Some metal bands, not the Castle Crashers devs, play Evolve DLC

A video with a misleading title led me to accidentally watch an Evolve DLC video. "Behemoth plays Behemoth" is less Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp, and more metal bands I've never heard of. But, if you're looking for fantastic insight and well-thought-out critique such as "I loved killing them; they were pissing me off," and "It's pretty much like being on-stage," then do I ever have the video for you.

We got a first look at gameplay from the new Star Wars Battlefront
by Mike Cosimano

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 iconography mixed with sprawling open-ended action in the Conquest mode turned the series into a neighborhood staple, keeping my PlayStation 2 in rotation long after I had obtained modern gaming consoles that were capable of hooking me up with the latest Call of Duty. It's a multiplayer experience unmatched by any shooter I've played since then -- a sentiment many of my fellow youngsters seem to agree with.

Combine these personal expectations with DICE's recent history and the stakes get even higher. The disastrous launch (and equally disastrous subsequent months) of Battlefield 4 dealt a crippling blow to the company's image, tempering what would have otherwise been a home run of an E3 reveal. We haven't seen too much of the game since last June, but that all ended at Star Wars Celebration yesterday with a demo for members of the press. Even though EA and DICE have yet to prove they can ship a game as good as Battlefield 4 (that isn't broken), I liked what I saw of Star Wars Battlefront and I liked what DICE told us. I'm thankfully back to cautious optimism.

Darksiders owner buys rights to Vietnam shooter Men of Valor

Rainbow Six Siege is coming along nicely, if the closed alpha is any indication photo
Rainbow Six Siege is coming along nicely, if the closed alpha is any indication
by Chris Carter

Rainbow Six has had quite an interesting history. After playing it in 1998 on a friend's PC I fell in love, and so did mostly everyone else in the gaming community. For a full decade, Ubisoft pumped out game after game, most of which were serviceable at the very least.

But, in 2008, the future of Rainbow Six was put on hold, leading to the cancellation of Patriots in 2014. Fortunately, the franchise lives on in the form of Rainbow Six Siege, and I'm really enjoying it so far based on my playtime with the alpha.

Ghost in the Shell first-person shooter coming west in 2015 photo
Ghost in the Shell first-person shooter coming west in 2015
by Steven Hansen

You remember this Team Fortress 2 take on Ghost in the Shell coming to Japan and Korea? Well, Nexon America noted on Twitter that Ghost in the Shell Online is indeed coming to the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Australia. And this year, too.

I am no more in love with the concept than I was last year, but I have rewatched the original film since then to find that I still love it (enough to make it my own Twitter avatar). Given that this is free-to-play I might give it a look, but it will probably just make me sad or bored in comparison to just watching Ghost in the Shell again.

Review: Evolve: The Hunt Evolves Update photo
Review: Evolve: The Hunt Evolves Update
by Nic Rowen

More than a month ago Evolve came out to tepid reactions and muted fanfare. Today's release of the game's first major content update, delivering on the Hunting Season Pass and the pre-order Monster Expansion Pack, might have curious players wondering if it's worth a second look. I'm going to go right ahead and dash those hopes now.

While the four new playable hunters and the new monster to terrorize them with might represent some of the best ideas Turtle Rock Studios has had yet, they don't do anything to change the core problems of the game. Given how expensive this DLC feeding frenzy is, and how little you get for it, even hardcore fans will want to do some soul searching before handing over their wallets.

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Ascendance photo
Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Ascendance
by Chris Carter

I've come to really enjoy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer months down the line. It's withstood the test of time, and although I was skeptical of Sledgehammer Games' first Duty outing, it has done a decent job at differentiating itself from Treyarch and Infinity Ward, and in most ways, it has already surpassed the latter.

The latest pack is Ascendance, which brings in a few extras outside of the typical four-map, one-zombie level delivery system. It's a better effort than Havoc thanks to the injection of some grappling hooks, but for $15, not every piece of the puzzle carries its load.
