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.

Spidersaurs Physical Editions Up for Preorder at Limited Run Games

WayForward's Spidersaurs is a charming run-and-gun shooter that launched digitally last year. The game combines the excitement and challenge of Contra with a colorful Saturday morning cartoon style. It also features 2-player local co-op, a helpful feature when blasting away at hordes of dinosaur/spider hybrids. Collectors will soon have a chance to join in the fun now that Limited Run Games has opened preorders for both standard and collector's editions of Spidersaurs.

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.

We'll have to wait a little longer for one of the year's most anticipated beat 'em ups.

River City Girls 2 Arrives in Japan Dec. 1, North American Release Still Coming in 2022

If you asked about my two most anticipated co-op games of the year, I'd answer with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide and River City Girls 2. The PC version of Darktide launches this week, thankfully, but things are slightly more complicated for the Misako and Kyoko, the tough girls from River City. WayForward has confirmed that the Japanese and Asian versions of River City Girls 2 will launch on December 1, but the North American release is due later in 2022. That's cutting it close!
