New Co-Op Game Releases - September 14 Edition

about X hours ago from

A little delayed this week on word of the new co-op releases; it's fair to blame Destiny 2 and trying to get "Raid ready." Just because I'm loot shooting, though, that doesn't mean the co-op releases stop! This week we've got Pro Evolution Soccer 2018Divinity: Original Sin IIRayman Legends: Definitive Edition, and more!Bloody Zombies (PC and PlayStation 4) - supports up to four players online, local, or combo! A side-scrolling brawler with a unique mechanic where one of the four players can participate while wearing a VR headset (for the PS4 and PC versions at least). The person wearing the VR headset is able to look around the environment more and see what's in store for the group. The Xbox One version does not support the VR headset, and will be releases next Thursday, Sept. 21.Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! (PC) - supports two players locally. Cook delicious dishes and manage a restaurant. The all new split screen co-op feature allows you to play through the entire game with two players, with the ability for players to drop in and out during your progress within the game.

The Latest ArmA 3 DLC Takes A More Humanitarian Aim

about X hours ago from

ArmA 3, a game known for its hardcore simulation of military combat, is shifting its focus slightly with its latest DLC, "Laws of War".  Where much of the base game centers around the moment-to-moment action and tactical decisions required in a firefight, "Laws of War" hones in on the effects of those firefights on both civilians living in the area and humanitarian workers attempting to repair the damage done afterward.The tone of the new content is based on the Geneva Convention, as well as a few other related documents.  In it, players will work under the banner of a new faction, IDAP, and assume the role of one of their workers as they journey through the locations of the original campaign, attempting to clean up and disarm the various ordinance that remains.Throughout the campaign, the player will also experience flashbacks in order to see the battles from both opposing sides as well as that of nearby civilians.  The DLC was made in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, and half of the net revenue will be donated to said organization in 2018.

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr Co-Op Stream Recap

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr Co-Op Stream Recap

Just a couple weeks ago, Neocore Games' latest action-RPG, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, dropped onto Steam Early Access. Since then, our usual Co-Opticrew has been poking around a bit to see what's going on in there, and last night, we streamed (eventually) some of it.There are a lot of different systems at play in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. In addition to the usual click and loot you find in many Diablo-style aRPGs, Martyr also has a crafting system, a way to generate your own mission using a special currency earned by completing daily quests, a "power level" that affects how easy or difficult a given mission may be, and an even larger concept of completing certain missions or taking certain actions will impact the overall field of play. The biggest problem, so far, is that pieces and components of those things are partially implemented, and none of them are linked up in a meaningful way that makes sense when you fist jump into the game. There's definitely some cool ideas and things going on in Martyr and we're looking forward to see how they develop, but for now, if you're interested in checking out, do know that it's in Alpha and there are some rough edges.

Some Details for First Expansion to Destiny 2 Revealed

Some Details for First Expansion to Destiny 2 Revealed

While folks are still busy gearing up and getting ready for the first raid on the console version of Destiny 2, a listing for the first bit of DLC for the title has popped up on the Microsoft store. Titled "Curse of Osiris," this expansion seems to follow in the same suite as that "Taken King" for original Destiny by adding a new planet to explore (Mercury), new weapons and armor, new missions, and more.News of the DLC first leaked out via a story from Jason Schreier over at Kotaku. From that, it was revealed that the expansion would come out in December and include a new social space (the Lighthouse), a new patrol area on Mercury, and the story bits would revolve around rescuing Osiris from the Vex. The listing on the Microsoft store confirms the story bits and adds that there are new weapons/armor/missions. It's probably safe to assume that the "new cooperative activities" bullet point in that listing will include a new Raid.It's encouraging to see that Bungie is continuing with DLC more in line with the expansions that were released towards the end of Destiny than at its beginning. Hopefully, the game will be as fun to play in three months' time as it is now.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Return Of The Moon Wizards

Listen, you guys don't need me to tell you what most of the Co-Opticrew will be up to this particular weekend.  Bungie's latest co-op loot shooter has arrived in the form of Destiny 2, so you know we'll be playing it until our eyes bleed.  I will say, though, that I honestly wasn't expecting it to just barely edge out a loot shooter that's half a decade old.  I guess that just goes to show that you can never truly escape the siren call of better loot.Those of us who won't be making the numbers get bigger will be gaming locally, on tabletops, and in low resolutions.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Destiny 2 is likely on the agenda. Pining for the PC version. :("
