 Nioh: Complete Edition (PC) - supports up to two players online throughout the main missions, and up to three players online in the special "Abyss" mode. Team Ninja's excursion into the realm of a "Dark Souls-like" is absolutely fantastic. While fans of Dark Souls might miss the interconnected world/exploration attributes of that series, the set mission structure of Nioh provides a better way to hop in and out at your own pace. While the co-op play can be a bit a confusing (one player has to complete the specific mission their buddy is attempting before they are allowed to their game), there's a lot of fun to be had. The Complete Edition includes all DLC released for the game.

Curse of Osiris DLC for Destiny 2 DatedJason Love

The initial rumors that were heard last month were spot on and the only real new bit of info is the release date (December 5 for every platform) and the increased Character/Power levels (25 and 330, respectively). When the DLC arrives next month, players will be able to head to Mercury, a planet that has only ever been a setting for PvP matches, to take on new quests/missions, hang out in a new social space (the Lighthouse), play new Strikes, puzzle through a new Raid, and enjoy new loot.

While a specific date hasn't been nailed down, Overkill just released a dev diary to give us a brief update on the game's progress.  In fact, it even includes a clip of the game running on the Switch's portable mode.  Soon enough, you can make everyone around you on the train feel awkward as you plow through police, take hostages, and haul duffel bags of money around.

We get into a bit about 35 minutes or so into the video, but one of the most notable aspects of this game over the original is how there are a few "one step forward, two steps back" kinds of things. For instance, the story/lore is way better and (actually) sensical, but the fact that they kind of force you through most or all of it before you can play specific aspects of the game (like the strikes), is really odd. Initially, I thought the Strikes might serve as more of a mini/starter-type raids while also providing story. They sort of filled the latter role in the first game. Here, though, they don't really do either as they are strictly limited to the Strike Playlist, the story beats are tangential at best, and with a couple of small exception, don't really show off the potential of what Destiny 2 delivers in its Raid. In their streamlining/focus on bringing about some quality of life improvements, something was lost along the way.

The main co-op focus for all of this seasonal news is specifically around the Clan Perks. Each week, members of a Destiny Clan can contribute experience points towards their overall Clan Level and unlock new perks, like better drops from Public Events or more credits earned for killing certain enemies, that apply to all members of that clan. Since the title launched last month on the consoles, the perks/experience have always been couched in terms of "this season," which implied that they would get reset at some point. With the announcement this weekend, Bungie has provided some more context, although no official end date for "Season 1" has been given. The developer also stated that players will have a chance to earn more experience (in order to earn more Bright Engrams) for themselves and for their Clan towards the end of a season with an event they're calling "Clarion Call."

It's another big week for video game releases. Assassin's Creed Origins and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are both out this Friday, and promise to be packed full of gaming goodness. However, we're really all here for the co-op, right?! Destiny 2 makes its way to the PC (finally), Super Mario Odyssey ...

Back in September, Atlus announced that Dragon's Crown (the beat-em-up-meets-RPG originally released four years ago) would be coming to PS4 as Dragon's Crown Pro. The Japanese release date was originally announced for January 25th, but has now been delayed two weeks to February 8th. There's still no word regarding the int...

Sometime in the near future, Firaxis will be adding two such targets to Civilization VI:  Khmer and Indonesia.  Both have a slight water/faith focus, but before I give too many details, it'd probably be best to check out their accompanying videos to see it all in action.  First up, we've got Khmer.

Choose to play as either the U.S. Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Army as you battle across seven different islands that were key to the Pacific campaign during World War II. When you're done playing through the campaign with your friends, you can hop into any one of the new maps to enjoy some old fashioned "comp stomping." The DLC also adds new vehicles, like the Stuart light tank, as well as new weapons, such as Flamethrowers and katanas.

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).
