The game, due out in the fall, is still looking good, though.

RWBY: Arrowfell Won't Be Co-op After All

Last summer, WayForward and Arc System Works announced their collaboration on an upcoming game, RWBY: Arrowfell. The newest game based on Rooster Teeth's CG-animated series will add to the plot of the show's seventh volume, complete with series-accurate voice actors and cinematics. RWBY: Arrowfell was first announced as featuring local and online co-op. A year later, we have a new trailer and gameplay details, plus a bit of bad news. Arrowfell will now be a single-player game when it arrives in the fall.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for June 2022

Oh boy, what a month. Geoff Keighley may have tried to dampen our expectation in terms of new announcements before the start of Summer Game Fest 2022. But there were still several hundred games shown during the various showcases. Thanks to Steam Next Fest, those games available to test out during June. As opposed to last year, however, the co-op output was a bit lacking overall. Of course, there were still a few games announcements featuring co-operative options like Minecraft Legends or Goat Simulator 3, but we can't hide the fact that we were a bit disappointed.

Even without a partner, it's still a bloody good time.

DeathRun TV Arrives on Switch and PC - Without Co-op

Almost exactly a year ago, we wrote about an in-development game called DeathRun TV from Laser Dog and Merge Games. DeathRun is a twin-stick shooter/Roguelike that takes obvious inspiration from The Running Man and, just maybe, Smash TV. Fast-forwarding to now, DeathRun TV has finally launched on Steam and Switch, but there's a catch: the co-op mode that was initially announced is nowhere to be found. Still, even as a single-player-only game, DeathRun TV is pretty solid and compelling.

Improving my favorite headset

Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX Review

Last year I reviewed the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 and called it "quality comfort." In fact I've reviewed a handful of other headsets since then and still go back to the Stealth 700s as my favorites. Turtle Beach is back with a minor update this year that includes several claimed improvements with battery life leading the charge. This is also the first fully cross gen version of this headset that covers just about any platform out there - which is an improvement all to itself.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April 2022

It's finally time to unpack that boomstick and oil up the chainsaw again! On May 13th, the aptly named Evil Dead: The Game will finally hit store shelves. The first new Evil Dead release since 2005s Evil Dead: Regeneration (we don't count those lackluster mobile titles in between). We really can't wait to take on the Kandarian Demon with our friends. We may even stop playing Elden Ring for it.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for March 2022

Let's face it: All the majority of the Co-Optimus-Crew wanted to do in March was play Elden Ring. They didn't care for the Next-Gen-Version of GTA V and the release of Young Souls was all but a foot-note during their quest to become the Elden Lord. The craziness of titles like Strange of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and Tiny Tina's Wonderland also didn't manage to keep them away from Hidetaka Miyazaki's Masterpiece. They even ignored Carby! Carby from Kirby and the Forgotten Land! Can you believe that?!

Play Xbox with PlayStation controllers, Switch controllers, and more!

Brook Wingman XB Review

There are lots of reasons to love Xbox as a platform: the power of the Series X, the affordability of Series S, the huge library of Game Pass, and more. What if you have an Xbox but prefer the PlayStation DualSense controller, though? What about that arcade stick for Switch you have lying around, or a PlayStation Taiko no Tatsujin drum controller – must they go to waste? Not at all! The simple solution is to get a Brook Wingman XB converter for Xbox. This relatively inexpensive accessory lets players use controllers from PlayStation, Switch, and more on an Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, or Xbox 360 console via both USB and Bluetooth.

ROCCAT Kone XP Review

I've been fortunate enough to have a steady stream of PC gaming mice to check out, the last ones have been from ROCCAT. The Kone Pro and Burst Pro have been my daily mice for the last few months and I've been pretty satisfied with the quality and brand overall. The latest entry in ROCCAT's lineup is a return to the mouse that started it all - the ROCCAT Kone XP, a take on the Kone shape which is a derivative of the Intellimouse Explorer design.
