Arguably the best and most feature-filled entry in the Metal Slug franchise, Metal Slug 3 was the last series entry developed by creator Nazca, prior to SNK's collapse and sale to current IP owner Playmore. Built off the success of its predecessors, Metal Slug 3 packs a ridiculous amount of content, boasting four selectable characters, a destructive arsenal of weapons and mechanized mounts, numerous secrets and hidden areas, and a memorable final stage that's longer than all of the game's previous levels combined.

Console Versions of Terraria Get Invaders from the MoonJohn Bardinelli

With the invading swarms to fend against comes loads of other bug fixes, new items, new enemies, and gameplay tweaks. A lot of the extras are Christmas themed, such as the Christmas Tree Sword or Razorpine weapons and elf hats. New enemies include Present Mimics, Yetis, Nutcrackers, Zombie Elves and Gingerbread foes. Yes, the release is 10 months away from Christmas. Moon invaders are apparently that cruel.

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is a co-op beat-em-up game that hit Xbox Live Arcade in 2013. A year later it found more fans when it moved to PlayStation Vita. Now, the PC release is finally here, so we can all stand for applause. Think of PBB like River City Ransom, Scott Pilgrim or Double Dragon, only a little more on rails and a little mor...

It's the latter we are most interested in for our latest Co-Op Twitch Stream. Last night we took on a few maps, earned a few capes, and enjoyed a brutal slaying in three player co-op for Gauntlet. It's OK, we're world ranked. Just don't ask us where in the world we are ranked.

There comes a time where we must say farewell to beloved titles. Games vanish for a variety of reasons, ranging from servers getting yanked offline to some shady legal dealings, ie Too Human. This week's casualty is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on the Xbox Live Arcade and PSN. The critically acclaimed beat'em'up isn't the r...

On top of training an army of mindless skeletons, her "Ghost Walk" ability lets her traverse through groups of enemies for a limited time. Since Gauntlet is nothing but a colossal amount of baddies on screen wanting to carve you up, Lilith's Ghost Walk can poof her out some sticky situations.

Just in time for the season where that fat guy in the red suit comes 'round, Terraria mobile gets its share of goodies thanks to the new release. Tons of tweaks, updates, additions and extras have been added in the 1.2 update, including over 1,000 new items, 100 new enemies, four new bosses, and something about a gun that shoots rainbows. Yeah, the extras are way too big to list, but this handy bullet point thingie should get you started:

If, for some bizarre reason, you haven't heard of Terraria, let me paint you a word-picture.  Imagine that you and a couple friends have spent the last few hours attempting to summon to your realm a floating, eldritch eye.  Some of your comrades had doubts about constructing the demonic altar necessary to persuade the creature to cross paths with your dimension, but you were relentless.  At long last, the forbidden task is complete, and the glowing eye lies staring at you.  One of your group, a dissenter from the start, grabs the eye from atop the altar and rushes out into the darkness of night, determined to destroy it.  Your attempts to stop him fail.  Standing there, alone, he raises a fist to the twilight sky, and crushes the nether-being in his palm.  A rumble in the distance startles you.  The ground begins to quake.  You know that the hour for battle has arrived.  Your party retreats to its fortress, a towering iron behemoth constructed through your own sweat and tears.  A gigantic eye, not unlike the one destroyed moments ago, emerges from somewhere in the earth.  Yngwie Malmsteen is also there, and he's playing a ripping solo.  Your showdown begins.

Halloween may be past, but that doesn't mean the horrors of the holiday can't still be experienced on all the current gen consoles! New versions of the popular, downloadable twin-stick shooter How to Survive are now available on the PS4 and Xbox One platforms!

The Halloween texture pack swaps Minecraft's visuals and interface around to give it a spooky, autumney setting. It happens to be free, so why not, right? The Steampunk pack doesn't have anything to do with the time of year, but it still looks great. Airships, skeletons with brass monocles, zombies in bell diving suits, and plenty of Victorian-inspired block patterns. This pack will set you back the equivalent of 1 USD, depending on region. Both packs can be applied to new or existing worlds in single player as well as co-op, so you don't have to tear down your tree fort just to give it a little Halloween cheer.

With little to improve on its original release, (see our review of Outland for consoles) the Steam version serves more or less as a port of the same experience console players got in 2011. Housemarque stated that the game received improvements to the campaign co-op mode and checkpoint system, but during my time playing, I didn't notice that much of a difference - not that there were noticeable flaws to begin with.

We loved Outland when it first launched in 2011 on consoles, and with improvements to the co-op campaign and checkpoint system in its Steam release, we suspect that love will only grow. Outland features stunning graphics with hand-painted backgrounds, and an original soundtrack we don't mind listening to again and again.

For those of you have yet to try out CastleStorm, Definitive Edition will be a great way to experience the very best quality the game has to offer. The game is a mashup of tower defense and some brawler action gameplay, all within a medieval setting. We can look forwards to purchasing this new iteration come this September 23rd for just $10; not a half bad deal if you ask us! Mel Kirk, VP of Publishing at Zen Studios had this to say regarding the Definitive Edition:
