The SNES Classic Wild Guns is getting a little bit of a remake with Wild Guns: Reloaded, which was announced earlier this year for a Japanese release. Now, the remake will be making its way to U.S. and European shores next week.So what all will you get with this remake? Well, in addition to new stages and new bosses, you'll also get two new playable characters and the ability to play the game with up to three other people! That's a 100% increase in characters and players from the original! The title will let you play through the entire campaign with your buddies, shooting up all those enemies and bosses along the way.Wild Guns: Reloaded will be available for the PlayStation 4 in the U.S. and Europe on December 20. There will be a physical version available for sale on Amazon for $29.99, though its listing will only show up on the release date. No word on what the digital edition will cost. Hopefully, it will be a bit cheaper.
Endless runners on mobile phones have become quite the phenomenon these days. Even Nintendo is getting into it, though they are taking it on with their own approach. Indie developer Hungry Dog Games is doing their own thing as well by bringing co-op into that genre with their PC title, Alien Evaders.Like any endless runner, there is no set goal in Alien Evaders; you just keep going for as long as possible. The trick here is that your alien is headed down a set lane with colored barriers that keep approaching you. In order pass through the barrier, you must change the color of your alien to match. When playing with another person locally, this adds some interesting twists as you have to coordinate your color shifts. If a blue barrier comes at you, both players must be blue. If an orange barrier approaches, then one player must shift to red while the other shifts to yellow.Alien Evaders is available on itch.io on a "pay what you like" model. It supports two players locally and also has a four player local mode where teams of two can compete to see who gets the farthest.

What? There's no way we've already made it to the weekend. Just yesterday, I was slamming my alarm clock and emerging from my weekend fugue state. Plus, if it's already the weekend, then that would mean Christmas is just a couple weeks away, and that can't be true, cause then I wouldn't have time to get gifts-Guys. Guys, I gotta go.Here, shove these weekend plans into your ocular receptacles. We've got all kinds of stuff on the agenda, from loot shooters to JRPGs to pinball emulators. Just, just take it and keep this whole gift thing between us, yeah?
Square Enix and Omega Force are bringing Dragon Quest Heroes 2 to the States and Europe this Spring. Like so many Omega Force titles, this one does follow the familiar Dynasty Warriors hack-and-slash formula, but with a Dragon Quest slant instead of Lu Bu.While the original Dragon Quest Heroes was, weirdly, a single-player only affair, the sequel introduces four player online co-op. This new adventure will be set in an all-new world with some new heroes that set out to defeat evil and restore peace. A few familiar faces will be joining in on the adventure, too, as the announcement trailer shows off.Dragon Quest Heroes 2 will be released on the PlayStation 4 on April 25, 2016 in the U.S. and on April 28, 2016 in Europe.

Starting next Friday, December 16, you and your fellow space-faring friends will be able to check out System Era's exploration/adventure game, Astroneer, as the title officially enters Steam Early Access and the Xbox/Windows 10 Game Preview program on that day.As confirmed by one of the studio's founders on Twitter, if you go the Xbox One/Windows 10 route for the game, then you'll get to take advantage of Xbox Play Anywhere. The title will support the cross-buy/cross-save functionality right out the gate, and cross-platform play will "come in one of the early updates."The biggest hook to Astroneer is the way the terrain can be deformed and created just as if it were "made of Play-Doh." You can check out a two hour "Let's Play" with one of the devs in the video below to see some of that in action.
"Wow," I remember thinking when I first gazed upon State of Decay's Steam page, "this has just about everything I'd want in a zombie survival game." Not only did it allow you to engage in the traditional scavenging, crafting, and defending mechanics found elsewhere in the genre, it also attempted to simulate the humans living within this apocalyptic nightmare and their various relationships. Unfortunately, it was without any sort of co-op mode, and as such, was tough to imagine fitting into my traditional gaming rotation.Imagine my (and presumably many others') joy when the game's follow-up was announced to have four player online co-op! We don't know a tremendous deal about State of Decay 2, aside from a potential 2017 release window, but our friends over at IGN had the chance to speak with the Undead CEO, Jeff Strain, and confirm some new details about the open-world title.You can check out the full article here, but among the highlights are an increased overall scope, a lack of traditional PVP, and the allowance for co-op players to "split up" and accomplish separate tasks.
