The Blackout Club Available Now, Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

The Blackout Club leaves Early Access today, so what better time to revisit this cooperative, first-person, stealth horror game? Locke, Mike, and Jason took a trip down spooky memory lane last week to see how things were looking before it hit version 1.0.You can check out our previous stream recap for a little more in-depth explanation of the various game mechanics, not much has changed since then. You're still taking on procedurally generated missions in a fixed area and you're still doing your best to avoid being detected as you complete various objectives. As you complete missions, regardless if you win or lose, you'll earn experience and level up your character. New levels will earn you ability points that can be spent on major and minor powers, and open up new areas of the map to explore (which also makes missions harder and nets you more experience). If you get captured by one of the human foes, you can try to fight them off before you get turned, and if you're taken by "The Shape," then you'll have to have a buddy revive you.

about X hours ago from

The newly released Streets of Rogue has received a launch trailer from the developer Matt Makes Games showing off the insane variety he has stuffed into this tiny rouge-lite. No matter how you choose to overcome your foes - whether it is starting the apocalypse, turning giant to squash them, sneaking past, or just throwing toilets at them - Streets of Rogue will allow it. Streets of Rogue is available now for Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch. While you wait for it to download, check out the aforementioned trailer below.If this is your first time hearing about Streets of Rogue, the game has been described by the developer as “a rogue-lite co-op stealth shooter RPG brawler mega-game. It's like Nuclear Throne meets Deus Ex, mixed with the anarchy of GTA.” This may, understandably, lead to some confusion, but it will all be ironed out a bit by the trailer below.Will you be leaping into the randomly generated streets with your friends, or has the heat of the summer only burned out you need to play games?

Haven Gameplay Trailer

about X hours ago from

The Game Bakers’ upcoming game, Haven, has received a new trailer displaying the environment and relationship focused gameplay of the two tethered characters. While the trailer may start a bit cheesy, what follows only a few seconds in is a slice of what may end up being a deeply interpersonal game between two characters who are controlled by two players. The game has no set release date, but if you like the trailer below you can keep an eye out for the game’s release on Nintendo Switch, PC and PlayStation 4. While little has been said about the mechanics and minute-to-minute gameplay of Haven, there’s a strong Journey feeling with the two lead characters exploring a fantastic environment that seems to glow with magical energy. The Game Bakers have described the title as a place that players can, “Share the journey of two lovers, escaped to a lost planet in a desperate attempt to stay together. Play as Yu and Kay, gliding over the grassland of a shattered planet, unraveling its mysteries to find a way to settle for good.” This seems to imply that the game will be geared towards cooperation with a significant other and that would be a great area for games to explore.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Feeling Marvelous

The Co-Opticrew is awash in new titles this weekend.  While I'm fairly certain that all roads still lead to Destiny 2, it's comforting seeing my colleagues wander through the non-Bungie paths along the way.  That being said, the bulk of these plans still revolve around ever-increasing numbers, so the paths probably don't branch too far into the wilderness.For the next couple days, we'll be testing our tactical prowess, teaching students how to rule the world, and punching nameless baddies.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Catching up in Destiny 2 after traveling all week."
