Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

Square-Enix's flagship MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, has been through its share of ups and downs over the past 11 years, including an entire reboot three years after its release. We've touched upon the title here and there throughout that time between Tally's MMO Co-Opportunities articles and the occasional stream of it, but this week we're giving it a little bit more of its due as Jason and Mike sit down for a nice relaxing chat about this particular behemoth.Final Fantasy XIV has received a fair amount of attention and praise these past few years due in no small part to the game's writing and character development; particularly in regards to the latest expansion, Shadowbringers. There's a lot of merit to that. Having spent some of the past 7 months playing through all of the main storyline quests of A Realm RebornHeavensward, and Stormblood, I can say that the overall narrative has been the biggest factor pulling me through.

Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem Will Get Creepy, Kooky, and Co-Op in September

about X hours ago from

The Addams Family, a pretty good 2019 animated film, is due for a sequel this October. The 1990s live-action movies enjoyed some odd video game adaptations, so why shouldn't the new movies as well? That's where The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem from PHL Collective and Outright Games comes in. Heading to consoles and Steam on September 24, Mansion Mayhem will be the first Addams Family game to feature local co-op.The plot of The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem hasn't been revealed in detail yet, but it will be an original story in which the titular family has to save their mansion from an unwelcome visitor. That place is always in trouble! To do so, our heroes will embark on a 3D platforming adventure through the many varied locales of their mansion.Playable characters include Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, and Pugsley. Sorry, Uncle Fester! Each character has a unique special ability, including Gomez's Mazurka Saber (from the animated film, but it fits with the live-action movies well enough) and Wednesday’s pet octopus, Socrates.

'Have a Blast' Will Bring Co-op and PvP Blasts to Switch and Steam in August

about X hours ago from

The goal when playing video games is nearly always to have a blast. That goal is usually implied, but there's nothing wrong with making it explicit. That's exactly what Have a Blast, an upcoming arena-based party shooter, dares to do. It promises at least one blast to both Switch and Steam players when it launches on August 26.Have a Blast is a colorful arena-based shooter that somewhat resembles an advanced version of Asteroids. Hey, the founder of this site made a game kind of like that! Anyway, this one features five playable ships that each have a unique ability and fifteen different arenas in which to blast bad guys or each other. Bots can be enabled in multiple modes.Have a Blast supports 4-player local co-op. The Steam version can also play online via Remote Play Together. 

Battle Hordes of Feudal Foes in Samurai Warriors 5, Out Now on Consoles and Steam

about X hours ago from

It has been three years since Dynasty Warriors 9 and Warriors Orochi 4 graced consoles and a whopping seven years since Samurai Warriors 4. In that time, we've seen numerous licensed "Warriors" titles, but the wait for a mainline release has stretched on. That wait has finally ended now that Samurai Warriors 5 has arrived on consoles and PC.Never played a Samurai Warriors title before? No worries - Samurai Warriors 5 is a soft reboot of the series. All of the Samurai Warriors games take place during the Sengoku period of Japan's history, though they focus on different parts of the 148-year period. This game starts in 1546, focusing on the lives of Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi, with the story ending after the HonnĊ-ji Incident in 1582.The characters have undergone a visual redesign, and the playable cast has been scaled back from 55 in Samurai Warriors 4 to 37 characters here. This should make for a more focused game and a perfect entry point for new players. Although the game isn't enhanced for Series X|S or PlayStation 5 yet, it does run at a fluid 60 FPS on those consoles, making for a great gameplay experience.

'Simple Fish Adventure' to Bring Co-op Fish-Flopping to Steam This Month

about X hours ago from

Silly physics-based games like Fight Crab and I Am Bread can be a lot of fun. Watching people flail around in said games is sometimes even better than actually playing. We wonder whether that will be the case for the upcoming Steam release Simple Fish Adventure from LostVolBytes. The whole game is about flopping around on land as a fish, and it even features cooperative flopping!Once again, this is a game about moving around on land as a fish, an animal known for its inability to survive outside of water. That sounds like a recipe for humorous situations, don't you think? Players will have to navigate a variety of obstacles in addition to avoiding seagulls, the natural predator of fish.Simple Fish Adventure features:
