I recently had the chance to try out the Spearhead VR Gaming Headphones, which were graciously sent over by the folks at 1MORE.  While the Chinese company is primarily known for producing a range of excellent (and budget friendly) in-ear headphones, the Spearhead line marks their first attempt at catering to the gaming market.  Having now...

While it's disappointing that the campaign is restricted to single-player only, there's still a lot of opportunities to enjoy some cooperative gameplay and fight the forces of Chaos with your friends. In fact, outside of those campaign missions that also double as a tutorial for all the different features and systems in Inquisitor - Martyr, all other missions can be completed with up to three other players online. This includes the custom missions you can create using "Uther's Tarot" (though it's worth noting all players need to have enough FATE [in-game currency] to to join), and the special assignment missions that are multi-step with choices to make along the way (only the host player can make choices, but they can narrate and let others vote on what to do). Players also have three different classes - Crusader, Assassin, and Psyker - from which to choose, and different specializations (ranged or melee) within those classes.

Earthfall will see a full release on July 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.  It's been in Steam's Early Access program for some time, though, so it's not necessarily an unknown quantity.  While Steam's user rating system is notably fickle and subject to change, the game has currently garnered a "Mostly Positive" rating on the platform, which isn't easy for an Early Access title.

As expected, there are hordes of zombies to slay with your friends - but perhaps what wasn't expected - is the more tactical approach to killing them versus something like Left 4 Dead, where things are a bit more arcade like. Watch the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think.

Two player couch and online co-op is confirmed so far, but things are still pretty early. Here's a handful of screens and two videos that Microsoft have released. Be sure to check out all of our E3 2018 coverage over the coming week right here.

The first time we got a glimpse of Anthem was at last year's E3. The announcement/reveal of the title was an important moment for BioWare after everything it had gone through the past few months with Mass Effect: Andromeda. What was teased then certainly sounded promising, and it was hard not to draw some comparisons between it Destiny. Since then, however, things have been relatively quiet.

The development team wanted to shift the focus a little bit this time around for Unravel Two. Where the first game involved controlling the anthropomorphic Yarny as it revisits the memories of its owner's life and the love that connected them all, the second game focuses on the journey and bond that forms when two people set out on an adventure together. Here's how Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood, described it during the presentation:

Unfortunately, The Behemoth decided that the game has finally reached an age where they can start sunsetting a few of the more costly/time-consuming features.  The first of these is the ability to share created levels online.  Come June 25th, players will lose access to playlists and one-off community levels.  You can still use the game's Level Editor feature locally, but the game's marketplace of bespoke user creations will be gone.

The title will support online co-op for up to four players, so you and your buddies can all take a bus and drive around the city. Try your best not to run into each other or play chicken, though, ok? People are depending on you to safely take them from one location to another. Bus Simulator 18 will also launch with mod and Steam Workshop support, so you can expect some rather interesting community developed add-ons to spice things up a bit.
