Earth Defense Force: World Brothers Mixes Voxels with Giant Bugs

The next game in the Earth Defense Force series is going to be a little different. Called Earth Defense Force: World Brothers the game makes uses of voxels instead of polygons to convey its destructive nature. While the game was always over the top, the new style gives it a slightly more kid friendly feel but still B-Movie all the same. The game isn't a change in direction for the series, it's merely a spin-off.

Sequel includes online co-op play

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North Hits Early Access

The original Door Kickers was great tactical title that reminded me of the original Rainbow Six's planning mode with overhead execution. It wasn't until late in its life that the game got a patch to include co-op play. Now, learning from that experience, developer KillHouse Games have created a proper sequel with co-op in mind from day one with Door Kickers 2: Task Force North.

Evil West is Red Dead Redemption meets Shadow Warrior

Developer Flying Wild Hog really burst into the action scene with their shooter Hard Reset back in 2016. After the co-op friendly Shadow Warrior 2, they began working on a single player only sequel. Apparently though they've also been working on a new game set in the old West that's not quite as grounded as say...Red Dead Redemption. Enter the Evil West.

Marvel's Avengers Stream Recap - Checking out Kate Bishop DLC

The last time we checked in with Marvel's Avengers was over three months ago. At that time the game had only just launched and it was loaded with bugs, glitches, and frankly was almost unplayable in co-op. Recently the game got its first character DLC with Kate Bishop, released for free for all players. So we decided to dive back in.

Booty is in the eye of the beholder.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Raid Lyfe

The Co-Opticrew is on the lookout for things to pillage this weekend.  We don't care if it's enemy ships, antagonistic aliens, or our own dreamscapes.  If there's loot to be had, we're on the case.  What will we do with said loot?  Probably just ogle it for a while until something better comes along, if we're being honest.  C'est la vie.

A good mid-tier offering with a few drawbacks

ASTRO A20 Gen 2 Review

ASTRO debuted its first A20 (Gen 1) wireless headset three years ago as a mid-tier alternative to the pricier A50. As the gaming industry prepared for the launch of the current gen consoles (PS5 and Series X), so, too, did ASTRO; this past October they launched the Gen 2 version of the A20 wireless headset, which touts a couple new features over the Gen 1 while still maintaining that mid-tier pricing.

Older Halo Games Could Someday Get 4 Player Co-Op

One of the consistent things every Halo game has had is co-op play. And while it simply started as clones of Master Chief running around in 2 player co-op Halo, the game progressed to integrate it into the story with Halo 2 as the Chief and Arbiter were the focus of that campaign. And with four player co-op being added in Halo 3,  it changed the benchmark for the series.

Anything can happen.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Snow Day

It's getting mighty chilly around Co-Optimus HQ.  If things get any worse, we may be forced to take a few days off and wait for the routes to clear between our bedrooms and... our other bedrooms.  There's no telling what could happen if we tried to commute in these conditions, so it's probably better to play it safe.
