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.

Just one more week until you can enjoy Bone Spears, Blood Golems, and all the skeletons you can muster, provided you own the Reaper of Souls expansion on the PC or Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One (sorry PS3 and 360). This new add-on content finally has a price, too: $14.99. However, it's not just the Necromancer class you'll get with that, you also get the following:

Nex Machina is the next twin-stick shooter from developer Housemarque. Rather than a solo effort, they’ve teamed up with Eugene Jarvis, the developer behind classic game Robotron 2084. Housemarque’s pedigree of arcade action shooters includes the likes of Super Stardust, Dead Nation, and Resogun - bringing a powerhouse of old and new ga...

After going hands-on with Dauntless at PAX East 2017, I've been keeping an eye on the on this monster-hunting, "unapologetically co-op" game. This week, developer Phoenix Labs announced a date to a special Founder's Alpha: August 18th. Founders Packs were announced back in April, with three available tiers: S...

It plays a bit like an Action/RPG in the same vein as Diablo 3, but with a limited roster of 14 DOTA 2 characters to use. You'll build a party of four, head out into a large map, and take on various quests with progress saved at various checkpoints. Players have limited lives which can be augmented by reaching a checkpoint.

The entire campaign can be played with up to four buddies online with each player being able to gain experience and level up their Sam as they see fit. Once you've kicked some alien butt through all manner of pyramids, you can grab even more friends to tackle the Survival mode, which supports up to 12 players total.

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.

The expansion, titled "Awakening the Nightmare," will shift the campaign over to Atriox and his Banished forces as they fight off everybody's favorite Halo enemy: the Flood. From an overall story perspective, these events take place a few months after the conclusion of the main campaign as the Banished are now desperate to take control of the Ark. I get that desperate times call for desperate measures, but unleashing some zombie plants doesn't seem all that smart.

While the Co-Optimus crew wasn't able to make it to E3 this year to check out all the new and exciting games for ourselves, there are plenty of folks from other outlets that are sharing their impressions from the little bits they're allowed to play. In the case of A Way Out, it sounds like most folks are presented with a short segment in which the two main characters (Leo and Vincent) must rob a gas station. The way they go about this, i.e., who they talk to in the gas station, what kind of distraction they make, do they go all out or try to be more subtle, is unique to each one for each co-op pair gets to talk and decide for themselves how they want to do it, and then make adjustments on the fly when that goes wrong. Mike Williams from USGamer, James Davenport and Samuel Roberts from PC Gamer, and Nick Robinson from Polygon all got their hands on it and, in their own way, all described something that I haven't seen much of in co-op games of late: a story that's defined by the players.

Granted, huddling around a computer screen isn't exactly the ideal way to couch co-op something, but as senior programmer Stephen Glindmeyer points out, our modern 1080p screens are way better than those CRT TVs of the past. "When you get a bunch of friends together, it’s nice to be able to play a modern game without having to buy 4 copies and 4 gaming PC’s.  With modern 1080p monitors, each quadrant of a 4 player splitscreen actually has 7x as many pixels as the entire screen in Mario Kart 64 or Goldeneye!"

The Ultimate Edition of NPLUSPLUS will feature all of the updates that have found their way to the PC version since the original 2015 launch. Unfortunately, the updates are not available on the PlayStation 4 yet, but are set to come soon. In an email to Eurogamer, Metanet’s Mare Shepard said “The Xbox One version is going to launch with all the new Ultimate stuff…” going on to elaborate, she said that this means “All the new levels, headbands, secrets and Hardcore game mode."
