Even though Star Wars fans have been gushing about the new video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order since it was released last month, there’s still one game that has only gotten better since its release over two years ago.
Star Wars: Battlefront II may be a bit repetitive, but the growth and expansion of the game over the past two years has greatly improved gameplay and given fans what they really wanted out of a Star Wars game like this. The next couple months are going to improve the game even more with the arrival of Star Wars Battlefront II The Rise of Skywalker DLC. Check out the trailer for the game expansion pack below.

Video games are not required to be fun in a traditional sense. They just aren’t. So, if the entertainment medium is ever going to evolve artistically rather than stagnate and regress with the zombified fad of online competitive multiplayer, money pit loot boxes, time-wasting mobile games, and the first-person shooter obsession that has oversaturated the market more than superhero films could ever do for the movie industry, it’s going to take an awakening from consumers that gaming, even at 61 years old, is still in its infancy having nowhere near tapped into its unprecedented potential as a legitimate art form.
Not to go on a lengthy detour regarding the mixed critical and commercial reception Hideo Kojima’s (instantly recognizable for the iconic Metal Gear Solid franchise and his status as one of gaming’s only true auteurs) latest masterful accomplishment Death Stranding has received, but it’s difficult to accept that many of its naysayers went in to the 50-plus hour experience with the notion presented above: gaming does not and should not be limited to conventional methods of entertainment or whatever is trending, or what’s to be expected from a mainstream AAA blockbuster title.

Have you heard of Jurassic World: Evolution? In the tradition of theme park simulators, the video game lets players create their own dinosaur theme park where they have to bioengineer dinosaurs that think, feel and react intelligently to the park around them, create entertainment and security for guests, and keep the park up and running without any dinosaurs escaping and wreaking havoc. The game is a lot of fun, but it was all set in the modern Jurassic World park. But that’s about to change.
In December, new Jurassic World: Evolution downloadable content will allow players to go back to the original Jurassic Park from 1993, as you return to Isla Nublar and attempt to reclaim and rebuild the park so it can be open to the general public. Get a sneak peek at the Jurassic World: Evolution downloadable content for the original Jurassic Park below. Read More »

Back in August, we learned that Mortal Kombat 11 would be adding a couple interesting new characters to the fighting roster. The Terminator, Joker and Spawn are all being added to the video game over the next few months as downloadable content, but the first one out of the gate is the aged T-800 Terminator as portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator: Dark Fate. However, they clearly couldn’t afford to get the former Governator to do the voice himself. But we think the game developers made up for it by including a special move where the Terminator smashes a man’s genitals.
