Long-time fans of the series will likely notice that the voice actor for Frank West has changed. The main reason for the change, according to asset manager Trant Lee-Amies, is because of the 16 year (in-game) time difference between the first Dead Rising and this one. Capcom wanted to ensure that Frank's voice sounded older and better reflected all of that wear and tear.

Two More Monsters Added To Evolve Stage 2's Co-op ModeEnoch Starnes

For those unfamiliar with the Evolve's gigantic prey, let's go through a quick rundown of the latest additions to Stage 2.

The biggest sticking point with Necropolis for me is that I can't really get a good sense for where it fits in the pantheon of rouglikes that are out there now. The action portion works well enough and teaming up with a friend or three makes the journey better, but that feels like it's all it has to offer. It's humor, which seems to be based around poking fun at Dark Souls, could really help it stand out from the crowd; but it never quite sticks the landing and in some places, such as item descriptions, it seems more concerned with delivering a punch line rather than useful information.

The original Battlezone put you in the cockpit of a tank that rotated around a vector drawn world shooting the enemy tanks that popped up every so often. The arcade cabinet even featured a "periscope" viewfinder for looking out. This modernized version has some upgraded graphics, though it's still keeping that vector line style. The cockpit view is moved into the VR headset and you'll be able to look around to check your radar, mission objectives, ammo remaining, and more.

For some, invoking the name of the Mutant League series of games brings back fond memories of raining death upon an opposing team in football, or dismembering a hockey player, or possibly even an animated series. For its creator, Michael Mendheim, it's a little bit more and after 20+ years out of the limelight, he intends to bring it ...

You should check out the page on the PlayStation Store for the full list of games (some of which are definitely not co-op), but here are a few standout titles we saw on there:

Our regular Monday night stream crew (Nick, Mike, Locke, and myself) checked the game out last November while it was still in Early Access, and enjoyed the idea of the title even if it was still a little rough around the edges. Hopefully those past 12 months have allowed developer EKO Software to polish things up. One quick note about the co-op play: you can invite 16 people (in a combination of online and local) to your survivor camp (the open-worldish hub). However, once you go into the actual missions, you're limited to just 4.

What's a down-on-his-luck street fighter to do when The Man rolls in, rounds up his buddies and force feeds them experimental drugs? Go on a bloody violent rampage through the streets of an alternate history U.S.S.R., of course. Mother Russia Bleeds is a classically-styled sidescrolling beat 'em up that focuses on one thing: combat. Also dr...

For a genre which feels impenetrable to the common player, the God Eater series has managed to release a couple titles in the last few months. God Eater 2: Rage Burst brings a sequel with improvements to mechanics, but perhaps not as fulfilling on the story side as the original. The key factor is the accessibility this title brings, giving new play...

All of these updates are bundled up in a package that developer Starbreeze is calling "The Big Score." This update will be applied to the console versions of PAYDAY 2 automatically and will include "more than 20 free content updates...

While you can engage in any of the missions with your friends, much of The Crew's appeal seems to come from treating it, to some degree, like a driving sim. Put on some tunes, plan a route, and just drive. Enjoy the scenery and views as you travel across the countryside. Stop at that one restaurant that everyone says is so good in that one city. Treat it like an exercise in role-playing rather than a structured mission game.

First up is the Librarian, the psyker (or mage) of the Space Marines, who wields a Storm Bolter and deadly psychic powers. Supporting the Librarian is the Apothecary, a specialist who possesses biomedical and scientific training in order to tend to the squad's wounds. Of course you'll need some firepower to back them up, so there's a heavy weapon support and tactician specialist as well. The heavy weapon support wields an assault cannon to take out the Genestealer threat, and the tactician is able to provide passive buffs to the whole squad in order to boost their abilities. Each class will gain new skills and abilities as you earn experience during missions, allowing you to further customize your preferred Terminator.

While the lack of a co-op campaign may disappoint some, it sounds like Infinity Ward took that energy and focused it into Zombies in Spaceland. More than just a way to shoot zombies, the dev team took that three year development time to make something that would feel very different from the rest of the game. One of the ways they've done this is to add a unique respawn mechanic. Players that fall to the zombie swarms will be transported into an "80s themed arcade... [with] fully functioning carnival-style games and some classic Activision 2600 games you can play." If you rack up enough points in these games, you can "earn your way back to life before the round ends." Depending on the quality of those games, I may end up intentionally dying just so I can spend more time in that arcade!
