Old Habits Die Hard, Especially at Microsoft's Xbox Division Old Habits Die Hard, Especially at Microsoft's Xbox Division

Ask any Windows gamer about Microsoft’s support, and you might get a few dirty looks. Ever since Microsoft made Windows Vista a requirement for Halo 2 in 2007, it’s been a series of indignities, studio closures, and Console War friendly fire, culminating in Rise of the Tomb Raider becoming a timed exclusive on Xbox…

Hot Take: E3 2017 Hot Take: E3 2017

If you’re a regular Kotaku-ite or TAYer you might know that this is where it started. Hot Takes are now a year-ish old, and I’m bringing it back around to where it began: E3. A good subtitle for this year’s E3 could be “Let’s bore you with things you already know!” or “That thing you knew about a month ago because of…

The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying

Okay, E3 2017... not a great year if I’m honest, but each conference so far has had stuff I’m interested in. Anthem and Battlefront 2 from EA, the Xbox One X (or Xb O X for short... wait a minute...), Forza, Crackdown, and OG Xbox backwards compatibility (which I’ll be sure to cover in a few weeks time... yay) from…

E3 came with a whimper, left with a… well it kind of left with a whimper too.

You ever have that occasional night when out of boredom you name off games or features you’d love to see in a future release, but rarely expect to actually see happen?

Here Are the Microsoft Twitter Bot’s Craziest Racist Rants Here Are the Microsoft Twitter Bot’s Craziest Racist Rants

Yesterday, Microsoft unleashed Tay, the teen-talking AI chatbot built to mimic and converse with users in real time. Because the world is a terrible place full of shitty people, many of those users took advantage of Tay’s machine learning capabilities and coaxed it into say racist, sexist, and generally awful things.

The Problem With Tim Sweeney's Slam Against Microsoft The Problem With Tim Sweeney's Slam Against Microsoft

I originally wrote this as a comment on the actual post but decided to turn it into an article.

Brand Loyalty is a Religion Brand Loyalty is a Religion

More of a broad topic here compared to my previous videos, one that applies to all competitors really, but the concept is why people fall into brand loyalty and certain parts of their mentality.

First off, I would not post this unless I was sure this wasn’t a hoax. But I’ve seen it reported on enough different sites to believe it to be a legitimate story.

The Vudu Facebook page had a notice that for a limited time, if you link your Vudu account to your Disney Movies Anywhere account, you’ll get a free digital copy of Monsters, Inc.

How A Deal With The Devil May Not Be Such A Terrible Idea for Cuphead How A Deal With The Devil May Not Be Such A Terrible Idea for Cuphead

One of the most exciting announcements during Microsoft’s E3 press conference was not how Halo 5 would reshape the FPS genre, nor how Forza 6 would bring 500+ cars to drool over. And it definitely was not the new $150 Xbox Elite Controller. No other title took my breath away more than the indie game Cuphead.

E3 2015 and the Birth of the New Era E3 2015 and the Birth of the New Era

It’s a new world; it’s a new day. E3 2015 has come and went, for those of us just watching the streams. While those trapped at the convention center have several more days of booths and parties and showings the big messages to the masses have been sent out. Fallout 4 is happening.

Now that the Xbox One is backwards compatible, Microsoft is conducting a poll to see which Xbox 360 games should come to the new console first. You can chime in at the Xbox feedback website.

Let's Live Chat About Microsoft's E3 2015 Conference! *IT'S OVER* Let's Live Chat About Microsoft's E3 2015 Conference! *IT'S OVER*

Hey howdy hey TAY Folk. As I’m sure most of you are aware, it’s E3 time! Time to get really excited and really disappointed about loads of new announcements from our favorite game developers. First on the schedule for the big three is Microsoft, which goes live at 9:30 PST (12:30 EDT). Last year we picked a few people…

TAY Time Chat - Returns and Free Stuff TAY Time Chat - Returns and Free Stuff

PC users have gotten some pretty amazing surprises lately, TAY. The first of which is that Microsoft is beginning to roll out the free update notices for Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade to Windows 10 when it releases in July. Some time, after a few updates and restarts, your computer will have a little Windows icon…

Why the HoloLens is a greater thing than you might think Why the HoloLens is a greater thing than you might think

If you've followed Microsoft's briefing yesterday you've heard a lot about Windows 10 and other new stuff. There were some things everybody was expecting, and some unexpected, like the HoloLens. But, hey, you might think, the Oculus Rift is already old news, nobody cares about Google Glass anymore, and Magic Leap…

Quick Poll Blip: Most Hyped 2015 Quick Poll Blip: Most Hyped 2015

Hey TAY, I was going to put together a list of TAY's most hyped games for 2015 but my expertise tends to lay squarely in the Nintendo camp. If you don't mind me asking, what's everyone looking forward to most next year? My personal big hits are the new Zelda game (Naturally), Mario Maker, and No Man's Sky but I'm sure…
