Masaaki Yamagiwa, Producer on Bloodborne, has a few choice words for you regarding that exact problem. The Souls games, while great (congrats once again to Dark Souls II for receiving our 2014 Game of the Year award), still have their levels hand crafted by programmers. There's only so much a team of overworked individuals can crank out at once. Here to remedy that issue is the concept of Chalice Dungeons.

Players Discover a Dying Light Loot CaveChristopher Metz

There's just something special about trying to exploit a game. Ever since Destiny, I knew that finding "loot caves" was going to be the next big thing within games. Well, this time it's the developers of Dying Light who are getting in on the action and are purposefully adding in special caves as a nod to the now infamous Destiny l...

Last night we took the game for a spin and showcased how you can get around this requirement if you want by joining a friend's game who is already past that point. Some other highlights include some of the abilities you'll unlock, the light character customization, and jumping off 20 story buildings.

Previously only available to Season Pass holders and those aforementioned pre-order gamblers, the pack contains three brand new story missions:  The Chemical Revolution, The American Prisoner, and Killed by Science.  The last two missions sound like the titles of pulpy 1960s spy novels, which, come to think of it, would actually be perfect for the Assassin's Creed universe.

How many players can play Dying Light locally (couch co-op)? How many players can play Dying Light via system link or LAN? How many players can play Dying Light online? How do you begin a co-op session in Dying Light? How does save game progress work for co-op play in Dying Light? Can I join a game if the host is further along than me in Dying Light? What does the Dying Light season pass get you? What kind of things can I expect from co-op play? What are the challenges in co-op? Can I turn off player invasions? How is the death and respawn mechanic handled for co-op? Does Dying Light scale based on the number of players?

Here's the scoop: Make sure you have an active Xbox Live Gold membership (we know, we know), then just head over to each game's page to check out the sale, which runs to the end of the week. Most of the prices have been cut by a healthy margin, but like we gushed above, Titanfall seems to be the best deal. You can grab the main game for $10, the deluxe version for $12.50, and the season pass for $6.25. Pennies, I say. Pennies!

The premise, summarized by Deep Silver themselves, is as follows: you take the reigns of Kyle Crane, an undercover agent sent on a totally bananas mission into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to recover a high-ranking military official. No word on how Kyle obtained his superhuman agility. Maybe he moonlighted teaching CrossFit lessons. Maybe he majored in Parkour at Mirror's Edge University.

Paradox Interactive announced Magicka 2: Learn to Spell Again back at E3 2014, but only now has the healing truly begun. The upcoming sequel features more of what made the original game so insane, including four player co-op action, element-based spell mixing/casting, and friendly fire that makes everything you do dangerous to everyone around. In addition to the revamped old, Magicka 2 comes with a brand new storyline and gameplay that's "different each time you play". Randomly generated stages, perhaps?

The Vita version of the game has 4 player online adhoc co-op and 4 player local on certain missions.  How this translates onto the PS4 version is yet to be known, but 4 player online would make sense.  To try and encourage you to order a copy early, developers Omega Force are offering various bonuses dependent on where you buy the game:

While she's no Moxxie, Sir Hammerlock's sister Aurelia does have a few good qualities to speak of. Her action skill, Cold as Ice, lets her toss out a Frost Diadem Shard that homes in in enemies and deals them constant damage. If the foe dies, the shard moves on to the next enemy, and so on. Great for bugs, not so great for the big stuff.

1.27.2015

Dying Light (Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4) - It looks a lot like Dead Island, and for good reason, but Dying Light sets itself apart from the other zombie games out there with a focus on movement, evasion, and co-op tactics for survival. We had a great hands on preview, now it's time for everyone else to get theirs. [4 player online co-op]

The company that previously brought you Dead Island looks to expand on their first person zombie brawler archetype, partly through the introduction of parkour.  As noted in the preview linked above, the minute-to-minute gameplay tends to focus a bit more on traversal and avoidance than "I'm going to kill every zombie until they're all dead forever".  This will likely shift slightly in the other direction when co-op partners are introduced, though, as players tend to be a bit braver when they're sure someone has their back.
