about X hours ago from

Ubisoft have announced a new Rainbow Six title coming next year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC called Rainbow Six Quarantine. By all accounts it looks directly inspired by the limited time co-op event from Rainbow Six Siege called Outbreak.Created by Ubisoft Montreal, and a dedicated new team comprised of developers from For Honor, Ghost Recon, and more, Rainbow Six Quarantine aims to create a chaotic, intense, and unpredictable co-op, PvE experience. Players will band together with two other teammates and storm into quarantine zones around the country in an effort to turn the tide for humanity There's not a ton of detail on the game yet, only the blurb given by Ubisoft above and a teaser trailer that sets the tone which you can see below. We'll be keeping an eye on this as more info develops.

"Night Of The Hangry Horde" Out Now For Overcooked! 2

about X hours ago from

Most video games seem to view zombie hordes as obstacles to be avoided and/or destroyed, but Overcooked! 2 takes a different approach.  In developer Ghost Town Games' eyes, the Unbread are driven by hunger, so why not just feed them?The "Night of the Hangry Horde" DLC introduces a brand new horde mode in which players must work together to feed the Unbread before their castle is overrun.  Coins will still be rewarded for each successful dish, but now players will be able to use those coins to repair the castle and unlock shortcuts around the kitchen.  Sounds like a great (and also stressful) time!Naturally, this DLC adds new recipes, such as a guillotine-based soup and a roasted dinner.  Four new chefs join the fray as well:  the ghost, werewolf, and vampire chefs are making their first appearances, and the Boxhead chef from the original game makes their grand return.  Finally, there are new stages galore.  On top of the eight horde mode stages, the DLC adds nine creepy challenge stages and three hidden Kevin stages.

[E3 2019] - Contra Will Return This Fall With CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS

about X hours ago from

Here's an interesting thing to come out of E3: Konami is releasing a new ContraCONTRA: ROGUE CORPS appears to be a sort of sequel to Contra III: Alien Wars, which you can now enjoy for the first time or all-over again in the Contra Anniversary Collection, as the official background for the game reads "two years after the Alien Wars had ended..." and the game's director is Nobuya Nakazato, who was also the director for Contra III and Hard Corps. Regardless of where it falls within the larger Contra canon, the game looks... pretty... interesting.

[E3 2019] - Relive Your SNES aRPG Days With Collection of Mana

about X hours ago from

During their E3 Direct, Nintendo announced the Collection of Mana was coming to the States that very day (it's available to purchase digitally now). This bundle of the first three Mana games - Final Fantasy AdventureSecret of Mana, and Trials of Mana [aka Seiken Densetsu 3] - was released in Japan back in 2017, and fans of those titles gazed from afar wondering if they'd ever bring it to other territories. Amazingly, they have, and you can play all of these games in English, French, or German (and for Trials, Spanish, too).The big "get" here is Trials of Mana, which was released in 1995 for the Super Famicom but never made its way outside of Japan. It is a sequel to the fantastic Secret of Mana and, prior to this collection, the only way to play it was through some emulation means. Now, anybody anywhere can enjoy this classic on their Nintendo Switch!

[E3 2019] - Luigi's Mansion 3 Will Have A Few Different Co-Op Options

about X hours ago from

Last year, Nintendo revealed that Luigi would once again be busting (vacuuming?) some ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 3. At the time, though, all that was revealed was the game's existence and that it would be out sometime in 2019. During their E3 Nintendo Direct this week, they finally showed off more of the title and announced some exciting ways to play with friends: campaign co-op and "ScareScraper Mode."Luigi's Mansion 3 includes two features from the past two 3DS entries, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Luigi's Mansion (a remake of the original game). The first returning feature is the "ScareScraper Mode" from Dark Moon, which has gotten a little bit of an overhaul. Rather than choosing a game mode, players will play through a set number of floors (the host chooses how many) and will need to work together to complete the objective for that floor. The levels and objectives are randomly generated each time so there will be a lot of replayability. The other returning feature is "Gooigi," who was added to Luigi's Mansion as a way for players to play the story together. Just like in that game, Luigi's Mansion 3 will let two friends team up on the couch (one as Luigi, the other as Gooigi) throughout the entire campaign.
