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.

Tank Brawl takes everything that made Battle City so fun and brings it into the modern era. And in HD, to boot! The basic idea is this: you drive a tank, you shoot the tank's gun, and you blow up other tanks. That's... well, that's all you need to have a good time, right? Tank Brawl includes five different tank upgrades, destructible environments, seven power-ups, and simple controls anyone can figure out in like two seconds. Good for old retro gamers, but also good for kids.

In late 2014, the original Binding of Isaac gave way to Rebirth, a new version of the game that, among other things, added a two player local co-op mode.  A new DLC, "Afterbirth", was released in the time since, but it had yet to make its way to consoles.  In a recent press release, the developers finally announced that the massive expansion was to be available May 10th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (sorry, Wii U players).

This new hub is set in a bedroom based on the design aesthetics of an "early nineties SEGA fan." There's a CRT on a TV stand with the console hooked up underneath, a bookshelf where you can display all your games, and posters from your favorite SEGA titles. Also, a complete lack of daylight, which perhaps best captures the gaming aesthetics of the day.

Seems like no matter what game we talk about here, the future is always bleak. In the case of Action News Heroes, you're a mercenary that's been hired by a megacorporation, Network X, to take down one of its rivals, Sabre, while Network X's titular news branch films the whole thing. Yeah... kind of dark.

Taylor and I, wearing our naivety right on our sleeves, made our way to the final stage of Nuclear Throne a few hours of game time back.  We thought wistfully of our impending victory.  We thought we were on the very precipice of glory, of finally ascending the Nuclear Throne.  And now, here we sit, 5 sessions after the fact with essentially nothing to show for it.  For reference's sake, here's a list of things we could've accomplished in the twelve hours we've spent thrashing our bodies against the wasteland:
