Contraption Maker Co-Op Review

An incredible contraption-creating co-op creativity tool.

It's been a long time since the days of Sierra On-Line and the release of The Incredible Machine. The first game hit in 1993 and has since branched off into a few proper sequels, puzzle pack expansions, mobile releases, and countless numbers of unofficial offshoots and imitators. The release of Contraption Maker marks a return of the real deal, complete with some of the original team members in tow!

Saving him from crippling alcoholism, however, is much more complicated.

Save Churchill from Nazis in Sniper Elite 3 DLC

If you've been playing Sniper Elite 3, you've no doubt seen a fair share of Nazi organs being destroyed in slow-mo. And, let's be honest, if you've gotta watch a bullet liquefy someone's vital organs, it might as well be a Nazi. But how often do you get to covertly waste fascists in the personal defense of Master Politician / Boozehound, Sir Winston Churchill?

My Warface is Steaming Mad

Warface may have been on out the PC for quite some time, in fact, it was released in Russian territories almost two years ago. It ran on a new platform for Crytek called GFace, with a closed beta in EU and NA territories on the PC. Shortly afterwards it was followed by an actual closing of the game as they retooled and rebooted the service. After relaunching, it also found itself on Xbox 360 where it launched as one of the few free to play titles on that console.

Destiny Characters Are Playable Across Console Generations

As Destiny Beta for PlayStation owners takes a two day break, we look to what is to come from the next updates from Bungie.

The Winching Hour has Arrived

Co-Op Comrades: Two Player Spintires Stream

Sometimes, you come across a game you're not sure how it came to be, but you're glad it happened. In this case, a successful Kickstarter campaign gave us the gift of Spintires. Spintires is a driving game where the primary goal is to not get your vehicle stuck in the mud while trying to brave Russian wetlands and deliver logs. The terrain deformation is just about the best I've ever seen, and trust me, you're going to fall victim to the mud early and often. Luckily, you can winch your way out, or even get a "gentle" push from other players.

Get in the arena

AirMech Arena Closed Beta Starts July 23rd

If giant transforming robots of destruction are your thing (insert Michael Bay reference here) than AirMech Arena might be right up your alley. This free to play title combines the fast pace of a top down shooter with real time strategy elements, while also throwing some MOBA action into the arena. AirMech Arena, from Ubisoft and Carbon Games, will see a release this summer on Xbox 360, but not before the closed beta which runs July 23 - 29.

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn Giveaway

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn was released a few weeks ago on the PlayStation 3. The two player co-op game slipped under our radar, which is pretty hard when it contains 40 foot tall fighting robots. We haven't officially reviewed a Dynasty Warriors Gundam Game since the second iteration, but the 4th game in the series continues the trend of huge massive anime robot space battles. Destroying mass quantities of robots with a laser sword and a co-op buddy by your side is my idea of a good Thursday evening.

Bonk.

FranknJohn Turns Craniums into Weapons

FrankenJohn from bitsmith Games is one part roguelike, one part experiment in insane arena combat. The game drops you (and maybe a friend) in maps packed with B-movie horrors and sideshow-worthy mutants whose goal is to eat you alive. Your only weapon is whipping your head around on a chain. It's ok to shudder.

New Fortnite Gameplay Video Shows Ways to Defend Skillfully

One co-op title that we've been keeping an eye on is still in the early stages, but is looking more promising each time we take a glance. Epic Game's Fortnite mixes a bunch of elements together, from survival, action, and third-person shooter to introduce a new way to play a "Horde Mode" type of game. Recently, the developers have...
