During the almost hour-long panel, the developers briefly talked about the new "fairy" frame, which has yet to be named, and stated that she would use those razor-edged butterfiles you see floating around her as one of her powers. Additionally, she would have "floaty powers" and would be able to "shrinks down to attack normal-sized enemies." Along with those details, they revealed that the existing Warframe, Vauban, would be getting a Prime version and that they've got some new events planned for the year, which seem to include something to do with the Grineer's matriachs.

Alienation's Weapon Upgrade System Detailed, Explosion ArtJason Love

Along with the video (featured below), Housemarque put up a post on the European PlayStation Blog detailing the weapon upgrade system in Alienation, which is its "metagame." Much of that game seems to entail getting better loot to make numbers go up, but it also sounds like the developer wants players to put some thought into the guns they use and develop one that best fits the way they run and gun. Essentially, players will be able to loot guns and cores. The cores come in four different flavors, and each core can be upgraded five times to unlock new effects. Mix and match the cores to produce a gun that does exactly what you want a gun to do, like shoot lightning or make a bunch of explosions.

Seems like no matter what game we talk about here, the future is always bleak. In the case of Action News Heroes, you're a mercenary that's been hired by a megacorporation, Network X, to take down one of its rivals, Sabre, while Network X's titular news branch films the whole thing. Yeah... kind of dark.

Lost Reavers pits you and three of your friends against a horde of undead and other foes as you navigate through a dungeon, solve some puzzles, search for a valuable relic, and then bring it back to safety. The player holding the relic will move slower and be limited in what they can do, so the others will have to protect them while they are moving it out. It appears that each of the four playable characters in the game offer a different play style as well, with one controlling similar to an FPS, another being third-person shooter, and yet another utilizing melee combo attacks.

Set just after the events in the movie, the game will put you in the shoes of a new recruit on the team. You can choose the gender and "class" before setting out on the streets of Manhattan to bust some ghosts. From the initial press release we were sent, it sounds like there will be some kind of experience and loot system that will allow you to upgrade and customize your Ghostbuster.

The final trailer for the new content is focused on the zombie piece of the expansion, Zetsubou No Shima. The intrepid quartet of heroes have found themselves stranded on a mysterious Pacific island where someone has been doing some not so legitimate experiments.

In addition to the new "Hearts and Minds" trailer, Deep Silver unveiled the "Merits" system on the Homefront website. If you create an account over there, you'll be able to earn some new threads for the co-op Resistance Mode. Simply log in, head over to the "Merits" section to see what "missions" are available, complete them to earn merits, and unlock pieces of the (purely cosmetic) Red Rebel set. Closer to the game's release, you'll be able to link your Steam, Xbox Live, or PSN account to your profile so that the set will be ready for you on launch day.

More "horde mode" than "raid," The Division's Incursion event requires players to have gear of a certain level in order to participate. This information was revealed in a patch a few weeks back and folks were anticipating that gear drops would be tweaked to allow endgame players to meet that requirement pretty quick. Despite wording in the updates leading up to, and including, the big one this month, many players are still finding gear that is sub-30 from the tougher enemies in the Daily/Challenge missions and the world at large.

The stream takes a look at the game's four unique characters and how they compliment each other in co-op play. Each character's distinctive style definitely has strengths and weakness in the heat of battle. We also look at some of the game's modes of play available and then our crew tries to dominate the leaderboards for co-op. Spoilers, it's a close finish.

A platformer with a light smattering of RPG elements, Bacon Man started as a Kickstarter campaign a couple years ago and just managed to secure its funding. The development team has continued to work away on the title and it appears it may be getting close to release as a Steam store page went up a few days ago and a new trailer dropped tells the story of its titular hero.

The most common crash PC players are encountering for now is the game crashing when you get to the main hub, the Firelink Shrine. There are a few different fixes being tossed around out there, and the most common three appear to be as follows:

The co-op has been expanded this time around into the newly dubbed "Rescue Mode." Up to four players, either online or local, can team up to go on rescue missions and free hostages. It's like "Rambo," but with chickens and penguins. What's more, every hostage you rescue gets added to the cast of playable characters, which you can customize and load out with as many weapons of death as he or she can carry.

Catalyst has three guns she can use in combat: Forge, Arc, and the Pulse Launcher. The first of those, Forge, is the big one for her class as it appears to apply a debuff on enemies or heal teammates (depending on at whom she's pointing the beam). The Arc looks like a kind of electric/lightning gun while the Pulse Launcher is akin to a grenade launcher. On the ability side of things, she can deploy a drone that stops incoming enemy fire, or she can shoot off a "temporal rift" that groups the enemies up into one spot for a good opportunity to knock them all out at once.
