Classic PC shooter is returning and should have the integrated Co-op of yore

Rise of the Triad Remake to Ascend onto PC

Before days of broadband, even before the days of decent modems, I would play PC games such as Rise of the Triad in co-op.  How, you may ask?  I would get my parents to drive my PC and I to a mate’s house and connect computers using serial cables – old school.  Thankfully, Rise is entering the realms of 2012/13 with the announcement of a PC remake.

Pid's Crook Boss Comes to Life in Animated and In-Game Forms

Since showcasing Pid at E3, developer Might & Delight has released a steady stream of trailers and screenshots to build up new hype. The latest trailer focuses on a screen-filling boss called The Crook, who we first glimpsed in a screenshot way back in December. Each Pid trailer does things differently from the last, though - 'The Hold-up Hustle' one actually starts with a hand-drawn cartoon before switching to actual gameplay. Don't worry, you'll still catch a new snippet of the game's wonderful soundtrack as well.
