The Legends are spreading...

Fable Legends Coming to Windows 10; Cross Play With Xbox One

PC Fable fans without access to an Xbox One can finally stash those tear stained handkerchiefs and commence training for next-gen chicken chasing. Fable Legends has been formally announced for PCs running Windows 10, with "the game due to launch on both platforms at the same time." Even stranger than a simultaneous PC release for a traditionally Xbox only franchise is the implementation of cross-platform play. You and your friends can mix up a big heap of PC's and Xbox One versions and still play together whenever you'd like. To me, that sounds like the future.

I wonder how many times the term "sick air" was tossed around at Techland?

Watch Dying Light Devs Show Off Its Co-op Gameplay

We've previewed it, we've waited patiently for it, and now Dying Light is mere days away from being unleashed upon the masses.  What exactly is it, though, and why should you, Joe Co-operation, care?  Well, the folks over at Techland are here to provide a bit more clarity in the form of a four minute gameplay video.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection indeed.

2K and Gearbox have announced Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is on its way to next-gen consoles in late March! The pack shoves Borderlands 2 and its follow-up Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel together in a tidy high definition package retailing for $59.99. It's the first time both games will be available on PS4 and Xbox One, and it's also the first time four player local split screen co-op is available!

Kingsroad is Out Now for iPad

KingsRoad was one of the first free to play games that truly impressed me. The Diablo like Action RPG managed to deliver a compelling, replayable game that didn't lock a ton of content behind paywalls. Almost two years later the game is still going strong with over 100 available maps, three character classes, and thousands of legendary items. Now the game is out on iOS.

I'm told it has something to do with living life cautiously.

The Crew's First DLC Pack Is Out Now

Ubisoft, developers of The Crew, had a rough 2014.  I'm not one to make musical comparisons, but I'd be willing to bet that more than a couple employees over there considered "This Year" by The Mountain Goats to be their anthem by December 31st.  Nevertheless, they survived the year and even managed to eke out a GOTY contender, Far Cry 4, in the process.  If history is at all predictive, 2015 should be the year of their redemption, and a portion of that redemption should come in the form of DLC releases for their 2014 titles.

My heart stopped once I hit play, but I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Tread Lightly Around This Video Explaining Deathtrap's Map Editor

There comes a time in any young person's life in which they realize there's much more to the world than the confines of their home.  There are countrysides to explore, street vendors to haggle with, and, in the case of Deathtrap, hordes of minions to mar and disfigure in brutal contraptions.

Could the co-op classic be returning to the modern era?

Phil Spencer Wears a Battletoads Shirt, Speculation Ensues

How many people do you know who own a freaking Battletoads t-shirt? We probably couldn't count them on one hand. That being said, Microsoft's own Phil Spencer was seen rocking a sweet Battletoads t-shirt today at the Windows 10 event. If we know Phil like we think we do, we have a gut feeling we'll see something Battletoads related in t...

Bestow the Virtues of Saints Row 4: Gat out of Hell in This Launch Trailer

Volition have never been a developer to shy away from using their odd sense of humor and that is evident once more in the launch trailer for Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.  If you want people to buy a game, what better way than the hard sell?  However, this infomercial may be taking it a little far.

New Book Now Available!

I Was Geeky When Geeky Wasn't Cool

In 2008, I was lucky enough to join the Co-Optimus team. I've always enjoyed writing, and the opportunity to write about video games, another passion of mine, was something I couldn't pass up. Almost seven years, hundreds of news articles, and dozens of game reviews later, I have taken the next step by writing my first book!
