E3 2017: Star Wars Battlefront 2 Hands-On

It's E3 week here at Darkstation and have we got a treat for you! Electronic Arts invited us to their EA Play event in Hollywood, California and gave us some time to play Star Wars Battlefront II.  The footage below, presented as a raw, unedited capture of the play session, features a mode called Galactic Assault and set on the lush, Venetian-styled planet of Naboo. In it, the Droid army must escort a multi-troop transport to the Theed Palace while the Clones must use Ion Disruptors to destroy the vehicle before it reaches its target.

Allen's Top 5 Games of the Year

What a year. What a year! In my mind, 2015 was a banner year for playing games on my PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While most of the big, AAA titles to be released were sequels to existing properties, they were good sequels. And for all the bombastic sequels and explosive franchise finales, I found comfort in smaller and more quieter experiences. The best video games are those that let us escape from the the humdrum of everyday life. To take a breather from things in the world that leave us scared and uncertain. And boy, did I go places. In 2015, I learned to hack computers, took virtual girls on dates, fought side by side with Rebels to fight the Empire (and vice versa), master the art of time travel, and even kill a few zombies. Every game I played left me enriched with memories that I loved sharing with people, even if they made me cry all over again (thanks, Life Is Strange). You did good, 2015. You did good.
