Georifters Gives A New Perspective On Platforming

Georifters, a puzzle platformer focused on bending the world around you, is headed for release in the very near future.  This first effort from Taiwanese developer Busy Toaster hopes to twist the 2D platforming genre by allowing players to shift the very ground they stand on.  As they solve puzzles and progress through the game's Adventure Mode, players will also be unlocking costumes, skills, and characters for a fully customizable experience.

Three NES co-op classics for just five bucks a pop

Co-op brawler classics River City Ransom and Double Dragon series now available on Xbox

Earlier this year, Arc System Works released the Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle for modern consoles and Switch, bringing heaps of NES beat ‘em up goodness to Sony’s console. It looked like Xbox owners would be left out of the fun, but that has thankfully changed today. Seven of the games from the Retro Brawler Bundle are now available as $5 individual downloads on Xbox One. At last, Microsoft fans can play Double Dragon II, Double Dragon III, and River City Ransom in local and online co-op! While the Xbox Store page does list Double Dragon as having co-op, since this is the NES version of the game, it actually does not offer cooperative play - instead it's a two player versus mode.

StarCrossed is Volleyball Meets a SHMUP in a Magical Girl Setting

Sometimes I like to be pleasantly surprised when I read about a game that I wasn't following. StarCrossed from Contigo Games seems to fit that bill. The SHMUP genre of the game caught my eye, but when I read about its co-op focus I was really intrigued. I may not be a huge fan of the "magical girl" aesthetic, but I'm willing to give it a try.

Locke and Nick are totally Drift Compatible

Biped Stream Recap - More Curse Words Than Legs

Last night's Twitch Stream had Locke and Nick taking on the family friendly co-op game called Biped, and somehow made the entire stream very family unfriendly. The game puts players into the legs of a pair of robots as they traverse environments and timing puzzles together. Sounds easy in practice, but the game requires careful coordination and patience as we quickly learned.

Classic co-op fun.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Is Headed To Nintendo Switch

These days, classic games are constantly being remastered and reproduced for players to enjoy on the current generation of consoles.  In spite of the occasionally overwhelming flow of these types of titles, it's always nice to see hallmarks of the gaming industry like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 come back to the fore.  Given that the acclaimed Sega Genesis title likely introduced a number of our readers to the concept of co-op gaming, I'm sure there's a sizable community that's excited for the chance to relive that magic.

Sky Rogue Is Out Now On Xbox One

Sky Rogue, the hottest procedurally generated flight combat game around, is now available to anybody with one of those fancy Xbox Ones.  The title was originally released on PC in July of 2015, and in 2018, the folks at Fractal Phase were gracious enough to bring the game's roguelite sensibilities to living rooms worldwide via the Nintendo Switch.  Now, thanks to its release on Microsoft's flagship console, that availability expands even further.
