In case you're unfamiliar with the Access programs, they're subscription-based services available on both Xbox One in the form of EA Access and PC in the form of Origin Access.  You plop down a few bucks a month (or a discounted amount for a year), and have access to a number of titles in EA's library.

Metal Slug X Now Available On Xbox OneEnoch Starnes

X, of course, is not the tenth entry in the series.  Rather, it's a rework of Metal Slug 2 released a year after the original that makes a number of core changes.  Among these are remixed music, altered enemy locations/difficulty, added weaponry, and a new announcer.  This Xbox One version of the game comes to us courtesy of the ACA NEOGEO series, which works to replicate NEOGEO classics for the modern gamer.

One of the things I've always admired about Warframe is its movement system. Sliding into a group of foes while wielding a katana and doing a sick spin that slices them into meaty bits ALWAYS. FEELS. GOOD! It's only gotten better with time, too, as Digital Extremes has tweaked the graphics, made the movement system even more fluid, and made changes to how melee combat works. One of the bigger improvements to the game has been a revamp of the whole first couple hours and the tutorial. You are eased into systems much easier than before and certain things, like how to use mods, new weapons, Warframes, and other features, are introduced through the course of all this in a gradual fashion that's not overwhelming. Honestly, if you're looking for a fun loot-grind co-op game, Warframe is in a pretty good spot right now.

Currently, you and up to three other folks can form a group called a "Wing" and head out on an adventure. If all players have the same mission, then they can all choose it from their log and complete it jointly and get individual rewards (they cannot, though, share a missions with other members of their Wing). Sometime in Q1 of next year, Frontier Development will implement new "Wing Missions," which are specific co-op goals/objectives for you to complete with friends. This news came in a 30-minute presentation during the recent "Frontier Expo," the video of which you can find below.

The free weekend is in celebration of the latest title update that added a new 4v4 PvP mode. While the reason for this weekend gaming boon may not be cooperative, we'll always take advantage of any reason to enjoy some good co-op gaming. Best of all, if you and your co-op crew are enjoying the title, then you can pick it up for 50% off until Monday, October 16 via Steam, or the following Monday (October 23) if you buy it off Uplay, the PSN store, and Microsoft Store (if you are an Xbox Live Gold member).

While a lot of those guns and goodies appear to be focused around the multiplayer part of the game, there is one nice thing for all of us co-op enthusiasts. We've talked before about how there are special bosses you can face if you complete certain (difficult) objectives throughout the course of the mode. Well during this Halloween event, you can face off against these terrible foes without having to jump through all of those hoops thanks to the Boss Battle Mode. Here's how it works:

This feels like Digital Extremes' first steps into transitioning Warframe into more of a shooter/MMO hybrid as the update brings it with some of those features most commonly associated with titles in the MMO genre (i.e., quest-givers, a social hub, non-combat activities like fishing). It's an ambitious step, as so much of the game is centered around taking on discreet missions with friends and, more-or-less, grinding away at those. With the addition of an open area where players can accept different quests, experience a full day/night cycle, interact with vendors and NPCs, and take on bigger/tougher foes (the Eidolons), there's more to see and do, which is enticing to long-time fans and newcomers alike.

Though the weather may indicate otherwise, we’re thick in the middle of fall. Fall: that mystical time of year famous for pumpkin-spiced food, horror flicks, and MMO content patches and expansions. For this issue of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at content expansions that either just launched on their corresponding live servers...

Ever since the announcement earlier this year that they would be bringing the game into the modern era, we've been waiting to hear something, anything, about the co-op mode. Heck, at the time of the announcement, we could only assume that it would have the same four player co-op that was a part of the original. While that did get confirmed, eventually, this "101" trailer is the first time we've actually seen any of it. So please enjoy all 30 seconds of it starting around the 4:41 mark.

Specifically, it'll be the ’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 (from 2 Fast 2 Furious) and ’70 Dodge Charger R/T (from The Fast and The Furious).  Each of these will cost $1.99 and come with their own sets of decals.  The Skyline will have the 2Bold, 2Cool, 2Tuff, Clean Cut, The Clutch, and Home Stretch options, and the Charger will have the Alameda Twin, Flames, Good Graces, Rally, Sinclair, and Wheelman to choose from.  You can see both in action below:

The mode itself is a new take on the familiar horde mode. Prior to dropping into the match proper, players are placed in a staging area where they can construct forts that will be used once things really get going. It's an interesting take and I'm glad to see Epic coming up with new ways to utilize the building mechanics that are at the core of this game. Here's a description of the mode from their blog post announcing it:

Overall, I am liking what CA and Sega are putting down this time around. The four races feel so different from one another - from the Skaven's "get in, get what you need, and get out" settlements to the political intrigue of the High Elves - and having a set goal/objective that you're racing towards in competition with the other factions gives you a bit more purpose in the campaign this time around. There are a couple things with the co-op that I wish were better, such as being able to get into the details of your friend's lords/cities more to help out when needed, but it's still a step up from the previous entry. Mike and I cover a lot of ground in the stream recap and talk about what's new/different, even while we don't cover a lot of ground in the game itself, which isn't too unusual in this title, to be honest.

The trailer for the game, below, boasts an astonishing 4,340 levels for you and your friends to work through, plus a ton of extra color schemes that weren't available in the original version of the game.  Given that the trailer reaches just over three minutes, I think it's fair to say that the developers are pretty proud of their work.
