Dying Light's Hellraid DLC Impressions and Stream Recap

I'll be honest, when Hellraid was announced it was easily one of my most anticipated co-op games. Heretic and Hexen were some of my all time favorite shooters and this looked like a solid spiritual successor. Hellraid has taken a turn though, instead of a full fledged release (at least for now) - it's merely a concept in a piece of content for Dying Light. So does it scratch that itch?

Spitlings Co-Op Stream Recap and Impressions

After playing the tutorial and a few missions, we weren't quite sure what to make of what we were seeing. Spitlings' first impression with the Co-Optimus crew was one of uncomfortableness and uncertainty. Why would someone make a game about spitting on things? What possessed someone to design these little spitting nightmare creatures? But soon as we piled together in an online co-op session of three - we started to feel more and more comfortable with our bodily fluid swapping co-op platforming...

Deep Rock Galactic Co-Op Stream Recap and Impressions

Deep Rock Galactic has been in Early Access since early 2018. And while early access doesn't always yield a positive result, DRG looks to break that mold as it officially breaks out into public release. The crew has had various experiences with the four player co-op game and we thought it was a good time to give some fresh impressions since we last looked at it in 2018.

Sea of Thieves - Our First Adventure on the Haunted Seas

Sea of Thieves may have been around since early 2018, but Co-Optimus has more or less not been tempted by it's golden bounties. The risk of invading player pirates have turned us off of these types of games - from both a coverage and interest perspective. You'll notice the DB entries for Sea of Thieves mentions "griefing" as a piece of information. But if our first session is any indication, the risk of being ganked feels pretty low and the emergent gameplay is worth the price of admission.

Minecraft Dungeons Co-Op Stream Recap and Impressions

Minecraft is the top selling video game of all time, starting at its roots as a small indie game all the way to the franchise being purchased by Microsoft. It spawned an entire genre of video games and continues to be insanely popular among families of gamers. Spin-offs were inevitable, the first was a proper "story" game in Minecraft Adventures and now players will get an action rpg flavor in Minecraft Dungeons.

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened Launches Today, Stream Recap with Impressions

The original Dungeon Defenders was launched in 2011 and went on to be a huge indie game success in a time when indie games were just beginning to hit their stride. The game had a sequel in 2017 that changed the formula and attempted a free to play model, but wasn't met with the same critical acclaim or success. Now Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is throwing its helmet into the ring, bringing the series back and returning to the originals roots.
