Sunset Overdrive Co-Op Review

A grinding good time.

Sunset Overdrive from Insomniac Games is their first title since the multiplatform and co-op friendly FUSE hit a few years back. FUSE was the first Insomniac game to not be exclusive to a Sony platform and their next game, Sunset Overdrive is now an exclusive game on a Microsoft platform. How times have changed. The game is an open world action game set in Sunset City. Fizz Co have released their next great energy drink called Overcharged Delirium XXT and is throwing a huge party for the island town to celebrate. But there's just one problem; the energy drink wasn't properly lab tested and has now turned the entire population into crazy mutants called OD.

On Mars, Only Seven Other People Can Hear You Scream

The Red Solstice Gets Massive Update, Is Still Not About the Fall of Communism

Everyone's favorite top-down, Mars-based, tactical shooter, The Red Solstice, is back in business with a massive new update called, "The Horrors of Mars."  These horrors include two brand new bosses for you to watch in sheer terror as they pulverize your only companions on that lonely red planet.  Along with a myriad of gameplay and performance improvements, Ironward Studios has overhauled the tutorial system to make it a bit easier for new players to figure out why exactly that alien made their insides their outsides.

Tabletop Co-Op: Wok Star

There are several common themes that we see over and over again in tabletop board gaming. Fictional genres like fantasy and science-fiction are typically very well represented, as are historical games set during times of war. Every once in a while, though, a game comes along with a totally unique theme. The co-op board game we are looking at today ...

Assassin's Creed Gameplay Trailer Features "Celebrities"

Lately we've been enjoying plenty of video content for Assassin's Creed Unity, mostly in the form of Dev Diaries and Q&A. We've seen very little in the way of extended gameplay footage, almost since the big E3 reveal. The age of ignorance ends today, however, with a trailer featuring three minutes of gameplay. The unfortunate side of this story is that Ubisoft's UK studio was not content at supplying the masses with actual gameplay, and has tainted the whole process with the inclusion of some "hilarious" celebrity impersonations.

It's the Annual Call of Duty Season Pass Reveal Trailer

I remember a time before seasonal releases of Call of Duty games.  It was a time of diversity, a time when every other game was not a FPS.  However, that time has gone, perhaps shot dead during a multiplayer session on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.  We will never know the fate of these golden days, but with this trailer, we will know the contents of CoD 2014's Season Pass.

Adding some life to the Undead Party.

Dead Island 2 Was Made for Co-Op

The most surprising thing about Dead Island 2 isn't the scenic Californian setting, or the up-beat soundtrack, or even the wacky tone in contrast to the first game's solemn feel. Learning DI2 features eight player co-op, though? That's pretty weird. I don't know even one other person that would willingly vault into a zombie-infested sector of the West Coast, let alone seven.
