Two months until you can take to the streets of River City once more

River City Girls Arrives Soon For All Your Co-Op Brawling Needs

Perhaps one of the most well-known and classic entries in the "co-op beat 'em up" genre is River City Ransom, which was originally released over 30 years ago on the Famicon/NES. That game was actually the third in the (now) long-running "River City" (or, "Kunio-Kun") series and all these years later, it's getting what feels like a sequel in the form of River City Girls. The twist? Rather than playing as "Alex" (Kunio) and "Ryan" (Riki) who set out across the city to rescue their girlfriends, you play as Kyoko and Misako (the girlfriends) and set out to rescue your boyfriends.

I guess I could hear another tale?

Borderlands 2 Commander Lilith DLC Stream Recap

Last month, Gearbox announced/revealed new DLC for Borderlands 2 titled "Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary." This add-on content provides a bit of a story bridge between the end of Borderlands 2 and the start of the forthcoming Borderlands 3. With not many new co-op releases these days, we decided to hop into the DLC and see how Pandora looks nearly 7 years later...

Pretty sure all these videos should just have Neil Cicierega's "Bustin" playing in the background

Meet The Hive Bustin' Crew From Gears 5's Escape Mode

Last month, The Coalition showed off the new three player co-op mode that, Escape, will be a part of Gears 5 when it arrives in September. Rather than staying in one spot and fighting off wave after wave of enemies, Escape puts you in the boots of one of three members of a "Hivebuster" crew and tasks you with being able to get out from the middle of a Hive before the angry Swarm, or the deadly bio weapon you deployed, takes you out. In three new videos, you can now get a chance to "meet" the members of the crew and go ahead and call "dibs" on your fave.

Special Operations Are Better In Pairs

Modern Warfare Spec Ops Co-op Confirmed

With the flurry of information that comes during E3 every year some nuggets of information can get skimmed over, and this particular one is pure gold. During the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare E3 Coliseum panel hosted by Geoff Keighley, members of the development team from Infinity Ward revealed that not only will the Special Operations (“Spec Ops” for short) return to the upcoming reimagining of the Modern Warfare series, but it will still feature co-op.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Same Old, Same Old

Well, well, well, if it isn't the ol' Co-Opticrew up to their usual weekend antics.  You try to trust them, right?  You try to give them some space and assume they won't all hop back into their comfort games, and just look what happens.  I, for one, feel like a danged fool, but I'll let it slide this one time.  I've placed the culprits on notice, though, and if this happens for a second consecutive weekend, they can be prepared for some very strongly worded letters.

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night Launches With The Help Of A New Trailer

Koji Igarashi himself has returned from atop his otherworldly spire to bless us, the pitiful gaming rabble, with a brand new "Igavania" title.  Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been hotly anticipated since its massive Kickstarter run back in 2015, and while companion title Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon satiated that hunger for a time, it was still considered an (extremely competent) appetizer.

All Of The Right Strokes

Kaliber HVER PRO RGB Keyboard Review

Each piece of gaming hardware can greatly alter the experience of the game being played. A faulty headset and the whole team feels the impact when you fail to communicate danger in time; a lackluster mouse and your interaction with the world through selection or direction can become more of a hurdle than it should be; and with a subpar keyboard the entire experience can be slammed to a halt, no matter the game. Thankfully, Kaliber’s HVER PRO RGB Keyboard does a great job whether it’s under the pressure that comes from the heat of a game or writing this very review.

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Stream Recap and Impressions

The final bit of content for Year 2 of Destiny 2 dropped a few weeks ago: the Season of Opulence. The big attraction this time around for all Annual Pass holders is the new six-player matchmade activity, The Menagerie. This "raid-lite" experience challenges your fireteam to progress through a series of objectives before facing a boss at the end. All of that is pretty fun, but it gets better: your rewards for completing all this is to "choose your own loot."
