After a four year absence, the classic beat ‘em up series Double Dragon returns with a brand-new entry on PlayStation 4 and Steam: Double Dragon IV. Featuring 8-bit style graphics and 2-player local co-op, this entry aims for the nostalgic crowd. But will gamers who missed out on the NES games get their money’s worth from this budget se...

Double Dragon IV Co-Op PreviewPaul Acevedo

A recent update to the Double Dragon IV site revealed tons of new details about the game. Although we still don’t know much about the actual story, the developers have revealed its place in the series timeline. As it turns out, the order of the previous games is as follows: Double Dragon>Double Dragon III>Double Dragon II. Thus Double Dragon IV directly follows the conclusion of Double Dragon II, which is appropriate since the new game uses many sprites from part II.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is the Warhammer 40k game I wanted 10 years ago. Its overall design - from the slow, plodding pace of the Terminators to the cramped corridors and distinct 40k architecture - and the emphasis on squad-based encounters against an overwhelming threat are truly outstanding. For every point where it shines, though, it also lacks a...

The Arctis line from Steelseries, a new line of headsets designed from the ground up to refocus on minimalist yet gamer-driven emphasis, launched this fall. While the Arctis 3, Arctis 5, and Arctis 7 have increasingly specialized features, each one is designed to boast the same quality sound. The unit I received was an Arctis 3, the set with the most basic features and lowest price tag of the three. Despite being the least expensive, this price-point ($80) still puts the unit on the high end of mid-cost units. The Arctis 3 comes with the headset and three separate cords. There’s a universal cord which plugs into the headphones and can then plug into a variety of audio out adapters, two of which come with the headset: a short 4-pole adapter (which can plug into controllers, phones, etc.) and a long 3.5 mm analog adapter that can plug into the audio and mic ports of a PC. Compare this with the Arctis 5 ($100 with USB connection and RGB LEDs) and Actis 7 ($150 for USB connection and wireless option).

The Fnatic Clutch G1 Optical Gaming Mouse, the second mouse in the Fnatic line, saw its debut at the beginning of this month. After spending nearly two weeks with it in hand, I wanted to share my thoughts on this minimalist mouse designed by gamers for gamers. Fnatic is an Esports organization with professional teams spread across multiple ...

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...

It’s fairly fitting that Battlezone VR is a launch title for Sony’s PlayStation VR platform. The original 1980’s arcade game in some ways can be considered one of the first VR games that was released. The cabinets had players looking through a set of goggles at a black and green lined based battlefield filled with tanks. Players w...

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches, we thought we’d check back in with the action-RPG/zombie survival game, Zombasite, which saw a full release back in August. While the title has received some updates and tweaks since we last took a look at it, the core elements remain unchanged and are still worth exploring for those of you who want a mor...

Kaos is back (again), wreaking havoc in the Skylands (again)! It's up to you and your gigantic Rubbermaid bin of figures from the last five years of Skylanders games to stop him! Oh, who am I kidding. You're going to shell out a couple hundred bucks on the new hotness that is Skylanders Imaginators. Perhaps you'll also invest in a nice ...
