SNK has not yet released the full list of games that will be included in the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, nor have they announced what titles will be in the Neo Geo Mini. However, given the large number of co-op titles that were developed and published by SNK back in the late 80s/early 90s, I'm sure we can look forward to a good number of fun couch co-op games to enjoy. While it may appear the Neo Geo Mini is a single-player only "arcade cabinet," there are ports for an HDMI cable and two controllers (sold separately).

You Can Now Play As Your Favorite FFXV Characters In MinecraftEnoch Starnes

Nevertheless, some interesting news on the game pops up every now and then.  In this case, it's the fact that 43 of Final Fantasy XV's cast of characters have been transported into Minecraft's procedural realm.  Assuming you're playing the Windows 10 edition, you can pick up the "Final Fantasy XV Skin Pack" for $3, which seems like a decent deal considering the amount of options it grants.

Finally, "Zombies" purists are allowed to pick up the extra maps without worrying about shelling out for non-cooperative content.  Each of the three DLC maps can be acquired for $7.99 a piece.

As a quick refresher on what this game is, it's an action-RPG title in the Diablo 3 vein where players will be able to choose a character class, level up and spend skill points in a skill tree, and kill foes to get loot. In its own unique spin, though, Inquisitor - Martyr goes beyond just that. Within the game, players are part of a group (the Inquisitors) that are tasked with rooting out Chaotic corruption and eliminating it with extreme prejudice. So while there are straightforward missions to complete (kill X enemies, or destroy these key things), there are also larger Investigations in which players can partake that will chain together several missions in mini-story arcs. There will also be seasons where all players contribute in some way to what happens within the sector.

Happy Wars was originally released for Xbox 360 in October of 2012, with a PC adaption following in 2014, the Xbox One edition in 2015, and a Windows 10 version in 2016. All of those versions, with the exception of the Xbox One, will be coming to an end in December. Per the developers, “No game modes will be available after the game has shut down…” Happy Wars will continue on Xbox One. While the original 360 version of the game shutting down could be disheartening for hardcore fans, the title has had a 6 year run, which is definitely a long time in video game years. Add to that the ability to simply continue playing the game on Xbox One and this shutdown will not likely be the end of the game.

For the other games, Super Hot, Trials of the Blood Dragon, and Quantum Conundrum are all free. Further, both Brave and Quantum Conundrum are available for Xbox 360 and with this they are also becoming Backwards Compatible on Xbox One. So no matter if you’re playing in the current generation or generations past, you can have some Pixar-fueled Co-Op fun.

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.

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.
