Can the New Update Save Super Dungeon Brothers?Sam Tyler

Having put in a few hours into Brothers it is fair to say that it had a few niggling glitches that detracted from the game.  The 4 player co-op could be fun, but was rife with issues - players being kicked for no reason being one.  There was also no way of creating a private game for fewer than 4 players and getting together a posse that size is not always easy.

Based on the 680 hours I've put into this title so far, I think it's safe to say I'm something of a fan of it. Of course, give me any action-RPG title with superheroes and you're likely to get at least a few hours of my time. While I've certainly enjoyed my time with this free-to-play title, there were a few elements I found less than ideal. The biggest issue I had with it was the fact that the whole underlying mechanics with powers and gear choices pretty much meant that out of the impressive roster of (then) 59 characters from which you could play, only about five of them were considered "good" for end-game play.

That's a whole lot to dig into, so let's break it down piece by piece starting with Beatrix. While Beatrix is now live in the game, she's still in a short "Early Access" period where Season Pass holders will be able to play her a week before she's released to the general public. That will be on January 26th, 2017. Beatrix can be unlocked for 47,500 in-game credits or with a hero key, which is included in the Season Pass.

Prior to this update, if you wanted to play Super Dungeon Bros online, you had to play with three other people. Not a problem if you had three friends who also had the game, but very problematic if you only had one buddy who owned it. With the update, that problem is solved and online co-op is allowed for just two or three players. What's more, you can create a private lobby to ensure that you're only playing with your friends.

The new commander appears to rely heavily upon Infested Civilians to swarm the opponent and keep them pinned down while building up the rest of his infested forces to unleash upon them. His two big abilities are to call in a suped up Ultralisk, Apocalisk, which has a lot of health and damaging attacks that target both ground and air units, or to call in an infested version of the Aleksander, which disperses Infested Civilians all around and can also mind control enemy air units.

Once you have access to all of those characters, you'll need to try and figure out which one you like, right? Well that's where the new "Dojo" training mode comes in. Select a character and go up against some A.I. bots to get a better feeling for their abilities and Helix progression system. After you get comfortable with them, then go to town in the cooperative Story Mode, or the PvP mode, if you prefer. Both of those modes are getting some overhaul as well, like better guides in the Story Mode to fill you in on what to do next, and better Credit rewards for both.

Along with the map and Steam Workshop Support, the game is also getting an interesting new feature with "Custom Training" mode. This mode will let players design their own training module by picking the map, the type of sequence, i.e., striker or goalie, and its difficulty. You'll then be placed into the map with the ability to place the car, the ball, and control the path the ball will take. Once you've got all that figured out and tested, you can upload it for others to enjoy. It's an interesting way to create some very specific shot training exercises and up your game.

In addition to the new vertical splitscreen, the update that drops today also adds two new maps, Glory and Speyer, to multiplayer, and some various tweaks/improvements. One of the bigger ones for Horde are the changes to mounted turrets, which now do less damage, are less accurate, and have lower ammo reserves. The full patch notes can be found in The Coalition's community forums here.

The "Festive Edition" of PvZ: GW 2 actually just replaces the current version of the game across all platforms. So if you're interested in picking up the game now, then when you drop the $39.99 for the title you'll get this content automatically. If you already own the game, then you'll need to pony up $9.99 for the legendary characters, customization pack, and 200,000 PvZ coins that can be spent buying more in-game card packs

Just as with the Beastman expansion, the Wood Elves DLC will not inlcude a whole new race to play (with new units and new mechanics), but also a new mini-campaign that features the race outside of the main Grand Campaign mode. The Wood Elves will be lead by two new legendary lords (the demigod Orion and the Treeman Durthu) and offer a different kind of victory condition: restoring the Oak of Ages. You can check out the store page for the DLC for more details, but this race will be quite different from those we've seen so far in the game.

The Terraria update is available on both the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Dungeon Defenders II. In addition to the new Dryad hero, a whole new biome (Forest) and a new NPC (Wayfarer) with new weapons have been added to the game. The update also brings with it a number of bug fixes and other improvements, so check out the dev's full blog post for all the details.

Back in September, the dev team posted that the PvP focused "Siege" mode "just hasn't worked out." Outside of a small devoted number of players, the cooperative "Survival" mode was proving to be far more popular. That presented a problem for the developer as devoting resources to address the concerns/issues of both player sets meant the game was never going to satisfy anyone. So, they decided that it would be best to drop "Siege" entirely and start focusing on "Survival" with the "next big update." That update is coming next month.
