The fifth of the "Headhunter Packs," this last DLC comes in at $2.99 and features the titular British-accented beast hunter, Sir Hammerlock, as he and the Vault Hunters take a trip on down to Wam Bam Island for some R&R. Not all is peaceful on the island, as Crawmerax Jr, the son the enormous, angry crab from the first game, nabs the noble cyborg after seeking vengeance on the original Vault Hunters.

Nuclear Throne Gains 2-player Local Co-op ModeChristopher Metz

Set in a post apocalyptic future, players assume the role of a single mutant creature who's trying to both survive the radioactive world and become the most powerful being around. Using the environment's available nuclear waste to mutate it's appearance and abilities, the outcome of its full potential becomes entirely up to the players imagination. This rouge-like action game becomes very intense right from the get-go, so players find themselves in a fast past setting that constantly keeps them on their toes and evolving their strategies to survive. Vlambeer showed off an all new trailer of the game during this past PAX East, shown below:

Out this week on PlayStation Vita, Dead Nation brings top-down zombie shooting co-op straight to your pocket. Originally released on PS3, Dead Nation became a fan favorite in the zombie survival and co-op genres. This is one game that's great alone, but even better with a friend.  Developed for Vita by Climax Studios,...

ZAMB! combines brawling action with shooter-style levels and a touch of tower defense mechanics. You control two unique characters, even in single player mode, each of whom have unique fighting styles. Cye is the up-close fighter type who prefers to smack enemies in the face. Chrome, on the other hand, is an engineer who uses a bit more strategy on his path to destruction. By combining their skills you can survive and eventually defeat the waves of biomutants.

Extinction Episode 2: Mayday tasks the player team with boarding and investigating a ghost ship in the South Pacific. Players will meet new foes, including Seeders, which climb on walls and have a deadly gas projectile attack, as well as the Kraken, which is exactly what you think it is - a huge monster in the sea, larger than a building.

The new video for Child of Light is simply a walkthrough of some of the levels in the game and they look fantastic.  We also get an impression on how main character Aurora will evolve in the game from a child into a young woman.

Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel (henceforth BL:PS) takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and one of the really neat things about it is that the four new playable characters (Athena, Wilhelm, Claptrap, and Nisha) have all been characters in the previous games. The story will follow Handsome Jack’s transformation from hero to villain as well as provide an explanation to why Elpis (Pandora’s moon) looked like a normal moon in BL1, but is a destroyed mess in BL2. You see, BL:PS takes place on Elpis, complete with low-gravity, oxygen kits, and lasers.

Guacamelee! was originally released in April 2013 for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. The PC port came later in the year, and an enhanced Guacamelee!: Super Turbo Championship Edition version is in the works for a Spring 2014 release on next-gen consoles and Xbox 360. One part action game, one part platformer, and one part brawler, Guacamelee! stars Juan Aguacate, a down on his luck farmer who travels through the worlds of the living and the dead to rescue the love of his life. It's incredibly stylish and, at times, incredibly difficult, but the two player local co-op makes up for that. A bit.

Disney hinted that Marvel characters will be coming in the version sometime in the future, but no release date has been announced at this time. The very brief trailer, "Get Ready to Assemble" showcases a cutscene where Captain America's shield ricochets around the Toy Box mode, startling the other Disney characters. I have no doubt in my mind that this means, besides the Captain, members from The Avengers team will be coming to the version.

When looking at Super Mutant Alien Assault, the word hectic comes to mind. Not completely out of control hectic, maybe just "energetic" or "rather energetic". Fight your way through a series of brief but intense stages that throw mutants at you without mercy. Weapons are limited and dispensed at random, so you'll have to rely on that little thing we like to call "skill". Or blind luck, that works too.

In a slight turn of things, rather than working to hunt vaults or take down Handsome Jack, you're actually working for the hideous fascist to help establish his moon base. It's Borderlands... in spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!

LEGO The Hobbit will have the local 2 player co-op that we have come to know and love here at Co-Optimus Towers.  The game offers the first two films in LEGO form and you can control all the dwarves from Balin all the way to Thorin:

Announced only a few days ago, developer Coffee Stain Studios stated that a co-op multiplayer mode would be coming to the game in its first big patch! The mode will include all of the same silly gameplay mechanics as before, such as obtaining points and multipliers by causing an absolute ruckus, within a split-screen co-op mode. Unfortunately, this means that no online co-op will be offered for the game for the time being.
