These two guys finally learn the meaning of co-op!

Reagan Gorbachev, the Arcade Shooter You Never Knew You Wanted

Were you alive during the '80s? That's the 1980s, for anyone who's about to get all pedantic. You probably remember two world leaders who had something of a rivalry going on: Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. It took a few decades, but someone finally found a way for those two rapscallions to get along. Lucky for us it's a top-down arcade game and not some boring political whatever!

Samurai Warriors 4 Endures a J-Rock Themed Launch Trailer; Out Now

It's been ten long years since we first started hacking Japanese rebels to bits in the first Samurai Warriors. Celebrating this decade of warfare in feudal Nippon is Samurai Warriors 4, out now for the PS3, PS4, and PSVita. The Warriors games are some of the most polarizing in the industry, with die-hard fans extolling their virtues and critics decrying their faults. We've already gotten one dose this year with Hyrule Warriors, but if you're itching for superhuman feats of murder and happen to limit yourself to Sony platforms, Samurai Warriors 4 is here for you.

Techland Outlines Dying Light Pre-order Promotion

As if trying out outlast a zombie apocalypse wasn't a good indication that Dying Light was designed to be played cooperatively, Techland will be providing a small incentive to bring four along for the ride. Those of us that have been looking forward to the game's release should be thrilled to know that there's a pre-purchase promotion going on now to compliment co-op perfectly.
