LEGO Worlds Getting Full Release in 2017Jason Love

As it is a sandbox game, there's no real set end goal for LEGO Worlds. Much as in Minecraft, you're free to explore the world and build/destroy to your heart's content. The title supports two players throughout this endeavor, either locally or online, so you and a buddy can enjoy being creative together.

Back in the glory days of video games when it was all about Sega vs. Nintendo, speed became a deciding factor in which games were cool. Mario's great and all, but does he move as fast as Sonic? No, therefore Sonic is cooler. Now go finish your Hi-C alone in the corner. Mekazoo takes inspiration from speedy games of old (along with modern games ...

The two big packs here are the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" Story Pack, and the "Sonic the Hedgehog" Level Pack. The former includes a new hero figure (Newt Scamander) and a new vehicle (the Niffler) along with six new levels that follow the story of the film/play/book. It also lets you change the LEGO Gateway on the Portal Pad to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) building. These story packs are the new tier of expansions for LEGO Dimensions this year, with the first one based on the new "Ghostbusters" movie from this past summer.

The Terraria update is available on both the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Dungeon Defenders II. In addition to the new Dryad hero, a whole new biome (Forest) and a new NPC (Wayfarer) with new weapons have been added to the game. The update also brings with it a number of bug fixes and other improvements, so check out the dev's full blog post for all the details.

While Mike and I played a few rounds of the zombie mode this past weekend, we still haven't really begun to scratch the surface of everything you can discover/do in this one map. Seriously, go do a Google search for how to acquire the Soul Key fragment. As Nick points out, and I tend to agree in this case, this really feels like it should be its own standalone thing, especially when you take into account that it also looks like future maps will be released for the zombie mode. Enjoy our attempts at just trying to make it wave 15.

Across the game's 19 levels, you'll have to infiltrate a party and employ any means necessary to put an end to the lives of all the partygoers. For instance, maybe you'll cause a car to just drive off on its own and run over everyone standing in front of it, or maybe you'll unleash a bear. Whatever you choose, just be sure you're not seen doing it.

Co-op in Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is strictly a local only affair, but it does offer up two different ways to enjoy said co-op. First, you and another player can go through the entire story campaign (all four episodes are included in the Deluxe Edition instead of being sold separately) with only player controlling Claire and the other controlling Moira. While Claire gets the guns and is the one primarily responsible for doing the actual killing of zombies, Moira can stun enemies and discover secrets.

Titled "Dam It," this campaign is rough around the edges compared to the others and there are some known bugs, but for fans of the title, it should provide a new level to play after all these years. It also helps to bridge a little bit of the narrative arc between the "Dead Air" and "Blood Harvest" campaigns. The new campaign, along with a couple new survival maps, can be acquired from this site.

For the time being, though, we can only ponder LEGO's next step as we play through the "Escape from Starkiller Base" DLC pack.  It features a brand new level, of course, which presumably contains one or more folks "absconding" from some sort of "compound" that can "cause stars to die prematurely".

Have you died in the last 20 seconds? You obviously haven't been playing A Quiver of Crows, a twin stick shooter from Sheado that sounds like a secret follow-up to Game of Thrones. In reality, it's a unique spin on the shmup genre that draws its inspiration from classic games of old. You know, back when they killed you instead of giving you...

Kaos is back (again), wreaking havoc in the Skylands (again)! It's up to you and your gigantic Rubbermaid bin of figures from the last five years of Skylanders games to stop him! Oh, who am I kidding. You're going to shell out a couple hundred bucks on the new hotness that is Skylanders Imaginators. Perhaps you'll also invest in a nice ...
