Prepare to Die in 4K This May in Dark Souls: RemasteredJason Love

Based on the announcement from Bandai Namco, it sounds like the online player count will be increased for Dark Souls: Remastered from three (plus one invader) to six (with who knows how many invaders). This means you and up to five of your friends can team up to take on the Capra Demon, Bell Gargoyles, and Ornstein and Smough. In addition to the base game, the remastered version will also include the "Artorias of the Abyss" DLC.

The 7v7 arcade sports title will get an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release on Friday, January 19, 2018. Much like the PC version, four player local co-op will be supported in the Arcade, Season, and Playoff modes. Each player will play together on the same team against a team controlled by the A.I. One player will be the quarterback and call the plays while the remaining players will each assume a different position on the team, such as running back, safety, wide receiver, or center guard.

Ryozo Tsujimoto, the game's producer, posted a video to the official Monster Hunter: World YouTube channel yesterday with a release window for the PC version. Unfortunately, it won't be out until sometime "Autumn 2018." That means folks who are waiting to enjoy the first "next-gen" Monster Hunter title on their suped-up computer will have to wait a while longer.

Starting around 7:00 PM EST tonight on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of Diablo 3, you'll be able to enter the portal that will take you back to the pixelated days of Diablo. Battle you way through 16 floors of the original Tristram cathedral, fight the Butcher, and bring down Diablo. If you do all that using a new, level one character, then you'll be able to get some sweet loot in the form of a Butcher pet. Of course, if you participated in the event last year, there may not be quite as many new things this time around, but it does look like there might be a different banner reward and transmogrification recipes.

As with past seasonal events, the Zeds will look distinctly holiday-ish (sans the joy and cheer), and if players can survive their red-and-green onslaught, they'll get a chance to take down the aforementioned K-man.  All this takes place on a brand new holiday map, which features a "demented Xmas soundtrack".

This difficulty is probably what's made The Escapists 2 such a success for Team 17 and Mouldy Toof Studios.  It's doing so well, in fact, that they're bringing it to everyone's favorite portable/home console hybrid, the Nintendo Switch.  Once January 11th rolls around, every would-be escapee and their mother can take a swing at breaking out of prison life.

Thanks to the game's latest update, players may join in without the constraint of needing an expensive headset, so those fists can now be slammed into actual keyboards, and the yelps... well, they'll still be yelps.  No real change there.

Similar to recent Far Cry releases, the protagonist must work closely with the local factions if they want to really stick it to the baddies.  In FC5, they'll be filling a "Resistance Meter", which unlocks more allies and (presumably) weaponry as it progresses.  What do these allies do, exactly?  Well, I bet you can guess, but check out the trailer below if you want to see them in action.

As 2017 (thankfully) draws to a close, we wanted to take a look at how Destiny 2 stands after some needed updates and the release of the first expansion. Games like these are ever-changing and shifting, but we wanted to put together our thoughts on it and try to answer the usual question that gets tossed about with this: “is it worth it?&rdqu...

Unlike the Wood Elves or Beastmen that were added to the first game, Total War: WARHAMMERthe Tomb Kings won't have their own story campaign to play. Instead, it appears that they're getting more Legendary Lords (4 instead of 2) than the other races, and within the "Eye of Vortex" campaign of Total War: WARHAMMER 2 campaign, the shambling hordes have a different goal than everyone else. The Tomb Kings care not about that giant swirling vortex and instead are focused on finding and recovering the Nine Books of Nagash. Each book grants the Tomb Kings a campaign bonus, though what those may be haven't been revealed, and all of this culminates in a battle at the Black Pyramid of Nagash. Like the rest of the races in Total War: WARHAMMER 2, that's not the only unique mechanic that the Tomb Kings will bring to the game, and full details can be found over in the Creative Assembly blog post.

I brought this up a couple times during the stream (a recap of which can be found below), but Distrust isn't like many of the survival games to which you're accustomed (such as Don't Starve or ARK). The title feels like it has more in common with board games, such as Dead of Winter or Mansions of Madness, as your primary goal is to scavenge an area for supplies and keep pushing forward, rather than gathering things to build other things. It relies heavily upon the push/pull mechanics of moving forward, and feeling like you have enough stuff to keep your three status bars (Warmth, Stamina [tiredness], and Satiety [hunger]) from dropping so low that you begin to lose health and suffer from a variety of mental affects. Those mental affects impact what you see and hear, leading to situations where you can't be sure if that food you picked up is spoiled or not, or if something in the environment actually needs to be repaired/fixed (which will waste supplies you need).
