For me, the star player in that line-up is Assault Android Cactus. In the realm of twin-stick shooters, it is absolutely a stand-out title. It is friendly enough that players of all familiarity levels can hop in and have fun, but there is such an intriguing depth. Seriously, look up some competitive/high score play to see just how crazy it can get. So if you like twin-stick shooters and want a great couch co-op game, definitely pick up Assault Android Cactus.

While TSR's full roster will offer fifteen characters from the Sonic universe upon release, the E3 demo only contained six:  Sonic, Shadow, Tails, Knuckles, Rouge, and Omega.  Thanks to a recent tweet from the speedster himself, though, we now know Amy Rose, Big the Cat, and a quartet of Chao characters make up three of the roster's nine remaining slots.

Before shooters took over the gaming scene, Bomberman was the premiere multiplayer gaming franchise. Though the series was known mostly for its competitive multiplayer, some of the best entries in the series – especially Saturn Bomberman – featured local co-op as well. After letting the series lie dormant for too long, Konami has finall...

As a quick note on that last point, the Bedrock Update is free for all existing users of the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition of the game and you'll notice the name change automatically. For anyone looking to buy the game new, whether digitally or via physical media, it'll just be listed as Minecraft.

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.

Unfortunately, The Behemoth decided that the game has finally reached an age where they can start sunsetting a few of the more costly/time-consuming features.  The first of these is the ability to share created levels online.  Come June 25th, players will lose access to playlists and one-off community levels.  You can still use the game's Level Editor feature locally, but the game's marketplace of bespoke user creations will be gone.

Epic Loon will be giving you a chance to explore these tapes' inner worlds on June 28th, when it hits Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.  In it, you and up to three friends play as aliens who are determined to destroy some poor sap's VHS collection.  There are four worlds to explore, but you'll have to dodge both the dangers in each tape and remote-controlled attacks.

That's not all, though!  Alongside the start of Season 8 of the game's Ranked mode, the "Salty Shores" update brings with it a brand new arena named, you guessed it, Salty Shores.  Developer Psyonix claims that it's their "sunniest map to date", which probably also means that it's the hottest.  I most certainly do not envy those poor drivers, sweltering in their turbo-infused cars.  Let's hope nobody has leather seats.

Despite the protagonists' constantly cheery disposition, it feels like things keep getting harder for them.  They just survived an encounter with the Chaos Commanders, and starting May 25th, they'll have to take on yet another group who've managed to grab hold of the Chaos Power - the Knights of the White Lily.  I don't think I'd be able to sustain that level of joy in the face of a seemingly endless obstacles, but hey, I guess doing what you love counts for something.

The game is set around the time of the original Halo: Combat Evolved and puts you in the boots of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST). Along with Master Chief and the rest of the UNSC, you'll be fighting Covenant forces on the "Alpha Halo" ring. As far as the action itself goes, it looks like it'll be a pretty straightforward on-rails shooter in the same vein as titles like Area 51 or Time Crisis.

I played a bunch of Dragon's Crown when it first came out and even convinced my partner to play, though she raised a few eyebrows over some of the character art. So, there may be some truth behind the latest trailer Atlus put out.

Will Bring Viking Violence Straight To Your CouchEnoch Starnes

Monster Couch's new game, Die for Valhalla!, is taking that belief to heart.  In it, you and up to three friends play as novice valkyries who are saving the world by - you guessed it - beating the tar out of things until the problem goes away.  As it so happens, the problem this time around is a Great Old One.  I typically don't think of cosmic horrors as something that can be punched into submission, but hey, if anyone can do it, I'd say it's the vikings.
