The Kickstarter for the spiritual successor to Star Control ends on Friday, May 17.

The Free Stars: Children of Infinity Kickstarter Has Ended Successfully (Updated)

In the long-ago days of the early 1990s, a sci-fi RPG called Star Control II came out on PC and 3DO, and it knocked the socks right off of anyone who played it. Now, the creators of the series are working on a modern sequel called Free Stars: Children of Infinity. This will be the first installment in the series to feature 2-player online co-op, an early stretch goal for the fundraising campaign. The Kickstarter will end on Friday, May 17 at 11 PM PT, and before that happens, it needs more support in order to fund the addition of voice acting. Let's make it happen, co-op lovers!

No more fake-outs! EDF 6 will arrive on PlayStation and Steam this summer.

Earth Defense Force 6 Gets a REAL North American Release Date

The wait for Earth Defense Force 6 has been a long one. In fact, some folks say that you could stretch the delay between the Japanese and Western releases of EDF 6 around the earth at least twice. I mean, the game arrived in Japan in August 2022, and we still don't have an English version. That injustice will finally be rectified when EDF6 arrives on PlayStation and Steam in North America and Europe on July 25 of this year. Are you ready to save the earth from the aliens' attack, recruits?

Double Dragon Gaiden Now Has Online Co-op and 'Sacred Reunion' Update

When Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons arrived in July of last year, we were blown away by its exceptional stage design, fast and simple gameplay, and large array of unlockable characters. The only thing it really lacked was online co-op, but that has now been rectified. Today's "Sacred Reunion" DLC (which is really a title update) adds online co-op, Survival and Versus modes, and three new unlockable characters. It's a big update, and it's free, baby.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Online Co-op and More Coming in Free 'Sacred Reunion' DLC on April 4

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons from Secret Base and Modus Games was one of the best beat 'em ups to come along in 2023, featuring nonlinear game design, a variety of unlockable characters, and an excellent soundtrack. The only missing element was online co-op. That will finally change, thankfully, when the much-requested online multiplayer update arrives on April 4, along with three new characters and more. Double Dragon fans are in for a treat!

Two classic Star Wars games return with both split-screen and online co-op.

Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection Is Now Battling It Out on Consoles and PC

In the early 2000s, the Star Wars: Battlefront series captivated gamers with its combination of ground and air/space battles and large-scale multiplayer. Some years after that, EA confusingly released two new games with the same titles. Adding words to subtitles is hard! Thankfully, the newly released Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection from Aspyr Media has its own distinctive words to let us know that it's a collection of the first two Battlefronts in one convenient package. The collection is out now on consoles and Steam.
