I guess I could hear another tale?

Borderlands 2 Commander Lilith DLC Stream Recap

Last month, Gearbox announced/revealed new DLC for Borderlands 2 titled "Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary." This add-on content provides a bit of a story bridge between the end of Borderlands 2 and the start of the forthcoming Borderlands 3. With not many new co-op releases these days, we decided to hop into the DLC and see how Pandora looks nearly 7 years later...

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Stream Recap and Impressions

The final bit of content for Year 2 of Destiny 2 dropped a few weeks ago: the Season of Opulence. The big attraction this time around for all Annual Pass holders is the new six-player matchmade activity, The Menagerie. This "raid-lite" experience challenges your fireteam to progress through a series of objectives before facing a boss at the end. All of that is pretty fun, but it gets better: your rewards for completing all this is to "choose your own loot."

Sometimes, what is best in life, is to prepare sturdy defenses

Conan Unconquered Stream Recap and Impressions

What is best in life? Well, Nick and Jason decided to see for themselves in Conan Unconquered. This survival RTS from Petroglyph (ex-Westwood devs and the team responsible for the 8-Bit series and Grey Goo) puts players in a slightly different role than most other games in this genre. Rather than building up a base and a massive force to roll over your opponent, you're trying to build up defenses to prevent being overwhelmed by the approaching hordes.

Your viking mileage may vary

Bossgard Stream Recap

There's a new asymmetrical multiplayer game in town called Bossgard and for this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike, Jason, and Nick donned their viking helmuts and viking gear to take on some killer bread! In this 1 v 5 game, 5 players take on the roles of different vikings to bring down 1 big boss. You can have humans in all of those slots, or you can do 5 humans vs 1 A.I. boss (our preference). The title is currently in Early Access on Steam and there's certainly some areas where you can see this is still a work in progress, like the balancing between the two sides, but there's certainly promise.

Revisiting Earthfall Stream Recap

Last summer, we hopped into Holospark's FPS alien shooter Earthfall. The game was very much trying to capture that Left 4 Dead feel but with aliens instead of zombies. There were some interesting ideas, like the 3D printers for guns and setting up defenses, but it also felt like there just wasn't enough there. In the few months after its release, the devs did add some new content, so we figured we should finally hop back in to check it out.

A solid start so far

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Stream Recap

It is the season of the loot shooter, or "shlooter" if you won't (please). Destiny 2 is in the midst of its 6th season of content, BioWare's Anthem is still patching and fixing things, and Ubisoft recently released the follow-up to their offering in the genre, Tom Clancy's The Division 2. We've only begun to get into this sequel, but we're enjoying what we've played thus far.

Everyone's favorite cool uncle is back

Destiny 2 Joker's Wild Stream Recap and Impressions

The 6th season of content for Destiny 2 kicked off a couple weeks ago. Dubbed the "Season of the Drifter," Annual Pass owners get new content via "Joker's Wild." This includes two new modes to play (Gambit Prime and Reckoning), a new bounty along with some lore via the "Invitations of the Nine," a new exotic (everyone's favorite/hated hand cannon, Thorn), and a new questline tied to swearing your loyalty to the Vanguard or the Drifter. As most of that content has now been made available, we decided to hop back in and check out how all of it stacks up.

A game for those who want it

ToeJam and Earl: Back In The Groove Stream Recap

For this week's "Let's Play Co-Op", Mike and Locke are checking out ToeJam and Earl: Back In The Groove, a Kickstarted title that seeks to bring back a franchise that many Genesis fans remember fondly. Like so many of these types of projects, the aim is to make something that successfully hits that nostalgia center of the brain and presents something that is as good as you remember it being (which isn't always the same as the reality of how it was).

God Eater 3 Stream Recap and Impressions

The latest entry in the God Eater franchise, God Eater 3, is something of a departure from the previous games. Bandai Namco changed the developer - Shift was responsible for the first two titles and Marvelous Inc, who worked on Soul Sacrifice, was brought on for this one - in order to "bring in a breath of fresh air" and rework many of the systems that they felt had become overly complex. The result is, in my opinion, the best God Eater game to date and the one that is the most approachable for newcomers (if you're ok with some anime).
