While the shooting of undead hordes and other beasties isn't anything too new, there are a few interesting tidbits shown off in the video below. For starters, the gold and loot you collect during a level can be spent later to unlock new weapons to use. Additionally, different weapons will have different slots that can be used to power-up your arsenal so your chosen weapon does more damage or shoots ice bullets. There are also relics you can acquire behind special, hidden puzzle doors you'll have to work together to solve. These relics grant you and your buddies access to new special powers via the mystical amulet. Gotta say, looking forward to this game more and more!

[E3 2018] - Fallout 76 May Allow For a Purely Cooperative Experience With FriendsJason Love

Details on this are pretty scarce for the time being; somewhat understandable as it sounds like Bethesda is focusing more on ensuring that they have a stable game that runs on launch day. The discussion of private servers (and modding) begins around the 9:00 minute mark in the video below, but be forewarned that it's not a lengthy discussion. Todd does not mention if those private servers will allow you to invite just your friends into the game (though, we certainly hope you could) so you can ensure you have a strictly cooperative experience and avoid any PvP. It's worth noting that Todd also states in the same interview (starting around the 6:55 minute mark) that they're still balancing that aspect as they "don't want it to be grief-y in any way."

The "Killing Floor 2 - Summer Sideshow: Treacherous Skies Update" (which, for sanity's sake, will henceforth be referred to as "the update") is first and foremost adding a new map to the collection: Airship.  In it, players are working together to help Lockhart reach his home island by "completing a series of increasingly challenging objectives", punctuated by blasting waves of zeds into smithereens.  A new community map, called Endless Lockdown, has been added as well.

Based on PC Gamer's hands-on impressions of the mode from the E3 show floor, Tandem Bike is possibly going to end some friendships. One of the major draws to the Trials games is that feeling that it's your fault that you biffed that landing and have to start over; you just didn't get the right rotation, or you didn't brake soon enough. That handy "restart level" button drops you back in immediately so you can instantly try again, but you're most likely "on tilt" and you're gonna make a new mistake that frustrates you further and increases that feeling of "I will finish this level OR SO HELP ME!!!!"

Last December, during the 2017 Game Awards, we got a two-minute trailer that showed off some of the horrors that await the team of explorers. In his hands-on impressions (and in the footage below), Christopher details how stealth is an important part to GTFO as it helps to keep the horrors at bay:

Online play isn't the only new feature, though. There are new maps, new ways the stages will change and impede your cooking attempts, new recipes, more chefs from which to choose, and the ability to now throw things (which very much sounds like a mixed bag of fun). All-in-all, it's more Overcooked, which I'm 100% good with.

Earthfall will see a full release on July 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.  It's been in Steam's Early Access program for some time, though, so it's not necessarily an unknown quantity.  While Steam's user rating system is notably fickle and subject to change, the game has currently garnered a "Mostly Positive" rating on the platform, which isn't easy for an Early Access title.

Alright, so... I have a lot of thoughts on what Bungie's doing here, but front-and-center, I'm kind of annoyed that they're pulling a cheap narrative trick here. Want to get people invested in the game/story again? Kill a character off. I'm not saying it doesn't work, I'm just saying that this is a low move to pull. Anyways, I know one buddy who's excited to see Uldren "The Crow" Sov make his return to Destiny, so I guess that's something.

Similar to last year's entry, the game will ship with a selection of 40 songs that you can groove along to using game controllers or (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions only) using the Just Dance App on iOS and Android devices. Local co-op will be supported in a number of songs, with the number of dancers ranging between two and four for the Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and Switch versions, and up to six for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions thanks to that previously mentioned app. The Kids Mode will be making its return as well so parents you can enjoy busting out some dance moves with your kiddos.

We weren't sure if the title would have any co-op when it was first announced during E3 2017. Fortunately, it appears Ubisoft has clarified the matter in the FAQ page on the official website. The title features two player drop-in/drop-out couch co-op throughout the game. Both players can pilot and play the same starship (player one scans it into the game, and the second player can choose to control it), or the second player can hook up their own Starlink dock to a controller and scan in their own ship. It's worth noting that you don't have to buy any physical ships (outside of the one that comes with the requisite Starter Pack) as Ubisoft will be offering a variety of ships to purchase digitally.
