The Games with Gold lineup for March 2017 is...okay?

I'm a little shocked at the game selection for Games with Gold next month. Usually Microsoft kills it in terms of big-name titles or critically acclaimed indie hits. This month, though, we're getting a bunch of nonsense on the Xbox One and ...   read

Turtle Rock's next game will be another cooperative shooter

Turtle Rock Studios has had quite the mixed history with cooperative shooters. As Valve South, it developed Left 4 Dead which was an undeniably huge success. And, once the studio went independent, it created Evolve, which more or less ...   read

Turtle Rock Studios releases the final, lost episode of Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead was an addictive experience upon its release in 2008. The game eschewed a standard single-player campaign for something that merged co-op and competitive play together with a unique AI system that would create disturbances based...   read

Turtle Rock Studios is done with Evolve, but it'll stay online 'for the foreseeable future'

Evolve had a rush of buzz going for it pre-release, but the four-on-one monster-shooting game was never quite able to bring in -- and, crucially, hold onto -- players to the extent that developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K hoped a...   read

Evolve now lets you take characters for a test run before buying them

Evolve has seen something of a resurgence in its player base ever since going free-to-play last month. As such, it has put some pep in developer Turtle Rock's step, as now there are all sorts of new hunters, features, and events that ...   read

Evolve's new hunter isn't Zapdos like I thought

When I heard that Electro Griffin is Evolve Stage 2's newest hunter, I immediately assumed it was Pokémon's Zapdos. A griffin is a mythical bird-thing and "electro" obviously means electricity. Neat! I'd take down a monster with Zap...   read

People are actually playing Evolve again

Evolve, a game that was left for dead by all accounts, has had new life breathed into it. Servers are no longer ghost towns, as players are playing again. Like, a respectable number of people. It's amazing what making your game completely f...   read

Ha, Evolve is going free-to-play on PC

[Update: Game Informer had a chance to chat with Turtle Rock, confirming that these changes might come to consoles if successful on PC, and touching on a few aspects of how combat flow will be altered, as well as how exactly it will transit...   read

GOTY 2015: Best logo

As media, we have no business caring about the marketing of video games. In fact, we actually have a professional obligation to parse through it, finding the good information and discarding the bullshit. That's, like, half the job, really. ...   read

Evolve has a new monster and a new version of the game

It seems like not many hunters are still trying to take down the monsters of Evolve. It came and went in February, and not many peeps have been made since then. Developer Turtle Rock Studios is still trying to breathe life into the game, a...   read

Evolve Ultimate Edition spotted on Amazon

Turtle Rock gives the lamest PR answer about Evolve's pre-order DLC

Evolve's pre-order campaign was, without hyperbole, a shitshow. Jordan weighed in when the game was first announced, and opined that it was way too early to pre-order the game. By the time it released, there was more than $60 worth of conte...   read

Does anyone care that Evolve is getting a new hunter on August 11?

The cringeworthy video above features the Skyrim-esque hunter Jack, who is releasing alongside Evolve's Hunt 2.0 update this coming Tuesday, August 11. The update will include improvements to Hunt mode's matchmaking, revamped leaderboards,...   read

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-t...   read

Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing

It's great to see free maps in a multiplayer-centric game like Evolve, but -- there just had to be a but -- timed platform exclusivity? Considerably less good. When the maps Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry debut on March 31, they'l...   read

Review: Evolve

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 o...   read

Evolve's launch trailer means hunting season's open

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 we know how it e...   read

Review in Progress: Evolve

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 flora, but the...   read
