New Heroes of the Storm Character is Designed Around Co-Op Play

about X hours ago from

All you fans of Heroes of the Storm have further cause to celebrate the game's (albeit limited) co-op mode. A new hero - the ogre mage Cho-Gall - has been added to the roster from the depths of the Warcraft franchise and he offers a unique twist; two players must control him and work together to utilize all of his abilities.Fans of the original RTS Warcraft games on the PC may recall that the two-headed ogres on the Horde side could be upgraded to ogre magi that utilized battle magic to buff allies or create traps for foes. Among these units, Cho'Gall was debuted as a sort of hero unit that has gone on to be featured in the World of Warcraft universe. He now makes his way to Heroes of the Storm and brings with him a new way for controlling heroes. One player will control the "Cho" head, which is largely melee focused and actually moves the ogre around the map, while another player controls the "Gall" head, which utilizes magic.

Space Food Truck Now Available on Early Access

about X hours ago from

Ever wanted to start up your own food truck with a group of friends.... in spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace? Well, then, good news everyone! You can now live out your culinary dreams in Space Food Truck, a cooperative deck-building game that tasks you and your comrades with making the best dishes in the galaxy.The title arrived on Steam Early Access yesterday and I've had a chance to give it a little bit of a spin as any game that utilizes deck-building mechanics is a strong pull for me. Like many games of this ilk, each card has two values on it: a cost and a power. Power is used to avoid interstellar disasters (like the captain falling asleep at the wheel) as well as being used in conjunction with other cards to trigger an effect, such as making repairs to the ship. At the end of each player's turn, they may buy a card from the friendly "Zapmart" based on the total amount of cost on each of that player's cards either in play or in his/her hand. There's an interesting balance you need to strike with how much power/cost you have in your deck - the game actually include a stats meter for your deck to tell you your average - and how much you have to balance that among all the players.Check out this video from developer One Man Left Studios to get a better idea of how all of this works in action.

Co-Op Arcade Shooter Cyborg Rage Kicks Off Beta This Weekend

about X hours ago from

There are some co-op concepts I can get behind. Like the horde/director mechanics behind games like Left 4 Dead and Warhammer 40k: End Times - Vermintide. Developer Ragiva Games is taking those concepts and applying them to their side-scrolling arcade shooter, Cyborg Rage. If you're interested in checking out what that looks like, then you'll get your chance this weekend.The game, which is currently working to get onto Steam via Greenlight, supports two player online co-op where you and your partner fight through waves of enemies that are generated in waves similar to how they were in Left 4 Dead. In addition, some of those waves will contain special/super enemies that are tougher to take down. As with any good side-scrolling shooter, you'll be able to choose from three different ships (each with their own strengths and weaknesses) and upgrade them as you progress.You can sign up for the open beta at the Cyborg Rage website and hopefully enjoy an amusing diversion this weekend.

Total War: Attila Goes Medieval With Charlemagne Expansion

about X hours ago from

The team down at Creative Assembly must have a grim view on history. They've spent the better part of a decade and a half chronicling mankind's legacy as one giant brawling bloodbath, and probably won't stop until every notable period is steeped in gore. They couldn't handle the gap between the Roman Empire and the Middle Ages being free of strife, so they made Total War: Attila to prove that even in the 5th Century you could still hurl hundreds of dudes to their heavy cavalry-related deaths with relative ambivalence. Now they've closed that gap even further with the announcement of Attila's first expansion: The Age of Charlemagne, out December 10th.Check out the trailer, steeped in that early medieval goodness.An entirely new campaign map awaits those who step into the 8th Century, with 50 provinces to conquer and plenty of era-appropriate units to deploy. Defend Europe from its outside foes, and the problems that lie within.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Co-Op Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Co-Op Review

The Call of Duty franchise has been a weird entity in my eyes. It is one of the largest franchises of the past decade, yet it bounces back and forth between development studios with each installment into the series. This results in an uneven experience from game to game with slight changes in the campaign structure, weapon feel, and character movem...Read More

Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Out Now

about X hours ago from

You and your team of monster-slaying Hunters plumbed the depths of Yharnam and faced the nightmarish beasts that lie below. You've bested Bloodborne, and fired your trusty side arm wildly into the air in celebration. But before you smash your disc into a trillion pieces, as tradition demands for defeated games, maybe cast your gaze to "The Old Hunters," the first (and only) DLC/expansion for Bloodborne, out now.A free nine gig patch paved the way for the "The Old Hunters" last week, and now you can finally plunge into the Hunter's Nightmare to face the fallen heroes of yore. Check out the trailer.The Souls games always feature a gnarly cast of hideous enemies, but something about the raw, cosmic horror design of Bloodborne's particular baddies is truly unsettling. Good to see they spared no expense in the Horrifying Creature Department for "The Old Hunters." That screaming dude in the trailer there, Ludwig, might be one of the most grotesque designs for an enemy in gaming.
