If you're not familiar with the game, it's an adaptation of the 1979 film where a New York street gang is framed for the murder of a prominent rival gang leader and they must make it back to their home turf before rival gangs end them. While there are few elements, like character progression, robbing citizens, and taking on mission, that have become the hallmarks of Rockstar games, the core combat is very similar to any modern beat 'em up. In its transition to the PlayStation 4, the title has received a "full 1080p up-rendering" and some new features have been added, like Trophies, Shareplay, and Remote play.

Both Marvel Ultimate Alliance Titles May Be Coming to PS4 and Xbox OneJason Love

While the ratings do point to a potential release of the games on the consoles, they do not indicate how. It's quite possible that on the Xbox One, all three would be part of the Backwards Compatibility program, which just recently saw the addition of Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead. PlayStation 4 has its PlayStation Now program that lets you play select Playstation 3 titles on either a per-game basis or via a regular subscription, and it has also started releasing certain Playstation 2 games for direct purchase. Then again, and this is my hope, they could be remakes with some visual enhancements. I remember playing through a significant portion of both Ultimate Alliance games with my brother-in-law and having a great time, so I would love to see those make a return.

The upcoming beta test for Battlefront is exciting if nothing else but for the chance to get our grubby mitts on the latest in blaster technology.  However, EA's recent community post divulged a few more details on it and just so happened to mention that one of their co-op Missions would be available to players in both locally and online.  Though it's obviously based on a desire to test hardware and network performance, it's exciting to see that the co-op aspect of Battlefront is being given just as much credence as its older, competitive sibling.

In Battlefront's Survival Missions, you and a pal are stuck in a tough situation. Fifteen waves of Storm Troopers and AT-STs are out to get those two annoying rebels in some of the most familiar Star Wars locales. The trailer only showed two rebels teaming up to blast stormtroopers and waste AT-STs, but let's hope we'll be able to bring a cadre of our best buds to hold out against Battlefront's horde mode. After all, spending a hundred troopers, a bunch of ground vehicles, and a dang star destroyer trying to get two rebels seems like kind an cost/reward nightmare.

In early April 2013, Harmonix announced the final Rock Band DLC pack that brought to an end over 275 weeks of continuous content updates. The Rock Band Network rose to allow artists to make their content available to plastic instrument players. In all, over 2,100 songs were released on the service, matching a roughly equal number of tracks released by the Harmonix team.

Battlefront II was brought to us by the now closed Pandemic Studios, and published by LucasArts, which was also shuttered after Disney purchased all things Star Wars last year. Many of the games utilizing GameSpy were being migrated to Steamworks to keep the multiplayer element running. Disney figured a nine year old game was not worth retooling, and have resigned to shutting down the online servers.

Released over four years ago, and far from a smashing success, it's unsurprising that Microsoft has decided to let this one slip from their purchasable titles list. Despite its many flaws, however (you can read about it all in our Co-op Review), it's still always sad to see a co-op title depart.

Like so many other games these days online play eventually disappears into the Matrix - forever lost to gamers   forever.  Never again will you be able to walk those hallowed halls with your mates in online co-op.  On the 10th anniversary of the SOCOM franchise, Sony is shutting down the servers for several of their games, including SOCOM: Combined Assault and SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 - both the co-op titles.

A typical conversation between Ubisoft and Co-Optimus goes like this; "What do you want?" - Information. "Who is Rainbow 1?" - you are Rainbow 6.  "Co-Optimus is not a number, we are free men!" We may consider ourselves free and not Prisoners, but we would still like more information on the upcoming Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots and some artwork if you please?  Ubisoft have duly obliged.

Earlier this month, out of nowhere, a long-lost PlayStation 2 game that never reached the end of its development appeared - a third-person shooter based on the Gremlins franchise. Someone must have pulled the shades before the game could be presented to the public.

This new video of Rage offers over five minutes of FPS gameplay.  The protagonist is pitted against the Shrouded, one of the many hostile factions in the post-apocalyptic shooter. We get to see some of the driving elements, as well as a few weapons and gadgets.  Did I say gadgets?  I meant death turrets and mechanical spider monsters.  Check out the video, you'll see.   We know that there is a co-op mode called Legends of the Wasteland, which allows two players to play through stories overheard during the single player game.  We don't know exactly how the co-op mode will work, but we will bring you more information as it becomes available.
