Helldivers will let you play every combination of co-op imaginable photo
Helldivers will let you play every combination of co-op imaginable
by Bill Zoeker

Before GDC, we were joined by some of the fine folks at Sony live on Dtoid.TV. Above is a video of us playing an early build of Helldivers with its Sr. Producer, Mark Rogers.

Helldivers is a game that admittedly went under my radar literally until the moment we showed it off on Dtoid.TV. Then I found out it's being developed by the same folks who brought us Magicka. Then I found out, when it comes out for PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita this summer, Helldivers will allow you to play with friends locally, online, and across all three platforms in any combination. I am super down for this title. It seems our cooperative options are narrowing these days, and that's really the only kind of multiplayer I care about.

Zombies Monsters Robots is ridiculous, cheesy, and so much fun

Hey you, what if I were to tell you about a free-to-play shooter that has you fighting against zombies. Not impressed? Well, I don't blame you. Zombies are kinda all over the place now. Fine, what about a free-to-play shooter...

First gameplay footage of Sacred 3 released

Deep Silver has announced a release date for Sacred 3, scheduled to arrive on August 26 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. They also brought the gift of a first gameplay trailer. I'm a fan of combining the cooperative goal ...

Dungeon Defenders 2 Pre-alpha gameplay with Max Scoville
by Bill Zoeker

For those of you who missed it, despite it being on almost every platform imaginable, Dungeon Defenders is masterful mixture of co-op, RPG, lootfest, tower defense action. Seriously, you can play it on your phone or it's free with an Xbox Gold membership this month. Go try it! Trendy Entertainment isn't resting on its laurels, as development of Dungeon Defenders 2 is well under way. The fine folks at Trendy recently sat down with Max Scoville to show of a sizeable chunk of pre-alpha gameplay of the work in progress, and talk about the advancements and changes they are implementing in DD2.

Impressions: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Xbox 360)

It's as if we slipped into some alternate dimension. The long-awaited Plants vs. Zombies 2 went straight to mobile, passing over PC fans, and while it wasn't bad -- not at all -- I sure lost interest. Instead, it's PopCap's t...

Double Dragon: Neon update addresses online lag

Patrick reviewed the recent PC version of Double Dragon: Neon and found the game itself to be rad but couldn't say the same for its online cooperative play due to input lag. A new update on Steam has been released to remedy t...

New and improved Broforce looks like a real good time

That logo. That trailer. That ... everything. Rather embarrassingly, I'm only now coming to the realization that I should have bothered to pay more attention to Broforce long ago. Finally, a game where I can (essentially) pl...

Plague Inc: Evolved headed to Steam with multiplayer

Ndemic Creations' Plague Inc. is one of those mobile games to do so well that it would be silly not to bring it to other platforms, in this case PC. An expanded version of the game, Plague Inc: Evolved, is headed to Steam Ear...

Okay, sure: Metal Slug 3 hits Steam next month

I have lost track of the number of times I've bought Metal Slug 3, which usually isn't a good sign -- but it's one of those timeless games and I can't help myself. Absolutely no regrets. Temptation will arise once again in Fe...

Cut the red wire! Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Asymmetric cooperative multiplayer is an idea that I always love to see in action. Artemis has done a good job proving that the concept is sound, if not a bit cumbersome to execute. The newest game that falls into the catego...

Starbreeze's Storm pitched as 'Payday in space'

Little is known about Starbreeze Studios' upcoming game Cold Mercury other than that it is (or was, as of 2012) going to be free to play. According to one of the company's investor reports, the game was eventually merged with...

Double Dragon: Neon coming to Steam with online co-op

Midnight City has announced the PC version of Double Dragon: Neon and the big new addition for Steam is the inclusion of online cooperative play. That's more than enough reason to play this again, in part, for its killer sou...

The winner of Destructoid's best 2013 co-op multiplayer

Sometimes, there is nothing better than getting together with friends, online or in person, and working together toward a single goal. Together, everybody either succeeds happily or fails hilariously. With the right game, it ...

New Monaco update streamlines campaign, tweaks levels

Whilst it was well received by critics, sold over 275,000 copies and I did enjoy my first hands-on experience with the game, Monaco sadly never hooked me in. Maybe it was the lack of regular co-op buddies or some confusing le...

Nominees for Destructoid's best of 2013 co-op multiplayer

LEGO The Hobbit sure looks familiar

This trailer for LEGO The Hobbit checks all of the usual boxes for these titles. Coming off of LEGO The Lord of the Rings and its rather neat open-ended world, I'm curious to see how this new game will differ. The silliness ...
