Our Weekend In Gaming: Scarf Squad

As everyone knows, trendy scarves are the absolute pinnacle of fashion, so the Co-opticrew will be dedicating most of their weekend to collecting said accessories in Tom Clancy's The Division.  I hear there's also something called "third person shooting" in the game as well?  That's unconfirmed, of course, but I suppose there has to be some sort of minigame to wrap around the constant drip of neck warmers.For those who haven't dedicated their firstborn to the "Cult of the Clance", this weekend will involve wargaming, Souls-likes, and (of course) Fire Emblem Fates.  Anyone interested in both Orcs and neon lights should be sure to check out F.A.L.C.O. tonight as they crack into the meaty bits of Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown.Let's have a little look-see at what the whole gang's up to:

Get Rocket League Skin for Your Dying Light Buggy

about X hours ago from

Video games are weird, man. I mean, there you are trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in Dying Light, and your buddy comes screaming by in a Rocket League branded buggy. It's just... weird.Psyonix and Techland have apparently decided to do a fun little cross-promotional thing. If you want to get a Rocket League buggy skin for the buggy that's in the new Dying Light: The Following DLC, head over to this Dying Light website and enter the code "LightMyRocket" (without the quotations). You'll get the skin and be able to cruise around the outskirts of Harran letting those zombies know you're a big fan of, what I can only hope, is an actual sport in that universe.Rocket League players won't be left out on this crossover, either. No details have been shared yet, but it sounds like there will be some Dying Light themed content coming to that game as well.

PC Players Will Enjoy 60 FPS with Dark Souls 3

PC Players Will Enjoy 60 FPS with Dark Souls 3

Bandai Namco confirmed via Twitter last week that Dark Souls 3 will run at 60 FPS on the PC. This is a step up for the franchise as previous PC ports that have supported a higher frame rate often had some weird bugs to go along with it, like weapons degrading at twice the normal rate.The other good news here is that, hopefully, it means the game will not only look beautiful while running, but that it will be as playable in 60 FPS as it would at 30 FPS. One of the main gameplay mechanics in the Souls franchise is timing your character's rolls to avoid enemy attacks. Previous PC ports that allowed the game (which was usually set to a lower FPS rate for consoles) to run at a higher frame rate meant that the actual frames of invincibility you had in that roll changed or were halved. It was enough of a difference to the fans of the series that there were several posts from players recommending other players to limit the FPS to 30.Regardless of how many FPS Dark Souls 3 will run at, I cannot wait to play when it arrives next month.

Steam Workshop Now Fully Integrated into Killing Floor 2

Steam Workshop Now Fully Integrated into Killing Floor 2

First teased last October, Tripwire Interactive has fully integrated Steam Workshop into Killing Floor 2. This means players can now keep all their mods and maps up-to-date as those content creators patch them rather than having to hit up a third party site to download them.Steam Workshop integration has been one of the most requested features for the title from its community. For a game like Killing Floor 2 that engenders a healthy modding community, it just makes everyone's lives easier; from the mod creators, to the players that maintain their own servers. Tripwire has even provided some information for server admins on how they can integrate Steam Workshop into the server's config file so that it will automatically pull the latest updates for a particular map and mod. For players that join a server with a map or mod they don't currently own, it'll download to their system from that server, so no need to go to another site first to get them.Killing Floor 2 is still in Early Access, with no word as to when it will see a final release, though this does bring the game one step closer to that.

Subscribers to EA Access on the Xbox One already have access to Titanfall and its 4 player co-op mode, but sister product EA Origin Access is also getting the game on PC come March 22nd, so brush off those mech skills as you are going to need them. Titanfall is a fun shooter that has more modes than you can shake a giant robot at, including a four player co-op swarm style mode.  It joins an abundance of games already on the subscription based model, several of which have some sort of co-op:Torchlight II Battlefield 4 Battlefield 3 Battlefield Hardline Dragon Age: Inquisition Dragon Age: Origins Dragon Age 2 Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Need For Speed Rivals Sim City The Sims 3 FIFA 15 Dead Space Dead Space 2 Dead Space 3 This War of Mine

The Division is Ubisoft's Most Popular Selling Title to Date

about X hours ago from

We've been enjoying taking on the Rikers, Rioters, Cleaners, and other threats to the city of New York since Tom Clancy's The Division launched a week ago. Us and many, many others. So many others, in fact, that it appears the title has broken some sales records for Ubisoft.In a news post last week, the French developer/publisher announced that The Division sold more copies than any previous game within its first 24 hours of release. Members of that development team have got to be feeling good about that, especially when there was a lot of speculation about whether the title would actually ever get released. CEO Yves Guillemot said the launch was "a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft." Hopefully, this kind of success will be enough to keep Vivendi away for a little while longer.We'll have our co-op review of the game going up soon enough, and until then, you can enjoy the ongoing antics of the "C-Team."

Defend Your Tower with Friends in My Tower, My Home

about X hours ago from

I'm a fan of action-oriented tower defense titles. The amount of time I spent playing Sol Survivor was far greater than I could have anticipated. Thus, I am both interested in and hesitant of Shoor Games' new title, My Tower, My Home. Combining the hectic energy of a platform shooter with the chaotic scrambling that happens in those later waves of a tower defense seems like a mighty powerful drug.When a horde of mechanical foes come to your tower seeking to burn it down, what else are you going to do but defend it? Much like any tower defense title, you'll have rounds of ever tougher enemies to fend off, which will drop experience and coins you can spend in between rounds to improve your defenses and your stats. You can go it alone or you can bring along a friend (local only) to play as the hero's trusty robot companion, Sommybot. While the second player won't have quite the same options for upgrades as the main hero, he will have some unique abilities of his own.My Tower, My Home will be available on Steam starting tomorrow, March 16, and features a two player couch co-op mode.

Thursday Stream Recap: Nuclear Throne Episode 7

about X hours ago from

After taking a week off from Nuclear Throne, Taylor and I had a chance to regroup, recalculate, and remember all those times we died in the first six episodes.  Admittedly, most of my time off involved finding a position to lie prone in that didn't make me nauseous, but it seems to have helped all the same.I don't want to spoil anything, but we get a brief glimpse at our final goal this session, and boy howdy, we were not prepared.  We were always bound to learn enemy logic and boss patterns in the early levels due to sheer repetition, but we're now starting to reach my favorite part of roguelikes: the extreme reaches of a successful "run".  

PlayStation's Launch Party Features a Selection of Co-Op Titles

about X hours ago from

The PlayStation Store Launch Party got underway today with the release of Ska Studios' latest title, Salt and Sanctuary. An action platformer that shares more than a few ideas in common with the popular Dark Souls series, Salt and Sanctuary also allows two players to team up for some local co-op action. It's not the only cooperative title that will be a part of the party, however.Every week over the course of the next month, a new title will debut on the PSN Store. While some of these games will be solo affairs, there are a couple of anticipated co-op releases in the mix as well. A couple weeks from now, Enter the Gungeon will finally arrive and then a few weeks later will be Housemarque's newest shoot-em-up, Alienation. As a part of this special event, pre-ordering any of these titles through the PlayStation Store will get you a bonus 10% off.Sadly, you can't take advantage of that discount for Salt and Sanctuary, but if you're still interested in the title, then you can take some solace in the knowledge that there's a PS Vita version in the works that will be cross-buy. So pay now and be able to play on the go later!
