Second Extinction Co-Op Impressions and Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

Second Extinction, the three player co-op dinosaur action survival game just hit Xbox Game Pass this month. But the Co-Opticrew felt it was time to dive in and check out the Steam version, which has been in early access since late last year. Last night's stream didn't quite go as planned, but boy, we had some fun.Second Extinction has players choosing from a handful of characters that have different abilities based on their class. Troopers are your traditional soldiers with a balance of abilities for both dealing damage and support. Enforcers are your tanks, providing cover and soaking up damage. Operatives are weaker, but can deal in some special attacks like a friggin orbital laser. Luckily for us we had a balance of these last night.The missions take place on a giant open map with dynamic objectives popping up and giving players waypoints to hit. Our goal was to find drop ships located in hangars. Those hangars were loaded with dinos. We shot the dinos with bullets. And lasers. And grenades. Perhaps that was what was most impressive to me overall, the game's combat is chaotic but gloriously so. I never felt like I was flailing, and in fact, at one point I basically said - "I'm playing DOOM" while backpedal strafing with a shotgun. It just felt good.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April, 2021

about X hours ago from

After the insane month that was March full of new releases, the publishers and developers allowed us coop-fans at least a bit of rest in April with "only" around 35 games hitting the store fronts - many of them smaller indie titles with interesting concepts and/or visuals. Definitely worth to take a look down below at which gems you may have missed.And our database? Well: Another month, another 210 new entries both upcoming as well as from the distant past. And if it seems suspicious to you that quite a few of those entries start with the letter "B" don't think too long about it. Our Database Master assures us that this is just a coincidence and that he most definitely isn't working through another list he found with co-op games we are missing in alphabetical order.
