We Were Here Is Free On PS4 And PS5 For A Limited Time

Just like that, co-op fans have been blessed with another gift from the puzzle-y heavens.  The We Were Here series, which currently contains a trilogy of mind-bending titles, has released its first episode on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.  Better yet, it's completely free until February 22nd.The first episode (aptly titled We Were Here), has presumably been offered for free as a way of drumming up interest in its two sequels (We Were Here Too and We Were Here Together), both of which will be coming to Sony consoles on February 23rd.  While each episode grows in both scope and complexity, all three center around a gameplay loop of solving puzzles through pure communication.  Often, both of the games' two players are stuck in separate rooms which offer information on how to solve a certain puzzle.  The act of completing said puzzle and escaping its accompanying rooms relies on both players conversing over a set of walkie talkies and relaying the information available to them.

Valheim Co-Op Stream Recap and Impressions

about X hours ago from

Survival games are all the rage these days, with the trend starting many years ago with Minecraft, we've seen the genre absolutely explode across all gaming platforms. We've had dinosaurs, zombies, and even cannibals as a setting for these games. Now with a new game from developer Iron Gate we have Vikings. It's Valheim an up to 10 player co-op game now in early access on PC.While the game has just hit, there's a lot to do here. The big hooks for Valheim outside the traditional survival tropes (chop trees, build/upgrade structures) are big. For one you are given a set goal of summoning mythical god like creatures and defeating them. Each of these have set goals you must achieve before you can cast this mythical spell. Second the game is extremely open with the ability to build small villages and even boats as you progress through the world.Working as a group of three we managed to setup a small camp, accomplish the first few goals, and summon the first boss - all in about an hour or so. The game's leveling system reminds me of an Elder Scrolls game and the graphics while simple, to have a certain style to them that makes the game look really great at times. All in all, we were extremely impressed with what we saw, and for an early access title only a few days old there's a lot of potential.

Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Wireless Headset Review

By my count, we are approaching close to 100 headsets evaluated on this site in our 13 years of existence. Needless to say we've seen all makes, models, and varieties - from wired stereo headsets to fully wireless surround sound monsters. I'm at the point now where I know exactly what features I want to hear in a pair of cans for my ears. And let me tell you - the perfect headset still doesn't seem to exist. In my latest search I stumbled across the recent release from Turtle Beach designed for next-gen consoles and PC. The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 are a fully wireless headset with premium features in mind. Spec wise you have 50mm drivers with a response of 20Hz to 22kHz. There's a flip up mic with omni-directional pickup pattern, and the ear cup cushioning is made from soft synthetic leather with a memory foam base layer. The headband is reinforced with metal despite a mostly all plastic design elsewhere. Finally you should get a solid 20 hours of time with the Stealth 700's before needing to be charged via USB-C. In my testing I actually got 18.
