Next-Gen Feature Alert - No More Splash Screens

Believe it or not, there was a time when videogames didn't make you wait for the menu to load, when they didn't make you sit through four screens of publishers, engine developers, and physics technologies. There was a time when you simply inserted a quarter and pressed start and began playing. Somewhere along the way we lost that but perhaps, there's a slight chance, we'll be getting back to just playing a game.

Trine 2: Complete Story coming to Playstation 4

Sony has been busy padding their new machine's game library with some really great previously released titles. If you missed the magic first time around, or are looking at reliving the memories with friends, all of the three player goodness of Trine 2 is coming to the Playstation 4 in Trine 2: Complete Story. The puzzle/action/platformer game is getting a new paint job, but it's not so much a remake or sequel as a version of the game with higher specs.

Super Mario 3d World to have Local Co-Op Only

Nintendo's Plans Don't Include Online Multiplayer

Nintendo has a weird relationship with the internet. Sure, you can trade your adorable Pokemon monsters to anyone across the globe via the information superhighway, but playing a platformer online? Goodness no! If you're dying to play Super Mario 3d World with your friends, you need to make sure that they're comfortable sitting beside each other. The Wii U's next Mario game features four player co-op, but only of the local variety. Any ambitions to squash goombas with your online friends will have to wait.

Coach Glass is another second screen co-op.

Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One Features Unique Co-Op Mode

Second screen co-op seems to be one of those next-gen features that everyone wants to implement, but nobody is really sure if they are going to stick and take off. While not a traditional form of co-op play, these modes allow a one or more additional players to utilize a tablet or phone to somehow enhance the primary player's experience. The latest game to give this a shot is Madden NFL 25 from EA Sports on the Xbox One.

Mojang is releasing a limited time Halloween texture pack for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft that looks to add a little bit of spookiness to your awesome subterranean cave empire.
