Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for October, 2021

Yeah... so October lived up to it's reputation, didn't it? We counted a total of 78 releases across all platforms in our release calender. Enough for everyone to get their fix. How about a bit of real-time strategy? Age of Empires IV finally saw the light of day after 16 years of waiting and is ready for some good old comp-stomp action. Don't own a PC? Take a look at Iron Harvest then, which hit consoles this month and even offers a full-on co-op campaign. More of a shooty kind of person? Then you may be interested to hear that Quake got ready for next-gen consoles, Back 4 Blood and Far Cry 6 hit the market and even a new DOOM total conversion, REKKR: Sunken Land, stands ready to fulfill that old-school shooter need. All in all good times to be a co-op gamer as well as a co-op database as it saw another 120 entries added to it this month.

Our review of the game so far

Back 4 Blood Stream Recap and Impressions

Last night the crew dove into Back 4 Blood a day before its official release. It's the perfect time of year for a game like this and we were immediately reminded what makes these experiences so special. And while on the surface its easy to see Turtle Rock Studios return to the Left 4 Dead formula from many years ago,  Back 4 Blood definitely feels like a modern shooter.

Unexpectedly awesome

Timemelters Co-Op Stream Recap

I love pleasant surprises. Such as it was with Timemelters, a two player co-op tower defense like game for PC in which players are tasked with stopping hordes of evil creatures. But unlike most tower defense style games, it's played from an on the ground perspective and your towers are different defensive spells in order to manage the baddies.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for September, 2021

It's a good time to be a co-op gamer, don't you think? What? You don't? Well our release calender showed 69 (nice!) releases for September across all platforms. Is that not enough to convice you? Yes, not all of them offer the classic couch gaming experience many so heartly desire. We know. But at the same time not everyone has the luxury of readily available friends in close proximity. As such having the option to go online is something we appreciate, too.

Soon, we can make our own co-op Bubble Bobble levels!

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Bursting onto Steam September 30

Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day famously sang a plea to wake him when September ends. What's so good about the end of September, though? As it turns out, the last day of September will be very good for Bubble Bobble fans this year. That's when Bubble Bobble 4: The Baron's Workshop launches on Steam, complete with the first level editor in the series' history, 200 built-in levels, and 4-player local co-op.
