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.
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.

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 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.
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.
Emily Kaldwin has changed quite a bit since the events of 2012's Dishonored. The kidnapped, nearly helpless 10-year-old girl is gone.

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.
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.
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.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
