After getting a gritty makeover, the Lancer-revving COGs are back in full force in Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. This debut project of The Coalition (formerly Black Tusk Studios) brings Marcus Fenix and his muscle-bound brothers in arms over to the Xbox One after three excellent entries on the Xbox 360 (and Judgment). The Coalition have completely rebuilt the original 2006 Gears of War title from the ground-up in order to hold fans over until the late 2016 (or beyond) release of Gears of War 4.

The end of Ubisoft's E3 press conferences always leave a megaton for the world to digest, and this year it was all about the return of Ghost Recon. Ghost Recon Wildlands is a very ambitious venture, boasting seamless four-player co-op gameplay in the "largest action/adventure open world in Ubisoft history," and what was shown at the Ubisoft E3 booth was indeed impressive. If they can pull this off it could end up being a defining moment for the new console generation.

E3 2015: Going Dark in Tom Clancy's The Division

It's natural for a video game to throw as many obstacles as it can at a player to test their in-game abilities, but the new area introduced for Tom Clancy's The Division is simply sadistic. The Dark Zone is a brand new PvP section of the game that turns the already intense shooter into an experience where you simply can't trust anyone, and my hands-on time with it at E3 proved just how insane it was.

E3 2015: Star Fox Zero's Aerial Acrobatics

Star Fox Zero is a reboot in more than just the name. This is a return to form for classic Star Fox gameplay, hearkening back to the days of Star Fox 64 when the series truly shined. The console may say "Wii U" on it and the visual quality may reflect current standards, but controlling the game is just like playing the older games back in the Star Fox glory days. Star Fox Zero is a perfect blend of old and new ideas, and while some of the new implementations may be awkward the game is off to a fast start.
