Whereas The Red Solstice focused more on squad combat similar to Syndicate or Satellite ReignSolstice Chronicles: MIA opts for more of a twin-stick shooter feel. That doesn't mean Ironward has completely abandoned the class and strategy elements from their previous game, but they have tweaked things to be faster paced.

Just one more week until you can enjoy Bone Spears, Blood Golems, and all the skeletons you can muster, provided you own the Reaper of Souls expansion on the PC or Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One (sorry PS3 and 360). This new add-on content finally has a price, too: $14.99. However, it's not just the Necromancer class you'll get with that, you also get the following:

The main hook to "Salmon Run" is that in addition to fending off waves of enemies, called "Salmonids," you and your teammates will also need to collect a number of "Golden Eggs," which drop from bigger foes, within a set time limit. Even after you collect all the eggs, however, you still have to survive the remainder of the wave. The mode also has a difficulty setting that goes from 5% (easiest) to 100% (hardest). Even on the easiest difficulty, you'll need to work with your teammates to call out bosses and incoming threats.

Similar to Super Mario Galaxy, where players took control of a star and could float around Mario and assist him, the co-op for Super Mario Odyssey allows a second player to join in at any time and control Mario's hat, Cappy. The co-op demo that Nintendo held on their stage yesterday starts around the 4:00 mark in the video below and then wraps up around the 13:00 mark. While controlling Cappy, the second player is able to fly around independently from Mario, which they show off by solving a puzzle involving collecting music notes. Cappy is also invincible and can attack enemies for Mario to keep him out of danger.

It plays a bit like an Action/RPG in the same vein as Diablo 3, but with a limited roster of 14 DOTA 2 characters to use. You'll build a party of four, head out into a large map, and take on various quests with progress saved at various checkpoints. Players have limited lives which can be augmented by reaching a checkpoint.

The entire campaign can be played with up to four buddies online with each player being able to gain experience and level up their Sam as they see fit. Once you've kicked some alien butt through all manner of pyramids, you can grab even more friends to tackle the Survival mode, which supports up to 12 players total.

The sizzle reel doesn't go into too much detail, but from the E3 game page, it sounds like in addition to inhaling enemies and gaining their powers, Kirby can also befriend them and turn them into allies. Presumably it is these newly won over recruits that players two through four will be able to control. So only player one will get to utilize Kirby's copy abilities and the new tricks, like imbuing them with different elements.

While it doesn't have a proper name just yet, the announcement trailer shows off all the key details we need to know. Action platforming? Check. Two player local co-op? Check. Adorable art style with a bit of a twist? Double check. It appears that rather than slinging balls of yarn around, this time Yoshi will be in a kind of cardboard world which can be flipped so you can see the other side of things.

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.

The expansion, titled "Awakening the Nightmare," will shift the campaign over to Atriox and his Banished forces as they fight off everybody's favorite Halo enemy: the Flood. From an overall story perspective, these events take place a few months after the conclusion of the main campaign as the Banished are now desperate to take control of the Ark. I get that desperate times call for desperate measures, but unleashing some zombie plants doesn't seem all that smart.

Update: Earlier, we reported that the two player local co-op would include co-op in the campaign. This has since been clarified and the co-op will only be in specific challenges. The main campaign will be single player only.

Granted, huddling around a computer screen isn't exactly the ideal way to couch co-op something, but as senior programmer Stephen Glindmeyer points out, our modern 1080p screens are way better than those CRT TVs of the past. "When you get a bunch of friends together, it’s nice to be able to play a modern game without having to buy 4 copies and 4 gaming PC’s.  With modern 1080p monitors, each quadrant of a 4 player splitscreen actually has 7x as many pixels as the entire screen in Mario Kart 64 or Goldeneye!"
