In the PS Blog post, producer Richard Wood answers all of these hot burning questions. Loot is not instanced per player so whatever drops is fair game. As the game supports local co-op only, though, presumably you and your buddy won't be fighting too much over who gets what. You're also free to drop items at any time for your friend, or even throw them at him or her. This sharing extends beyond just loot, too. When a player revives another player, the player that is doing the reviving shares their life with the player getting revived. So, if player one has 50 HP and revives player two, both will have 25 HP.

Top-Down Arena Shooter Tankr Headed to Steam in JuneJason Love

The big appeal to a game like this is attempting to best your friends in tank v tank combat, which can be done in preset levels and levels of your design with the map editor. However, four player local co-op is also support through the title's "campaign." I put that in quotes as the 100 levels of the campaign are more akin to challenges than any kind of story-based affair.

Most of the puzzles in Shift Happens revolve around you and your co-op partner shifting your sizes back and forth. It's an idea that appears to be similar to how Shiftlings operated, with the alien janitors in space suits that inflated and deflated being swapped out for sentient blobs. That's totally fine as far as I'm concerned as I feel you can never have too many co-op puzzle games.

Polygon has a more in-depth article on the title that dives into some of the bigger changes that are on the way, such as city improvements getting placed around your city rather than a button to click and units stacking to form new units. It's certainly worth a read if you're into the franchise and curious what impact these changes will mean. For folks curious about the co-op side of things, however, there's not too much to go on.

It's rather impressive that they've gotten all the actors, particularly Harrison Ford, to record new dialogue specifically for this game. Most of the LEGO titles thus far have just gotten voice actors that can do a rough impression of the more well-known versions of the characters, so it's kind of cool to see somebody flexing some kind of development/publishing/licensing muscle to bring these folks in to do some VO work.

On the Xbox One, the latest patch brings all of its content up-to-date with all of the content through patch v240 on the PC. It also fixes some bugs and memory crashes along with the Center map and the 100 player servers for that map. As far as the Center map itself is concerned, it is described as "a rich, hand-drawn Tolkien-esque aesthetic... filled with stunning lighting effects, lava rivers, giant picturesque mountains, misty floating islands, ancient underground ice caves, and more."

It seems Homefront: The Revolution will follow in the footsteps of many other titles and offer a combination of paid DLC expansions and free ones. The free ones will all be for the co-op Resistance Mode, adding more missions to the existing six. The first of these expansions will hit sometime next month.

Set aboard the ESS Meridian (a space ship), you're tasked with going aboard the vessel and finding out what happened to the ship and its crew. The game supports up to three players online throughout the game's 20 story missions, so you can grab a few friends to help you shoot all them undead. It also has some RPG mechanics, such as weapon and character upgrades, so your team can gear up to be the most efficient killing squad in all the galaxy.

Somber piano riff leading to bombastic orchestral track? Check. Emotional dialogue from one of the NPCs about this being "your time?" Check. Establishing shots of bad guys doing bad things? Check. The trailer definitely hits all those "tug at the heart strings" moments, but to its credit, it also makes me more interested in the game.

As with the previous two games, Robot Arena III lets you create your own custom robot and then put it in arena combat competitions against other bots to see which killing machine reigns supreme. You'll be able to create your chassis, add weapons to it, and then share them with others via Steam Workshop. The game will support online co-op with you and a partner facing off against two A.I. controlled bots.

In our stream we looked at two very early levels of the game and what makes Alienation not just a twin stick shooter - but a game that borrows elements from many of today's modern day persistent shooters like Destiny and Borderlands. We can't help but admire a really pretty game in the process.
