The second floor was fully packed with passionate gamers. Its safe to say that everyone in that room was excited to play the game for themselves. I never been a gears fan but now that Gears of War 4 is coming to PC via the Windows 10 store, This is a great time to jump in.

This special edition of the Xbox One S is available now and it might be the best look Xbox I have ever seen.

Best part of about living in NYC is the gaming community. You don’t have to look far to find awesome people who share the same interests. Thank you to Mika AKA redinfamy for posting this group photo.
