So, your dog's dead. That's a real bummer, right? It was an ordinary afternoon when blam-o, lightning strikes and sends the little pupper to another world. Things start looking a little bleak until you realize you can possess and control your four legged friend. Surely that'll be useful in a world-spanning adventure where you fight swor...

LEGO Batman Movie and Knight Rider Coming to LEGO Dimensions in 2017Jason Love

The third Story Pack, which is a new pack this cycle and includes new levels, characters, gadgets/vehicles, and a new gateway design for the Toy Pad, will be based on the "LEGO Batman Movie" that's slated for a February 10, 2017 release. This pack will include Batgirl and Robin minifigures, a Batwing vehicle, and a LEGO Gateway bricks to build the infamous Bat-Computer on the pad. The Story Pack will also include six new story levels that will "provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters" and a new Adventure World to explore based around the movie.

Along with the PC couch co-op, the developer also stated that cross-platform play for the campaign and Horde mode would be supported between the PC and Xbox One versions. So, if you've got the Windows 10 edition and your best gaming buddy prefers the Xbox One, you can still take out those Swarm foes together. Finally, both Xbox One and PC will also feature offline LAN play, up to two players for the campaign and up to five for Horde. While that particular feature is fairly common for the PC, it's surprising to see it for the Xbox One.

Similar to the previous releases, the DLC packs will cost you $1.99 each, or you've got them already if you have the Season Pass. Here's a breakdown of all the characters you'll get in each pack:

Frima Studios’ second endeavor into the realm of platformers is a very different affair from Chariot. While it retains much of the humor and charm as its predecessor, Talent Not Included is far more focused on attracting the leaderboard-chasing crowd than providing a good co-op experience....

The Creation Crystals allow you to pick your own Battle Class, appearance, and catchphrases in order to build your very own Skylander in-game. Each Crystal is associated with a particular element, e.g., fire or water, so you'll be able to make a water-based Bowslinger or a light-based Sorcerer depending on the Crystal you use. In addition to these "Imaginators," there are over 30 Sensei characters that vary by Battle Class and element. If you pair up an Imaginator and a Sensei of the same Battle Class, new weapons and abilities will open up for the Imaginator allowing you to explore new areas in the game.

The two biggest additions to this version of the infamous Gears Horde mode are classes and player-built fortifications, such as turrets and barriers. While the reveal video showed off these features, there wasn't a whole lot of information about what those features actually mean in terms of gameplay. In a recent blog post, The Coalition went into further details and here are a few of the highlights:

The body switching, puzzle platforming set-up isn't anything new, but Trials of Azra does some really fun things with the feature. Each slain monster has its own abilities that help you traverse the dungeon landscape. Rats are small, that's a given. Those green eye guys can jump something serious. The zombies with the huge shield also come in handy, especially when there's spear traps in the way. Switch back and forth between Sam and his chosen corpse, but you can only control one dead body at a time.

From LEGO Marvel Super Heroes to LEGO Jurassic World, if it's a LEGO game and it was released anytime during the past three years for the Xbox One (with the exception of Dimensions), it's part of the sale. You can check out Major Nelson's blog post for a more complete list of all the games that are part of this week's sale, but here are the co-op highlights:

Along with those two, Bayonetta was added the list as was Qix++Of Orcs and Men was also added, though this title is limited to certain regions only (it appears to be just Europe).

Rather than set the title in a dungeon that you're diving into and exploring as far as you can go, Streets of Rogue is set within a procedurally generated city with NPCs wandering around minding their business, drug dealers looking to sell some product, thieves, merchants, gorillas, vampires, and all the other usual folks that inhabit an urban environment. The character that you select to play has the usual stats, like strength,

Watching the trailer for this game, I can't help but be reminded of a number of shmup games like Ikaruga and Raiden. In addition to a variety of stages and bosses, Burst Fighter also features some ship customization, a new game plus mode, hidden bosses, and two player couch co-op.

In addition to the two titles, the Collection will also include two pieces of DLC: a Character Pack and a Spell Pack. The Character Pack adds a few new characters to the game, including the four founders of the Hogwarts Houses, and the Spell Pack adds five new spells that will do things like turn your head into a pumpkin or make your teeth grow out. Along with all that content, the visuals will get some touch-ups to take advantage of that PS4 graphical power.
