New Content and Changes for Rogue Stormers on PC

about X hours ago from

Though it's been a year since it's somewhat rocky release, Black Forest Games hasn't given up on their run-n-gun roguelite, Rogue Stormers. A recent update, "The Rise of Hindenbork," has not only added new content, but also made some slight tweaks to the way experience works when playing with a friend locally.When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

Housemarque's Nex Machina Will Have Local Co-Op

about X hours ago from

While the next Housemarque title, Nex Machina, was announced this past December at the PlayStation Experience, it was unsure if they'd follow the trend of their past games and include co-op. Fortunately for us, the Finnish developer has cleared things up and announced that this title will have two player local co-op.The game is touted as being inspired by Robotron and Smash TV, the latter of which is one of the all-time favorite titles of our founder, Nick Puleo, so that's certainly promising. The former is likely due to Housemarque teaming up with Eugene Jarvis, the developer behind Robotron: 2084, for this one. It seems like an ideal pairing, considering how much Housemarque has been bringing those classic shooters into the modern age with all kind of splendid special effects.Nex Machina will be released on PC and PlayStation 4 on June 20, 2017. It will support two player co-op locally throughout the main game mode.

Destiny 2 Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

Bungie and Activision's live stream event for Destiny 2 just wrapped up and there were some interesting new details revealed for the loot shooter. The title will have new worlds to explore and new loot to find, sure, but it also has a rather innovative idea about how to ensure all players can experience all that co-op content.In Destiny, if you wanted to do the Nightfall Strikes or the Raids, and didn't have a dedicated group of friends you could call upon, then you were out of luck. Bungie has come up with a way to try and make all of that content accessible to everyone with the inclusion of in-game Clans and a feature called "Guided Games," which will match up solo players with friendly clans to complete those very activities. The example given during the event was that if you want to check out the new Raid, but don't have a group of six friends, then you could hop into a Guided Game with a group of folks from a clan that's willing to help players through. Who knows, maybe you'll all hit it off and you'll find some new friends with whom to play. I had some pretty positive experiences using things like DestinyLFG and even the forums to play through that stuff in Destiny, so this is a solution for which I'm cautiously optimistic.

Shovel Knight Local Co-Op Patch Live on Consoles and PC

The Shovel Knight (now updated to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove) co-op patch we heard about earlier this year has finally arrived. Now everyone can enjoy the joys of swinging a shovel with a friend!Yacht Club Games announced on Monday that the local co-op patch is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii U. With the way auto-updating works these days, chances are the patch has already been applied to your version of the game. The developer even posted up a handy little Co-Op Manual to answer those important questions like "What campaigns support co-op" (only the main Shovel Knight campaign) and "Will co-op come to more campaign in the future?" (not at this time). Unfortunately, this local co-op functionality is only supported on the console/PC versions and it is not available for the 3DS or Vita editions.Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii U.

about X hours ago from

Come November of this very year 2017, there will be a new sheriff in town: Cowboy Captain America! While his affiliations with Hydra aren't known at the moment, what we do know is that he is one of the multitude of new characters you can play in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 when it comes out later this year.Warner Bros and TT Games announced the new LEGO title earlier this week and even have a little teaser/trailer that lets you know that the real video to tease the game will be revealed at a later point in time (next Tuesday, to be exact). This time around, you'll be facing off against Kang the Conqueror as he attempts to muck about with both time and space. There's a new four player multiplayer/competitive battle mode that's being added and an open hub world area known as "Chronopolis." It's unclear if that four player capability will transfer over into the co-op side of things for the campaign, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it.LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is slated for a November 14, 2017 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will come out sometime "this holiday season" for the Nintendo Switch.
