Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

Truly a farewell to arms

Final Expansion for Enter the Gungeon Available Now

The folks over at Dodge Roll have been working on their bullet hell dungeon crawler, Enter the Gungeon, for over five years now, and last Friday, they finally declared it as D-O-N-E done! (At least as far as new content is concerned, bug patches will still happen.) The final free DLC expansion, "A Farewell to Arms," was released for all versions of the game so if you've been looking for excuse to get back into this one, now seems as good a time as any.

Remnant: From the Ashes Looks Like a Pretty Fun Co-Op Shooter

Gunfire Games' next title is a "third-person survival action shooter" that appears to blend looting, shooting, and crafting with a little bit of Dark Souls. Titled Remnant: From the Ashes, the game was first announced last July, but IGN recently go some hands-on time with it to show off the cooperative nature. I'm definitely liking what I'm seeing so far.

Version 2.0 of Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr Is on the Way

Officially released last June on the PC and a couple months later on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Neocore Games' action-RPG, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, has gone through two seasons of free content that added new enemies, increased power/level caps, and opened up new subsectors to play. Through all of this, the developers have been gathering feedback and working on a much larger update to bring a number of quality of life (QoL) changes to the game.

Physical Toys Are Done for Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Ubisoft posted a pretty honest and straightforward blog post last week about the state of their "build-your-own" spaceship shooter, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The initial launch of the title was somewhat surprising as all of the "toys-to-life" games of the past few years have seen a steep decline, but Ubisoft seemed to account for that by offering the option to use physical or digital content in Starlink. It appears, though, that that still wasn't enough to help with the sales as Ubisoft stated they've "made the decision to not release any additional physical toys for the Spring update and in the future."

QC Games and Breach Are Shutting Down

In a surprise announcement yesterday, QC Games announced that their studio will be shutting down, as will their action-RPG Breach. It's not clear just yet what the plan is for sunsetting this title, but the servers are still up and running if you wanted to get one last game in before it goes, though there's a certain caveat to that (see below).

Title will no longer be a Bethesda.net exclusive

New Details Emerge About Wolfenstein: Youngblood

At last year's E3, Bethesda and MachineGames revealed Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the next entry in the modern Wolfenstein franchise. The rebooted series has been very well received and folks were eagerly awaiting the next game, but this one was a bit surprising. Rather than focusing on BJ Blazkowicz fighting his way through Nazis in the 1960s in an alternate history, Youngblood takes place in the 1980s and focuses on his twin daughters: Jess and Soph. What's more, the game features two player co-op instead of being single-player only.
