Space Invaders Invincible Collection Co-op Review

In 1978, Taito’s Space Invaders took Japanese arcades by storm, becoming one of the highest-grossing arcade games of all time. The game would become a success in international markets as well, going on to spawn numerous revisions and sequels in the early days of arcades. More than 40 years later, Space Invaders still enjoys a loyal following ...

Spelunker HD Deluxe Brings the Challenge on PlayStation and Switch

Classic 8-bit platformer Spelunker was remade and given the co-op treatment as Spelunker HD back in the PlayStation 3 days. Because that version of Spelunker HD can't be played on today's consoles, another remake makes perfect sense. Thus, ININ and Tozai Games have just released Spelunker HD Deluxe on PlayStation 4/5 and Nintendo Switch. Wi...

Fast-forwarding to this summer, developer Neon Giant and Curve Digital have just released the cyberpunk sleeper hit action RPG The Ascent exclusively on Xbox and PC. By all acc...

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Heading to Steam with a Level Editor

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, the latest game in Taito's classic co-op arcade platformer series, released on PlayStation and Switch a while back and later received extra levels with 'The Baron is Back' update. The next logical step for Taito and publisher ININ would seem to be the release of Xbox and PC versions. Sadly, Taito continues to avoid showing Xbox any love, but a Steam version is finally happening. It will be called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop, and it will feature a brand-new level editor.

Can you smell what Turtle Rock is cookin?

Back 4 Blood Co-Op Preview

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to check out Back 4 Blood, the latest from Turtle Rock Studios. During their sneak peek event we played through a PVP session and a lengthy co-op campaign. My initial thought was "how do you improve on a pillar of co-op gaming like Left 4 Dead?" After playing for a couple hours, I can say it has a lot of cool things going for it.

The 'Left 4 Dead 2' Survivors Are Now Playable in Zombie Army 4

When Rebellion released the free 'Left 4 Dead Character Pack' for Zombie Army 4 in June, we suspected that it was only a matter of time until a character pack with the Left 4 Dead 2 characters followed. That has now come to pass - the new free DLC pack adds the four Left 4 Dead 2 survivors to Zombie Army 4 as playable ch...
