Save Geodia with... "assistive co-op"... oh...

Sparklite Now Available on Consoles and PC

Red Blue Games' Sparklite is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. The game is touted as an action-adventure title with rogue-lite elements, which are all fairly accurate descriptors based on my time with it thus far. Two player couch co-op is supported in the game, but it's worth noting that the second player is (literally) relegated to a "helper bot" role.

Kicks off the full MCC release on PC, and just the latest addition for Xbox One

Halo: Reach Will Be Added to Master Chief Collection on December 3

Back in March, we reported that Halo: Reach would be added to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection sometime this year. With just a few weeks left, 343 Industries is fulfilling that promise and Halo: Reach will arrive on the PC and Xbox One on December 3, 2019. On the PC side, this marks the first Master Chief Collection title to arrive on that platform, with the other games in that bundle arriving over the course of the next year.

"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" was a cautionary tale

[XO19] - Get Smol and Survive in Grounded

The other co-op game that was announced/revealed during Microsoft's XO19 was a bit of a surprise, considering the developer. Obsidian, who just released the popular The Outer Worlds RPG, is shifting gears a bit with their next title, Grounded - a game where you have to survive in a backyard after being shrunk to the size of an ant. I mean, I guess every other iteration of a survival game has been done at this point?

Help those friendly plants by beating up those not friendly plants

[XO19] - Build a Village and Defend It With Friends in Drake Hollow

Microsoft's XO19 - "A global celebration of all things Xbox" - kicked off earlier this morning in London and there were a number of new games shown off, including a couple new co-op titles and at least one that could be. The first of these was Drake Hollow, an "action village building" title from The Flame in the Flood developer The Molasses Flood. Details are still sparse, but the announcement trailer shows you befriending some plant creatures, building a village, and then defending it from evil plant creatures.

Developer Changes Stance On Free DLC Amid Financial Hardships

PAYDAY 2 To Continue With Paid DLC And Some Free Content

In a quick but drastic shift, Starbreeze has declared it will continue development on 2013’s PAYDAY 2 through both free and paid content, which is in direct contrast to their previous ideology of winding down support for the title and providing any future content for free as part of their “Ultimate Edition” of the game.

Ghost Recon To Receive Support And Repairs

Ubisoft Lays Out Roadmap For Ghost Recon Breakpoint Content And Updates

The Ghost Recon series goes back to 2001, but due to lackluster sales of the most recent entry in the series, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft has been prompted to reevaluate their development and support for the series. While the previous entry, 2017’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, currently holds a score of 79 on Metacritic and received critical praise, Ubisoft may have been a bit too eager to put out a sequel to a “live” game that was receiving new content into this current year. Yves Guillemot, CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft, even highlighted this in a recent financial update to investors.. In response to the lackluster review and sale combination, Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon development team issued a lengthy statement laying out the new support plan.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Festival of the Lost and Pit of Heresy Stream Recap

As you've probably seen from our past few "Weekend in Gaming" posts, many of us can't get enough of the Shadowkeep expansion for Destiny 2. Last week, Bungie kicked off the annual "Festival of the Lost," which is basically the in-game version of Halloween, as well as the new three player dungeon, "Pit of Heresy." We decided to hop into both of these to get into the spooky spirit... a few days after Halloween.
