State of Decay

State of Decay's multiplayer/co-op has been nixed

Undead Labs hints at possible future State of Decay games

Undead Labs' State of Decay has been a hit by all metrics. It's Xbox Live Arcade's fastest-selling original game, and it's been well-received by critics. The only thing that's missing and that players are clamoring for is cooperative play, which the developers have intended to release as downloadable content.

Well, those plans have changed. Undead Labs has confirmed to IGN that the co-op DLC is dead in the water. It sounds like the project was a bigger undertaking than Undead thought it would be, as the studio explained that retrofitting State of Decay to add that component would likely take the rest of 2013 and well into 2014.

However, the developers sound like they're far from done with the new IP. They promised that "co-op multiplayer will be the absolute heart of any future State of Decay games." I guess that's not surprising; games with this type of success rarely vanish into the ether.

Trubbish is the best Pokemon because he's basically a pile of trash.

CONTROVERSY: I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Black right now and the truth of the matter is that Ninja Gaiden 2 is the better game. The combat is just so much better, and the pacing is as well. NGB is still a 10/10 to me though. NGB's combat is just alot slower

Since I was a lad who actually followed Pokemon, Scyther was green and sharp and cut his way to my little heart, where he remains today.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.
