Brazilian Co-op Platformers 'Goroons' and 'IIN' Migrating to Xbox in August

Back in 2018, Brazilian indie developer Epopeia Games released a pair of puzzle platformers on Steam: Goroons and IIN. Both games support local co-op, but they look and play quite differently from each other. Console gamers will now have the chance to experience Epopeia's brand of cooperative gameplay when Goroons and IIN launch on Xbox on August 5, both as solo releases and as a bundle.

'Coridden' Steam Demo Lets Players Become the Monsters They Defeat

There are lots of Diablo-looking action RPGs in the world today, so how do you make your new game stand out? Local co-op is a good step, but co-op's no rarity either. What if the players could turn from guys into animals and ride each other around, though? Now we're talking! That's Coridden, an upcoming Steam game from Aftnareld, which is totally the name of a company, so don't even ask. The game won't be out until next year, but you can try the demo right now.

Fort Triumph Preparing to Triumph on Consoles on August 13

After enjoying a period of Early Access, the Steam version of All In! Games' Fort Triumph launched in full early last year. A turn-based tactics game, it won us over with its environmental activity and decent local co-op.

Try the Samurai before you buy, and don't ask why.

Samurai Warriors 5 Demo Now Available on Consoles and PC

Samurai Warriors 5, the latest installment in Koei Tecmo's long-running feudal Japan-based hack and slash series, launches on July 27. Waiting can be tough, though, especially given that fans have already been waiting seven years since Samurai Warriors 4 (we won't count the iterations on 4).  To tide us over until then, Koei Tecmo has kindly released a free trial version on all major platforms. Making it even more of a must-download, progress in the demo will carry over to the full game.

Puzzle Platformer 'Toodee and Topdee' Landing on Steam in August

Toodee and Topdee is the first Steam release from 2-man indie developer Diet Zribi. A challenging and colorful platformer, the game involves switching back and forth between a flat 2D perspective and an angled 2.5 view. Each of the protagonists can only move around in one perspective or another, making the game perfect for local co-op play. It will arrive on Steam on August 4.

How to Unlock the Robot in the 'Mauer der Toten' Zombies Map of COD: Black Ops Cold War

The latest Zombies map to be added to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is called 'Mauer der Toten,' meaning "Wall of the Dead." The Black Ops Cold War Zombies maps are surprisingly story-heavy, and this one sees the members of peacekeeping force Requiem forced to build a warhead to close the Dark Aether portal that was opened in Berlin by traitorous scientist Aleksandra Valentina. We played several co-op games on 'Mauer der Toten,' and we even found out how to unlock the robot, Klaus.

Q-Yo Blaster Co-op Review

The shoot ‘em up genre has been around for almost as long as video games have existed. Whereas many shmups are deadly serious, there are also a fair number of humorous ones like Parodius, Cho Aniki, and Freedom Finger. Another such game has just arrived on Xbox after first launching on Steam and Switch: Q-Yo Blaster from Team Robot Black Hat ...

Co-op Pinball RPG 'Rollers of the Realm: Reunion' Heading to PC in 2022

Look, pinball RPGs are pretty much a dime a dozen these days. You can't throw a rock without hitting some pinball game that features archetypal fantasy heroes knocking around fantasy environments, casting spells, and thwarting skeletons and goblins and such. Still, Rollers of the Realm: Reunion promises one extra ingredient that will make it stand out in the crowded pinball RPG genre: local co-op. Now we're talking!

It's a short and pretty good 16-bit style co-op beat 'em up, so why not give it a try?
