LBP3 players can now purchase costumes for Shredder, Rocksteady, Krang (Big Toggle), Krang (Little Toggle), Bebop, or the common Foot Soldier. These character costumes can either be purchased individually (for $1.99) or all together with the "TMNT Villains Pack" (for $5.99). Of course, if your tastes run more towards the hero side of things, you can still pick up Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, or Master Splinter costumes, which were released last fall.

A New Challenge Every Week in Killing Floor 2's Summer SideshowJason Love

These weekly challenges not only provide players with a new way to enjoy the game, but some special rewards as well. The event is currently only available for the PC version of the game, but it's coming to the PlayStation 4 version (which you can currently get for free via PS+) at a later point. More info on the event can be found on the official website.

While the September release is for consoles, PC Guardians-to-be will finally be able to take up arms on October 24th. This marks a different focus for Bungie, who had left PC players without any way to play the original Destiny. If you're so inclined, there are a number of editions you can buy as well, ranging from the Standard $59.99 version all the way up to the $249.99 Collector's Edition. Pre-ordering the game will also get you into the early access beta that's set to take place the weekend of July 18 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and sometime in August for PC.

For the (somehow) uninitiated, TBoI and its many offspring are roguelikes centered around a small, incredibly sad child and his quest to do... well, a number of things that I won't spoil for you.  To accomplish said quest, though, the player must work their way through a series of randomly generated levels and survive each segment using the game's twin-stick shooter combat.

This little emulator system will come with 21 SNES titles that may not encompass all your favorite childhood memories, but it'll be close. Personally, there's one title on the list (Secret of Mana) that stands out to me as all-time great and best of all it's co-op! Full list is below and we've marked with an asterisk those games that features local co-op.

This summer, Pokémon GO will receive a huge free summer update that is geared towards making the game more accessible and social. One of the update's big headliners is the introduction of cooperative Raid Battles. For Raid Battles, up to 20 players will be able to team up together to fight rare bosses, but they will need a raid pass to participate. Players get one free raid pass a day, with the option to purchase additional ones. If eligible to participate, players will see pokémon eggs randomly appear at gyms with count-down timers, which denote when they will hatch. This is the cue for nearby players to virtually assemble. When the counter ticks down to zero, the egg will hatch into a boss that the players have five minutes to beat. If they succeed, they'll get a chance to capture a rare pokémon (the details are unclear whether all participating players get this chance, or a limited number of them). Other Raid Battle rewards include raid-specific items such as rare candies, golden razz berries (which give you a better chance for catching wild pokémon), and technical machines (which allow trainers to teach their pokémon fast and change attacks).

Whereas The Red Solstice focused more on squad combat similar to Syndicate or Satellite ReignSolstice Chronicles: MIA opts for more of a twin-stick shooter feel. That doesn't mean Ironward has completely abandoned the class and strategy elements from their previous game, but they have tweaked things to be faster paced.

Locke and Nick checked Pit People out a few months back and came away impressed by what they saw then. Since that time, there's been an update that added daily co-op tasks, and now this one that adds even more for you and a buddy to do. While the title still doesn't have a firm release date, updates like this one push the title ever closer. The full patch notes can be found here.
