Will Evolve Be Able to Top Left 4 Dead's Legendary Co-Op?

If so, co-op gaming may become hotter than ever!

In 2015, Turtle Rock Studios is going to launch their latest game, Evolve, looking to combine many elements that I fell in love with in their previous work, Left 4 Dead. In many ways, I look at this new game as an opportunity for developer to shape yet another generation of gamers into co-op lovers just like me. Therefore, I've decided to take the opportunity to explain why I'm so hyped to play this game and so should everyone else!

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition On Steam Tomorrow

Luchadores don't get a whole lot of positive rep in video games. Sure, a couple grace the rosters of a handful of fighters, but most games have our heroes and heroines fighting against the forces of hyper-muscular, well oiled wrestlers. Luckily for masked, enthusiastic meatheads everywhere, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition exists to squelch the stereotype of the luchador villainy. And for those of you who missed out on the console versions of the Day of the Dead Metroidvania stomp, it's coming to Steam tomorrow for $14.99.

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition Impressions and Video

Diablo 3 has hit next generation consoles, and if you've been watching our Twitch.tv channel where we've been streaming in since Friday, you've seen the improvements in action already. What may be surprising for those of us who have played the PC or previous console versions are just how many small changes Blizzard have made to the game to really "tighten up the graphics on Level 3". Seriously though, there's a lot of positive changes in Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition.

Guns of Icarus Online Co-Op Debut At Pax Prime, August 28-29

A few years ago, we reviewed a little game called Guns of Icarus and found, unfortunately, the co-op a little bit lacking. Fast forward half a decade into the future. Four-manned blimps once again rule the skies. Here we are, in the year 2014, and Guns of Icarus has been reborn as Guns of Icarus Online. And you know what? It finally has a dedicated co-op mode!

Sumo Omni Reloaded is your Flexible Gaming Chair

Sumo is a brand of furniture that's been around now for almost ten years. They are famous for their line of giant bean bag chairs. We've looked at both their Couple and Emperor lineup, and it's easy to see how a giant overstuffed "bean bag" chair could make a nice addition to your gaming room. These aren't the kind of bean bag chairs you'd find in Wal-Mart, they are quality pieces of furniture made with furniture grade stuffing. Today we're looking at their latest product, one of the few that isn't a bag style chair. It's called the Sumo Omni Reloaded and the idea behind it is versatility.

Check Out Evolve's New Commentated Trailer

Turtlerock Studios have given Evolve the John Madden Treatment by talking over gameplay. This particular video features footage from their new map, The Distillery. While we don't know what's being distilled there, we do know there's a real nasty monster zooming around the map and chewing up hunters. Granted, this feels more like watching a narrated MLG match than devs describing gameplay features, but there's nothing wrong with that.
