Sailing the ship requires at least three players, with one driving, one navigating using the map, and one navigating using the crow's nest looking out for dangerous objects in the ocean.

Grave Danger Lands on PC, Console Versions Coming SoonJohn Bardinelli

Meet Dante, Malice, and Elliot, three adventurous folk with chips on their shoulders and prices on their heads. These outlaws are wanted dead and alive, so you can imagine their lives are a bit complex at the moment. You'll control these three "heroes" in Grave Danger, each of whom has unique abilities used to traverse and manipulate the world. Dante can wall climb and fire a pistol, for example, while Elliot double jumps and blasts wizard shots and Malice tosses a scythe and floats in mid-air. Use their skills to solve puzzles in each stage so everyone can reach the exit safe and sound.

Even if its E3 showing wasn't the most well-received demo given at the Microsoft conference, some folks that got hands-on with the game during events like GDC reported that the title showed a fair amount of progress. We never got a chance to check it out ourselves, but we were somewhat hopeful about a co-op title from Platinum, even if their most recent track record has been a little hit and miss. Here's hoping that this cancellation, along with the delisting of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, doesn't hurt the developer too much. While not a co-op title, their forthcoming game, NieR: Automata, has a very promising demo and will prove to be a win for the company in 2017.

I felt that the third title while intriguing in its own way and better about skill trees/progression as a whole compared to the previous titles, had its flaws as well. Notably, not being able to repeat any of the campaign and the weird difficulty spikes in the "Scenarios." Still, there are few enough aRPGs on consoles these days and it's different enough from Diablo to make it worthwhile.

With the "Winter Wonderland" event drawn to a close, fans of Blizzard's team-based shooter need something to occupy them until the next themed event. I'm guessing it'll be Valentine's related. Anyways, the new map is set in the Arabian Desert and features some nifty looking flying cars and, like, a scarab-boat thing? That's not in the official write-up, of course, which has this to say:

The game has been removed from all digital service platforms where it was previously available for sale. This means you can no longer find it on Steam, Xbox Marketplace, or the PlayStation Store. Boxed copies are still available via places like Amazon, so you can get it there if you're looking to pick it up. If you have previously purchased the game digitally, don't worry, you can still play it and download it again.

Prior to this update, if you wanted to play Super Dungeon Bros online, you had to play with three other people. Not a problem if you had three friends who also had the game, but very problematic if you only had one buddy who owned it. With the update, that problem is solved and online co-op is allowed for just two or three players. What's more, you can create a private lobby to ensure that you're only playing with your friends.

The "Stocking Stuffer Holiday Pack" will automatically be added to your game if own the Season Pass and along with Frank's big red suit, the zombies are getting into the spirit with outfits that include Santa's helper elves, gingerbread men, and snowmen.

If you don't own the Season Pass, then all of this content will cost you $4.99.

Deathtrap is from Neocore Games, the developers behind The Incredible Adventure of Van Helsing and the forthcoming Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr, and is set within the same universe as Van Helsing. Up to four players can team up online in the cooperative campaign to build towers and use their own abilities to stem the tide of foes streaming forth from the Chaos Portals.

The four aspiring actors that are hoping to make it big will now find themselves in a summer camp that's been taken over by "a few hundred raver kids" to hold an all-night rave party. Obviously things aren't going to go as planned if zombies are involved. Just as "Zombies in Spaceland" had a particular theme, "Rave in the Redwoods" appears to be going for more of a '90s slasher vibe. There's even some kind of special enemy called "The Slasher" that they'll have to fend off.

The Ender Update for the Windows 10 edition includes a lot of new content, like a dragon and a variety of items, as well as number of fixes. The update is free, but the "Festive Mash-Up" isn't. That will run you $3.99, but you'll get a new snowy world to explore and new skins, including a Krampus one.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is the Warhammer 40k game I wanted 10 years ago. Its overall design - from the slow, plodding pace of the Terminators to the cramped corridors and distinct 40k architecture - and the emphasis on squad-based encounters against an overwhelming threat are truly outstanding. For every point where it shines, though, it also lacks a...
