Jump in a Mech and Shoot Stuff in Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax

about X hours ago from

If you're anything like some of our staff, you wake up each day a little sad and think to yourself, "my life doesn't have enough mechs in it." Well, you'll only have to live that way for one more week as Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax is coming to the consoles next Friday!Inspired by the side-scrollers/shooters of the 90s, Finnish developer Dreamloop Games has made a game in Stellar Climax that rolls gameplay elements from shmups, beat 'em ups, and RPGs into one arcade shooter package. Players can choose to pilot one of five mechs, each with its own superweapon and special ability, and then set off to save the future across the 30-stage campaign. Once you're done doing that, you can play again in the new New Game Plus mode, or put your skills to the test in the Gauntlet (endless high-score) and Challenge modes. Four player couch co-op is supported throughout all of the game modes, so you should definitely invite a few friends over to play.

Watch Locke and Jason Consume Aragami in GOD EATER 2: Rage Burst

about X hours ago from

Between Attack on Titan and GOD EATER 2: Rage Burst, it kinda feels like it's anime week here on the site. Locke and Jason sat down with the latter on Tuesday this week to hunt down and feast upon some unknowing gods.Having just finished playing GOD EATER: Resurrection (the remake of the original game), diving into the sequel has been interesting. There are a lot of similarities between the two (i.e., each mission boils down to killing Aragami, harvesting materials, and repeating), though this follow-up game has a few new additions that make it a bit more enjoyable. The Blood Arts system, for instance, opens up new attacks and combos for each of the six melee weapon classes, allowing players to develop their own play styles with each.In the video, we run through a couple of the side missions and story missions, and Locke talks about some of the crafting elements. Without a doubt, playing cooperatively with a few friends is definitely the way to go with this game.

Free Supply Drop Update Coming To Enter The Gungeon

You know what?  Normally, I like to start these articles off with a little joke prefacing the meatier bits, but this time, I'm just going to show you a quote from the press release for Enter the Gungeon's "Supply Drop Update"."Players will come across new guns like the Bullet Gun, a gun shaped like a bullet that shoots guns and those guns shoot bullets..."I don't...

Attack on Titan Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

If you missed it Monday night, our Co-Opticrew set about systematically disassembling giant naked men in a handful of Attack on Titan's co-op mode. By the time the dust settled, there wasn't a single Titan left to tell of the horrors we had wrought (well, except for that one particularly creepy one hanging out in home base...)Our co-op review of the title went up last week, but we thought it would be worthwhile to show off some of the gameplay in action. As you'll no doubt be able to tell from within the first few minutes of a mission, there are definite hallmarks of Omega Force's Dynasty Warrior series, but it's not a straightforward "copy/past" of that franchise onto another IP. One of the things we all appreciate about the game is that it does try to stick to some of the ideas (at least, with regards to the combat and movement systems) that are hallmarks of the anime/manga.One quick note about the video, the audio isn't great. Some of us come through just fine while others are barely audible. It's something we plan on fixing before we stream out from the PlayStation 4 again.

EVE: Valkyrie Headed to PlayStation VR

about X hours ago from

Sony's venture into the virtual reality realm will launch next month with a handful of titles, most of which will be single-player experiences. There is one title, however, that will arrive sometime in that time frame that will allow for some cooperative opportunities, EVE: Valkyrie.The team based multiplayer space shooter that's set within the same universe as EVE: Online arrived for the Oculus Rift earlier this year on the PC. Though it's primary focus is centered around two teams of players shooting at each other, the title does allow you to form a squad of up to five players and shoot up another squad controlled by A.I. Players can choose from one of three ship classes - Fighter (assault), Heavy (tank), and Support (healer) - and earn experience to upgrade and customize them. New ships within each class will become available as you earn more experience with that class.For now, there are three mutliplayer modes available and a single-player mode that's designed to familiarize you with the controls and the multiplayer maps. The title is still being worked on and improved, so it's possible additional features will be added later.

Parallel Circles' debut title, Flat Heroes, got the Greenlight, and now it's headed to Steam Early Access. You'll be able to check out the cooperative minimalist action title starting next week, September 8.While the two-man team plans on adding more content to the title based on feedback from the community, the initial offering is still pretty significant. Four players can team up locally to go through 90 levels and six bosses, or you can dive into one of the four competitive modes and play against some bots.No price has been detailed for the game yet, so we'll just have to wait a week to find out.

Fight for Humanity in Livelock, Out Now

Tuque Games’ action shooter, Livelock, is finally here. The bugs have been sorted out, the final polish has been applied, and the battle to restore humanity starts now.When an unprecedented Cataclysm threatens to wipe out all human life on Earth, it’s decided that the best way for our species to survive is to upload our consciousness into machines. A select few are placed into special robots referred to as “Capital Intellects” to help build a new paradise (Eden) where human life can begin again. The rest are uploaded into a giant database maintained by an artificial intelligence, SATCOM, that is waiting for the day to come when humanity can be restored The Cataclysm, however, proves to be more disruptive than anticipated and it corrupts the artificial life left behind, leading to an endless war. In order to break the cycle, the SATCOM finds three Intellects that haven’t been corrupted yet and awakens them so they may track down the keys to Eden.
