Epic Loon is set from the perspective of a person watching movies, while the player controls aliens who have invaded the movies as their actions change the film. There are four playable characters (Cap, Gro, Tri and Bou) but unfortunately we only catch a brief glimpse of them in the interview video below. Macrales Studio YouTube channel features both the videos below, where highlights from the former come in the form of the game’s platforms being revealed (PC, X1, PS4, and, if possible, Switch) and the estimated release date (2018 with console ports to follow before Q2 of 2018).

Hunt the Predator in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon WildlandsJason Love

This special challenge is a separate mission you take on outside of the main story campaign. It can be taken on alone or with your usual co-op crew, but regardless, be prepared. The Predator can cloak, use its Plasma Cannon and Smart Disc, and can freely run around the treetops in order to better get the drop on you. Senior producer Nouredine Abboud even hints that the nuclear option is always on the table. Should you come out on top in this encounter, however, then you'll be rewarded with the Predator's Wrist Blades and helmet, which allows you to turn on that iconic Predator heat vision.

In all seriousness, good on THQ Nordic for actively working to preserve video games and bring them into a modern era. Titan Quest was my go-to action-RPG for the longest time and every so often I'd get a hankering to play it again. THQ Nordic sated that feeling when they released the Anniversary Edition last year, and then weirdly intensified it with the DLC release last month. Now, I'm waiting to play it again until it's out on the console, a phrase I never thought I'd say about it.

Interestingly, while the title will be removed from Steam, Xbox Marketplace, and PlayStation Store, the game itself will still be playable. Per the announcement on the official website, the servers will remain up "indefinitely after December 31, 2017 so you can continue your adventure throughout the Forgotten Realms."

The game will feature four player online co-op throughout the main campaign. Each player will assume the role of one of four playable characters (the first, Aidan, is shown off in the new trailer) and each one will have his/her own unique abilities and progression via a skill tree. In a way, this doesn't sound too dissimilar to the different classes (Mastermind, Enforcer, Ghost, Technician, and Fugitive) from PAYDAY 2.

While there may be some shared ideology between the two titles, there's a definite gulf of difference between Nine Parchments and Magicka. The latter was more focused on having players memorize certain key/button combinations in order to make use of their spells and really leaned hard into the chaos that comes with friendly-fire. Nine Parchments, on the other hand, feels more like a twin-stick action RPG. There are a ton of unlockables in the form of purely cosmetic hats and game-affecting staves, and each of the nine playable characters (all but two have to be unlocked) offers something a little different.

In 2016, a mobile shoot ‘em up called Sky Force Anniversary made its way to consoles. Despite the humble origins, it proved to be a surprisingly robust and addictive game. Now Infinite Dreams has released the sequel Sky Force Reloaded on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. With two-player local co-op and loads of new content, Reloaded just mi...

Based on what's said in the trailer (see below), it sounds like this trial will provide your co-op buddy of choice the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign with you online; no time limit or "play to certain point." When the title was debuted at this year's E3, Josef talked about how the entire thing has been designed to be a co-op experience that requires a second person to play it, ideally on the couch. If you don't have a local co-op buddy, then the free trial will provide an avenue for you to still enjoy it. One person buys the game, and your buddy can download the co-op trial to play through it with you. That's it.

It’s worth noting that the demo I played had no co-op to it, it was strictly a 10-minute single-player affair. There were two playable characters (the Empire soldier, Markus, or the Waywatcher, Kerillian) and none of the progression or loot systems were available to try or even peruse. Despite this, there were a few things of note that made me more intrigued in this game; specifically, the way the two characters felt different from one another, and the possibilities that the career paths will present for each hero.

There isn't much yet about the game, other than a trailer to set the tone and a few tidbits about co-op gameplay that looks to mix action with strategy.

The new content may be the equivalent of, say, "The Taken King" for the original Destiny, but what's added is good and needed. As Bungie said in their blog post last week, there are those folks that want to be able to hop into the game as they please and find something fun to do. The "Infinite Forest" may play into this by introducing "Heroic Adventures," which are tougher variants of the three Adventures that become available after completing the story. These variants include adding modifiers, like "Prism" that rotates through the different elements (Sol, Arc, Void) and increases the damage of whichever is selected and decreases the damage of the others. While the Adventures end in a section that is either the past, present, or future of Mercury, the path to get there is slightly randomized and constructed from pre-fab building blocks. It's something Bungie calls "intelligent assembly" (instead of the familiar "procedurally generated"). As this is the first week of its release, it's tough to say whether or not these Adventures will be rotated out every week, but it would offer a new/fun endgame activity for folks if they do.

The announcement arrives as Sony's PlayStation Experience looms ever closer on the horizon (it starts this Saturday, December 9). Dragon's Crown Pro will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro with a number of visual enhancements/improvements, including the ability to display at 4k resolution assuming you have a PS4 Pro and a 4k compatible TV. There's also a newly recorded soundtrack featuring a full orchestra, and the same four player co-op options (i.e., local, online, and combo) will still be supported. Best of all, if you owned the original Dragon's Crown and sent those saves to the great PS Cloud in the sky, you can pull that save back down and use with the Pro version of the game.
