Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel review — If Dark Souls 3 learned some lessons on its combat from FromSoftware's 2015 hit Bloodborne , the Ashes of Ariandel downloadable content goes one step further, borrowing that spin-off's whole aesthetic. In that sense, Ashes of Ariandel seeks to improve upon many of the key complaints players and reviewers ( like myself) had with Dark Souls 3.

Sid Meier's Civilization 6 review — Few of the friendships in my life have been as enduring as the one I maintain with Civilization games. It began 20 years ago, with the release of Sid Meier's Civilization 2 and has continued though each and every game since, right up to Civilization 6.

World of Final Fantasy review — Game Info Platform PS4, PS Vita Publisher Square Enix Developer Square Enix Release Date 2016-10-25 World of Final Fantasy seems like little more than adorable, fluffy fan service at first. In a fall filled to the brim with Final Fantasy media - A movie! An anime! A new mainline entry!

I got Polygon a birthday gift (Hint: it's me) — Hi, I'm Chelsea, and I'm Polygon's News Editor. OK, this is unrelated to Polygon turning four. If you know me, it's from my work at Mashable, where I started the games section and ran it for four years. Now I'm beyond thrilled to join the team here, whom I totally love, to run the day-to-day news coverage.

Battlefield 1 review — Battlefield 1 proves that sometimes you have to step backward to move something forward. Since 2010, EA and Battlefield developer DICE has seemed determined to take their multiplayer-driven large scale shooter in the direction of its competitors. With Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the series embraced the progression and unlock system of more popular games.

'Dragon Quest Builders' is for 'Minecraft' fans who want noble quests, too — With 100 million copies sold, it's no wonder that Minecraft' s build-anything sandbox has been a target for copycats. Few manage to capture the charm and magic of Mojang's phenomenon, though. Square Enix's Dragon Quest Builders makes the short-list of successful Minecraft descendants, because it takes the concept in a new direction.

'Dishonored 2' is Emily’s game, Corvo just plays there — Emily Kaldwin has changed quite a bit since the events of 2012's Dishonored. The kidnapped, nearly helpless 10-year-old girl is gone. Fifteen years have passed, and in that time the daughter of the Empress has become quite capable. Now 25, Emily is a skillful assassin in her own right, following in the shoes of her father Corvo, the first game's protagonist.

Oculus party rooms let you hang out with your friends' avatars — Virtual reality may soon be less of a lonely experience for Oculus hardware owners, as the company outlined how people can see each other and play together inside of virtual reality. Oculus announced a new party system during its Oculus Connect developers conference in San Jose, California, Thursday.

Oculus Touch controllers arriving Dec. 6 for $199 — VR fans will finally wrap their hands around the Oculus Touch controllers starting on Dec. 6 for $199, Oculus announced Thursday. Oculus Touch, a set of controllers that lets virtual reality users bring their hands inside simulations, was announced in June 2015 - just prior to E3.

Just like 'Pokémon Go,' the game's $35 Plus wearable needs some work — Pokémon Go fans have a new way to play the game: a $34.99 wearable device called Pokémon Go Plus that, much like the app itself, has its ups and downs. While it might not be quite as popular as it was in the weeks following its July launch, Pokémon Go is still breaking records.
