Tom Clancy's The Division: The C-Team - Nick Gets a Scarf!

about X hours ago from

The team has been progressing nicely, now in the upper teens levels we can see the difficulty really start to ramp up in Tom Clancy's The Division. We progress through midtown cleaning up the mean streets of NYC. It's interesting to see the slow progression of our team specializing based on their skills, but I can say one thing, we sure are efficient.Perhaps the best news of the night was after dozens and dozens of pants, jackets and hats -  a teal beam of light emitted from a graveyard around 40th Street. In it's glow was the one item Nick so desperately desired, the one item to stop the deep chill he felt in his bones. Nick finally gets a scarf!

Strategically Take Down Zombies in Kingdom Wars 2: Battles

A new competitor for the title of "best zombie killing co-op game" has entered the fray, Kingdom Wars 2: Battles. The title, which recently left Early Access, focuses on the more strategic elements of battling the undead menace.There are two main co-op modes in Kingdom Wars 2: Battles: Skirmish and Survival. Skirmish lets you and a friend team up to take down some A.I. controlled foes, or "comp stomping." Survival pits you against waves of zombies to see how long you can last. In both modes, the key to your victory will lie in how well you can build up your base and outfit your units. Of course, trying to fend off a never ending tide of the undead does tend to shift one's priorities to the defensive side of things.Kingdom Wars 2: Battles is available on Steam for $29.99 and supports two players online for its separate co-op modes.

New Co-Op Mode Revealed for Star Fox Zero

Revealed during Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct, it appears that the newest Star Fox game, Star Fox Zero, will include a two player co-op mode. However, rather than stepping into the cockpit of Slippy, Falco, or Peppy, your friend will be assisting you just manage to fly your own Arwing.One of the features that some folks have been questioning when the title was first revealed was the game's control scheme, which utilized the Wii U GamePad to control your ship and to shoot as well by aiming with the GamePad screen. Nintendo has apparently decided that those duties may be best relegated to two different control schemes. Thus, Star Fox Zero's co-op mode was born.From what was discussed during the event, it sounds like two players will be able to play through the game's entire story campaign together. One person will use a controller to control the Arwing's flight while the second person will use the GamePad to shoot down enemies. There's some potential here for a lot of fun.

Bash and Loot Those Zombies with the Dead Island Definitive Collection

about X hours ago from

Hopefully in anticipation of some big news regarding Dead Island 2, publisher Deep Silver has announced that it's bringing the original, Dead Island, its sequel, Dead Island: Riptide, and all of the DLC that was released for both of those titles onto the current generation of consoles in Dead Island Definitive Collection.Sounds like Deep Silver will be putting a little polish on everything, tweaking graphics and updating the UI, as a part of this packaging. Additionally, a new mini-game, called Dead Island Retro Revenge, will be packaged into the deal. All of this will retail for $39.99 when it arrives May 31.I really enjoyed the first Dead Island. The RPG mechanics in a FPS was a really nice change from most of the other shooters at that time, and the crafting system let you make some really creative weapons, like a katana that's also a flame-thrower. Techland's latest title, Dying Light, refined those systems, to a degree, while also adding a very solid parkour system, but I'm definitely interested in going back and playing the first iterations of that idea on something like the PlayStation 4.

Get More Mileage Out of Disney Infinity 3.0

about X hours ago from

Disney recently announced that there will be no "4.0" version of their popular toys-to-life title, Disney Infinity, at least for another year. Rather than going through another upgrade that forces fans to purchase new Starter Kits, the title will remain the 3.0 edition a little while longer. In addition, new content, like the Marvel Battlegrounds play set that gets released tomorrow in the States, will continue to be released for this version.All of this info comes from the new "Disney Infinity Next" video that was recently released. In that video, general manager John Blackburn and vice president of production John Vignocchi discuss the overall plans Disney has for their title over the course of the year. Much of the video focuses on the more immediate releases: Zootopia figures, Marvel Battlegrounds, and the Baloo figure from the "Jungle Book", which also gets released tomorrow.Specific details of what content is in the works weren't discussed, though it was revealed there will be new content from each of the four major branches: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. There's also a little teaser at the end that seems to hint at the next planned content being lined up with the release of "Finding Dory."
