Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

Nearly a year after its release, the game will finally come to a close

Dark Souls III Will Come to an End with The Ringed City DLC

The final bit of content for Dark Souls III, and likely the last bit of Dark Souls content that creator Hidetaka Miyazaki will be involved with, arrives next month. It sounds like "The Ringed City" DLC will follow-up on some of the bigger questions that are leftover from the last piece of DLC, "Ashes of Ariandel." As with all the Dark Souls related news we post here, more details and the teaser video are after the break if you want to avoid any potential spoilers.

Beast Playable Character and Jubilee Team-Up Added to Marvel Heroes

It's been sometime since we checked in on Gazillion's Marvel Heroes (now, Marvel Heroes 2016), but last month the developers dropped the "Biggest Update Ever" that changed up quite a bit with the title's underlying mechanics and "meta" game. Late last week, they added their 60th(!) playable character to the game with the X-Men's Beast, and fellow X-Man Jubilee as a new team-up character.

Specifically, in our case, its co-op/multiplayer mode. A new pre-order trailer has shown a little bit of footage, which has lead to some speculation about what to expect.

After Delays and "Troubled Development," Scalebound is Cancelled

Without much in the way of explanation or reasoning behind the decision, Microsoft quietly announced yesterday that the four player co-op action title, Scalebound, was cancelled. While the game was shown off at last year's E3, it sounds like delays in development and other issues lead to the publisher and developer Platinum Games parting ways.

Latest Humble Bundle is all about shanking people, I guess

Get a Decent Collection of Assassin's Creed Games for $15

While it had a number of issues at launch, and even after, Assassin's Creed Unity was still a pretty fun co-op title. Getting a group of friends together to plot and execute a stealthy assassination (before it all inevitably turns into a Benny Hill skit) is the best way to enjoy that game. The latest Humble Bundle lets you get in on the assassination action with that and several other AC titles all for the low, low price of $15.
