Left 4 Dead developer reminds us Back 4 Blood exists

Turtle Rock Studios is a giant, emphatic oh-for-one with major releases after re-venturing out on its own. The asymmetric multiplayer Evolve was neat in theory, but never really found a sizable a permanent audience to keep itself alive...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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...

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. ...

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...

Review: Evolve: The Hunt Evolves Update

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...

Evolve is being rebalanced, Turtle Rock Studios revealed today. In response to player feedback, the developer is making a myriad of alternations to the asymmetrical shooter's cast of characters, the most significant of which involve taking ...

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...

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...

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...
