The first time I had a successful “run” in The Swords of Ditto, I thought, “well that was pretty fun, but is that it?” Then, the giant space whale appeared......

Next Month's Games With Gold Features Two Co-Op TitlesEnoch Starnes

Super Mega Baseball 2 will be brand new, as it'll also be released for purchase on May 1st.  While it's obviously available for Xbox One, you'll also be able to pick it up on PC and PlayStation 4.  It's a more cartoon-y take on the sports genre, but there's a lot of depth and customization for those willing to dig in.  Plus, it features local and online co-op for up to two players.  We quite liked its predecessor, so here's hoping the sequel expands and improves in all the right places.

There are just a couple items on the docket this time around, the first of which is the "Runaways Character and Level Pack" based on Brian K. Vaughan's Runaways comic series (and also a Hulu series of the same name).  It's out right now, and for the price of $2.99, you'll get the Marine Vivarium level as well as Nico Minoru, Chase Stein, Alex Wilder, Karolina Dean, Molly Hayes, Old Lace, and Gertrude Yorkes added to the character roster.  I don't know much about Runaways, to be honest, but if it's a Brian K. Vaughan property, then I am very much here for it.

While the more recent Star Wars Battlefront II saw a revisioning in 2017 by EA (which our Nick Puleo gave a Co-Op score of 2 out of 5 here) the original included a number of timeless modes that were a blast in Co-Op. Ranging from Galactic Conquest to Hero-only fights as well as wonderful classes from Droidekas to Jetpack Clone troopers, seeing this classic game come back to life means the Force (as well as understanding what their users want) is strong in Microsoft.

While this news is exciting for PS4 owners, players in the Xbox One and PC audience have reason to be excited too with the recent release of the "European Assault" DLC on PC, and coming soon to Xbox. As stated above, the Limited Edition includes future updates as well as the "European Assault" DLC. The official trailer for the DLC can be found below.

As far as the zombie-bashing fun (which is why we’re all really here) it is getting enhanced with The Shadowed Throne, which according to the official page’s break down; “The Shadowed Throne brings our heroes into the heart of Nazi Germany to confront a desperate and murderous regime. Berlin is burning, and Doktor Straub’s monstrous army is hellbent on purging his city of the Allied invaders.”

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.

The official announcement states that the “iconic characters” from the franchise will use their unique abilities and powers to fight crime and defend the city, but they can also be modified by visiting Edna Moe, though no further info on that feature has been released. With couch Co-Op being the only aspect of gameplay confirmed we are left to assume that LEGO: The Incredibles will be like other superhero-based Lego games. In previous titles different powers change the game’s dynamics so it's likely this title will be in a similar vein. However, there has never been a Pixar-based Lego game so what cameos of other Pixar series could show up and whether or not this will be a continuing trend has yet to be seen. The announcement trailer can be found below.

This time around, we're talking LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, which just got a batch of new content in the "Cloak & Dagger Character and Level Pack".  Based on the Marvel TV series, Cloak & Dagger, it offers... well, pretty much what it says.  Players who purchase the pack will have access to a new level focusing on the series' two main characters.  Once that is completed, Cloak, Dagger, Mister Negative, Blackout, Shroud, Nightmare, and Silvermane will be accessible in the main game's roster.

If you haven't picked up the game just yet and are interested in it, you're probably safe waiting until this summer when Sonic Mania Plus drops. The game adds a new "Encore Mode" that will offer plays a chance to play through same levels from the campaign, but remixed in new and interesting ways. Sega has also stated that there will be some visual tweaks applied in "Encore," but didn't state what that means, exactly. Along with the new mode, players can play through everything using either the standard roster of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, or as the new characters, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, which are taken from the 1993 arcade game, SegaSonic the Hedgehog.

One of the aspects that Josef has emphasized throughout the reveal and subsequent showings of the game has been that the focus is on the cooperative gameplay and the story players will make as they play. The decisions you'll face as you play with a buddy (either on the couch or online) and they way you come to those decisions will shape and form your experience. While some of the action looks to be akin to "co-op doors," i.e., both players need to get to this one spot and hold a button to progress, the action itself appears to be a means to develop the relationships between the characters (and, in a way, the players). In other words, it's not always important what you're doing, but the fact that you're doing it with someone. Based on what Fares says during this video, it sounds like the game will take between 6 and 8 hours to complete, so you should be able to play it through multiple times with a few different friends and have some different experiences each time you do.
