In the PS Blog post, producer Richard Wood answers all of these hot burning questions. Loot is not instanced per player so whatever drops is fair game. As the game supports local co-op only, though, presumably you and your buddy won't be fighting too much over who gets what. You're also free to drop items at any time for your friend, or even throw them at him or her. This sharing extends beyond just loot, too. When a player revives another player, the player that is doing the reviving shares their life with the player getting revived. So, if player one has 50 HP and revives player two, both will have 25 HP.

Puzzle Platformer Shift Happens Headed to Xbox OneJason Love

Most of the puzzles in Shift Happens revolve around you and your co-op partner shifting your sizes back and forth. It's an idea that appears to be similar to how Shiftlings operated, with the alien janitors in space suits that inflated and deflated being swapped out for sentient blobs. That's totally fine as far as I'm concerned as I feel you can never have too many co-op puzzle games.

Despite wearing its influence right on its bloody pauldrons, Salt and Sanctuary comes off as more of a love letter than blatant rip-off.  Its combat is equal parts unforgiving and rewarding, and its mechanics are just obtuse enough to draw you in.  Better yet, it features two player local co-op for those of us who would prefer to wander the Great Unknown with a buddy at our side.  Needless to say, its success warranted a port to the PC, which was released just a couple days ago.

It's rather impressive that they've gotten all the actors, particularly Harrison Ford, to record new dialogue specifically for this game. Most of the LEGO titles thus far have just gotten voice actors that can do a rough impression of the more well-known versions of the characters, so it's kind of cool to see somebody flexing some kind of development/publishing/licensing muscle to bring these folks in to do some VO work.

The new map, Zombopolis, will be used for the game's "Herbal Assault" mode, which sees the plants invading zombie territory to take control of particular areas and culminates in completing a particular objective. It is my guess that the new mini-boss battle will be the final objective for that map. As for the two new characters, the plants will get a new Citron variant (Toxic Citron) and the zombies will get a new Super Brainz variant (Breakfast Brainz).

You'll be able to choose one of four different character classes - Range, Mage, Warrior, and Amazon - and earn new gear, skills, and other treasures along the way.

Double Impact is one of five new games to the backwards cannon this week, but it is the only one to grace co-op.  Thankfully, this is not just one game, but two!  For you money you get Final Fight, but you also get Magic Sword.  We gave the duo a decent 3.5 out of 5, but for my money Final Fight is one of the all time classics of the genre.  For players that already own the game on 360, it should pop up on their install queue, whilst non-owners can pick it up for $8.

If you're unfamiliar with Hyper Light Drifter, it's an action/adventure RPG that's equal parts Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Dark Souls, with perhaps some of the mystery of Fez tossed in the mix. It requires patience to get a feel for the game's attack mechanics, and to learn enemy attack patterns, but the game rewards you for putting the time in.

The goal for each hole you play in Dangerous Golf is to cause as much destruction as possible before sinking the putt. Enjoy watching all of that in action and get hyped for the title's arrival next month.

In the game two brothers fight off an alien invasion by popping giant bubbles that split and bounce across the screen. It's part SHMUP and part puzzle, and it's a whole lot of fun. The game offers a few co-op modes of play, unfortunately the main puzzle based one (Tour Mode) is locked from play online until both players have completed it in single player. Something a little odd. So instead we dove into Panic Mode, which we'll like akin to a survival base mode.
