Minor league wrestler accidentally outs WWE 2K16's existence


Surprising exactly no one
Feb 26
After taking a proverbial steel chair to the back with WWE 2K15, the wrestling series seems poised to make a return to the squared circle. That's not shocking in its own right, but what's interesting is that 2K Games didn't g... read

'If you will not join, then die'
Feb 19
All right, I'll admit it: I know almost nothing about Homeworld. After reading the plot synopsis on Wikipedia (yeah journalism!), I got the gist of how things go, but with all of the alien races involved I can't really place... read

A tamed beast
Trying to pin down my exact thoughts on Evolve has been trickier than pinning down any kind of prey the game has thrown at me. I was cautious with my initial impressions of the game earlier this week, noting an uneven play ex... read feature

Evolve's launch trailer means hunting season's open


That goes for both sides
Feb 10
Some hunt for sport. Others hunt for sustenance. And, in the case of Evolve, everyone hunts because the other side is doing their damnedest to kill you. However, just because the hunt's starting today, it doesn't mean that w... read

Red in tooth and claw
If you didn't know Turtle Rock Studios was the brains behind 2008's Left 4 Dead, you could probably guess as much after a few hours with its latest game, Evolve. The zombies might be gone in favor of giant monsters and lethal... read feature

The creative director responds
Evolve will launch with twelve hunters: eight men, three women, and a robot, though it's referred to as a "he." Of the three female characters, two are medics (Val and Caira) and the other (Maggie) is a trapper. There are cur... read feature

Olly olly oxen free!

Misanthropes rejoice: Evolve's solo mode is looking good


Watch both sides of solo Defend
Jan 29
Sometimes I am in the mood for good competitive multiplayer action, and thus far Evolve has looked like it will be up to that task. Other times, I'd rather not deal with other people, and that's okay with Turtle Rock's multi... read

Borderlands players: Don't go grinding purple hauls


Please stick to the commons and the blues that you're used to

The push and pull of good intentions and capitalism
Evolve was peddling pre-order bonuses before its publisher had even shown off what the game looked like. A year later, we have a better idea what type of experience Evolve will offer when it releases next month. However, conc... read feature

Good lord, this $400 Borderlands edition has a Claptrap that's controlled with a mobile app


That's damn expensive and damn cool

Most high-end special editions of games come with the same sort of tchotchkes -- maybe a figurine, an art book -- that sort of stuff. 2K is raising the bar when it comes to limited editions, both in terms of content and pric... read

Evolve's intro cinematic is a clinic in smokin' stogies like a champ


They should've named this game 'Monster Hunter'

Evolve's opening cinematic is...well, it's pretty much everything you'd expect. It's a gussied-up version of the game as if it were being played like it's supposed to. You know, a team acting as a team instead of one guy run... read
