about X hours ago from

Co-op puzzle platformer fans, rejoice!  The acclaimed (and gorgeous) Trine trilogy will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch this Spring in both physical and digital formats.Trine Enchanted Edition is already available on the Switch, of course, and Trine 2: Complete Story will be available in a digital format on February 18th. Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power will follow as well, presumably sometime between the 18th and the full bundle's release in Spring.  If you don't mind waiting, all three can be had for $39.99, which is a pretty strong deal for that much co-op content.Speaking of, all three titles included in the bundle will offer a co-op campaign for up to three players in both online and local formats.  Players will follow the tale of Zoya, Amadeus, and Pontius as they traverse through a chaotic, ruined fantasy world.  Each entry features physics-based puzzle solving in a really impressive visual format.  If you like co-op and/or platformers, it's pretty strongly recommended on our end.

PC Servers for Blacklight: Retribution Are Shutting Down Next Month

You may recall a certain free-to-play FPS that came out 7 years ago (7 YEARS?!) called Blacklight: Retribution. I know, I know... in video game terms, we might as well be talking about the Sega CD. Anyways, developer Hardsuit Labs recently posted that they will be shutting down the servers for the PC version next month, after which you'll no longer be able to play the game. As often seems to be the trend these days with these sort of "games as a service" getting shut down, all premium items in the PC store will be free so you can just go nuts.The two big hooks to Blacklight are its "Hyper Reality Visor" that lets you see through walls at the expense of putting your gun away and being vulnerable for a bit, and the "hardsuits" you can call in to mow down foes with its chaingun. While much of the game's player-base was built around the competitive aspects, there was a co-op mode, called "Onslaught," that was added a few years ago. This mode falls into the "Horde mode" vein with up to four players online teaming up to survive 10 waves of foes while also completing non-combat objectives.
