Rainbow Six Extraction Gets Pushed to January 2022

Rainbow Six Extraction, the co-op title that started as a spin-off mode for the popular competitive FPS Rainbow Six Siege, has gotten pushed back a little bit. During E3 last month, Ubisoft announced that the game - which was previously known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Rainbow Six Parasite before that - would launch on September 16 this year. A few days ago, though, Ubisoft announced that they would need just a little more time to get it done.

Taito Egret II Mini Arcade to Feature 'Bubble Bobble' and More Co-Op Classics

In December 2021, Sega and a company called Zuiki released the Astro City Mini, a miniature arcade cabinet featuring 37 classic Sega arcade games. Now to be outdone, Taito recently announced its own mini arcade cabinet: the Egret II Mini. Scheduled for release in March 2022, the Egret II Mini will include 40 classic arcade games, 10 of which feature 2-player local co-op. Even better, the optional Paddle & Trackball Game Expansion Set adds 10 more games and a very special controller. That’s a lot of classic co-op goodness!

Just think about all the splinters.

Door Kickers: Action Squad Busts Its Way Out Of Early Access

Door Kickers: Action Squad originally forced its way onto PC back in November of 2017.  Since then, it's puttered around Steam's Early Access program, presumably waiting for someone to figure out the best CQC puns to use in its release announcement.  The good news here is that Action Squad got a full release just a couple days ago.  The bad news is that the release trailer has eschewed all those sweet, juicy puns in favor of actual information on the game's playable characters.

Recent Patch for Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action Brings Big Changes

Fans of the site may recall the handful of times we've dipped into a couple of Ironward's Solstice Chronicles titles; notably The Red Solstice and Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action. The former is an action/RTS title that allows up to eight players to team up and fight off a horde of monsters, while the latter is more action-oriented top-down shooter with two player couch co-op. It also recently received a big update that fixes a number of issues and makes some pretty big changes.

Video game concepts can occasionally be tough to unpack, requiring many lengthy videos explaining the intricacies of how the game works, what its goals are, and how best to approach it.  That's... not quite the case with Solstice Chronicles: MIA, a forthcoming twin-stick shooter.
