Allegorical Co-Op Game Red Rope Gets Another Update

Nothing like a little allegory in your daily dose of gaming. Red Rope: Don't Fall Behind is a unique adventure style game released in 2016 that plays with the idea of unity being both a strength and a restriction. Developer Yonder has quietly released a few updates since last summer, refining the experience by balancing puzzles and fixing small bugs that crop up here and there.

Grave Danger Lands on PC, Console Versions Coming Soon

Hardly a week goes by that I don't wax nostalgic about the puzzle platforming co-op perfection that was The Lost Vikings. The game was phenomenal for its level design, simple but powerful cooperative aspects, and it's musical score that gave the vikings a serious '90s attitude. A few games have taken inspiration from The Lost Vikings over the years, but none so elegantly as Grave Danger.

After Delays and "Troubled Development," Scalebound is Cancelled

Without much in the way of explanation or reasoning behind the decision, Microsoft quietly announced yesterday that the four player co-op action title, Scalebound, was cancelled. While the game was shown off at last year's E3, it sounds like delays in development and other issues lead to the publisher and developer Platinum Games parting ways.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Newest of Years

We made it!  Despite its best efforts, 2016 loosened its vice grip just long enough for us to wriggle free into the bountiful land of 2017.  What treasures await us here?  Eh, it's tough to say yet.  What we do know, though, is that there's gonna be plenty of co-op goodness to be had.  Be it via tabletop, board, or video gaming, we're gonna have tons of chances to gather a few good friends and take down some crummy incarnation of evil.

Latest Humble Bundle is all about shanking people, I guess

Get a Decent Collection of Assassin's Creed Games for $15

While it had a number of issues at launch, and even after, Assassin's Creed Unity was still a pretty fun co-op title. Getting a group of friends together to plot and execute a stealthy assassination (before it all inevitably turns into a Benny Hill skit) is the best way to enjoy that game. The latest Humble Bundle lets you get in on the assassination action with that and several other AC titles all for the low, low price of $15.

It wasn't THAT bad

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Delisted From Digital Service Platforms

Modern games have a somewhat natural life-cycle where they initially emerge, sink back down, float back up for a sale, and repeat thanks to digital marketplaces. The boxed copies of a title will usually shuffle about in retail for a good year or so after initial release, but it's the digital side of things that tends to keep a title going. As of today, the digital life for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is at an end.

Celebrate 20 Years of Diablo Across All of Blizzard's IPs

Hard to believe it was 20 years ago that I first descended into the depths of Hell in search of the Lord of Terror (and some quality loot). Diablo was released on December 31, 1996 and its arrival marked a new beginning for, and in some ways the actual definition of, the action-RPG genre. To celebrate the title's release, Blizzard is injecting a little of the world of Sanctuary into all of its games.

Sabotage DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Includes New Zombie Map

We suspected this would be coming, as the zombie mode in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has space for other "movies" in the game setup. When the Sabotage DLC arrives next month for the PlayStation 4, the "Scooby" gang will be shifting from the '80 in "Zombies in Spaceland" to the '90s with "Rave in the Redwoods."

Festive Pack for Minecraft: Windows 10, Fallout for Console Editions

The Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft got a big update earlier this week that brings the version number up to 1.0; though it's still in beta, apparently. Anyways, along with that update, there's some "Festive Mash-Up" DLC available to purchase so you can deck the halls and all that jazz. The console versions aren't being left out of the DLC fun as they just got the "Fallout Mash-Up" DLC.
