E-Win Champion Series Gaming Desk Chair Impressions

Treat your booty like a champion

One of the most important components of your gaming PC setup, is your desk chair. Sitting at a desk for extended periods of time is bad for your health, but a good gaming chair, like a Champion Series gaming chair from E-Win, can help limit the effects of marathon sessions at your desk. After about a month of kicking back in one of these chairs for both work and play, I can definitely say that my body notices the difference.

GTFO Leaning Into the Horror With New Shadow Enemy

Listen, if I ever found myself in a position where I was part of a crew that was like "let's go into this spooky place and get some loot" and then I was attacked by LITERAL SHADOWS... assuming I survived the encounter, I'd head to the exit and drop 20,000 lbs of explosives behind me. I guess the crew in GTFO is more level-headed? Or greedy?

Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition Stream Recap

It's been a year almost to the day since we last checked out Space Hulk: Deathwing. At that time, the game had received just a few of the updates that would eventually be bundled together in the "Enhanced Edition." That version was released this past May for PC and PlayStation 4 so we decided to hop back in and see how things were looking these days in the grim dark future (aka 2019).

Our Weekend In Gaming: Spoils Of War

The Steam Summer Sale is finally over, taking the war on our financial wellbeing with it.  Most of the Co-Opticrew managed to stave off complete destitution, but we were far from impervious to Steam's Digital Delights.  Luckily, we have a fantastic way to cope with our newfound dearth of cash:  playing (or simply admiring) all our new games!

Slime-San: Superslime Edition Available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Having already debuted on Steam and Switch last year, Slime-san recently slimed its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as Slime-san: Superslime Edition. A wonderful single-player platformer with distinct five-color visuals and bite-sized stages, Slime-san is also overflowing with content. That includes five retro arcade games, three of which have full 2-player local co-op support.

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr's Endgame Revealed

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr has been out for a month now on the PC and will be out on consoles soon (more on that in a bit). Yesterday, developer Neocore Game dropped an update that adds a new mode, called "Warzone," to the title and it is intended to give endgame players a way to get better gear and new skills (that can be used in the mode). It kind of looks like a mix between a "Survival" mode and Rifts from Diablo III.

Warface Is Coming To Consoles

Warface, the free-to-play first person shooter developed by Crytek's Kiev branch, first arrived on PC in 2013.  While the game's PC community began to swell, work began to create a version for Xbox 360, which was accomplished the following year.  Unfortunately, that initial stab at the console market quickly petered out, but Crytek has decided to make another attempt at console popularity, this time bringing the title to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

There you are on your PC with a great co-op game to play, but no buddy available to sit on your couch and play it with you. What to do? Well, that's exactly the problem the folks over at Parsec wanted to solve. This third-party software allows you to turn any couch co-op game into an online co-op game! Nick and Mike took it for spin to see how it fares as they checked out Fight'N Rage and Wizard of Legend.

No word about this affecting other regions

Starhawk's Online Capabilities Have Been Terminated For Europe

Over the weekend, it appears Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe sunsetted the servers for the 2012 PlayStation 3 title, Starhawk. A note has been added to all European PS Store listings for the game that basically says "you can no longer play this online." There's been no official statement about whether this is getting applied to all regions or not, so for now, this appears to only be affecting the one region.

Endure the Summer Heat With Friends With July's Games With Gold

July... Of all the months in the calendar year, this one has the distinction of being my least favorite. Mainly due to the fact that the unbearable heat (which is my natural nemesis) makes life feel questionable. But, put that aside, and I guess it's ok. If your idea of a perfect July is being indoors with air conditioning and video games with friends, then good news! July's Games with Gold includes three co-op titles: Assault Android CactusDeath Squared, and Splinter Cell Conviction (360, backwards compatible).

Slay Mythical Creatures in Titan Quest With a Buddy on Your Couch

As if seeing a console release wasn't enough, THQ Nordic continues to amaze me with its ongoing support of Titan Quest, an action-RPG that is now over 12 years old! The developer/publisher dropped a new update a couple days ago that fixes a number of bugs and adds two play couch co-op to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. This update will be included in the Nintendo Switch version, too, when it arrives on July 31.

The DLC is currently available for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of the game and if, like me, you're into driving around in vehicles opening doors, then this pack adds to the excitement with the introduction of new cars like "The Meatwagon" and "The Burninator."
