Roguelike Necropolis Adds Four Player Co-Op, Gets Release Date

Harebrained Schemes, best known for reviving the Shadowrun games with Shadowrun: Dragonfall and Shadowrun Returns, has recently announced that their latest title, Necropolis, will now support four player co-op. The game is an action-based roguelike, meaning you'll be swinging your sword at monsters and having to start from scratch should you die, but it has a couple unique quirks.

Rocketbirds 2: Evolution Announced for PS4 and Vita

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken was one of those titles that slipped past the radar of a lot of people, but it was a fairly solid co-op action platformer with some fun mechanics. The developer recently announced on the European PlayStation blog that a sequel, Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, is in the works and brings with it some needed enhancements.

The Chaos Engine Remake Hits Steam August 29

This is a co-op game announcement that surprised me mainly because I had never heard of it before. I mean, there are plenty of games I'd never heard of before, sure; but I would have sworn to you just yesterday that I could name you the great co-op shooters on the SNES/Sega Genesis consoles. Apparently I somehow missed The Chaos Engine, a top-down shooter that had its heyday back in the early 90s. The good news is that I'll get a chance to check it out as a remake has been in the works and will see release next week.

Super Motherload Digging Into PS3 and PS4 Later This Year

XGen Studios is a developer most known for their Flash based games, such as Stick RPGDefend Your Castle, and Stick Arena Dimensions,  in addition to the occasional WiiWare title. They're looking to make a bigger splash in the console market this year as they release a sequel to one of their more popular games, Motherload, aptly named, Super Motherload. Slated to be release on PS3 and PS4, with PC and Mac releases at some point down the line, Super Motherload is a game that's all about digging in that lovely red Martian soil for valuables. Yet deeper, more sinister things lurk below Mars surface... which to me is kind of a "no... really?!" moment. I, mean, didn't a space marine already go through all this not once, not twice, but at the very least three times?!

Last minute issue pushes back XBLA release, new date TBD

Monaco's XBLA Release Will Be Delayed

I know what you're saying, "didn't you just post your review of the game, which I totally didn't skip to the end of, and now I'm all excited to play it on my Xbox?" I'm sorry to say it's sad, but true. The XBLA version of Monaco: What's Yours is Mine is getting a delayed release. News of this came just yesterday afternoon from the official Monaco Facebook page. Not many details are provided as to the cause of the delay - the post merely states "there is an issue which requires that we push our Xbox Live arcade game release date a little" - or how long that delay will be.
