Spareware's biggest draw within the varied realm of top-down shooters is that players will be able to customize their own shooting robot by choosing what type of weapons and abilities to use. Players will also find a fair amount of replay value as the levels themselves are procedurally generated, ensuring a new challenge each time. In fact, that challenge, along with the co-op aspects, were at the forefront of the developer's mind.

Create Worlds of Fantasy in Portal KnightsJason Love

Outside of the PR announcement about the game, not too much else is known about the game. It's hard not to draw parallels between games like MinecraftStarbound, or Terraria based on what's been revealed thus far. Considering 505 is the publisher behind Terraria, those comparisons are undoubtedly apt.

While the game's campaign is single-player only, there's a separate game mode that allows up to four local players to team up and solve the environmental puzzles. Players can choose from four different fruits/veggies - Kiwi, Cherry, Coconut, and Carrot - that have their own unique abilities and put those skills to use across the title's 200 levels.

The Resistance Mode will allow up to four players to form a resistance cell in Philadelphia and engage in guerilla warfare against the entrenched Korean People's Army. Each player will be able to customize their fighter, unlock skills, choose their loadout, and earn new upgrades as they play through the mode's 12 missions.

The setup here is that you and your squad of mercenaries (which can be controlled by up to three of your friends) are sent through a wormhole to gather new tech for your employer. As is the nature of these sorts of ventures, you get trapped on the other side and left on your own to explore the new galaxy and survive.

Despite the announcement trailer being a little cringe inducing with some cliched "game speak," the action does look to be promising. You'll be able to team up with a couple other players, locally or online, to take down the rogue robots. So queue the dubstep music (apparently you have no other choice), and check out the video.

Unlike most golf games, the focus of Dangerous Golf isn't trying to get a hole-in-one or the best score under par; it's to smash up as much stuff as possible one your way to the hole. As the game's website puts it:

The action of the game sounds a bit more like that found in the popular Dark Souls series of games than anything in similar titles. As the developer puts it:

While the title has been in the Steam Early Access program for some time now, Assault Android Cactus will see a full release some time this summer on Playstation 4, PS Vita, and the Wii U. The developers of the game, indie developer Witch Beam, stated that they were inspired by "classic arcade shoot 'em ups" and an art style evocative of the "colorful visuals of the Dreamcast era". Looking at the game in action, I'd say they hit those targets.

We don't have a lot of details about the game at this point, other than the gameplay teaser shows two people checking out a pretty run-down looking castle/villa at night when suddenly, hey, that's a gigantic tornado of fire and death! We should totally go inside this creepy place! Nothing bad can happen here.

Here's the breakdown of everything being done for this edition:

In the announcement trailer, one of the shots appears to be a now much decayed Anor Londo, followed by a decayed and barren Drangleic Castle. These were the seats of power for the two monarchs of the previous titles and while Dark Souls 2 took place in a different location and time from the events of the first game, there were links between them found throughout the world (usually in item descriptions). Perhaps this third entry will finally bridge the gap and make clear what happened. Some places also appear to be stating that this will be the final entry in the Souls series.

I am cautiously optimistic about this news. Streum On Studio's previous title, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, an FPS that did some kind of cool things with its mechanics. Applying some of the insanity underlying everything in E.Y.E. to a game where you're a walking tank serving an immortal emperor that's little more than a decaying corpse on a throne as you clear out a spaceship of creatures whose sole purpose is to devour genetic material... there's hope.
