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…

Atlus Extoling the Virtues of Couch Co-Op in Dragon's Crown Pro Video

Dragon's Crown Pro dropped onto the PlayStation 4 this week, and if you're wondering if it's any good, then I recommend checking out our Co-Op Review of the original when it hit the PS3 oh so many years ago. The only real difference between the two versions is the updated/improved graphics, which look even better now. If you're still wondering whether the game is any good, then let me tell you a tale of two young lovers...

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Revealed, Will Have 3 Zombie Maps at Launch

Yesterday, Activision and Treyarch revealed the next installment in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and things are a bit different this time. It was rumored the title wouldn't have any campaign and would be multiplayer only, which was confirmed by the announcement yesterday and further explained by the developer in an interview with Polygon. The good news is that the game will launch with a Zombies mode and it sounds like it may be a little bit "richer" in its offerings than in year's past.

Recent Patch for Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action Brings Big Changes

Fans of the site may recall the handful of times we've dipped into a couple of Ironward's Solstice Chronicles titles; notably The Red Solstice and Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action. The former is an action/RTS title that allows up to eight players to team up and fight off a horde of monsters, while the latter is more action-oriented top-down shooter with two player couch co-op. It also recently received a big update that fixes a number of issues and makes some pretty big changes.

Nintendo Switch Getting Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

While many Monster Hunter fans were disappointed that Capcom wouldn't be bringing Monster Hunter: World to the Nintendo Switch, last Thursday, the developer posted an announcement video on their YouTube channel for a Switch-exclusive Monster Hunter title. Don't get too excited, though, this isn't exactly an all new game. In Japan, the expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations is known as Monster Hunter XX, and Capcom is bringing that game to the Switch as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

The Nintendo Switch Online Plan Lets You Play Classic Titles Online

Earlier this week, Nintendo finally revealed their plans for their online subscription service. Dubbed "Nintendo Switch Online," this service will be required when it launches in September in order to enjoy online co-op with friends for current titles, like Splatoon 2, and future ones as well. Other than the official name, that's nothing particularly new. What is new is that getting that subscription will also give you access to a library of classic NES titles that will include online capabilities for those that support multiplayer.
