Surgeon Simulator Out Today on Nintendo SwitchJason Love

The title originally debuted on PC back in 2013 and gained a lot of attention thanks to streamers. Wacky hijinks are always good viewing. It eventually made its way to the PlayStation 4, where local co-op was patched in, then to a variety of VR platforms, and now, to the Switch. Like the PlayStation 4 version, local co-op play is supported on the Switch version so you can work together to perform delicate surgery with imprecise controls.

I'll go ahead and say at the start of all this that while there aren't a ton of story spoilers in any of these videos, we do play through the entirety of the second campaign mission in the first video, talk about some story stuff in the second video, and then show off the Dreaming City in the fourth and fifth videos. If you're interested in thoughts/impressions on Destiny 2: Forsaken without seeing/knowing anything more than has already been revealed, then I'd skip those videos for now.

All of this additional content has since been bundled into the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove package, which will be getting a physical release on April 9th, 2019.  The digital version is already out and currently contains the base game, the two available story expansions, and some additional goodies.  However, the third and final expansion, "King of Cards", will also be released on the same day, meaning it will be included in the physical version and available as a free download to those who currently own the digital version.

Galaxy Champions TV adds a few features to the formula to bring the gameplay to 2018. The most notable changes are upgradeable weapons and character leveling. After you complete each room you'll be given a choice of three character or weapon upgrades. During the few runs I tried I got everything from character speed and health to weapon range and power.

I'll be honest, the game doesn't leave one with the best first impression. The tutorial mission and its mandatory boss fight may serve as a functional introduction to the underlying mechanics and action, but they definitely don't highlight the best parts of the game or just how crazy things can get after you sink your teeth into it for a bit. Once you get over the initial power trip of "I'M GOING TO MAKE A GUN THAT SHOOTS GUNS AND ALSO ROCKETS," there are a lot of interesting things you can do with the tools at your disposal. For instance, is gravity being a real drag and pulling down the shots of your heavy guns? Slap an anti-grav mod on that puppy and show Isaac Newton what you think of his laws.

The announcement came just prior to this year's Gamescom, which officially kicked off today. While the announcement trailer just shows off what you're doing in the game, it was the language of the press announcement we received that revealed the change in features, as you'll see below.

I was a big fan of the first Overcooked! For me, it was the co-op game of the year in 2016 and the only thing I could see it needing to make it even better was online co-op. Sure enough, the sequel includes that feature and also allows for combo co-op, so you can continue you yelling at friends on the couch while also yelling at ones that are further away. In addition to that, Overcooked! 2 also introduces the ability to throw ingredients to other players (no cooked ingredients, cookware, or plates, though). This allows for even more chaotic cooperation as you'll be hucking things back and forth between two moving rafts or balloon platforms, or just to laugh at a cucumber hitting your friend in the back of their head. Oh, there's also an emote wheel now, too, which I'm sure you or your friends won't abuse...
