Three NES co-op classics for just five bucks a pop

Co-op brawler classics River City Ransom and Double Dragon series now available on Xbox

Earlier this year, Arc System Works released the Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle for modern consoles and Switch, bringing heaps of NES beat ‘em up goodness to Sony’s console. It looked like Xbox owners would be left out of the fun, but that has thankfully changed today. Seven of the games from the Retro Brawler Bundle are now available as $5 individual downloads on Xbox One. At last, Microsoft fans can play Double Dragon II, Double Dragon III, and River City Ransom in local and online co-op! While the Xbox Store page does list Double Dragon as having co-op, since this is the NES version of the game, it actually does not offer cooperative play - instead it's a two player versus mode.

Darksiders: Genesis Stream Recap and Impressions

The Darksiders franchise got a new entry last week on the PC (console version is coming February 2020) with Darksiders: Genesis, an isometric, twin-stick shooter-ish, action/adventure game. While the gameplay has changed a bit from the previous third-person action titles, there's a lot that's familiar and the new format works. Best of all, you can play with a buddy online or on the couch!

The world turns on War and Strife, uh huh

Darksiders Genesis Release Date Revealed

The Horsemen will return this winter in Darksiders Genesis. The fourth game in the Darksiders franchise changes things up a little bit in two ways. First, rather than a third-person action game, Darksiders Genesis runs a little more in the top-down, twin-stick shooter vein, though it definitely still utilizes action game mechanics. Second, and more importantly, it supports two player co-op! Team up with a buddy and kick some demon butt as War and Strife.
