Prior to this update, if you wanted to play Super Dungeon Bros online, you had to play with three other people. Not a problem if you had three friends who also had the game, but very problematic if you only had one buddy who owned it. With the update, that problem is solved and online co-op is allowed for just two or three players. What's more, you can create a private lobby to ensure that you're only playing with your friends.

Episode 3 of Eon Alter Arrives Next MonthJason Love

Titled "Watcher in the Dark," Episode 3 of Eon Altar picks up right where Episode 2 left off with your party (you are playing this with a group of friends, right?) in unfamiliar territory searching for a way out. Similar to the previous episodes, this new one includes two chapters within it, the "Paths of Madness" and the "Hall of the Builders," and amounts to about "3 hours of new content." You will need the first two episodes to play, though, so if you're thinking of getting into the game, probably want to go ahead and just pick up that season pass.

All of these games have been available for free throughout the past year as part of Ubisoft's 30th Anniversary celebration and now, to cap the year off, they're making all of them available to folks for free. This offer is only good until this Sunday, December 18, though, so be sure to head over to the Ubisoft Club website and snag them all before the weekend ends.

The puzzle aspects of the game are rather interesting, as our own Tally Callahan discovered when she got hands-on with it last spring during PAX East. Players each control their own cube and have to navigate their way around a platform while syncing their progress with their co-op partners'. A misstep or if the timing gets off, then you or your partner may be on the unfortunate end of some spikes or a laser beam.

So what all will you get with this remake? Well, in addition to new stages and new bosses, you'll also get two new playable characters and the ability to play the game with up to three other people! That's a 100% increase in characters and players from the original! The title will let you play through the entire campaign with your buddies, shooting up all those enemies and bosses along the way.

Along with the map and Steam Workshop Support, the game is also getting an interesting new feature with "Custom Training" mode. This mode will let players design their own training module by picking the map, the type of sequence, i.e., striker or goalie, and its difficulty. You'll then be placed into the map with the ability to place the car, the ball, and control the path the ball will take. Once you've got all that figured out and tested, you can upload it for others to enjoy. It's an interesting way to create some very specific shot training exercises and up your game.

So what's included in this DLC? Well, along with eight new levels, two new chefs, and two new recipes (roast turkey and stew), you get a flamethrower. As if things catching on fire wasn't already enough of a hazard, your co-op partner now has full access to a mobile source of deadly flame. This will surely end well for all parties involved.

Unit 4 is an old school looking platformer, but it has some rare co-op features.  Not only can you play with up to 4 people, but each character is slightly different, therefore varying the gameplay.  The below trailer shows off the 4 different characters and what they can do:

Xenoraid looks like an old school shmup. In many ways, it even plays like an old school shmup. But when you jump in that ship and get a feel for the controls, you realize this game is about as modern as it gets. Once you get used to the ship swapping feature, the upgrade menus, and the clever co-op mode, you'll realize this game goes far beyond...

Overdriven Reloaded has so much going for it I'm tempted to just copy/paste a bullet point list of its features, make a lame pun about "bullet" lists for a shooter, then tell you to go play it. The remake of the classic Overdriven has six game modes, four levels of difficulty, hidden alien artifacts to find, co-op for up to four ...

The idea behind LittleBigPlanet 3's challenge levels is simple. Every two weeks a new one is rolled out to the community so players can compete for high scores. Each challenge features a slightly different take on a mini-game built with the LBP3 engine. The first one is a survival type arcade game where you push OddSock above the line and avoid fireballs as long as you can. After that it's a side scrolling race, followed by a punch-happy boxing game. The LBP team promises more challenges are in the pipeline, so if you're terrible at one, just kick back and wait for your day in the spotlight.

Dungeon Bros is out now on PC, PS4 and One, and whilst some people will be paying $19.99 for the title, owners of Xbox Gold will get the game for 'free' this month.  With four player combo online/offline co-op, it is certainly worth checking out at that price.
