There are a few things that, in my opinion, Eden Rising: Supremacy does right. For starters, it puts the whole "enjoy this game with your buds" idea up front by letting players create their own servers to which they can invite just their friends. While you can play the game solo if you like, it definitely feels like the kind of game that is more fun with one, two, or seven friends and working together. Because that cooperative idea is embedded from the start, there are a number of systems and mechanics in place that help facilitate that further.

Earthfall Gets Release Date and PublisherJason Love

The title is currently available via Steam Early Access with one campaign to check out, but once it launches in July, there will be two full campaigns spread across a total of 10 missions. Based on folks' time with that Early Access version, it sounds like the title is "Left 4 Dead meets aliens," with a couple twists along the way as you can 3D print your own guns and construct defenses to fight off your foes. That was very much the intent of the developers as, like so many of us, they were fans of the cooperative nature of that zombie shooter and the stories that emerged from players' time with the game.

While there is no set release date for the new content, receiving them for free is an unbeatable price. The announcement comes complete with a trailer showing off gameplay in X-Morph: Defense. It is easily one of the most visually appealing tower defense games which can be seen in the video below.

Both of the videos can be found below, with the first featuring “found footage” of a coach talking about survival, and the latter a nurse who struggles with infected patients and fellow survivors. Both of the trailers are intense and carry the dirty survival feeling that State of Decay 2 brings with it.

The game is set around the time of the original Halo: Combat Evolved and puts you in the boots of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST). Along with Master Chief and the rest of the UNSC, you'll be fighting Covenant forces on the "Alpha Halo" ring. As far as the action itself goes, it looks like it'll be a pretty straightforward on-rails shooter in the same vein as titles like Area 51 or Time Crisis.

I played a bunch of Dragon's Crown when it first came out and even convinced my partner to play, though she raised a few eyebrows over some of the character art. So, there may be some truth behind the latest trailer Atlus put out.

With E3 right around the corner, we'll undoubtedly get more details soon, but for now, here's what we know:

I'm not entirely sure who Destiny 2 is for anymore, and if I'm being brutally honest, I can't tell if Bungie entirely knows either. One of the biggest issues a portion of players had with the original Destiny was that the progression to get to the Vault of Glass raid (the initial endgame content) was long and arduous. Based on the latest expansion, I guess there are a number of players that miss that kind of grind as it's relatively easy to get to the new Power Level "soft cap" of 345, but it is a very long road to get to the hard cap of 385 (or even the recommended level of 370 for the new Raid Lair and Escalation activity). Unless you're ready to have 2 alts that are both the same class as your "main" so you can freely share gear between them in order to bump up your Power Level and make the most out of those "Powerful Engrams" you get from the weekly activities, you're most likely not going to get anywhere near that 370 level for several weeks.

Appropriately dubbed the "Overhaul patch," the update dropped last Thursday and in addition to "improved graphics," it also allows single player progress to be pulled into the couch co-op "Survival" mode and did some tweaking of the various levels and bosses. The full notes can be found over on Steam, but here's a quick rundown:

Long-time fans of the series likely know what to expect from this expanded version of the previously 3DS only title. There are a ton of monsters to hunt (over 90), lots of armor/weapons to craft, and some interesting/fun crossover gear, like Link's tunic. It also includes the "G Rank" hunting quests, an additional Elder Dragon, and a new endgame monster. It's a kind of celebration of all things Monster Hunter over the course of its 14 years in the gaming-verse. Oh, and you'll be able to transfer your save data from Monster Hunter Generations on the 3DS to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

The co-op portions of the video begin at the 1:18 mark, but seeing the track painting in action is worth watching the full thing, which can be found below. If you have missed the previous videos showing off Trailblazers’ gameplay, they can all be found here at Rising Star Games' official YouTube.
