We'll be seeing plenty of action in VooDolls, an upcoming Steam game from French developer SideRift and Tate Multimedia.

Colorful Roguelike 'Shoulders of Giants' Heads to Xbox and Epic on January 26

It's always fun to ride a mount in games. Indie studio Moving Pieces Interactive knows this, and so they've build a whole game around it called Shoulders of Giants. In this third-person shooter/Roguelike, gamers get to play as gun-wielding frogs who ride around on the shoulders of giant mechs. It's a promising premise, especially since ...

The fantasy board game adventure is cross-play between PC, VR, and the upcoming PlayStation versions.

Demeo Graduates from Steam Early Access, Is Also Coming to PlayStation 5 in February

In 2021, Resolution Games released Demeo, a VR game, to Steam Early Access. The game soon received a non-VR edition called Demeo: PC Edition which finally graduated from Early Access (and received a new campaign) in December. Demeo is a "cross platform cooperative adventure" that looks and plays like a fantasy-themed board game. Now that the full game has been released, I jumped at the chance to try it out in both 2-player and 4-player online co-op.

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection Co-op Review

Despite a few gaps in releases now and then, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been a gaming mainstay for over 30 years. It started with Konami’s first NES game in 1989, and then things really blew up with the arrival of the arcade game that same year. TMNT: The Arcade Game showed the world that the Ninja Turtles and co-op go together lik...

TMNT: Shredder's Revenge Gets Custom Games Feature and New Video Filters

When it comes to 2022's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games from Konami and Dotemu, it seems like the two titles are always trying to outdo each other. One game gets a trailer; the other game gets a trailer. TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection gets an update; TMNT: Shredder's Revenge gets an update. While today's Shredder's Revenge update isn't as earth-shattering as the one The Cowabunga Collection just got, it does add a cool Custom Game feature that will make Arcade mode a lot more fun, plus some video filters for people who want the game to look less pristine.

The update adds 2-player online co-op to the Super Nintendo version of TMNT: Turtles in Time as well as numerous new options and enhancements to other parts of the collection. It's going to be a cowabunga-cool Christmas for Turtles fans!

River City Girls 2 Out Now on All Platforms and Features Online Cross-Play Co-op!

When we interviewed WayForward about River City Girls 2 just ahead of launch, the developer let slip that their new beat 'em up RPG would feature cross-play. Now the game has launched (in all regions) at last, and it does indeed feature cross-play co-op! Even Xbox and PlayStation gamers can team up together. That makes River City Girls 2 an even more exciting proposition, to say nothing of the huge world, engaging story, fine-tuned combat, and 4-player local co-op.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Gets Free 'Trail of Treachery' Level on Xbox

While Fatshark recently released the amazing Warhammer 40,000: Darktide on PC, that game's predecessor, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 still has plenty of life left. Case in point: the free "Trail of Treachery" level that arrived on PC in November has now emerged on Xbox as well. The new level takes place in the snow and is quite cool indeed, but the game's 99.79 GB file size is becoming quite a challenge for the limited storage capacity of the Xbox Series consoles.
