Weekend Warrior - Keeping It Real

For Game Informer's weekend, there is sure a lot of Horizon and Zelda going around, which is totally understandable because they're both awesome. Those of us not entangled in the latest and greatest will be indulging in some older favorites like Overwatch, Pokemon Go, and Saints Row 4. Whatever you're playing or doing this week, sound off in the comments below, and make sure to let Kyle know that he should under no circumstances see a film called Rock Dog. I don't even know what it is, it just sounds like a bad scene.

Jordan Leendertsen (@Bad_Durandal) - My weekend will be consumed by chores, and probably downloading more music. I'm on a rare music kick, discovering new stuff from old favorites like Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and Def Leppard. When I'm not doing that I'll be trying to do my Pharah tattoo justice as I continue to struggle against Bastion's ongoing Overwatch reign of terror. Probably some GTA V in there too, I don't know. 

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) - I’m still playing a lot of Zelda, but I have been sharing a Switch with my wife, who is also playing Zelda, and it’s been very difficult for us. Otherwise, I guess I should go see that Logan movie. Or Get Out. Knowing me though, I’ll probably end up seeing Rock Dog, which looks awful.

New Reservoir Dogs Game Revealed

Reservoir Dogs is a classic film filled with memorable dialogue, great performances, and lots of blood, which makes the name of  upcoming game adaptation of the movie, Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, somewhat appropriate. The top-down, Miami Hotline-inspired shooter is due out on both PC and Xbox One in Spring 2017.

If you want to see the game in action, you can watch the teaser for it here:

Cooperative Play Is Coming To Clash Royale

Cooperative Play Is Coming To Clash Royale

In the year Clash Royale has been on the market, the focus has always been on 1v1 battles. Players are encouraged to join clans, but the interaction has been limited to trading cards and working together collectively to earn points to open chests. In an forthcoming update, we're finally get the chance to fight side-by-side with our friends.

On this week's Radio Royale podcast, Supercell announced an "outrageous new game mode" called Clan Battle. Effectively a 2v2 team battle mode, you and a member from your clan can team up to take on two players from a different clan. The game board looks similar to the 1v1 game, but two kings now preside over each base. Each player has their own cards and elixir meter to manage. Since both players are dropping troops and units onto the battlefield at the same time, the elixir meters replenish15 percent slower than usual. At the beginning of the game you'll get a look at your partner's deck, but you won't see his or her meter on screen during play. The only way you can communicate mid-game is by dragging a card onto the battlefield and holding it, so your teammate can see what lane you are attacking or defending. The elixir collector will only accelerate your meter, but buffs such as Rage hit both players' cards.

Hasbro And Harmonix Reveal Music Mixing Card Game DropMix

Today, Hasbro and Harmonix revealed DropMix, a music mixing game that features musical playing cards that play different beats when placed on an electronic board connected to a mobile app via bluetooth. The base pack features several different genres from rock to R&B. Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy and more popular artists are featured.

Each card also has an icon on the lower-right corner, indicating whether the beat will be strictly bass, beat, loop or vocals when placed on one of the five board slots. The cards have NFC chips inside, which is a technology used in smartphones with digital wallets. 

You can use DropMix to create and share your own beats through social media, or you can play the versus mode that allows teams of two (1v1 or 2v2) to face off against each another in a musical battle. In the versus mode, whomever reaches the most points first wins, and you rack up points by having more of your team's cards on the board than the other.

Reader Discussion: What Are You Playing Besides Zelda On Switch?

Reader Discussion: What Are You Playing Besides Zelda On Switch?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a pretty compelling reason to get a Switch, but is there anything else you're playing?

The console launched with Zelda, 1-2-Switch, Super Bomberman R, Snipperclips, and a few others, and today a handful of new(ish) games became available on the eShop. Zelda is the game to play on the system, but are you playing anything else? I've actually been playing a bit of Just Dance 2017, which is goofy fun, as well as Snipperclips, and I plan on picking up Blaster Master Zero once I wind down on Zelda, but otherwise it has just been all Zelda all the time.

What about you? Are you picking up any of those NeoGeo games? Did you not get Zelda and are enjoying 1-2-Switch?
