I guess I could hear another tale?

Borderlands 2 Commander Lilith DLC Stream Recap

Last month, Gearbox announced/revealed new DLC for Borderlands 2 titled "Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary." This add-on content provides a bit of a story bridge between the end of Borderlands 2 and the start of the forthcoming Borderlands 3. With not many new co-op releases these days, we decided to hop into the DLC and see how Pandora looks nearly 7 years later...

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Stream Recap and Impressions

The final bit of content for Year 2 of Destiny 2 dropped a few weeks ago: the Season of Opulence. The big attraction this time around for all Annual Pass holders is the new six-player matchmade activity, The Menagerie. This "raid-lite" experience challenges your fireteam to progress through a series of objectives before facing a boss at the end. All of that is pretty fun, but it gets better: your rewards for completing all this is to "choose your own loot."

Sometimes, what is best in life, is to prepare sturdy defenses

Conan Unconquered Stream Recap and Impressions

What is best in life? Well, Nick and Jason decided to see for themselves in Conan Unconquered. This survival RTS from Petroglyph (ex-Westwood devs and the team responsible for the 8-Bit series and Grey Goo) puts players in a slightly different role than most other games in this genre. Rather than building up a base and a massive force to roll over your opponent, you're trying to build up defenses to prevent being overwhelmed by the approaching hordes.

Dauntless Stream Recap and Updated Impressions

It's been almost two years since we first wrote up some early impressions of Phoenix Labs' Dauntless, and there have been a number of updates and improvements in that time. The biggest, of course, is the recent release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with cross-play/cross-progression between BOTH of those consoles (whaaaaaaaaat?!) and the PC version. Mike, Nick, and Jason hopped back into the game this week to see how things are looking in the world of the Shattered Isles.

Your viking mileage may vary

Bossgard Stream Recap

There's a new asymmetrical multiplayer game in town called Bossgard and for this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike, Jason, and Nick donned their viking helmuts and viking gear to take on some killer bread! In this 1 v 5 game, 5 players take on the roles of different vikings to bring down 1 big boss. You can have humans in all of those slots, or you can do 5 humans vs 1 A.I. boss (our preference). The title is currently in Early Access on Steam and there's certainly some areas where you can see this is still a work in progress, like the balancing between the two sides, but there's certainly promise.

Revisiting Earthfall Stream Recap

Last summer, we hopped into Holospark's FPS alien shooter Earthfall. The game was very much trying to capture that Left 4 Dead feel but with aliens instead of zombies. There were some interesting ideas, like the 3D printers for guns and setting up defenses, but it also felt like there just wasn't enough there. In the few months after its release, the devs did add some new content, so we figured we should finally hop back in to check it out.
