Dying Light's asymmetric multiplayer has a gross catch

Techland's Dying Light is just the latest game to include asymmetric multiplayer into its fold. Seems like everyone's doing it these days; it's been all the rage since Left 4 Dead did it all those years ago. B...

Review: Chariot photo
Review: Chariot
by Brett Makedonski

Local cooperative play is something that's been increasingly neglected in an age of videogames that pushes online connectivity seemingly first and foremost. It's ironic that titles like Destiny are the current benchmark for social experiences, when all communication is done through a headset. After all, it really doesn't get more personal than sitting next to someone on a couch and working (almost literally) hand-in-hand to achieve a goal.

Frima Studio hasn't forgotten these golden moments of yesteryear, and aims to recapture them with Chariot. The developers succeeded in their ambition. In fact, they pull it off so well, that you might find yourself short-changed when you don't have a partner in crime readily handy.

Free update for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare adds tweaked classes, tacos photo
Free update for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare adds tweaked classes, tacos
by Darren Nakamura

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare has already done right by its users by providing good post-launch support via free downloadable content, and it is continuing on that path with tomorrow's Legends of the Lawn update.

The DLC features a host of character variants that add options to both sides of play. Additionally, a new mode called Taco Bandits is included, which is described as capture the flag, but with tacos instead of flags.

Legends of the Lawn should release for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One tomorrow, at the low price of zero dollars. You can't argue with that.

There's a replacement for Destiny's Loot Cave

In its update for Destiny that put an end to the oh-so-effective Loot Cave, Bungie noted that "shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played." That well-known spot is now less desirable ...

PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend photo
PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

Weekends sure are good at going by too quickly. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it were the end of the week. Sony isn't helping, either -- its unlocking online multiplayer for PlayStation 4 owners who aren't subscribed to PlayStation Plus this weekend.

Those users will gain access starting Friday, September 26 at 12:01am Pacific and it'll carry through Sunday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific. All you need to do to take part is log into your system during those times -- simple as that. What to play, though.
