The new Star Trek game hit store shelves yesterday. Kirk and Spock, along with the rest of the crew of the Enterprise, will find themselves at odds with the Gorn, a race of rather awesome-looking humanoid lizards. This new trailer is full of action and sweet sound effects from the rebooted franchise. It features all the assorted pings and pews of a Star Trek space battle.
The console development of Tragnarion Studios' The Scourge Project, dubbed Scourge: Outbreak, has been underway for a little over the past year. This is more than just a straight port of the PC version, though. As we previously covered, Tragnarion is taking the time to make a game that is designed for the consoles, including new gameplay mechanics, a new enemy A.I., improved graphics, and more. The members of Echo Squad from the PC version are still around and the developers are taking the time to introduce us to them. First up is Shade, an Argentinian assassin with a personal vendetta against the Nogari Corporation (aka "Evil Corp 3000").
It seems like only yesterday that we brought word of Guns of Icarus Online's latest Kickstarter campaign, this time to expand the game beyond its current Skirmish/PVP mode into the realm of PvE and co-op. As of yesterday, Muse Games has hit their Kickstarter goal, which is good news for all of us. Meeting that goal means that the New York based developer can begin in earnest to develop and release the "Adventure Mode."
Sacred Citadel is out NOW! I know it's not Sacred 3, but after we played a little bit of the beat'em up I can say it's more than a pleasant distraction. The combat seemed a little dull for the first few minutes, but then we quickly unlocked some combos that added depth to the beat downs.
We had a chance to play through and review BattleBlock Theater, and then we tried to convince you to play it using our written words. Our feline captors said the show must go on, so we were forced to create a video performance for your viewing pleasure.
The long awaited North American demo for Soul Sacrifice will finally hit the PlayStation Network next week. The four player cooperative action RPG features a brutal spell casting system where characters can sacrifice objects, parts of their bodies, and even their lives, in exchange for powerful magic. You can sprout blades from your arms, engulf yourself in flames, and even spray your own blood at your enemies. Delightful!
I have to give Treyarch props, they've really come up with some unique and inventive mini-campaigns for their four player co-op mode in the Call of Duty game's they've developed. It's unique and fun content, like that found in the original Black Ops DLC, Escalation, which featured Hollywood stars Danny Trejo, Michael Rooker, Robert Englund, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. While that group fought off Nazi Zombies, the new content featured in the Uprising DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has a whole new cast facing off against a whole new menace - Mobster Zombies.
Free to play shooter Arctic Combat is getting brand new content on April 18th featuring co-op play for up to four players. There's not much detail yet, but we do have a teaser video filled with some music and visuals to get you psyched up for the battle ahead.
One of the more classic forms of co-op games is the brawler/beat-em-up genre. From Streets of Rage to the up-and-coming Dragon's Crown, we all enjoy a solid co-op brawler from time to time. The developers at newly formed Dinosaur share that sentiment are currently developing their first game, MechKnight Chronicles. We only have a little information at this time about the game, but so far, it's looking very promising. Inspirations for the title read like a greatest hits of the brawler and they're currently working to ensure the game has 4-player online, local, and, ideally, LAN, co-op.
Did someone call for a power-armored samurai who can dual-wield miniguns?! Because Earth Defense Force 2025's new Fencer soldier can do that, and more. When he's not raining metal death on the Ravager hordes, this BAMF is equipped to get up close and personal with the giant bugs and robots. He's got an indestructible shield of saving, a giant hammer of thwacking, and a deadly spear of poking. He's also decked out with heavy artillery --lots and lots of heavy artillery. It's kind of ridiculous. It looks like someone shoved a mini-Gundam into EDF. I'm okay with that.
Airwolf was an awesome (and I'm using the word loosely) mid-80's TV series that focused on a high-tech military helicopter. According to the internet, the franchise spawned nine video games. Seriously. Blue Thunder was a 1983 film that featured "the most advanced helicopter in the world." It even had a TV series and video game tie-in. Thunder Wolves is a 2013 downloadable game that has nothing to do with either of these franchises, other than the fact that the words "thunder" and "wolves" are in the title. Oh yeah, there's also a crap-ton of badass helicopters. The point is... well, there isn't really a point. Watch the damn video.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will receive another installment of DLC in less than two weeks. The latest digital offering from the ballistic behemoth will feature four new multiplayer maps and one hot new Zombie mode. The "Uprising" map pack will take the industry's most popular multiplayer versus gameplay to several locations around the world. Co-op players will be treated to a Zombie version of Alcatraz in the new undead game mode, "Mob of the Dead."
Today we have a new trailer from Sacred Citadel, the side-scrolling beat'em-up which takes place in the Sacred universe. In the brief video we are introduced to the Seraphim Mage, who apparently has no need of pants. If you've seen the other character videos you'll recognize the tune. This is the final playable playable character in Sacred Citadel. Wielding mighty spells, she joins the Ancarian Ranger, Khukuri Shaman, and Safiri Warrior.
Defiance launches today. A quick look at the Twitters tells me the servers are having issues, which is something to be expected from a new MMO --especially a new MMO which is launching simultaneously across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. I think I may wait until tomorrow to try to log on. For now I'll just cozy up with the Defiance launch trailer before I venture forth to explore the Bay Area Frontier. It's got explosions, guns, aliens, and alien cleavage. What else could you want?
