Impressions and thoughts from the first two technical tests

MMO Co-Opportunities Volume LXXI: Guardians of Ember Preview

This month for MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be previewing Guardians of Ember, an MMO from Runewaker now in beta. Since the game isn’t released yet (and the content in the beta is very limited), we’ll be looking at the potential MMO co-opportunities I’ve found in my time with the game. Guardians of Ember (henceforth GoE...

Kickstarter stretch goal achieved...without Kickstarter

Satellite Reign is Adding 4 Player Co-Op, We Have the Developer Interview

Satellite Reign was launched on Kickstarter in late 2013, and it easily met its funding goal of $530,000 by raising over $700,000. But it never quite made it to some of the stretch goals, the biggest of which was a million dollar goal for online co-op. The game released back in August of 2015 on Steam after an early access period and so far garnered over a 1000 positive reviews, meeting expectations of both the players and developer 5 Lives.

How to Survive 2 Mixes Minecraft with Left 4 Dead, Hands on Preview

At New York Comic Con last week I went hands on with several 505 Games published titles. I rather enjoyed upcoming indie title Indivisible, which mixes side scrolling fighting with a JRPG style game. I also really dug checking out Adr1ft on the Oculus Rift, a truly unique experience for sure. But it was How to Survive 2 I was there to see for Co-Optimus; the upcoming sequel boasting 16 player server support and four player co-op.

Last month, MMO Co-Opportunities featured part 1 of a hands-on preview of the upcoming expansion for Guild Wars 2, Heart of Thorns.

Impressions from the Bandai Namco Event Summer 2015

Tales of Zestiria and Dark Souls III Preview

Last week, I headed over to the Bryant Park Hotel to attend the Bandai Namco NYC Showcase Event. There they had a ton of their upcoming releases for the next few quarters. Of course, I was interested in the titles featuring co-op, which meant I spent a lot of time talking to the representatives for Tales of Zestiria and Dark Souls III.

It's Not Just Another Zombie Game!

Dying Light Preview

Techland is certainly well versed in the zombie apocalypse, and before you write off Dying Light as ‘just another zombie game’ wait until you are finished with this dissertation. A blend of parkour, combat, and open world survival, there is an elegance to this game cocktail. Taking away the power fantasy and integrating locomotion as a priority, the sense of urgency becomes paramount in humanity’s fight for survival over the undead.

Evolve Hands-On Impressions (PAX East 2014)

My other appointment with 2K Games this year at PAX East 2014 was for Evolve, an upcoming squad-based game by Turtle Rock Studios, makers of Left 4 Dead. The game pits four Hunter players against one boss Monster player or AI (as a dev confirmed for us via Twitter). I went hands-on with the game and had a pretty good time. Let’s find out why.

A free to play experience

Dead Island: Epidemic Co-Op Impressions

When Dead Island: Epidemic was announced, many scoffed at the change in genre for the franchise. Deep Silver, looking to capitalize on the free to play market, have created a game that blends their series with MOBAs and to some degree, action RPGs. To our surprise there's also a dedicated co-op horde mode built into the game for four players. As these impressions are based on early beta versions of the game, a lot of this could change, but there's a good base here to get an idea what Deep Silver has planned.

Defiance Co-Op Preview and Developer Interviews

Chances are you've caught an advertisement for Defiance, the new shooter/MMO crafted by Trion Worlds. The game also happens to have an accompanying TV show of the same name debuting on the Syfy channel on April 15th. I recently visited Trion Worlds and put some time in with the sci-fi shooter, talking with developers, engaging in the Shadow War, getting crushed in PvP, and most importantly, checking out the co-op.
