FIFA 17 runs on the Battlefield engine, releases this September

Like Rory McIlroy PGA Tour before it, this year's FIFA will use the Frostbite engine. Well, on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, that is -- the last-gen PS3 and Xbox 360 versions aren't going to, which presumably means they'll be sticking...   read

Destiny's big 2016 expansion will be revealed in one week's time

Skylanders Imaginators
Activision is in a unique position at this point. It basically started the video game toys-to-life market, and now, a major competitor has pulled out entirely.

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 features big names from the community

I should give SSX another shot now that it's playable on Xbox One

SSX (2012) is one I've been meaning to go back to. I liked it well enough at launch, and it was nice to see EA acknowledge the series again, but for whatever reason it just didn't grab me quite like the others. It didn't have that exact rig...   read

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens actually has a reasonable season pass

Our disdain for season passes is well-documented around here. Too many publishers look to turn $60 worth of revenue into $100 by way of a $40 mystery season pass. We rarely know how the base game will end up, but consumers are routinely ask...   read
