DLC for DARIUSBURST: CS Dated, New DLC Announced

Around this time last month we heard there would be some DLC on the way for widescreen, side-scrolling, giant fish ship shooter DARIUSBURST Chronicle Saviours. The new content, which is still unnamed at this point, would include three levels and ships based around three classic Taito games: RayForce, Night Striker, and Metal Black. All of this should be making its way to PC and PlayStation 4 around March 17.In addition to the (tentative) date being announced, publisher Degica also announced that there would be more DLC for the game coming sometime in the near future. This content would be centered around three classic Sega games this time: Space HarrierGalaxy Force II, and Fantasy Zone. Similar to the "Taito packs," these add-ons will include three new levels and three new ships. These levels and ships will only be accessible in the CS mode of the game, however.Each of the game packs (be they Taito or Sega) will retail for $4.99 when they get released, or you can save a few bucks and pick up all three for $11.99. No date has been announced for the Sega DLC just yet.

The Division Beta Was Very Popular

The Division Beta Was Very Popular

The magic of the apocalypse is how it brings people together. You and your buddies can hold up in some abandoned hotel with a fully loaded arsenal of AK's and a cooler full of Bud Lite. Or, you can team up to traverse the wasteland of major cities, scouring for loot and wasting anyone who looks at your haul with covetous eyes.That's why fans of "The Clance," as he is regionally known, massed together to rampage through the Dark Zone in Tom Clancy's The Division this weekend. The beta, now closed, featured over 6.4 million participants with an average time of five hours per user. I'm certain a handful of apocalypse nuts popped No Doze and plowed through the beta non-stop, though we don't have any data on the more apocalyptically-minded testers.That 6.4 million number sets a new record for players on the beta of a brand new game for current consoles.

Enjoy Zombie Killing Action in New Zombasite Trailer

about X hours ago from

Last fall we heard news about the new game from Soldak Entertainment, Zombasite. Set in a world overrun by zombies after the inevitable zomb-pocalypse, players can team up to slay the undead, get loot, and negotiate between groups of survivors. A recently released video of the title highlights some of the action players can expect.While you do get to see some players teaming up together to take down the zombies, demons, and other monstrosities that now plague the world, you also get to see a little bit of the clan/survivor groups. Specifically, attacking another clan for their loot. A quick note, the audio on this video is very loud so you may want to turn down the volume on the video/your headphones before watching.Zombasite has no release date set at the moment, but you can pick up the beta of the game for $14.99 through the developer's website, which will entitle you to the full release whenever it does arrive.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Fire And Disease Shall Flood The Land

The Co-Opticrew is getting real dangerous this weekend.  Not only are we delving back into poorly lit underground chambers (as we have each weekend for about a month), we're also taking on two of humanity's greatest threats:  fire and disease.  In all honesty, both are pretty well contained, with the former to the Wyoming wilderness and the latter to New York City, but that certainly isn't stopping us.  You point out a (virtual) pocket of danger that needs to be (artificially) dealt with, and we're there lickety split (metaphorically speaking, that is.  I mean, we usually get around to it in a timely manner).I'd like to throw a personal shoutout to our own John Bardinelli, who'll be diving into The Greatest Game Ever Made.  Good luck, John!  We're all counting on you.Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I'm hoping to jump into the Division with some of the Co-Opticrew on PC. Maybe watch the Co-Opticrew die horribly in XCOM 2."

F.A.L.C.O. Beats Zonaco; Discovers Monaco Fin Campaign

about X hours ago from

Last Friday, the Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op crew finished off Zonaco and suddenly felt an overwhelming feeling of emptiness as we realized we'd finished Monaco. Then our friend Bakken Hood pointed out that there's another campaign that goes by the name of Fin. That's "Fin" as in the French word meaning "The End," not "Finn," the handsome new hero of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Although, a Monaco campaign based on a Storm Trooper gone rogue, releasing a Resistance fighter from captivity, and escaping from a Star Destroyer together would be pretty bad-ass.Anyway, we finished off the last two Zonaco missions with a great many gratuitous explosions:And then we jumped back into Monaco to start the Fin campaign:

Thursday Stream Recap: Nuclear Throne Episode 6

about X hours ago from

We're just so close.Taylor and I are (hopefully) reaching the limits of what Nuclear Throne has to offer.  Well, that's not entirely true.  Like any Upstanding Roguelike, there are probably entire grottos of extra content hidden just beneath the surface, and by "surface", that thing that has fought us tooth and nail for every inch of progress.  To keep the experience as pure as possible, I've tried to stray from wikis, forums, and the like, but suffice it to say that I've seen enough to recognize the limits of my own knowledge.Before we get into this week's episode, I wanted to briefly mention our plans going forward.  Ascend has been a blast to do, but the series will most likely find its end the first time that we, blood-soaked and irradiated, plop our little butts on that throne everyone keeps talking about.  There are plenty of other rad games out there that are needing coverage, and I worry that a weekly stream dissecting the metagame of Nuclear Throne is quite a bit beyond our original scope.  Besides, if you're really that curious to know what lies beyond, you should grab a friend and set forth yourself!

Registrations Open for the New, Multiplatform Nintendo Account

Time to create another account! Nintendo is gearing up for its first mobile app launch (and its new console, hush hush), and the first step is to introduce a multiplatform account system to replace the current fragmented one. Registrations are now open for... drumroll... Nintendo Account!Registering a Nintendo Account is a piece of cake. Head over to the page, enter your Nintendo Network ID, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter account details, hit the button and you're done! After that, you get access to... well, nothing, really. Nintendo promises its new rewards program is just over the horizon, not to mention Miitomo, the mobile app launching in March. Until then, stare at your account details in awe!Speaking of Miitomo, you can preregister for that by heading over to the official website. Preregistering will earn you My Nintendo Platinum Points, but again, not until the app launches. The app's functionality seems to be limited to Mii-related activities and basic human interaction, so not so much a game as a Mii chat room.
