about X hours ago from

The sequel to the hit prison life/escape simulator, The Escapists 2, is still tunneling its way to sweet freedom/release this year. In the latest trailer, publisher Team17 is showing off a new prison from which you and your friends can attempt to bust out. As if the name alone (Rattlesnake Springs) didn't tip you off, this new "big house" has a decidedly Western feel.Still no firm release date for The Escapists 2, though it was recently revealed that the title will be making its way onto the Nintendo Switch in addition to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Like the other platforms, the Switch version will still support up to four players locally or online as you all attempt to make your way out of jail.

Wild Guns: Reloaded Headed to Steam This Summer

about X hours ago from

Wild Guns: Reloaded, the recent remaster of the classic shooting gallery game, is headed to the PC sometime this summer. The title was initially released on the PlayStation 4 this past December, and developer/publisher Natsume now has their sights set on a new platform.It doesn't sound like there will be any modifications or alterations made for the PC version. You'll still get the enhanced graphics, the two new characters, new stages, and new bosses that were in the PlayStation 4 version. The four player local co-op will also be kept, so hopefully you and your buddies enjoy getting really close.No specific release date has been announced, nor a price. Presumably it'll still be $30. Natsume will have more details during this year's E3, which is rapidly approaching.

Closed Beta Underway for Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation 4

about X hours ago from

Gazillion kicked off the closed beta for Marvel Heroes Omega last Friday. "Closed," in this case, means that in order to get into the beta, you have to buy one of the six Founder's Packs, which range in price from $20 to $60. They also revealed a particularly nice feature that aligns with our interests: local co-op.I bought into the closed beta so I could check it out over the weekend. Coming from the PC version, it's rather interesting to see what's different. The game as a whole feels more streamlined, which I suppose is to be expected as Gaz is focusing on the "core" elements of the title for now. I've yet to level a character to 60 to see what the end game content is like, but with only one patrol zone and no weekly in-game events yet, I don't expect there to be very much for now. There are a lot of little changes from the PC to console, such as changing up hero synergies and the bonuses certain gear grants you, but none of that is necessarily a bad thing. In fact, some changes, such as the in-game currencies being reduced to just three (one for buying heroes, one for buying items from vendors, and one that only becomes available at 60 for buying special items), means that the title is easier to approach for newcomers.

Our Weekend in Gaming: Hot Millenials Edition

Back in my day, if you wanted to change someone's heart, you did it the ole fashioned way: with a bullet! Now there's all this stuff about phantasmal burglars and things that are "meta." PSHAW! Anyways, let's see what the Co-Opticrew is doing this weekend.Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I need some action-y. I might try to get back into Halo: Master Chief Collection or something. Of course Diablo 3 Season 10."Jason Love (@JLove55) - "I'll be continuing my pursuit of justice in Persona 5 and maybe start going through the second play through of NieR: Automata."

Troll and I Review

Troll and I is a platforming and puzzle solving game for up to two players, but at times, leaves one player to do nothing but wait for the other to progress. As the game carries on, elements from other more popular games can be seen, leaving Troll and I feeling like a soulless chore.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition Now Available for Everyone

about X hours ago from

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, a remastered version of the 2009 RTS title, was initially put out there as an "Early Access" exclusive for anyone who also bought the recent sequel. The implication there was that it eventually would be available to buy on its own, and that day has finally arrived.Along with the updated graphics, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition also touts all of the DLC that was originally released for the title. It supports two player online co-op throughout the entire campaign, and is available for $19.99 on Xbox One, PC via Steam, and PC via the Windows Store. This is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so cross-platform play is supported between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions, but the Steam version will only work with other Steam versions.

First DLC for Ghost Recon Wildlands Available for Season Pass Holders

about X hours ago from

If you haven't had enough narco-state busting, then good news! Some DLC for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands dropped this week for all season pass holders, and it'll be available to buy individually for everyone else next Tuesday.The DLC, titled "Narco Road," weirdly doesn't continue with your character's progress from the main game. Instead, you're given a new character that's set to level 20 and set loose to tackle the 15 new missions. The reason for this kind of reset appears due to the shift in your employer. Rather than being part of an elite military strike team, you're now a mercenary working for the Santa Blanca cartel. You'll have to impress some smuggling gangs to get them on your side (apparently by doing sick stunts in cars/bikes/planes), while also battling a rival cartel.Here's everything included in "Narco Road":

Guns of Icarus Alliance Fully Underway and On Sale

Guns of Icarus Alliance Fully Underway and On Sale

Muse Games' cooperative update to their popular (formerly) PvP game, Guns of Icarus, has finally arrived. The entire affair has been rebranded as Guns of Icaraus Alliance, though the PvP only mode is available separately as Guns of Icarus Online, and it's on sale for just $15 until May 31.When launching Alliance now, you'll be presented with an initial screen that lets you choose between the co-op mode and the PvP mode. Once you're in co-op, you'll be able to go through and do all the customization that you want; choose your faction, stylize your in-game avatar, outfit your ship, etc. Locke, Nick, Mike, and I certainly had some fun making some... unique characters when we checked out the Beta a couple months ago. The game has definitely gotten a little more polish since then and some of the faction/quest stuff is easier to parse, and you can also choose a map size (from one to four ships) in your custom matches if you don't have a group of 16 friends with which to play.Guns of Icarus Alliance is available via Steam now. It supports up to 16 players online, four players per ship, but you can also create custom matches with fewer players and fill in empty crew spots with A.I. teammates.
