X-Morph: Defense Co-op ReviewMatthew Squaire

Trying to pick a new game to play can be tricky, especially in the well-worn fields of tower defense and twin-stick shooters. Even though it may not hold any new ideas of its own for either genre, X-Morph: Defense does tower defense and twin-stick shooting almost perfectly in every single way....

A quick aside to give a big kudos to Ubisoft for their commitment to supporting their titles over the long-haul. These days, if a title isn't a big hit in the first month, it feels like it's quickly abandoned or given minimal updates/support. Not Ubisoft. They release a game and they say, "we're seeing this through to the bitter end," and it's worked out well for them (see: Rainbow 6 Siege's eSports community).

There are hundreds of games now that fall into the “survival game” genre, but in my opinion, very few pack the narrative “oomph” to push them into something engaging (I can only collect 10 sticks to build an axe so many times). This is where I think State of Decay 2 sets itself apart. It’s an extremely focused survival...

While the shooting of undead hordes and other beasties isn't anything too new, there are a few interesting tidbits shown off in the video below. For starters, the gold and loot you collect during a level can be spent later to unlock new weapons to use. Additionally, different weapons will have different slots that can be used to power-up your arsenal so your chosen weapon does more damage or shoots ice bullets. There are also relics you can acquire behind special, hidden puzzle doors you'll have to work together to solve. These relics grant you and your buddies access to new special powers via the mystical amulet. Gotta say, looking forward to this game more and more!

I recently had the chance to try out the Spearhead VR Gaming Headphones, which were graciously sent over by the folks at 1MORE.  While the Chinese company is primarily known for producing a range of excellent (and budget friendly) in-ear headphones, the Spearhead line marks their first attempt at catering to the gaming market.  Having now...

Details on this are pretty scarce for the time being; somewhat understandable as it sounds like Bethesda is focusing more on ensuring that they have a stable game that runs on launch day. The discussion of private servers (and modding) begins around the 9:00 minute mark in the video below, but be forewarned that it's not a lengthy discussion. Todd does not mention if those private servers will allow you to invite just your friends into the game (though, we certainly hope you could) so you can ensure you have a strictly cooperative experience and avoid any PvP. It's worth noting that Todd also states in the same interview (starting around the 6:55 minute mark) that they're still balancing that aspect as they "don't want it to be grief-y in any way."

The "Killing Floor 2 - Summer Sideshow: Treacherous Skies Update" (which, for sanity's sake, will henceforth be referred to as "the update") is first and foremost adding a new map to the collection: Airship.  In it, players are working together to help Lockhart reach his home island by "completing a series of increasingly challenging objectives", punctuated by blasting waves of zeds into smithereens.  A new community map, called Endless Lockdown, has been added as well.

Based on PC Gamer's hands-on impressions of the mode from the E3 show floor, Tandem Bike is possibly going to end some friendships. One of the major draws to the Trials games is that feeling that it's your fault that you biffed that landing and have to start over; you just didn't get the right rotation, or you didn't brake soon enough. That handy "restart level" button drops you back in immediately so you can instantly try again, but you're most likely "on tilt" and you're gonna make a new mistake that frustrates you further and increases that feeling of "I will finish this level OR SO HELP ME!!!!"

While it's disappointing that the campaign is restricted to single-player only, there's still a lot of opportunities to enjoy some cooperative gameplay and fight the forces of Chaos with your friends. In fact, outside of those campaign missions that also double as a tutorial for all the different features and systems in Inquisitor - Martyr, all other missions can be completed with up to three other players online. This includes the custom missions you can create using "Uther's Tarot" (though it's worth noting all players need to have enough FATE [in-game currency] to to join), and the special assignment missions that are multi-step with choices to make along the way (only the host player can make choices, but they can narrate and let others vote on what to do). Players also have three different classes - Crusader, Assassin, and Psyker - from which to choose, and different specializations (ranged or melee) within those classes.

Last December, during the 2017 Game Awards, we got a two-minute trailer that showed off some of the horrors that await the team of explorers. In his hands-on impressions (and in the footage below), Christopher details how stealth is an important part to GTFO as it helps to keep the horrors at bay:

Online play isn't the only new feature, though. There are new maps, new ways the stages will change and impede your cooking attempts, new recipes, more chefs from which to choose, and the ability to now throw things (which very much sounds like a mixed bag of fun). All-in-all, it's more Overcooked, which I'm 100% good with.
