Some clever video game spelunkers recently uncovered a pair of easter eggs hidden away in LEGO Dimensions. Apparently, LEGO exhumed and then dusted off the long-dormant, classically beloved (not to mention chronologically opposed) cartoons The Flintstones and The Jetsons. Not that Batman, Gandalf, and crew can actually go kick it with Fred or George, but you can break into their houses and smash all of their furniture!
While the hey day of arcades may be gone, many of the games that spawned from those times still exist in one form or another. One of the rarest of these (in the U.S., at least) was the DARIUS series; a side-scrolling shooter with an extra wide-screen in the cabinet, a unique feature. The series lived on through several sequels over in Japan and the latest entry, DARIUSBURST Chronicle Saviours, will now see a digital release on the PS4, Vita, and PC.
When I first lost myself in the world of Rivellon last year, it was a fun trip, though one I never quite finished. With the release of Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, I believe I will be seeing that journey through to the end.
You don't have to wait until Cyber Monday to get a good deal on a Steam Link and Steam Controller. Just for tuning into Co-Optimus today, you'll have a chance to win the set along with a key that unlocks EVERY VALVE GAME EVER, even the ones that haven't released yet. Yup - even Half-Life 3.
Sword Coast Legends, released back in October, is an attempt by developers Digital Extremes and n-Space to hearken back to the days of yore. A time when CRPGs were (sort of) turn-based, loot littered the ground like candy wrappers on a street after Halloween, and just about any Tom, Dick, and Harry could claim their right to be heroes of legend.
Nice name, right? Fermenter Games' Neighborhorde is a four player couch co-op twin stick shoot-em-up that aims to bring a little levity into the horde-vanquishing shmup genre. It does this with colorful 3D visuals, crayon drawings of freaky monsters, and hair dryer weapons that shoot flames.
The "Old Hunters" DLC arrives next Tuesday, November 24, for everyone's favorite action RPG, Bloodborne. If you've been looking forward to this new content and eagerly awaiting any news about the new weapons, then allow us to highlight for you the bowblade. Yep. It's a blade that turns into a bow.
Studio Wildcard continues to add to the impressive array of creatures that can be found in ARK: Survival Evolved. This time, two new creatures have been given the added: the Kairuku and Angler.
A new update for Destiny arrived this week that fixed a few things, added all of the legendary swords to Lord Shaxx's inventory for purchase, and added weapon parts to the Gunsmith's stock for purchase. In addition, keen-eyed players noticed a few new items showing up in those big iPad terminals that are linked to the new "refer-a-friend" feature Bungie mentioned (briefly) in a recent post.
New alpha, fewer bugs, better visuals. That just about sums up the latest update to the co-op puzzle adventure game BFF or Die. Honey Tribe Studios continues to tinker with its tongue in cheek title that focuses on getting players to work together for the greater good. And if they don't? Well, the title pretty much answers that question.
Launching a game with a robust online architecture is increasingly vital for developers as horror stories keep appearing of new games having bad servers. Therefore, the multiple Beta is now king. Rainbow Six Siege has had several Closed Betas, as Co-Optimus tested, but now the general public will get a chance for some hands on with the game before launch.
