While the more recent Star Wars Battlefront II saw a revisioning in 2017 by EA (which our Nick Puleo gave a Co-Op score of 2 out of 5 here) the original included a number of timeless modes that were a blast in Co-Op. Ranging from Galactic Conquest to Hero-only fights as well as wonderful classes from Droidekas to Jetpack Clone troopers, seeing this classic game come back to life means the Force (as well as understanding what their users want) is strong in Microsoft.

Attack on Titan 2 Co-Op ReviewPaul Acevedo

Koei Tecmo’s first Attack on Titan game was a surprisingly great adaptation of the hit anime and manga series, with fast-paced and unique gameplay and better than average online co-op. Less than two years later, Attack on Titan 2 has arrived on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Steam. The sequel features another strong campaign and several...

Perhaps, for whatever reason, you're not quite as convinced.  No worries!  Check out these two new videos from KOEI and see how you feel afterward.  There's over an hour of footage between the two, so if you fully watch both and are still feeling ambivalent... well, no one can say you didn't give it the ol' college try.

Based on the announcement from the official website, each platform will still support co-op in the campaign (2 local players max) and the "Battle Mode," though the number of couch co-op players supported for the latter varies. The Switch does a max of 4, as will the PlayStation 4, but the PC and Xbox One versions will go as high as 8. It's worth noting, though, that if you fill all player slots in the "Battle Mode" with human players, then you're in PvP territory instead of human vs. A.I. bot "comp stomping." It does not appear the PC, Xbox One, or PS4 versions will support LAN play, either.

PlayStation PLUS games are available all month long, so as soon as Sony releases them (which they should have done by now), they will be up for the remainder of the month. In the meantime, if you want to read our thoughts on Knack, you can find those here. Unfortunately, it only earned a 2 out of 5 both overall and for Co-Op specifically.

The main idea behind the game is that you construct a deck comprised of things like characters, equipment, and beneficial effects in order to guide three heroes through a preconstructed encounter deck. In other words, it's you vs a deck that plays itself. When playing with a buddy, each player constructs their own deck and chooses their own set of heroes. The game encourages table talk between allies so they can best plan out their strategy, and basically draws the line at having the players show one another their cards (in more formal tournament settings; when playing at home with a friend, anything goes!) There are a variety of encounters to play through, and more have been added over time via card packs.

What modes support co-op in Splatoon 2? How many players can play Splatoon 2 via system link or LAN? How many players can play Splatoon 2 online? How many players are supported in combo co-op? What is the goal of Salmon Run? Kill bosses, get eggs; sounds easy! Where's the challenge? So what do you get for winning? That's a lot to take in, can you summarize? How do I set up a match of Salmon Run with my friends? Is the Nintendo Switch Online app required? Are four players required to play Salmon Run?

LBP3 players can now purchase costumes for Shredder, Rocksteady, Krang (Big Toggle), Krang (Little Toggle), Bebop, or the common Foot Soldier. These character costumes can either be purchased individually (for $1.99) or all together with the "TMNT Villains Pack" (for $5.99). Of course, if your tastes run more towards the hero side of things, you can still pick up Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, or Master Splinter costumes, which were released last fall.

The main hook to "Salmon Run" is that in addition to fending off waves of enemies, called "Salmonids," you and your teammates will also need to collect a number of "Golden Eggs," which drop from bigger foes, within a set time limit. Even after you collect all the eggs, however, you still have to survive the remainder of the wave. The mode also has a difficulty setting that goes from 5% (easiest) to 100% (hardest). Even on the easiest difficulty, you'll need to work with your teammates to call out bosses and incoming threats.
