We've all been in situations that forced us to cooperate with a bitter rival. Maybe you need a partner for doubles ping pong, and Ernesto, that jerk from the second floor, is the only one left in the break room. Or maybe you have to pass it to your team's ball hog because, let's be honest, he's the only one on your intramural team with any actual skill.
Or maybe you're the main characters of Reagan Gorbachev, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, and you've both been kidnapped by nuclear-armed mercenaries, and now you have no choice but to grab the closest pair of miniguns and save humanity yourselves.
It's entirely possible that you've never experienced those first couple scenarios, but as of February 24th, 2016, you can snag a buddy, hop on into Reagan Gorbachev, and work together to (diplomatically) take down anyone stupid enough to kidnap the two most dangerous men in the known world. The game sports two player local co-op, and we've got an hour's worth of gameplay footage to give you a taste of the action. Check it out!
True to its inspiration, Reagan Gorbachev doesn't pull a single punch. What it may lack in polish, the game more than makes up for with style, humor, and addictiveness. For a cool $9.99 on both Xbox One and PC, you too can keep the world safe from extreme militants and their ilk. If you'd like to read some more in-depth thoughts on the game, be on the lookout for a full review in the coming weeks.
'Til then, I'd advise boning up on your Cold War Leader trivia.
