All three of us went pretty hard into the PlayStation 4 version of Monster Hunter World, but then fell off before Iceborne came off and - with the exception of Locke - didn't make the switch to PC. Mike has put a little bit of time into Rise on the Switch, but with the impending release of the game on the PC and the expansion - Sunbreak - due out sometime Summer 2022, this seemed like a great time to hop in and check out how the game fares on the PC. So far, it seems like it's a pretty straightforward port of the Switch version with some higher res textures and 4k support; which is probably all that's needed.

Steam Version of 'Earth Defense Force: World Brothers' Ditches Region-LockingPaul Acevedo

The update that fixed the Steam region-locking issue in World Brothers actually appeared a few days ago, but we only just had the opportunity to test it. Before, my Malaysian co-op buddy couldn't see online games hosted in the US. I could still directly invite him to a game, but the region-locking was a killer for matchmaking in general. If random people can't see your online lobby, they can't join it, after all. After the update, my international friend can simply browse the lobbies and find my game without having to wait for an invite. Random players do join our games more frequently as well.

Earth Defense Force games have traditionally been M-rated affairs, if only because the giant insect and frog enemies spray lots of goopy blood when shot. Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the new spin-off game from Yuke’s and D3 Publisher, is a more family-friendly entry that trades in low-budget but realistic visuals for colorful and bloc...

EDF: World Brothers takes place in a parallel universe in which everything is made up of Minecraft-like blocks called voxels. One day, the various enemy factions from previous EDF games team up and attack Voxel Earth, splitting it up into pieces. Only the EDF can thwart the alien invaders, but they’ll need help to do it. Thankfully, World Brothers features over 100 playable characters to unlock, including EDF classes from previous games and many more. It’s the EDF dream crossover game that fans never knew they needed!

The new Earth Defense Force: World Brothers game may look like a "Minecraft" but it's anything but. The game still maintains the over the top campy action of the series, but layers on thick layers of "videogame." It feels almost like playing a classic game with the fanfare music and sound effects combined with the 8-bit style graphics. Okajima-san said that the team spent weeks in pre-development getting the size of the voxels and the position of the cameras just right to showcase the destruction and scale with the new art style, and it definitely pays off.

These games are available anywhere, but if you’re looking for a unique co-op gameplay experience, there may only be one way to go: indie co-op games.

Alongside the base game, the "Gourmet Edition" will contain four DLC packs adding new levels, items, chefs, and recipes.  It'll also include a fifth cosmetic pack offering a few extra options for the game's goofy chefs.  There's a whole lot of content in here, so check out the official descriptions for a better understanding:

While "Rise of the Phoenix" focused on the X-Men (specifically Gambit, Cable, Phoenix, and Iceman), this forthcoming DLC will bring to the fore everyone's favorite Marvel supergroup not named "The Avengers".  If the title is anything to go by, they'll be taking on their perennial foe, Dr. Doom, in one form or another.

The first bit of DLC for the games will arrive sometime in June 2020 and is titled "The Isle of Armor." This will add a new open area to the game (similar to the "Wild Area") and focus on "growing as a trainer" under the tutelage of a former champion called Mustard. (... really?) As a part of that, you'll gain a new Legendary Fighting-type Pokemon, Kubfu, that can evolve into Urshifu, which has two different styles that appear to be tied to which version of the game you have. Additional Pokemon will be added to the game, including Bulbasaur and Squirtle, so you'll have any more of them to catch, and there will be new clothing and accessory options.

The new content adds two new chefs to use (Present Head Chef and Reindeer Chef), five new recipes to cook/bake, new enemies in the Horde Mode, and five "festive kitchens" that are makeovers of kitchens from each of the paid DLC expansions ("Campfire Cook Off," "Night of the Hangry Horde," and "Carnival of Chaos"). If you've got your platform of choice to auto-update your games, you'll have this content already and can go to "Extras" in the main menu, then "Seasonal Updates" to access it. If you don't auto-update, then you'll need to download the update first before you play.

The "Multiplayer Pack" will include two parts, though both seem to include the same types of content. The first part arrives April 30, 2020, and will include three new mini-games for the competitive ScreamPark Mode and three new outfits for Luigi to wear in the ScareScraper mode with "matching floor themes and themed ghosts." The second part arrives July 31, 2020 and will be more of the same. Both parts must be purchased together as part of the "Multiplayer Pack" bundle, which is available for $10. On the one hand, it's a bummer they're not adding anything significant to the co-op mode; on the other, CHECK OUT LUIGI'S ROCKING BOUFFANT!!!!

The DLC also includes new levels for the "Gauntlet" mode, which was added as part of the previously released "Curse of the Vampire" DLC, and new outfits for different characters. Much like the previous DLC, you'll only be able to get "Rise of the Phoenix" if you purchase the $20 Expansion Pass. On the plus side, you'll not only get this DLC and the "Vampire" DLC, but the Fantastic Four themed "Shadow of Doom" DLC that is set to release sometime Spring 2020.
