at a video game store and my boss (being Scottish) insisted I start playing. This being my first HD golf game and playing with a controller, I was amazed at how highly detailed it was and how much skill was required to play the game. This made me very excited to play Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, which is EA’s most ambitious golf game yet and it did not disappoint.

Review: Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2013

Ubisoft made a smart move timing the release of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013 with the launch of Wii U. Its usual competition, Wii Fit, isn't due for a sequel until later in the year, and EA Sports Active is nowhere to be seen, making Fitness Evolved 2013 the sole option for Wii U owners looking for a fitness game. Usually lack of competition is a dangerous thing, since developers could easily skimp on quality knowing their game was the only choice available, but Fitness Evolved 2013 makes no such sacrifices. Not only has Ubisoft given us a full featured Wii U fitness game, they've delivered one of the best fitness games ever created, period.
