A curious new first person shooter recently hit GOG.com. Signal Ops from Space Bullet Dynamics Corp. puts you in charge of a squad of operatives carrying out a series of espionage missions. You know, things like stealing secrets, planting evidence, assassinating targets, and just generally being a destructive little spy. The interesting thing is that Signal Ops makes use of multiple points of view, allowing you to monitor and work with your squad like some sort of totally non-creepy boss. Did you really need to go to the bathroom that urgently, Jenkins?
Those of us still bounding around the Dungeon Maestro's theme park have a lot to love about Dungeonland, as our co-op review so masterfully illustrates. Recently, Paradox Interactive placed the previously exclusive Grimoire Pack DLC on sale for the buying populace to consume along with an update that fixes a few rough spots in the game. Oh, and then there are the three video guides narrated by Rogue, Mage and Warrior. Just for fun.
Move over Dust, there’s a new anthropomorphic rabbit in town. And his name is…Dusty (no relation). In case you couldn’t get enough of killer attack rabbits and other furry companions, they will be battling across your television in Dusty Raging Fist. The newest game in development from Singapore-based PD Design Studios, Dusty Raging Fist is headed to the Wii U eShop later this year. This offering is a part of the same universe as the fighter Dusty Revenge , which is currently in development stages and available on Steam Greenlight.
The folks at RockPaperShotgun recently posted a stirring post-mortem with Mark Venturelli and Gabriel Texeira of Critical Games, the studio behind DungeonLand. It's a surprisingly meaningful tale that, with the right spin, could be a movie of the week: deep in the heart of Brazil, a group of freelance illustrators band together with the stubborn goal of making a video game. The odds are stacked against them in a country sparse with indie game creators. But they fight, they persevere, and they emerge on the other side with the shining gem that is DungeonLand.
What do you get when you combined a formula created by Smash T.V. with a demented fantasy filled theme park where the only thing riding is the heads of the enemies you lopped off? You get DungeonLand a new action game with some addictive elements and plenty of co-op action.
It was only last week that the DungeonLand release date was announced, but it seems a two week lead time may have jumped the gun just a little bit. Today Paradox have announced that DungeonLand will be hitting computers on January 29th instead of the previous date of the 22nd.
We've been following DungeonLand since it was announced last March, and thankfully unlike some other games coming this year, this one is coming in under a year's time - as opposed to a 4 year wait. The 3 player co-op hack and slash game is set to release on the PC on January 22nd. With that Paradox is taking pre-orders for just $9.99 on the game, which will be available from GamersGate and a handful of other digital distribution services.
It seems like we've been waiting ages for Crimson Dragon, the spiritual successor to SEGA's cult-favorite Panzer Dragoon series. Since Microsoft hasn't shared news on the game in more than half a year, the universe seemingly took it upon itself to throw us a bone: the game's PAX East 2012 demo recently leaked on the Japanese Xbox 360 Marketplace, along with a handful of DLC. We didn't get a chance to grab the demo before it was pulled, but the footage we share with you now is the next best thing.
Another step closer to Christmas day and another new one day only offer from Microsoft and XBLA. Several arcade games are present, but the one that catches the co-op eye is Trine 2 for only 400 Microsoft Points, that's down from 1200. This 3 player co-op title is one of the best download experiences out there and a steal at that price.
One of the more pleasant co-op surprises in this past year in gaming was the MOBA-style Awesomenauts that was initially released on PSN and XBLA. Up to three players could team up to to do some good ole fashioned comp stomping against three AI opponents in order to go laning, feed foes, and other terms that I have no idea about. However, others seem to know what's up and must be playing quite a bit. Since its release back in May, the game's seen a PC release, a slew of patches, tweaks, and updates, and even a new character or two or five. For all you fans of MOBA games that are also fervent Mac users, your day has arrived. Awesomenauts is now available on Mac through the Steam client. Finally, PC players and Mac players can team up in wonderful co-op harmony.
If first you don't succeed, Trine and Trine again. This is exactly what Frozenbyte Games have done with their superb Trine 2. Releasing the exact same game that has graced other consoles on the Nintendo Wii U was just not good enough. Therefore, they launched Trine 2: The Director's Cut, the original sequel with added extras. Check out the launch trailer if you don't believe me.
In our exclusive interview with Joe Fricano, Producer of Dungeonland at Critical Studio, we get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this title a unique Action / RPG on the PC. Exclusive screenshots await you and details on how you can enter to win access into the beta.
Trine 2 remains one of the best looking and most impressive co-op downloadable games, receiving the ultimate Co-Optimus accolade of 5 out of 5 when released on PC, PSN and XBLA. With its reduced power the Wii never received the game, but with the Wii U only weeks away, fans of Nintendo systems can buy the game on launch, bu...
Frozenbyte recently announced that an expansion to their gorgeous puzzler, Trine 2, will be released September 6th for Mac and PC. Entitled Goblin Menace, the expansion will feature a new six level campaign as well as new skills that are also available for use in the base game. Trine 2: Collector's Edition owners should already have access to the beta of the game so they can leave feedback via the game's forums.
Like a modern day Nostradamus, Co-Optimus prides itself on being able to predict the future. A while back we had a powerful vision that the 3 player co-op game Awesomenauts would make its way onto PC and this has come to pass courtesy of Steam.
