Death Squared Co-Op Review

Live, Laugh, Love through Death and Robots

Death Squared is a charming puzzle game for one to four players. The game is developed by SMG Studio, based out of Sydney, Australia who have a pedigree focused on tight indie experiences. Their games are charming and colorful, and Death Squared fits right in with their style.  The goal of the game is simple: navigate a robot cube through a test chamber to its matching circle color on the other side. Sounds pretty easy.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Patch #2 is Live

If there is one thing I truly dislike about Ghost Recon Wildlands its the writing. The whole thing feels a bit too sophmoric for me. Perhaps I'm just getting curmudgin in my old age, I'm sure some folks find jokes about wooden cat legs being used for unspeakable acts as hilarious. Good news! If you'd rather not hear about the radio DJ's silly antics, you can turn them off thanks two a new update.

Reveal your secrets to us all please!

The Switch has a Secret of Mana (but so far only in Japan)

There are defining moments in any co-op player's life and one of those for this humble writer is the awesome Super Nintendo game Secret of Mana.  Imagine taking the best Final Fantasy games from the 16 bit era, splicing in a good amount of A Link to the Past and then adding 3 player co-op!  Now Nintendo Switch players can relive my joy, but so far only those from Japan.

Sniper Elite 4's First DLC Is Out Tomorrow

So, you've beaten Sniper Elite 4.  You mowed down wave upon wave of Nazis and presumably killed Space Hitler, thereby saving Earth.  Or whatever.  What's a grizzled sniper to do when there aren't any bad guys left to hunt?  Well, you could spend the rest of your days contemplating the meaning of life and death in the context of your murder-career, or you could wait patiently until more bad guys inevitably crop up.

Strangely Explored Lands...

Halo Wars 2 Co-Op Review

Early on in Halo Wars 2, I kept getting the feeling that I had lived this all before in an almost dream-like way. I played through campaign mission after mission, trying to shake the feeling and find my 'Ah-ha!' moment that would set the game apart, letting me tell my friends and associates of the special moments I wanted to share with...

Steam Code Giveaway - Guardians of Orion and ORION: Prelude

ORION: Prelude was released back in 2012 to quite negative reviews. Over the years the developers continued to garner feedback and update the game, a process we documented in our Indie-Ana Co-Op with TREK Industries. Their next game, Guardians of Orion may be following a similar path. Since release it has transformed from a twin-stick shooter to a hybrid game where gamers can choose to play from any perspective. Both games are built around cooperative play.
