The actual gameplay of Red Rope revolves around two characters, played by a solo player or two local co-op humans, who are physically tied together. Without this link they wouldn't be able to survive the labyrinth in which they're trapped, but staying this close together also means they'll face new types of challenges. Ever tried making breakfast when you're tied to someone? Actually, don't answer that. We'll keep your personal life out of this.

Grave Danger Lands on PC, Console Versions Coming SoonJohn Bardinelli

Meet Dante, Malice, and Elliot, three adventurous folk with chips on their shoulders and prices on their heads. These outlaws are wanted dead and alive, so you can imagine their lives are a bit complex at the moment. You'll control these three "heroes" in Grave Danger, each of whom has unique abilities used to traverse and manipulate the world. Dante can wall climb and fire a pistol, for example, while Elliot double jumps and blasts wizard shots and Malice tosses a scythe and floats in mid-air. Use their skills to solve puzzles in each stage so everyone can reach the exit safe and sound.

Aside from the announcement that the game is coming later this month for the PlayStation 4 and PC, and that it will support two player local co-op, Arc System hasn't revealed too much else about the game. They've brought the creator of the original arcade version, Yoshihisa Kishimoto, the original character designer, Koji Ogata, and composer Kazunaka Yamane on board, so it certainly will have that "classic" Double Dragon feel to it.

The game follows Otto as he flees from his village after vicious hunters ransack it searching for a mythical creature. As one might imagine, Otto happens to bump into this very same entity (the titular "Troll") and, together, they embark upon a journey to escape from the hunters and save Troll. The entire campaign can be played with a friend locally so as the friendship between Otto and Troll grows during the course of the game, so, too, may your own friendship grow with your co-op partner.

Unlike other, similar titles, Victor lets players tackle different maps with a variety of objectives to complete. These maps rotate on a daily and weekly basis. Eric, Bobby, and Baldy all seemed to enjoy their time with it during their weekly Friday night stream sessions (F.A.L.C.O.).

Pit People is a bit of a departure from The Behemoth's previous titles as it swaps out much of the action that was found in those games for a more tactical approach. You and your co-op buddy will control units on a hex-based grid and issue commands for where they move and attack. You'll be able to recruit new types of units and outfit them with gear in order to make your army more deadly.

While the big draw for this DLC is the inclusion of mod tools for users to make their own levels (PC only, I'm afraid), it will also add some features for every platform, like a new final chapter, a new boss, new items, and a new playable character. Here's the full list from the dev's blog post:

The game features a single-player campaign and a separate co-op mode for two players locally. The co-op mode lets you replay the same levels from the campaign, but you'll face additional challenges, such as rescuing all the civilians in the level. While the first player can earn stars/medals and progress, the second player is only a copy of the first and just drops in as a second support ship, essentially.

Your main objective in Westerado: Double Barreled is to track down the gunman who murdered your family by going around the world talking to its inhabitants and gathering pieces of information about him (or her). You can play along with people, or, in true Western fashion, you can just pull your gun on them and try to force it out of them, though that may have consequences. The game supports two player local co-op throughout the campaign, albeit with the caveat that the second player is tagging along for much of that campaign. Only the first player can actively engage with other characters or buy items while the second player is relegated to the "second shooter" role.

Like any endless runner, there is no set goal in Alien Evaders; you just keep going for as long as possible. The trick here is that your alien is headed down a set lane with colored barriers that keep approaching you. In order pass through the barrier, you must change the color of your alien to match. When playing with another person locally, this adds some interesting twists as you have to coordinate your color shifts. If a blue barrier comes at you, both players must be blue. If an orange barrier approaches, then one player must shift to red while the other shifts to yellow.

Earlier this year, those wacky goats in Goat Simulator decided to take up heisting with the PAYDAY DLC. At the time, this was a PC exclusive DLC pack that added a camel, a flamingo, a dolphin, and four new goats to the roster of playable animals in the game, as well as some vaguely PAYDAY 2 themed things. That DLC is now availab...

Details about the game are pretty sparse right now. A few folks from other gaming sites, like Michael McWhertor of Polygon, did get some hands-on time with an early build of the title and initial impressions are favorable. Some of the biggest improvements seem to be to Knack's move set (which has been greatly expanded), a kind of skill progression, better platforming, and more interaction between co-op players. Couch co-op is returning (as is drop-in/drop-out) for the campaign and there will be some different paths you can take in the levels for an easier or harder experience.

The title supports two players locally and allows each player to choose from one of ten playable characters, such as the Archer, the Cleric, or the Nightblade. Each character has their own progression path with unique skills to unlock.
