There's An Itsy Bitsy Trailer Out For Vikings - Wolves Of Midgard

about X hours ago from

The latest in Norse ARPG goodness is just a couple weeks away.  Soon enough, you can brave the harsh colds of Niflheim, combat deadly creatures, and engage in sweet blood sacrifices without having to physically do any of that stuff!  It's probably for the best, to be honest.  I'm a wimp in lower temperatures and probably really bad at gathering blood.In the lead-up to Vikings - Wolves of Midgard's March 24th release, a lil' trailer has been released to show off a few of the game's features, including its two player online co-op.  You can check it out below:I wonder how the gods feel about you using and leveling up the weapons they gave you?  I mean, for all we know, those were for the sake of decoration, and we're totally tarnishing them.  Let's hope it doesn't come back to bite us.

Mass Effect: Andromeda's DLC Co-Op Maps to be Free

about X hours ago from

Even Co-Optimus was surprised when it was announced that Mass Effect 3 would have an online co-op mode, but now that it has happened we would expect the same of Mass Effect: Andromeda.  Not a huge amount is known about the co-op in Andromeda, but it is coming and also any new DLC maps for the mode will be free.The previous game had five additional maps added all for free and Aaryn Flynn from Bioware has confirmed on Twitter that this price point is the case once more.  We are still unable to say exactly what the co-op in Andromeda will entail as the Multiplayer beta that was announced, was then cancelled and no further info has been forthcoming.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Impressions and Video

about X hours ago from

I'll state this from the get-go: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is a MASSIVE game. According to the UPlay clock for the game, I've spent just shy of twelve hours with the game with my mission completion at 14%. I've spent exactly half of my time in the game in co-op as well, and thats where Wildlands truly shines.The size of the game isn't the only impressive thing about Wildlands, the sheer technical achievement of the game continues to marvel me. Huge expanses of the world lay before you - if you see it, you can go there. And to get there you'll travel by car, chopper, boat, plane, or perhaps even on foot. The map is broken up into almost two dozen sections, each with their own drug cartel leader you'll need to gather intel on and eventually take down.The missions themselves seem to offer a good variety of ways to complete, with very few forcing you to be stealthy. The one gameplay element that provides the most fun is just how fast a stealth mission can turn into an all out firefight - like some scene from an action movie. One missed shot can alert the wrong guard and the whole thing goes south.

about X hours ago from

Elite Dangerous has been out now for well over two years, but the updates and content keep rolling in. The latest update is a big one; adding longtime requested features like player avatars and multicrew ships!The latest Elite: Dangerous patch is dubbed 2.3 with a large number of changes. Players can start testing all of that now with the patch during a beta testing phase. Unfortunately exciting elements like the co-op multicrew functionality aren't quite live yet; the patch notes for the test include all of the details on multicrew ships, but also mentions in big bold letters they will be added in a future update. Multicrew ships appear to be designed around three players, with one as the pilot, another as the gunner, and a third taking the role of a fighter pilot that launches from the ship. These roles are tracked on an individual dashboard within the ship showing you your current stats in each role as players complete new bounties as a crew of three.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Switch

Look, I could try to write something clever here about Nintendo's new console.  It'd have puns and all sorts of fun stuff, but let's be honest with each other - the Switch is out and, at least for the weekend, nothing else matters.  Much of the staff will be sequestering themselves away to play the new, now-revered Zelda title, so if you need us, check the cabins deep in the Montana wilderness.  Those who aren't exploring Hyrule will be enjoying open-world titles of their own, as well as engaging in fun legal battles.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Checking out some Ghost Recon Wildlands before release!"

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle Co-Op Review

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle Co-Op Review

I’ve been a fan of Power Rangers since the franchise started back in the 90s. Throughout the years, my sons and I have watched countless episodes. We bought the ranger action figures, the giant robot toys, a whole mess of morphers, Halloween costumes, and plenty of video game tie-ins. Upon hearing the news of a new Power Rangers game, a retro-style brawler featuring the original team, we made plans to play through it co-op style together. At first, it went pretty well, but it didn’t take long for the “new shiny” to fade, and we were left with a most un-morphinominal experience.
