The first round of backwards compatible OG Xbox games has leaked online

News on the backwards compatibility of Original Xbox games has been sparse, but if a recent leak is to be believed, we may not have to wait much longer. On top of that, the first wave of games will thankfully include more than just Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy and will encompass some rather big names. Obviously, since this is a leak and not a confirmation, the old grain of salt cliche applies here. Twitter user h0x0d, who is known for being a reliable Microsoft leaker, posted an image of the

Super Mario Odyssey’s Peach Amiibo makes Mario wear a wedding dress

YouTube channel FamilyGamerTV managed to get both the Super Mario Odyssey Switch bundle and a few accompanying Amiibos to show off in an unboxing video. What's interesting (other than someone who is playing Super Mario Odyssey ahead of the rest of the world) is that when the YouTuber gets to the Peach Amiibo, it turns out that the figuring lets Mario wear a Wedding Dress (as noticed by Nintendo Daily News). Here's a screenshot:As you can also see in the image, the Peach Amiibo provides Mario wit

Shadow of War on Xbox One X is a “significant” jump over the PS4 Pro

Shadow of War is the latest game to get such a tech demo, and of course, the folks at Digital Foundry have gotten their hands on it. Check it out:For me, the most striking comparison was the draw distance shot they show off on both consoles. This one, to be exact:The big thing with the PS4 Pro is that it has a lot more low-quality textures that you just don't get at the highest levels of performance. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. [Digital Foundry]

J.J. Abrams says Star Wars Episode 9 won’t “revel” in what’s come before, wants to take the film “elsewhere”

However, that does not mean that Abrams is adverse to taking some creative risks, which is one of The Force Awakens' biggest criticisms. Michael [Giacchino]'s worked on things like Planet of the Apes, and Star Trek, and Star Wars and these are the things of dreams. Disney is probably not going to stop the Star Wars saga at Episode 9, as spinoff films will only take the franchise (and the bottom line) so far. Star Wars, as a brand has already fiddled around with the idea of branching out via not

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon devs explain why they didn’t release a traditional single enhanced version of Sun/Moon

Instead, we are getting Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, which on the surface looked to go the route of Gen 5's Black/White 2, serving as a direct sequel. Details have already emerged that Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are not direct sequels to Sun and Moon. Producer Shigeru Ohmori backed up by explaining that players looking for a story-based experience should stick with the same version they played last time. Director Kazumasa Iwao also explained that instead of creating a singular "enhanc
