Back in 2013, Nordic Games bought a significant portion of properties that were associated with former developer/publisher THQ after it filed for bankruptcy. Last year, they Nordic Games rebranded itself as THQ Nordic and started doing some new work and republishing of those titles it acquired. Titan Quest was one of these properties and they did a little bit of rework on it before putting it back out there as Titan Quest: Anniversary, which also includes the first expansion "Immortal Throne." I think we all figured that that would be the end of things, but then the Austrian developer dropped new DLC. It's impressive that company is both keeping many of these titles alive by making them available again for modern consumption, while also working to add new content.

More Members of the Halo Family Now Backwards CompatibleMatthew Squaire

First up, Halo 3. Originally launched in 2007, it was the first installment from the Halo series to make it to the fairly new Xbox 360 (which originally came out in ‘05). The game featured the aspects that players had grown to love but with the new hardware and Xbox LIVE becoming easier to jump into on the new console, this game was a must have from the start. It marked the end of Master Chief’s (initial) trilogy, but also the start of Halo games being known for pushing graphics, gameplay and online firefights to the limit.

While most of these goodies are cosmetic in nature, such as a Diablo-themed portrait for StarCraft II, there is a significant addition on the way for Diablo 3 in the form of the "Darkening of Tristram" event that will be patched into the game sometime soon (possibly this week). This event will allow players to travel back to the original world of Diablo, albeit with some graphics that have been intentionally "retro-styled" and none of the original classes from that game. Once patch 2.4.3 arrives, you'll be able to enter a special portal in Old Tristram and find yourself back in 1996 era of Diablo.

The game features a single-player campaign and a separate co-op mode for two players locally. The co-op mode lets you replay the same levels from the campaign, but you'll face additional challenges, such as rescuing all the civilians in the level. While the first player can earn stars/medals and progress, the second player is only a copy of the first and just drops in as a second support ship, essentially.

Unfortunately for us, it seems the game doesn't have a very stable online architecture. We sadly couldn't keep a connection long enough to even complete a level. This was a game that used to run over 14.4 Modems, and the only time it would disconnect is when your Mom accidentally picked up the phone.

The game is pretty much a revamping of the original title, but there are a few new goodies for Duke Nukem fans, including an all-new episode comprised of eight levels created by the original designers: Allen Blum III and Richard "Levelord" Gray. Perhaps now we can get some resolution with that dangling plot thread about what life is like after the death of the Alien Queen. Along with the new episode, Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour will include:

For those of you who are not aware, Surgeon Simulator's challenge comes from the game's control rather than direct obstacles (think Octodad: Dadliest Catch). Players assume the role of a surgeon from first-person view, controlling a single arm and hand. Each finger is controlled by a certain button and getting the right combination of appendages in the proper location can be difficult, mainly to pick up and utilize tools in an operation. Depending on your ability to control your movements, you'll more than likely damage your patients at some point and cause them to lose blood (their lifebar). If you can complete the operations without losing your patients to blood loss, then you win. Simple as that, right? With a co-op partner, not particularly.

Halo: Combat Evolved was the game that sold the Xbox. Ten years have gone by and Halo has made its mark on console gaming by becoming an absolute juggernaut in the market and a series worth billions of dollars. So it should come as no surprise that the game that started it all has already been remade in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. We dive into the remastered game, its co-op and multiplayer, and come out with only a few plasma burns to show.

It's hard to believe that 10 years ago today, Microsoft launched the Xbox console.  At the time I was a college student and I remember thinking - there's no way Microsoft can compete with Sony or Nintendo.  Yet, there I was on launch day with my college roomate picking up the big black and green box with a copy of Halo.  That weekend we spent the entire time playing through the game in co-op.
