Warface Operation Earth Shaker Interview Plus a Giveaway!

about X hours ago from

Warface has launched a brand new update for its game, with a huge piece of content called Operation Earth Shaker. The core of the content is focused around a five player co-op mission set in an underground secret lair in a volcano. Sadly, Dr. Evil is not present. There are new achievements, weapon skins, and more to unlock!Each of the five turret types poses a unique strategic threat that can only be neutralized with tactical teamwork. Alongside the turrets, enemy personnel wielding heavy duty weapons add another explosive element to contend with – ensuring players have to be at the top of their game to clear one secured area and move on to the next.Those who survive to see the base’s uppermost level will soon discover that they’ve stepped out of the frying pan and into the fire as they encounter a deadly new boss. This final layer of high-tech security proves Blackwood will stop at nothing to protect – and eventually detonate – the giant Seismic Activity Generator housed within the volcano.

Puzzle and Dragons Adds Multiplayer Dungeon Options

If you are over rank 150 in Puzzle and Dragons, you now have the option to tackle a dungeon with a friend that is at least rank 10. All you have to do is create a room under the Multiplayer Dungeons menu option and share that number with a friend or enter the room ID you have received.Once in the dungeon, both players will use the same board. Each turn lasts three minutes, any longer and the turn is forfeit. If you don't see any good moves, the option to pass is available once per dungeon. If one player abandons the game, it will switch to single player mode. The person that created the room has the ability to use magic stones and continue. As of right now, there are 22 dungeons to master.Not all players will have access to the multiplayer dungeons at this time. Those of you with an iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4th generation, or an Android phone with Android OS 4 or older are out of luck. If you do have a compatible device, the multiplayer option has already launched.

Considering 505 is the publisher behind Terraria, those comparisons are undoubtedly apt.Here's a breakdown of the game's main features, including mention of four player co-op throughout.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Super Bowl Pun

The Co-Opticrew is truly in the pockets of Big Gaming this weekend, as large swaths of our time will be spent with the classic AAA franchises of old:  Halo, Diablo, Final Fantasy, and Pokemon.  A couple of us are trying to fight against the current via a combination of smaller video game titles and tabletop experiences, but will it be enough to stem the tide of high production values and fancy explosions?  Who's to say.There's also some sort of "Big Game" on this weekend as well?  Something involving soup, or a bowl?  We won't be covering much of that, though, since it looks like neither of the teams is outfitted solely with sports-playing AI (though I suppose the jury is still out on that Manning fellow).Take a look at what's in store:

Thursday Stream Recap: Nuclear Throne Episode 4

about X hours ago from

What exactly makes one "King of the Wasteland"?  Is it their ability to wield a golden grenade launcher or rusty shovel?  Is it their piles of money or crystalline skin?  No, I'd argue that one becomes Post-nuclear Royalty through one trait and one trait only - resilience.  Nuclear Throne is a game that punishes a lack of skill without judgement or pretension.  When you've failed to reach your distant goal for the 13th time in an hour, the game doesn't chide you or offer to lower its own difficulty (the most underhanded of insults, in my opinion).  Instead, it merely tells you, "You deserved that.  Wanna go again?"  This isn't a new formula by any means.  Plenty of games offer near-immediate restarts upon failure, but it's a technique that I've found myself dwelling on more and more as my experiences with roguelikes deepen.  In some twisted way, I've found it to be almost encouraging, like a stern, no-nonsense kung fu master.  Despite continued failures, the game persists in our training, knowing that our determination will eventually give way to some deep, untapped potential.Or maybe it just wants to see how long it'll take us to crack.
