Darksiders: Genesis Stream Recap and Impressions

The Darksiders franchise got a new entry last week on the PC (console version is coming February 2020) with Darksiders: Genesis, an isometric, twin-stick shooter-ish, action/adventure game. While the gameplay has changed a bit from the previous third-person action titles, there's a lot that's familiar and the new format works. Best of all, you can play with a buddy online or on the couch!

Games And Remakes On The Horizon

Rebellion Purchases The Bitmap Brothers’ Portfolio

Rebellion, the studio behind Strange Brigade and the Sniper Elite series, has acquired the game portfolio of The Bitmap Brothers, a British game development studio with titles dating back to the 90’s, like The Chaos Engine, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, and Gods. Titles in this acquisition will likely be receiving sequels or remasters, as Rebellion has expressed their appreciation of the games’ legacy as well as their intention to move forward with their newly acquired intellectual properties.

Sparklite Now Available on Consoles and PC

Red Blue Games' Sparklite is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. The game is touted as an action-adventure title with rogue-lite elements, which are all fairly accurate descriptors based on my time with it thus far. Two player couch co-op is supported in the game, but it's worth noting that the second player is (literally) relegated to a "helper bot" role.

The world turns on War and Strife, uh huh

Darksiders Genesis Release Date Revealed

The Horsemen will return this winter in Darksiders Genesis. The fourth game in the Darksiders franchise changes things up a little bit in two ways. First, rather than a third-person action game, Darksiders Genesis runs a little more in the top-down, twin-stick shooter vein, though it definitely still utilizes action game mechanics. Second, and more importantly, it supports two player co-op! Team up with a buddy and kick some demon butt as War and Strife.

Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Now Available

After six weeks in Early Access, Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The title follows in the footsteps of the Garden Warfare games, but is now a "live" game, meaning that there will be frequent content updates, weekly/daily challenges, and more (many of which were already in Garden Warfare, they're just codified now). At launch, the title supports PvE co-op in two modes: "Free-Roam Regions," and the wave-based survival mode, "Garden/Graveyard Ops."

Paid Content To Be Added To “ScareScraper” and “ScreamPark” Modes

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Will Have Paid DLC

If you have been waiting for Luigi’s Mansion 3 October 31st, 2019 release date to come around, you may, like the rest of us, have been expecting Nintendo to announce any and all updates they could. However, Nintendo instead decided to keep in line with the game’s themes and be as quiet as a ghost as they placed a subtle announcement that there will be paid DLC that will add “new content” for the  ScareScraper and ScreamPark modes after launch. This announcement was placed on their website without any word via an official press release, Nintendo Direct, or even so much as a text message - talk about being “ghosted”.

In Case You Missed It: Knights And Bikes Out Now

Knights and Bikes, the Foam Sword game that was fully funded back in 2016 and subsequently picked up by Double Fine Presents as the publisher, has finally come to PC, Linux, Mac, and PlayStation 4.
