The entire presentation is 42 minutes long, and while they talk a lot about the overall features, there's really not any discussion of the co-op here. However, if you're interested in just knowing more about Monster Hunter: World, then there are plenty of goodies. You can see the full intro of the game starting around the 7:35 mark, the character creator in action around 9:45, a little discussion of some of the NPCs you'll encounter around 20:00, and jumping into action and showing off the new Exploration Mode around 23:00. After that, it's a whole lot of monster slaying/hunting.

Free Weekend for Overwatch on All PlatformsJason Love

The biggest news from the world of Overwatch lately was the addition of a new playable character, Doomfist. Within the lore/world of Overwatch, Doomfist leads the evil organization Talon. Within the game, Doomfist is a melee-focused character that utilizes special moves that, in some ways, are reminiscent of a fighting game character (e.g., his "Rising Uppercut") and are most effective when chained together to take out your foes.

In all fairness, it's Nick's fault that I got searched and caused everyone to get mad. If had just left the dead body alone, then that one Magister wouldn't have gotten upset and it would have been perfectly fine that I stole a book!

The fall releases just keep coming, folks. Road Redemption, a spiritual successor to the popular Road Rash games of the early/mid-90s, will be leaving Early Access on Steam and making its full debut on October 4. Grab some friends, and get ready to ride! Road Redemption supports four player local co-op throughout the camp...

Looking back, this move probably seemed inevitable given Nintendo's current indie infatuation and Lovers' potential synergy with the console, but let's just take a moment and celebrate the fact that it's becoming a reality.  I'll give you all some time to yourselves.

So, instead of maintaining your daily regimen of thumb curls and finger yoga, why don't you prepare for the game by reveling in the aspects that won't make you rage-crush your sixty dollar controller?  The folks at Studio MDHR just released a teaser video showing off some behind-the-scenes footage of soundtrack production.  Hope you like brass.

One quick note about this FAQ, while it was written with exposure to only the PC version of the game (as the console versions are forthcoming), we're assuming many of the features/mechanics will apply to consoles as well. If anything is different on the consoles once those versions are released, we'll update this with the appropriate information.

After playing several hours of Dauntless Early Access (both during the Founder’s Alpha and the Closed Beta), I wanted to share some of my preliminary impressions of the game for those who have not invested in Founder’s Packs. It’s important to stress that since the game is still in Closed Beta, this is not a review, and I fully ex...

In addition to all that, Capcom revealed two special editions of the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition "includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter." The Collector's Edition includes all those bonus goodies, swaps the digital edition for a physical copy, a 5" (or 125 mm) Nergigante figure, a download code for a special 10-track soundtrack from the game, and a 32 page hardcover artbook. Pre-orders for these items have not yet gone live, but the Digital Deluxe will retail for $69.99 while the Collector's will go for $149.99. Pre-ordering any version of the game will net you a code for Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman, which offer improved starting defense and offense stat boosts for the hunter as well as a useful gathering skill. It's worth noting, though, that the bonus digital items you get in the Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition and the pre-order bonus items will all be made available for purchase separately at some point after the game's release.

Detailed through a post on the PlayStation Blog, Ilija says that comparisons between RAID and Starbreeze's other well-known co-op shooter are fair; that is the DNA of this game. However, there's more to RAID than players are likely to find in PAYDAY or its sequel.

In a new post that went up a few days ago, the developer stated that there will be a few new additions to the co-op in the form of new "kits" (i.e., playable characters in the mode) and a new assault rifle (the Sovoa), as well as new limited time APEX missions every weekend. These updates will roll out over the course of the next couple months and there will be a special N7 Celebration event in November. However, the post also states that while there may be some scattering of updates to address quality-of-life reports from players, aside from that "there are no planned patches." In other words, this may be it for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

In some ways, timing is everything when it comes to video game releases. Battleborn arrived on the scene just a few weeks prior to Blizzard's Overwatch, which ended up being a far more popular entry in the realm of colorful team-based shooters. Gearbox and publisher 2K tried to build up a dedicated fan-base for the title through a series of updates, DLC offerings, new characters, and, eventually, making it free-to-play, and while it found some traction out there, it seems like it wasn't enough to keep members of the development team on-board. Per Randy, it sounds like pretty much everyone at Gearbox is now involved on "a highly anticipated project," which is likely Borderlands 3.

The one aspect of this particular Zombie Mode that may have some promise is the studio's background (the two founders previously worked at Visceral Games on the first Dead Space title) in horror games. Jon mentions that "our goal was to make this the most terrifying Zombies experience we’ve ever created." There wasn't a whole lot of elaboration on that, but I suppose that will be one of those things players will have to see and judge for themselves once the title is out at the beginning of November.
