Homefront: The Revolution's Release Date May Have Been Leaked

Loose lips might sink a ship or two, but how often do they lead to the annihilation of the United States for the glory of the DPRK? The Proud, All-American institution of Target (purveyor of fine home goods and designer toilet seats) might have leaked valuable information regarding the release of Homefront: The Revolution. Possible turncoat employees threw democracy under the bus with a single picture revealing a $5 gift card deal if you purchase the game from their store. $5? Is that what freedom is worth to you? You're all monsters.Anyway, here's the picture.

New Co-Op Shooter The Bug Butcher Arrives January 19

about X hours ago from

Co-op enthusiasts who were playing games back in the early 90s may remember a title by the name of Super Buster Bros (or Super Pang, depending on whence you hail). The catch to this shooter was that players could only fire up. Rainer Zoettl and Till Aschwanden, two former Blizzard employers, are looking to revive this particular form of shooting things with the forthcoming The Bug Butcher.The title is currently in Steam Early Access for $7.99, but it has a planned release date of January 19. While the campaign appears to be a single player only affair, the Endless mode supports two players locally to take down as many alien bugs as possible.The Bug Butcher will be released on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam when it hits in just a couple weeks' time.

Seven Hours of F.A.L.C.O. Episodes Incoming!

about X hours ago from

While F.A.L.C.O. is almost always live on Fridays, we've been running into trouble posting the videos on Youtube and here on the site. If you're behind, get ready to binge watch over seven hours of Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op! We played the final Rainbow Six Siege beta before the game's release, lots of Zonaco, and a bit of Killing Floor 2. Check out the videos below!We gave the final Rainbow Six Siege beta a shot and liked some of the changes. I'm sure the final game is even better, but the betas weren't enough to convince us to pay full price for the game. Regardless, we had a good time killing terrorists and disarming bombs.Zonaco has become our new staple game and it's easy to see why. It's a fantastic co-op game and the zombies make you re-think your typical approach to Monaco levels.

Punch Robots For FREE In Zheros On January 16th

about X hours ago from

When will human beings put aside the millions of years of conflict we've inflicted upon each other and focus on the real threat: man-sized robots. They've had it too good for too long. Look at Asimo, as he tumbles down yet another flight of stairs. He's cooking up something in that insidious cyber-brain of his. Perhaps he holds a grudge against humans for building said stairs. Perhaps he just wants to eat babies. I don't know; I'm not a robot.Luckily, Zheros envisions a world where you can finally achieve victory over the horrific robot hordes. You and a buddy will team up and punch/shoot every robot you see, in stylish beat-em-up glory. And thanks to Xbox One's Games With Gold, you and your Anti-Robot Agenda pal can take it to the streets free of charge.Check out the trailer.

Trine 3: Artifacts of Powers - Levels 4 and 5 Play-through Video

about X hours ago from

It was almost two years ago we did our complete play-through of Trine 2, streaming the entire game from start to finish in co-op. Last night, we started our play-through of Trine 3: Artifacts of Powers doing the same. The latest game in the series continues the legacy of extremely gorgeous art design and graphics, but changes one key component, it adds a third dimension to the game allowing the players to go back into the rich environments.If you've never played a Trine game before, it follows three heroes with specific powers - A Knight, A Wizard, and a Rogue. Each character can manipulate the environment using real physics to solve puzzles in their own way. Adding a third dimension to the puzzles have made them a little trickier, but no less fun. After the first three levels, which really are a solo affair, we pick up with our three characters. Here's a complete play through of levels 4 and 5. We'll continue our playthrough over the next few weeks and bring you the entire game.

Scalebound Has Been Delayed Into 2017

Alas, ye poor souls.  You who thought that 2016 would be a year filled with dragons, taming, and any combination therein will have to focus your energies elsewhere.  I know, I know.  It's disappointing.  I, too, was hopeful for the chance to explore a soon-to-be-burning countryside with a few pals, but it's looking like PlatinumGames, the folks working on Xbox One-exclusive Scalebound, don't feel quite comfortable with pushing the game out this year.In their blog post today, the developers pointed out that Scalebound is one of the biggest projects they've ever brought to life, so it's not too surprising that an undertaking of this scale was perhaps treated optimistically in its early days.  While the delay is certainly a disappointment for those of us twiddling our thumbs and imagining all the ways we'll be customizing our dragon pal, Thuban (I'm hoping for a La Cucaracha horn), they don't necessarily spell disaster for the game's quality.

about X hours ago from

 With 2015 in the books we thought we'd look back at the year and see what the most popular highlights were for our readers. Looking over the top stories it's surprising to see some things in the list, namely Rock Band 4, Warhammer: End of Times Vermintide. We all but thought that the music genre was dead but Rock Band 4 proved to us otherwise, folks still enjoy their fake plastic instruments with friends. And Warhammer: EoTV came out of nowhere to be one of the best co-op games we played this year.Other highlights include the proper return of a co-op campaign to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Bloodborne capturing the Dark Souls crowd, and indie gems like Bloodsports.TV and The Red Solstice capturing our playtime.Here's the full list of stories, FAQs, features, and most popular games of the year. What are some of yours?

The availability of cross-platform multiplayer will provide a flood of new allies, whether this is your first play through or you are a seasoned veteran.With drop-in/drop-out two player co-op, you can create new experiences by creating strategies with a friend (just don't get mad if they accidentally electrocute you because they didn't notice you were standing in a puddle). AP points determine your move distances and the abilities you can afford per turn, giving this title a tabletop gaming feel. You have to coordinate with your companion in order to pull off devastating attacks that utilize the environment surrounding you.The Enhanced Edition changes so much that it is almost a completely new game, as seen by all the changes made available here.
