Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Is Headed To Nintendo Switch

These days, classic games are constantly being remastered and reproduced for players to enjoy on the current generation of consoles.  In spite of the occasionally overwhelming flow of these types of titles, it's always nice to see hallmarks of the gaming industry like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 come back to the fore.  Given that the acclaimed Sega Genesis title likely introduced a number of our readers to the concept of co-op gaming, I'm sure there's a sizable community that's excited for the chance to relive that magic.Thanks to the SEGA AGES series, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be available on the Nintendo Switch on February 20th.  As you're probably aware, the sequel to the original Sonic the Hedgehog introduced the ability for a second player to join in on the fun as Tails.  Looking back, this may not have been the ideal implementation of co-op gameplay, but it was certainly a great starting point.On top of the co-op mode, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 also added another future staple of the franchise in the "drop dash" technique.  This SEGA AGES edition also implements a time trial mode with online rankings, as well as the ability to play as Knuckles the Echidna.

EvilvEvil Is your Vampire Co-Op Shooter

about X hours ago from

Vampires! Guns! Co-Op! Black and red! Today Enad Global 7, a newly formed entertainment group has unveiled their first project set to be fully explored at GDC 2020.  EvilvEvil is a co-op vampire shooter that will bring a setting to co-op shooters that hasn't been explored. EvilvEvil is a co-op first-person vampire shooter with a player-directed, continuously updated storyline. Its cast of characters will bring ultracool vampires with a heavy dose of attitude and other monstrosities. Not a ton to go on, but the teaser trailer looks promising. Could this be Left 4 Dead with vampires? The trailer points to the player actually fulfilling the vampire role, so, that's something entirely different.  Official platforms haven't been announced but it's a safe bet we'll see a PC version at a minimum.

about X hours ago from

There's just a month and a half left before we, The Gamers, will be graced with the latest and greatest in musou technology.  Bandai Namco is hard at work placing the finishing touches on One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4, but while we wait for the next installment of their immensely popular franchise, let's take a gander at some of the characters it will be adding.First up, we have Whitebeard (or Edward Newgate to his friends).  Per the game's website, Newgate "wields the power of the Tremor-Tremor Fruit, the abilities of which are considered powerful enough to destroy the world."  His special ability revolves around, you guessed it, tremors, which leave a path of destruction in their wake.Next is an old Whitebeard Pirate commander named Marco.  Ol' Marco "is a Mythical Zoan user, which is said to be rarer than users of the Logia-type Devil Fruits."  To gain an advantage over his opponents, he can transform into a flaming phoenix and make a combination of ground and aerial attacks.

HyperX Pulsefire Raid Mouse and FURY Ultra Mouse Pad Review

about X hours ago from

At the end of my last HyperX mouse review for the Pulsefire FPS Pro, I said: “The only other thing I could wish for is another couple of buttons to make the FPS Pro a little more MOBA and MMO-friendly, but that’s honestly a minor quibble.” Well, it seems like HyperX heard my plea, since the new Pulsefire Raid is seeking to fix my final quibble with the Pulsefire line of HyperX mice, a line that I’ve seen consistently iterate and grow over the past few years.To date, there are five HyperX mice, all under the “Pulsefire” line. While they all share a similar starting point, each of these five mice seeks to provide a point of personal preference for gamers who are looking for specific features. For example, the Pulsefire Dart is geared towards the wireless mouse crowd while the Pulsefire Surge appeals to gamers who want a more symmetrical mouse shape and/or a greater LED presence. The Pulsefire Raid is for gamers who want more programmable buttons on their mouse, which is the group I fell into when writing my last Pulsefire mouse review. While all previous Pulsefire mice have had 6 or 7 programmable buttons, the Pulsefire Raid boasts 11.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Art Of The Prank

As you may be aware, a few members of the Co-Opticrew have taken on the herculean task of spawning hatchlings of their own, then raising them to adulthood.  Luckily, it appears the Co-Optibrood are being taught well, at least for this weekend.Whether it's through bumbling thieves, rampant goats, or very naughty geese, some of our staff will be training their progeny in the fine art of mischief.  A stolen sandwich here, a swiped keycard there, and the next thing you know, they'll have their diploma in trickery.  I would wish them well in person, but I seem to have misplaced my car keys...Elsewhere, we'll be poking our heads into space, bringing crossbows to a gunfight, and lying in bed.  Check it out!

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected Is Coming To The Switch

about X hours ago from

It's a tale as old as time.  Gangster becomes president.  President gains superpowers.  Superpowerful president defends the earth from aliens.  You've heard it a thousand times, and you'll hear it once more when Saints Row IV: Re-Elected makes its way to the Nintendo Switch on March 27th.The "Re-Elected" version of the 2013 sandbox hit was made specifically for the current generation of consoles and has now made the full circuit with its release on the Switch.  It features a startlingly large amount of DLC (25 expansions in total) and includes the two larger, story-focused packs:  "Enter the Dominatrix" and "How the Saints Save Christmas".As evidenced in our review, the Co-Opticrew quite enjoyed Saints Row IV when it first released back in 2013.  Alongside the wealth of additional "Re-Elected" content, the Switch version reportedly provides improvements to the game's two player online co-op.  Personally, I'm slightly wary of intensive sandbox games getting released on Nintendo's portability-focused console, but it sounds like this version will be well worth looking into.

Dying Light 2 Delayed

Dying Light 2 Delayed

Techland, developer of the original Dead Island and the well-received 2015 zombie-smashing/parkour hybrid Dying Light, took to the web recently to announce that Dying Light’s sequel, Dying Light 2, has had its release date pushed back from ”Spring 2020” window. Unfortunately that was the extent of the information provided, as the developer only went on to say that more information will be announced “in the coming months.” Would-be zombie killers will have to sit patiently and await further word on why the delay took place and when the game will see the light of day.While the sequel was originally announced for Spring of 2020, the delay could push the game into the release windows of the next generation of gaming consoles; Microsoft’s Xbox Series X is slated for a “holiday 2020” release, and Sony’s PlayStation 5 will likely arrive sometime within that window as well. Oddly enough, the original Dying Light was set to debut on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 before those versions of the game were scrapped in favor of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC versions we know today.Has the wave of recent delays got you down, or are you ok waiting for the games you love?
