When Raiden V launched in the Spring of 2016 for the Xbox One I was shocked and dismayed to see it was the first game in the series to not offer a co-op mode. Blasphemy I thought. The good thing is, developer MOSS thought the same thing. Now available on PlayStation 4 and PC is Raiden V: Director’s Cut - a definitive version of the game with ...

LEGO Dimensions May Be Nearing Its EndJason Love

Tom Phillips at Eurogamer published an article yesterday that brought all of this to our attention. While the news hasn't been officially confirmed by Warner Bros, the game's publisher, it appears some information was shared with Eurogamer from within TT Games, the developer behind LEGO Dimensions and pretty much all LEGO games. In an email to the entire studio, Dave Dootson (TT Games' Studio Manager) talked about the title in such a way that seems to acknowledge the project is coming to a close.

Now, wouldn't you know it, Ubisoft is planning to capitalize on its positive reception by releasing the game's first DLC, the "Ultra Challenge Pack".  There's some single player content in there, which revolves around a few extra difficult levels for you to sink your teeth into.  More importantly, though, the DLC contains "Cataclysm Kerfuffle", a two player local co-op campaign consisting of five new maps, each with their own harder version to unlock.

Super Mario Odyssey arrives later this month, and many of us are looking forward to the new adventures of the intrepid plumber (retired?!). In anticipation of its release, Nintendo has released a new video that you should see airing on a TV near you that features a mix of CG Mario dancing with some live-action folks, a rousing song performed b...

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.

The title does support two player couch co-op throughout the campaign, though it's worth noting that the second player is assigned to a "support role." They cannot control the main characters (Jason and his vehicle SOPHIA III) or affect weapons/upgrades for them, rather they control an on-screen cursor that can help block incoming bullets and take out some weaker foes. On the plus side, being helpful fills up a special gauge that then allows player two to drop recovery items for player one, so there is some co-op involved at work here.

Lichthund’s arcade-style spear thrower, Lichtspeer, made its debut on PC and the PlayStation 4 a little over a year ago. It was a single-player only affair that had you hurl “speers” of “licht” at Hipster Ice Giants, Viking Penguins, and more. A couple weeks ago, Lichthund brought the title over to the Switch as Lichts...

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...

Tooth and Tail is a real time strategy game set in an eastern European anthropomorphic rodent revolution. The team at Pocketwatch Games previously stole our hearts with Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, and they are back with their take on ‘Popcorn RTS’. Pocketwatch has removed many of the barriers of entry for the genre such as a rel...

The mode was unveiled in a recent PlayStation Blog post and finally provided some context around the separate co-op mode we've heard about for the past few months. This mode is, essentially, offline practice so you can "git gud" for the online PvP battles. You'll be able to team up with A.I. allies and go against A.I. bots in a 10-vs-10 battle, or control a Hero character and go up against a lot of foes. Much like the PvP battles, you'll be able to customize your character with a variety of weapons and abilities that you unlock (either in PvP or Arcade), so if there's a particular "build" you want to try, this is the place to do it. Along with that, though, there will be some unique "Battle Scenarios," which sound like they may be somewhat similar to the co-op challenges from Battlefront's Skirmish mode. All of this can be done with a friend locally on the consoles.

The trailer highlights not only the various family members seen in The Inhumans, but also their home Attilan, which will be one of 18 locations that you can play in the game.  The blending of several different Marvel worlds has been made possible by the game's storyline in which the antagonist has torn them all from time and space:

In all fairness, it's Nick's fault that I got searched and caused everyone to get mad. If had just left the dead body alone, then that one Magister wouldn't have gotten upset and it would have been perfectly fine that I stole a book!

So, instead of maintaining your daily regimen of thumb curls and finger yoga, why don't you prepare for the game by reveling in the aspects that won't make you rage-crush your sixty dollar controller?  The folks at Studio MDHR just released a teaser video showing off some behind-the-scenes footage of soundtrack production.  Hope you like brass.
