In addition to all that, Capcom revealed two special editions of the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition "includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter." The Collector's Edition includes all those bonus goodies, swaps the digital edition for a physical copy, a 5" (or 125 mm) Nergigante figure, a download code for a special 10-track soundtrack from the game, and a 32 page hardcover artbook. Pre-orders for these items have not yet gone live, but the Digital Deluxe will retail for $69.99 while the Collector's will go for $149.99. Pre-ordering any version of the game will net you a code for Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman, which offer improved starting defense and offense stat boosts for the hunter as well as a useful gathering skill. It's worth noting, though, that the bonus digital items you get in the Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition and the pre-order bonus items will all be made available for purchase separately at some point after the game's release.

Just Dance With Your Kids in Just Dance 2018Jason Love

This new mode features eight kid friendly songs and also includes a simplified choreography that was developed alongside child development experts. The developers targeted kids in the three to six age range, though I'm sure it'll be a blast for children of all ages.

There are a lot of different systems at play in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. In addition to the usual click and loot you find in many Diablo-style aRPGs, Martyr also has a crafting system, a way to generate your own mission using a special currency earned by completing daily quests, a "power level" that affects how easy or difficult a given mission may be, and an even larger concept of completing certain missions or taking certain actions will impact the overall field of play. The biggest problem, so far, is that pieces and components of those things are partially implemented, and none of them are linked up in a meaningful way that makes sense when you fist jump into the game. There's definitely some cool ideas and things going on in Martyr and we're looking forward to see how they develop, but for now, if you're interested in checking out, do know that it's in Alpha and there are some rough edges.

Our intrepid heroes have fought off zombies in a sci-fi themed amusement park, teamed up with Kevin Smith to shoot up more zombies at a rave in the woods gone bad, put their kung-fu skills to work in "Shaolin Shuffle," and fought off a giant Radioactive Thing! Today, they are teleported to the future where they will have to face off against a familiar foe to anyone who's enjoyed Call of Duty: Ghosts' Extinction Mode: the Cryptids.

The new two player mode is for the Switch only, and it supports drop-in/drop-out couch co-op. You can play through the entire game as one of the main protagonists (Hans or Helga) while your buddy takes control of the speer-chucking space-dog, das Wunder Hund.

There are any number of Monster Hunter-likes out there today, so what separates Dauntless from the those, at least for now, is that it feels a little more streamlined. Choose a weapon you like, choose a Behemoth to hunt, and away you go. Killing the Behemoth rewards you with materials you can use to craft new gear or upgrade existing gear to make it more effective at resisting damage, or grant new abilities. There aren't any character classes to distinguish your Slayer from another, just what weapon you use. The mouse/keyboard interface also makes the game a little more reminiscent of something like Diablo, which helped me get into a bit easier than some other titles in this genre.

Set in the megacity of Edenbyrg, you'll be dropped into the law-enforcing, cybernetic boots of a JYDGE equipped with a justice-dispensing Gavel rifle. You can alter and modify that rifle as you see fit; go full auto, or shoot lasers. You'll also be able to alter your JYDGE a number of mods that let you further customize how you play. Best of all, you can do all of this with a local co-op buddy.

If you bought in at the $80 Founder's level and have been playing through the Alpha, then there will be new content for you to check out in the Beta. New Behemoths to slay, new weapons and armor to craft, new islands to explore, and further story content are all going to be dropped in with the Beta launch, with more content planned for the future as this thing runs its course. The new trailer teases just a little bit of what's in store, ending with a Behemoth that I never want to see again cause oh god my nightmares.

Rockstar set its sights sky high, touting “...a massive range of new, customizable aircraft perfect for any mission along with expansive new aircraft hangars in which to stash your fleet of fantastic flying machines.” and while GTA V is almost 4 years old, its great to see a developer stand behind and believe in their game for an extended period (Skyrim, anyone?). It should be noted that the title, “Smuggler’s Run,” is openly referencing a game Rockstar published in 2000 for the PS2 and GameCube, and seeing a developer/publisher put things like that out there is fun, too. The full developer announcement can be found here.

While there are four titles offered in Microsoft’s Games With Gold, Battlefield 3 is what we here at Co-Optimus are excited about. Battlefield 3 was 2011’s version of the popular Battlefield series before the series explored a cops and robbers style slant in Battlefield Hardline, after which, the series returned to its military roots for 2016’s most recent installment into the series, Battlefield 1. The game features multiplayer as well as co-op gameplay with the latter coming in the shape of missions. These missions are quite difficult, with our own Nick Puleo fighting tooth-and-nail to succeed. You can read all of Nick’s thoughts here with our full review of Battlefield 3.

If you're wondering just what a rhythm/RPG game even looks like, the answer is: very colorful, and hectic. Like any traditional RPG title, The Metronomicon features a cast of playable characters from which to choose as you form your party and go out into the world to battle foes, gather loot, and unlock new abilities. Once you get into combat, though, the rhythm game aspects take over and you'll have to tap along to the beat in order to beat enemies. It's a really unique look/take on RPGs, and the fact that two player local co-op is supported across all game modes makes it even more enticing.

We'll have our Co-Op Review up later this week, but the long story short is this: we like it! The combat mechanics, the demands put upon the player to focus on learning how their moves transition into one another, and the further demands to learn (in more ways than one) what those moves look like when they're coming at you are all unique. Best of all, it's very straightforward and even if your level of skill/knowledge of fighting games is low, the simplified controls (you just push a couple buttons to attack) means that it's easy to pick up and play.
