Serving as one of the most inventive cooperative games of the past decade, It Takes Two is not playable solo. Designed with co-op multiplayer in mind, this is a game about two parents who are on the brink of divorce. While the story itself might leave a little to be desired, the gameplay is outstanding, offering smart puzzles and obstacles that must be overcome through jolly cooperation. The setpieces are wild, the gameplay is varied, and the sheer imaginative design is unlike anything weve seen in recent memory. This game is true to its name, too, as it drives home the idea of working together. This theme is presented in the gameplay, as well as in the story, as the two still have to be there for their daughter. The best thing is that you only need one copy to play  each one comes with a pass so you can enjoy it with a friend without having to purchase two.Read our full It Takes Two reviewRead lessRead moreThe Return of a Visionary  Josef Fares and Hazelight

Theres never been a better time to dive into Destiny 2, a game that has come a long way since its launch in 2017. Its even better on PS5, running at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.

TPlatforms PC (Microsoft Windows), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5Genre Role-playing (RPG), AdventureDeveloper Counterplay GamesPublisher Gearbox PublishingRelease November 12, 2020Godfall on PS5 certainly isnt the best reason to get a PS5, but despite its flaws, its a fun action game when played with friends. Referred to as a looter-slasher, Godfall takes the familiar loot-based mechanics popularized by Diablo, Borderlands, and Destiny and mixes in some fun, fluid melee combat. You can play in groups of three while taking down enemies, bosses, and, of course, gathering loot. A healthy mixture of light and heavy attacks with a simple yet effective parry system help to make Godfall feel great, even if its a tad repetitive at times. Its ever-so-satisfying to see those numbers go up when you find new gear, and thats what makes this game fun. Just ignore the bland story, reused level design, and mission structure, and youll have a good time  more so with friends.Read our full Godfall reviewRead lessRead more

MPlatforms PlayStation 5Genre Role-playing (RPG), Hack and slash/Beat 'em upDeveloper Bluepoint GamesPublisher Sony Interactive EntertainmentRelease November 12, 2020Demons Souls might not be the first game people think about when talking about multiplayer, but online play is at this games core. Playing Demons Souls is most enjoyable when taking advantage of multiplayer. Youll be invaded by enemy players, get help from friends, and utilize the community to manipulate the games World Tendency. And trust us, youre going to need the help when its time to take on the games toughest bosses. The Souls games are notoriously difficult, as you probably already know, and Demons Souls for PS5 is no different. Remember, though, that the bosses gain extra health when you bring in real players to help, so keep that in mind before you go on a summoning spree. Typically, youll only ever need one additional player to take down a challenging foe. Make sure to be on the lookout for enemy invaders, though, as they can easily take you down from behind if you arent paying attention. Demons Souls is iconic for a reason, so do yourself a favor and check it out if you like RPG gaming.Read lessRead more
