Ah, hello there, human! Welcome to the world! If you see anything you'd like to do, please feel free to give it a try. Oh, you want to push buttons? Go right ahead. Opening doors? Yeah, you can do that too, I guess. Throwing rocks through windows, bending bars with levers, crashing through walls with catapults? Um, maybe we should talk about so...

Hyper Light Drifter Comes to Consoles TomorrowJason Love

The local co-op mode, which you have to enable from the "Options" menu, allows you and a buddy to play through the entire campaign together. The second player has the same move set as the first player, but it's the first player that determines what moves are available as he/she is the only one who can change the equipment loadout and purchase upgrades. All progress is saved to the first player's profile, too.

Similar to the Ghostbusters "story pack," the Fantastic Beasts pack will include six new playable levels, a minifigure (Newt Scamander), what could be a vehicle or gadget (a Niffler animal), and a new configuration for your LEGO Toy Pad (based on the Magical Congress of the United States of America, or MACUSA, building). The pack is listed for 39.99 pounds sterling, which will translate to $49.99 over in the States, and appears to be slated for a November release.

We didn't talk about it too much during the big reveal at this year's E3, due in part to some conflicting information, but Microsoft has plans to release two consoles within the next year. The first of these, the Xbox One S, is essentially a slightly upgraded version of the current Xbox One. It will support 4k for video and Blu-Ray, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for games (and TVs) that support it. It's also smaller than the current Xbox One and can utilize up to a 2 TB hard drive. The market for this console appears to be anyone who doesn't currently own an Xbox One.

For those not in the know, the Earth Defense Force franchise centers around giant, otherworldly insects invading our home planet and the defensive measures required therein.  Put more plainly, it's about you destroying every damn bug unfortunate enough to enter your line of sight.  To do so, you'll be utilizing everything from small arms to gigantic mechs.

The mode itself will feature two different scenarios from the multiplayer side of things, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron, and will let you adjust the difficulty of the bots to suit your needs. The local co-op option is for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game only, but it appears that Skirmish will support two player online co-op based on a Twitter response from one of the game's devs.

There's a great visual style to the game; almost a mix between H.R. Geiger and a variety of tribal cultures. The game is still a work in progress so details are a bit sparse at the moment, but the developers have confirmed that the title will support a full co-op campaign for at least two players. That number may increase depending on how development goes and some additional co-op features, e.g., drop-in/drop-out, combo co-op, may get added as well should that happen.

Human: Fall Flat from No Brake Games is a third person physics puzzle and sandbox game that mixes realism with the awkwardness of realistic motion. It's a fair comparison to say it shares roots with Octodad, as both involve controlling an awkward character as they attempt to do ordinary things. In Human, you control a person who can jump, raise each arm independently, and grab things with either hand. By mixing up those motions you'll solve puzzles, break walls, climb mountains, fling wrecking balls, and toss TVs off cliffs. It's two parts non-linear puzzle solving and one part creativity, just the right mix for a quirky, self-aware physics game.

If you're not familiar with the game, it's an adaptation of the 1979 film where a New York street gang is framed for the murder of a prominent rival gang leader and they must make it back to their home turf before rival gangs end them. While there are few elements, like character progression, robbing citizens, and taking on mission, that have become the hallmarks of Rockstar games, the core combat is very similar to any modern beat 'em up. In its transition to the PlayStation 4, the title has received a "full 1080p up-rendering" and some new features have been added, like Trophies, Shareplay, and Remote play.

Gorod Krovi is the next chapter in the zombie tale and it will be set in an alternate U.S.S.R. where there are undead in mech suits and dragons. Yep, there really isn't anywhere else to go with all of this other than dragons at this point.

Super Mutant Alien Assault, which we refuse to abbreviate as SMAA because it looks ridiculous, takes inspiration from some of the most popular and challenging arcade games, such as Super Crate Box. It features randomized single screen levels and a painfully difficult mix of shooting and avoidance, forcing you to go on the defensive almost as often as you attack. It's hyper enough in solo mode, but when you add in two player local co-op, things get even better. Just watch out for friendly fire.

Signing up for the closed beta requires a little more than clicking a button. First you have to look through the terms and conditions, then register on the Behemoth forums. Once that's complete, click the Beta Registration button, fill everything out, and you're done. The testing is set to begin sometime in August. No word on when or if PC users will get the same options.

Full Mojo Rampage is an action RPG infused with tons of roguelike elements. Each player controls a character that pledges loyalty to a powerful voodoo spirit named Loa, which I'm sure carries no downsides whatsoever. Complete quests to gain power and knowledge to better serve Loa, all while battling all manner of spirits and evil being, including zombies, which actually makes sense in a voodoo-inspired video game.
