Free to Play: Team Fortress 2

The Dice Don’t Lie

The Dice Don’t Lie 

Here at Press X or Die, we tend to focus on the video part of the gaming hobby- those which you can actually press X during, if you will.

How Gideon Got His Groove Back – Magic The Gathering and Me

How Gideon Got His Groove Back – Magic The Gathering and Me 

Card games are the most widely understood, if not always the most widely played (though it wouldn’t surprise me), form of tabletop gaming most people will ever encounter. Though there exists a constantly shifting market of different games to play, new indie titles being a regular (albeit short-lived) occurrence, one has always and very probably will always stand above the rest: Magic the Gathering. While in-and-of itself MTG isn’t a complicated game to understand or play, there are several deep levels of strategy involved in playing this fantastic game and […]

Is It Time To Abandon Windows XP?

Is It Time To Abandon Windows XP? 

In May of 2007, Microsoft released a shoddy PC port of the critically acclaimed Xbox shooter Halo 2–a game that was almost 3 years old at that time–in support of its then-new Games for Windows branding and online service initiative. Response was lukewarm to say the least
