about X hours ago from

More than 50 games offering co-op features were released last month across all the major platforms. So while everyone (yes, including us) is waiting for the Next Generation(TM) to arrive in a few weeks, there's still more than enough co-op fodder available to pass the time with friends. The database meanwhile saw an increase of 170 old, new and upcoming titles during the month, making sure that we remain your primary source for co-op gaming!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Monster Mash

As part of our roles as Gaming Journalists, we're contractually obligated to bring forth some of our spookiest gaming material for the coming weekend.  From what I can tell, it seems like the Co-Opticrew has landed on Hades as its game of choice this time around.  What's scarier than having a douche-y dad telling you what to do all the time?  Trying to disobey him, failing, and listening to him gloat over and over for eternity, of course.Elsewhere, we're beefing up our light levels, engaging in some seasonally appropriate ghost hunting, and slooping the day away.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Picked up Hades so I'll be diving into that along with the new Sea of Thieves update."

Next Entry in The Dark Pictures Anthology, Little Hope, Available Today

If you were looking for some new, spooky video game to play with some buddies this Halloween, well you're in luck! The newest entry in the Dark Pictures AnthologyLittle Hope, is available today for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Supermassive Games made quite the name for itself with its first interactive horror title, 2015's Until Dawn, and the first entry in its Dark Pictures AnthologyMan of Medan, earned additional praise for the way it allowed you to enjoy this kind of game with friends.The setup for Little Hope is that a group of four college students and their professor become stranded in the eponymous town after their bus crashes. The town itself is known for its history of witch hunting, so as you can imagine, hijinks will ensue.If you didn't play Man of Medan, don't worry, you can still hop into Little Hope. The "Anthology" part in the title is due to Supermassive Games grouping up all these entries within as a kind of short story collection. Each game is based around a certain horror trope (Medan was ghosts/ghost ship, Little Hope is witches) but there's not a common link between the two outside of the "Curator" character who serves as a kind of Cryptkeeper to these tales.

HyperX Pulsefire Haste Gaming Mouse Review

HyperX Pulsefire Haste Gaming Mouse Review

Earlier this week, HyperX released its latest mouse in the Pulsefire line: the Pulsefire Haste. This mouse takes the general shape and configuration shared by other mice in the same family and applies a honeycomb hex shell design to be lighter in weight. At only 59g, the Haste is 28g lighter than the Core (the previous lightest mouse in the wired Pulsefire family) and 41g lighter than the Surge (the heaviest mouse in the same wired family).The Haste possesses six programmable buttons (the same number as the FPS Pro, Surge, and Dart, but one less than the Core and five less than the Raid) and TTC Golden micro dustproof switches. Since much of the mouse is open to the elements, it’s important than these switches have an anti-dust coating, and they’re also rated up for 60 million clicks (40M more than the Core, FPS Pro, and Raid, and 10M more than the Surge and Dart). Like most of the Pulsefire family (aside from the Core), the sensor can detect up to 16000 DPI natively.Like the Raid and Dart before it, the Haste has a split button design where the left and right mouse click buttons are separate pieces from the body of the mouse. This provides better responsiveness to light clicks as well as a more consistent clicking experience. Like all the Pulsefire mice I’ve used, the Haste feels comfortable in hand and slides smoothly across surfaces.
