When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

It's a very long list of games on Major Nelson's list and we won't be calling out all the titles that are on it, but in addition to those given above, here are a few standout co-op games we saw:

The game and its four player online co-op has been out for a while on PC, but as we all know, the journey of porting a game is a long and treacherous one.  Soon enough, you and three friends can engage in a little open world/loot shooter/hack-and-slash action together on the console of your choice.

The four player co-op game hit PC back in 2015, and to be honest, I wasn't aware of any plans to take it elsewhere, but here we are.  Assuming nothing dramatic has changed in the porting process, it's a twin-stick shooter in which you follow the tale of John Strong as he takes on aliens and a host of other enemies.  Check out the original release trailer to see the game in action.

This new DLC for Black Ops 3, titled "Zombies Chronicles," is the fifth one for the title and has been the subject of much rumor and speculation over the past few weeks. What the bundle entails is a total of eight remastered maps from the zombie mode in Treyarch's past few Call of Duty games. Specifically, the DLC will include:

Due out in 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Bloody Zombies looks to up the ante on the "punch zombies to death... again" genre by introducing an added wrinkle - VR.  See, the four player co-op game is also gonna be on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR, allowing for a bit of combo co-op between those wearing headsets and those on the couch.  It's playable online as well, but no word yet on what restrictions (if any) exist between playstyles.

Rebellion is bringing their blue soldier back in Rogue Trooper Redux sometime "soon," though there isn't too much to go on at this point other than the fact that it's a remastered version of the original. If you missed out on that 2006 title, then enjoy this new video that lets you know just who (or, rather, what) is Rog...

Much like in Left 4 DeadEarthfall lets up to four players team up to battle through a variety of campaigns with each campaign further split up into a series of missions. The missions will task players with fulfilling certain objectives but unlike that zombie shooter that was constantly pushing you forward, Earthfall lets you build little outposts that can be used as a kind of base of operations. You can construct defenses, like barriers, and put up turrets to better stave off the alien menace. At the moment, there is only one campaign available and four missions within that campaign, so it's still early on in the development.

There have been a few updates to the title over the past few months, many of which have focused on improving the overall stability of the game, but the latest one is pretty significant as it introduces a new way to play the title in co-op, and also lays out some future features. The big addition in this update is the "Special Mission," a new map you can choose within the Multiplayer setup. This map generates a randomized sequence of missions to complete using the level layout of an existing chapter, i.e., you'll still be on the same map as Chapter 1 of the game, but you won't be following the same mission objectives as before. At the moment, there's only one of these Special Mission maps available, but the development team plans on expanding that, eventually, to all nine chapters. That would go along way towards making the co-op portion of the game a whole lot more fun and worth replaying with a group of friends.

The trial period for the game is different depending on what part of the world you reside in and what platform you use.  Thankfully, Ubisoft have produced a map that tells you what is what.  Essentially you can play for free over 4-7th May, with some jiggery-pokery around the edges:
