Die For Valhalla! Will Bring Viking Violence Straight To Your Couch

If there's one thing I've learned about vikings through years of pop culture osmosis, it's their dearly held belief that any obstacle can be overcome by beating the ever-loving tar out of it.  Economic issues?  Beat the tar out of it.  Labor struggles?  Beat the tar out of it.  Encroaching neighbors?  You get the picture.

Recent Patch for Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action Brings Big Changes

Fans of the site may recall the handful of times we've dipped into a couple of Ironward's Solstice Chronicles titles; notably The Red Solstice and Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action. The former is an action/RTS title that allows up to eight players to team up and fight off a horde of monsters, while the latter is more action-oriented top-down shooter with two player couch co-op. It also recently received a big update that fixes a number of issues and makes some pretty big changes.

So many Mons to Hun

Nintendo Switch Getting Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

While many Monster Hunter fans were disappointed that Capcom wouldn't be bringing Monster Hunter: World to the Nintendo Switch, last Thursday, the developer posted an announcement video on their YouTube channel for a Switch-exclusive Monster Hunter title. Don't get too excited, though, this isn't exactly an all new game. In Japan, the expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations is known as Monster Hunter XX, and Capcom is bringing that game to the Switch as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Co-Op Paint And Race Looks Wonderfully Unique

New Trailblazers Video Shows Off More Track Painting

In a recent video from publisher Rising Star Games, Trailblazers, the multi-platform racing title, shows off some of the things that make it unique; most notably the paint and race features that add a new element to racing as well as the co-op. While the track painting has been featured before, being able to see it paired with the couch co-op makes it incredibly exciting for us here at Co-Optimus.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Destined For The Loot Grind

Good afternoon, all.  Summer, and the suppressing, all-consuming heat it brings with it, is finally upon us.  In order to beat the heat, a few of the Co-Opticrew have found a simple solution - just straight up leave the planet.  With the new Destiny 2 expansion out, there's a whole new set of loot out there to toil away for, and toil we will.  At least it'll be in the cool comfort of our own houses.

Civilization VI Has A New Update Out Today

The latest iteration of Sid Meier's global strategy game received a relatively positive reception back when it launched in the fall of 2016, but it was still plagued by deficiencies in the series' oft-criticized AI opponents.  Over time, though, the Civilization VI developers have worked to alleviate these issues, currently culminating in the game's "Spring 2018 Update", out today.

It’s Indiana Jones Themed (Seriously, This Game Came Out 5 Years Ago)

Payday 2 Content Still Rolling In 2018

In a move that proves developer Overkill lives up to their name, Payday 2 received MORE content as part of the recent “Spring Break” event (why they didn’t title it ‘Spring Break-In’ is beyond me). In the Henry’s Rock Heist, players will be able to break into a giant storage facility and steal some giant gold boxes. It seems right that the heist is named after Mr. Jones (his name is actually Henry, Indiana was the dog) but, unfortunately, this event appears to only be available on PC.

The good news? NES titles with online capabilities. The bad? Paying for cloud saves

The Nintendo Switch Online Plan Lets You Play Classic Titles Online

Earlier this week, Nintendo finally revealed their plans for their online subscription service. Dubbed "Nintendo Switch Online," this service will be required when it launches in September in order to enjoy online co-op with friends for current titles, like Splatoon 2, and future ones as well. Other than the official name, that's nothing particularly new. What is new is that getting that subscription will also give you access to a library of classic NES titles that will include online capabilities for those that support multiplayer.
