about X hours ago from

If there's one thing I love to see, it's PC indie game getting the chance to find a whole new audience on consoles. Next week (and just in time for Valentine's Day, all you co-op lovers out there) Nerdook's Vertical Drop Heroes HD will make its way onto the PlayStation 4 (and Vita), and onto the Xbox One a few days later.The last we heard from Nerdook and Vertical Drop Heroes HD, the one-man development team had just wrapped up converting the game from a browser-based Flash game to a full-fledged PC title. Since then, he's been busy working on bringing the action RPG game to the current gen consoles, a venue that feels pretty appropriate for it as it's a fun/quick pick-up-and-play co-op title. Just as on the PC, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will support two player couch co-op.Vertical Drop Heroes will be available on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita (NOTE: it is not clear at this time if the Vita will support co-op via AdHoc play) on February 14, 2017, and on the Xbox One on February 17. The title supports the "Cross Buy" feature for PS4/Vita, so picking it up on one platform automatically allows you to get it on the other. The game will retail for $6.99 on PS4 and Vita, and $7.99 on Xbox One.

Can the New Update Save Super Dungeon Brothers?

about X hours ago from

Xbox Live's Games with Gold does not only provide access to older games, but sometimes it offers games on day of release such as Super Dungeon Brothers.  However, modern gaming means that the released product is not always the finished one and this was one title that needed some tweaks.  Perhaps the latest update will make the game .... fun.Having put in a few hours into Brothers it is fair to say that it had a few niggling glitches that detracted from the game.  The 4 player co-op could be fun, but was rife with issues - players being kicked for no reason being one.  There was also no way of creating a private game for fewer than 4 players and getting together a posse that size is not always easy.The update will automatically upload onto Xbox One's owner's consoles from today - PlayStation 4 and PC owners will just have to wait for their patch.  In depth information about what the patch fixes can be found here, but for co-op players the main corrections are:
