Crimsonland makes it onto PS4 only 10 Years Later than the PC

The Playstation 4 is a beast of a machine, but owners of said console may find themselves playing mostly downloadable games as it is also an Indie game darling.  More independent fun is on the way on July 15th in the form of Crimsonland, a 4 player local co-op shooter that has the whiff of Geometry Wars about it, but is actually based on a 2003 PC original.

The sequel to the indie twin-stick shooter has a new trick

Waves: Arena Tactics Debuts Co-Op Mode

The once veritable abundance of twin-stick shooters has slacked off a bit since Geometry Wars first hit the scene. That's not to say there haven't been some great ones released, but they're getting fewer and far between. Fortunately, there's another gem on the way that combines twin-stick shooting and cooperative gameplay with an unlikely element: rogue-like.

4 players can work together to design and run a zoo

Partner Up to Become Zoo Tycoons on Xbox One

Frontier Developments' Kinectimals was one of the earliest Kinect games available and allowed you to play with, poke and rummage some animals, but it lacked depth.  Perhaps their Xbox One game, Zoo Tycoon will solve this?  Up to 4 players can join up online to design a Zoo and manage it together; all the time using Kinect to play with, poke and rummage the animals.

Ouuurrrr castle, is a very very very fine castle

E3 2013 - Stronghold Crusader 2 Eyes On Impressions

The Stronghold series has been around now on PCs for over 15 years, with the RTS garnering millions of sales over its lifetime. Honestly, it's surprising there aren't more games out there that are similar. While the series started out set in medieval England, the Crusader branch took things to the deserts of the Middle East. Now that series is getting a new game on a brand new 3D engine and being self published by Firefly Studios. In an AirStream trailer across from the LA convention center we went eyes on with the new game. Stronghold Crusader 2 is still early in development but it's already shaping up to have many of the core gameplay elements that made the original so popular. While the game will have a campaign, which will serve as both a tutorial and a series of challenges, the meat and potatoes of Stronghold is the game's skirmish mode. It's here that Firefly has put a lot of attention and added the ability to co-op with a friend.

This new entry is an homage to those that came before

MechKnight Chronicles to Enter the Brawler Fray

One of the more classic forms of co-op games is the brawler/beat-em-up genre. From Streets of Rage to the up-and-coming Dragon's Crown, we all enjoy a solid co-op brawler from time to time. The developers at newly formed Dinosaur share that sentiment are currently developing their first game, MechKnight Chronicles. We only have a little information at this time about the game, but so far, it's looking very promising. Inspirations for the title read like a greatest hits of the brawler and they're currently working to ensure the game has 4-player online, local, and, ideally, LAN, co-op.
