You can play Rock, Paper, Scissors in Helldivers 2

Helldivers 2 has had one heck of a time since it was released on Feb. 8, and it’s easy to see why: The third-person shooter is both hilarious and explosively fun. It’s also filled with little moments that add up to one special experience. One example of Helldivers 2’s attention to detail is in its emotes. There are plenty of two-person emotes that emphasize the cooperative experience, including one that lets you play Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Helldivers 2 isn’t on Xbox, but these Game Pass titles can help fill the void

Helldivers 2 is a PlayStation console exclusive, so it’s not available on Xbox Series X or S. Not only has Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer voiced his disappointment in this, but so have many Helldivers 2 players, who are asking for more backup in the fight against the Terminids and Automatons.

Helldivers 2 patch fixes quickplay and crash bugs as Arrowhead work on AFK kick option and login rate limits

Last night I tried to host a Helldivers 2 co-op mission and the "ready up" button froze up. I spammed it in a panic while the randos in my voice channel fumed at the delay. Then I popped us out of the drop pods, attempted to quit the game in embarrassment, and the PC promptly crashed. Another blow for managed democracy!

In 2018, less than a year after MOBA-hero shooter hybrid Gigantic launched, developer Motiga announced the game’s closure. Despite the initially positive reception to Gigantic’s colorful mash-up of two popular genres, the game “did not resonate with as many players as we’d hoped,” developers said at the time.

Helldivers 2 updates could bring back the first game's sneaky teleporting Illuminate faction

Nose around Helldivers 2's Galactic War map and you might notice that there's a lot of empty space. Around half the celestial sphere is given over to the dominions of the Automatons and Terminids, leaving ample room for another enemy faction to be inserted via free update or paid DLC. What could that next faction be? Surely it can't be any worse than a horde of giant bugs or a legion of robots. Surely it can't be, say, a highly advanced elder species of teleporting illusionists equipped with lightning guns and cloaking devices. Oh dear.

We suppose this shouldn't be a revelatory statement for Arrowhead Game Studios to make, but its recently released co-op shooter, Helldivers 2, will remain a strictly co-op shooter. The PS5 and PC title has been a big hit so far, with overwhelmingly positive reception, selling over a million copies at this point, and reaching record high figures on Steam for PlayStation. Despite that, there's some pushback against the game from those demanding it add competitive, or PvP, modes.

Dying Light 2 Gets Full-On Gunplay, Improved Visuals This Week Alongside “Reloaded” Edition

Dying Light 2 Stay Human may be a first-person game, but developer Techland were always insistent it wasn’t a first-person shooter. While there were a few hacked-together firearms in the game, their use was very limited – the game was almost all about melee combat. This was explained in-game by the fact that Dying Light 2 takes place a couple of decades after the first game in a world that’s essentially returned to a feudal society where most mechanical things, including guns, have broken down or been destroyed.

Supernatural spaceship shooter Underspace shows admirable ambition in its Next Fest demo

I respect a game with wild ambition. Declaring your game "the spiritual successor to Freelancer" is bold and ambitious, considering how the spaceship sim is still so beloved after 20 years that our readers voted it your 16th favourite space game of all time. This ambition is wild when the tiny development team is led by someone best known for replacing Skyrim's dragons with Thomas The Tank Engine. So while I'm not much of a spaceship sort, I had to check out the demo for Underspace, which aims to combine Freelancer shoot-o-trading space action with a dash of Lovecraftian horror.

Palworld's community manager reminds people impatient for updates that playing other games is fine

If you told me at the start of the year that Palworld would break Steam records, I would've done a hearty "no no" chuckle. But here we are, with the survival game exceeding 19 million players and Pocketpair probably wondering how they managed such a feat.

Palworld's community manager Bucky has gently reminded folks that not only is this discourse "lazy", but to play other games instead.
