The first is the game now supports Mac on Snow Leopard and higher systems and it includes SteamPlay for cross platform play. So if you buy the game once, you can play it on either platform. Speaking of buying the game, DungeonLand is on sale right now for just $5 or the four pack for just $15.
Sanctum is back, and it's ready to fight! Sanctum 2 takes a more action-oriented approach to first person tower defense gaming, allowing you and as many as three friends join forces to corral and eliminate invading alien hordes.
Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine is a wickedly fun co-op game to play, but a what if it had included a multiplayer mode as well? Would it have taken away from the immersive co-op gameplay we have now? Andy Schatz recently described some reasons why Pocketwatch Games decided to stick to their co-op guns and forgo some competitive modes for Monaco.
News for those of you planning your next big heist in the gaming world. Payday 2, the sequel to Payday: The Heist, will extend beyond a digital release. The team at Overkill Software will be delivering the sequel via physical disc. Right now, the game is planned to release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. There will be a global release for Payday 2.
Resident Evil 6 may have been a disappointment for the most hardcore Resident Evil fans, but not every game in the series has strayed completely away from that original feel. The demo for Resident Evil: Revelations, which will be hitting the console scene next week, was given pretty decent reviews as a 3DS title.
Coffee Stain Studios has been releasing a steady stream of teaser trailers these last few weeks, getting everyone hyped up for its follow-up to 2011's Sanctum. Combining tower defense mechanics with a first person shooter core, Sanctum was a surprising hit. The sequel takes a slightly different path, riding the action train to Shoot-All-The-Things Town, leaving some of the strategy behind in favor of hands-on alien killing.
Sanctum 2, the sequel to the two-year-old tower defense/FPS crossover Sanctum, now has a release date. In just a week's time (May 15th), Sanctum 2 will be storming onto XBLA and PC for your alien-killing, laser-firing, core-defending pleasure. It should be released on PSN shortly thereafter, but the exact date is currently unspecified.
It was around this time last year that Blizzard unleashed their 3rd installment to the Diablo series. Coincidentally, Neocore Games recently announced that their own gothic title, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, will release close to the same date.
It’s not always easy to going against the grain, especially when wanting to make significant changes within a culture. This, however, didn’t stop Pocketwatch Games from making a statement with Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine. Andy Schatz recently wrote a special editorial to Kotaku about why they chose to take the game in the co-op route instead of just going a generic multiplayer one.
Get ready for the heist of the year, playable on your couch via XBLA this Friday, May 10th. The sensational Monaco: What's Yours is Mine has already been making ripples in video game headlines, delivering devious joy to critics and players alike. Originally slated to release with the PC version of the game on April 24th, Monaco for XBLA has been in Microsoft Certification limbo for what seems like an eternity due to a fatal game bug. The bug in question would have caused disconnects during online play. Rather than elect to release the game with the issue and attempt to fix it later down the road, Pocketwatch Games wanted to nip the problem in the bud. They did so, and the gaming world has been waiting desperately for the game to pass the Microsoft Certification process. And the day will finally come this week.
Left 4 Dead 2 will be entering into its Linux version very shortly, integrating it with Valve’s ongoing “Extended Mutation System” beta. What is EMS exactly? Essentially, it’s an easy way for modders to change various scripts within the game, totally customize them however they choose, and so much more (not to be confused with the Steam Workshop). Up until now, this system has only been available in very small testing groups, but that’s about to change very soon.
Stepping into the spotlight one by one, a new series of trailers have begun trickling through the intertubes promoting the impending release of the arcade brawler Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. It starts with Michelangelo, who we already know "is a party dude". He also happens to be the youngest and fastest member of the turtle bunch. The trailer below shows off some of his moves, and the image above shows off his ability to induce nightmares.
An indie game rarely is in development for four years; a variety of concerns (primarily money) would make it difficult for an independent developer to tweak and refine a game for that long. Yet Pocketwatch Games' award-winning and much anticipated co-op title, Monaco: What's Yours is Mine, managed to make it through its long development cycle and finally gets sprung today on PC. Some games spend years in development and fall flat. Monaco, though, is well poised to steal your gaming time.
Chances are you are not alone if you haven't heard of Orion: Dino Beatdown. A budgeted PC title that was released last year, Orion is a class-based cooperative game in which you survive hordes of dinosaurs using high tech weaponry. You can team up with up to four other players online to duke it out with prehistoric monstrosities. Sounds fun and different, right? Well, sad to say, we did not enjoy the game very much at all, giving it a very low score. Certainly the game was not recommended for play. To check out our review, take a look here.
When PAYDAY: The Heist isn’t enough to satisfy your desire to experience team- based burglaries, we have just the right game for you to dive into, with all the pixelated, retro-gaming love you can get. Pocketwatch Games is pleased to present to us with the official Monaco: What’s Mine Is Yours trailer just before the game releases mid next week!
