Sonic Mania Plus Physical Game Details

about X hours ago from

After the success of the initial release, Sonic Mania is receiving some new life with the Plus DLC, as well as a physical release, today. In the newest developer diary, the team talks about giving the Encore mode new life using existing assets, and designing characters that fit into the game world both with their aesthetic and their movements.While details on the characters that Plus is including are exciting, the physical edition keeps a few tricks up its sleeve, literally. A SEGA Genesis reversible cover comes with the physical edition as well as the 32-page art book, which can be seen in the video below at 4:27. If you are a long-time Sonic fan the physical edition is probably just what you need.Sonic Mania was originally released digitally in August 2017 to near universal acclaim. It features the co-op that made the Sonic games of generations past such a blast while changing it up with new environments and, now, new characters. The Plus mode releases on July 17th as a $5 add-on DLC to the original game, or you can pick up Sonic Mania Plus as an “all-in-one” physical copy that also includes the goodies detailed above for $29.99 on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

GTFO Leaning Into the Horror With New Shadow Enemy

GTFO Leaning Into the Horror With New Shadow Enemy

Listen, if I ever found myself in a position where I was part of a crew that was like "let's go into this spooky place and get some loot" and then I was attacked by LITERAL SHADOWS... assuming I survived the encounter, I'd head to the exit and drop 20,000 lbs of explosives behind me. I guess the crew in GTFO is more level-headed? Or greedy?During E3, folks got to spend some hands-on time with 10 Chamber Collective's forthcoming co-op FPS game, and the title sounds like it's got way more of a horror vibe than I initially thought it would. That idea comes across even further with the reveal of a new enemy players will have to face, the Shadow. These buggers can't be seen directly and you'll only be able to spot vague outlines when they move through light sources (like your flashlight); meaning you will absolutely be randomly firing into dark places every time your motion detector gets even the tiniest blip on it. It's the only way to be sure.GTFO still has no release date, but it looks like it's shaping up to be one heck of an exciting co-op adventure whenever it does make its way to the PC.

Co-Op Delayed For PC Version of MOTHERGUNSHIP

Co-Op Delayed For PC Version of MOTHERGUNSHIP

Some sad news for folks who were looking forward to crafting weapons with friends in MOTHERGUNSHIP next week. While we knew that online co-op would be delayed in the console versions by a month, it seemed like the PC version would launch with it. Unfortunately, it will be delayed there, too, until August.Developer Terrible Posture Games announced via their development blog that implementing co-op into MOTHERGUNSHIP was one of their big goals as it was a highly requested feature for their previous title, Tower of Guns. Ultimately, though, they were faced with a choice: delay the launch to get the co-op right, or pull it and release it later? Considering they were already planning on patching it into consoles after launch, doing the same for the PC just made sense. The good news here is that the online co-op mode will be added to PC and consoles at (roughly) the same time, and it will also be a free update.For now, we've marked the game as "co-op removed" from our database until it gets patched in.

Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

It's been a year almost to the day since we last checked out Space Hulk: Deathwing. At that time, the game had received just a few of the updates that would eventually be bundled together in the "Enhanced Edition." That version was released this past May for PC and PlayStation 4 so we decided to hop back in and see how things were looking these days in the grim dark future (aka 2019).If you remember looking at/checking out Space Hulk: Deathwing back in 2016 when it was first release on PC, here's a quick recap of the big changes/updates to this version:All of those enhancements really do make the co-op portion of the game feel like a whole new affair. There's something you can sink your teeth into now. It's not quite at Vermintide 2 levels, but it's close. I really hope there's a sequel to this game and that Streum On is able to improve upon the (now) solid framework established with this Enhanced Edition.

Roguelike Action Platformer 20XX Available Now on Switch and PS4

about X hours ago from

Last year, Batterystaple Games brought their vision of a "modern Mega Man X" game to life with 20XX on the PC. Today, that vision is getting some new life as it makes its way onto the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and tomorrow on the Xbox One.The title features two player couch or online co-op throughout the main game mode, with each player controlling one of the two initial characters: Nina and Ace. Both characters have their own unique movesets and weapons, and additional characters can be unlocked by completing certain objectives in the game. The console versions of 20XX will also include two characters that were released as DLC on the PC, Hawk and Draco.20XX differs from its inspiration by utilizing procedural generation to create its levels and incorporating rogue-like elements. Essentially, you only have one life to complete all the stages and beat the bosses. There will be some upgrades you earn along the way, but there only apply to that run. If you die, you'll lose all of those augments and go back to HQ. Fortunately, you can spend some special currency (Soul Chips) to unlock new upgrades that will become available in future runs, and even purchase a few to start off your next attempt.
