Bungie adds support for moving Destiny items between characters online and in-app

Chalk this up to "it should have been in at launch," but you can now transfer items between characters in Destiny. The process isn't perfect though since it isn't in-game, but you can do it by way of the companion app or Bung...

Steam's running a free weekend for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer photo
Steam's running a free weekend for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer
by Jordan Devore

To jump straight to the not-so-fun part: it's a 43.5GB download for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and the promo only covers multiplayer. Also, it lasts until Sunday, February 22 at 1:00pm Pacific.

So you can't swoop in, oggle digital Spacey, and clear the campaign like I was planning to do.

I spent too long trying to figure out that instead of searching for a "play for free" button on the game's Steam page, I should have been looking for Advanced Warfare in my library, uninstalled, all along. Yup, there it is. If you're not seeing the title in your list, try updating the Steam client.

Interesting song choice, Space Hulk: Deathwing

Oh, that's right! The studio behind the eccentric cyberpunk shooter E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy is now making a Warhammer 40,000 game called Space Hulk: Deathwing. That probably explains the atypical song selection (Kadebostan...

Review: Evolve photo
Review: Evolve
by Nic Rowen

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 experience that often feels like a frustrating runaround. While I'd love to say another few days of dedicated hunting and skulking was enough to iron out the kinks and worries I had, in the end this is one hunt you might want to sit out.

It's a shame, because when Evolve is firing on all cylinders, it has been some of the best multiplayer fun I've had in years. But those precious few moments are far too rare -- and far too laborious to set up -- to give Evolve an unreserved recommendation.
