When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

Housemarque's Nex Machina Will Have Local Co-OpJason Love

The game is touted as being inspired by Robotron and Smash TV, the latter of which is one of the all-time favorite titles of our founder, Nick Puleo, so that's certainly promising. The former is likely due to Housemarque teaming up with Eugene Jarvis, the developer behind Robotron: 2084, for this one. It seems like an ideal pairing, considering how much Housemarque has been bringing those classic shooters into the modern age with all kind of splendid special effects.

The game features local co-op for up to four players, with AI available to fill in any available slots.  The goal of each play session is to survive consecutive nights with your anthropomorphic pals, unlocking weapons and superpowers along the way.  You'll face off against a plethora of classic baddies, like, you know, lunch ladies and Abraham Lincoln.

In Destiny, if you wanted to do the Nightfall Strikes or the Raids, and didn't have a dedicated group of friends you could call upon, then you were out of luck. Bungie has come up with a way to try and make all of that content accessible to everyone with the inclusion of in-game Clans and a feature called "Guided Games," which will match up solo players with friendly clans to complete those very activities. The example given during the event was that if you want to check out the new Raid, but don't have a group of six friends, then you could hop into a Guided Game with a group of folks from a clan that's willing to help players through. Who knows, maybe you'll all hit it off and you'll find some new friends with whom to play. I had some pretty positive experiences using things like DestinyLFG and even the forums to play through that stuff in Destiny, so this is a solution for which I'm cautiously optimistic.

Yacht Club Games announced on Monday that the local co-op patch is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii U. With the way auto-updating works these days, chances are the patch has already been applied to your version of the game. The developer even posted up a handy little Co-Op Manual to answer those important questions like "What campaigns support co-op" (only the main Shovel Knight campaign) and "Will co-op come to more campaign in the future?" (not at this time). Unfortunately, this local co-op functionality is only supported on the console/PC versions and it is not available for the 3DS or Vita editions.

Warner Bros and TT Games announced the new LEGO title earlier this week and even have a little teaser/trailer that lets you know that the real video to tease the game will be revealed at a later point in time (next Tuesday, to be exact). This time around, you'll be facing off against Kang the Conqueror as he attempts to muck about with both time and space. There's a new four player multiplayer/competitive battle mode that's being added and an open hub world area known as "Chronopolis." It's unclear if that four player capability will transfer over into the co-op side of things for the campaign, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it.

Capcom has shared a couple videos with us to show off how the past 5 years have been treating Resident Evil: Revelations, and I've got to admit, it's looking pretty decent.  The two videos below combine for about 8 minutes of gameplay footage, so if you're just dying to see what the game will be throwing at you (and somehow didn't see it over the past five years), now's a great chance to.

The big hook to Unit 4, other than the classic pixel platformer look and feel, is that up to four players can team up locally to save the day. Each player can choose one of four different playable characters (Agility, Strength, Engineering, or Mysticism), each of which has their own abilities. Working together you'll face six bosses across 15 different levels in order to win the day (hooray!)

The last time we saw Piece of Cake's stealth action game was at this year's PAX East when Tally got hands-on with it for a bit. Since then, the developer kicked off a closed beta that was originally slated to end this week before the Early Access period on Steam began. However, in a blog post yesterday, the developer stated that they needed a little more time to better stabilize the online portion of the game, and they're now making it an open beta, which you can sign-up for to join.

In a blog post last week, the developer went detailed what they now have planned for the shooter over the next few months. Rather than move forward with releasing the next DLC package, which was slated to add two new operators and a new map based around Hong Kong, they are pushing everything back so they can instead spend this time improving the stability of their servers, propping up a test server to try out new features before they go live, and address bugs reported by the community. They're calling it "Operation Health."

Demon's has been out for some time on PC, but has only just launched on console and this means we get an all new trailer than shows off some of the up to four player local co-op that the game has:

The game and its four player online co-op has been out for a while on PC, but as we all know, the journey of porting a game is a long and treacherous one.  Soon enough, you and three friends can engage in a little open world/loot shooter/hack-and-slash action together on the console of your choice.

In the main "Free-For-All" mode, players must compete against one another to get the most points possible by linking up matching colored blocks to pull off big combos. Before you get those points, though, you have to wait a few seconds before it locks in. During that time, other players can steal away your combo by linking up new block with it.
