Our regular Monday night crew played a bit of the game last year when it first hit Steam Early Access and enjoyed some of the ideas/features, like trying to make a house and a garden while fighting off orcs. The limitation on players being able to go off to other worlds separate from their companions was a letdown, but it sounds like developer Keen Games have plans to address that with a future update. They also revealed that they plan on implementing splitscreen functionality to the game, though it's not clear how many players that will support and if it will also support combo co-op.

Stream Recap - Portal Knights Co-Op PlayNick Puleo

Portal Knights hit early access this week and so far, things are looking pretty solid. You can create one of three character classes and jump into a randomized world with up to three additional friends. Each level has you collecting pieces to rebuild a portal and progress to the next map. The game features bright and colorful graphics while still having a hint of those Minecraft voxels, with each world featuring a different theme like desert, mines, or lush grass.

Outside of the PR announcement about the game, not too much else is known about the game. It's hard not to draw parallels between games like MinecraftStarbound, or Terraria based on what's been revealed thus far. Considering 505 is the publisher behind Terraria, those comparisons are undoubtedly apt.

As far as co-op titles are concerned, probably the best deals in the sale are on the aforementioned MMO's and Valve titles. In the case of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, the $12 final price constitutes a historic low price by about $19 (for the relaunch of the game anyways) - a hot hot deal from an authorized retailer. While GMG doesn't sell the popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by itself, you can get that game in the Valve Complete Pack for only $20. The Pack gets you every game Valve ever made for five bucks more than you can get Counter-Strike: GO for by itself on Steam right now.

We all know by now that the Toy Pad for Dimensions will act as the main component for players to upload their LEGO creations into the game. We also know that the Toy Pad can give players the ability to have any combination of seven characters, gadgets, and/or vehicles be brought into game in a instant. However, we didn't know that it will also act as an additional game controller to enrich the gameplay! The Toy Pad will use various features, such as three RGB lights on the device, to provide both player hints and introduce multiple puzzle mechanics into the game. Our favorite killer computer, GLaDOS explains some of these features in the trailer below:
