[Watch] Star Wars: Battlefront 2 gets new Starfighter Assault trailer

As EA and DICE get ready to officially unveil Star Wars: Battlefront 2's Starfighter gameplay at Gamescom 2017, they have dropped a cinematic in-engine gameplay trailer of what we can expect (embedded above). It's clear that DICE is really pushing the cinematic approach after the whirlwind of criticism that their first outing received for not having anything substantial in that regard. As a Star Wars fan, it's easy to get excited at a trailer like this, but it's important to remember that the on

What are you playing this weekend?

The weekend is here, and in part we can thank Ian McKellen's great-great-grandfather for that. Even after they've been released, work continues: just take No Man's Sky, which I'm going to be playing more of this weekend. So what are you all playing this weekend? Anything you didn't like and hope a patch has made better or liked a lot and hope a patch didn't make worse? And don't forget thank Gandalf/Magneto's dad's dad's dad's dad for making sure you have a little extra time to play—assuming you

The ‘Souls-like’ label needs to die

If I had to make a direct comparison, it would be to The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, Ska’s previous 2D action RPG. Dark Souls is a poor and arbitrary acid test, and the Souls-like label creates unrealistic standards that threaten to bury great games. But as Souls games, they’re pretty terrible, probably because they're not Souls games. Even if you are intimately familiar with Dark Souls, Souls-like still doesn’t tell you anything because it lacks a universal definition. But then, even if you are
