Battleborn Stream Recap - Mission 3 and Mission 7 Go Down for Double XP

about X hours ago from

If Battleborn was a CQB game, our performance last night on Mission 7 could only be described as surgical. We absolutely sliced, shot, healed and exploded our way through the mission. If you want a fine display of cooperative play, this is where it's at. We also take on Mission 3, and while not quite as dominating, we do a pretty solid job of wrapping that up. Best of all with our play is we earned double XP thanks to the current ongoing event which wraps up on the 25th of May.The video recaps are posted below along with a link to the entire playlist. We still have a few more missions to post, so be on the lookout for that wrap-up soon.

Brut@l's Co-Op Mechanics Detailed

about X hours ago from

As the ASCII inspired, roguelike dungeon crawler Brut@l approaches its PlayStation 4 release date, developer Stormcloud Games is revealing some new information about how co-op works. Specifically, does the loot drop for each player individually, or is it communal? Can a downed buddy be revived? And perhaps the most important question of all, can I throw a potion at my friend's head to heal him or her?In the PS Blog post, producer Richard Wood answers all of these hot burning questions. Loot is not instanced per player so whatever drops is fair game. As the game supports local co-op only, though, presumably you and your buddy won't be fighting too much over who gets what. You're also free to drop items at any time for your friend, or even throw them at him or her. This sharing extends beyond just loot, too. When a player revives another player, the player that is doing the reviving shares their life with the player getting revived. So, if player one has 50 HP and revives player two, both will have 25 HP.There's still no announced release date for Brut@l, but it should be arriving any day now for the PC and PlayStation 4.

Top-Down Arena Shooter Tankr Headed to Steam in June

about X hours ago from

There was a brief time when I was young when my uncle let my family borrow his Atari. He didn't have a lot of games for it, but I definitely remember spending time playing Tank with my brother and sister. Spanish developer Mighty Toast must have dedicated some of their time playing that game as well as their first title, Tankr, seems to be inspired by it.The big appeal to a game like this is attempting to best your friends in tank v tank combat, which can be done in preset levels and levels of your design with the map editor. However, four player local co-op is also support through the title's "campaign." I put that in quotes as the 100 levels of the campaign are more akin to challenges than any kind of story-based affair.Tankr will launch on Steam on June 6 and supports four player co-op, using a mix of gamepads and the keyboard/mouse, for the game's Campaign Mode.

Puzzle Platformer Shift Happens Headed to Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Klonk Games' charming, cooperative puzzle-platformer, Shift Happens, has been in Steam Early Access since September of last year. Not only will the title get a final release in July, it will also be arriving on the Xbox One.Most of the puzzles in Shift Happens revolve around you and your co-op partner shifting your sizes back and forth. It's an idea that appears to be similar to how Shiftlings operated, with the alien janitors in space suits that inflated and deflated being swapped out for sentient blobs. That's totally fine as far as I'm concerned as I feel you can never have too many co-op puzzle games.Shift Happens is slated for an early July 2016 release on the PC and Xbox One. It supports two players locally or online throughout the entirety of the title's campaign.

Civilization VI Announced, Coming in October

about X hours ago from

The next entry in the Civ franchise will be arriving this fall. Civilization VI was announced recently and it seems that the latest in this long-running series will offer some new twists on the well-known formula.Polygon has a more in-depth article on the title that dives into some of the bigger changes that are on the way, such as city improvements getting placed around your city rather than a button to click and units stacking to form new units. It's certainly worth a read if you're into the franchise and curious what impact these changes will mean. For folks curious about the co-op side of things, however, there's not too much to go on.For now, based on the information Firaxis has stated on their website and on the game's Steam page, we're assuming that Civilization VI will at least offer the same co-op that its predecessor did. Specifically, that it will be "played in multiplayer with each player picking to join the same team... assuming a balance of 3 players vs 3 AI are chosen, but you can weight it to 3vs1vs1vs1 or 3vs2 or 2vs1, etc." As soon as more information about what those "new multiplayer modes" will entail, we'll update our database page for the title.

Salt and Sanctuary Out Now On PC, Celebrate With An Hour Of Footage And Key Giveaway

about X hours ago from

Salt and Sanctuary, a game heavily inspired by the exploration, combat, and hellish despair of the Souls series, first made its way to the PlayStation 4 just over two months ago.  Its developer, Ska Studios, was largely unfamiliar Sony's line of consoles, what with the majority of their titles hailing from the Xbox Live Indie and Arcade marketplaces, but their debut on the system made quite the splash.Despite wearing its influence right on its bloody pauldrons, Salt and Sanctuary comes off as more of a love letter than blatant rip-off.  Its combat is equal parts unforgiving and rewarding, and its mechanics are just obtuse enough to draw you in.  Better yet, it features two player local co-op for those of us who would prefer to wander the Great Unknown with a buddy at our side.  Needless to say, its success warranted a port to the PC, which was released just a couple days ago."Enoch", you say, "I have no idea what this game looks like in action, mostly due to the fact that I refuse to watch footage of anything that didn't take place on a desktop computer.  How am I supposed to know whether or not I want Salt and Sanctuary?"  I hear you, I hear you.  This extremely specific issue is exactly why Taylor and I recorded nearly an hour of gameplay on PC.  Check it out!
