Team Up With Friends to Man A Space Station in Undercrewed

Team Up With Friends to Man A Space Station in Undercrewed

I loved Subset Games' FTL, and the only thing about it I didn't like was that I couldn't bring in some friends to help crew the ship and save the galaxy. I'm guessing I wasn't the only one that felt that way because Undercrewed, a new co-op title that's currently in development, seems to be drawing some strong inspiration from not only FTL, but also Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.The blending of those two titles isn't too far off from what appears to be the core gameplay. You (and up to three of your buddies either locally, online, or a mix of the two) design your own space station, choosing the general layout and where certain key ship functions (shields, maneuvering, weapons, etc) are placed. The placement of those things are important as you'll have to "man your stations" when faced with enemy ships. You don't want to have run all the way across the station to get to the shields at a critical moment in a firefight! There also appears to be a skill tree that branches into four different paths (Captain, Engineering, Weapons, and Medical) so players can spec into certain roles/classes.

Steredenn: Binary Stars Update Brings Local Co-Op Shooting to Xbox One and Steam

Steredenn is a shoot ‘em up with Roguelike elements released way back in 2015. It has always been a single-player shooter, but that recently changed with the free ‘Binary Stars’ update. Thanks to this surprisingly great update, the Xbox One and Steam versions of Steredenn now support 2-player local co-op (just like the Nintendo Switch version)!The free Steredenn: Binary Stars update adds the following content to Steredenn:The Co-op option is available immediately from the main menu. There’s no drop-in, drop-out co-op, so you’ll have to start out in either single-player or co-op and stay that way until you complete your run.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Boarding Games

The Co-Opticrew has quite a few plans to engage in gaming of the "tabletop" variety this weekend, and I simply couldn't be happier.  There are few things in this world that can top a nice night spent with friends, drinks and snacks in hand, as you huddle around a kitchen table and find out the fate of your adventuring party/warring countries/what-have-you.  I'll be demanding nothing less than a full report of these escapades on my desk by Monday morning.Naturally, video games of the co-op variety are also on the schedule.  We've got cult-ridden wilderness, vermin-ridden countrysides, and loot-ridden dungeons all lined up.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Fortnite still has its hooks in me. And Far Cry 5 is a ton of fun. So it's the two F's."

Mod for the First Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Game Adds

Ghost Recon Wildlands isn't he only Ghost Recon title to see some new content. The PC modding community often extend the life of many classic games by adding graphical or UI features that many players wish the game included to begin with, or adding new content altogether. ApexMods has released a 30 Gb mod today, titled "Heroes Unleashed," for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon that adds new physics, new AI behavior, and "hardcore realism" to the game.As a quick note before going any further, the mod is entirely free to download (10 Gb in size, and unpacks to the 30 Gb mentioned above), but you do need to own the game in order to use it. The title can be purchased via Steam or GOG.com.The primary focus of the mod appears to be to bring the physics, A.I. behavior, and damage a bullet inflicts on a human body closer to a "real-world experience." This doesn't replace the existing campaign or multiplayer modes in the game, but adds to them. Here's what the official mod website has to say about the mod, where you can also download it:

More Original Xbox Games Will Be Playable On Xbox One This Month

In more great news from Microsoft, 16 original Xbox games are being added to the Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility list. All of the titles either need to be purchased and downloaded through the Xbox Marketplace or played with a physical copy in the Xbox One. The first batch of 8 games is set to arrive on April 17th and the later 8 on April 26th. While a number of the games feature some sort of multiplayer, it’s the April 26th release of Star Wars Battlefront (2004) and Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2005) that feature the Co-Op we’re most excited about.While the more recent Star Wars Battlefront II saw a revisioning in 2017 by EA (which our Nick Puleo gave a Co-Op score of 2 out of 5 here) the original included a number of timeless modes that were a blast in Co-Op. Ranging from Galactic Conquest to Hero-only fights as well as wonderful classes from Droidekas to Jetpack Clone troopers, seeing this classic game come back to life means the Force (as well as understanding what their users want) is strong in Microsoft.The full list of games being brought into Backwards Compatibility can be found in the official announcement here but below we have bolded the ones that support Co-Op.
