Housemarque's Nex Machina dropped on PC and PlayStation 4 this week, and Nick's been enjoying his time with it thus far. If you want to get in on the robot killing arcade action with a buddy, then have we got a deal for you.
The PlayStation 4 version of Marvel Heroes Omega has been in a "closed beta" for the past few weeks, but that comes to an end tomorrow, May 18. This is to prepare for a re-launch next Tuesday, May 23, as an open beta for all. For one luck co-op fan out there, though, you can get a head start this Friday and win codes for all five Founders' Packs!
As we talked about a couple weeks ago, Ronimo Games' Awesomenauts is going free-to-play on May 24. If you purchased the game previously (or anytime in the past couple of weeks), then you've already got access to the current beta. If you haven't, then good news! We've got 12 beta keys to giveaway!
If you missed our stream last night, we checked out a bit of the closed beta currently underway for Marvel Heroes Omega on the PlayStation 4. We gave away some Founder's Pack codes during that, and today we've got some codes to access just the closed beta itself.
Guardians of Ember, the hack and slash MMORPG, is getting another big update on Steam Early Access following a successful IndieGogo Campaign. Guardians of Ember is the newest title from Runewaker, the developer behind Runes of Magic and Dragon's Prophet.
ORION: Prelude was released back in 2012 to quite negative reviews. Over the years the developers continued to garner feedback and update the game, a process we documented in our Indie-Ana Co-Op with TREK Industries. Their next game, Guardians of Orion may be following a similar path. Since release it has transformed from a twin-stick shooter to a hybrid game where gamers can choose to play from any perspective. Both games are built around cooperative play.
Lo Wang returns today on the PC in Shadow Warrior 2 and Nvidia has pushed out some new game drivers so you can get the best visual experience for the game. If you don't own the game, then not to worry as Nvidia may have you covered.
Warface has launched a brand new update for its game, with a huge piece of content called Operation Earth Shaker. The core of the content is focused around a five player co-op mission set in an underground secret lair in a volcano. Sadly, Dr. Evil is not present. There are new achievements, weapon skins, and more to unlock!
Firefly Studios continues to pump out packs of content for Stronghold Crusader 2 on PC. Each one themed as a head to head match-up between characters. We last saw (and gave away) The Emperor and The Hermit, but this time around we're looking at The Templar and the Duke. We'd love to see a co-op themed one next!
Really Slick's cave-flyer/shooter Retrobooster hit Steam last week and Terry Welsh, the game's developer generously provided us with a a few codes to giveaway here on the site. We've got five codes total to hand out, and we'll be giving you the chance to win one starting today until Monday, July 28.
If you haven't gotten in on the Destiny beta that launched yesterday, now is your chance. Courtesy of Bungie we've got a handful of codes for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in all regions to give away. But you have to be quick - they are first come first serve.
One of my favorite indie co-op games from last year, and even still today, was Can’t Strife Right Studios’ zombie shooter meets 8-bit beat ‘em up, Dead Pixels. It was a fresh take on a genre/theme of games (i.e., zombies) that is starting to wear its welcome out a bit. Between the ‘70s film grain effect, the nods and winks at various zombie games/films that came before, and the RPG elements, Dead Pixels was the kind of game that got me started on the whole indie kick in the first place. Now, the joy of killing 8-bit zombies can be shared even more with friends and family as Dead Pixels has arrived on Steam, and it has brought with it a handful of goodies.
