New Grand Theft Auto V DLC Available

The newest update to Grand Theft Auto V features a number of large changes and improvements to the skies of Grand Theft Auto Online. The DLC is titled “Smuggler’s Run” and adds (inhales deeply to read full list) a new hangar property, new cars, new planes, new clothes and even a new battle royal style game mode.Rockstar set its sights sky high, touting “...a massive range of new, customizable aircraft perfect for any mission along with expansive new aircraft hangars in which to stash your fleet of fantastic flying machines.” and while GTA V is almost 4 years old, its great to see a developer stand behind and believe in their game for an extended period (Skyrim, anyone?). It should be noted that the title, “Smuggler’s Run,” is openly referencing a game Rockstar published in 2000 for the PS2 and GameCube, and seeing a developer/publisher put things like that out there is fun, too. The full developer announcement can be found here.

Xbox Games With Gold For September

about X hours ago from

September will soon be upon us which means the best parts of the year are just around the corner; pumpkin spice everything, Halloween (which seems to be starting mid-August now), crispy and/or crunchy leaves on the ground, caramel corn as well as caramel apples and, best of all, my birthday. September also brings a new batch of free games to celebrate with Xbox’s Games With Gold, though sadly, only one co-op title in the bunch: Battlefield 3.While there are four titles offered in Microsoft’s Games With Gold, Battlefield 3 is what we here at Co-Optimus are excited about. Battlefield 3 was 2011’s version of the popular Battlefield series before the series explored a cops and robbers style slant in Battlefield Hardline, after which, the series returned to its military roots for 2016’s most recent installment into the series, Battlefield 1. The game features multiplayer as well as co-op gameplay with the latter coming in the shape of missions. These missions are quite difficult, with our own Nick Puleo fighting tooth-and-nail to succeed. You can read all of Nick’s thoughts here with our full review of Battlefield 3.

The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor Available on PS4 and Xbox One

about X hours ago from

While the game has been out for some time on the PC and garnered quite a bit of praise and attention, it's only been over the course of the past day that Puuba's rhythm/RPG mash-up, The Metronomicon, has added local co-op functionality. What's more the enhanced version - The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor - is now available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.If you're wondering just what a rhythm/RPG game even looks like, the answer is: very colorful, and hectic. Like any traditional RPG title, The Metronomicon features a cast of playable characters from which to choose as you form your party and go out into the world to battle foes, gather loot, and unlock new abilities. Once you get into combat, though, the rhythm game aspects take over and you'll have to tap along to the beat in order to beat enemies. It's a really unique look/take on RPGs, and the fact that two player local co-op is supported across all game modes makes it even more enticing.The Metronomicon is available on PC via Steam for $19.99. The "Slay the Dance Floor" update is already packed into the title for free. The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor edition of the game is available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $19.99.
