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…

No Man's Sky Adds Co-Op In NEXT Update

A few months back, Sean Murray and Hello Games that they were working on an update for their exploration/crafting/building/adventure game, No Man's Sky, titled "NEXT." This update would be a little bit different than the previous three ("Foundation," "Path Finder," and "Atlas Rises"), as each of those added new content and new activities. "NEXT," on the other hand, will add something we're very excited about: co-op.

GTFO Leaning Into the Horror With New Shadow Enemy

Listen, if I ever found myself in a position where I was part of a crew that was like "let's go into this spooky place and get some loot" and then I was attacked by LITERAL SHADOWS... assuming I survived the encounter, I'd head to the exit and drop 20,000 lbs of explosives behind me. I guess the crew in GTFO is more level-headed? Or greedy?

Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition Stream Recap

It's been a year almost to the day since we last checked out Space Hulk: Deathwing. At that time, the game had received just a few of the updates that would eventually be bundled together in the "Enhanced Edition." That version was released this past May for PC and PlayStation 4 so we decided to hop back in and see how things were looking these days in the grim dark future (aka 2019).

Also, more console delays

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr's Endgame Revealed

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr has been out for a month now on the PC and will be out on consoles soon (more on that in a bit). Yesterday, developer Neocore Game dropped an update that adds a new mode, called "Warzone," to the title and it is intended to give endgame players a way to get better gear and new skills (that can be used in the mode). It kind of looks like a mix between a "Survival" mode and Rifts from Diablo III.

No word about this affecting other regions

Starhawk's Online Capabilities Have Been Terminated For Europe

Over the weekend, it appears Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe sunsetted the servers for the 2012 PlayStation 3 title, Starhawk. A note has been added to all European PS Store listings for the game that basically says "you can no longer play this online." There's been no official statement about whether this is getting applied to all regions or not, so for now, this appears to only be affecting the one region.

Endure the Summer Heat With Friends With July's Games With Gold

July... Of all the months in the calendar year, this one has the distinction of being my least favorite. Mainly due to the fact that the unbearable heat (which is my natural nemesis) makes life feel questionable. But, put that aside, and I guess it's ok. If your idea of a perfect July is being indoors with air conditioning and video games with friends, then good news! July's Games with Gold includes three co-op titles: Assault Android CactusDeath Squared, and Splinter Cell Conviction (360, backwards compatible).
