Striking while the iron's hot, EA's already released the first developer diary for Star Wars Battlefield, which was announced last week. The video's full of the type of information that should make any series fan giddy: DICE...
I have very fond memories of Star Wars Battlefront. Well into my adolescence, whole summer weekends were lost to split-screen tournaments; when you lost a game, you lost the controller. Familiar Star Wars icono...
Left swipe, left swipe, left swipe. That's what scores of Victorian-era London ladies did when they saw Galahad on Tinder. His profile was so boring -- just a bunch of pictures of the back of his head. Also, his bio said he ...
You probably don't need to bother watching this video; it's nearly four years old at this point. That's when Gears of War 3 launched -- almost four years ago. Time flies and all that, eh? But, Xbox just uploaded the vid...
[An earlier version of this piece had an inaccurate statistical description of one of the downloadable weapons. The offending paragraph has been updated for factual accuracy.] I know, I'm late to the party. Despite being inte...
As reiterated during today's Nintendo Direct, Splatoon is going to have four-versus-four online ranked battles with specific rules that differ from the normal mode. Splat Zones is a ranked mode where players battle over speci...
After the recent announcement that Zelda for Wii U wouldn't be releasing in 2015, people all around the Internet have been losing their collective minds screaming that the Wii U is dead when really, it is anything but.

At a recent event at Nintendo of America's headquarters in Redmond, Washington, I was able to play Splatoon for the first time since E3 2014. It's come a long way since then, and Nintendo is particularly proud of what it...
Nintendo isn't exactly known for its online experiences. With the exception of a few recent titles like Mario Kart 8, the public is typically clamoring for some form of online support. Games like Mario Party 10 would pro...
If you were hesitant to go all in with The Order: 1886 when it first came out last month, then now may be a good time to see what this cinematic adventure is all about. Currently, Amazon is offering the game for $39.99. Considering the oft-debated length of the Sony exclusive, this just might be the right price for the more stubborn of us. [Amazon]
At first glance, the potential for LA Cops to be an interesting title is great. A top-down shooter in the style of a retro cop squad drama, its main appeal lies in the combination of real-time action with teamwork management, one player using two characters to systematically take down a criminal enterprise.

I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London Underground when it struck me. I've been waiting since February to find a game that would look and sound like a movie. So, I changed my plans; I rented a PS4 and a TV, and t...
