Well, this is it, folks. Prepare your wallets for the impending demand that the latest "toys-to-life" title, Skylanders SuperChargers, will place on them when it arrives later this month on all of the consoles. Which ones, exactly? EVERY ONE!
That's right, Dungeon Defenders II, the sequel to the hit action tower defense title of 2011, has now hit "Alpha" status. Commence with the breaking of the game, for science!
We've all been there. You're testing out a new hero in your MOBA of choice, and it's not going so hot. You "Q" when you meant to "E", you fired your ultimate ability in the exact wrong direction, and the team's taking note. Normally, your comrades would voice their frustrations to themselves or their friends, but the MOBA community... well, sometimes they take a different approach. That's why Blizzard took the chance to revamp Heroes of the Storm's reporting toolset, which will allow players more robust options when determining just why their teammates said all those things, or why they are now hurling their hero face-first into the onslaught.
Slaughtering your way across the anarchic world of Castle Crashers is akin to looking through the eyes of a sociopath who majored in Medieval History while tripping on acid. Maybe you missed the surreal subversion of fantasy tropes the first time around, but its finally time to rectify that. Castle Crashers Remastered is finally out on the Xbox One. Coming in at $14.99 for first time Crashers, this enhanced edition of the beat'em'up is free for owners of the 360 version, so long as you pick it up before the 20th.
If you ever wondered what a procedurally generated Contra game would be like if it were mixed with Left 4 Dead, DieselStormers is your answer.

While many of us wait for what we hope is a worthy spiritual successor to Mega Man in the form of Mighty No. 9, developer Batterystaple Games has taken it upon itself to go ahead and just create its own game. With blackjack! And hoo- ok; maybe none of that, but it does have co-op! The game is called 20XX and is available on Steam Early Access.
We are only 5 days away from Destiny's The Taken King DLC, it only gives players three days to bring their team back together, acquire some new gear, and max out to level 40. This is just in time for the new raid, The King's Fall, that comes out on September 18th at 10:00 AM PT. This was confirmed during the Destiny livestream by Creative Director Luke Smith. It was then tweeted out simultaneously with the date and time.
Canadian developer Digital Extremes is certainly making true on their promise to provide a lot of updates to Warframe, the free-to-play action MMO. New player hubs, new warframes to use, new events, and new game modes have all been released for all platforms since January this year. Now, the console versions of the game receive the one update that the game definitely needed: an update to the game's parkour system.
Well now, what an unusual reveal. In a recent AMA on Reddit, CEO of Frontier Developments David Braben let slip the Xbox One release date for Elite: Dangerous. No press release fanfare, confetti, or even a big drumroll. Just a single line of text that read October 6, 2015.
Some changes are coming to Smite, the god-crazy MOBA that started life as a PC exclusive but eventually found its way to Xbox One. The new patch has just rolled out to One owners to make it more feature-complete compared to its older brother. One of those features is spectator mode, for those days when you just want to watch.
Middle of the week, kind of boring. Maybe you had a long weekend and just didn't want to go back to work. Maybe you just hate everything and live for tiny moments of pleasure you find on co-op news sites (high five!). Here's something cheerful for you to consume: the completely badass opening cinematic from Halo 5: Guardians. Also, Nathan F...
