The world of Metro: Exodus looks more frightening and unlivable every time it's shown off. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC game was detailed in its harsh post-nuclear landscape of snow and recognizable Metro franchise mutants.

For fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, the Blue Blur's 25th anniversary closed on a pretty good note with Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice in 2016, but not without teasing two major return-to-form titles in the coming year. Blue believers who grew up with a SEGA Genesis in their youth—or a Mega Collection of sorts in later years like myself—were promised a brand new 2D game developed by community all-stars who would embrace nostalgia and reimagine the classic Sonic experience. On the other hand, those who enjoyed Sonic's more recent adventures were teased with Sonic Team's very own "Project Sonic 2017," bringing Modern Sonic not only back to Boost-style gameplay last seen in Sonic Generations, but also to darker and more serious storytelling of the pre-Colors games.

Many Star Wars fans are rejoicing because the deluxe version of Star Wars Battlefront II will be available to play tonight. While many fans are excited to get their hands on the newest entry in the series, there has been a lot of negative outcry toward the game over microtransactions. EA is no stranger to controversy when it comes to potential greed, but this situation has people riled up unlike any before it.

In Battlefront II, players will earn credits every time they play a multiplayer match. These credits can be used to unlock vehicles, weapons, and characters to play as.
