X, of course, is not the tenth entry in the series.  Rather, it's a rework of Metal Slug 2 released a year after the original that makes a number of core changes.  Among these are remixed music, altered enemy locations/difficulty, added weaponry, and a new announcer.  This Xbox One version of the game comes to us courtesy of the ACA NEOGEO series, which works to replicate NEOGEO classics for the modern gamer.

Resident Evil: Revelations Out On August 29th For PlayStation 4 And Xbox OneEnoch Starnes

In addition to the video, Capcom also let fans know that Nintendo Switch versions of both Revelations 1 and 2 are on their way later this year.  To our knowledge, details specific to the games' co-op modes are pretty sparse for the Switch releases, but we'll be keeping tabs on them as time goes on.  In the meantime, you can check out the announcement video for PS4 and X1, which shows off the game's upgraded resolution and extra content.

Resident Evil: Revelations follows series darlings Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield through the events that occurred between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. It was originally released back in 2012 on the 3DS with PS3, Xbox360, PC, and WiiU versions following in 2013. This newest version on PS4 and Xbox One will not only run in full 1080p resolution, but will also include all of the previously released Raid Mode DLC for no additional cost.

Capcom has shared a couple videos with us to show off how the past 5 years have been treating Resident Evil: Revelations, and I've got to admit, it's looking pretty decent.  The two videos below combine for about 8 minutes of gameplay footage, so if you're just dying to see what the game will be throwing at you (and somehow didn't see it over the past five years), now's a great chance to.

The original version of the game came out back in 2012 on the 3DS only for it to get a HD update for the then current consoles and PC.  The game offers 2 player online co-op and there is no news yet whether this is the HD version released again or a mega HD HD version:

Technically speaking, Monster Hunter Generations isn't a proper full-on sequel. Think of it like a scenic detour, the kind you take when you want to drive by the world's largest ball of aluminum foil. Generations strips out a lot of story and circumstance from the main game in favor of adding tons of new weapons, quests, armor sets, and jus...

There are only two things to keep in mind while playing Gotta Protectors: protect the princess, and defeat your enemies. Preferably in that order. The game features six unique classes, ranging from the standard "fighter" to the less-than-standard "old guy". Each class has a different set of attacks and control style, allowing you to dive in and get your hands dirty with melee combat, eliminate baddies from afar using magic, or even build barricades to be all tactical and stuff.

Just like with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Nintendo will randomly send out two codes to select members of My Nintendo. If you're signed up to receive e-mails from the big N, you might just get one. Then again, you might not, which leads to the inevitable "please sir, can I have a code?" on forums and social media across the web. The demo does include both local and online co-op for up to four players, allowing you to pick a weapon, pick a hunting style, and take on the kangaroo-like Great Maccao, the big angry owl Malfestio, and Nargacuga.

The Team Kirby Clash allows each player (each using his or her own 3DS) to choose a role, such as warrior, healer, or mage. Once the team is formed, you'll try to take down a boss as quickly as possible using your platforming skills while also supporting the team with the unique abilities of your role. After beating the boss, you'll earn experience that increases your stats and unlocks new abilities, which allows you to take on tougher and tougher bosses.

The co-op has been expanded this time around into the newly dubbed "Rescue Mode." Up to four players, either online or local, can team up to go on rescue missions and free hostages. It's like "Rambo," but with chickens and penguins. What's more, every hostage you rescue gets added to the cast of playable characters, which you can customize and load out with as many weapons of death as he or she can carry.

Capcom recently announced Monster Hunter X will indeed see a North American localization. Dubbed Monster Hunter Generations, the game features lots of throwbacks to previous titles in the series, reviving old weapons styles, monsters, locations, and more. New to the Monster Hunter series are playable palicos (yes, you get to be a cat), four flagship monsters, and gameplay tweaks that smooth over rough spots leftover from the fourth game in the series. Crafting, gathering, upgrading and mounting are all still here, only now you can do them with style.

Siege of Dragonspear fills the gap between Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition like some sort of globby glue substance. The gameplay will remain largely the same as previous Enhanced Edition releases, meaning you'll run around an isometric world beating things up, gaining experience points, and just generally RPGing the heck out of things with your friends. Co-op supports six online cross-platform players, which is about as awesome as it gets.

It is sometimes the case that free DLC is a little paltry, but MH4U is providing some great extras for free.  There are 14 new quests, but perhaps the most fun element is new Devil May Cry and Animal Crossing themed outfits for your characters.  Capcom have produced a detailed trailer for the DLC that highlights the various quests that you will get:
