The Culture: Xbox Turns 15 & Zune Would Have Been 10

The best thing that you’ve ever purchased isn’t the thing you’re most excited to get you were excited to get your hands on. It isn’t the one that you spent the most money on either. I tend to believe that the best purchase you’ve ever made is the thing that is always with you doing exactly what you want it to do. Xbox Live and Zune are like that for me. Both are celebrating birthdays this month.

The Culture: N7 Day brings ‘Mass Effect Andromeda’ trailer and more

Admittedly, I’m a recent recruit to the annual phenomenon that is N7 Day. In fact, today was the first time I ever celebrated the Mass Effect series’ annual heyday. I wasn’t around for the first two games in the series, and decided it wasn’t worth ruining the franchise by only playing the third. Electronic Arts and developer Bioware made my first N7 Day one to remember though. This morning that company shared a new Mass Effect Andromeda trailer and more.

The Culture: Polygon Chronicles the birth of Xbox LIVE

Say that the Xbox One is too big. Say that the Xbox 360 was too unreliable early on. What you can’t say is that Xbox LIVE, the service that powers the online gaming and media experience for millions of users across the world, wasn’t a game changer when it debuted with the first-generation Xbox.

The Culture: The USS Discovery from ‘Star Trek Discovery’ is, Yeah

In all honestly, I’m about as big of a Star Trek fan as you can possibly imagine. I’ve read the novels, I’ve watched all the series — sans The Original Series because there is only so much Kirk a sane person can handle. CBS All Access revealed a new Star Trek series was on the way earlier this year. At San Diego Comicon this weekend, the network detailed the title of the new show. Hold on to your captain’s chairs folks, I give you the USS Discovery of Star Trek Discovery.

The Culture: The Joker, King Of the No-Chill

By  •  The Culture

With gaming and entertainment news fairly light on this random Tuesday, I figured a chuckle would do everyone some good. But who do you turn to? Who can you count on to deliver the laughs? Me being me, lets talk about the Crown Prince of Crime. The Hokiest with Mostiest. The Joker.

The Culture: ‘Halo 5’ becomes better than any Harry Potter game

I’ve made a number of, should we say, questionable purchases over the years. None of them were weirder than the time I decided to purchase Sony’s PlayStation 2 just so I could play Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup. I’ve waited years for Electronic Arts to develop another version of the game. The ever-clever Halo 5: Guardians community must understand my struggle though. Quidditch is just one of the many fan-made activities that the game’s multiplayer now supports.

The Culture: ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is Book 8

By  •  The Culture

There hasn’t been an official new book in the Harry Potter series since 2007. The final Harry Potter movie arrived in theaters five years ago, and the Wizarding World is set to make a return to the big screen with Fantastic Beats this year. Joining that movie is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the official eighth story, according to its publishers and author J.K. Rowling.

The Culture: Game Awards 2015 voting has commenced

By  •  The Culture

Every December video game lovers in the United States collectively hold their breath as their favorite games come of for nominations. In year’s past, we’ve also had to hold our nose as Spike TV put on the most god awful award show to have ever disturbed the proverbial force. (If you think I’m kidding, you can watch this.) This December 3rd The Game Awards are back, and they’re keeping the friendly, developer focused atmosphere from last year.
