LBP3 players can now purchase costumes for Shredder, Rocksteady, Krang (Big Toggle), Krang (Little Toggle), Bebop, or the common Foot Soldier. These character costumes can either be purchased individually (for $1.99) or all together with the "TMNT Villains Pack" (for $5.99). Of course, if your tastes run more towards the hero side of things, you can still pick up Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, or Master Splinter costumes, which were released last fall.

Raise the Dead Next Week in Diablo 3Jason Love

Just one more week until you can enjoy Bone Spears, Blood Golems, and all the skeletons you can muster, provided you own the Reaper of Souls expansion on the PC or Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One (sorry PS3 and 360). This new add-on content finally has a price, too: $14.99. However, it's not just the Necromancer class you'll get with that, you also get the following:

After going hands-on with Dauntless at PAX East 2017, I've been keeping an eye on the on this monster-hunting, "unapologetically co-op" game. This week, developer Phoenix Labs announced a date to a special Founder's Alpha: August 18th. Founders Packs were announced back in April, with three available tiers: S...

The main hook to "Salmon Run" is that in addition to fending off waves of enemies, called "Salmonids," you and your teammates will also need to collect a number of "Golden Eggs," which drop from bigger foes, within a set time limit. Even after you collect all the eggs, however, you still have to survive the remainder of the wave. The mode also has a difficulty setting that goes from 5% (easiest) to 100% (hardest). Even on the easiest difficulty, you'll need to work with your teammates to call out bosses and incoming threats.

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.

Granted, huddling around a computer screen isn't exactly the ideal way to couch co-op something, but as senior programmer Stephen Glindmeyer points out, our modern 1080p screens are way better than those CRT TVs of the past. "When you get a bunch of friends together, it’s nice to be able to play a modern game without having to buy 4 copies and 4 gaming PC’s.  With modern 1080p monitors, each quadrant of a 4 player splitscreen actually has 7x as many pixels as the entire screen in Mario Kart 64 or Goldeneye!"

While there are some similarities in the overall action RPG/loot shooter idea that one could draw between Anthem and Bungie's Destiny, the few minutes of gameplay that was shown also had some Mass Effect vibes to it in the way the combat plays out and the overall player mobility (players have jet packs and can boost run). Players will don exosuits - called Javelins - that come in a few different class types, each of which can be customized with abilities and gear of varying degrees of rarity. The "balanced" Ranger and "heavy-hitter" Colossus are specifically mentioned and shown off in the footage, but we also catch a glimpse of another exosuit that seems to be a little more "magical" (for lack of a better descriptor) towards the end. In combat, players appear to have three abilities that are mapped to the bumper buttons in addition to their guns.

From the reveal video and description it sounds like a co-op version of Uncharted or Tombraider, where you'll be hunting treasure in ancient ruins from civilizations long gone. Players will have to survive traps, solve puzzles, and of course shoot creepy creatures.

The core conceit to Fortnite, if you've understandably forgotten what this game is even about, is that you and up to three of your best (online) co-op buddies will team up to fight off hordes of enemies at night, and scavenge for materials to build a killer fort during the day. It's part Minecraft, part third-person action shooter, and part tower defense ala Orcs Must Die!. Mix in some loot and you're all set. The concept was very promising when it was first revealed all those years ago, and after this much development, we're hopeful that it's been refined to razor sharp edge... cause it kind of needs to be at this point.

Getting out of prison isn't easy, that's why you need some buddies to help you dig that tunnel, or build that ramp made out of paper napkins and spit, or act as a distraction so you can swipe a guard's keys. We've known for some time that The Escapists 2 would allow up to four players to team up, and now we finally get to ...
