A recent update to the Double Dragon IV site revealed tons of new details about the game. Although we still don’t know much about the actual story, the developers have revealed its place in the series timeline. As it turns out, the order of the previous games is as follows: Double Dragon>Double Dragon III>Double Dragon II. Thus Double Dragon IV directly follows the conclusion of Double Dragon II, which is appropriate since the new game uses many sprites from part II.

Sea of Thieves Explains Co-Op PirateeringNick Puleo

Sailing the ship requires at least three players, with one driving, one navigating using the map, and one navigating using the crow's nest looking out for dangerous objects in the ocean.

At the game's core is a multi-class system including Assault, Sniper, Heavy, and Engineer. You'll complete missions to acquire better gear and augment your units' abilities, carrying them from mission to mission.

The actual gameplay of Red Rope revolves around two characters, played by a solo player or two local co-op humans, who are physically tied together. Without this link they wouldn't be able to survive the labyrinth in which they're trapped, but staying this close together also means they'll face new types of challenges. Ever tried making breakfast when you're tied to someone? Actually, don't answer that. We'll keep your personal life out of this.

Meet Dante, Malice, and Elliot, three adventurous folk with chips on their shoulders and prices on their heads. These outlaws are wanted dead and alive, so you can imagine their lives are a bit complex at the moment. You'll control these three "heroes" in Grave Danger, each of whom has unique abilities used to traverse and manipulate the world. Dante can wall climb and fire a pistol, for example, while Elliot double jumps and blasts wizard shots and Malice tosses a scythe and floats in mid-air. Use their skills to solve puzzles in each stage so everyone can reach the exit safe and sound.

We Need to Go Deeper is all about exploration. Dangerous, deadly exploration. As you putter around the sea, co-op players work roles in the ship to make repairs, attack foes that invade your submersible, load torpedoes, reroute power to the shields, and just generally try not to drown. You'll also don breathing helmets and head out to the ocean floor on foot, provided you don't get eaten by, you know, death stuff. It seems like everything's trying to kill you down here, but when the call of adventure strikes, who are we to turn it down?

I felt that the third title while intriguing in its own way and better about skill trees/progression as a whole compared to the previous titles, had its flaws as well. Notably, not being able to repeat any of the campaign and the weird difficulty spikes in the "Scenarios." Still, there are few enough aRPGs on consoles these days and it's different enough from Diablo to make it worthwhile.

Happy New Year! The beginning of 2017 means another year of MMO Co-Opportunities. This month we explore two huge updates coming to Final Fantasy XIV and Wildstar as well as the sad announcement of EverQuest Landmark shutting down....

In addition to Unity, coughing up $15 will net you the recent Assassin's Creed Chronicles titles that shifted to a platformer presentation instead of the usual third-person action, as well as the original Assassin's Creed, the far better Assassin's Creed II, the "so close, yet so far" but co-op friendly Assassin's Creed III, and the underrated (IMO) Assassin's Creed Liberation, which was a Vita exclusive title initially. Sadly, Assassin's Creed IV (my personal favorite because pirates) is missing from this, but that's still a lot of AC to get for that price.

With the "Winter Wonderland" event drawn to a close, fans of Blizzard's team-based shooter need something to occupy them until the next themed event. I'm guessing it'll be Valentine's related. Anyways, the new map is set in the Arabian Desert and features some nifty looking flying cars and, like, a scarab-boat thing? That's not in the official write-up, of course, which has this to say:

The game has been removed from all digital service platforms where it was previously available for sale. This means you can no longer find it on Steam, Xbox Marketplace, or the PlayStation Store. Boxed copies are still available via places like Amazon, so you can get it there if you're looking to pick it up. If you have previously purchased the game digitally, don't worry, you can still play it and download it again.
