The Coming Storm Expansion Drops Today for Dauntless

Phoenix Labs' Behemoth-hunting, co-op action-RPG, Dauntless, has been going pretty strong since it hit "open beta" status back in May. Per the developer, the title has surpassed the "two million player milestone." To celebrate and recognize the dedication of its players, there's a free expansion that's getting rolled out over the course of the next few weeks and will add a new Behemoth to hunt, new quests to pursue, and a new weapon to master.

Finding my new GO TO mouse

SteelSeries Rival 310 and Rival 600 Impressions

For years the Razer Deathadder was the perfect mouse for me in terms of comfort and performance. But over time the Razer software has gotten incredibly bloated, buggy, and downright unreliable. After a botched firmware update bricked my Razer Blackwidow v2 keyboard, I decided it was time to replace my peripherals. Having just switched to SteelSeries Arctis Pro, I already knew their software was top notch. Now I had to find the perfect mouse to match.

How the Gen Con Generation is Killing the Video Game Industry

Our Weekend in Gaming: More Like BORED Games, Amiright

The 51st Gen Con kicked off yesterday (not to be confused with "Gin Con," which happens every other weekend at my house), and board game enthusiasts have descended upon Indianapolis like a group of dire rats swarming a party of adventurers. Our very own Enoch Starnes is out there soaking in all that gaming goodness, in fact, so while the bearded man is away, the differently bearded man will play!

Strange Brigade Developers Detail Post-Launch Plans

As is common in modern games, Strange Brigade has already laid out its plans to keep the content train a-rollin' past its August 28th launch date.  While I'm still getting used to the idea of developers advertising post-launch updates before the game is even out, it's definitely nice to know what I have to look forward to in the months after release.

Watch Some New Overcooked 2 Videos Ahead Of Its August Release

As announced back at E3 2018, Overcooked 2 is well on its way to an August 7th release.  The follow-up to one of our favorite games of 2016 certainly has a lot to live up to, but thankfully, rather than spending our days wandering what Team17 can do to make the game bigger and better, we can watch a couple of new gameplay videos!

The good news is that if you bought them from any of those sources prior to today, you should still have access to them.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Hive Mind

Word has apparently gotten out that No Man's Sky has real, honest-to-gosh co-op, so naturally the Co-Opticrew had to dive in.  Or rather, we will be diving in once the weekend starts.  Hello Games' oft-criticized 2016 release has been undergoing a steady redemption arc over the past couple years, adding in much of the feature set that folks expected to be in it in the first place.  What does this say about the state of game development?  Who knows, but we'll at least find out how much fun it is to explore a procedurally-generated universe with a few friends.
