The Co-Opticrew is delving into the mire of Steam's Summer Sale and hoping to emerge with as many precious baubles as our wallets will allow.  You'd think year after year of discount-diving experience would make us a bit more savvy with our hard-earned dollars, but that's not quite the case.  However, we have posted a missive from our journey that may help guide any newcomers.  It's definitely worth checking out if you're wanting to pick up a few co-op games over the next week or two.This weekend, we're smashing Hot Wheels together, exploring dungeons with our blocky buds, and gamifying our fitness regimens.  Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "More Sea of Thieves. And diving into the collection of stuff from the Steam Summer Sale."

Crystal Dynamics’ Avengers Looks To Change The Focus

Little is known about the upcoming Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics other than: 1) its unique aesthetic, 2) it will have a September 4th release date, and 3) it will have co-op  Thankfully, Episode 366 of the official PlayStation podcast helped with some of this. In the interview, studio head Scot Amos  mentioned that Kamala Khan (a character featuring healing and polymorphic abilities) will have a similar point of view as the player. This makes a lot of sense, as Amos  puts it: "People who are fans of anything Marvel will have some way in, will already have an understanding. That's why Kamala's so special to us... she is us in a way, right? She's a fan of the Avengers."Aside from Khan, Amostakes time to speak about other heroes in the game and to explain how the team is implementing feedback and incorporating it into their development process. He says: “Certainly, all we’ve done with our characters is constantly iterate and playtest. I mean, we play every day [...]as the fans of the franchise , but also the game makers. We have this privilege and this responsibility to play and say, ‘Does this feel Hulk enough? Does this feel Blackwidow enough?’ and, ‘What can we do to just amplify that a little to make them feel more super here or there?’”
