Our Weekend In Gaming: Mega Men

I'm not necessarily saying this weekend will be filled with rage-induced controller destruction, but given that Nick picked up a certain collection of games, it seems unavoidable.  I'm also not necessarily saying the two weddings Jason's attending will devolve into orgies of carnal pleasures after seeing thirty seconds of his "Cha Cha Slide" routine, but I'm not not saying that, either.

New Frozenbyte Co-Op Game Nine Parchments Coming in 2017

Finnish developer Frozenbyte is moving away from their puzzle-platformer wheelhouse (Trine) with their next co-op title, though there appears to be a little bit of a tie-in. The Nine Parchments will follow four wizards of the Astral Academy who are attempting to circumvent the long process required to master titular scrolls in favor of a more direct approach.

Feedback taken to heart

[Update] Changes on the Way for Necropolis Prior to Console Release

Harebrained Schemes' cooperative rogue-like Necropolis made its debut on the PC last month, and the initial reception was rather mixed. The developer listened to all of this feedback and came up with a plan to address it over the course of the next few months. The latest patch hit a couple weeks back, but there's more in store before the console release.
