In case you're wondering what Extra Life is all about, let me explain. Extra Life is a charity started by gamers that benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals all across North America. Visit their site and they'll probably locate a hospital in your area. Within the walls of these hospitals are the best doctors, nurses, and other medical experts performing what my simple brain can only describe as miracles. They're helping kids survive the worst birth defects, cancers, injuries, premature birth, and other ailments. They're not miracles, of course, but it takes a lot of medical science and experts to care for these little ones, and that doesn't come cheap.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for September, 2021Christoph Licht

What did you say? There's nothing for you on the list? Too many re-releases of some more or less obscure arcade games from way back when no one cares about? I wouldn't call Diablo II an obscure arcade game but okay - I guess you are very hard to please, imaginary reader. So there's nothing more for me to do here other than to tell you and everyone else reading this to check out the lists below. I'm still sure that there's something to play for everyone. And if not this month, then for sure in our database which saw the addition of another 126 titles this month, totalling up to now 9.500 entries. 10.000 here we come!

The mic itself sit's a solid base with a few controls for switching pattern, controlling output volume to connected headsets, and adjusting the gain. There's also a little icon on the front that indicates when you are Live or Muted. There's a giant glowing ROCCAT logo on the front and some subtle LED lighting behind the built in pop filter that indicates the volume.

The controller is fairly standard otherwise in terms of design, it's very close in shape to an Xbox Series controller, though it might be slightly bigger by a hair. The palm grips on it are a soft rubberized feel instead of plastic. Most of the triggers have a strong plastic feel to them, but also a nice texture so your fingers won't slip.

Of course we are not complaining. Even with that little bit of space in the calender there are still way too many co-op games released each week (or even day) for any one person to reasonably play. So instead take a look below at what you may have missed in July, call your friends over and get your game on. Yes, we know it is Summer and it is all the rage to go outside. Just do it like our Database Manager, who added another 190 entries to the database this month, and close the blinds. That way no pesky sun can interrupt our precious play time.

DARIUSBURST: Another Chronicle EX is a side-scrolling shoot 'em and the latest game in Taito's long-running Darius series. The actual arcade game this one is based on utilizes a dual-monitor setup. PlayStation and Switch don't support dual monitors, so Another Chronicle EX presents the large gameplay field in a letterboxed format. The game is totally playable like this, but I sure hope a Steam version of Another Chronicle EX with dual monitor support gets released someday.

Rumors of a 4K-ready Nintendo Switch have been swirling for a few years now, rumors that became something of a tornado just before E3 this year. E3 2021 came and went, though, with no announcement of new hardware. Today, Nintendo has finally announced the next model of Switch, the Nintendo Switch (OLED model),  whose primary enh...

In my infinite quest to find the perfect PC gaming headset, I've gotten pretty close to perfection, but always came up short.
