We put a story yesterday that discussed what's free now within Starcraft II, but as a quick recap:

Door Kickers: Action Squad Stream RecapJason Love

I only ever played a little of the original Door Kickers, though I know both Nick and Locke really dug the top-down tactical action that it offered. Changing the format to a side-scrolling action platformer left both of them wondering how tactical it would be, and we were all pleasantly surprised by what KillHouse has done with this follow-up. Each level presents players with a set objective (e.g., rescue all hostages, clear all hostiles, or defuse a bomb), and the way you go about achieving said objective is entirely up to you and your co-op buddy. For example, two enemies standing below two skylights presents a great chance for you and your buddy to do a quick little countdown and drop down on the baddies simultaneously. You could also drop down on your own (assuming you're playing as the "Shield" class) to attract their attention/fire, while your buddy drops down a little after behind them and takes them out. The way you go about doing all of this is entirely up to you and elements of the game reminded us of titles like GunpointRonin, and Hotline: Miami.

Pixwerk's 16-bit inspired twin-stick shooter, Tower 57, is now available on the PC. Players can enjoy this retro-style shooter with a buddy either locally or online. Tower 57 is available on PC via Steam or GOG.com. You can also pick up a 2-pack so you and your buddy can play together online via Humble Bundle. It's slated f...

Back in 2013, Nordic Games bought a significant portion of properties that were associated with former developer/publisher THQ after it filed for bankruptcy. Last year, they Nordic Games rebranded itself as THQ Nordic and started doing some new work and republishing of those titles it acquired. Titan Quest was one of these properties and they did a little bit of rework on it before putting it back out there as Titan Quest: Anniversary, which also includes the first expansion "Immortal Throne." I think we all figured that that would be the end of things, but then the Austrian developer dropped new DLC. It's impressive that company is both keeping many of these titles alive by making them available again for modern consumption, while also working to add new content.

It's pretty amazing/impressive that a studio can crank out new modes/content like this for a title that, ostensibly, is geared around its 5v5 PvP mode. This isn't the first time they've done this, either, and while their "Adventures" aren't always co-op in nature, it's cool that there are some different things that are tossed in to attract folks into the game.

Gears of War 4 was published by Microsoft Studios and the official announcement video below is per Xbox so both creations are straight out of Microsoft’s own kitchen. In the video, the different enhancements are laid out, but according to VG247 the upgrades are options the player can switch between.

The developers took to their Kickstarter page to inform their backers that the game is now going to arrive a little later than expected:

There's a catch to all of this, naturally. While the "Mortal Empires" DLC is free to download and install, and it also supports two player online co-op, you have to own both games in order to play it. That caveat applies to both players, too. So, if you've got a friend that only picked up Total War: WARHAMMER 2 after you raved about it and the first one, then they cannot join you in a Mortal Empires campaign even if you host it because they only own one of the games. So, yes, the DLC is "free" if you've forked over $120 to buy both games.

The open beta will run from December 9 to December 12 and all you'll need to participate is a PlayStation Plus membership. No sign up or limited space thing here, just go download the beta when it goes up on the PSN Store next month. The beta itself will include three specific hunt missions (a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, and a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste) and it will support four player online co-op as well. There will also be a variety of weapons, Mantles, and other goodies you can try, as Community Manager Yuji Araujo detailed in the PlayStation Blog post:

The initial rumors that were heard last month were spot on and the only real new bit of info is the release date (December 5 for every platform) and the increased Character/Power levels (25 and 330, respectively). When the DLC arrives next month, players will be able to head to Mercury, a planet that has only ever been a setting for PvP matches, to take on new quests/missions, hang out in a new social space (the Lighthouse), play new Strikes, puzzle through a new Raid, and enjoy new loot.

To this day, the one twin-stick shooter I still occasionally go back to and play again is Witch Beam's Assault Android Cactus. There is so much depth to the gameplay that every time I pick it up, I feel like I learn something new; and playing through it with a buddy (or three) makes it even better. So, head's up Xbox One owners, it'...
