One of the first titles I checked out for the Indie-Ana Co-Op feature was Overdriven - a 'shmup that supports up to four players locally. Four years after its initial release, the title has been enhanced and ported to the PC as Overdriven Reloaded.
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…

The latest Destiny expansion, "Rise of Iron," has been out for a few weeks now, and we've been doing our best to get through as much of its new content as possible before we offer up our impressions. While it's got some fun new quests and gear for you to acquire, it also acts as a good example of what the game gets wrong.
In the follow-up to their 2013 reboot, Flying Wild Hog has taken the foul-mouthed ninja Lo Wang in a new direction. Shadow Warrior 2 has more in common with titles like Diablo and Borderlands than it does with other FPS games like Call of Duty.
