We have a few co-op games coming out this week. There's an indie twin-stick shooter, an indie rogue-like, an installment of one of Capcom's fading franchises, and another zombie shooting game.
By the time this post goes up, there will be approximately four hours remaining in the Kickstarter campaign for Children of Morta, a "story-driven hack ‘n slash roguelike." When we first reached out to developer Dead Mage about their game, the inclusion of local co-op was just a stretch goal. That goal is now surpassed and we wanted...
The Binding of Isaac will soon receive a beefy update in the form of the "Afterbirth" DLC. Developer Edmund McMillen promised the community that the update will contain at least "100-200 hours" of new content.
If you follow the mobile scene, it's a sure bet you heard about BADLAND. The game was released in early 2013 and walked away with handfuls of awards from handfuls of publications. A rudimentary local co-op mode was added to the Android, Windows Phone and iOS releases, but tiny screens and multiple players equals meh. That's why BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition is so friggin' exciting: it's coming to PC and consoles!
You say potato, I say Toukiden Kiwami. This may not be the easiest game to pronounce, but it is made by the people behind the Dynasty Warrior franchise and for fans of strategic mash-em-ups that can be no bad thing. Those with long memories may remember the Vita version of the game, but as of March 27th 2015, it will also be available on PlayStation 4. A new mission trailer and pre-order info have been released to whet your appetite.
The classic 3D version of Duke Nukem seems to be fairing much better than the more recent Duke Nukem Forever. We've seen a version of Duke Nukem 3D on XBLA last generation, and we saw PC owners get the Megaton version with improved visuals and added 8 player co-op, and now its Sony system owner's turn.
Christmas has come early for us co-op gamers (at least for those of us on Sony platforms)! Playstation just announced a slick new deal focused entirely on co-op gaming, presumably to help calm your family's nerves after two hours of bickering about why your aunt brought her new boyfriend to Thanksgiving dinner. It's like, why does he even come if he doesn't even like the Bears! Also, the stuffing he brought tastes sort of like motor oil.
While you were sitting in a cubicle or staring at the back of your professor's head as she wrote some numbers or something on the whiteboard, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth was released. Grab it for PC via Steam, or turn on your Vita or PlayStation 4 "video console machine" to give it a go, with cross-save enabled, too!
If you completely forgot this game was coming out, don't worry, you're not the only one. Freedom Wars just sort of appeared this October in North America and Europe, launching its multiplayer and co-op combat gameplay just for PS Vita. With any luck, everyone will start paying attention to it now, as it looks fantastic.
It's been ten long years since we first started hacking Japanese rebels to bits in the first Samurai Warriors. Celebrating this decade of warfare in feudal Nippon is Samurai Warriors 4, out now for the PS3, PS4, and PSVita. The Warriors games are some of the most polarizing in the industry, with die-hard fans extolling their virtues and critics decrying their faults. We've already gotten one dose this year with Hyrule Warriors, but if you're itching for superhuman feats of murder and happen to limit yourself to Sony platforms, Samurai Warriors 4 is here for you.
