A full trailer featuring each and every playable character in Hyrule Warriors has release recently. Having played all the Legend of Zelda games in the series, I'm very happy with the characters choices they've made and am excited to see what sort of co-op combinations we can come up with. From the trailer itself, the game seems to sp...

Obludia Out on Steam, Inspired by Classics like Smash T.V.Nick Puleo

From the little I played of the game it's a fun diversion, but it lacks the strategic pacing and the exceptional co-op play of Smash T.V. Instead what Obludia delivers is a rogue-like experience more akin to Binding of Isaac than Midway's arcade classic.

The LEGO series of games have been firm favorite here at Co-Optimus towers for many a year and this is not likely to stop with LEGO Batman 3.  It will have the 2 player local co-op that has become a staple for the series (although we still wish for online co-op).

The ibb & obb deal includes all varieties of the PC version of the game. There's the single pack for $5.99, which is as simple as it gets with one copy of the game for you and a local co-op partner. The online co-op friendly ibb & obb - Best Friends Forever Double Pack gives you two copies of the game for just a dollar more. Both deluxe edition packages are also on sale, passing out copies of the soundtrack alongside games for you and your friends.

At this point in the game's production, some may argue that a gameplay trailer would serve Sacred 3 better, especially since we've seen one before, but maybe that style will be reserved for a future launch trailer. Regardless, the trailer showcases the fun players can have while working together. Sure, it's great to take down enemies together, but it's also great to see who came out on top during the battle.

FranknJohn himself is a failed experiment abandoned by Dr. Harmin. He wakes from his grave with no memory, only an insatiable desire not to be dead anymore. His head is attached to his body by a chain, which allows him to swing it around in all directions, damaging enemies and breaking things like tombstones and crates. You can find and equip Skullcaps that give you special abilities, such as a turtle shell that doubles as a shield, but apart from that you're on your own in these arenas. No guns or grenades, just brainsmacks.

The space station Icarus has been overrun with a very special strain of bacteria that turns everyone into homicidal monsters. Security operative Blake manages to escape but crashes on the surface of Mars near the mining colony of Deadstone. As you probably guessed, things aren't so calm on the planet, either. Blake finds himself going out on patrol to make sure the colony stays safe. Instead of defending your base because you don't want creeps to smudge the windows, every time an infected monster gets by, a colonist dies. Oops.

In an interview with Gamereactor, Tony Lawrence of 2k Australia said "If fans say, 'Hey, we'd really like this on a next-gen console,' well, we'll think about that. But right now, we're concentrating on the consoles we know." This kind of statement coming at the beginning of a new hardware generation isn't anything new, but seeing titles old and new get remade for the current gen has now become commonplace.

Once an enemy has reached your cores they will try to escape with one in hand. If your towers were unable to stop them on the way in, perhaps they can do something about it on the way out. Once an enemy holding a core is defeated, the core will return to base. It's a unique feature not too common in the tower defense genre, and calls for more thinking on the player's part.
