Based on what's said in the trailer (see below), it sounds like this trial will provide your co-op buddy of choice the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign with you online; no time limit or "play to certain point." When the title was debuted at this year's E3, Josef talked about how the entire thing has been designed to be a co-op experience that requires a second person to play it, ideally on the couch. If you don't have a local co-op buddy, then the free trial will provide an avenue for you to still enjoy it. One person buys the game, and your buddy can download the co-op trial to play through it with you. That's it.

Gameplay Trailer for GTFO Shows Off the HorrorJason Love

Since announcing the game this past June, the Swedish developer has been pretty quiet on details about the title. With last night's trailer, it appears that we'll be getting more info with greater frequency now. The main focus of the two-minute video is the moment about halfway through when a bunch of monsters bust through a door and attack everyone. Prior to that, things are pretty quiet as four people make their way through some underground area in search of a vault. It's all very moody and while there are familiar beats (i.e., "we're busting into a place to steal some stuff and get out"), the part where "things go bad" and you have to try to get away looks hectic. You're not setting up defensive areas to trade bullets with cops, instead you and your buddies are working to just survive against a horrific swarm.

The announcement arrives as Sony's PlayStation Experience looms ever closer on the horizon (it starts this Saturday, December 9). Dragon's Crown Pro will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro with a number of visual enhancements/improvements, including the ability to display at 4k resolution assuming you have a PS4 Pro and a 4k compatible TV. There's also a newly recorded soundtrack featuring a full orchestra, and the same four player co-op options (i.e., local, online, and combo) will still be supported. Best of all, if you owned the original Dragon's Crown and sent those saves to the great PS Cloud in the sky, you can pull that save back down and use with the Pro version of the game.

While a specific date hasn't been nailed down, Overkill just released a dev diary to give us a brief update on the game's progress.  In fact, it even includes a clip of the game running on the Switch's portable mode.  Soon enough, you can make everyone around you on the train feel awkward as you plow through police, take hostages, and haul duffel bags of money around.

Play games and help kids? That's basically the definition of win-win. My trusty old Webster dictionary even says so. Well, okay, maaaybe I wrote it in the margin, but seriously, fundraising doesn't get much better than this.

The original Destiny launched in 2014 across Xbox One, 360, PS4 and PS3. It was reviewed by our own Nick, Jason and Mike who gave it a 4 out of 5 for both the overall game and co-op. They praised its use as a foundation to be improved upon with Nick saying “You need to examine the potential a game has to see if it's worth your almighty dollar. Destiny is ripe with potential and Bungie has rarely not delivered. The first set of content and changes are already live. But based on what's there now, it might be tough to hold gamers' attentions long enough until it reaches that state.”

First up, Halo 3. Originally launched in 2007, it was the first installment from the Halo series to make it to the fairly new Xbox 360 (which originally came out in ‘05). The game featured the aspects that players had grown to love but with the new hardware and Xbox LIVE becoming easier to jump into on the new console, this game was a must have from the start. It marked the end of Master Chief’s (initial) trilogy, but also the start of Halo games being known for pushing graphics, gameplay and online firefights to the limit.

I’m going to preface this review of Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 right now by laying out my perspective because I know just how serious fans can be about soccer. I don’t follow any specific team, I can’t name more than a dozen European players, and I don’t really care for the custom team modes in soccer video games. I’m a...
