This remake of the original Shovel Knight promises to be the definitive version.

Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX to Feature Online Co-op and Other Improvements

The original Shovel Knight was a popular platformer with local co-op and a great retro art style. Yacht Club Games ended up offering that first game as both Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (all DLC included) and Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope (just the main game). That's not confusing! Also not confusing is today's announcement of Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX, a remake of the original game that adds 2-player online co-op and many other choice features. So far, we only know it's coming to Steam, but other platforms shouldn't be far behind.

Hopefully, Xbox Series S|X players will experience less stutters and disconnects now.

MultiVersus V1.2 Update Improves Xbox Performance and More

When Warner Bros' and Player First's MultiVersus fully launched in May, the game was not without technical issues. Frame rate stutters and "desync" errors (disconnects) have occasionally marred an otherwise enjoyable Super Smash Bros.-style fighting experience. Thankfully, the version 1.2 update that arrived this week aims to address these issues, hopefully bringing an improved experience to all.

The Five Nights at Freddy's-like horror film comes home as a short beat 'em up with easy Achievements.

Willy's Wonderland - The Game - Co-op Review

Back before the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie came along, an indie horror movie called Willy’s Wonderland beat it to the punch. The low budget, pandemic-era film is actually a lot more fun than one might expect, helped in part by Nicholas Cage’s performance as a silent janitor. The movie received a mobile game adaptation in 2023, ...

The game's existing Classic mode is based on the first Castlevania, whereas this new DLC seems to take inspiration from Castlevania II.
