The core "hook" to Circuit Breakers is that all the weapons have unlimited ammo, however, shooting also uses up special crystals (dropped by enemies) that upgrade your gun. This "tug of war" mechanic means you shouldn't just "spray and pray" and adds an interesting strategic element to the usual twin-stick shooter gameplay.

Happy Dungeons Will Grant Double Experience Until The End Of TimeEnoch Starnes

As a result, they've decided that the game's Story Quests and Infinite Dungeons will grant double experience points for... well, forever.  It's an interesting decision, and possibly the only "infinite" limited-time event, but hey, if it makes the community happy, then who am I to judge?

 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.

To maintain his lifestyle, Octodad must continue to blend into human society. Understandably (being an octopus), this is a struggle. The co-op mode tasks up to four players with controlling Octodad's tentacles. You can learn more about how that works in practice in our Co-op Review, but it seems to me that the Switch may offer a stronger implementation of this goofy form of co-op than the game's other platforms.

While the original supported just two players, Guacamelee! 2 will support four player drop-in/drop-out local co-op throughout the campaign. Awww yeah! Now you and your gaming buddies can all don your luchador masks and drop some flying elbows on foes.

As a result, the announcement that Rocket League would be arriving on the platform this holiday season made perfect sense.  Fans of the game simply had to patiently wait on a release date.  Now, it's my pleasure to inform you that the game will be in our grubby little hands on November 14th.

To this day, the one twin-stick shooter I still occasionally go back to and play again is Witch Beam's Assault Android Cactus. There is so much depth to the gameplay that every time I pick it up, I feel like I learn something new; and playing through it with a buddy (or three) makes it even better. So, head's up Xbox One owners, it'...

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...

While there is undoubtedly a core player-vs-player component to the game, teaming up with four friends to take on an A.I. controlled team is fully supported. However, it's worth noting that those options are somewhat limited at this time. Originally, there were plans to allow up to four players to team up locally, online, via LAN, or some combination thereof (combo co-op). Things happen, understandably, during development and now it looks like the co-op is a bit more limited. You can play any of the available modes (Season, Playoffs, or Arcade [Play Now]) with up to four players locally with couch co-op (i.e., all players on the same PC looking at the same screen) using four game controllers.

Specifically, it'll be the ’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 (from 2 Fast 2 Furious) and ’70 Dodge Charger R/T (from The Fast and The Furious).  Each of these will cost $1.99 and come with their own sets of decals.  The Skyline will have the 2Bold, 2Cool, 2Tuff, Clean Cut, The Clutch, and Home Stretch options, and the Charger will have the Alameda Twin, Flames, Good Graces, Rally, Sinclair, and Wheelman to choose from.  You can see both in action below:

The trailer for the game, below, boasts an astonishing 4,340 levels for you and your friends to work through, plus a ton of extra color schemes that weren't available in the original version of the game.  Given that the trailer reaches just over three minutes, I think it's fair to say that the developers are pretty proud of their work.

Being able to play with your friends regardless of platform is a great step in the right direction for gamers as a whole and adds value to whichever edition players get theirs hands on. That being said, Sony opted out of being a part of this togetherness, meaning neither the PlayStation 3 nor PS4 versions will be compatible. Whether or not the comments in the video about the universe not exploding and everything being better together are meant at Sony directly will probably never be answered.
