Win a copy of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition!

We meet again, possible contest winners. Over the last few weeks, we have been giving away games for various systems, and we have no intention of stopping. We’re mad with the giving spirit! MAD! Next week, we may give away all the furniture in the CEOs office! (Just kidding, please don’t fire us.)

Thus far we have given away Nintendo 3DS and PS3 games, so it’s time to look at the Xbox 360. And what game better defines the Xbox than Halo?

Last November, Microsoft celebrated the 10th anniversary of the release of Halo: Combat Evolved for the original Xbox by remastering the game and re-releasing it. The Anniversary Edition featured the original game with shiny new HD graphics (in 3D as well), online co-op play, and a whole bunch of new multiplayer options. It was once of the best games on the original Xbox, and the Anniversary Edition reminded us all why. You can read our full review here.

So here’s how you can enter for a chance to win: simply post as a comment below and let us knowwho your favorite developer/publisher is and why. Last week we asked what games you would like us to cover more, and this week we want to know who your favorite developer/publishers are for the same reason. Let us know what developers/publisher you want us to feature more often, and we will.

So that’s it. Post a comment below for a chance to win a copy of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition for the Xbox 360. Contest ends on Friday. This contest is not limited to the US, but while the game should be region free, we cannot guarantee it.  

Good luck to all!

The Nintendo Switch just got 2 surprise games — and they’re both worth grabbing
A teddy beat sits on an embroidery hoop in Stitch.

If you were unable to catch this week's Nintendo IndieWorld showcase, then you missed a surprisingly loaded show. Lorelei and the Laser Eyes got a May release date, WayForward showed off its Yars' Revenge revival, and Steamworld Heist 2 got an exciting reveal. In the midst of all those headlines, two smaller games were surprise released on the platform: Stitch and Sticky Business. Don't sleep on either of them, as they're both worth a purchase.

Both games are ports of previously released games, but both went a bit under the radar upon their original launch. Sticky Business modestly launched last summer on PC, whereas Stitch has actually been around since 2022 as an Apple Arcade exclusive. The latter even has an Apple Vision Pro version now that can be played in mixed reality. I can't blame anyone for missing either, but their Switch releases offer a good opportunity to catch up with some quiet hidden gems.

Is this Razer’s Steam Deck killer?
The Razer Kishi Ultra sitting on a table.

Razer has been oddly quiet in the burgeoning world of handheld gaming PCs. When I met up with the company at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) to learn about its new products, I was happy to hear it had an answer to the success of the Steam Deck.

But it was not the type of answer I was expecting.

The best iPhone emulators
A collage of the delta emulator.

The market for iPhone games has become so wide and diverse that it can realistically compete with most console and PC offerings. Where we once only got cheap time-wasters, we now have complete experiences that don't feel any less impressive than what the competition offers. In fact, a lot of games made for consoles are appearing on the iPhone now that it is becoming so powerful. However, older games have paradoxically been mostly absent from the app store. That all could be about to change as emulation is now allowed on iPhone, though with some caveats that any retro fan should know about before getting too excited to play all your favorite NES games on your phone. Here's what's up with iPhone emulators, as well as our picks for a few of the best ones you can get right now.
What you need to know about emulation on iPhone
Emulators on iPhone, as well as emulation in general, are in a strange legal gray zone. Previously, the only way to get an emulator on your iPhone was through some workarounds that generally involved jailbreaking your phone, That differs from Android, which has enjoyed native emulators for years. In 2024, Apple updated its App Store guidelines to allow for emulators on its store, but with some important restrictions.

Here's the exact wording: "Apps may offer certain software that is not embedded in the binary, specifically HTML5 mini apps and mini games, streaming games, chatbots, and plug-ins. Additionally, retro game console emulator apps can offer to download games. You are responsible for all such software offered in your app, including ensuring that such software complies with these guidelines and all applicable laws. Software that does not comply with one or more guidelines will lead to the rejection of your app. You must also ensure that the software adheres to the additional rules that follow in 4.7.1 and 4.7.5. These additional rules are important to preserve the experience that App Store customers expect, and to help ensure user safety."
