Check out the tunes that power Joe and Mac's latest caveman-versus-dinosaurs adventure.

Microids Records Releases the New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja Soundtrack

As the release of  New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja fast approaches, things are looking good in the music department. The game itself is a gorgeous HD remake of the classic co-op action-platformer in which a pair of heroic cavemen battle evil cavemen and dinosaurs. Microids, New Joe & Mac's publisher, has recently launched its own record label, Microids Records, with the New Joe & Mac soundtrack among the label's first albums. Other freshly-released soundtracks include Syberia 2, Syberia 3, Arkanoid Eternal Battle, Horse Tales, and a Flashback tribute album.

Arcade1Up Opens Preorders for Killer Instinct PRO Series Arcade Cabinet (with Battletoads)

Arcade1Up has released numerous 3/4-scale arcade cabinets over the years, with my favorite being the Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder cabinet. Even the coolest cabinets like that one, however, only feature 17-inch monitors. That's what makes the announcement of the Killer Instinct PRO Series Arcade Cabinet so exciting. The Pro cabinet includes a 19-inch screen, SuzoHapp stick and buttons, and improved speakers. It will feature not just both Killer Instinct arcade games, but also the arcade, NES, and Genesis versions of Battletoads!

Improving my favorite headset

Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX Review

Last year I reviewed the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 and called it "quality comfort." In fact I've reviewed a handful of other headsets since then and still go back to the Stealth 700s as my favorites. Turtle Beach is back with a minor update this year that includes several claimed improvements with battery life leading the charge. This is also the first fully cross gen version of this headset that covers just about any platform out there - which is an improvement all to itself.

Crossplay co-op coming to PlayStation for the first time in the Borderlands series

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands: CrossPlay, Endgame, and Season Pass Details

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, Gearbox and 2K's quirky fantasy-themed Borderlands spinoff, is set to debut on March 25. We've got plenty of new details to share about the game, but the most exciting one has to be that the PlayStation version of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands will support crossplay with other platforms, something that Borderlands 3 on PlayStation does not do at present. Xbox and PC will support crossplay as well, so crossplay co-op adventures are in the cards for everybody.
