New Co-Op Mission Comes To Metal Gear Survive Next Month

Metal Gear Survive released earlier this week, and Konami has announced some of its post-launch plans for the game. In particular, Rescue Mission is a new cooperative mission type that arrives in March.

Rescue Mission requires you and your teammates to enter enemy territory and save other soldiers. According to Konami, these missions will “embrace a whole new level of cooperation and team spirit as they coordinate with their squads to rescue soldiers in need of help.”

In the meantime, Konami is offering both daily and weekly missions that offer bigger rewards and special modifiers that change up battles. HellFire is one of these modifiers, which puts all enemies on fire.

Remastered Turok Games Hit Xbox Next Month

Remastered Turok Games Hit Xbox Next Month

Along with their troubled System Shock 2 remake, Night Dive Studios have been working on remastering the first two Turok games since at least early 2016. Thankfully, that project isn't troubled, and will launch early next month.

Night dive has announced that both games will release on Microsoft's console on March 2. The games will be $20 apiece. These remasters seem to be light on new features, sticking instead of revitalizing the core experience of the titles under a new engine. You can watch a trailer below to see how the remaster of the first Turok looks in action.

Reader Discussion – What Is Your Favorite Gaming Spin-off?

Reader Discussion – What Is Your Favorite Gaming Spin-off?

With Metal Gear Survive out this week (review in progress!), spin-offs are in the air, for better or worse. But while Survive has some baggage attached to it, there are plenty of cases which make the case that spin-offs can be as great as the series that inspired them.

It's entirely possible that I've missed a few great spin-offs while thinking of my answer, but I'm pretty sure the first WarioWare game is up there. Sure, the "Wario" in WarioWare is more a ruse that ties all the microgames together than a real substantive hook, but the biker jacket and helmet have become an iconic look for the character, breathing new life into him beyond him being "bad Mario." The supporting cast is great too, and of course, the idea of playing dozens of microgames that last only a few seconds each is a brilliant idea that holds up today.

So what's your favorite spin-off? Think Revengeance is an excellent game in its own right? Are you one of those weirdos who likes Dirge of Cerberus? Or do you have a soft spot for the Rabbids? Let us know in the comments!

You Can Watch The Official Papers, Please Short Film Now

Last year we covered the trailer for a short film based on Papers, Please, which had a surprisingly good trailer. If that trailer piqued your interest, we're happy to report you can watch the entire thing now.

Papers, Please follows the plot of the game, and has an immigration inspector making tough choices about who he will let into the country based on their passport and personal history. The entire film, which was made with the blessing and cooperation of Papers, Please creator Lucas Pope is only 11 minutes long, so if you're looking for something to watch over dinner or a late lunch, this should hit the spot.

If you're not a Youtube person, you can also download and watch the film on Steam.

Latest Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack Adds Ultra Instinct Goku, Others Next Week

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is getting a fairly large content drop next Wednesday, February 28. Players will be able to purchase Jiren, Dragon Ball Super's rendition of Android 17, Fu (one of Dragon Ball Online and Xenoverse 2's original characters) and, most notably, Ultra Instinct Goku.

For those who haven't kept up with Dragon Ball for a while, Ultra Instinct is a form of godlike movement and offense taught to Goku by Whis, the caretaker of the God of Destruction, Beerus. This is his strongest form yet, and while in it he may be as strong as Beerus himself.

You can watch all four of these characters in action below. Head here for our review of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

Nintendo Sets Up User Reviews For Games

Nintendo Sets Up User Reviews For Games

User reviews are coming to Nintendo's website, as spotted by Polygon, adding a feature that lets fans talk up (or talk down) games on Nintendo systems.

If you have played a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Switch game, and your MyNintendo ID confirms as much, you can go to the company's website and drop some thoughts about the game. The process for this is, at best, circuitous in that Nintendo way, so let's go at it step by step.

To review a game, you browse Nintendo's game guide and search for the game you want to talk about. Upon finding let's say Splatoon 2, you scroll down to "Review This Game." Assuming you're logged in with your Nintendo ID, Nintendo's servers will check if you have played the game for at least two hours. If you have, great! You can submit a review using a 5-star system, create a headline, write a review (with a minimum of 50 characters, so no just "This sucks!" or "WOW"), be nice and mark for spoilers, and identify what type of gamer you are: Core gamer, casual gamer, parent, or Nintendo fan.

Persona 3 and Persona 5 Dancing Titles Will Support PSVR

Persona 3 and Persona 5 Dancing Titles Will Support PSVR

In an odd little note at the end of a Japanese PSBlog post, it has apparently been confirmed that both of the new Persona dancing spinoff games will support PSVR.

No additional details were given and presumably this would not just be for simply viewing the game, as there's already a built-in function in the PS4 for using the PSVR for that. Will this be if not the first then at least the most prominent virtual reality dancing game on the PlayStation VR? Or will it just be a weird mode for oggling character models?

While no western release date has been announced, Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night are scheduled for release in March in Japan.

Weekend Warrior – Snowed In, Game On

Weekend Warrior – Snowed In, Game On

Winter is still coming for Minnesota as a snow storm is poised to keep most of us homebound this weekend. Will we survive the siege of snow that’s heading our way? Will the storm last a fortnight, or just as long as a battle royale in Fortnite? Let’s see how the Game Informer staff plans to stay warm this weekend. Let us know how you’re spending your weekend in the comments below!

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – Happy weekend, y’all! Hmmm, what to play … I think I’ll keep rolling with Metal Gear Survive. The game is fascinating and there’s a good game buried somewhere in there, I’m just having a tough time finding it consistently. Last night I hit several fail states after playing for a long time and was devastated by the checkpoints, but still! Other than that, I’ll probably mess around a bit with Alto’s Odyssey on iOS. Have a good weekend!
