Pack leaders: the most promising Xbox multiplayer games of 2013

OXM - Multiplayer! It's not the spice of life, because Variety got there first, but it's easily a condiment of some standing, such as hollandaise sauce or, I don't know, bacon fat. The next generation of games will be drowning in the stuff - or at the very least, in nebulous "connected features" - as new consoles do their utmost to drag each and every last one of us kicking and screaming online, there to pay through our noses (still kicking and screaming) for the privilege of re-pigmenting a lead character's trousers via asynchronous sharing functions.

The story is too old to be commented.
