Age of Wonders III Co-Op Review

The path to victory is paved with dead goblins.

Being the head of an entire nation isn’t all fun and games, you know. You’ve got to make sure you’ve got enough coinage for the gryphon roost, and at least enough mana coming in to rain poison blades down upon your enemies. And that dungeon over there ain't going to raid itself. Age of Wonders III isn’t your regular empire building strategy game, nor is it just that game with a gleaming coat of fantasy paint. It’s a marriage between overworld strategy and surprisingly deep RPG-like battle tactics, blending into something that might actually resemble what warfare would be like in a mystical realm of dragons and magic. Those without much time to dedicate to ruling a fantasy kingdom may want to turn back, but if you’re willing to put in the effort to understand the systems, you’ll definitely appreciate the depth of Age of Wonders III.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition Blu-Ray Version Out this May

Though it's been available on the PSN since December, Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is getting a proper boxed release the 14th of May in both North America and Europe. Already 1.5 million copies have been sold digitally, though there is always room for a boxed copy somewhere. Perhaps you've got a phobia of the internet, or maybe you just don't trust the tenuous nature of digital rights. I'm not here to judge.

First Age of Wonders III Patch Out Now

Triumph Studios cares what you have to say. Especially in regards to Age of Wonders III, which might be why version 1.09 is based on fan feedback, and is also out by the time you read this. Sometimes internal QA just isn't broad enough to take care of everything and they've gotta wait on real player intel when the product is in the hands of the (exceptionally vocal) masses.

An Xbox 360 version launched shortly afterwards and for the most part, both version seem to have a solid following.

Evolve Hands-On Impressions (PAX East 2014)

My other appointment with 2K Games this year at PAX East 2014 was for Evolve, an upcoming squad-based game by Turtle Rock Studios, makers of Left 4 Dead. The game pits four Hunter players against one boss Monster player or AI (as a dev confirmed for us via Twitter). I went hands-on with the game and had a pretty good time. Let’s find out why.

Well, assuming you know to shoot them, of course.

Zombies Monsters Robots Says it All

Just when you thought you had seen the last zombie game ever (just kidding, who would ever think that?), along comes Zombies Monsters Robots. It plays a little like Gears of War, the publisher calls it a sequel to Mercenary Ops, and it has online co-op confirmed for at least eight players. Oh, and it's being developed by Yingpei Games, a studio that was once known as Epic Games China.

When it comes to taking on tanks, two guns are better than one

Sniper Elite III Dev Diary Details Co-Op

The newest developer diary from Rebellion, the studio behind Sniper Elite III, provides some much welcome details into the co-op specifics of this upcoming title. Michael How, Lead Designer at Rebellion, states that co-op is a major part of the game, allowing every single player mission to be played with a partner online. In fact, going at it with a team of two may make things a little easier, as most tanks have vulnerable targets in their rear. While one player essentially acts as bait, the other can flank the tank's position to take it out.

And it will pay you for it, too.

Want to Kill the Mindless Undead? Zombie Hunter Inc Will Deliver.

Zombie Hunter Inc from Maya Gameworks is a rough and gruff shooting game that's all about making big gooey piles of zombie corpses. Er, un-reanimated zombie corpses, that is. Inspired by the likes of Castle Crashers and Seal Hunter, you have seven minutes to stave off the hordes. Use the cash given to you by the sheriff to purchase better guns, all so you can head back out there and kill zombies even faster.
