about X hours ago from

After a number of variations, expansions and tweaks to their previous work, Activision and Bungie have set a release date for the sequel, Destiny 2. On September 6th, 2017, PlayStation and Xbox One owners can begin their legend anew.While the September release is for consoles, PC Guardians-to-be will finally be able to take up arms on October 24th. This marks a different focus for Bungie, who had left PC players without any way to play the original Destiny. If you're so inclined, there are a number of editions you can buy as well, ranging from the Standard $59.99 version all the way up to the $249.99 Collector's Edition. Pre-ordering the game will also get you into the early access beta that's set to take place the weekend of July 18 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and sometime in August for PC.Destiny 2 is set to feature a number of cooperative features, ranging from the usual Strikes and Raids to the new addition of Clans and Guided Games. Previous modes are set to be similar to what they were in the first installment, with the newly-added ‘Guided Games’ coming along to help match-making. This mode aims to assist single-players in finding clans they can team up with to complete raids, while also allowing clans to use single-players to boost their numbers. Co-op fans rejoice!

Physical Version Of The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ Coming To PS4

The never-ending cycle of Binding of Isaac remakes, remasters, and re-releases continues with a brand new, physical version of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth Plus.  Per a tweet from the game's publisher, Nicalis, the game is getting its very own disc for PlayStation 4 users to inevitably break after a particularly heartbreaking run.For the (somehow) uninitiated, TBoI and its many offspring are roguelikes centered around a small, incredibly sad child and his quest to do... well, a number of things that I won't spoil for you.  To accomplish said quest, though, the player must work their way through a series of randomly generated levels and survive each segment using the game's twin-stick shooter combat.The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ coming to #PS4 at retail and digital Maybe with a PS4 preorder bonus!

SNES Classic Coming This September With Some Classic Co-Op Titles

Following up on the popular, though limited, NES Classic this past holiday season, Nintendo announced yesterday that they are releasing an SNES Classic this September. The good news is that they're making more of them this go around, the bad news is it'll probably only be for this calendar year.This little emulator system will come with 21 SNES titles that may not encompass all your favorite childhood memories, but it'll be close. Personally, there's one title on the list (Secret of Mana) that stands out to me as all-time great and best of all it's co-op! Full list is below and we've marked with an asterisk those games that features local co-op.The SNES Classic is slated for a September 29 release date at the price of $80. As Kotaku reported yesterday, Nintendo plans on producing more of these systems than they did with the NES Classic, but the wording of that plan points towards it being for this year only. Specifically, the Nintendo rep with whom they spoke said, "At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year." Maybe the popularity of the system will lead to more being produced in the new year, but who knows.

Pokémon Go to Add Co-Op Raid Battles This Summer

Because I'm apparently a grumpy luddite who hates all things new, charming, and fun, I never got into the Pokémon Go craze last year. Since I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on the face of the planet for whom that's true, then the news that Pokémon Go is adding a cooperative mode this summer will likely be of interest to you.
