New Mission Types for Splinter Cell: Blacklist

For those that have been following news on the latest installment in the Splinter Cell series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist,  you may have noticed an emphasis on the cooperative aspects of the game. Focusing on a new gameplay philosophy that centers around the cohesion between two players, the cooperative play is being balanced and fine-tuned for an immersive experience. We talked about the way that the enemies, as well as the players, will rely upon one another to overcome obstacles and eliminate the opposing force in a previous article. For now, let's take a look at two new gameplay modes that will be present in Blacklist.

Fuse Co-Op Review

In a time of dying consoles, misguided reveals, and lowered expectations, Insomniac Games and Electronic Arts have decided to drop a brand new IP on a grumbling gaming public two weeks before E3. To make matters worse, this particular game has been re-branded and re-imaged after a much lauded E3 reveal dating back to 2011. Is Fuse worthy of your precious leisure time and hard-earned money? Find out in our Co-Op Review.

Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 5.27.2013

Yawn. It's Monday morning. It's also the beginning of the end of a super great long weekend in the States. Many of you probably won't read this until tomorrow. That's okay. I ain't mad. This week we have only a handful of co-op releases. I can speak from experience; one of them is pretty damn good. I haven't played the other. It may be good, too. Anyway, enjoy your day off. For the rest of you, I don't know. Happy Monday, I guess. Have fun at work. I'm going back to bed.

Sanctum 2 Gets Another Huge Update

Well wouldn't you know it, Sanctum 2 just keeps getting better and better. A brand new patch was recently released for the tower defense/first person shooter hybrid, making a few significant changes to how resources are handled along with a handful of minor tweaks. Tower upgrades were also fiddled with, and swarm enemies have been made even swarmier. Should be a blast!

Crazy Tough Platformer N Updates, Gets Co-Op Play

It's been several years since we've seen anything major happen in the N universe. The minimalist take on the classic arcade platformer by Metanet Software started as a PC downloadable game then spawned a copy of itself called N+  for XBLA, PSP and Nintendo DS. Now the studio is working on a proper sequel, N++, but has released a nice little update for N to keep us screaming in frustration. Ladies and gentlemen, N v2.0 has arrived. And it has co-op!

A new project

Scourge: Outbreak Coming to XBLA in July

This summer the Xbox LIVE Arcade will be getting another four player third-person shooter called Scourge: Outbreak. Stop me if you've heard this one before: Set in the near future, and small team of specialized mercenaries must take on a secret organization whose mysterious fuel source, "Ambrosia," is threatening the safety of the world. Players will be able to level up their characters and use special perks and abilities. Really? I know several titles have similar story lines, but I finished another upcoming squad-based third-person shooter less than 24 hours ago and this premise seems very familiar.
