Where we're going, we don't need roads

Great Scott! It's the New LEGO Dimensions Trailer

LEGO is already a license to print money, what with massively successful toys, videogames, themeparks and films.  However, that is not enough for the House of Plastic and LEGO Dimensions has been created to grab a slice of that beautiful Skylander/Disney Infinity Pie.  How can they compete?  With IPs like Back to the Future.

Civilization: Beyond Earth Is Getting Its First Expansion, Rising Tide

So, we've had a few months to let the frisson of exploring deep space wash over us.  Last year, Civilization: Beyond Earth took the series in a whole new direction by asking players not to rewrite history, but to explore what the future holds for the citizens of a planet whose resources are quickly dwindling.  At least, that's what a textbook would tell you.  Really, it's an excuse to plop down on an unexplored planet and 4X some alien scum.

The Definitive Version of our 2014 Game of the Year

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin Impressions

We're big fans of the Souls games here at Co-Optimus, as evidenced by our glowing reviews of the series so far, so when a copy of Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin came across my desk, I was more than happy to jump in. With a modified version of the campaign, all DLC included, and a graphical upgrade (for the PC and current-gen consoles, anyway), it's much more than a simple HD remaster; it might just be the best way to experience the game.

More like GOODLAND, right? Right?!

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition Heading to PC, Consoles in Late May

Here's a juicy confession: I really enjoyed BADLAND when it was first released on mobile devices, like, a hundred years ago or whatever. Great game, great artwork, just great all around. Not too long ago, BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition was announced for PC and consoles, hauling with it some neat upgrades, including a full-on co-op mode. Excitement mode... engage!

You have to be quite the jerk to make a mask cry.

"The Bozak Horde" Co-op DLC Coming To Dying Light

Sporting events are typically a chance for a family or group of friends to relax, enjoy a beer, and cheer for their respective hometown teams.  In the case of Dying Light, it's also a chance to catch four survivors in the midst of battling their way out of a madman's "challenge mode".  I put that in quotations because calling the situation housing the game's new DLC a "challenge mode" is not dissimilar to calling Vietnam a "puzzle platformer".

Standing up for game makers!

Buy Elite: Dangerous On Their Site, Get Free Steam Key

At Video Game Character Career Day, it's not uncommon to see would-be heroes lined out the door at the Alien-Slaughtering Astronaut booth, or the Knight Who Kills Demons kiosk. Very rarely is there a line for the Virtual Trucker table since, well... Who really wants to haul cargo as a leisure activity? But watch what happens if we add the word "in space" to "a video game about the transportation industry. Also there are pirates there." The eight player co-op fest of Elite: Dangerous may not appeal to the vast majority, but if you're a fan, you're a super fan.
