Overcooked! 2 Co-Op Review

The original Overcooked! was a surprisingly great co-op cooking game, allowing 2-4 local players to team up and bake lots of dishes in a desperate attempt to save the world. Now Ghost Town Games and Team17 have whipped up Overcooked! 2, which adds both online co-op and competitive play to the recipe. As you might expect, the result is a devastatingly delicious cooking adventure.

Check Out Some Gameplay For Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition

about X hours ago from

Can you believe it's been nearly a year since Divinity: Original Sin 2 first graced us with its presence on PC?  I certainly can't, but then again, I've had trouble keeping track of time ever since the "original" Original Sin came out back in 2014.  Fortunately, I've found a nice chronological anchor to moor myself to, as Divinity: Original 2 Definitive Edition comes out on August 31st.First and foremost, the Definitive Edition brings the game from the home computer to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both of which offer offline co-op for two players and online co-op for up to four.  PC players have plenty to rejoice too, though, because the Definitive Edition brings with it a host of free changes to those who already own the "Classic" edition.  Before we get into all that, how about you take a look at some gameplay?As I mentioned above, the Definitive Edition also has enough new and adjusted content to entice even the most veteran D:OS2 players into diving back in.  Larian Studios goes pretty in-depth into most of the changes in the below video, which spans a substantial fifteen minutes.  So, pour a nice cup of coffee and listen in:

Strange Brigade Video Preview

about X hours ago from

Strange Brigade, the four player co-op action/adventure game from Sniper Elite developer Rebellion, is out next week on PC, PS4, and XBox One. Luckily for us, the chaps across the pond have sent us an early version of the game and allowed us to share our experience with you fine folks on the interwebs!Strange Brigade's campy theme feels like that of the 1930s style radio dramas like Magic Island. A strange mix of sci-fi and adventuring that feels part Indiana Jones and part Left 4 Dead. Game play is similar to most third person shooters, though you'll be gathering souls with your amulet when not aiming down the sights of your trusty weapon. There's no cover system or platforming elements, but there are plenty of puzzles and environmental dangers that contribute to the game's missions. With Story, Horde and Score Attack there's a lot to do and see here. Also at play here in Strange Brigade is an unlockable and upgradeable weapon system that includes unique loot found during missions. This game simply feels jam packed with things to do. And it looks great to boot.

X-Morph: Defense Is Headed to the Switch Sans Co-Op Campaign

about X hours ago from

EXOR Studios' tower-defense/top-down shooter hybrid, X-Morph: Defense, is headed to the Nintendo Switch sometime in the next few months. That's the good news. The bad news is it appears that this version will be losing out on some of the co-op features that are present on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. Specifically, the two player couch co-op campaign.The announcement came just prior to this year's Gamescom, which officially kicked off today. While the announcement trailer just shows off what you're doing in the game, it was the language of the press announcement we received that revealed the change in features, as you'll see below.SINGLE PLAYER STORY CAMPAIGN

20XX Co-Op Review

20XX creates a strange problem for itself as the player spends more time in its world. While most games draw from a variety of influences, this one is deeply rooted in just one: Mega Man. However, any player who is a fan of that very particular gaming formula and wanted a few updated and upgraded features, like co-op and level randomization, is in for a real treat.

Jagged Alliance Rage Announced for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Jagged Alliance is back, the first game since the poorly received Kickstarted Jagged Alliance: Flashback, Jagged Alliance: Rage is a new title being published by THQ Nordic and developed by HandyGames.Jagged Alliance: Rage is set twenty years after the first game of the series, following the same set of mercenaries of Ivan Dolvich, Helmut "Grunty" Grunther, Kyle "Shadow" Simmons as they are once again stranded behind enemy lines on a remote island. The game's hook appears to be unreliable equipment. What?In Jagged Alliance: Rage! you are constantly on the brink of breakdown. Badly equipped and outnumbered, it's up to the player to lead their seasoned mercenaries in tactical turn-based missions and to light the spark of a revolution.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Tactical Cookware

I'll be honest, gang.  I didn't think we were gonna make it this week, and yet, and yet, here we are.  Another glorious weekend lies just around the corner, and by golly, we're gonna take advantage of it.  We better take advantage of it, anyway.  I'm holding a quiz Monday morning to make sure everyone had a great time, and if not, they're gonna be thrown in, like, Weekend Jail or something equally terrifying.This time around, we'll be exploring the digital landscapes of Zandalar, Haunted Hills, and... a prison?  Check it out?Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Fortnite. And something tactical...I just don't know what yet."

DLC Arrives Later This Month for Vermintide 2

about X hours ago from

Fatshark's Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been doing quite well for itself since it launched last March on the PC, and just last month on the Xbox One. If you've been enjoying teaming up with your buddies to slay Skaven and the hordes of Chaos, but want to visit a new locale, then you're in luck. "Shadows over Bogenhafen" arrives on August 28 and... well, actually, that's just about all we know.The Swedish developer has promised to reveal the content of the DLC closer to the release date (Gamescom kicks off next Tuesday, so no doubt saving stuff for that), but ideally this DLC will be similar to what was released for the first Vermintide, i.e., a new set of missions in a new area and some new weapons. Given the way they've restructured class progression, it'd be cool to see maybe a new subclass for each of the main characters. I suppose we'll find out soon enough and until then, enjoy this teaser!Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is available on PC and Xbox One, and supports four player online co-op throughout. The "Shadows over Bogenhafen" DLC will be available on both platforms on August 28. Fatshark still plans on releasing the game for PlayStation 4, but no update on when that might be.
