Call of Duty: WWII Co-Op Review

Call of Duty: WWII Co-Op Review

Call of Duty: WWII returns players to the original theater of war that made the series popular, World War II. Both the original and the highly popular sequel, Call of Duty 2, put players into famous battle, but it was the second game’s d-day invasion mission, as players stormed the beaches of Normandy, that drew players into the game on a console. Like that game, Call of Duty: WWII starts right off with one of the most brutal battles of the time.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Fine Assortment

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Fine Assortment

The Co-Opticrew has quite the varied lineup scheduled for this weekend.  In fact, the only games that seem to be getting the double-dip treatment are Divinity: Original Sin 2 and Super Mario Odyssey.  To be honest, I think that's gonna be pretty hard to avoid, at least until we finish up all the combined content they have to offer in, say, 2023.  Get this, we're even diving into *gasp* mobile gaming, if for no other reason but to scratch a certain tactical RPG itch.Of course, we also have Nazi shooting simulators, cowboy shooting simulators, and... uh, fictional Nazi shooting simulators lined up.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Call of Duty: WWII - both the campaign and zombies!"

Happy Dungeons Will Grant Double Experience Until The End Of Time

about X hours ago from

It looks like the folks at Toylogic have had it with people moaning about XP events.  Out of the kindness of their hearts, they've been granting the occasional limited-time XP multiplier for their latest release, Happy Dungeons, but that's (presumably) just not enough.As a result, they've decided that the game's Story Quests and Infinite Dungeons will grant double experience points for... well, forever.  It's an interesting decision, and possibly the only "infinite" limited-time event, but hey, if it makes the community happy, then who am I to judge?Happy Dungeons offers four player co-op in both local and online formats.  In it, you and your pals work together to crawl your way through dungeons filled with enemies, mazes, and most importantly, loot.  It's been out on Xbox One for a little over a year, but it arrived relatively recently for PlayStation 4.  You can see the launch trailer below.

SMITE Shadows Over Hercopolis Stream Recap, Code Giveaway

Earlier this week, Hi-Rez added a new co-op adventure to their F2P god battler, SMITE. We decided to dive in and check it out, despite our lack of skill or knowledge about the game. We've also got a few codes to giveaway that will net you the "Ultimate God Pack" (which means you'll be able to play all currently available gods, and all future ones as well) and add 10k gems (the premium currency) to your account.It's pretty amazing/impressive that a studio can crank out new modes/content like this for a title that, ostensibly, is geared around its 5v5 PvP mode. This isn't the first time they've done this, either, and while their "Adventures" aren't always co-op in nature, it's cool that there are some different things that are tossed in to attract folks into the game.While Nick, Locke, and myself didn't have the best luck in even making it to the first boss, we still had some fun trying things out.

Final Year 2 DLC Arrives Soon for Rainbow 6 Siege

about X hours ago from

In a recent blog post, Ubisoft acknowledged that it has been nearly two years since their launch of Rainbow 6 Siege, but their plan to keep heaping out content releases hasn’t changed. The post covers their latest, Operation White Noise, but perhaps the most exciting bit is a brief “We will have more news to share on the exciting things to come in Year 3...” early on, meaning that this may just be the start.The new Operation White Noise adds three new operators; an attacker, a defender and a GROM operative who has few details but according the the blog post is “known for their resilience and bravery”. In addition to the characters, there is a new map that takes place in the Seoul skyline along with new weapons.Rainbow 6 Siege saw its initial launch in 2015 alongside giants such as EA’s Star Wars Battlefront and Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3, but rather than release sequels as both titles mentioned are doing this year, Rainbow 6 has kept a constant flow of updates and additions. Our full R6S review can be found here.
